New launch of Star Wars Cloud City – Betrayal at Cloud City. It’s over fithteen years since Lego displayed the first set of Cloud City from the Star Wars movie episode five.

All the 2812 Lego bricks from this set makes a  very detailed awesome built. Landing platform with Boba Fett’s Slave I ship, a detailed promenade, a dining room with seating for 5 minifigures and a garbage processing room. There’s a carbon freeze chamber with a function to ‘freeze’ Han in carbonite.

The set comes with 18 minifigures Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker in Bespin outfits, Chewbacca, C-3PO, Lando Calrissian, Lobot, 2 Cloud City Guards, 2 Cloud Car Pilots, Leia and Han in Hoth outfits, Darth Vader, Boba Fett, 2 Stormtroopers a Ugnaught, plus R2-D2 and an IG-88 droid.

There is an interrogation chamber with a turning interrogation chair plus a prison cell. The hangar has a secondary landing platform and a secret trapdoor.

New lego Star Wars BrickHeadz Summer 2018

LEGO Facebook has released the upcoming summer LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz. I like the two-pack with a Luke (Dagobah) and Yoda (41627). Since Yoda isn’t a tall person, he’s shorter than the usual BrickHeadz. I think they’ve designed his ears in an authentic look. They have also made a great hair for Luke.

Ewoks family by Lego 7

The Ewoks are my favourite characters in the Starwars epilog. If found this brilliant Lego creation done by the nick name Lego 7 at flickr. He has included all the necessary details to reflect the Ewoks. Very clever and thoughtful design. Check out his flickr page for some ideas!

New release Y-Wing Starfighter 75181

On May the 4th an Ultimate Collector Series Y-Wing starfighter will be released. The model has an amazing level of details, including an openable minifigure cockpit for the included Gold Leader. Other features are a wheel-activated rotating ion cannons on top, retractable landing skids and a space for the included R2-BHD astromech droid. There are 1967 pieces.

New release – Yoda’s hut 75208

On the New York Toy fair they displayed the new Lego Star Wars 2018 summer sets. One of my favorites was Yoda’s hut. Master trainer Luke returns in a new look. The previous set from 2003, Luke had a clear yellow skin tone. You also get Yoda and a dirty R2-D2. I really like the new R2-D2! It contains 229 parts in different colors. This set looks more like the real hut from Empire Strikes back .   


 

 

Collectable Lego Minifigure TC-14 Protocol Droid

TC-14 is a protocol droid like C-3PO, but in a silver version. This minifigure was available as a special promotional polybag on the 4th of May 2012. I bought it from Amazon and it arrived safely. This is one of the most unique Lego Star Wars minifigures and one of my most valuable ones. It stands out with it’s shiny chrome coating and nicely detailed prints on the chest and the back. A common issue with this fig is that some comes with scratches. Apparently this has something to do with the production process, so don’t worry!

 

Star Wars + Super Bowl = True?

Tonight is the greatest sport event of the year in the USA. The 52nd Super Bowl with New England Patriots vs Philadelphia Eagles. It will definitely be a great battle with a fight to the bitter end. There are rumors that Lucasfilm will take the chance to promote the upcoming movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story, during US biggest televised event. Well, we just have to wait and see!

Star Wars in reality

The new Star Wars movie The Last Jedi has given the most dedicated fans inspiration to new destinations. There are fans who devote their vacation to cities and countries where the highlights from the movie was recorded. On the top of the wish list is the Bolivian Salar de Uyuni, the distant planet Crait. Dubrovnik is making a debut as the casino city Canto Bight and the magnificent Irish Islands Skelling Michael known as an outpost for the Jedi master Luke Skywalker.

 

 

My Christmas built BB-8

I have just a few days left of my Christmas holiday in Mexico. Not to finish the built to fast, I’ve restricted myself to build some section every day. Now I’m done! The set looks quite simple but there is some clever engineering on the inside constructed with Lego technic. BB-8 has two main functions, one wheel spins the head and the second wheel pulls out the torch. Next step for Lego is to created a larger version of this modell with more remote controlled functionality.

The origin of the Sandspeeder is still a mystery, some believe it’s from the upcoming Solo movie. I will write reviews of some of the these sets, watch out!
