Rogue One. . .Pulling Away

I knew I'd see this cargo ship recreated in LEGO sooner or later!  It turned out to be sooner. ;)  Martin Harris 1 built the first LEGO version I have seen of the signature cargo shuttle seen in Rogue One.  I was surprised how big this shuttle was in the film, but seeing it built at this scale in LEGO makes it an even cooler model!  Of course, Martin got the four massive wings, and even featured the (very significant) orange "cargo crates" we see in the movie that contain a spoiler that I will not share here (yet).  If you haven't seen the movie yet...seriously, what have you been doing?  The cockpit is definitely my favorite design aspect of this creation, but I also love how the ship looks when the wings are in flight mode.  Nice work, Martin!

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
