Christmasification of a Star Destroyer

December 25, 2009

Eurobricks is holding a Star Wars Christmasifiication challenge till the end of the month. We’ve all seen Christmasified Star Wars MOCs (my own creations) over the years. Larry Lars Nativity, Tim Goddard’s Xmas Speeder, and Louise Dade’s Season’s Greetings from Hoth are just a few examples.

Starwarsboy5 (aka Mos Eisley on Eurobricks) has come up with a rather ingenious Christmas Star Wars model that I’ve only seen something similar once before.

Before their secret location was discovered by the Empire, the Rebels always enjoyed Christmas on Hoth. Not only did they always have a white Christmas, but Luke and Leia could often be found singing carols near the giant Christmas Tree in the Echo Base Galleria…

The details on this are simply stunning! The micro ship ornaments are one of my favorite touches and the caroling Luke and Leia are a fun bonus.

You can see the full set of pictures on Brickshelf.com and you can also post comments on the Eurobricks forum.

Pirate Advent Calendar

Pirate Advent Calendar Day 25

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you enjoyed reading this year’s Pirate Advent Calendar review as much as I enjoyed doing it. πŸ˜€

I had a lot of fun writing the daily story and playing with Photoshop to find just the right background for all the models as they came out each day. I’m already looking forward to next year’s.

Have a Happy Holidays, whatever your beliefs may be. πŸ˜‰

Jaws 3d Movie Poster

I can just hear the terrifying two note melody as I see this. Alex Schranz made this impressive model based off of McFarlane Toys’ version.

It took me a moment to figure out what the large white teeth were at first, but then I realized it was multiples of Patrick’s head. Apparently the shark had a light snack of starfish before going after the main course. πŸ˜‰
