The Building and Tear Down of Yoda

by

So I know its Thursday, and that I haven’t posted since Friday night. Well, that is partially because Yoda took a lot out of me and partially because I’m still prepping for Bricks by the Bay.

Between Saturday and Sunday Yoda grew and grew and grew:

But of course that isn’t the whole story. Yoda was needed for a building event this weekend up in Northern California. So, two hours after we built it up, we started to tear it down.

I was one of the fortunate few to get the special Grand Opening set of Minifigs:

It was also really fun hanging out with Master Model Builder Dan Steininger who I hadn’t seen for 7 years.

The weekend was exhausting and fun with lots of kids and lots and lots of bricks. I look forward to the next time. :)
