B-Project

Nothing screams Star Wars more than an epic space battle with some masterfully composed music by John Williams. Although The Last Jedi was not a perfect movie, it did provide some of this classic Star Wars goodness. This bomber by Mirko Soppelsa is an amazing rendition of one of the newest vehicles to take flight and its details are jaw dropping (or should I say bomb dropping?). Be sure to check out more photos while I geek out and hum Star Wars music.

Microfighters Battle of Crait

An interesting model by Boba-1980, but one that is rather fun and creative. The builder recreated the Battle of Crait, something we have probably seen plenty of times by now (and it hasn't even been a year yet!), but Boba-1980 make it in microfighter form. A condensed command shuttle, a smaller version of the base's turrets, and even a tiny First Order battering ram. What does that all create when combined? A fun model that I'm sure many kids could enjoy playing with.

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

Your Snoke Theory Sucked

Umm, spoiler alert? Yeah, Snoke was wrapped in mystery until last December, now he's still mysterious, but decidedly unwrapped. After months and months of speculation from the fan community, the new ultimate baddie in the Star Wars universe was unceremoniously dispatched in The Last Jedi, as brilliantly recreated in Brickheadz form here by the great Ochre Jelly. So much for him huh?

Happy Star Wars Day, kids!

Battle Of Crait

I still haven't made up my mind about The Last Jedi, and I know I'm not alone. There's a lot of stuff I love about it, and a lot of stuff I hate about it. But you can't deny there's some stunning visuals in it, including the climactic battle on Crait, brilliantly recreated here by builder First Order Lego. My favorite detail has got to be the little crystal fox.

Porg: The Other White Meat

Porgs, they are primed and ready to be a love it/hate it aspect of Star Wars The Last Jedi. I for one think they are kinda cute, but am honestly a bit leery. But I swore to reserve judgement until I see the movie, and I will. Regardless if you love them or hate them, you gotta admit they're probably good eatin', at least ewoks think so (and so does Ochre Jelly).
