That Time a LEGO Kraken Took Down a Star Destroyer

kraken star wars 1

Lego builders always know just what to do. Many enthusiasts knocked the Lego Super Star Destroyer set for being a boring gray blob, so Iain Heath decided to add a splash of color. He did so by building a screaming red space kraken (that would make an epic band name!) – the KR-KN – attacking the poor ship. Yes, it is awesome.

Heath conjured this legend to go with the beast:

The Legend of the KR-KN: A rare species of Space Kraken, known to exist only in the vast Dreighton Nebula, were sought out using the the Jedi’s most powerful clairvoyants, and brought under the Alliance’s control by flying super-computers directly into their brains. Many brave Ewok pilots were unwillingly sacrificed to accomplish this difficult task. Far from being cruel to the Kraken, this arrangement was completely symbiotic, as the creatures had evolved to prey on starships, their diet being composed entirely of metals such as quadanium steel.

I wonder what level of Star Wars canon that story is.

The build premiered at Emerald City Comicon and now has a permanent home at Tableau Software in Seattle.
