Niels Frederiksen

LEGO Star Wars designer joins Echo Base Charity Con

The first panel we can announce for Echo Base Charity Con 2019 is “A day in the life of a LEGO Star Wars Designer” where Danish born Niels M. Frederiksen tells the story of how his lifelong dream became a reality when he joined LEGO in 2013 as a Star Wars designer. Since then, he has created no less than 20 Star Wars sets, including Rey’s Speeder (75099), the Sandcrawler (75220) and the San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Sith Trooper (77901).

During the panel, Niels will uncover the many different processes in the creation of a LEGO Star Wars set – the many different aspects a LEGO Designer has to keep in mind throughout the development of a set – but also the many fun, exciting and different challenges, tasks and experiences the job offers.

The presentation will you a unique look “behind the scenes”, tips for future LEGO designers and time for more casual chat and Q&A.

The panel will take place at Echo Base Charity Con 2019 on Saturday, December 21st in Kinepolis Jaarbeurs. Buy your tickets here today! More information about our panels can be found on our ‘Panels and Screenings‘ page.
