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.
“But the glow of the stars is just a faint glimmer compared to the magnificence of the kickass Rebel Fleet just outside!”
The Rebels in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back are a ragtag group of resistance fighters. They have desperately put together a fleet of starships and starfighters as they prepare to assault the Empire. This fleet is one of the most iconic scenes from Empire Strikes Back, and a lot of kids who saw it in theaters wanted to create their own in Lego. For many years this proved challenging; but now with a lot of time, artistic inspiration, and a lot of money, you too can create your own Lego Star Wars Fleet.
Mortesv, the self-styled Admiral of the Rebel Fleet, has spent a good chunk of time recreating the fleet in Lego. The whole project is mostly in scale. The stars of the show are huge Lego MOCs of the Redemption and Tantive IV. If you look carefully you can even find a few unwelcome guests among the fleet.
There are 52 ships represented here. 15 X-Wings, 16 Y-Wings, 6 B-Wings, 5 A-Wings, 3 GR-75 Medium Transports, 2 TIE Fighters, 1 Corellian Corvette (Tantive IV), 1 Nebulon-B Escort Frigate (The Redemption), 1 Firespray-class interceptor (Slave 1),1 Lambda-class T-4a Shuttle (Tyderium), and 1 Millennium Falcon.
A whole system of clear support structures and connectors keep the Rebel Fleet afloat. This helps keep the focus on the ships themselves. With all the detail and greebling the last thing you want to do is hide anything behind ugly structures.
