While I am not the most profound Star Wars nerd you will ever meet, you will find upon getting to know me that I am particularly rabid for all things Steampunk. As such, combining the awesome starship design of Star Wars with the Victorian flare of the Steampunk subculture and the infinite building capabilities of LEGOs results in an instant winner in my book.

The above TIE Fighter was entered into a contest called “Steam Wars” in which LEGO enthusiasts were invited to redesign the ships and vehicles of Star Wars to fit into the steampunk genre– while the TIE was my favorite of the entries shown, all of the others were stunning pieces of work that you will simply have to see for yourself.
