Some people have mad Lego skills. But Marshal Banana takes that to a whole new level in the video above, which shows the Jawa Sandcrawler he recently created. According to Gizmodo, it took nine months to build and is made of over 10,000 bricks.
But the most impressive elements in its creation are its automation and attention to detail. The Sandcrawler boasts a working ramp, a crane that moves, a rotating conveyor belt and more. And the interior has an array of LED lights and minifigs that make the whole thing come to life. As Vader might say.... "Impressive!"
If you love big, bold Star Wars statues then today is your lucky day. Check out this jaw dropping Darth Vader from Cinemaquette that stands at 29 inches tall and is loaded with pretty much all the bells and whistles you could ever dream of! The company is beginning to take pre-orders on the item, which has an edition size of 1,000 pieces and comes in at a retail price of $2,000. That certainly qualifies it as swagalicious in our book.
Here's the detail from the company's website:
"The Dark Lord of the Sith makes his Cinemaquette debut! The most anticipated release in the Cinemaquette series is finally available for pre-order, our breathtaking re-creation of the most iconic movie villain of all time, Darth Vader! Constructed of polyurethane composite with exquisitely detailed armor and robes as seen in The Empire Strikes Back, the Darth Vader Cinemaquette features an LED illuminated chestplate and lightsaber, and three digital voice clips featuring the authentic voice of Darth Vader! Remove Vader's helmet to reveal the likeness of Anakin Skywalker, as portrayed by Sebastian Shaw, reproduced in our trademark "silicon-skin" sculpting process. Give in to the dark side and place your order now!"Comment
Next time Twitter goes down... let's hope the folks over there forget about posting the regular "Fail Whale" and decide to go with this much cooler Star Wars version instead. According to the official Star Wars blog, this version was created by Le Kemp. I love how the one little birdie is doing its best Darth Vader impression with the the quote, "Luke, I am your father." Only problem is the quote is actually, "No, I am your father." (But we quibble!)
