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.

Daily Deviation

Given 2015-06-30
The Saga Begins by Balakov is an incredibly creative and humorous still life that was perfectly executed and leaves the viewer with a giggle and a smile on their face. ( Featured by Mrs-Durden )

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?

maybe this was the storm trooper that banged is head on the death star?
Thinking about what he would be putting to paper, bangs is head and star wars is born!
This is a great shot and concept, well don and may the FARCE be with you. LOL
