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.

The star destroyer has proven almost impossible to assemble in planetary gravity, so I have decided to display the unfinished version in front of my drawing board as an interesting "sculpture".

C'est la vie!

A teachable moment for JJ Abrams.

JB, you need to hire an 8-year-old. When it comes to LEGO, they have powers beyond us mere mortals.

True dat.

My son has now built so much Lego, he barely seems to look @ the
instructions, while I’m still stuck in the ‘what’s the orientation of this
image?’ Phase.

Nendoroid Batman 1989



Nendoroid Joker 1989



Looks like the Joker is the only one getting different facial expression options...
