If there were two things I absolutely loved when I was a kid, it was Lego and Star Wars. So when I saw these incredible miniature photographs by Avanaut of the snow battle on the planet Hoth from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back using only Lego men, memories of my childhood come rushing back in a storm of fanboy nostalgia. The creator of these photographs is Finnish illustrator and designer Vesa Lehtimäki or “Avanaut”. He started making his first Lego pictures set on the snowy planet of Hoth back in 2009 and has slowly been adding more and more over the years. These pictures are even more fitting right now, what with the freezing weather we’ve been having here in the United States and with the new Star Wars movies in the pipeline.
Star Wars was possibly the greatest movie series in the history of cinema. However, with success comes parody and, thousands of parodies later, it’s getting harder and harder to find a new perspective on the movies. Enter Deviantart user DenisM79. He wanted to try his hand at flipping the classic story on its head and ummmmmm… MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. Watch as he masterfully turns Star Wars into a thrilling High School story with his spectacular illustrations:
Luke Skywalker and Leia
Hans Solo and Chewie
C3P0 and R2D2
Darth Vadar, Boba Fett, and the Trooper Twins
Jabba the Help, Grand “Math” Tarkin, and the evil Principalpitine
Professors Yoda and Kenobi
Lando Calrissian and Greedo
Professor Akbar, Nein Nunb, and Lobot
The story begins…

I would pay way too much money to see this in theaters. It’s like Back To The Future meets Star Wars meets the Breakfast Club. May the share be with you.
