It’s May the 4th, a day observed by countless nerds in celebration of a ’70s movie that began part way through for some reason. Star Wars devotees mark the occasion through quiet contemplation, internet forum bickering, and absolutely not taking to girls, because they’re scary. Which is the same as every other day, only this one involves a Star Wars-y pun.
TLCB, what with our formidable knowledge of popular culture and cinema history, are joining the Star Wars Day festivities with a quartet of Tie Fighters, which all probably feature in a movie or something.
Each has come spectacularly built and presented by Flickr’s Jerac, with (clockwise from top left); a TIE Fighter, Iden Versio’s TIE Fighter, a TIE Interceptor, and a Royal Guard TIE Interceptor, which we definitely knew ourselves and aren’t simply quoting the builder.
It means today The Lego Car Blog has more TIEs than a political convention, and thus we feel satisfied we have sufficiently acknowledged this great and noble day and can lay it to rest for another year, unless we forget about it in which case it might end up being longer.
Adherents to the Star Wars religion can see more of Jerac’s stunning brick-built TIE Fighters via the link above, where quite contemplation, internet forum bickering, and absolutely not talking to girls can all be undertaken too.
May the fourth be with you.
