LEGO Star Wars: Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy

The official Star Wars website has given everyone a closer look into Vesa Lehtimäki’s newest book by DK Publishing, LEGO Star Wars: Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy. I’ve talked about it a little bit before but we now get to see some preview pages and what we can expect from the book. You can now pre-order the book on Amazon and it will be released on November 10th.

LEGO® Star Wars® sets and minifigures come to life in this beautiful photography book.

Created by Finnish photographer Vesa Lehtimäki using his son’s favorite toys, the book features painstaking recreations of classic movie moments and hilarious new takes on fan-favorite characters and themes. Informative captions give technical details for each scene, while anecdotes from Lehtimäki offer background insights to his creative process.

LEGO Star Wars Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy is a breathtaking new look at a timeless icon that allows fans to see their favorite minifigures from the classic saga in an exciting new way.

Upcoming LEGO Star Wars Hoth Echo Base Confirmed?

LEGO Star Wars Hoth Echo Base

To further speculate that LEGO will be releasing a new LEGO Star Wars Hoth Echo Base set in a few months, there’s a listing in Brickset’s database that may have just confirmed the set. There’s a direct-2-consumer set listed with set number 75098 which has a recommended retail price of $249.99. The dimensions of the box are also listed at 22.9 x 18.9 x 3.6 inches which is the same size as the Ewok Village (10236). That set had 1990 pieces so I’m thinking that the Hoth Echo Base will have around the same number of pieces.

If you haven’t watched the LEGO Star Wars mini movie that could be a teaser for the set, you can check it out over on the minisite. Thanks to Joseph for the heads up.

Rumors of LEGO Star Wars Heading to LEGO Dimensions in 2016/2017

Back in June, there was a statement by Disney vice president of production John Vignocchi during E3 about if fans would ever be seeing Star Wars coming to LEGO Dimensions and his answer was pretty much no. However today over on Eurobricks, Sir von Lego, who has been known to have insider information, has reported say that they have heard about LEGO Dimensions Star Wars expansion packs coming in late 2016/early 2017.

If you’ve been following anything Star Wars gaming-related, you would know that Disney will be releasing Star Wars characters as part of their Infinity 3.0 line which was announced back in May. Currently, there will be at least two waves of Star Wars Infinity 3.0 characters released this year but no word on any future expansions beyond that at this time.

Could LEGO and Disney have an agreement in place for Star Wars to come to LEGO Dimensions after 2015? Possibly, considering that the LEGO Star Wars license will be running until at least 2022 and there has been high interest from fans for LEGO Dimensions even before its release. Also keep in mind that Sir von Lego has been true to their word the past few years regarding rumors of future LEGO products so it’s pretty hard going against their word. If this rumor is true, we might hear something official at E3 or San Diego Comic Con in 2016 so stay tuned.

LEGO Star Wars Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy by Vesa Lehtimäki (Avanaut)

LEGO Star Wars Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy

Back in March, I reported on a few upcoming LEGO DK books that will be released late this year. One of these books by Finnish LEGO photographer Vesa Lehtimäki, aka Avanaut, was tentatively called LEGO Star Wars: Through a Lens but the finalized title of the book is called LEGO Star Wars: Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy. It’ll retail for $24.99 and has 176 pages and will be released on November 10.

If you’re into LEGO photography, you’ve probably heard of Avanaut’s work as it has also been used in the LEGO The Hobbit set promotions. I think LEGO Star Wars Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy will make a very nice coffee table book as it can show off what a person with a camera and LEGO can do with some imagination. Obviously, Avanaut is just a one person in the popular LEGO photography community and this book may be a stepping stone to introduce more people into the hobby.

LEGO Star Wars SDCC 2015 Dagobah Mini-Build Building Instructions

LEGO Star Wars SDCC 2015 Dagobah Mini-Build

You guys wanted it and here it is. On the third day of San Diego Comic Con 2015, LEGO had on sale for ticketed attendees the LEGO Star Wars Dagobah Mini-Build set. I’ve opened up the set and have provided readers with the building instructions for the set.

For this set, there are a few rare pieces like the tan satellite dish 4617765, the 2x2w bow 6055868, the dark tan jumper plate 6092591, the dark tan round plate 6038461, and the olive green 1×1 plate 6058245. Also, the gray frog has been in a few sets but it’s mostly been used in the modular sets so they could be fairly rare too. Finally, the complete R2-D2 minifigure has only been in two sets, the Jedi Interceptor (75038) and the Sandcrawler (75059).

Head over to my Flickr album to see all the building steps for the Dagobah Mini-Build in an organized fashion or you can download the PDF I’ve also provided to use at your leisure.

I hope you guys have enjoyed these building instructions for the SDCC 2015 exclusive sets. As I’ve been telling readers, I feel that these builds should be enjoyed by as much people as possible and this is a way for me to give back to the LEGO community.
