Awesome. And sadly a lot more fun than the actual game was.

Very cool. Although why didn't the minifigs break apart when sliced? And the pacing was...weird.

Very well done stop-motion. Good camera work, too. A lot of amateur LEGO animations end up blurry because the animator doesn't have the right camera for the job.

I was hoping this would be about a new Lego Star Wars game. I was disappointed.

The fact that everyone's not all "Wow that was amazing!" makes me think I've missed some incredible something-or-other.

Better acting and direction than the prequels.

Great technique (better than *me*, that's for certain), but it needs some humour or quirkiness to really work.

My smile grew incredibly wide when the green lightsabre was turned on.

Where were those guys when I spent hours abrading my prepubescent hands trying to find a red 1x4 when I was swimming in 1x8s?

Cinematic, baby.

(ODiv, the focus on that scene, Genuis!)

Great stuff. I've done animation and I know how freaking hard this is to do well. Thanks for the post.

Awesome.

Everyone knows Stormtroopers shoot red lasers

And THAT is what Anakin hunting down all the Jedis SHOULD have looked like!

Now you got me annoyed all over again at how much potential the Star Wars franchise had before it got pissed down the drain.

Lego has advanced so far since I was a kid. We used to make cannons that fired axles at nearly supersonic velocity when we needed to kill some Lego men1. The only non-Lego part permitted was a rubber band. And now they have light sabers!

The only thing that bothers me is that some of them are not smiling. Do they not know Lego men are always meant to smile, even after being torn in half2 by a ballistic plastic brick?

1: We didn't know they were called "minifigs" at the time.
2: Reversibly, of course.
