Battle In the Streets of Theed

With the excitement of Battlefront II growing, fans like Jamesbrick take to their plastic bricks to express their longing for the game to come sooner. With the game footage we have seen, we know that you will be able to play in Theed, the capital city of Naboo, as your favorite heroes and villains of the films (including the clone troopers, voided by the awesome Dee Bradley Baker once again)! This little fight scene created by James brings together recognizable sights from Theed, such as the tan architecture, green roof lines, and layered streets/balconies. With this being such a small scene, I'm quite impressed with how well it came together. There's just the right amount of texturing here! Not too much, not too little. Who would win in a fight, Rey or Maul?

Build-off with Graeme: Theed

Nathaniel Stoner

     My name is Nathaniel Stoner, and I am an very active LEGO builder.  I mostly build in the themes of castle and science-fiction, but I also dabble in other genres and create occasional random MOC's (My Own Creations). 

     When I was younger, I would get and build small LEGO sets for my birthday, but I was never really into them.  When they fell apart, I would become frustrated attempting to put them back together and would throw them in a box in my closet.  I couldn't stand them!

     Then, miraculously, I became addicted to the LEGO brick later in my teen years.  Ever since, I have continued to build up (pun intended) my collection of bricks and to expand my knowledge of techniques and building skills.  LEGO is truly more than a toy, its an art form and a way to express yourself.

     For the most part, I collect LEGO Star Wars (mainly the minifigs), which is probably my favorite LEGO theme.  I have a fairly decent collection, including some of the original 1999 sets, such as the Snowspeeder, X-Wing, and Naboo starfighter.  I also collected LEGO the Lord of the Rings when those sets first came out.  The minifigs are great, and the story remains one of my favorites ever. 

     My hope is to inspire other young (and perhaps even older) LEGO builders to unleash their inner creativity!  You can find me on my Flikr here
