X-Wing & Naboo Starfighter by eldeeem

At the bend of the flickr gallery ofeldeeem, I came across these two reproductions of starships from the Star Wars universe: An X-Wing and a Naboo Starfighter, which LEGO has already interpreted in official sets on multiple occasions.

My first reaction was to find these two models relatively simple in design and poor in parts. But by reading the MOCeur commentary, I understood the philosophy of these two versions "and, too": Limiting the budget allocated to them was one of the parameters to be taken into account in the realization of these two ships.

And the end result is therefore a compromise, a kind of better quality / price ratio which is also a delicate challenge to take up, as the LEGO designers do at their level for the design of sets intended to be marketed in a specific price bracket. .

Knowing that the budget was taken into account, I therefore looked at these two ships with a different eye while keeping in mind that their apparent simplicity is in fact the result of a reflection integrating the financial dimension.

All this to say that money sometimes limits possibilities, but not creativity.

Obi-Wan Kenobi by Omar Ovalle

Another bust ofOmar Ovalle which announces the near end of this series of creations in favor of a new promising series centered on the weapons of the Star Wars universe: Here is Obi-Wan Kenobi accompanied by his Jedi Starfighter probably inspired by hasbro model.

We can discuss the color of the hair and the beard, Ewan McGregor being in my opinion rather brown in style. Reddish brown, but the cut is overall very well rendered and the character is immediately recognizable.

OB1 KnoB LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar

In the middle of all the photos posted on flickr of the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar Day box - a Clone Trooper - there is one that made me smile: The one above uploaded by OB1 Knob.

With all his creativity, and despite the limits imposed by the sometimes a little starving content of certain boxes, he tries to offer an alternative to the pathetic - let's not be afraid of the words - mini-models offered by LEGO.

And with theAcclamator-Class Republic Assault Ship yesterday (we suppose it is this ship that it is), he manages to make us a speeder of the most beautiful effect which, if one asks me my opinion, would well worth a job to him at LEGO for take care of the content design for the next LEGO Star Wars 2014 calendar.

More seriously, how I welcome Antoine's initiative "Brickfan"who expresses daily his impressions on the content of the calendar in video, I also welcome the will ofOB1 Knob to come up with something different.

Spin on his flickr gallery, other cases have passed through his hands, and I can't wait to see the rest ...

Sarlacc Pit by Markus1984

A LEGO Star Wars MOC so as not to lose sight of the general theme of the place, with this diorama by Markus1984.

Un Sarlacc Pit, it's always good to take, especially with this type of "luxurious" staging: A Sail Barge very detailed that looks like the one in the movie (especially next to the one in the set 75020 released this summer), very well materialized dunes with an offset just enough to create a subtle effect of "waves", two Desert Skiffs with perfect curves and a sarlacc whose dentition does not present any defect. It is superb.

Many other photos of this diorama can be found on the flickr gallery by Markus1984.
