Opee Sea Killer Debuts at LEGOLAND CA

Postby Staff » Thu Mar 22, 2012 9:37 am





Rob Hendrix over at Lifelites LLC had a busy February. He lent his expertise in modifying some of the new models slated to be unveiled at the expanded Star Wars Miniland at LEGOLAND CA on March 29th, one of which is featured in the video above: Opee Sea Killer. From Rob:


Opee sea killer has a custom made lighting controller inside for the fish's eyes and the connected Gungan sub. There are 4 LEDs in each fish eye and a total of 28 LEDs in the sub. 8 of the lights flash in a rotating pattern for the propulsion engine effect.


Sounds awesome and this is probably one of the few times I'll ever wish for inclement weather in Socal. I want to be able to see all the lighting effects in this model and the other one he worked on. There are a few other surprises in store for the revamped area of the park. And it's no coincidence that Star War Days was bumped up from it's normal summertime time slot to occur during opening weekend. Marketing wins again. But hopefully that won't stop you from attending. The Fan Gallery is going to be killer. Don, Ryan, and I will be in attendance all weekend so come on out and introduce yourself.

Now I'm thinking they should have done it in Miniland scale with Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon & Jar-Jar clearly visible in the cabin of the sub. Still cool as all get out

I was lucky to see this during the Legoland Star Wars Days 2012 and was quite impressed with the great lighting in the caves under water. All the display was missing was the Gungan city so we can throw things at Jar Jar.
