British collective Brick to the Past built a historical LEGO display that’s probably one of the largest ever made. It’s a recreation of Hadrian’s famous wall at Rome’s northern frontier.
Over the course of this column, we’ve been looking into the armor and how it all fits together. This week, let’s talk about something that goes along with Stormtroopers: the famed E-11 Blaster Rifle.
