This year marks 20 years since LEGO Star Wars first combined the brick with the Force, with the theme becoming one of the LEGO Group’s greatest success stories. To commemorate the occasion, five sets have been released with exclusive minifigures in special retro boxes. Each day this week, Brick Fanatics will provide instructions to build a micro version of one of the new 20th Anniversary Edition sets.
I have wanted to build a scaled down pod racer for quite some time now. While I don’t think you could class this as a ‘micro’ build, it’s certainly a lot smaller than the minifigure scale 75258 Anakin’s Podracer – 20th Anniversary Edition.
Despite the floating engines being connected by two black strings with stud ends, the whole build is actually surprisingly sturdy. This is mainly due to the trans-purple bar attached to the new 1×1 bracket – an incredibly versatile new piece for MOC builders.
I have purposely left gaps in the 2×2 round plates in order to balance the engines on the trans-clear bars used for display.
It’s also worth noting that the 1×1 bricks with studs on adjacent sides are tan, it’s not the colour I would have liked to have gone with, but presently this piece isn’t available in blue or light blue grey.
