One of the things I love about this ever expanding series by builder dib b is the fact that the Millennium Falcon is slightly different in every one (no really, look at the previous builds). This one is from my favorite scene in The Force Awakens, with Rey and Fin escaping Jakku aboard the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.
Carter Witz recreated the stunning new lightsaber duel we saw in the Force Awakens. Excellent rockwork, with Rey positioned just over the edge as Starkiller Base splits apart. The trees made by Carter are also well done, though a tad skinny. I continue to see just how useful minifigure arms and hands can be to a wide range of creations. I also appreciate the base of this model, just the way the rockwork meets the blade border. Very sleek!
BB-8 is pretty much universally adored, and since the release of The Force Awakens we've seen thousands of iterations of this little guy. He's on everything from sports bottles to hats. Being nothing but round makes him naturally difficult to build in bricks, but our love for him means that builders keep doing it. Check out this version by Takamichi Irie, not only does it look great, the motorized functions really bring him to life.
He's the best pilot in the resistance, and a hero of the republic, he's Poe Dameron. And builder Takamichi Irie is such a fan he's built his costume. But it's no ordinary cosplay, the helmet, chest box, pistol and many other accessories are all brick-built. It's a Star Wars, costuming and LEGO mashup, and it's pretty awesome.
Who knew that BB units could be customized to such great lengths? I wonder which option Rey will go with first. . . Builder Pangeran Panda has designed a grand total of 12 different modifications for one of our new favorite droids. It also appears we have been given the crossovers between Star Wars, DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Pokemon, and Hello Kitty that some fans may or may not have wanted. Which model is your favorite?
When are the bad guys from Star Wars ever going to figure out that the giant "doomsday weapon" approach never works? While it might not be so good for sustained intimidation, they do make for pretty awesome play sets, as demonstrated by this excellent MOC by Forgotten Days. There's multiple levels and chambers to recreate the action from The Force Awakens, including a giant Snoke hologram. Everything you need for hours of play, that is until the good guys blow it up...again.
