The 75253 LEGO Star Wars BOOST Droid Commander set was unveiled in May and we expected it to be available from the 1st of September.

Yesterday the designer video was released for the set , you can hear some interesting information about the design process:

Surprisingly after the release of the video the set became available at the US LEGO Shop@Home site for $199.99! Unfortunately the rest of the world still has it listed as “coming soon”.

The corresponding app is released as well for iOS and Android, if you have the Boost hub you can give it a try and test how the droids would behave, or you can even follow the instructions and build your own scrapyard version of the droids!

Darth Vader’s Lego Technic motorcycle building instructions – 42036+42050

If you remember my Darth’s Angels photo it had 3 custom motorcycles, all of them was a combination of 42036 and 1-2 other Technic sets. As I promised I was preparing the building instructions slowly but surely (bad weather definitely helps), so here is the first one for Darth Vader’s bike:

Darth’s Angels

I’d like to share with you my biggest project so far – Darth’s Angels. I had the idea to create custom motorcycles for the Star Wars buildable figures ever since my son got his first set. As I realized the Stormtrooper fits perfectly on the 42036 Street Motorcycle, especially on the B model. That was the first step, and after a few weeks of building, refining and constructing the photo scene finally I managed to create the shot I imagined:

For this Lava shot I had to collect around ~6000 round plates and pins 🙂 I’ll share a separate post about the techniques used for the photo because it was quite a nice challenge 🙂

Three custom motorcycles were created for Darth Vader and the two Stormtroopers. I wanted to add an extra twist to the build so all of the motorcycles are using pieces only from specific sets.

Darth Vader’s bike – 42036 Street Motorcycle + 42050 Drag Racer

First Stormtrooper bike – 42036 Street Motorcycle + 42039 24 Hours Race Car

Second Stormtrooper bike – 42036 Street Motorcycle + 42045 Hydroplane Racer + 42047 Police Interceptor

A video presentation of the motorcycles:
