I finally got around to finishing up the time lapse video. Side note: there seems to be an ever so slight zoom shift on either the focus or the metering, so the picture may start to stutter in a way. I’ll have to try manual focus next time. The exposure seemed pretty even though so I think I figured out the metering issue I had with my other video. Also, I need to figure out a better angle. Anyways, there were a total of 11,117 photos shot at 1 frame/second, compressed down to about 3 minutes of video. Our sample sets didn’t come with book 3, so this was shot over two different days once we finally got the last set of instruction.

LEGO was kind enough to send me a copy of this set to do an early review on. I took this as an opportunity to do a time lapse video showing the build process. Anyways, look for our full review this coming Monday. 10227 B-wing Starfighter will be available at LEGO Shop@Home starting October 1.
Update: Due to a gross, gross, GROSS typographical error, I had to reupload the video.
Designer Con came and went this past weekend. It was a great show as it is every year with some of the most diverse art under one roof. I was part of the Studs group that had a large booth presence that featured OneLug‘s Last March of the Ents, Brandon Griffith‘s Star Wars Chess Set Trilogy, FBTB‘s LEGO Star Wars mural, and host of other MOCs by Tommy Williamson, Guy Himber, Remi and Alyse Gagne, Matt Armstrong, Gary McIntire, Ryan Wood and Bruce Lowell.
One of the highlights of our booth was a speed build of 10221 Super Star Destroyer. I shot a time lapse video of the build at 1 frame per second and stitched it all together in the video above. This was the first known attempt at a speed build for this set. We set the world record at 1 hour, 31 minutes, and 38 seconds. The table we were building on was not ideal. So we had to borrow some space from another table, that’s why the main build of the ship disappears off camera for a few minutes. In hindsight, the main build should have been on the side of the table closest to the camera for a better view of the progress. Oh well. There’s always next year.
I took a handful of shots of other merchandise at the show, choosing to focus on Star Wars themed items. But now that I think of it, I should have taken more photos of other products. It’s really a great show, centered around the artist and the art they create. I highly suggest making an effort to go next year. We’ll be there again for sure.
