LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary build: 75259 Snowspeeder

Brick Fanatics continues shrinking down the new LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary Edition sets, today it’s the turn of Snowspeeder 75259 to get the micro treatment.

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.

75259 Snowspeeder – 20th Anniversary Edition

The original 7130 Snowspeeder 7130 was one of the first LEGO Star Wars sets ever released and was also one of the first Star Wars vehicles I ever attempted at micro scale. This is a slightly updated version and while I have seen more detailed micro builds out there I really love the simplicity of this design.

At micro scale 1×1 plates and modified tiles with clips connected to bars are a great way to attach wings to vehicles. Here the Snowspeeder’s wings are attached to the light grey blue antennas, which also double up as the speeder’s laser canons.

I included the gun tower as I feel it is an integral part of the full size set and it makes for a simple yet effective way to display the micro speeder.

Come back each day this week for a new LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary Edition micro build.
