You can’t spell “Legion” without “LEGO”!

On January 1, 2007 two hundred members of the 501st Legion were invited by George Lucas to march in the Rose Bowl parade. It was an epic moment to show the world that the Legion can represent the world of Star Wars with pride.

On January 1, 2013 we announced the beginning of the Rose Parade LEGO Diorama Project to gather 200+ LEGO Stormtrooper figures and other assorted figures to recreate that epic scene and have it available to show at massive Legion events (shooting for CVII in 2014!).

Save the Clone Wars

A few days ago, LucasFilm Animation announced the end of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars as a TV show on Their announcement stated that ” Lucasfilm has decided to pursue a new direction in animated programming,” that “we feel the time has come to wind down the series,” and that “fans can soon find this bonus content.” Bonus content makes it sound that the new content will be released on instead of being a season of the show or direct to DVD/Blu-Ray movies.

We appreciate Disney and LucasFilm and are looking forward to the sequel trilogy; however, we love The Clone Wars! We want more than bonus content! We want the many stories that the creators have set out to tell to be completed. We ask that the powers that be to please reconsider this decision.

LEGO Indiana Jones and Temple run

Indiana Jones and the Temple Run.

There is a board game based on Temple Run app. The app was originally .99 but Imangi Studios made it free. You can purchase upgrades in-game. Is the game any good? How would an app translate into an old school board game? Well I’ll put it this way the board game was originally $19.99. I found it on clearance for $1 at Wal-mart.

There are now versions based on Brave, Oz, and a Temple Run 2.
