While Solo had it’s fair share of problems, box office numbers notwithstanding, I thought it was a fun movie. Yes, there were some cringe moments, and I think a better story could have been told, but there were also some absolutely awesome stuff. One of which were the totally badass Range Troopers. They reminded me of elite snowtroopers, and I think that was the idea. And while the LEGO Range Trooper constraction figures were OK, builder nobu_tary shows us how it’s done with this rework of the figure.
Many of us Star Wars nerds can agree that Solo was not the greatest movie of the franchise, however, polywen reminds us that it did bring some awesome new material to the table such as L3-37. With the sarcasm of an R2 unit, the excitement of a mouse droid, the body of K-2SO, and the charisma of a gonk droid, what's not to like? Ok, maybe that last part about the gonk droid is not totally accurate. Nonetheless I still believe that this character has a lot of potential for the future of Star Wars movies and who knows? Maybe now that she's part of the Millennium Falcon we might see a Star Wars spinoff movie where she goes on a rampage to free all the droids.
Solo is less than a week away, and I'm happy to say I'm still pretty much spoiler free (don't do anything to change that). This is from the trailer, an ominous and exceptionally cool train that runs over and under the track. It looks like it's going to be an exciting scene, and has inspired M. Mipi to build this fantastic little diorama.
Solo is a week away, and the anticipation is growing. I remain cautiously optimistic for it, and will certainly see it opening weekend. Builder Boba-1980 built this pretty impressive little scene depicted in the trailer. No idea what Han has done, where he's going, where he's coming from or why he's being chased, but it's certainly exciting.
We have a pretty strict no leak policy here at BrickNerd, as well as spoilers. But you know what a Star Wars fan I am, and I've tried to remain cautiously optimistic about the upcoming Solo movie, but what the heck is this? Lucasfilm (and LEGO) are totally jumping the shark on this one, how can young Luke possibly be in this movie?
UPDATE: Yes of course this is an April fools joke! That is of course unless young Luke actually ends up in the movie, then the joke is on all of us.
