LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Transformation

lego star wars kit

LEGO came out with a Star Wars Darth Vader Transformation kit (7251)
for RM 44.90. I saw it at Jusco before I came back and couldn’t resist
buying it. I haven’t assembled LEGO sets in a long, long time.

I brought the Lego Star Wars Darth Vader Transformation box to the
office today to assemble during my lunch break. The back of the kit
shows how Anakin Skywalker can be transformed into Darth Vader using a
twisting movement. I just found the kit interesting, so I decided to
give it a go.

I opened up the box and pulled out several LEGO pieces inside a plastic bag. It didn’t look like it would be hard to assemble…

…until I noticed that there’s another packet of Lego pieces in the
box, a flat LEGO mounting board and an instructions manual. That’s the
problem with LEGO pieces, there’s always more than you think. 😉

This is the assorted LEGO Star Wars pieces from the first packet.
You can see an Anakin Skywalker LEGO man piece in there as well as an
unmasked Darth Vader LEGO man. There’s something about the characters
having a LEGO man head that cracks me up to no end. 🙂

This is the other (smaller) packet, which mostly contains the LEGO
pieces necessary to build the torture device/transformation thingy. The
instructions manual (a thinly disguised promotional brochure) is at the

The LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Transformation manual has the same flame-licking-the-fringes design as the box.

I must admit, I’ll be lost without the step-by-step instructions to build the contraption. Seriously.

I started with the base LEGO mounting board and started building up
the back towers (they’re actually LEGO pieces, but I’m trying to lose
myself in the illusion here, dammit ;)).

The side swing away multiple armed transformation machine came was
starting to bear some resemblance to the image on the box after a
couple of minutes.

It’s starting to look more and more like the LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Transformation kit now…

This is the “Darth Vader” side – the previous photo shows the “Anakin Skywalker” side.

Here’s a video to show how the LEGO swivels to “transform” Anakin Skywalker to Darth Vader.

lego star wars varients

There are also two other possible permutations with the existing
LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader transformation kit – there’s no instructions
for those, but it can be done with a bit of experimentation. One of
them depicts Darth Vader standing beside the machine and the other
shows Darth Vader with this huge ass phallic looking weapon.

I like it in the original form though, so the LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Transformation set is sitting on my desk at work now.

  1. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  2. There are some interesting points in time in this article but I don’t know if I see all of them center to heart. There is some validity but I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner as well.

  3. Just wanted to say that you have some awesome content on your blog. If it’s allowed I would like to use some of the information you provided on my blog. If I link back to this page would it be OK to do so?

  4. Great stuff from you, man. Ive read your stuff before and youre just too awesome. I love what youve got here, love what youre saying and the way you say it. You make it entertaining and you still manage to keep it smart. I cant wait to read more from you. this is really a great blog.

  5. Incredible article. Did you read the associated piece in the Huffington Publish a while again? Evidently more and more mainstream media are having to pay consideration to this. I hope your website will get more and more subscribers as this issue will get much more coverage, as it is a great resource.

  6. I only smoked socially before taking up the e cigarette, and in that respect did not expect changes with smell and taste. But I can definitely feel a difference the next morning if I have been smoking real cigarettes contra e cigarettes. No sides affects at all.

  7. Enjoy this post OP, however, I’d very much enjoy it in case you can embed a relevant video clip and also for some cause when i open this page in Chrome, it appears not the same as while i do it with Opera.

  8. Good article and right to the point. I don’t know if this is truly the best place to ask but do you people have any ideea where to employ some professional writers? Thank you 🙂

  9. Surprisingly! It is like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, besides that, this is helpful blog post. A wonderful read. I’ll certainly return again.

  10. That is my first time i go to here. I found so many attention-grabbing stuff in your your blog especially its discussion. From the tons of feedback in your articles, I assume I am not the only one having all of the enjoyment here keep up the good work.

  11. Hello. I just wanted to pop in and comment on the design of your blog. Don’t take this the wrong way, but it’s too loud. It’s doing way too much and it takes away from what youve got to say – which I think is really important.

  12. what’s happening. I appreciate it is not related to your post, however I am browsing your blog on my brand new blackberry but it won’t render properly, do you have any suggestions? Do you use a mobile theme for your site, if so can you please ensure it is not broken and everything is in order at your site. In the meantime I will check a few of my other favourite posts to double check it isnt just myself. Thanks friend.

  13. My concern is with Android as a gaming platform. Yes, Angry Birds plays well – but I bought Reckless Racing on both my iPhone 4 and Nexus One specifically to test out performance and I’m sad to report that where the iPhone is fast and fluid the Nexus One is sometimes slow and choppy. I even overclocked the Nexus but I didn’t notice a big difference. This being Sony I’m sure they’ll have their own store with games specific to their hardware so hopefully it’ll be a better experience than on my Nexus One. I would still prefer a proper slide out keyboard with alternate gaming buttons (think BlackBerry number keys over the letters).

  14. hi everyone, my vernacular is wienerwurst and i fitting require to say that this is an excellent blog assemblage and i really launch it stabilising, would it be alright if i submitted posts to this blog about topics i institute intriguing?

  15. I dont really know what youre talking about here. this cant be the only way to think about this can it? It seems like you know a lot about the subject, so why not explore it more? Make it more accessible to everyone else who may not agree with you? Youd get a lot more folks bend this if you just stopped making general statements.

  16. Good day, I want to tell you that I have found this article to be amazingly helpful to me. I also have a simple question for you, would it be fine if I were to give you a couple of my own great articles for other people to look at. Please get back to me, regards Jake

  17. At last I’ve found just the information that I’ve been in search of. You know, it was actually irritating to surf through a dozen websites but not get the to-the-point stuffs. However, your website was an exception. I can proudly tell that- “See, here’s a website that I value for my study! ”

  18. Howdy, buddy, I must give you my congratulations for building an extremely fantastic web site. You see, you’ve caught my fascination. And, I do not simply fail to remember guys who grab my interest. What I actually do to such guys is that I bookmark their websites and keep a steady look on their blogposts to check out if they happen to be as good as the ones that I first read. Now, Beware: YOU happen to be on the top of my bookmark list!
