May the 4th…

Oh go on then… With just one minute of Star Wars day to go (and the most Star Wars-y Lego website seemingly as dead as Luke Skywalker), here’s a build from a galaxy far, far away. SweStar is the creator of this beautifully built ‘Ultron T6’ Speeder Bike, complete with a desert setting and one of the grey spacey things that seem to be the background of every Star Wars shot. Head to Flickr for more, and we’ll be back tomorrow with things that are not Star Wars-y at all.

Professional Star Wars Post

With the writers at Bricknerd seemingly now working as often as MOCpages‘ servers, it falls to the stupidest Lego site of them all to blog this Star Wars creation. Don’t worry Star Wars fans, we’ve got this!

This is Fuku Saku’s updated TIE Fighter, so called because their pilots were the smartest of all of the Galaxis of Evil’s squadrons, wearing full neck ties in battle.

The TIE Fighter was also the chosen by Lord Commander Dark Vaper as his personal ship, whose permanent eerie cloud and cool laboured breathing helped popularise e-cigarettes.

Dark Vaper’s TIE Fighter included a special ‘cloud extractor’ on the underside to clear the cockpit fog caused by his continual vaping, which Fuku Saku has recreated brilliantly in the image above.

Head to Fuku’s photostream to see more of his updated TIE Fighter whilst we relax over a job well done. Nailed it.

Something Something Darkside

After years of blogging Star Wars creations we’re pretty good at understanding the franchise now. For example we know that this jolly Jedi is off to the beach aboard his hoverbike, where he’ll no doubt use his lite sword to cook up an awesome barbecue for his friends in the Trade Alliance. We have previous bloggee ianying616 to thank for allowing us to show off our immense Star Wars knowledge and there’s more to see of his Technic Jedi Hoverbike at his photostream – click the link above to check it out.

Y-Wing

Regular readers of this dilapidated little corner of the internet will know that here at The Lego Car Blog we do not have an unconditional love for Star Wars. In fact, in a couple of ways (primarily any form of dialogue whatsoever), George Lucas’s most famous movie franchise is so awful it’s almost a parody of itself.

However, in plenty of other regards the Star Wars movies are an absolute triumph, one example being the incredible attention to detail paid to the vehicles in the Star Wars universe. This is one of the most famous, the Koensayr Manufacturing BTL-S3, or ‘Y-Wing’ as it is commonly known.

A multi-role starfighter/bomber, the Y-Wing could serve in both atmospheric conditions – where it could hit 1000km/h – as well as in space, and was in use within the Republic Navy as early as 22 BBY. No, we don’t know when that is either, we pulled it from ‘Wookiepedia’, so best direct any follow up questions there…

This jaw-dropping recreation of the famous Star Wars spaceship comes from Jerac of Flickr, who has recreated the Y-Wing in unbelievable detail. The build is made all the more impressive when you consider that whilst it may not look it, Jerac’s model is only mini-figure scale.

There’s much more to see of Jerac’s incredible creation at his photostream via the link above, which includes the Y-Wing in both its movie and original specifications (which might just be the nerdiest thing we’ve ever written), and if you’d like to learn more about the ‘real’ spaceship (and to see where we plagiarised the stats from) you can visit Wookiepedia here or wait for one of the proper blogs to find this creation too…

Mobquet M-68

This is a Mobquet M-68 landspeeder (of course), and it comes from newcomer barneius industries of Flickr. With our expert knowledge of all things sci-fi we could detail the M-68’s history and technical capabilities but we wouldn’t want to embarrass the other blogs, so instead we’ll simply stick to how deeply, awesomely cool it looks.

Featuring Ford Thunderbird style jet-thruster rear lights, a wing reminiscent of the Plymouth Roadrunner, and an excellent side-stripe, the Mobquet  channels a whole host of classic American metal into its design, with glorious results. Head to barneius industries’ M-68 Flickr album via the link above to see the complete gallery of images and see how many ’60s muscle car references you can spot!

Join the Dark Ride

Darth Vader may be a bit evil, what his penchant for blowing up planets and whatnot, but it’s hard to argue that he’s not cool. Even more so when he’s riding a sweet hog, courtesy of TLCB Master MOCer and vehicle-building legend Bricksonwheels. Join the path to the dark ride via the link above.

Racing Resistance

Lego Star Wars Resistance

We’re not exactly Star Wars connoisseurs here at The Lego Car Blog, so we know even less about ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ than Donald Trump knows about using food banks. OK, full disclosure, we know nothing about ‘Star Wars: Resistance’, but quick Google reveals it to be a CGI cartoon inspired by Japanese anime. And that’s all we’ve got. Nevertheless we do really like the spaceships found within it, if this collection by newcomer Mansur Soeleman is anything to go by. Looking a bit like historic racing cars is a sure way to get TLCB Team on board, and there’s more to see of Mansur’s excellent ‘Star Wars: Resistance’-classic-racing-star fighter-thingies on Flickr.

Eleven Thousand Pieces of the Dark Side

Lego Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer

From our (very) limited knowledge of the Star Wars movie franchise we’ve deduced that the good guys fly things named after letters whilst the bad guys fly things named after shapes. Kind of like an inter-galactic Sesame Street, although we’re not sure Bricknerd would see it that way.

The most powerfully evil of all the bad guys’ flying things are the spherical ones, but the triangles aren’t far behind. This is one such triangle; the ‘Monarch’ Imperial Star Destroyer.

Lego Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer

Built by Flickr’s 0necase this incredible creation is constructed from around 11,000 LEGO bricks, and measures well over a meter in length. The huge engines are even formed by three LEGO Death Star pieces, amongst the largest in LEGO’s range, in a gloriously circuitous homage to the Empire.

There’s much more to see of this astonishing recreation of the second-most-evil of all the shapes in Star Wars at 0necase’s ‘Monarch ISD’ album – click here to join the Dark Side.

The Fastest Hunk of Technic in the Galaxy

Lego Technic Millennium Falcon

Making the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs, defeating the Death Star, rescuing Princess Leia, defeating the Death Star again… the Millennium Falcon has done many things worthy of Star Wars fandom, but the ship has never appeared in Technic form, which is – frankly – all that matters.

Until now that is. Jeroen Ottens received a commission to build a Technic Falcon and he’s done just that, immortalising the modified YT-1300 Corellian light freighter (we Wikipedia-ed it!) in Technic form. There’s a working access ramp, a fully articulated gun turret, and – to the joys of those here at TLCB who have to respond to our mailbox – there are even instructions available too!

There’s more to see of Jeroen’s super starship at both the Eurobricks forum and on Flickr, where a link to building instructions can also be found. Make the jump (in less than twelve parsecs) via the links above.

Friendly Fire

Lego Friends Star Wars B-Wing

The battle between the Dark Side and the… er, Pinkish-Purpley Side continues to rage. Following his previously featured ‘BFF Y-Wing‘, Flickr’s Tyler Sky has jumped to the other end of the Heartlake City Rebel Alliance Alphabet and built this delightfully colourful ‘Friendly B-Wing’. Don’t be fooled by the cutesy exterior though, as the extra large cockpit with two Friends on board allows one of them to focus solely on blowing stuff up. Join the friendly resistance at Tyler’s photostream by clicking here.

Some Like it Hoth

Lego Star Wars Battle of Hoth

It’s a scene that even we’re familiar with; Empire AT-ATs stalking across the snow covered plains of Hoth and towards a Rebel Alliance base soon to be in great peril.

Luke Skywalker, commander of Rogue Squadron and famous for some reason, leads the defence in a company of small Snowspeeders.

And so goes down one of the most memorable battles in the Star Wars franchise, and one that has been recreated beautifully in micro-scale by Flickr’s GolPlaysWithLego. There’s much more of this stellar build to see at Gol’s photostream via the link, where there are also instructions available so you can recreate your very own Battle of Hoth in miniature at home.

Friend in Me, You’ve Got

Lego Friends Y-Wing

As regular readers of this site will know, we’re not a blog that fully appreciates the wonders of the Star Wars franchise. Not so today, as this LEGO Friends Star Wars mash-up is the stuff dreams a made of! Flown by Rebel Alliance pilot Emma, with a gunner and an all-important on-board pet, Tyler Sky (aka Bricksky)’s ‘BFF Y-Wing’ is ready to defend Heartlake City from the forces of the Dark side.

Lego Friends Y-Wing

Ingenious details are in abundance throughout the model, and Tyler has even built a hanger for BFF Y-Wing maintenance and Heartlake City Rebel Alliance tea parties. Join the fight against the Dark Side and make new Friends via the link to the BFF Y-Wing album above!

Something Something Something Dark Side

Lego TIE/x1 Advanced Darth Vader

Ergh, Star Wars… OK, here goes. This is Darth Vader’s TIE/x1 Advanced and… that’s all we’ve got. The proper Lego blogs will probably lose their shit over this build when they find it, so be sure to check them out for a better explanation. In the meantime you can see more of this thoroughly excellent (and commissioned) recreation of Darth Vader’s ride by Jerac at his photostream – Click here to use the force. Or something.

Death Trooper

Lego Death Trooper Motorcycle

The Lego Car Blog Elves are normally fantastically violent creatures. Not today though, as they’re all hiding in their cage room thanks to this, ianying616‘s terrifying ‘Death Trooper’. Based on a previous model by Lazereth LM487, itself based upon the Cyborg Motorbike from the movie ‘Terminator Salvation’ (in a part of the plot that made zero sense), ianying’s bike includes a working piston engine and a frightening-looking Bionicle-esque rider that’s giving the Elves nightmares. See more on Flickr via the link above where there are lots more images available to view, if you’re brave enough.
