Brick Fanatics is challenging talented builders to demonstrate what can be done with just 60 LEGO pieces. This 60 brick build captures the Millennium Falcon’s close call in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
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 – Space Slug escape
I think this might be my favourite build I have done in this series, I just love how smart it looks on display.
The slug itself was made with a mixture of slopes and inverted slopes to create the cut out cavern look. Then I used my all time favourite part (a round 1×1 with hole) to attach the white tooth and cow horn parts for the slug’s teeth. I did initially use the 1×2 tooth part but it just didn’t look quite as effective.
When it comes to the Millennium Falcon itself, it is pretty detailed considering its only built on a 2×2 round plate. It does use an illegal build technique on the bottom, an angled 1×1 plate, to keep the two 1×1 round plates in place (the trans-blue at the back and the light bluish grey at the side). Have a look at the shot from behind the build and you will see what I mean.
