Custom LEGO SWTOR Blackbolt

You know how we love bringing you cool Star Wars and SWTOR related stuff. And if you’ve followed my posts here over the past few years, you also know that I am a big LEGO fan. So we are very happy to bring you this cool story of a custom LEGO SWTOR Blackbolt. The builder/creator had this to say about it on Reddit: “A couple firsts for me here: first reddit post, first lego set I bought since childhood (Fury Interceptor), and first custom lego build. The ship and its landing platform are entirely built from the Fury set and there were many leftover pieces.” I wonder how long it took to build this? The images in the gallery below give a good guideline of the process of how it was done. I love to see creative projects like this where people take their LEGO sets and make something original…

SWTOR: XS Freighter LDD (with detailed Interior)

As part of the LEGO MOC Showcase at fbtb.net, a user shared some great images of their build of a Star Wars: The Old Republic – XS Freighter: “Hello! I recently finished my SWTOR XS Freighter in LDD and wanted to share it. While I’ve seen cleaner builds (exterior-wise) I feel a sense of accomplishment with this for including a pretty accurate, detailed interior to the ship.” See the full post and images here. There is a lot of great detail, no small parts gone unnoticed and there are even size/scale comparisons. The creator, November2019, says they have been working on the project off and on for a few months. “There were some frustrating hurdles. It was my first time doing something of this complexity in LDD. Figuring out ‘non-standard’, oblique-angle building techniques was really a mind-bender for me. Very fun though.” We think it looks pretty awesome. I can see…

LEGO Darth Revan Free on May 4th

There is a pretty sweet deal on the official Shop LEGO site in honor of May the Fourth. If you place an order for $75 or more on Star Wars items, you get a LEGO Darth Revan mini figurine for free. This special deal is happening at the LEGO online shop until 11:59 PM EST on May 5. See it here when you Shop LEGO. How does it work? It’s pretty simple actually. All you need to do is add enough Star Wars items to your cart to total $75 or more and then it will automatically show up in your cart as a bonus for you. If you are ordering from another country, you will just need to be sure the dollar exchange amount equals out to $75 US before it will be added to your cart. I really like this deal because it combines two of my favorite things-…

Building the LEGO Death Star

This amazing death star has over 26 minifigures, three floors, and a whole lot of rooms! I really love how much detail went into this thing. The minifigures are well done and finally Lego gives us enough minifigures to really enjoy the set. It has everything from the meeting room to the emperor’s throne room and the detention cell to the trash compactor. Really, really, really, really, really great set! You get all the classic characters, even a few versions of the important ones. The trash compactor is just all right, but most of the other moving parts have the impressive marks of Lego ingenuity. I also love that it takes a long time to build. That helps a little in terms of coming to grips with the fact that you just dropped $400 on a big toy. The fact that it’s 90% gray can get a little tedious. The…

New LEGO Star Wars Game Free Download but Compatibility Issues

I was super excited when my son (yes, my 6 year old) told me about LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles and when I looked it up to find out it was free in the Play store, I was excited. The LEGO Group has released more than a dozen Android titles already but their first tie-in game is LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles. This might give us our Star Wars fix with a break from Angry Birds. I was all about it!

Daily life on Hoth, illustrated with Lego

One thing I love more than anything is bringing you cool Star Wars and SWTOR stuff. I also love Legos. Here I found an opportunity to merge both. Vesa Lehtimäki creates some amazing scenes with Legos and his “Daily life on Hoth” series is fantabulous! (I also love to make up my own words). He has a super awesome snow effect, brilliant scenes and fun stories to go along with most of the images. He also has many more images on his Flickr in locations other than Hoth but the snowy scenes are some of my favorite. It’s truly magical. Check out Lego on Hoth on Flickr for the full collection but here are some of my faves: Lego Snowtrooper Probe Droid Maintenance Squad “I’m telling you, it will blow!” “Nahh, it’ll be just fine.” Call of the Wild Snowtrooper Ski Patrol They filled their days with long cross-country ski trips…
