Custom LEGO BrickHeadz - Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker

Finally we have Luke Skywalker as a Jedi Knight joining the custom Darth Vader redeemed I made previously. Special thanks to young Han Solo for the printed shirt brick. The rest of the build is pretty standard and boring black, but that's just how it was in the movie really. The Headz portion has been directly transplanted from the Luke & Yoda set. This is Luke in my absolute favorite form and needed to be in my collection!

Custom LEGO BrickHeadz - Darth Vader Redeemed

Sometimes seeing a single part can inspire an idea and create an opportunity for something custom. This build was inspired by the 4x2 white printed tile from the Captain Armando Salazar set. The main custom portion of this BrickHeadz is the... Headz portion. Using 2 of the previously mentioned tiles to make up the large scar tissue on Vader's bald head. Additionally I've used a wheel axle plate to represent the severed right hand since this takes place after the throne room climax.

Custom LEGO BrickHeadz - Original Trilogy Han Solo

A nice wave of Star Wars Original Trilogy BrickHeadz are being released later this year. But missing among them is an 'adult' Han Solo set. We already got the Young Han Solo model earlier in 2018, but I definitely needed one (or two) to go with the original cast. Having the head and hair already designed and readily available made the extras easy to design. The 1x2 white printed brick from the Jack Sparrow set made for an excellent, ready made, Han Solo shirt.
