Babu Yoda is the biggest (hah!) thing to come out of Star Wars in the last few years. There are so many ways to build a Lego figure of this adorable alien. This Baby Yoda is a Lego MOC created by car_mp. This brick built figure has a few options for display. The ears, mouth, fingers, and arms can be moved. This means you can pose him however you want. Baby Yoda can even hold some delicious soup. This version has a rounder face than some other creations. It makes him look a bit more cartoonish, and a bit more cute. The child also comes with a nice tan robe. The lighter tan Lego pieces give the clothes some welcome detail, especially in the collar.
“This is no cave.” Those famous words spoken by Han Solo as they realize they could be trapped inside a giant space slug. This Lego MOC called “Space Slug Escape” is created by DarthBricks. This is an entry into Vignweek, a Lego vignette building challenge. The specific theme is space. The scene has been built on a 16×17 stud base. The asteroid is pretty accurate to Star Wars. The rock work is simple, and it help to focus the attention on the action happening in the center. The space slug is appropriately toothy. The transparent blue engine trail grabs your attention. And, the micro scale Millennium Falcon is perfect.
In Star Wars, Count Dooku (or Darth Tyranus) is a major character in Episodes II and III. You know Dooku is an important person, he has palace and a castle. The palace has been a setting for multiple Clone Wars episodes but the relatively obscure castle has mainly been featured in the comic books. This Lego version of Count Dooku’s Castle is created by soccerkid6. Built as an entry into Vignweek, a vignette building challenge. The scene features a towering castle set against the landscape of Kohlma, the Moon of Dread. A micro build of Slave I can be found flying over the rocky landscape. The tall spires and domes fit perfectly in the Star Wars venacular. A lot of the circular spires are built up with Lego wheel rim pieces. A great way to vary the patterns and appearance of the castle.
You don’t get to see much of the day to day life in Star Wars. What does everyone do on their time off? Maybe they just hang out in their room and relax. This Lego Star Wars Cyberpunk Room is created by Aubrey Beelen. They wanted to merge Star Wars with Cyberpunk, while keeping the spirit of both. The end result is this amazing MOC. Its biggest feature is the custom lighting. Fully built-in and hidden LEDs of different colors stand out in the dark and help to set the mood. The cityscape outside the two windows sets the scene while adding some depth. There are some nice details in this packed creation. You can find a cute rubber ducky in the shower, a collection of helmets, a gun collection, a scary spider, and a hydroponic garden. There are a lot more details which can only be seen when the lights are on. You almost want to see two of these side by side to see everything.
This Lego Star Wars Bust of Greedo is created by Grayson. Built as an entry into the BioCup2020, a two part challenge. The first goal is the use mostly non-system pieces, so a lot of Bionicle and Technic. The other goal is to design something to do with the future. Greedo is a great subject for a challenge like this. His alien design lets you get creative with pieces. You can find one big Bionicle piece used for the head, and another two used for the shoulders. The antannae / feelers have been created with Technic pieces. The use of the Lego hoses is a great way to create clothing. This Lego bust has a very simple but great looking base / stand. He even comes with a separate sculpture of his blaster.
Queen Amidala is about to get wrapped up in the Star Wars. She has to figure out how to stop the Trade Blockade which will result in her becoming a galactic Senator. During that time she will get mixed up with a nine year old boy, who she will eventually marry. During which she will be battling droids and surviving the battle of Geonosis. A very busy future for her. The peaceful halls of her palace on Naboo is a perfect scene for a Lego MOC. This Lego scene is called “Queen Amidala” and is created by AC Pin. The Amidala Minifigure is one of the more rare ones in Lego Star Wars, having only appeared in one set. Which means a used Minifig currently goes for about $40! What better way to display a rare figure than to base a whole build around it. The palace features some neat little details. The pattern on the floor, with the 1×2 grills along the walls looks very nice. The columns are appropiatly ornate, with Lego Battle Droids used in the column crown detailing. The stained glass and chandelier stand out too. What really sells this scene is the lighting, with it shining through the windows and highlighting Amidala. It gives a somber feel to the whole thing.
This is the “Clone Patrol” Lego vignette built by Josh. It depicts the busy streets of Coruscant from Star Wars, and one of the Biker Advanced Recon Commando’s (BARC) on patrol. The trooper is riding on one of the cutest and smallest speeders around. This build uses a lot of newer pieces. You can find transparent Nexo Knights shields being used for architectural details, and the new 1×1 flat triangle plates for the flooring. The transparent blue windows look like they are upside down Lego Dimensions function circles. Details like these are a great way to lend a science fiction look to the scene. These type of small vignettes are a great way to display your Star Wars Minifigures.
The Old Republic is a part of Star Wars that is often overlooked. This time period is currently being explored in the MMO video game. The setting of which takes place thousands of years before the Star Wars films. BobDeQuatre has created a Lego MOC based on the Old Republic called “Ambush at the old Sith temple on Takodana.” The planet Takodana has recently been seen in the Force Awakens. In this scene the forest type planet is the location of a hidden Sith temple. A neat detail with this build is the lighting built into the Lightsabers. Specifically they are the Lightailing brand LED lightsabers, which look great. Featuring Minifigures of Nidara Ludimi, Darth Severus, Nell Catagaan, and Grayman. There is a whole backstory for these characters that BobDeQuatre has posted with these photos. Who will win, probably the good guys!
In Star Wars, the Rebels always seem to build their bases underground. The nature of having to hide from the Empire / First Order. They have all sorts of neat underground hideouts, from icy caves to salty caves. This underground Rebel Base Lego MOC is created by Graham Gidman and Gareth Gidman. It features a desert / beech cave landscape with two main doors leading inside. There are a variety of speeder bikes outside, and even a lookout post. As with most Star Wars locations there are a large amount of giant laser cannons. Inside there are three rooms built. A logistics / cargo bay / meeting room, a short hallway, and the command center. This Lego build is a great example of building landscape. A variety of stacked plates, slopes, and small bricks create a great terrain. The rocks change the building direction, usually a technique used for SNOT style builds, but here the studs are showing off. They give a great impression of rough dirt.
There are so many Lego Baby Yoda builds out there, and each one is special in its own way. It is always interesting to see how designers approach the same subject matter in unique ways. This Lego MOC is called “The Child” and is created by NS Brick Designs. This little Yoda is built using SNOT techniques. Especially noticeable in the robes. The work done around the collar and the end at the bottom. A few of the great details here include the 1×1 green clips for hands, and the 1×2 jumper plate for a mouth. For display, the scattering of olive Lego plants around the scene gives a good impression of an alien planet with out actually building one. In the end, another great Baby Yoda!
