Miniland Elvis

February 8, 2010

The King has not left the building, he’s just been miniaturized. πŸ˜€

This is something I’ve been wanting to try for a while. Although I designed an Elvis Presley for Miniland Las Vegas at LEGOLAND California several years ago I could never have done this at LEGOLAND as rhinestone stickers won’t stand up to the elements.

Actually I designed several different ones — normal Elvis, a fat Elvis, Elvis in a gold suit, an African American Elvis impersonator, and a child dressed like Elvis — sadly none of these might ever see the light of day. That is unless I redesign them for some reason.

If it seems like I’m doing a lot of Miniland scale models lately that’s because I am. It might have something to do with my upcoming book (hint, hint πŸ˜‰ ).

If you are interested this custom Elvis is available at my Etsy store Folded Fancy.

TT Games Announces Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars

February 8, 2010

It’s official, there will soon be a third LEGO Star Wars Video Game.

Based on the popular Cartoon Network animated TV series. The game is set for Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PSP, DS, and PC this fall. The company promises characters from both seasons of the series, along with cameos from the movie characters. TT is working to make this game an improvement over previous installments with an enhanced level builder, Jedi and Separatist factions, and new attacks and abilities.

“LucasArts is an amazing partner, and working with them on the next iteration of the Lego Star Wars continues to be a great experience,” said TT Games director Tom Stone in the press release. “The team at TT is working hard at making this simply the best Lego game ever with all new gameplay and features never before seen in a Lego game.”

Now although Clone Wars isn’t my most favorite of the Star Wars universe, I’m always a fan of the Traveler’s Tales LEGO Video Games. πŸ™‚

Of course, I’m falling a tad behind on the games, since I’ve yet to get a PS3, Wii or Xbox. But I’ll catch up one of these days. πŸ˜‰
