Star Wars Story - In Lego!

Do You Love Star Wars And Lego?

My Kids, like many others, love Star Wars and they also love Lego.

Together, we've re-created the story of the entire Star Wars Saga, for your enjoyment.

Along the way we'll have a little tongue-in-cheek fun, at the movies' expense.

Warning: if you haven't seen the movies yet (and if not, where have you been?) then you may want to skip some of the descriptions below, as they may contain spoilers.

All photos are by me on my iPod, which is why some of them are a bit grainy (note to self: I really, really must use a proper camera next time!)

Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope

Lego Star Wars: A New Hope

The Original (and best?) Star Wars movie in which the Evil Wizard keeps the Beautiful Princess locked up in his tower.

That is, until the heroes (what, you mean there's more than one of them?) rescue her and run away...

...but not before their mentor is chopped in half by the evil wizard.

They then come back to blow up the tower with large amounts of high explosives.

Like any true fairy tale, the only important question is "which one will she marry?"

Lego Star Wars Sets On Amazon

According to my son:

"Lego Star Wars is an epic gift to give your child. It's really, really epic because it's so epic!"

So there you have it!

Here are some examples from Amazon.

LEGO Star Wars Anakin Skywalker Dark Brown Belt Clone Wars (7957)

The cool dude himself - lean, mean and even meaner in lego!

The thing about clone troopers is that they are just so cool!

...even though they do eventually turn bad...

...oops sorry, was that a spoiler?

 

Lego Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

In which the evil wizard Darth Vader, searches restlessly for our hero, Luke Skywalker.

Luke on the other hand, is too busy getting bashed up by furry monsters, meeting old (but dead) friends, or trying to find small green puppets in swamps, to care about that.

The Empire closes in on the Rebels, just in time to turn our other hero, Han Solo, into an ice lolly.

Luke turns up late to the party and gets a good old father-to-son telling off for blowing up his nice tower.

Not surprisingly, Luke runs away.

The question still remains: "Which one will she marry?"

When you are wandering through the desert there's only one way to get round in style!

 

Lego Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi

In which Han the ice lolly is thawed out by his princess, but still nearly ends up in the mouth of a big monster.

Luke turns up late to the party and manages to rescue them all, with a little help from his friends and his training, courtesy of his small green puppet friend.

Luke talks to the small green puppet again and finds out that the princess is his sister, thus answering that question once and for all.

It then turns out that the evil wizard Darth Vader also has an Evil Uncle, in the shape of the Emperor, that makes Vader look like a strange man in a black costume.

The Evil Uncle has an even bigger tower than the first (Episode 4) tower and wants Luke to become his nephew instead of Vader.

Naturally, Luke doesn't like the sound of that so the Emperor gives him a going away present: several thousand volts of electricity.

Vader decides he's finally had enough of the old man and throws him off the tower...

...just before the Rebels blow it up with an even bigger load of high explosives.

Lego Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

In which we rewind back in time to a galaxy far, far away, just a little bit longer ago.

A time when Darth Vader was just a boy called Anakin.

A time when Jedi were real Jedi and... CGI was real CGI.

However, this was a time when the Evil Uncle (remember him) was still young and had bad plans for everyone.

Instead of a princess, there is a queen to rescue, and a large rubber doll called Jar Jar, to get them into trouble again.

After some racing about in unfeasible vehicles in order to buy space ship parts, our heroes escape only to meet a very nasty looking bad guy with an even nastier looking sword.

The bad guy takes one look at our heroes and his legs suddenly decide to part ways with the rest of his body, so that's the end of that.

Despite the best attempts of Star Wars fans to assassinate Jar Jar, he survives to the next episode, as do our heroes, well most of them anyway...

Lego Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones

In which Uncle Evil's plans start to come to the fore, along with his new side kick.

The Jedi of the Republic chase around a bounty hunter who is trying to assassinate the Queen (now a Senator).

They catch up with him but are surprised to find a large, friendly army of identical twins.

Meanwhile, Anakin has become a spotty teenager and is more concerned about venting his energies on fast cars (and fast Senators), than about doing any real work.

In dress sense, he's definitely a Goth, but he acts like an Emo.

He rescues his mother from some bad guys, but in the process takes his first steps towards being a fully paid up member of Uncle Evil's Evil Club.

This leaves his old friend and mentor to find out what's actually going on.

He duly does so, gets captured; Anakin and the senator come to rescue him, get captured; then they all have a big battle.

A small green blob of CGI turns up, goes absolutely bananas and the good guys escape with the help of thousands of the aforementioned identical twins.

Hooray!

Lego Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith

In which Uncle Evil's plans come to completion and he becomes Emperor.

Boo!

All his side kicks get the chop but he doesn't care because he has all the cool gadgets now.

Lots of bad things happen but Uncle Evil has made friends with Anakin.

Uncle Evil uses the pretense of helping his sweetheart to persuade Anakin to help him in his dastardly plan.

When Anakin finds out what he's doing, he reports it immediately to the Jedi, who set out to arrest Uncle Evil, but then he makes the mistake of turning up to the meeting.

Anakin signs up to Uncle Evil's Evil Club, changes his name, and it all goes downhill after that.

The senator has two little babies, and a small green blob of CGI goes into hiding ready to watch the "old" films all over again. Sob.

Lego Star Wars: The Clone Wars

But wait!

You don't have to sit there sobbing like that.

We can rewind time once more and go back to when Jedi were real Jedi, Anakin was still a hero, and Disney was just a glint in George Lucas' eye.

Hooray again!

Are You Tired Of Building Bricks?

If you're fed up, and tired of brick building, then you can always add a tour of a virtual brick world instead.

Here are some example Lego Star Wars video games on Amazon.

LEGO STAR WARS III: THE CLONE WARS 360 (XBOX 360)
LEGO STAR WARS III: THE CLONE WARS 360 (XBOX 360)

In this one you get all the usual Lego goodness, but also get to fight in big battles on land and in space!

      Brilliant! Possibly the funniest thing I've read in ages. Also the best way of summing up all of the plots.

      Now, if you could persuade George Lucas/Disney to remake to 3 'prequels' without Jar-jar Binks and make Anakin a teenager from the off, my life would be complete! It's just so wrong having Natalie Portman fall in love with a child. Ugh!

      As for Lego - when I was a child we didn't have so many 'ready made' kits so I used my brother's Lego to make VERY tall towers. Much to his annoyance. :-)
