You can never have too many LEGO lightsaber models, and Takamichi Irie is adding another to the growing collection that we've featured here on BrickNerd. As Obi-Wan himself has said, it's an "elegant weapon, for a more civilized age." No Jedi is complete without his iconic weapon, and I'm sure Luke Skywalker himself would be proud of this model.
Although it's widely reviled (and understandably so), I don't outright hate The Phantom Menace. I saw it in theaters when I was 10, so I was just excited to see a new Star Wars movie. Love, hate, or just barely tolerate it, you can't deny it had really nice art direction. This awesome Otoh Gunga Plasma Farm by Inthert, although not seen in the movie, looks like it could be just off screen. There's always a bigger fish...
Well, one destroyer anyway. But it sure is a pretty one: ToaLeewan has done a great job capturing their shape at the scale of the Star Wars Ultrabuild sets. Say what you will about the prequels but I have loads of nostalgia for Droidekas; mainly from playing as them in LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga as a kid.
Robert Lundmark has been producing many fantastic Star Wars replicas in LEGO form. Something worthy of noting is that many of these creations are not built in minifigure scale, but are rather quite larger. Robert's latest work of art is a recreation of Jabba on his...throne inside of his feared palace on Tatooine. This Jabba figure is really my kind of scum, fearless and inventive. I mean that as a complement to the build, but also as a direct quote from Episode VI. No old Jedi mind trick is needed to see that this is a very cool MOC!
There have been lots and lots and lots of interpretations of the iconic X-wing and TIE fighter over the years, but I don't think any quite as tiny-yet detailed as Grantmasters'. Even if there's one I'm forgetting, six and three pieces to a ship, respectively, is pretty darned impressive, and the greeble background works quite well given the small size.
Deep in Maz's castle lays a chest with Luke Skywalker's lightsaber buried away. When Rey follows the sound of a child's voice, it's the saber that calls to her. This build by Forgotten Days shows the scenes from Rey's force vision in chronological order. This is definitely worth more than a quarter portion!
