A little something I put together late last year:

Image


Based on Useful_Oxymoron's Tinker, tailor, soldier... spaz collection (specifically the second one, The Honourable Scoundrel), Tara's Blue Leader hotrod Y-Wing, with elongated engines, stabiliser fins, and the main engine pylons angled rather than straight (although I cheated a bit based on the parts I had to hand, the new pylons don't actually bring the engines any closer to the fuselage, and they're 45 degrees rather than 50... and I only realised on re-reading that the story never specifies if the new pylons are angled forward or back, I just assumed forward because it seems more agile that way). In other respects it's just a standard Lego Y-Wing from a few years back - I got a new Gold Leader one as part of the Rogue One line, so I figured it was time to follow up the idea I'd had from the story back when I first read it and modify this one.

Still a few odds and ends to go (which I guess means at least one more post for this thread someday) - I need to go hunting through my spare parts for blue discs to replace the yellow on the engine pods, and I'll be swapping the current droid for one with a transparent head, so it's a proper R3. Might also swap Tara's flight suit and helmet for one of the newer, more detailed ones they did for Rogue One. I'm also (naturally) looking at options for a matching Willow minifig, in a rebel tech outfit - might use a spare hair from the new Barbara Gordon for that, it's a bit curlier than I'd at first thought, but Willow's hair wasn't always straight, so it'll work.

So yeah, Willow/Tara Star Wars Lego, that's now a thing.

I mean this in the least creepiest way possible, but I fangirl over you regularly and this kind of stuff is exactly the reason why.

I love making W/T crafty stuff. I've used the various graphic generator things like Peanuts style and Powerpuff Girl style, some W/T cookies, a W/T yule manger, got W/T coke bottles printed up when that promotion was happening but somehow LEGO never occurred to me!

Yours is brilliant. Plus you sent me towards that story thread, which I don't think I'd seen before. Looking forward to seeing any additions/amendments!

Aw, thanks :blush (Not creeped, promise.)

So, as promised, minifigs to go along with Tara's Y-Wing:

Image

Like I was thinking earlier, Tara's now wearing a Rogue One flight suit (from a U-Wing pilot as it happens, but I'm sure the rebellion just used whatever was to hand rather than trying to keep all their gear uniform), there's the new transparent-headed astromech as R3-Y5 (who's kind of a precursor to Chopper from Rebels, as the surliest droid in the galaxy), and Willow's hair is from Barbara Gordon; her outfit is from Commander Sato (Rebels again), because it was a rebellion costume so that works, looks utilitarian enough for tech work, but has a bit of style to it. (The faces aren't ideal, but there's a shortage of flesh tone female faces, so this is the best I could scrounge up. Not a great many blonde and redhead hair pieces to choose from either, as it happens.)

And while I had those minifigs out, I thought I'd redress them to fit into the Willow/Tara Supergirl verse hinted at in one of the TV guide graphics at the end of She-Ra episodes - so this is a Lego set of an uber W/T pair from a tv show that exists in a fictional world in which the She-Ra fics are a real tv show. Getting into Inception kinds of things here.

Image

Willow Luthor and Tara Zor-El, in front of the little Fortress of Solitude piece I put together for the regular Supergirl - actually made out of the parts of the first version of Elsa's Ice Palace from Frozen, since a second version came out recently that's larger and better looking. What's going on with Willow's hands is an idea that popped into my head kind of fully-formed for how the season finale for Supergirl could go, with Lillian (I guess Sheila in this version? Let's call her Lillian anyway, 'Sheila' just doesn't have that ring of villainy, especially if you're Australian) using some evil doohickey to turn the sun red, thus depriving Supergirl of powers, and of course it goes out of control and the Earth's going to be destroyed in a supernova, and then Lena/Willow shows up, and it turns out that in earlier episodes when she was looking all suspicious hunting down the Warsuit from Lex's arsenal (I suppose that'd be Xander here, given the similar names), she actually wanted it so she could rework its kryptonite radiation emitters to project intense sunlight, so she can power up Tara, Earth is saved, and there's so much kissing. (Not with Mon-El though, obviously.) The season finale won't be for a couple more months or something, I'm going to stay in my fantasy world until then.

Thanks all :grin

Now, the problem with making a Willow Tara Lego thread is, once you've shown off Lego Willow and Tara, you have to think up something else to fill the thread with. But I had an idea, helped (again) by the Star Wars crossover - a little scene from the original Tinker Tailor Soldier Spaz. On the bridge of the Super Star Destroyer Executor...

...Willow sneakily steals data for the Rebellion right from under the helmeted nose of the Dark Lord of the Sith himself.
