This Star Wars Lego Set Let’s You Relive Vader’s Greatest Moment

Games News Star Wars

Once upon a time, LEGO’s were a simple kind of fun where the greatest thing you did was make weird Tetris-like shapes. Now, we use them to artfully recreate some of our favorite places, people and things.

That includes one cheeky Star Wars fan who submitted a proposal to LEGO Ideas that calls on 1,482 colorful plastic bricks to recreate one of the franchise’s most iconic moments. User szabomate90 has laid out their plans for the “I Am Your Father” LEGO set that would allow you to build the Cloud City lightsaber duel from The Empire Strikes Back.

If you couldn’t guess from the project title, the set creates the original trilogy scene where Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader battle it out, and Vader reveals he’s Luke’s father.

Although the concept of rebuilding this most dramatic of scenes is slightly funny (because why would you want to relive someone getting their hand chopped off?), it also feels like a natural fit for the Star Wars LEGO universe, which already released a larger Cloud City set back in 2003.

As of now, the project has more than 2,000 supporters. You can check out a video for the project below.
