The internet is a magical place. Photographer Kenny Louie seems to have found a muse in Lego mini figs, creating numerous adorable and narrative photos using the figures, many of which prominently featured Star Wars characters including Storm Troopers, Jedi, and even the great Darth himself.
I dare say, some of these photos are almost as good as cat photos, like this one entitled, “It’s a trap!”
And of course, finding the humor in the juxtaposition of Darth Vader in everyday situations. Like this one with a doctor, captioned, “Can you take another deep breath?”
Better yet, how about a photo combining both the mundane and the extraordinary – like one where Darth is longboarding in front of a couple Storm Troopers presumably heading to the skate park to spend an afternoon.
Some photos made me ask how much I really knew Star Wars. After seeing this photo, I ended up asking myself what Darth Vader would order at a tiki bar. I ultimately settled on a dark rum piña colada.
Whether seeing a Trooper get burned by a tiny dragon, or imagining a world where Darth and Luke play video games together (as above) the photos are pure fun. You should check out Kenny’s Flickr albums featuring the mini fig photos: Lego and Minifig Mondays.
