Since the prices for certain Lego Star Wars sets are borderlining silly (or way beyond that), I am quite happy doing my own interpretations of them. Like this one: a small, medium-range transport ship, which has been largely adapted by smugglers and such scum! I happily admit that I strayed quite away from the look of… Read More A Workhorse in Space
Since my childhood days I always had an affinity on darker things. My favourite Minifigure was wearing black, the Dragon Knights were so much cooler than the Lion Knights and when Blacktron invaded Lego Space, I was so excited by these guys and their black space-suits. They were just super-cool and super-menacing, even if I… Read More The Return of Blacktron! (Part 1)
While I was redecorating my Lego display (replacing the Star Wars scene I had for over a year with some ocean explorers), I took a closer look at the Dewback from the 2014 Cantina-set. It is really a splendid model which is sadly quite underused. And to be honest: what should the imperials do with such… Read More Sword (or Axe) and Sorcery!

This year started with a real flood of sets to the new film – and I wasn’t really impressed by most of them… Ironically the new Batwing looks actually pretty good, if it wasn’t so huge! I prefer the idea of it as a small and nimble plane, made for swooshing along streets,… Read More Batwing!
Is there a better Star Wars character to make an LED Keychain from as Yoda? I don’t think so. After all he is a centuries old Jedi master. Who else could give you some enlightenment! I got this little guy as a Christmas-present. Such a cute surprise! He lives happily in my handbag to assist… Read More Review: Yoda LED Keychain
