Escape from Wampa Cave

June 29, 2011

Something about this picture by Padozky struck me. I think its the shear awesomeness of the lighting and the “snow.”

I can almost hear the howling below-freezing Hoth wind and the bone rattling roar of the Wampa as he comes to claim his newest meal. πŸ˜€

2010 LEGO Star Wars Clone Turbo Tank and Hoth Wompa Cave Sets

February 10, 2010

Wired.com brings us hi-res images of two of the newest 2010 LEGO Star Wars sets from New York’s Toy Fair.

8098 Clone Turbo Tank $120 USD

8089 Hoth Wampa Cave

I’m pretty happy with the Wampa, although it reminds me a lot of the Rock Raiders cave monster from years past. What is it with LEGO making monsters that have ridiculously long arms?

With the Wampa and the Taun-taun now a reality the only important Classic Star Wars animal that is missing is the Rancor. Yet another long-armed monster. πŸ˜€

On a totally unrelated note, there are finally clear images of two of the upcoming Disney Toy Story 3 sets now on Eurobricks.com
