What do you do when you’ve got a few Star Wars Lego sets, some explosives and a high-speed camera? Well, I’m sure there are plenty of creative things that you could come up with. But one group had all of these materials and did what we’ve all wanted to see. They blew up their Lego, and captured it in slow motion.
When I was a kid, they didn’t have officially-licensed Star Wars Lego kits, but that didn’t stop me from building some of my favorite vehicles and acting out battles, anyway. However, I was always too scared to do any damage to them, for fear that I’d never get them back together.
Thankfully the guys behind Glorious Eye Candy did all of that for me. With an AT-AT, an AT-ST, and a bunch of minifigs and random other small sets, they set about wreaking havoc on their collection and capturing it at a beautiful 3000 frames per second.
It’s hard to say just how much was destroyed during the shooting of this short clip, but at least it was done in the name of art. Plus the sound effects and the Rage Against the Machine playing just make it all the more enjoyable.
