Master Builders Tyler and Sean are back with another series of LEGO MOCs inspired by the recent release of Star Wars The Last Jedi. These LEGO Star Wars character busts are based on a stylized, cartoony versions of Luke Skywalker (based on old man Luke from TLJ), Yoda, Darth Maul and a First Order Stormtrooper. I simply couldn’t overemphasize the degree of complexity and advanced building techniques that went through the creation of these character busts. As Tyler noted, these builds may look simple on the outside, but the building magic really happens on the inside.
Particularly, I like the way how Luke and Yoda’s gray hair were conveyed using light and dark gray slope pieces. The way their eyes were recreated, and the angle of their eyebrows gives these character busts a certain degree of personality of their own. The use of lime green color for Yoda was really spot on.
Darth Maul is really in a class of his own. As my favorite Sith Lord from the Star Wars prequels, I certainly won’t mind giving him some space in my LEGO Star Wars collection. The red and black color scheme really fits his character, not to mention Tyler and Sean excellent use of those white tooth pieces to replicate his iconic horns. This is one Sith character bust that you definitely don’t want to mess with.
Finally, we have what I feel is the epitome of Tyler and Sean’s brick-building skills. This LEGO Star Wars MOC First Order Stormtrooper bust clearly showcases the depth of the their building skills. The helmet design, and the way the LEGO pieces are aligned in such a way to give the bust a smooth, and sleek appearance is really awesome. Admittedly, this is the toughest model that Sean and Tyler ever made in this series.
