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.
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.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has an official release date. It will arrive on October 20th, 2020 (10-20-2020 or 20-10-2020 depending on preferred style). The newest video game in the series will feature storylines from all nine films. With five levels per movie, which works out to 45 levels in game. Developed by Traveller’s Tales, the new game will have around 500 playable characters. Admiral Ackbar, Yaddle, and Zorii Bliss are just a few of those characters. The game will be available on all the current systems, Windows PC, Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
This is Wicket the Ewok as created by Bruce Lowell. A cute little teddy bear alien from Endor. He stars in such Star Wars movies as Return of the Jedi, the Rise of Skywalker, the Ewok Adventure, Ewoks: The Battle for Endor, and in Ewoks the animated show. Even though they helped destroy the Death Star with spears and traps, they are not very popular in certain crowds. But this Lego MOC will convince you that Wicket just wants a hug. This brick built Ewok is built using SNOT techniques in a very cartoon style. He features a spear, and his red poncho. He looks ready for a giant Ewok Celebration with their new golden god: C3PO.
In Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, the Imperial Outpost on Endor is the location of the shield generator protecting the new Death Star. On the ground the Ewoks and Rebels fight to shut down the outpost, while the Imperials try to defend. This location has been recreated in Lego in Minifigure scale. The Lego Imperial Outpost is created by Maciej Szymański. The finished build features thousands and thousands of bricks. There are multiple giant trees, the landing pad, an Imperial Shuttle (Lambda-class T4a), an AT-AT Walker, two AT-ST Walkers, multiple speeder bikes, and a whole lot of Stormtroopers.
The Imperial Outpost is completely wired with multiple electric and mechanical features. The whole base is lit up at night with LEDs, which are all hidden away. No cords in sight on Endor. The Imperial Shuttle features raising wings, working landing gear, an opening ramp, and the shuttle can take off and land on the platform. The mechanical stuff is all achieved with well hidden Lego Power Functions motors. Check out the video below to see it all in action.
The scale of this build is massive. The end model is over four feet tall. Beginning with the first plan the construction of this Lego build took around 13 years. This epic outpost is a finished build, there are no plans to recreate the bunkers, generators, or massive radar dish. It would triple the size, and become too unwieldy for a single person. Let alone the cost…
In Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Han Solo finds himself in some trouble while on Cloud City. Lego has released an official set (75137) based on this exact moment back in 2016. If you imagine what a much more elaborate version of that set would be, than you would get this Lego MOC. The Carbon Freeze Chamber is the creation of I Scream Clone. A huge build, with fancy LED lighting that really helps to set the mood. The design is built around a giant decagon that uses a lot of 1×2 flat Lego grills. This allows the light to shine up through the structure, which is accurate to the film version. Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Lando Calrissian, Princess Leia, Chewbacca and C3p0 are all in attendance. Along with a whole host of Stormtroopers and other onlookers. A few of the many great details includes Chewy carrying C3P0’s broken remains, the various tubes and tanks around the room, and the maintenance workers down below. The center of the machine can even lower and raise as Han Solo gets frozen.
The designer, I Scream Clone, has even created a set of instructions for this Lego Carbon Freeze Chamber. You will need around 3,000 Lego pieces and a few LED strips to recreate this. You can find those instructions over here: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-12879/
Darth Vader made a huge impression back in Star Wars: A New Hope, leading an assault against the Tantive IV. The Rebels try to mount a defense and protect Princess Leia, but they are no match against the Empire. This opening scene is so iconic, it makes a reappearance almost 40 years later in Rogue One. This Hallway Battle Lego MOC is created by CozzD. The interior hallway walls look great when lit from above by bright white lights. The iconic doorway has been recreated here too, and includes one well placed sticker. The Rebels look ready to defend it to the end, but as you can see below it doesn’t go well for them.
