Powerpig’s Remarkable Brick Sketches – Part Deux!

The Empire's Finest

Deux means two, for those of you who don’t speak French… like me. Chris McVeigh hasn’t slowed down in his creation of pop culture LEGO marker sketches and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to make exact copies of them and put my favourites up in a frame.

Hallmark Reveals This Year’s LEGO Star Wars Ornament: Yoda

Yoda Keepsake Ornament

Anyone else sick of what is turning out to be the Year of the Yoda? Good, ’cause neither am I! Hallmark has announced their newest entry into their line of LEGO Star Wars Christmas Tree ornaments and it really should come to no surprise to anybody that it is famed Jedi Master Yoda. He is offered in a rather static pose and looks more like a minifigure than a statue. Seems lazy to me, and I’m not talking about what his eyes are doing there. Still, this is one line we can all claim to be successful completionists on up until they wise up and start offering convention exclusive ornaments. Then we’re screwed. Anyways, he’ll go on sale later this year at the low, low price of $14.95. Hallmark’s previous LEGO Star Wars ornaments were Darth Vader and Stormtrooper.

Thanks to banthafodder for the heads up.

New LEGO Adult Watches, Retractable Pens

LEGO Boba Fett Adult Watch

You know, as watches go, the LEGO ones are clearly geared towards kids what with the buildable strap and ho hum design. Recently, Things From Another World listed some “LEGO Adult Watches” but with no pictures until now. There’s the Boba Fett watch above, which isn’t all that bad to be honest with you. Definitely a step up from any of their previous offerings and might actually appeal to an adult. Might. ‘Cause let’s face it, if LEGO Star Wars watches aren’t the ultimate indicator of your geek status, nothing is. There’s also a Darth Vader watch. A Stormtrooper design is also mentioned, but no listing was found. Price for the watches is $27.99 on pre-order.

LEGO Star Wars Pens

And in other niche market news, have you ever had a minifig in your pocket and wished it was a pen instead? Well wish no more! There is a series of LEGO Star Wars pseudo-minifigs where you can pull off the head and voila! You get a spinal cord retractable pen! The pic is tiny, but it looks like there’s a Stormtrooper, C-3PO, Han Solo, Boba Fett, and Darth Vader. They all include a stand. I’m going to go out on a limb and say the legs are fixed and unmovaible, much like the minifigure USB drive. Price is $10.39 if you pre-order. That’s one pricey pen….

And if the release date on those products is any indication, the official street date for Star Wars merchandise is February 29th, 2012. I imagine LEGO Star Wars will be released at the same time.

Thanks to CloneEmperor for the tip.

Comic Con Recap: Hallmark and LEGO Star Wars, Stormtrooper Ornament Revealed

Hallmark LEGO Darth Vader Ornament - 1

Revealed last week, Hallmark is entering the LEGO Star Wars market with a new ornament of a LEGO Darth Vader minifigure. The ornament goes on sale in October for $14.95. They had a few on display at the San Diego Comic Con which I was happy to take pictures of. The Dark Lord is a pretty good size for an ornament, much larger than an actual minifigure and around the same average size for their other figure ornaments. My only gripe is that the cape seems all too narrow. In some views, especially head on, it seems like he doesn’t even have one on. You just see a hint of it. I would have like to have seen a much larger sweeping cape, one that is immediately noticeable without having to purposefully look for it. Still, not bad for the first product out of the gate.

Hallmark will also be selling a series of party accessories based around LEGO Star Wars such as bags, cups, plates, etc.

But the biggest news is that they had a little sign showing a sneak peek what next year’s LEGO Star Wars ornament was going to be for 2012: Stormtrooper. LEGO hasn’t used the loudhailer and 1×1 round stud as a blaster for awhile now, so I’m not sure why they are using it for the ornament. Perhaps it was a licensing issue but I really wish they had sculpted in a blaster instead. It does give the figure a bit of nostalgia, though, for old timers like me.

Death Star Destroyed

Deathstar Destroyed

We’ve featured legoagogo‘s photography a time or two before, and he’s just put out another incredible composition of a subject most of us probably don’t think about too often: those poor, poor stormtroopers faithfully serving aboard the Death Star as it exploded.

The rippling tiles on the floor and the microscale spaceships in the background really make this scene for me.

Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker Clock

Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker Clock

I was browsing through some old photos and ran across this. This was taken at this year’s Toy Fair back in February. Apparently, there is or was supposed to be a Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker clock along with the Stormtrooper, Vader, Yoda, and Anakin clocks.
