I automatically like anyone who looks at M.C. Escher’s “Relativity” and decides it should be made into three dimensional art with Lego bricks. Even cooler, the Lego bricks are Star Wars themed. Yeah, builder Paul Vermeesch is the coolest.
There’s more than meets the eye to this model, too. If you look closely you’ll see that Vermeesch has arranged the story of the original trilogy in a counterclockwise fashion. You can go from movie to movie so be sure to look at the photos below to see all the details in each scene. The model even includes a minifig scale theater in the back that actually plays a loop of scenes from the Lego Star Wars video games with an iPod Touch serving as the screen. Brilliant.
See some up close photos of the re-creation after the break.
