Mind Games: Interview with Brandon Griffith

QO5C5717

Even if you don’t know who Brandon Griffith is you are probably well aware of his work, especially since we just posted his Return of the Jedi chess set last night. As icgetaway he’s created the extremely well recieved Star Wars Chess Board Trilogy among many other builds and the recently successful STUDS collectible trading cards Kickstarter campaign. As a quarter of OneLug he’s participated in building what is possibly the biggest and best loved of the Lord of the Rings MOC’s to date, so who is the man in the beaver’d hat and where does he get those wonderful toys?

Brandon Griffith’s Return of the Jedi Chess Set

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi Lego Chess

You should recognize Brandon Griffith‘s name. And if you don’t you should at least recognize his work. Having completed large scale chess sets based on A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back films, he’s completed the third movie-based chess set from the original trilogy, Return of the Jedi. The set debuted at LEGOLAND California’s Star Wars Days back in 2011, but he just recently had professional photographs taken of this gorgeous set. He’s poured the same attention to detail in the ROTJ set as he did the first two, and it clearly shows. His work is outstanding so please, take a few moments and enjoy the eye candy.

Tantive IV Pursued

Tantive IV

I really couldn’t think of an appropriate title for this post. The above photo was taken by flickr-user Blockaderunner. Other than a little photoshop work to remove the stands, everything else was set up and shot just the way you see it. Simply astounding.

Death Star Destroyed

Deathstar Destroyed

We’ve featured legoagogo‘s photography a time or two before, and he’s just put out another incredible composition of a subject most of us probably don’t think about too often: those poor, poor stormtroopers faithfully serving aboard the Death Star as it exploded.

The rippling tiles on the floor and the microscale spaceships in the background really make this scene for me.

There’s more amazing Lego scenes and beautiful photography, including a healthy Star Wars set. Here’s one of my favorites:
