Happy Friday, fellow Bothans! This week brought us quite a bit of conversation about LEGO Star Wars and Star Wars in general, so let’s take a look at some of the busiest threads we’re got going right now.
• [POLL] Figs vs Builds: what floats your boat? — This is a pretty good convo started by Don, in which he asks an excellent question: Do you buy sets more for the minifigs, or for the parts and the build? Drop on by there to vote in the poll, and make sure to throw in your two cents on the subject.
• Speculation: How Will Ahsoka Tano Die? — Pretty morbid question, huh? Whether you hate her or… hate her less, she’s probably going to have to go kaput eventually, seeing as how we never see her in the movies afterwards. Then again, she could certainly go into exile. Or maybe she’s that ADD Stormtrooper in Episode IV who thought he heard something in the hallway of the Death Star…
• Best SW lego gimmick? — Here’s a fun conversation going on about our favorite little gimmicks found in LEGO Star Wars sets. Dig the flick-fire missiles? How about that sweet walking AT-AT, or the nice smooth transformation features of the Vulture Droids, or even something as simple as cool doors that open and close? Yay for being easily amused! Anyway, check this thread out and share your thoughts on these groovy features and more.
• Who is your favorite Star Wars character? — A classic question. Everyone has their favorite character, so which Jedi/Trooper/Senator/etc. do you hold closest to your heart? After this post, I may have to go with Ric Olie! Hah!
Y’all may remember a while back that I mentioned how awesome things are over in the MOC forum? Well, the hubbub certainly hasn’t died down at all, and things are rockin’ more than ever over there. Let’s take a look at some of the MOCs that have come to us over the interwebz this past week!
• [Star Wars] Clone Wars Era Update – 4 new MINI Models! — The man, the myth, the legend. Check out the latest round of MOCs Legostein has added to his huge collection of MINIs.
• [STAR WARS] Can’t afford 10195 + Felucia — Another amazing master of the MINI! Check out roguebantha’s latest creation, and his solution to not being able to afford the new 10195 Dropship set.
• [Town] ‘E’ is for… — Existentialism? Ebert & Roeper? Extreme Draft-Dodging? Click on over here to check out the latest vignette from the very talented Athos and find out what job he covers next!
• [SW] Millennium Falcon — Take a look over here to see some really great mods to the 4504 Millennium Falcon by AdmiralGrievous!
That’s gonna do it for this week! Y’all have a great weekend, and be sure to follow FBTB on Twitter!
