LEGO builds in 60 bricks: Star Wars droid sale

Brick Fanatics is challenging talented builders to demonstrate what can be done with just 60 LEGO pieces. In this build, a dramatic Star Wars scene is captured at a tiny scale

Brick Fanatics decided to celebrate 60 years of the LEGO brick with a challenge – put together a series of builds in which each model uses just 60 pieces. It is not easy to produce a recognisable, clever build with such a specific piece count, but Dimitri and Jme were certainly up the challenge…

Star Wars – Droid sale

For the second of my Star Wars: A New Hope builds I decided to try out a Sandcrawler at the Lars homestead. I really like incorporating sky within micro builds. I think it really helps set the scene and adds more detail into the build. Usually I’ll use a mix of different coloured plates to create a sense of depth within the sky, but with the 60 brick restriction I went for solid blue. Luckily I don’t think there are many clouds in the Tatooine sky.

I am really pleased with the Sandcrawler design, I think there’s just the right amount of texture and angles to make the build instantly recognisable. The round 2×2 dome work well for a moisture farmer’s hut and the light bluish grey telescope piece is intended to represent a moisture evaporator.

What really finishes this build off is the sloped piece at the back. It just adds that final piece of detail and helps create a sense of depth within what is a very small build.
