Sure, we just featured some ripping 2001 LEGO spaceship designs, but this is too stellar not to mention. As a promotion for The Phantom Menace's 3D re-release in Germany, LEGO builders Rene Hoffmeister and Lorenz Lnggrtnr constructed a massive circus organ that doubles as a gargantuan diorama. Explains Lorenz of its mechanics:

We took the four most famous Star Wars worlds — Hoth, Tatooine, Endor [Ed's Note: I'm guessing they meant Naboo] and the Death Star — and built them on to the barrel, accordingly to the musical composition. When the organ is turned, the bricks touch little mechanical sensors — which strike the keys of a keyboard and play the Star Wars main theme.
