Awesome LEGO creation: Han Solo in Carbonite

by

Anyone who’s been to LEGOLand knows that there are some great LEGO creations out there.  For Star Wars fans, this near life sized interpretation of Han Solo frozen in carbonite by Nathan Sawaya, takes the cake.

Wanting do a Star Wars model, and also wanting to do something never been done before (to my knowledge), I decided to make Han Solo frozen in carbonite. Life size. It took about 10,000 bricks, almost all dark gray, and about three months of on and off building. I built the sculpture so it can break down easily into smaller parts, thus making it mobile. Because, like most people, I like to take large sculptures of people frozen in carbonite with me whenever I travel.
