The Saga Begins by Balakov The Saga Begins by Balakov
It was a lovely sunny day outside, so I stayed indoors and took photos of LEGO Stormtroopers. As you do.

Just. Wow. This is astonishing. O.K. then, let's start with the idea. It's a brilliant conceit, I just love the idea of a Stormtrooper being a writer, slaving away on the first script to Star Wars! Then there is the lego-work. Everything has been put together simply but perfectly, so that the image is easily readable without being cluttered. The angle the picture has been taken at does the same thing and it is a high quality camera, too, which makes a big difference! All told, this is an absolutely delightful picture with superlative production values from beginning to end.
What do you think?

this is one of the strangest things i have ever seen but like somehow it is ultimately perfect and complete. any additions to this piece would be too much and any subtractions from it would ruin it. the perfect picture.

If he wrote Star Wars, why didn't he give all the stormtroopers better aiming ability? Unless he was writing a commentary on the poor training they get...
