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!
This nano scale Lego AT-ST is created by NS Brick Designs. A neat thing about this little mech is that it is made out of very common parts, usually the kind you get two or three extras of in a set. You can find lightsaber hilts, the small Lego guns, and even a Minifigures hand in this build. The chicken walker style design of the AT-ST is surprisingly sturdy at this scale, and is not as fragile as it looks. The scene is finished off with a SNOT style rock base, and a little Lego antenna (which represents a Stormtrooper).
NS Brick Designs made a quick set of instructions to show how to build your own nano AT-ST. The whole thing uses just 18 common Lego pieces. The most confusing part is in step two. There are three 1×1 clips and a 1×1 brick. The two on the bottom are facing away from each other and connected by the clip on the top. This is a fun little build
Lego has a popular line of Star Wars figures, built using figure parts, Bionicle parts, and Technic parts. But, it seems that none of the characters from The Mandalorian have been released. Lucasfilm, Disney, and hundreds of manufacturers have underestimated just how popular the show would become. Lego only has a few sets released in the Lego Star Wars theme, and none of them seem to be accurate or what people want most. Accurate Mandalorian Minifigures and figures, and Baby Yoda are specifically what fans want. The good news is that they will eventually be made, but in the mean time fans have been creating their own. This Lego figure of Din Djarin is created by Wesley. A lot of work has been put into making it as accurate as possible. Even a custom head piece has been made that involves modeling new details and custom paint. The end result looks great, especially in photos. This Mandalorian Lego figure also features some standard Lego pieces, you can find Nexo Knight shields in the armor, some 1×1 grey clips, a brick built belt, and brick built guns.
