Startup: Escher in Sci-Fi, What’s Not To Love?

Star Wars Escher in Lego is cool all by itself, but this diorama encapsulates the original trilogy at the same time. Starting in the top-left you have the sands of Tatooine, to the right is the grey platforms of the Death Star, below is the gloom of Jaba’s Palace, to the left of that is the white ice of the rebel base on Hoth, and in the center is the Emperor’s personal ante-chamber and viewing deck.

This 1x1x1 foot model is the result of six months effort by builder Paul Vermeesch who has also done (among other things) a lovely Angry Birds diorama – in Lego of course.

    I saw this a couple weeks ago and had initially intended to email it to the tips address, but thought it would be more appropriate to use the Force. I see it worked. Hooray!

  • It's been awhile since I had 6 months of spare time to play with Legos. Kudos to you, young fellow!
