LEGO Glimpse Into Star Wars Lore

A Mandalorian territory, Concord Dawn is a world in the Star Wars universe that many fans are not familiar with (unless you really delve into the lore).   Builds like these are creations that I would really like to see more of in the community, bringing life and shining light into the shadows of this great franchise.  I personally would like to thank Vaionaut for creating this beautiful creation representing a (sort of) forgotten aspect of the universe.  The build is highly detailed, implementing an interesting color scheme, lots of Nice Parts Usage (NPU), and a hidden secret that I think was actually by accident?  Could be wrong on that.  (Hint, it's in the upper left portion of the building.)   For those who are interested, Concord Dawn recently became canon thanks to some of the latest episodes of Star Wars Rebels.

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
