Star Wars fan Iain Heath took a giant Star Wars LEGO Super Star Destroyer, and made it even cooler when he added a giant LEGO Kraken tearing it apart! He's been taking it around and showing it off at different conventions, and it looks like it will be heading to San Diego Comic-Con this year as well which should be cool to see!
Here's some information of the Star Wars LEGO build:
The LEGO Super Star Destroyer set has a bad rap as a big dull gray set. I decided to change that...
After the death of the Emperor Palpatine and Lord Vader, the Empire made a last ditch attempt to thwart their enemies by rushing to complete their fleet of Venator class super star destroyers. However, by the time these vessels could be deployed, the Rebel Alliance had already developed its own super weapon, designation KR-KN.
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.
Here's the story behind it:
This whole build came about thanks to my crazy boss Chris Stolte who is also a LEGO fan. One day the Super Star Destroyer box just appeared on my desk :-). At first we talked about having people at work help construct it. Then we kind of forgot about it. But the product release that our company has been focused on for the past year is code-named "Kraken", so I figured it'd be fun to customize the set around that theme.
When not appearing at conventions, the model's permanent home will be the head offices of Tableau Software in Fremont, Seattle. So if you wanna see it in person, you'd better come work for us! We have crazy shit like this going on all the time.
