Darth Vader's Badass Rogue One Scene Now in LEGO Form

SPOILERS in the above video and article, obviously. Go see the movie already!

People have really been enjoying the presence (one they haven't felt in a long time) of Darth Vader in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Just yesterday we posted a video turning his incredible show-stopper scene from the film into a 16-bit video game, and today we see the same scene recreated in stop-motion with LEGOs. What a world.

The latest take on Darth Vader's lightsaber and Force-filled rampage that makes up the bulk of the final scene of the movie animates it in LEGO (using some crude effects to flesh it out). The video, from "Lego Man," uses bootleg audio from the film itself, matching up directly with the fan-made shots.

The video is a beat-by-beat recreation of the scene, so it's about as spoilery as it can be, from the reflected blaster bolts to a Force choke/throw, to the stab through the door. Like the 16-Bit version, the scene ends with Vader watching the Tantive IV fly away, and does not include the scene between Captain Antilles and Princess Leia that closes the actual film.

Lego Man has also LEGO-ized the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer and done his own takes on two other Rogue One inspired videos.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is in theaters now. Directed by Gareth Edwards, it's the first of the new standalone features from Lucasfilm and Disney, which take place outside the core "Skywalker Saga" of films noted by an Episode number. Rogue One tells the story of the small band of rebels that were tasked with stealing the plans to the first Death Star. The story spins directly off the opening crawl from the original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. In that crawl, it read: "Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet."
