Adam Savage’s LEGO Han Solo Blaster!

Adam adds to his LEGO-themed armory with this replica of Han Solo’s DL-44 blaster, built entirely of LEGO bricks. We found these fan-designed kits online, and talk through the build to show some of the clever ways the pieces are assembled to resemble the parts of the iconic Star Wars blaster.

  1. Those are super cool. I noticed the kits came in Tesco bags – were they from the UK?

    The engineering that goes into Lego is astonishing – I mean, I knew it was obviously tough to get things right, but when you had Angus McLean on a while back talking about his Wall-E set, that’s when I really realised just HOW meticulous these builders get. Btw I bought the Wall-E set on Ebay after hearing him talk about it and I love it.

    But anyway… WHO WON? Who finished first? 😛

    …*psst* Trapped pube at 11:02 lol

  2. Its a beautiful bit of design! Adam mentioned only a select few can buy specific bricks, isnt brick link open to the public?

  3. yes, last I checked, which wasn’t long ago, you can go to the website and order any specific brick, in any color, in any quantity.

  4. ‘Arcy He was talking about purchasing through official channels though, right. Is Bricklink *not* essentially people who scavenge sets for parts and list all the stuff they don’t use? That was always my interpretation 🙂

  5. Really? I figured brick link was an official Lego service, its included in the digital designer program, hence my confusion

  6. LEGO has a new option for buying single bricks:

    Sadly – the old service where you could build a model in the 3D-program – and then order it (including building instruction and boxart – it was SO cool) is terminated. They had to handpick to many parts to make it a decent business….

    I think what Savage was referring to is the option to buy bricks whole sale directly from LEGO….

    And – bricklink is not connected to LEGO – and their virtual building program is a different one than LEGOs:
