Amazing Star Wars MiniaturesPosted: January 24, 2010
Two things caught my eye this week. Is it a coincidence they were both Star Wars related? I think not. First up, a simply staggering [recreation of Echo Base in LEGO](http://www.flickr.com/photos/23575410@N05/).
The complex required well over 20,000 lego tiles and 160 lights. It is over 6’x12′ and takes up an entire garage. Mark Borlase, you have my infinite admiration.
Next up, [a site devoted to recreating shots from the original trilogy using the original old-school figures](http://ratherchildish.wordpress.com/).
As someone who still has a few figures from the original trilogy lying around somewhere, I have to admire the artistry in the photography, the excellent use of depth of field and lighting, not to mention making cheap-o figures look like a million bucks.
