LEGO Star Wars Sith Fighter Knights of the Old Republic

  There is a really cool project over on LEGO Ideas that we want to tell you about. STAR WARS – Sith Fighter – Knights of the Old Republic is a project we very much want to see happen. It currently has 16 days left and nearly 700 supporters at the time we write this. Here is some info from the description: The Sith fighter was a starfighter that formed the bulk of Darth Revan and Darth Malak’s space forces during the Jedi Civil War, as portrayed in the videogame STAR WARS – Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR), nearly 4000 years before Darth Vader’s rising to power. Revan (soon to be included in this set has a minifig) is the main protagonist of Knights of the Old Republic. As the Dark Lord of the Sith and Master of Darth Malak, Revan was led into a trap where a Jedi…

Custom LEGO SWTOR Blackbolt

You know how we love bringing you cool Star Wars and SWTOR related stuff. And if you’ve followed my posts here over the past few years, you also know that I am a big LEGO fan. So we are very happy to bring you this cool story of a custom LEGO SWTOR Blackbolt. The builder/creator had this to say about it on Reddit: “A couple firsts for me here: first reddit post, first lego set I bought since childhood (Fury Interceptor), and first custom lego build. The ship and its landing platform are entirely built from the Fury set and there were many leftover pieces.” I wonder how long it took to build this? The images in the gallery below give a good guideline of the process of how it was done. I love to see creative projects like this where people take their LEGO sets and make something original…

SWTOR: XS Freighter LDD (with detailed Interior)

As part of the LEGO MOC Showcase at fbtb.net, a user shared some great images of their build of a Star Wars: The Old Republic – XS Freighter: “Hello! I recently finished my SWTOR XS Freighter in LDD and wanted to share it. While I’ve seen cleaner builds (exterior-wise) I feel a sense of accomplishment with this for including a pretty accurate, detailed interior to the ship.” See the full post and images here. There is a lot of great detail, no small parts gone unnoticed and there are even size/scale comparisons. The creator, November2019, says they have been working on the project off and on for a few months. “There were some frustrating hurdles. It was my first time doing something of this complexity in LDD. Figuring out ‘non-standard’, oblique-angle building techniques was really a mind-bender for me. Very fun though.” We think it looks pretty awesome. I can see…

Building the LEGO Death Star

This amazing death star has over 26 minifigures, three floors, and a whole lot of rooms! I really love how much detail went into this thing. The minifigures are well done and finally Lego gives us enough minifigures to really enjoy the set. It has everything from the meeting room to the emperor’s throne room and the detention cell to the trash compactor. Really, really, really, really, really great set! You get all the classic characters, even a few versions of the important ones. The trash compactor is just all right, but most of the other moving parts have the impressive marks of Lego ingenuity. I also love that it takes a long time to build. That helps a little in terms of coming to grips with the fact that you just dropped $400 on a big toy. The fact that it’s 90% gray can get a little tedious. The…

Unsurprisingly fans of the hit movie have been impressed by the creation     It was assembled by a team of 32 people over the course of 17,000 man-hours in Kladno, Czech Republic, on what one assumes was the world’s largest living-room floor. The X-Wing comprises 5.3 million Lego bricks, some 2 million more than the previous title-holder, a robot at Minnesota’s Mall of America. At 43 feet from front to back, it’s actually two…
