Lately, LEGO has been putting together some pretty awesome sets that are just as cool for adult collectors as for kids. In fact, some of them are probably geared towards those older master builders, such as the massive Ghostbusters firehouse and the recently revealed 1966 Batman series Batcave. But when it comes to Star Wars, most of their sets are still geared towards kids, and some builders just want their LEGO Star Wars vehicles bigger and better.
That’s where master builder Peter Brookdale comes into play with his custom LEGO AT-AT from The Empire Strikes Back that was created with over 6,000 pieces, making it six times bigger than the official LEGO set. Check it out below! Read More »

Fans of Star Wars and LEGO must be some of the most dedicated and patient people.

And now one fan of both has built another impressive custom set that is massive and cool.
KW Vauban has built an Ewok village from Return of the Jedi that is no less than three feet tall, which is pretty much as tall as Wicket and the rest of the Ewoks from the forest moon of Endor. Check it out! Read More »

There have been a few different LEGO versions of the iconic Millennium Falcon from Star Wars over the years. There have been two minifigure scale versions of the ship, from the original trilogy and The Force Awakens, and then there’s a more impressive Ultimate Collector’s Series version that usually costs upwards of $5,000 nowadays.

With Star Wars Battlefront on the shelves as another way of fueling the hype train on track to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, fans have been doing their fair share of blasting both Rebels and Imperials in the video game world. But one fan wanted to do some blasting with the weight of LEGO in his hands.
Flickr user and Star Wars fan Nick Jensen has recreated a life-size version of the E-11 blaster rifle, which fans will know as the blaster carried by Stormtroopers in the original Star Wars trilogy. They occasionally use the gun to hit their targets, but mostly it’s just to make a lot of noise and flashing red lights. But this looks like quite the deadly piece of LEGO weaponry. Read More »
