Most Popular LEGO Models Of 2015

Here is our top ten list of fan-built Lego models, If you are sick and tired of everything Star Wars then I will suggest to ignore this list and move on to another post because unsurprisingly this list is heavily influenced by Star Wars fan-made Lego models and I’m sure for another few weeks Star Wars fever will be on the highest level of fandom. Check out the list below and do tell us which one you love the most in the comments section.

Fan spends a year building 7,500-piece Millennium Falcon from the Force Awakens

It happens to be the newest model in our Top Ten, but the Millenium Falcon from The Force Awakens built by flickr user marshal banana shot to the top of the list even faster than it could make the Kessel run. It ticks multiple boxes: it’s from Star Wars, large, immaculately detailed and has working lights to boot. It was also nicely photographed and came out just after the movie. Well played Mr. Banana, well played. Look for an interview with the builder in the new year.

Massive minifig-scale model of the Millenium Falcon interior

The number one in our list lacks a fully detailed interior, but luckily, a minifig-scaled version of that ends up taking the number two spot, so we’re all ready for our jump to hyperspace.

LEGO Death Star remake in the Friends theme

Instead of a Throne Room for the Emperor and a droid maintenance workshop, Steve Price‘s Death Star features a pet shop and a beauty salon, among other things, and it is populated by cutesy Friends Figures instead of Stormtroopers.

A full size, functional Fat Man from Fallout 4, recreated in LEGO

When I think of something called a Fat Man, it’s usually the nuclear weapon used against Nagasaki. Surprisingly, I’m not far off the mark in this case, as this particular Fat Man is a fictional gun that launches ‘mini-nukes’. I’m sure that if somebody would have built a functional nuclear weapon out of LEGO, presumably with some decidedly non-LEGO elements such as fissionable materials and chemical explosives, it would top a lot of different lists and none of them good. In this case, however, I’m relieved that functional means that it can launch projectiles.

Je Suis Charlie

Most models have made this top ten first and foremost because they are great renditions of a famous object or vehicle from a popular movie. This one is a bit different. It made the list because of the impact of the event and the subsequent discussion about freedom of expression. With the recent terror attacks in Paris still a fresh memory, the heinous attack against Charlie Hebdo may seem like half a lifetime ago, but it has been less than a year.

Blade Runner Spinner

When I built my own version of this vehicle, I found that with all the rain, smoke and fog in the movie it’s really never properly visible. Fortunately Legohaulic‘s minifig-scale version is. Great model and great presentation.

Star Wars faces of Unikitty

In another mashup of Star Wars and a theme from LEGO, everyone’s favorite character from The LEGO Movie gets dressed up as characters from Star Wars. It’s original and hilarious.

R2-D2 build

This cute little model of R2-D2 proves that if it’s Star Wars, a model doesn’t have to be large to be popular.

Crashed LEGO Star Destroyer from Star Wars Episode VII

There’s something menacing about Star Destroyers, even when crashed and partially covered in sand. This look is captured very well by the model and it has a well-deserved spot in our list.
