Behold the KR-KN! Iain Heath, aka Ochre Jelly, built this awesome LEGO sculpture of a monstrous octopus savaging a Star Wars Star Destroyer

The inspiration for this amazing scene, crafted with tiny plastic bricks, was Iain’s frustration with people critizing the LEGO Super Star Destroyer as being “a big dull gray set.”

He said, “I decided to change that…”

"After the death of the Emperor Palpatine and Lord Vader, the Empire made a last ditch attempt to thwart their enemies by rushing to complete their fleet of Venator class super star destroyers. However, by the time these vessels could be deployed, the Rebel Alliance had already developed its own super weapon, designation KR-KN.

The Legend of the KR-KN: A rare species of Space Kraken, known to exist only in the vast Dreighton Nebula, were sought out using the the Jedi’s most powerful clairvoyants, and brought under the Alliance’s control by flying super-computers directly into their brains. Many brave Ewok pilots were unwillingly sacrificed to accomplish this difficult task. Far from being cruel to the Kraken, this arrangement was completely symbiotic, as the creatures had evolved to prey on starships, their diet being composed entirely of metals such as quadanium steel.”

Space Kraken = Awesome
