Some of you spotted this Ninjago District block in my last update about the project. It has been built for several months but I have not had time to edit a video for it until now. This is the Virtual Gaming Arcade, which is a very popular attraction in Blockville. Let’s take a look at the outside of each section before going inside for more details.
Some supplies clearly need transporting in the Star Wars universe, and this handy box is just right for the job. There’s even room to clip your spanner and blaster while you’re carrying it.
I’m a big fan of little things – and this Microscale igloo is a charming build from the 24-in-1 set today.
I see that Star Wars has brought us a First Order Stormtrooper today. He’s just a little bit different from the existing ones I have with changes around the mask area the most evident. It’s always nice to see some variants, so I’m happy enough.
24-in-1 is back on the avian theme again, this time a bird of unspecified pedigree, although it looks rather like an owl to me. I like the blue wings though.
I must confess that I haven’t really been keeping up with the whole Star Wars canon, and haven’t see any of the more recent films yet. I loved the original trilogy, however, so I really should put that right. It does mean that I’ve no idea who/what a lot of these little models are supposed to be, so I’m having to rely on internet sources for my info on that score. That doesn’t however stop my enjoyment of them – apparently this is a First Order Transporter, which looks rather bulky but I guess these things are conceived to be functional rather than pretty, so that’s fine by me. Looking at a previous minifig-scale LEGO version (First Order Transporter 75103), this one looks pretty accurate given its diminutive size!
Meanwhile in 24-in-1 Land, we are back to the pastoral themes with this delightful little sleeping ladybird. Very cute!
Well it looks like this stubble-chinned Resistance Officer from Star Wars could well be handy with weapons – he has a big gun of his own today, and perhaps he knows how to use the tripod-mounted monster from yesterday too? I’m glad he’s with the rebels!
The 24-in-1 set provides us with a much more tranquil scene in the form of this rather sturdy windmill. I like the little bits of landscaping around it too, which makes this more interesting.
Inevitably, Star Wars will degenerate into big guns at some point, and it didn’t take long. Here’s a rather menacing looking tripod-mounted gun. Hope it falls into Rebel hands and not into the Empire’s arsenal! I like the modified round-sided plates for the tripod’s legs – not a piece I’ve personally seen before.
The winter theme is alluded to with the 24-in-1 set today, with this nice snazzy bright red snowmobile – perfect for getting around in the winter weather!
