What They're Saying:
- “It’s been an amazing adventure creating Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder in LEGO brick form,” says Soares. “We’ve ensured no detail has been forgotten and have even included some of the scratches. It is such an iconic vehicle in the Star Wars saga.”
- Although LEGO has modeled the vehicle for other sets, this marks the first time that Luke’s landspeeder gets this higher level of detail and accuracy. “The final model is a great display piece where fans can also get the chance to have lots of fun while building it,” says Soares.
- In defining the model, Soares found the color palette evocative of the harsh desert world and the gritty used-future aesthetic seen in the film particularly appealing. “I think the color scheme is striking,” he says. “The combination of nougat and dark red alongside the chrome grill works particularly well.” And just like the prop that inspired it, the trio of engines are all unique, “so you can avoid some repetition during building and at the same time make the model a bit more visually interesting,” Soares notes. “I especially like the open cowl one with all the wires and thrusters bits exposed!”
