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."

 

Order Information

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.

Yoda Speak Generator


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.


Hallmark Star Wars Ornaments Revealed.


Hallmark has revealed their 2014 Christmas ornament selections. Once again there are some cool Star Wars ones. One is a Yoda peakbuster ornament. This motion-activated ornament will catch peekers and snack seekers. Hear Yoda dish out wise warnings to stay away whenever he senses that peekers have come near. It’s 19.95 and will be available in October.star wars ornaments

Hear it at Hallmark.com

 

The past three years the have released a LEGO Star Wars ornament. The 2014 character is Boba Fett. I know I’ll be picking him up in July. Boba Fett retails for $14.95

boba-fett-root-1495qxi2593_1470_1Hallmark begins selling some of their ornaments in July. The following should be in store early in the month.

Rise of Lord Vader $19.95 Listen  Darth Vader one of my favorite characters but they pick his worse dialogue from the entire saga for the sound chip. If it was just an ornament without sound I might get it. I just don’t think I’ll pay $19.95 for one I don’t want to listen to.

the-rise-of-lord-vader-root-1995qxi2633_1470_1Cantina Band $34.95 Listen Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes star in this ornament. It’s cool and plays the cantina theme music. But expensive.

Sand Crawler $29.95 Listen and a Scout Trooper for $17.95
