The Rebel Fleet. A Lego Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back MOC.

mortesv lego star wars rebel fleet moc 01

“But the glow of the stars is just a faint glimmer compared to the magnificence of the kickass Rebel Fleet just outside!”

The Rebels in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back are a ragtag group of resistance fighters. They have desperately put together a fleet of starships and starfighters as they prepare to assault the Empire. This fleet is one of the most iconic scenes from Empire Strikes Back, and a lot of kids who saw it in theaters wanted to create their own in Lego. For many years this proved challenging; but now with a lot of time, artistic inspiration, and a lot of money, you too can create your own Lego Star Wars Fleet.

Mortesv, the self-styled Admiral of the Rebel Fleet, has spent a good chunk of time recreating the fleet in Lego. The whole project is mostly in scale. The stars of the show are huge Lego MOCs of the Redemption and Tantive IV. If you look carefully you can even find a few unwelcome guests among the fleet.

There are 52 ships represented here. 15 X-Wings, 16 Y-Wings, 6 B-Wings, 5 A-Wings, 3 GR-75 Medium Transports, 2 TIE Fighters, 1 Corellian Corvette (Tantive IV), 1 Nebulon-B Escort Frigate (The Redemption), 1 Firespray-class interceptor (Slave 1),  1 Lambda-class T-4a Shuttle (Tyderium), and 1 Millennium Falcon.

A whole system of clear support structures and connectors keep the Rebel Fleet afloat. This helps keep the focus on the ships themselves. With all the detail and greebling the last thing you want to do is hide anything behind ugly structures.

The Slave I, A Massive New Lego Star Wars Ship Revealed (75060)

Lego Star Wars Slave I, 75060 Box

Recently at BrickCon, Lego revealed its newest entry into the Lego Star Wars Ultimate Collectors Series (UCS) will be the iconic Slave I (75060). This new set will feature 1,996 pieces and will retail for around $199.99. This is the set that almost every Star Wars fan has always wanted. It will include a Boba Fett, Han Solo (and Carbonite version), Bespin guard, and Stormtooper Minifigures.

Best of all the scale of this ship feels right, the set doesn’t feel too large or too small. It is officially in the Minifigure scale. The photos can be a little misleading, but this is a huge spaceship. Easily the size of a small dog, or baby.

The Slave I is a modded Firespray-31 class attack craft, famously used by Boba Fett, and Jango Fett. The design of the model is a good compromise of the SNOT style and more typical Lego style. Most of the exposed studs act as a sort of texture, giving the Slave I a well used appearance. This is certainly not a brand new star fighter.

Lego designed the model to work in both configurations, the vertical and horizontal positions. The wings and cockpit can both rotate to fit whatever position Boba Fett is flying. Which is a really sleek feature for this set.

The version of Boba Fett is exclusive to this UCS, as is the Bespin Guard. Also included is Han Solo, a Carbonite version of Han Solo, and a standard Storm Trooper.
