From the Pit

July 24, 2013

Sometimes its not about the build, its about the lighting.

Rancor's Pit

Vesa Lehtimäki has made a rather scary scene of TK-24/7 looking for Death Star plans in the dungeons of Jabba’s Palace and Jabba’s favorite pet stealing Tk-24/7’s helmet.

This isn’t really a build, but the lighting is what makes this photo noteworthy. 😉

10236 Ewok Village

I’m a little late in posting this, but at the same time I couldn’t not post it either. And I could have uploaded the pictures myself, but as FBTB has done such a good job, I’ll just borrow their pictures.

This is one of the first Star Wars sets that I’ve really gotten excited about. So much Ewok-y goodness, so many figures, so many plant elements…excuse me while I wipe the drool of my laptop (just kidding 😀 ).

I really like the new Leia fig, I see good uses for both her hair and torso

I hate to say it, but most new Star Wars sets bore me — you’ve probably heard this before if you’ve been reading my blog — and although I did break down and buy Jabba’s Palace for Princess Leia in her Boussh Bounty Hunter disguise, Oola and Salacious B. Crumb, I pretty much don’t buy a lot of Star Wars anymore. I will probably get the Rancor Pit and most likely Jabba’s Sail Barge for the same reasons I got the palace set — the figures.

But what makes the Ewok Village more interesting to me is the whole tree house / hideout aspect of it it on top of a great line-up of figs. It reminds me a lot of the Forestmen sets, which is still one of my favorite themes. And at $250 USD, its a pretty decent price for 17 figs.
