LEGO First Order Stormtrooper







Stormtroopers are a huge part of the Star Wars universe. Their stark black & white armor as well as their helmets, which are a stylized skull design, are iconic. This particular LEGO minifigure is a First Order Stormtrooper. These first appeared in Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, which came out in 2015, and I absolutely loved the evolution in the design of the helmet, with its cleaner lines and edges.

About my LEGO Star Wars Series

You can't grow up, a child of the 70s and not be a fan of Star Wars. Or, at least, I couldn’t. Growing up as the only daughter, sandwiched between two brothers who had all the Kenner Star Wars action figures, an X-wing fighter, a landspeeder AND a death star, I pretty much had no other choice but to love all things Star Wars. Forget Malibu Barbie, and her stupid dream house, I wanted to play with Luke Skywalker and his lightsaber. Also, Luke could move things … WITH HIS MIND! Half my childhood was spent holding my right hand out in front of me, straining with effort to try to lift things using only “The Force”.

Is it any wonder I'm drawn to paint Star Wars LEGO minifigures? Star Wars minifigures are to me, what sunflowers were to Van Gogh, or waterlilies were to Monet. You can’t not paint what you love, no? (I bet Van Gogh only painted sunflowers because his brother, Theo, never bought him any Star Wars LEGO sets. Also, Star Wars LEGOs were probably ridiculously expensive in 19th century France.)

About my LEGO Minifigure Series

Building large scale LEGO sets seems to be extremely popular, during quarantine. I guess putting together complicated LEGOs is a great way to take your mind off a global pandemic. Oh, and murder hornets. And a contentious election with a divided country. And … pass me the red LEGO brick, please. :-/

Sometimes, LEGO’s are simply an escape when the sky is falling. And so is art.
