“Kill him. Kill him now.” A famous line from one of the most memorable scenes from Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. Cecilia Fritzvold has faithfully recreated this moment in Lego. There are a lot of great details here, but the most impressive is the background. Full of tiny spaceships battling it out. The forced perspective works extremely well.
“I initially tried to include a larger area of the room in my build, as I wanted to include at least the bottom part of the stairs they walk down, and leave some more space for Obi-Wan, but I had to cut it down a bit as I couldn’t fit it all on 32×32. It was also very important to me from the start to be able to show the battle going on outside with the use of some micro spaceships, so I had to leave some room for those behind the windows.”

For the 2015 Star Wars Celebration, held in Anaheim California, Lego created a whole series of Lego Star Wars posters. The posters are all recreations of famous Star Wars posters, except in Lego. The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith are based on the theatrical release posters, while A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi are based on the Special Edition release. This collection makes for a great series by avoiding the teaser posters, and the original trilogy theatrical posters. A continuity is presented that just looks awesome. Maybe in the future Lego will revisit this idea and release more Lego Star Wars posters (the original Star Wars poster sure would be appreciated).
These Lego Star Wars posters were given out at the Star Wars Celebration, if you didn’t attend, there are many of these available online at various auction websites (eBay!).

George Lucas set out to create a prequel to his most famous trilogy, and the crowning achievement of his work is embodied in this Revenge of the Sith scene. Who will forget the moment when it is revealed that Palpatine has turned Anakin Skywalker into Frankenstein (Darth Vader). NOOO, indeed.
This iconic scene has been recreated in super detail by markus19840420. Featuring a circular design, and some amazing greebling. It is easy to say that this Lego version has surpassed the quality of the original.
