How do you pay proper homage to some of the smallest heroes of the Star Wars galaxy—a group who played a huge role in defeating the Empire? You build them a shrine, that’s how. Specifically, one in the form of a massive LEGO Ewok village.
This detailed recreation of the furry little warriors’ dwelling stands over three feet tall and was built by KW Vauban. The engineer in question also took the time to recreate some of the most memorable scenes from Return of the Jedi that took place right there on the forest moon of Endor.
Vauban posted tons of photos you can spend ages studying, but some of our favorites include: The Ewoks carrying C-3PO around like the god they believed him to be, Han and Leia celebrating the defeat of the Emperor, and a merry appearance from Admiral Ackbar.
However, the best has to be the LEGO recreation of Luke burning Darth Vader’s body on a pyre. If you look closely it kind of looks like Luke is smiling…but we’ll just imagine he’s trading grins with LEGO Force ghosts that we can’t see. (Preferably the LEGO Force ghost of old Anakin Skywalker, not Hayden Christensen.)
We have more images in our gallery below, but head over to Vauban’s page to see all of them. Even if you’re not a big fan of the Ewoks, you’ll likely find this creation really cool.
