At the meetings, Cartoon Network will tout its ratings growth in 2012, which became the network’s most-watched year in Prime in its 20-year history, and will present its upcoming slate, which marks a shift from live-action back to the network’s core animated fare. It includes three quarterly installment specials of The Yoda Chronicles, a new CG-animated foray into the “Original Saga” world of Star Wars. Cartoon Network also airs Clone Wars

The Yoda Chronicles: LEGO Star Wars returns in epic style with THE YODA CHRONICLES, a thrilling, funny and action-packed new LEGO Star Wars story told in three animated TV specials! Set in the “Prequel” Star Wars timeline, THE YODA CHRONICLES stars the one and only Yoda—the Jedi Master who has seen it all, done it all, and taught generations of Jedi Knights—in an all-new adventure. With the help of a fresh class of Padawans, Yoda leads the Jedi in a desperate fight to stop Darth Sidious and his minions from creating a new super-weapon that could crush the Republic and win the war for the forces of Evil.

The Empire Strikes Out DVD!


last year’s LEGO Star Wars special, The Empire Strikes out, will be released on dvd March 26! The trailer shows a mini-fig with the dvd.

Who would have thought blowing up the Death Star would come with consequences? It seems that while Jedi-in-training Luke Skywalker attempts to embark on his next mission, he discovers that his new celebrity status can be a double-edged lightsaber when he’s constantly mobbed by fans in LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out. Available on DVD March 26th.

Star Wars.com announcement

After a record-breaking debut on Cartoon Network, The LEGO Group and Lucasfilm announced today that LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out is coming to DVD on March 26, 2013. The 22-minute original standalone special will bring the same tongue-in-cheek humor fans know and love in a brand new epic adventure featuring everyone’s favorite LEGO Star Wars characters. Distributed by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, the DVD will include an exclusive collectible Darth Vader LEGO mini-figure and is available now for pre-order at http://www.foxconnect.com/awesome.

In LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out, the original Death Star has just been destroyed, but Luke, Han, Chewie, and Leia can’t celebrate for too long — a new Imperial threat has arisen. And while Luke has become a household name as “Death-Star-Blower-Upper,” he finds that not even the Force can protect him from a new menace: crazed fans! Things aren’t looking so good for Darth Vader, either, who finds himself locked in a hilarious “Sith-ling” rivalry with Darth Maul. LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out is an action-packed, comedic romp, perfect for fans of any age.

When LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out premiered on Cartoon Network, it became the number-one telecast of the day with kids ages 6-11 and boys ages 2-17. Written by Emmy Award-winner Michael Price (The Simpsons), the special features many of the beloved Star Wars voice actors fans know and love, including Anthony Daniels, Sam Witwer, Ahmed Best, and more.

As a kid there was only one thing I enjoyed more then turning on my favorite video games, and that was building with my Legos. The city and pirate sets were awesome, but there was nothing like the space sets!

So what Lego Elements do you spot in this one? I see a lot of space theme fig and builds. There’s Yoda and a 2×4 brick.


Galaxy’s Most Dangerous Predator


As I near the two-year anniversary of this blog I thought I’d post some of my pre-Yoda Archives work. I’ve mentioned before that this blog was partially a result of a 365 project I did years ago. This is one of the Marco shots I did that year. It’s a vignette I made with Boba Fett and a Predator action figure.
