Hi guys, so I was somewhat inspired by a recent job where I got to work at the legendary Abbey Road studios! I decided to make my own version of the iconic Beatles album cover using a mix of the new Beatles mini figs (for the yellow submarine) and some of my favourite imperials.

I call this build 'The Imperial March'

I tried to get some of the background detail into this build but felt the car would be the wrong scale so opted to leave it out.

(and yes I know that Boba and  Kylo aren't technically Imperial!)

Hah, this is so cool! :D I also bought the Yellow sub, this is a very nice crossover! Although I would've put the plain and simple stormie helmet on Ringo rather than Paul but your call :D

Thanks mate! Do you know what, I went through so many variations of how they should pose, who should go where, which character could where what! In a way the possibility with this is endless! I've also done a version with Luke, liea, Han and Chewie that works nicely too!

First of all. BOO! Bad pun, okay not really, it's in fact a very funny play on the album.

Second excellent execution! Looks great!
