LEGO Star Wars working Podrace arcade game

Two LEGO fans have built an incredible working Star Wars Podrace arcade machine using Mindstorms, inspired by a 1999 video game.

Alexis Dos Santos and Lbaixinho have been working for two years on an incredible working LEGO Star Wars build, and now it is getting some time in the online limelight. Rebelscum draws our attention to this brilliant arcade machine, inspired by the classic Star Wars Episode I: Racer video game.

Much like classic arcade machines, the player uses the joystick to help the podracer dodge the obstacles coming towards it. The machine uses four motors, a touch sensor and 6,000 LEGO elements.

Solo: A Star Wars Story will be released on May 25. The LEGO Star Wars sets based on the film will launch on April 20.

The current range of LEGO Star Wars sets are available at, with double points for Star Wars VIP card holders during February.
