Thrawn Ascendancy (BookShop Affiliate post)


The new Thrawn is out now. Thrawn Ascendancy is book one of a new trilogy.I can’t believe I didn’t post this months ago. I a a bug fan of Timothy Zahn. He wrote the Thrawn trilogy which sparked the revival of Star Wars in the 90’s.

star wars Thrawn book cover.

Beyond the edge of the galaxy lies the Unknown Regions: chaotic, uncharted, and near impassable, with hidden secrets and dangers in equal measure. And nestled within its swirling chaos is the Ascendancy, home to the enigmatic Chiss and the Nine Ruling Families that lead them.
The peace of the Ascendancy, a beacon of calm and stability, is shattered after a daring attack on the Chiss capital that leaves no trace of the enemy. Baffled, the Ascendancy dispatches one of its brightest young military officers to root out the unseen assailants. A recruit born of no title, but adopted into the powerful family of the Mitth and given the name Thrawn.
With the might of the Expansionary Fleet at his back, and the aid of his comrade Admiral Ar’alani, answers begin to fall into place. But as Thrawn’s first command probes deeper into the vast stretch of space his people call the Chaos, he realizes that the mission he has been given is not what it seems.
And the threat to the Ascendancy is only just beginning.

Quarantine Build #7 Mandaloriran and The Child Brick Headz


I’m back to quarantine building. Here is build #7. The Child and Mandalorian 2 pack set #75317. It has 295 pieces and was released earlier this month. I preordered this set during the May the Fourth promotion and it arrived at the end of July.
The Child comes with a hover cradle. The Child is smaller than a standard Brick Headz since it is of a child. The brain is a pink 1×1 brick. For those unfamiliar with brickheadz, they have a brain, it’s a pink 2×2 brick. other than that the build was straight forward.

The child brick headz kit. The child is a young alien of the came species as Yoda.

The Madolarian builds just like most of the Brick Headz builds. Build was very easy. The set has come great color. It has some cool greebling and a long rifle.

I enjoyed this build. The Child is cute and the Mandolarian is cool. I am glad I snagged this set I missed getting the Yoda & Luke set.

Since I having to stay at home, I’m building some of my sets I haven’t had time to build. Here is build #6. Benny’s Space Squad from The LEGO Movie 2. This is a small set just 68 pieces, It more of a mini fig collection with 4 minifigures, a robot, and two small vehicles. The astronauts are Kenny in yellow, Benny in blue, Lenny in pink and Jenny in white. Jenny looks identical to the Classic spaceman from a couple days ago. That was part of a gift with purchase a few years back.

Quarantine Build #5 Ship in a Bottle


Since I have to stay at home, I’m building some of my sets I haven’t had time to build. Here is build #5.LEGO Ideas 21313 Ship in a bottle. This Ideas set was released in 2018. It was designed by a LEGO fan, other fans voted for it. and LEGO decided to make in into a actual set. It has 963 pieces and retails for $69.99.

It is a challenging set suggested for ages 12+, There a lot of repeated steps, While building the ship you have to flip it from side to side to build. The ship builds rather quickly.

LEGO Sailing ship.

I really like the cannons. They are with only three pieces and are clearly cannons sticking out of a gun port.

LEGO Shipsdie view close up of cannons.

Building the bottle base was challenging cause it’s all clear pieces. I worked on some construction paper so the pieces would stand out against my white desktop. The parts reminded me of shattered safety glass. Safety glass breaks into chucks rather unlike normal glass that breaks into shards.

pile of clear LEGO bricks.

The bottle base took the longest time to build if you don’t get it right, the bottle sides wont fit right.

You build the boat then build the bottle around it. After you build the bottom half if the bottle you attach the ship to it. Then add the sea, which is made of single stud pieces. All of bag 3 is small translucent light blue pieces. There are two  #3 bags. Just dump them into the bottle, On LEGO Masters, Team unicorn used single pieces to make water and the judges didn’t like it. But here it is in a set.

The bottle cork is beautifully designed. The wax seal is very cool. Add the top half of the bottle.  The directions say add the 4 pieces that make up the bottle top to the neck one at a time then connect to the bottom half of the bottle. I found it easier to add the top panels to the bottom them add the neck to the top.

The base includes a compass, 2 globes and a name plate. The base is beautiful, Kind of a shame of it to be hidden under the ship.

Initially I originally thought the ship was too small but once the bottle was built, I realized the bottle was in 1:1 scale of real bottles. With that in mind, he ship was the correct size for a bottle.

Quarantine Build #4 Anakin’s Jedi Starfighter


Since I have to stay at home, I’m building some of my sets I haven’t had time to build. Here is build #4. This is a Revell Snap-tite model. It does not require paint or glue. It says no glue put could have used some. My glue is packed up somewhere so I did’t dig it out. Anakin didn’t want to stay in his seat and the cockpit window wouldn’t snap in place.

Modern problems need modern solutions.

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.

December 24 Star Wars LEGO Advent Calendar


Today’s mini-build is a pilot snow-man.  I believe the helmet is from Antoc Merrick, yesterday’s mini-fig. Snowmen are cool but they are not Santa. I miss the Jolly guy from this year’s calendar.

December 21 Star Wars LEGO Advent Calendar


A Speeder bike, another cool mini  build. It even has a mini stand. For the mini ships I usually put them on a stand i made from a couple clear pieces but I like this stand here. Wish they add them to each ship in the advent. It’s just a transparent head piece and a small disc. I might have pieces to build these.
