Suddenly have an urge to add a storm trooper to Central Perk—with maybe a couple of droids loitering outside! ;)

Gunther doesn’t serve their kind.

Hasbro will do the black and white FF costumes. In blue, of course.

Is it even worth a sigh, anymore?

Building the STAR WARS Star Destroyer from Lego, and finding one tiny part bears a remarkable resemblance to Thor’s hammer. Too much, I’d say, to be accidental!

It probably is Thor’s hammer

My son builds a lot of Lego - he has some major Star Wars ones like
Slave 1, Sandcrawler, Angry Birds sets, Mario sets & smaller stuff like
Mixles.

The strangest parts get reused - & I never cease to be amazed @ the
complexity of the internal structures & mechanisms. Some of which you
see replicated whole scale.

••

This I have noticed! Building the star destroyer, for instance, I see a lot of "cheating" as standard Lego parts are used in different combinations to create the argle-bargle on the outside of the ship.

It's adding a layer of respect for the designers, realizing they are presented with scenarios each time that resemble the challenge with Apollo XIII, when the NASA technicians had to create a new air filter using only what was on the two ships.

"Create a huge star destroyer model--but use these parts!"

Yep, 'greebles' have really filled in the details on a lot of the larger LEGO sets.
