Photographs Of ‘Star Wars’ and ‘LOTR’ LEGO Minifigs In Inventive Scenes

Bossk’s Cool Day Out

Illustrator and LEGO aficionado Vesa Lehtimäki, or Avanaut, combined his love for LEGO with some of his favorite films like Star Wars, Lord of The Rings, and Indiana Jones in his original photographs.

Avanaut positions LEGO minifigs in carefully constructed dioramas modeled after self-penned scenes, and then photographs them using a high definition camera. Each photograph is captioned with an anecdote that reveals the inspiration behind the scene.

Avanaut’s scenes are composed in striking detail, down to the sandy plains on ‘Tatooine’ and snowy battles on ‘Hoth’. View some of his creative compositions below, and the rest here.
