  1. Dear LEGO & Star Wars Fans, I am more than proud to announce that my long-term project, which I started in February 2019, is now complete: The Original Trilogy in LEGO. It took me a total of 5 years to complete this project. A long time that required a lot of perseverance and passion (especially from my wife ) A New Hope took 15 months, The Empire Strikes Back took 16 months, and Return of the Jedi took incredible 27 months. Throughout this lengthy period, I've been able to learn a great deal and I'm already looking forward to applying these new skills to future LEGO Star Wars projects. And now, without further ado, enjoy all the photos and MOCs 5 Years of hard work. My Journey of recreating the Original Star Wars Trilogy in LEGO. by Codyaner.bricks, on Flickr Link to the Album with all Original Trilogy Scenes: HERE Link to the Album with all A New Hope Scenes: HERE Link to the Album with all The Empire Strikes Back Scenes: HERE Link to the Album with all Return of the Jedi Scenes: HERE I hope you you all enjoyed the project and the journey Stay tuned, the next project will be announced very soon! Kind regards, Codyaner

    [MOC] Midi-Scale AT-AT Diorama

    Discovering the Battle of Hoth on screen is one of those childhood moments I'll always remember. So my first ever walker MOC had to be the AT-AT from Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. And for such an iconic scene, making a diorama-style build was mandatory. At only 19cm (7,4") high, this Midi-Scale AT-AT consists of 924 pieces (1,317 in total with the diorama base & T-47), and is accurately Nanofig-scaled. It features a movable head and fully articulated legs, allowing many different poses. Working at such a compact scale, capturing fine surface detail and smooth, gapless angles for the body required a great deal of unique techniques. My main goal was to make the model feel deceivingly heavy and massive despite its small size, and of course achieve that prop / toy vibe I'm so fond of. The most challenging parts of the AT-AT were definitely the head and legs: the head for its subtle angles and challenging shape, and the legs for proportions, joints, feet, and very slight width differences as you go towards the bottom. Nanofigs (or trophy figs) scale perfectly to both the AT-AT and T-47, which also scale accurately to each other. The diorama base allows the AT-AT feet to be connected in various positions, and can accommodate two flying T-47s. This 358-piece base is optional and comes in a separate parts list, for builders who prefer displaying the model solely (picture 7 in the Flickr album). Parts list also include a string piece that can be easily added to reproduce the harpoon scene (picture 5 in the Flickr album). ► Instructions for the AT-AT are available at BrickVault. More pictures on my Flickr page.
  3. The EF76 Nebulon-B Frigate has to be one of my favorite ships from the original trilogy. After rewatching the beautiful ending scene in Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, I decided to take on the Midi-Scale challenge once again. This very compact model is made of 1,464 pieces and measures 48cm. With this design, I tried to maximize the density factor in the smallest, most convenient size possible. The Nebulon-B features a movie-accurate, fully asymmetrical design, from side panels to greebles and surface detail. It also includes cannons, sensors, an accurate and intricate bridge section, a streamlined water tank, and many small details seen on the original ship. Reproducing the various front assemblies, small buildings in the back and all the greebles around the engine section took lots of fine-tuning, mindful part choices, and fun gap-filling sessions to closely match the ILM prop model. The building process isn't too long nor complex: I once again went for a fully modular approach, and the reasonable part count makes it both a manageable and relatively affordable build. The EF76 comes with a wide built-in stand and can be moved around easily. It can even be grabbed and held by its long middle section which is made of a sturdy technic liftarm configuration. ► Instructions for the Nebulon-B are available at BrickVault!

  4. Hi all. I started this little project as soon as I saw pictures of the Dagobah Jedi Training set, already into the swing of sub 30cm builds I thought the little piece of wing protruding from the swamp would be an ideal starting point for an X-Wing. This modification is a combination of a small stand (in the boardered diorama style) with my Midi X-Wing, plus some swampy decoration. The swamp-stand can connect to the Dagobah set by removing one of the silver grill tiles and using the protruding studs for the connection, or the stand can also sit seperately. The Dagobah set's bit of wing can be hidden behind Yoda's hut and the hinge area conveniently disguised with a single piece of foliage. I've put together instructions and parts list for the mod and X-Wing (which can be built as a mod of 75301), they're all in a zip file here. Thanks for looking!
  5. Hello everyone, throughout the last 1,5 I updated you guys regularly in my WIP thread for my Empire Strikes Back in Lego Project. Now I am finally done with the project and I'd like to present all my 63 scenes in this new thread to you. The goal of this long lasting project was to re-create my all time favorite Star Wars movie entirely out of Lego covering all iconing scenes. The most challenging parts for sure were that I wanted to re-create everyting out of Lego so I needed to build all the backgrounds for Hoth, Dagobah and Cloud City as well. After watching the movie like for the 200x time in my life and making notes of which scenes I wanted to build I had quite a long list of 60+ scenes. As I already re-build A New Hope in LEGO in 54 scenes it was clear for me that I didn't want to pay less attention to Empire Strikes Back. Hence I took this challenge and now after 1,5 years I am really happy that I covered all 63 scenes :) I hope you enjoy my project and that you will also follow me on my journey of buidling Return of the Jedi (starting in November 2021) The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (1/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (2/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (3/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (4/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (5/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (6/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (7/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (8/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (9/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr PS: you can have a look at all parts in high quality on my FLICKR Album.

  6. I received a lot of positive feedback on my "A New Hope" skyline, so here is the next installment: "The Empire Strikes Back." I'm currently working on creating a skyline with the same dimensions for each Star Wars film - you can see "Rogue One," and "Solo" on my Instagram and Flickr pages. I also made some slight modifications to the design to make the pieces more affordable. Anyone interested can find the instructions here.

    UCS Probe Droid

    This model is heavily inspired by Icemann on Flickr. The build contains 555 pieces. All of the legs are articulated and the head rotates. Please give me feedback on the model as this is my first post and I worked very hard designing the model and the display plaque.
  8. The Cloud City playset from Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Backs…https://ideas.lego.com/projects/163944 I wanted to design a fun and playable set which would include the ionic scenes from the Empire Strikes Back film. The aim was to create a set that resembles the shape of the cloud city and offers a playable platform like the Death Star play set. I’m a keen Star Wars fan and as Cloud City hasn’t seen a new set since 2003 I thought I would have a go. I hope you enjoy and welcome your creative input into my project. Thanks for your vote…
  9. I'm finally ready to introduce a new, originally-designed speeder to you straight from the classic trilogy: --Rebel Troop Carrier-- Based on the speeder used by the Rebel Alliance at Echo Base on Hoth, this speeder isn't the most recognizable among Star Wars fans, but as a vehicle from the films, as well as being featured as a design element on the Hoth maps of Star Wars: Battlefront, it is still a valuable icon of our appreciation. To date, LEGO has only released one version of this speeder. Included as a supplement in their newest hoth set, 75098, it wasn't my favorite. To me, little-to-no detail was put into the build, as it was a very simple build and, surprisingly, much smaller than I'd previously hoped it be. Needless to say, I took it upon myself to create a much more, highly-detailed rendition of the speeder. Using namely the photos of the speeder from The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Battlefront, as well as inspiration from other LEGO customs designers, I think this speeder turned out great. The scale is perfect for this build. It includes spaces for 4 rebel troops and a driver, as well as 5 spots for easy blaster housing. The front of the model is a very sturdy assembly which houses the different lights seen on the original speeder. It's also built at an angle, just like the real thing. The most challenging aspect of this model was the rear side, as there is a LOT of detail to consider. In the end, I was able to synchronize detail and functionality/playability together, rather than have detail be the "sacrificial lamb: for functinality's sake. The center end opens up so there is more access from the rear side of the speeder for troop entrance. MOCpages Comments welcome. God bless.

    [LDD MOC] Imperial Probe Droid

    Today I have a small little build (about 40 pieces) of the Imperial Probe Droid, as seen in Episode V. Its features include a rotating head and movable arms. When I was designing this I tried to make it more screen accurate than LEGO's renditions that we've seen in years past. Comments or criticisms are welcome and encouraged!
  11. This listing is for a custom LEGO Digital Designer (LDD) model I have designed: "Darth Vader's TIE Advanced x1" Being an iconic Imperial ship from "A New Hope" and the Season 2 trailer of "Star Wars Rebels," this ship has a place in the hearts of all die-hard Vader fans. LEGO has released many renditions of this model. Specific set numbers include 4484, 7150/7152, 7262, 8017, 10131, and 10175. While all of those renditions are great, however, my design surpasses all of them in its detailing and beauty. Although the color scheme is based on the colors depicted in LEGO's #8017 rendition, the model is based closest to #75082. The cockpit interior has been heavily modified. It's blacker then LEGO's versions, and the controls are also modified as well. The rear design of the cockpit makes this model it's own. Size-wise, it's in perfect proportion to the cockpit, and it's very securely fastened to the cockpit with a combination of pins and plates. The wings are also securely fastened to the cockpit, with the same combination as the rear, along with axle pipes. Definitely the best moc by far. This ship makes the perfect addition to your Imperial fleet collection. Here are some more pictures of the ship taken from different views.
  12. This weapon is another one of my favorites from the original trilogy and Star Wars: Battlefront. I was very disappointed, though, with the design included in both 75138 and 75098. It doesn't do the original cannon justice at all. Given that, I decided to try my hand at creating one, and I think it turned out really well. http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/428616 Please let me know what you think in the comments. God bless.

    [LDD][MOC] 1.4 FD P-Tower

    This weapon is one of my favorites from the original trilogy. I'm very happy it also made it into the Battlefront game and allowed me to operate it. I was very disappointed, though, with the cannon design in 75098. It doesn't look anywhere close to the original cannon, so I set out to make one myself. I am very happy with the end result. http://www.moc-pages.../moc.php/428860 Please let me know what you think in the comments. God bless.

    AT AT MOC (or MOD?)

    After looking at the pictures of the upcoming 2014 Lego incarnation of the AT AT, I realized that it is a slightly modified version of the old 8129 set, which I unfortunately missed because of dark ages. So, in order to save me some money for my Lego purchases this summer, I decided to build my own Imperial Walker based on the frame of the 8129 set. I reinforced the connection of the front and back part of the main body, altered the proportions of the front section of the main body (which narrows down to 4 studs on the front end instead of just 2 studs wide), cleaned up the plating and re-textured it by adding smooth tiles onto studded areas to represent the escape hatches, for example. I also re-designed the hinge-based opening mechanism of the main hatches in order to better integrate the hinge pieces into the hull plating. I also closed lots of gaps. The head received all the detail it needs at this scale (and which the official versions lack), and I tried to re-create the shapes and textures, especially at the sides of the head, as accurately as I could with my parts selection. Last but not least, I basically built the legs from scratch after I saw the result I got building the legs as per the instructions. The technic joints are now embedded tightly into a snot-structure which allowed me to mirror the plating which makes up the outer and inner faces of the legs. So I figured I might call this a moc, because everything is modified and some huge and essential sections are built completely from scratch. I dunno, maybe it's still a mod - you decide.
