We all know and love the numerous Lego SW specials, but they aren’t the only ways we can see the SW universe from the perspective of tiny plastic people… there’s also the minimovies. These two-minute bits are full of that kind of sheer greatness, clever genius, and wicked funny-ness that makes Lego SW so great. So I’ve rounded up six of the moments that make me laugh ’til it hurts, and will hopefully give you a similar reaction. In no particular order, here they are!
NOTE: Contains… well, not really any big spoilers. But having seen all the movies would probably help.
SPIDERS ARE AWESOME(!!!)
Is anything more wonderfully ludicrous than the idea of a whole batch of clones with arachnophobia? I’m not sure there is… watch here
TANKS ARE A CLONE’S BEST FRIEND
I love 1137 and 1139 so much. I also love watching 1139 man the guns. The comedic timing in this short is impeccable. Watch here
WHERE RESPECT IS DUE
Ah how I adore the early days of Anakin and Ahsoka’s friendship… she so snippy, he so… skyguy-y! Yeah let’s not go pointing
fingers claw hands, Anakin… you weren’t much better! Watch here
KEEPING ‘EM OCCUPIED
Completely not what Obi-Wan meant, but whatever. Yeah that whole hand-losing thing has been a pattern, hasn’t it? Watch here
1139 and his tauntaun. SO STINKIN’ CUTE. Watch here
A FATHER’S LOVE
This one tickles my funny bone and hits all the feels. That cute little drawing Luke did says it all… someone get Darth Vader a “world’s best dad” mug STAT! Watch here
So there you go! A nice little sampling of the awesomeness that is the Lego SW shorts! Now hopefully next week’s blog will have a little more meat on its bones. Until then…
Keep The Peace,
