I’ve just learned the much anticipated  UCS R2-D2 has been revealed on YouTube too early.
The video is now set on ‘private’. But for those, like me who couldn’t wait, Brickfanatics have added a low quality version of  the video in their own channel just in case Lego decide to pull it as they indeed did.

This build is 31 com high and 18 wide and has amazing details.
2D is set to be released in may, but the pricing is yet to be announced.
This set is very beautiful and surely one of the best official Star Wars sets.
But unfortunately I don’t think it will fit within my collections.
I’d have to think about it, because, hey, it’s R2!

Check out the video with the designers:

As mentioned a few months back, Lego announced it’s new Superhero theme.
While in the meantime, Lego already released the DC heroes sets in the US, the marvel hero sets were shrouded in mystery.

February the 12th, published an article with official promotional pictures of the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Avengers sets after some photo’s surfaced from the UK toy fair and the Lego Toy Fair.

While nothing official yet, Brickset already put new images of the upcoming LEGO Marvel Super Heroes sets online.

I’ve been following Blockaderunner and his fantastic photo’s of Lego models for some time now.
This time he amazed me with a astonishing Lego MOC of the Rebel Nebulon-B frigate as seen at the end of The Empire Strikes back. Not only that, he also captured it perfectly on photo.

As far as I can see, it’s in the same scale at the Millenium Falcon from the 7958 Star Wars Advent Calendar
These photo’s would inspire me to leave Lego mini-size behind me and go all out fot micro-size.
The Nebulon-B frigate is one of my favorite Star Wars starships. I am amazed how Blockaderunner packed this ship so full with details at this scale. Very nicely done, very nicely done indeed!

The first  Lego board game 3866 Battle Of Hoth just arrived.
I am a sucker for board games and have tried a few Lego one with lots of fun. So when I saw this Star Wars game at the shelves I couldn’t wait to get me one. Just look at this cute little microfigs. Unfortunately my patience will be tested. I’ll get this one at a later date. First up are some new 12″ figures from Hot Toys coming up.
Just for your information:
I’ve found the dutch version, “Star Wars De Slag om Hoth” at ToysXL, Bart SMit and Intertoys for € 36,99 and at Tanstoys for € 25,75

We’ve been waiting for it and there has been rumors.
But now it’s official!
