Ahead of the release of the set on 1st September, Brick Fanatics sat down with LEGO Star Wars Design Director Jens Kronvold Frederiksen and Designer Manager Michael Lee Stockwell to discuss their work on LEGO Star Wars 75292, The Razor Crest.
Could you talk about what you have included in the Razor Crest and how you have represented it?
Jens: One thing that probably is interesting is that we made a new cockpit element. It was something we saw very quickly that we had to do. We’ve done an element that is a really good LEGO element for other purposes because it is a six modules half circle. In a solid colour it would also be a nice building element.
Also you’ll probably appreciate because of the domed curve surface we had to print the details on, it’s not stickers. Sometimes we are doing stickers, sometimes print, that is also very much depending on how well it prints. With this element, the size and so on, it was possible to make a good looking print. So that’s one of the new things in the model.
Then one thing that I particularly like when you open it up, here are the Carbonite blocks, there are two of them inside like on a bookshelf. If you have been with LEGO Star Wars for as long as I have, we have gone back to how it all started with this 1x2x5 brick with the character on. Here there are two different characters, it is stickers, but still it’s a bit like it was in the beginning.
