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.

UPDATE: I removed a picture from this post. It was the promo image of the Hallamark LEGO Boba Fett Ornament. I didn’t take that one and didn’t catch it till afterI made the post.

December 6 Star Wars LEGO Advent Calendar


Another Empire build. I couldn’t tell what this was till I finished the build. It’s Cloud City with a cloud Car flying patrolling it. I like this mini builds of important places in the Star Wars Saga.

LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2015 December 13


Today’s we have the Bounty Hunter, IG-88. Much cooler than the Battle Droids from previous years. It’s a cooler character. As for the parts the difference between IG-88 and the battle droids is the overall color and a different head. I wish the arms turned at the elbow so it could hold its guns.

LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2014 December 16


Today’s item is a Rebel Pilot. Most likely Dak Ralter who was Luke snowspeeder Gunner in the Battle on Hoth. The LEGO Character Encyclopedia says the minifig has a unique blue Rebel Alliance markings on his helmet. This version has a dual sided head.

The December 11th gift is a Tie-Fighter pilot to accompany yesterday’s Tie-fighter. Great minifig. One of my favorites costumes from the entire Saga. I need an army of these. Please send me some. 🙂

LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2014 December 10


The December 10th build is a Tie-Fighter. A cool ship from the original trilogy. It’s an improvement over the 2011 version. Both versions use a SNOT (studs not on top) brick for the cockpit of the ship. But the older one just added tiles to the side. Today’s model has bigger panels and looks more like Tie Fighter.

The December 7th build is an Imperial Snowtrooper. Finally another Trooper for the army. He fits well with the tripod laser cannon.

LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2014 December 7


The December 7th build is a tri-pod laser cannon converted into a  snow ball cannon. If you are having trouble see the small build instructions, look on the box art. The door for day one, just above today’s door, has a picture of the completed cannon. It’s Sunday so there’s new online content at LEGO.com

Vintage inspirted 92 card back shirt at Tee fury


Tee Fury has two Star Wars shirts today.

No One’s Slave features a pin-up version of Princess Leia in the metal bikini, a beautiful drawing of Leia. But the one fans of this blog may find interesting is 92 Card Back which is inspired by the vintage Kenner line.  It is designed after the figure card backs which showed all the figures in the toy line.

Tee-fury now has shoes and geeky “ugly sweater” sweatshirts. Scroll down their site to see.

It’s cold outside, what do you mean you have to pee?


We a dusting of snow, preceded by freezing rain. Usually when we get snow it melts away pretty fast. Luckily I had time to create a few mini-figs in snow pics.

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.

Speaking of predators, Hockey is back.
