Luke and Vader (Lightsaber Duel)
About this creation
There is a lot to love about the original Star Wars trilogy. For some people it it is the cool vehicles, for others the timeless story, for me, it was always about the disclosure moments in the epic lightsaber duels. Here is my take on the final duel between Vader and Luke in Return of the Jedi.

Quoting A M You've achieved such character with such a small amount of pieces--truly a masterpiece!
Thanks, it was a tough case of reworking the lines.

Quoting Tim C Superb, David. I think this may be my favorite work by you yet. Could it just be because there's a place in my heart for lightsaber duels? Maybe. I think you captured the essence of the two adversaries perfectly. In their duels, Luke was always the active one and Vader normally just stood there stiffly. The pose that you put Luke in is very dynamic. Your recent studies in this sort of build has been fun to watch and I think, as far as representing poses without hinges, this is your best work yet. Great work, sir.
Thanks Tim, this was one I really thought you'd like. I'll be interested to see what you think of my Batman MOC in this style when I post it.

Quoting Paul Vermeesch Brilliant sense of motion for the two-dimensional format. Great work!
I wanted to capture Vader's shadow, that's when he seems his most intimidating. I loved the way Luke leaps about and Vader just slashes and floats.

Luke was tough to get right.

Quoting BobaFett 2 I love this! You definitely do best with this style of build.
I think I've worked out, I approach LEGO as I do when I draw or paint, working out compositions and component arrangements. Whilst I love model making, and Classic Space in particular, this is where my niche in the LEGO community lies.

Quoting Max Pointner There is a masterful simplicity to your builds distinct from what other great builders create. Fantastic job recreating this iconic scene in your own style.
Thanks Max, I'm flattered that you added me to the category 'great builders'.

That particular blow is almost the iconic image of Return of the Jedi.

The cape was the real challenge.

Quoting Trevor Young Simple yet absolutely beautiful. A darker background could help though.
You might be right, would feel more like the film.

Quoting Justin Knelsen Thats Awesome! The posing and shaping of the figures is just perfect! I think you should start adding backrounds to these build, it would help bring them to the next level. I love it, excellent work!
Backgrounds are on my agenda.

Quoting Jared . Very cool! Always loved this scene, but I think the best one to be the fight at the end of The Empire Strikes Back.
I think Empire had more emotional charge, whereas Jedi wins on choreography.

Quoting El Barto ! Well done! Again, I wonder how a 2D background would look with this.
I did contemplate a background, I have ideas to explore here.

Quoting Gale Winthrope I agree with Joe, Luke's pose is really quite wonderful. Love the colors, as always, and the perfect shaping. You have yet again impressed me with your skills. Lovely work :)
I think the colours shine when you strip the detail back. Colour is the most important part of my paintings, and something I want to explore in lego more.

Quoting MortalSwordsman . "Impressive". Fantastic work DAS. As a martial artist (hence my name) I really appreciate Luke's stance
I always loved the way in the original trilogy Vader and Luke had such different styles of sabre fighting. Vader's knight in armour slashing seemed lost later on. That's partly what I wanted to capture.

Quoting Jon Blackford Now that's a bit good! Wondered what was going on when I saw you posted a SW MOC! If Paula sees this, expect a request for instructions ;-)
In building terms it is pretty easy to make. Grab the photo and drop the shadows and you will have template right there. Might dabbling with a bit of Doctor Who soon :)

Quoting Mihe Stonee beautiful done ;-)!
Thanks Mihe. I've been developing my figure style just so I can pull this kind of build off. My dream, cash willing, would be to scale this up to life size.
