There’s a contest going on over at the Lego site ReasonablyClever, entitled “Spooky Star Wars”. As you can imagine, it involves building a combination Star Wars/Halloween themed Lego model. Last week I got an idea for an entry and this weekend, after creating an awesome new Lego building space in the office, I went to work on it.
Behold, the Ex-Wing Fighter:
Not everyone who didn’t come back from the Battle of Yavin…didn’t come back!
Here’s the pilot, Dead Leader:
And his trusty droid, RBoo-DBoo:
And a top view showing the wings, which I’m pretty proud of:
Dead Leader now roams the galaxy, endlessly seeking revenge. Some say he’s waiting for a signal from the Rebel Base that he can come home.
More photos can be seen in the Flickr set. Thanks to everyone who gave advice on the prototypes!
UPDATE: Woo! This got featured on Fascinating Lego Model of the Day! Thanks!
