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.

SDCC Wrap Up – LEGO’s Giant Mural

SDCC LEGO Mural - 9

In what seems to be a convention tradition now, LEGO had a giant mural that booth visitors can help build. Since each day of the con had a certain theme, the 30′x7.5′ wall was divided into four even sections with each section dedicated to a day’s theme. The baseplates comprising the wall had a numbered grid printed on top corresponding to 6×6 stud plates. The 8×8 plates were also printed with colors where the matching 1×1 bricks are supposed to go. Once the 6×6 plate is complete, it is then hammered onto the wall.
