How to turn a ‘Star Wars’ prop into a Lego toy, according to artist
When it comes to Lego sets, the iconic green droid that first appeared in 1977’s Star Wars is a prime candidate for being used as a Lego model.
A recent project by artist David Wills uses it to create an intricate 3D model of the droid, as detailed in a new article in the Journal of Art & Design.
Wills created a 3D print of the new, 3D-printed model of Chewbacca, one of the few remaining Jedi and the most famous droid in the movie universe.
It’s a striking rendering of the iconic character’s figure and his iconic helmet.
“The first time I saw this character was in the original ‘Star Trek’ series, where he’s on the Enterprise, and I saw him as a child, and the idea that he’s been around forever, and that he still has the same look and the same feel and the very same personality,” Wills told ABC News.
“So, when I saw the concept of a 3-D print, I thought, ‘Wow, this is pretty cool.
“I think it’s kind of a cool piece of history,” he said. “
Wamps original 3D printer printed the original Chewbackeys head. “
