Shannon Ocean spends a lot of time waging his Battle for the Moon, but that’s no moon. The new Death Star planet part is are turning out to be very popular with builders and it keeps turning up in great MOCs like Rogue Bantha’s Triport Spire. Shannon’s Trade Federation homing spider droid uses the part to capture the spherical shape of the droid’s body and does it in near perfect scale.

Chris (Powerpig) McVeigh has followed up his immensely popular Death Star ornament from last year with the iconic Millenium Falcon. You can head over to his website here to check out parts lists and instructions for all of his LEGO ornaments. Chris has been very generous with his holiday creations and really seems to get into the spirit when the season of sharing arrives, so drop by and show him some nerd love.
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.
Another addition to the FBTB: flickr Outpost pool is this creation by Ben Avery (SORHP). Meant to be a hanging piece of wall art, the description reads “A piece of the Death Star, once thought obliterated is happened upon by the Tantive IV”. Not sure how the rebels got back the Tantive IV after it was captured. I would have thought it was sent to the impound yard. Despite that, it’s quite a compelling piece. What do you think? Art or not? Sound off in the forum thread
