Bonus photos!


The Legions of Vader put on a concert in the park.

Here is the stage in normal regular light to see. I’m actually pretty proud of it. It’s nothing magical, but I think I did a good job on the drum kit, and the speaker stacks are simple, but effective.

  1. Just brilliant, this really is a treat! I especially liked the name of their single. Looking at the crowd, most of them dressed in band member-style overalls, it seems the band already has a big following!🙂

  3. I can see a rather large number of minifigure bases… I suppose that’s one thing you’re not short of!

  5. cool pics (as always) well done!

    It was interesting to see how you did the speakers – I’d used sloping pieces reversed rather than shiny fronts in my pics. It’s cool to see how people’s minds work to get the effects they are looking for. Just – well done!

  6. You’ve outdone yourself on these. I particularly like how you posed Vader in the second shot. He’s really bringin’ down the house!

    This might be my favorite setup yet. Great build and humor combined. Way to go!

    It’s a Trap!
    The Imperial March
    There Is Another Skywalker
    Only Imperial Stormtroopers Are So Precise

    You don’t know how to fix the hyperdrive!

    • this is a pretty fantastic track listing!

      • Oh, as someone mentioned, there should be a song called May the Force be With You. You can add that to the list.

  9. I just found this site through my sister. This is one of the coolest things ever done with LEGOs in my opinion! Well done! I can’t wait to see what else you have in store.

  13. Dan, Its just Great… I agree with the other commenters.. I love the idea of using the minifigure bases as speakers and stage equipment..
