Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to EB News Presents, be sure to look at our new series, EB News reviews. Today Our guest is Lord Thrawn, I am Stauder your host, and our heckling is provided by ImperialShadows.

Staudie: Welcome to EB News Reviews.
Staudie: Uhh.. EB news Presents... 3 seconds in and he's already lost.
Lord T: Hello!
Staudie: So, Lord Thawn, why the name?
Lord T: Well back when the original TIE fighter set came out and before Darth Vader's minifig was available
Lord T: outside the TIE X1 and Y Wing set, I was without a Sith to lead my stormtrooper and scouties.
Lord T: So, I took the name Thrawn from the Grand Admiral in various Star Wars media and stuck Lord infront..
Lord T: and in my young foolishness it sounded cool. I guess it just stuck.
Uh... the first TIE, the TIE Advanced, came with Vader, and the next original TIE came after that... :wacko:
Staudie: So you are Lord Thrawn from the Plane of eternal peril?
Lord T: I guess so!
Staudie: And not Lord Thawn from the land of de-frosted stuff. Your whole act is on ice...
Lord T: Not quite, I think you missed an R somewhere.
Staudie: The first was a accident, the second was on purpose. get it Thaw, as in unfreeze
Staudie: *Param-pish*
Lord T: I'm too hot for Hoth.
Staudie: Keep your shirt on, Ok next question...
Lord T: *bregrudgingly dresses*
Staudie: What got you lovin' the brick?
Lord T: Ever since the age of two I've had a LEGO thanks to my cousin who grew out of the hobby just at the
Lord T: right time. I actually got LEGO before Duplo, which never really featured in my life for better or
Lord T: worse. I loved being able to build planes in particular with my dad and this sentiment was cemented

Staudie: Yeah... I also started with normal bricks...
Lord T: when the Star Wars line launched. I had periods where I would put it down before that but since I
Lord T: got that little Qui Gon vs Maul set I never left it alone.
Lord T: Sorry I'm prattling on.

Staudie: No, continue
Staudie: this is good stuff. Yeah. Thrilling. *yawns*
Lord T: I'm done now :)
Staudie: Ok, what is your favourite theme? I rarley see much of you on the forums, you have a BS I can look at?
Lord T: I tend to focus on space now because of my previous focus on Star Wars, particularly on themes
Lord T: from movies and games I'm currently interested in; for example I've built the Flying Mule from
Lord T: Serenity lately and I had a go at Fenrir, Cloud Strife's bike from Final Fantasy VII: Advent
Lord T: Children
Lord T: I do have quite a large castle unphotographed and sitting under my bed though and a few sub-par
Lord T: Bionicle MOCs on a shelf collecting dust that I doubt anyone will ever see.

Staudie: Ahh yes, the flying mule, I belive I remember that MOC...
Lord T: You'd be better off checking out my Flickr for LEGO updates than Brickshelf
Lord T: I find its much more user friendly

Staudie: Yeah me too.
Staudie: Most EB news pictures are hosted there... On a secret account so people cant see upcoming pics. Good thing you told them that. Now they'll never figure it out.
Lord T: Also builds up a community from across the spectrum from all the sites.
Lord T: This is a pretty hard question since it has been a while since I've spent alot on LEGO.
Lord T: I have to say the first System AT-AT is a masterpiece as long as its protected from small animals

Staudie: Hehe... I hate small animals. I have a statue dedicated to my hatred of all things small and furry.
Lord T: and my clumsy friends. So that would be my #1.
Lord T: I hope the statue is built from LEGO :p

Staudie: Yes. but the small furry creatures are represented by megabloks. Is that your excuse?
Lord T: Of course. ;)
Lord T: My number 2 I guess would be Boba Fett's Slave one from 2006 which is the natural progression from
Lord T: both the other Slave 1s I loved in the past.

Staudie: Go on...
30 Jul 08, 22:25
Staudie: I am going to guess you are thinking...
30 Jul 08, 22:27
Lord T: I think my third favourite is probably the Creator Big Rig just because of the variety of parts and
Lord T: the sheer value of it all.
Lord T: And its almost to scale with the Cool Cars sports car which pleases me.
Lord T: Strange choices I know but I tend to go for midrange due to financial stresses of being a geeky teen

Staudie: As some dilbert comic said about a unfunded project "Here we will teach you to take a sponge bath
Staudie: using a wet wipe"
Lord T: You needed to be taught? ;p He needs someone to hold his hand...
Staudie: Moving on, what moment in lego history brought you most joy?
Lord T: LEGO History? I'm thinking 2004-1005 was when LEGO really turned it around from the mediocrity of
Lord T: the early 2ks and brought out some better value sets. But as I already mentioned, the one thing
Lord T: about the hobby *cough* I mean lifestyle that grabbed me by the balls was the Star Wars license.
Lord T: It has such an impact that it got me into the Star Wars films! I'll bet there's not many for who it
Lord T: went that way around,

Staudie: And your moment of glory on EB?
Lord T: Definitely when JoeMI6 and I hosted the popular Create a Hero minifig contest back when the Batman
Lord T: sets just launched. I was blown away by how well it was taken.
Lord T: We got some great entries and it was inspirational for us as newbies in the LEGO online world
Lord T: to get so much input in our first contest venture
Lord T: remembering it all makes me want to get back into the action of contests...

Staudie: I belive I looked at that... I never found the entery topic tough...
Lord T: Oh damn, thats always a source of annoyance.
Staudie: Ok, next question. How do you think TLC is doing this year, especialy the SW theme and the new
Staudie: troopers. I shudder to think that they could clone you one day... A whole army of stumbling Staudies, trying to take over the world.
Lord T :Given my current financial... lack of finance I have to say the summer's sets are too expensive for
Lord T: me to consider them
Lord T: but I think LEGO has got a winner on their hands with the adorable little Rebels and the Clone Wars
Lord T: styled Clone Troopers particularly because of the modular helmet attachments. The Clone Wars style
Lord T: (apart from the ugly faces which I'm still not used to) translate very well to LEGO.

Staudie : Amen to that.
Lord T:  I do find myself disappointed by the Rogue Shadow and upcoming Twilight however just because they
Lord T: look too much like something I'd build with leftovers and I don't know if its due to the designs,
Lord T: the LEGO designers or a combination of both.

Staudie: I must agree with that...
Staudie: What sets would you see TLC make?
Lord T:Well I'm always open to new Jedi figures and we're sorely lacking a good source of Mace Windu lately
Lord T: so that Chancelor's Arrest from the TRU online poll would take my fancy for starters.

Staudie: Mace Windu battle Pack ™ Includes Happy Windu, Sad Windu, Angry Windu, Falling out of a
Staudie: ****ing sky scraper windu.
Lord T: Outside of Star Wars I'd love the elf theme to be made reality in Castle (and I think the chances
Lord T: are high). Pirates was something I missed in my dark ages and the 'news' that it will be back makes
Lord T: me very happy.

Staudie : Next Question,  do you have any pictures of you Liar/HQ/cubicle you'd like to show us?
Lord T: I'm afraid not . They were some of my early pictures on Flickr and I'm not pro so they vanished.
Lord T: But they were old and boring anyway.
Speaking of Staudie...
Staudie: Awww...
Staudie: Im runnin out of material here... What is your opinion on EB News?
Lord T: I think EB news is a good way of getting to know the members more intimately (in the cleanest
Lord T: possible sense).
Lord T: As a whole LEGO fans get alot of news about upcoming sets and events but really there's not alot
Lord T: going on about the communities themselves. It really does set EB apart from some of the other

Lord T: forums I visit.
Staudie: By EB News I meant us, not the fronpage...
Lord T: I know...
Lord T: I think we have a misunderstanding on our hands here.

Staudie: We dont actually do news... We just interview people who are too slow to run away... Well
Staudie: WhiteFang is going to start EB News Reviews soon...
Lord T: Its refreshing to learn about the people more deeply in contrast to the usual set news.
Lord T: I lookforward to that.

Staudie: Can I marry the speach sythax of your brain...
Staudie: ...
Staudie: I think he ran away... I think he's laughing too hard...
Lord T: I could arange come kind of accident for his current wife...
Staudie: Wife? On the other hand let's move on...
Lord T: why not
Staudie: Am I annoying?
Lord T: Not at all, well, maybe just a little bit. You've put me completely at ease here though
Lord T: I'd say friendly instead of annoying.

Staudie: Who should we interview next?
Lord T: I think my friend JoeMI6 might be a good candidate but I'm biased since he's my best mate in real
Lord T: life too.

Lord T: He's been building a bit more lately also so he might have something deep and meaningful to say there.
Staudie: Now, Do you have a pic of your Sigfig?
Lord T: by chance I do
Staudie: :D
Lord T: http://www.brickshel...vatar/lordt.png pre-whack
Lord T: http://www.brickshel...tar/whacked.png post whack

Staudie: Crud.. I do not have him...
Staudie: Well, no comic... Ah well.
Lord T: Dern...
Staudie: Anything you'd like to tell EB?
Lord T: I'd like to say thanks for putting up with the likes of me for all this time and
Lord T: I look forward to seeing what the ever evolving face of EB brings in future. So many great builders
Lord T: have come from the site I look forward to many more in the future.

Staudie: Thanks For your time Lord Thrawn! This was EB News Presents, now GET THE **** OUT OF MY CUBICLE! Ohhh, that's original...


So there you have it folks... Whatever it is.

*Signal Fades*

Also, I'd like to say what a great idea this is Stauder and Imperial Shadows. Although we often hear what's on people's minds on the forums, it's quite interesting to see what really makes people tick. Keep up the great work?
