R2-KT and The Child challenge coin


There’s a new R2-KT challenge coin on the way. This one uses a redesign of a patch. The coin displays  R@-KT on onside and the child on the other. Sales of the coin benefit the United Way Covid-19 World Relief Fund. 

The patch was designed to show separation by how we positioned the characters, but the coin makes it even more clear: R2-KT on one side, the Child (aka Baby Yoda) on the other. Separated, but never far apart.

R@_KT and The Child with hearts in between them. Text sasy "hug you I can with the force."

Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary!


This weekend is the 40th anniversary of the release of The Empire Strikes Back! Boba Fett made his big screen debut in Empire  so here are a few pic of the bounty hunter. He was in the animated section of the Star Wars special before Empire but we don’t talk about that.

New series Brick Sketches



LEGO has annoucned a new series LEGO Sketches, These were designed by LEGO artist Chris McVeigh. He’s been making these on his site for years. But now are an official set that you can get this summer.

These first sets are BB-8, First Order Stormtrooper, Batman and Joker. I’ll get BB-8 and Batman.

I like how how designed batman grin.

I’ve admired these since I saw the on Chris’ site. They remind me of the old Toys R US build of Captain America set my son made. I toyed around with building my own character portraits like this but never got far. I bought some plates for it and that;s about as far as I got. The Brick Sketches have a better look that this old kit. The blocky look is replaced by a more in depth look. I can’t wait for these.

I recently got some DC mini figures blind bags. Green Lantern was the first one with the new posing flying parts. There’s a base and a clear peg. When you attach them to the figures it looks like they are in the air. I need to get some more of these for my photos.

Review

My favorites were Chewbacca cooking a Porg, Luke Skywalker, Poe’s X-wing, the Mynock, and Ahch-To. I think this is the third Chewbacca we’ve seen in the advent Calendars. One was a snowman version. But Chewie cooking a Porg is just funny. I love the micro location build like Ahch-To.
Like last year the wasn’t much holiday themed builds. I miss that the themed build help make the calendar special. See below for the snowman Chewbacca from 2016. I hope next year there are more. I also wish they would not show everything on the box. I want to be surprised by the build. It would be great if they would show a few and say 24 gifts. Maybe blot out the models, like Kenner did before Jedi was released. Also if they could make the online PDF instructions less spoiler. If you download it you can see all the builds.

What Christmas theme minifig would you like to see in 2020? I like to see Queen Amidala from set #9499 Gungan Sub as a Christmas tree.  Or back to the Original Trilogy and an Empire Strikes Back theme with Santa Solo in red Hoth gear. Plus a Miss Santa Leia. Or Maybe a Snow Droid C3-PO or Gift wrapped Han Solo in Carbonite with a bow. It would be real easy to make snowman BB-8,

What was your favorite? What was you least favorite?
