Oh boy still no excitement coming out of this current bunch of Ideas with the fourth Idea based on the iconic scene from Star Wars when Luke finds out Darth Vader is his father. While this sounds like a good concept I have to say straight off the bat this Idea has some major issues! Summary below:
- Based on a current License (Star Wars) – moving forward LEGO Ideas has changed the rules to exclude existing licenses.
- Digital render – I’m always dubious of software designs that haven’t been built to test and shake down the design.
- Quick glance doesn’t look very stable. Considering LEGO’s primary target is aimed at kids, playability will likely be an issue.
While I do really appreciate the builders design and technique this set does really belong on social media and I can’t wait for LEGO IDEAS to slowly weed out these legacy designs. I know I sound like a grumpy old man, I’m just a little fed up with these designs getting air time to the detriment of other unique designs such as “Pop -Up Book” by JKBrickworks.
Anyway the project titled “I Am Your Father” was the brainchild of “szabomate90” who created the famous scene utilising 1,482 elements.
“I Am Your Father” joins “NF-15B Research Aircraft”, “The wonders of Peru” and “Gilmore Girls” and is the fourth LEGO Idea to make the second 2017 review panel. If you want to know what Ideas made the first 2017 review panel refer to my last LEGO Ideas blog (last paragraph) for the list.
