Millennium Falcon

Those ‎Corellians sure know how to build a vehicle. This one in particular made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs. Who couldn't love that! Anyway, what Lego Star Wars collection would be complete without the Millennium Falcon? Here's mine :)

Boba Fett

I've had quite a few discussions about all of the fantastic Star Wars characters. Of course this almost always leads to the question, "who is the coolest character in Star Wars?" My unvarying answer: Boba Fett (followed closely by Bib Fortuna, but more on that later). Think about it: in Empire Strikes Back all of the bad guys are after Luke and Han. Luke and Han have defeated the first Death Star, out-fought legions of Storm Troopers, outrun Star Destroyers, and fought off Sith Lords. Who captures them in Empire Strikes Back? A single bounty hunter. He also takes out IG88, but that's not in the movie. And what does Boba Fett do with his reward money? He parties it up in Jabba's Palace! What does all of this mean for me? It means the first Star Wars Lego item I put together was Boba Fett's ship, Slave One. Thanks to anyone who visits! Love, the Mighty Miles Four

Trip to Legoland

Hello all, It's been a while since I updated the blog, and I finally have some time to write. As vacations, outings, and updates are mostly being done by Facebook, I decided that I'll dedicate this blog to our Lego activity. Now the blog will get less traffic than before :) Anyway, we took a trip to Legoland last week and it really got us in the mood to construct, sculpt, design, ETC. things out of small bits of interlocking plastic. What fun! I cleared out some room in the basement and our ping pong table is now our official Lego station! I'll soon post some pics of our creations, but for now I'm going to show some pictures of the trip that motivated us. Thanks and love, The Mighty Miles Four
