Here is a cool Star wars page. The Yodaspeak page takes your text and translates it to the speech pattern of the Jedi Master himself.
Sorry it’s been a while since I posted. There is a new LEGO Minfig pic queued up for early Friday morning. I am editing another image for later as well.
Yesterday I made by goal of betting last year’s traffic numbers by one view. So one week left in the month to build on that number. I’ve beat last year’s traffic every month so far this year.
A few more post planned for today one is a review the other is a new LEGO photography comic.
TeeFury has grab bag tees today $6 for a random shirt $5 for kids sizes. Plus a Lego Disney shirt on Wednesday.
It’s been a busy day on the site I got a note from WordPress. I had a big surge in traffic after I posted today’s Advent build.
Your blog, Yoda Archives, Macro adventures of a Jedi Master, appears to be getting more traffic than usual!
50 hourly views!
50 hourly views might not mean much to many sites but it’s great for my fun pastime. I’m nearing my record for most views in a single day. With only 2 hours left in the day I doubt I’ll break the record but at least I’m close to it.
The other big traffic news is that the blog passed 25,000 all time views today!
Thanks for all the support you have given. I love to hear from you. I’ll continue to blog the advent calendar till Christmas Eve. Then some bonus post afterwards.
My site stats reveal that July was a record month for readership. The old record was for December last year while I was blogging the LEGO Star Wars advent calendar. The new record in visitors and views was due to Despicable me minion traffic.
August has started off strong with views on the LEGO Back to the Future set.
Welcome to all my new followers. Please feel free to comment and give feedback.

A great CUUSSO project shared by The Brick Collectors. CUUSSO Member Jedikermit has created some custom Muppet minifigs and vignettes with suggestions for more Muppet sets. The stage from the opening credits of Muppet show would make a great display for mini-figs.. Sam the Eagle would be easy to make reusing chicken suit guy’s body.
The Muppets would make an excellent series for LEGO sets, and have potential for both young builders and Adult Fans Of LEGO. There are dozens of popular characters, but there are also vehicles, playsets, and scenes that would make great buildable LEGO sets. Like other Disney properties that LEGO has produced, including Toy Story, Cars, and Pirates of the Caribbean, there’s a built-in audience of fans young and old that would be able to enjoy the system.
Some suggested sets at various price points:
KERMIT’S SWAMP $7.99
Kermit the Frog in a small swamp scene, with his banjo, some lily pads, and possibly a friendly alligator or his nephew Robin to add some play value. Could even include his bicycle that he uses to pedal away from it all in The Muppet Movie.
ELECTRIC MAYHEM BUS $39.99
The band from The Muppet Show has always been popular with kids and adults, and this set would include their bus as seen in The Muppet Movie. Characters would include Dr. Teeth, Floyd, Janice, Zoot and Animal, and all of their instruments would come with the set. A small stage could be built with the bus, or they could perform on top of the bus. They’re hippies like that.
MUPPET THEATER $59.99
The largest set would be The Muppet Theater, which would include a stage area, and a balcony to the side. Exclusive minifigures like Statler and Waldorf (the two old guys from the balcony), Sam Eagle, Swedish Chef, Rowlf the Dog, Mahna-Mahna and the Snowths, and unique versions of Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy could be included. Ideally, it would be wonderful to have different scenes for sketches that could be put onto the stage: some brick-built arches that represent the beginning of The Muppet Show; a small kitchen for the Swedish Chef, a grand piano for Rowlf..
This is is an awesome CUUSOO project please support Muppet LEGO CUUSOO.

I never kept a blog with my Hyperspace account so this blog is not affected. I’m just spreading the word in case anyone has a blog there.
By The way if you need a new blog home I recommend wordpress.
