Lego Jek-14 concept art by RobKing21 Lego Jek-14 concept art by RobKing21
Wow, I am so excited to post this particular image. Over a year ago, I was tasked by Lego to develop an original Lego Star Wars character and Jek-14 was the result (they even kept the original name - Jek-14). This image was the splash image I created for people at Lego to get the go ahead from the higher-ups. The dude sneaking in the back is an old idea that was passed around but the concept has evolved into something different (that which I cannot share with you at this time).

Thanks for looking! Stay tuned for more posts involving Jek-14!

Below is a link to the actual character that was unveiled at Toyfare ---> [link]

Jek-14 is property of Lego.

I knew that guy with the hood on the poster looked familiar!

Ha! Actually, that hooded guy was just an idea that never ended up happening. But isn't there always a hooded guy poking around in the shadows? Thanks for the link to the poster, I designed that "Droid Tales" logo and was wondering when it would be released, thanks for the heads up!

What a shame he didn't. Would you tell me who he was intended to be?
You've got to admit, he and that other hooded guy on the Droid Tales Picture look very similar, don't they?

There was talk of him being Dooku, and then the possibility of him being some new Sith all together, but that storyline was changed before it hit the screen. He does look like the guy on the Droid Tales poster. Fun fact: I designed that Droid Tales logo too.

And you certaintly did a great Job.
Well, then I guess it's not the same guy as the one on the Droid Tales Poster. It's a bit of a shame really, I thought that I'd find out whom I've seen on the concept art. I'm still exited to find out who it may be.
And thank you for the Information.

I love reading people's thoughts on Jek-14! Some are so close and others are WAY off! Cool.

This is neat beyond compare. Saw the vid and loved the translucent arm, but I wish they'd kept the torso like the one you have in the picture. It's far more visually interesting in my opinion.

WAIT! Am I crazy or did I see a minifigure at Toyfair with a transparent blue arm like this? Did you make a new character that gets a cool minifigure?!?

Yeah, that's the one. They asked us to come up with a concept for a new exclusive SW Lego character. I came up with this guy and did a sketch (I'll have to post that later) and they loved it. There will also be three Cartoon Network specials about him starting in May I believe. Thanks fer the comment.

He looks soo awesome! I haven't bought Legos in quite some time, but I'll definitely think about this one up!
Too bad Lego can't get the rights to some video game characters. I would love to see your Cole MacGrath design in my collection.

Yeah, that would be cool. The people at Lego have seen the Cole art and thought it was pretty cool.
