Star Wars LEGO Mosaics: The Real LEGO Star Wars

by Paul Strauss

Technabob readers love LEGO and they also love Star Wars. So whenever the two worlds intersect, it’s geeky bliss. I’m especially impressed with these handmade LEGO Star Wars mosaics by UK artist Douglas Bagnall.

Each of his LEGO mosaics is made using thousands of individual 1×1 pixel blocks to create the image. The R2-D2 mosaic measures 30″x40″ and the stormtrooper is 30″x30″. Based on the 5/16″ square size of a single LEGO brick, that means that R2-D2 was made out of 12,288 bricks, and the stormtrooper was made from 9,216 bricks. Holy crap, that’s a lot of LEGO  – assuming my math is correct.

They’re certainly not inexpensive, with R2-D2 selling for £1,840.00 (~$3019 USD) and the stormtrooper going for £1,380.00 (~$2265 USD.) But when you think of all the work that went into making them, it softens the blow a little bit.
