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.

This model star destroyer is proving to be WAY more effort than it’s worth. I’m increasingly convinced the designers actually intended it to be built in Zero G.

Fitting a rocket housing—with great difficulty— and something deep inside the existing assembly went CHUNK, opening a wide gap along the length of the “keel”. It won’t squeeze back together.

GAH!!!!!!!

Not on that scale, but my son had the Ghost from Rebels.

That was a nightmare as bits constantly kept falling off.
