A brand new Star Wars animated series is coming to TV. Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, a full-fledged show blending the humor of the Lego brand and, well, Star Wars, is set to premiere sometime this summer on Disney XD.
Okay, okay, so it's Star Wars Day. I can't think of a better way to celebrate than watching a two-minute version of the original trilogy told entirely with stop-motion Lego. Other than watching it twice.
Not only is this Lego Star Wars diorama of the ice world Hoth fun to look at, it's got some gadgety goodness inside too. Oh, and footprints. Tons of tiny minifig footprints.
While most LEGO models are smaller than the objects they resemble, this eight foot LEGO R2-D2 Technabob found stands considerably taller than the actual Star Wars droid. The model not only looks like R2-D2, but features working red and blue LEDs and authentic sound effects as shown by the video.
