Artoo-Deertoo and Santa-Pio

There’s still a couple days till Thanksgiving, but with Christmas just around the corner Holiday MOCs are starting to appear.

This model by SPARKART! is so full of win! The santa hat and antlers are adorable on R2 and C3-PO and the sparkly lights in the background set everything off.

Star Wars Wedding Cake Topper

May 30, 2011

A few days ago I was asked two questions in an email —
1. Do I make bi-racial couples
2. Can I do theme cake toppers.

Naturally my response was yes to both. 🙂

I love the requests I get from people because sometimes I end up making things I wouldn’t make otherwise. So, I created this:

Leia and Stormtrooper Wedding Cake Topper 1

Leia and Stormtrooper Wedding Cake Topper 2

Now I have to admit, I did not make the Stormtrooper helmet. My brother actually designed that and then challenged me to make a full Miniland scale Stormtrooper. He also designed a very cool Darth Vader helmet, but that I’ll leave for another post. 😉

I also drilled into the 1×1 green plates to make the flowers. But as I mentioned in a previous post, sometimes its necessary. The main reason this time was not so the Princess Leia would have a funky bouquet of flowers, but because the bride specifically asked for lime green and purple. And, as LEGO only makes official flowers in a handful of colors, drilling 1×1 round plates was a good solution. Especially as I have a huge bag of them that I got from Pick A Brick.

With the new Star Wars Miniland area at LEGOLAND now open, I’m thinking about creating a whole bunch of the iconic characters. Oh, and here’s a fun fact — when we had Miniland Florida at LEGOLAND California we actually had Han Solo and Princess Leia hidden in the cluster by the Rocket Garden. We also had Agent J and K of the Men in Black with very shiny weapons looking for alien threats. 😀
