Lego Star Wars Fan site From Bricks to Bothans recently held a contest that tasked users with picking vehicles and starships from the Star Wars universe and re-imagining them as Steampunk Lego creations - and the results were pretty goddamn magnificent.

Like the grand winner of the contest above, the Steampunk Millennium Falcon by Markus1984, the models are all beautifully textured and very detailed, and marry the concepts of Iconic Star Wars imagery and the Steampunk aesthetic really well. There's something about seeing AT-ATs, T-16's and TIE Bombers covered in spokes and gears that's really rather wonderful.


Here's some of the coolest contest entries:

Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi Starfighter and Hyperdrive Ring, by Legols


Steampunk TIE Bomber, by Markus1984

The All Terrain Aristocratic Traveler, by Moriartus


Steampunk Skyhopper by Markus1984

Steam Snowspeeder by Sculptron
