A New Beginning for the Jedi. . .

The vibe is strong with this build. . .  There's such a neat atmosphere included with this beautiful creation by Inthert"Hidden deep within the jungles of Yavin 4, Luke Skywalker gathers his first four students under the ancient Massassi structure: ‘The Praxeum Arch’ to begin their training…"  We don't know much about Luke Skywalker's creation of a new Jedi Academy, but I'm sure the knowledge we seek is not behind us, but ahead.  This allows builders like Inthert to fantasize and create their own interpretation.  There's much to admire about this build, from the perfectly rounded base, that very unique archway, and those intriguing trees made out of Mixel joints.  Never seen that before!  An awesome build by a fan wanting more from Star Wars. . .

Jedi Search - 5/5 : The Master

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
