LEGO A-Wing Starfighter

Last week I had a really shit day, so I decided a little LEGO Retail Therapy was required to cheer me up. The result was the purchase of my latest Star Wars LEGO set. The A-Wing Starfighter.

Battle the Imperial Fleet with the super-agile A-Wing Starfighter™!
Bring the battle to the evil Empire with the Rebel Alliance’s super-fast A-wing Starfighter! As featured in Star Wars™: Episode VI Return of the Jedi™, the agile A-wing, with an opening cockpit, is perfect for attacking the Imperial Fleet! Build the same lightning-fast ship that destroyed Darth Vader’s Executor! Then, take on the Imperial forces with Admiral Ackbar, an A-wing pilot and Han Solo! source LEGO Wiki

The best thing about this set would have to be the Admiral Akbar mini-fig. He looks so boss with his cup! Like he’s about to kick back & drink the night away.

I guess the poor bloke needs to enjoy life before the next attack on the Death Star. IT’S A TRAP!

The A-Wing Starfighter comes with 3 Mini-Figs: Admiral Ackbar, Han Solo A-Wing Pilot.

Star Wars LEGO – The New Obsession

It all started just before Christmas when Stef asked me what I wanted. Without hesitation, I responded “LEGO”! And so it began, a new obsession.

My current collection is small, however it is still pretty damn awesome! I mean, it’s Star Wars! How can it not be awesome?!

The collection started with this from Stef at Christmas. Stef also got me a Jedi Night Bath Robe, Light Sabre Torch, Millennium Falcon Bottle Opener, Light Sabre Key-Chain Torch & Chewbacca Slippers

Ewok Attack – The Ewok treetop hideout features a stone launcher, log trap, secret compartment, and retractable ladder. The set also contains 3 Mini Figures:  Imperial Scout Trooper complete with Scout Speeder, Logray & Ewok Warrior.

My Brother also got two Star Wars LEGO sets for Christmas.

Geonosian Cannon – The Geonosian Cannon is loaded with dual click missiles. In addition to the cannon, this set includes three weapons and a lightsaber to aid in the attack. There are four Minifigures in this set: Barriss Offee, Clone Commander Gree, Geonosian Warrior, and a Geonosian Zombie.

New eye-catching helmet designs for the ARC and ARF Troopers, while the Commander Droids are differently colored (copper) than the Commander Troopers and also feature a new, moulded head piece.
