LEGO Star Wars III: "The Build Off" is a 2011 Star Wars brickfilm by Jordan Johnson. It is set during a battle in the Clone Wars, and follows Yoda and General Grievous using bricks to construct equipment to aid their respective sides. It was commissioned by LucasArts as part of the promotion for the video game LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. Only the animation was by Johnson, as the sound design and effects work were handled by an intermediary marketing agency between LucasArts and Johnson. It was the last brickfilm released by Johnson before going on a two-year hiatus while on a mission with the LDS church.
Amid a battle, droids are pushing back the clone troopers, when Yoda arrives to assist the clones. A ship lands, and General Grievous emerges to aid the battle droids. A clone trooper points out a pile of bricks to Yoda, and Yoda uses the force to construct them into a turret for the clones to use. In response, Grievous uses the force to construct bricks into a walker which destroys the turret. Yoda then builds a vehicle for the clones to use to blow up the walker, so Grievous constructs an Armored Assault Tank to destroy that vehicle. Yoda calls in backup, and a clone trooper tank arrives to take care of the AAT. An incensed Grievous finally constructs a Death Star, which fires upon the clone tank. Yoda whistles, and a human-sized boot arrives to kick the Death Star away, winning the battle.
