Chapter 5: The Gunslinger, A Lego Mandalorian MOC

Chapter 5: The Gunslinger, A Lego Mandalorian MOC

“Chapter 5: The Gunslinger” is another entry in the Lego Mandalorian series created by ctr_bricks. This time around we are on the most famous of Star Wars planets, Tatooine. Which just happens to be one of ctr_bricks favorite locations. The desert sand of this Lego MOC is spilling over its display base. A great effect. This time around there are four Minifigures featured: the Mandalorian, Toro Calican, and two different Tusken. Toro Calican uses a rubber band to represent a bandana/mask. Toro is trying to trade with the Tuskens and their Bantha. The lumbering beast is actually brick built with a variety of odd pieces. Brown Lego vines, whips, and droid arms are all used to great effect. Even tan radar dishes are being used as giant lips.

Star Wars Celebration Exclusive Lego Set. The Tatooine Mini-Build.

Lego Star Wars, Tatooine Mini Build

Star Wars Celebration is making a whole lot of news this week. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the big Star Wars: The Force Awakens Teaser #2 release, or the Star Wars Battlefront info. Lego has even released a Star Wars Celebration Exclusive set called the Tatooine Mini-Build. It features 178 pieces and 1 C-3PO Minifigure. The set replicates a Moisture Farm (Lars?), a Sandcrawler, a landspeeder, and mini-builds of C-3PO, R2D2, Luke Skywalker (?), and 2 Jawas. The set is pretty charming but there is no attempt at staying in one scale. If you happen to be in Anaheim, and have tickets to the Celebration, make sure to pick up on of these exclusives!

“Brick Patrol I” by Peter Fendrik, Lego Star Wars 3D Art

PeterFendrik's Brick Patrol 3D Lego Star Wars by Peter Fendrik

There are a couple of (internet) famous art pieces done involving Lego. One of those is “Brick Patrol I” by Peter Fendrik. This 3D Lego Star Wars render is almost perfect. The composition works well, the depth of field is great, and the color are vibrant. This is how everyone imagines their Lego bricks while building. What really makes this are the two Lego built planets in the background. These Lego Stormtroopers make a perfect desktop background.

Lego Star Wars: Jabba’s Sail Barge (75020) Reviewed by Csacsa234 @ Eurobricks

Csacsa234's Lego Star Wars Jabba's Sail Barge 75020 Review 01

The new Lego Star Wars: Jabba’s Sail Barge (75020) has officially been released and is starting to show up at some retailers. This set comes with 4 minifigures (Slave Leia, Max Rebo, Weequay, and Ree-Yees), 1 bigfigure (Jabba the Hutt) and 1 droid (R2D2). It contains many hidden play features, and some nice details. Jabba’s Sail Barge comes in at 850 pieces and a $119.99 price tag. Which is a good deal cheaper then the previous Jabba’s Sail Barge (6210) on the secondary market.

Eurobricks user Csacsa234 has already posted a full photo review. Noting that there are hidden pirate cannons, flick firing missiles, undercarriage wheels, a removable deck/roof, and foldable sides/walls. This set is full of play features.

Inside Jabba’s Sail Barge is a kitchen, jail, throne room, and a music stage. Max Rebo and his futuristic piano (or is it an organ?) steal the show from Jabba in this set. He just happens to be a perfect Lego minifigure, oozing cuteness and a hot blue color scheme. Interestingly, Lego has provided film (thin plastic) sails for the Sail Barge which will hopefully last a long time. There are also 26 stickers, which luckily are not required. Jabba’s Sail Barge looks great with and without stickers.

The Lego minifigures are extremely detailed. With a newish version of R2D2 (grey top, and better printing), Slave Leia, Jabba the Hutt, Ree-Yees, Weequay, and Max Rebo. While the Jabba the Hutt and his goons look great the real star is Max Rebo (sorry Leia). Just look at that little blue dude.

Mos Eisley Cantina

ArSparfel’s Mos Eisley Cantina

One of the most iconic scenes from Star Wars is the hustle and bustle of the Mos Eisley Cantina. Lego has never done a good set based on the Cantina, which has caused a lot of people to take it on themselves.

This Mos Eisley Cantina is the creation of Flickr user Ar Sparfel. It has everything a good Cantina would need. The great central bar where Ponda Baba losses his arm, the band Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes rocking out, and even the booth where Han shot Greedo first. So much great stuff in a relatively small build. It even looks like a roof may have been built, which would be great to see in the future.
