LEGO Star Wars 2010 Slave 1

February 16, 2010

One new set that is high on my list is the new 2010 LEGO Star Wars Slave 1

Now considering that I have all of the past versions of Slave 1 including the rather lame 2000 version and the Japan exclusive mini I don’t really need another Slave 1. But the color scheme along with the Minifigure assortment has pulled me back in.

Bossk, a newly designed Boba Fett, and my ultimate favorite an actual Han in Carbonite are the definate selling points to me. Ah heck, who am I kidding, its all about the Han in Carbonite. 😀

Instead of the really lame 1x2x5 brick with a printed on Han this set has a poor tortured Han locked forever in a plastic mold. And the greatest thing is that the normal Han fits inside his carbonite coffin, smirking all the while.

To be honest I’ve lost interest in Star Wars in general over the years. Clone Wars just can’t get my interest. I can hear the gasps from here.

This set just might be my return to long ago in a galaxy far, far away. . .

Even in the Future, they have to go to school

September 10, 2008

Here’s a little Micro model that I made of a school bus. I was actually trying to make it with wheels, but every technique I tried I didn’t like. I know there is probably a way to do it, but even Master Model Builders get stumped sometimes. That is one of the great things about working in the Model Shop. If you can’t think of a solution someone else probably can.

And, although I hadn’t planned to, here is a Model Building Tip: ask for others opinions, tips, or help. They might see what you are doing in a whole new way and give you an idea that you might have never come up with. Ask your friends near you, or those you have around the world on the web, what they think of the model and how it could be made better.
