Star Wars Lego AT-ST Walker Destroyed
Remember the scene in Return of the Jedi where the Ewoks aimed two logs at an AT-ST Walker and obliterated it? These guys recreated that scene with a LEGO walker. They shot the destruction with a high-speed camera so we get to watch it in glorious slow motion. It took three hours and over 1,000 LEGO pieces to built it, and less than a second to wreck it.
I was just a little disappointed that it wasn’t actually in the forest of Endor, or anywhere else. But George Lucas used a green screen for much of the forest warfare, so that’s actually the most authentic way to recreate the movie scene. See the making-of video, too. (via Geeks Are Sexy)
