    Should LEGO Star Wars take a break?

    The local shops here are heavily discounting Star Wars merch..I got Boba, Han and Chewie 3.75 inch figs for 70% less than list price. Funko Pops can be had for 50% off..but S.W. Lego is still bucking this trend, I hope we get some Clone War sets and if the Mandalorian does well, then maybe another set or two from that that would be good!..finally ,I find it interesting that the kids turning up for this trunk or treat event ,were all representative of the original 1977 onwards trilogy (even K2-S0`s time-line falls just before A New Hope )

    Should LEGO Star Wars take a break?

    Totally agree ,so glad they are away from Star Wars, but I`ve tried putting my own (negative) feelings about current Star Wars to one side , instead I am looking forward to the upcoming Clone Wars and hoping this will be a good ending to a great T.V. show (even better than Rebels, which I loved ). I love the diversity of vehicle types and even the variety of the different clone units..6 out of my last 7 S.W. Lego purchases have been either prequal or Clone Wars sets...including reeling in some 2nd hand ones , that I missed first time around.

    AT-RT Assault walker

    Did some changes to 72561..went for the 104th Wolfpack colours and did some wee changes to legs and body..found the six stud launcher and tacked it on..it still balances o.k...(I suppose in real life that it would be made out of some super light space age alloy!)..I did have normal weapons fit unit made up ,to make it look more like a traditional AT_RT, but the multi-launcher just looks so bad-a$$, that I went with that.

    [Star Trek] Christopher Pike in wheelchair

    Great idea..but I am sure Chris Pike was sporting a beard. Regards Kenny Apologies...pike was scarred badly: not bearded...so your build is spot on....ahhhh I hate getting old...I was five when the menagerie two parter came out!!!

    [LDD] Jurassic World Vehicles MOCs

    Elrond, the Merc 6 wheeler and the Unimog are so instantly recognisable, I love these concepts....; here we see you out-doing Lego`s in house designers and coming up with some great vehicles and your designs have a simplicity and shaping that just works so well! Regards Kenny
  8. Thanks Bardan, I got this canopy with the Bat-Wing set and when I tore that down it ended up on my Bat-boat (for a while)...it`s a part that can be used for any vehicle ,from boats to jets to fast car builds and I wish I had more of them! regards Kenny IMG_2532 by kenny burns, on Flickr

    [MOC] Dark Knight

    What a brilliant build..you even incorporated the taller , more sinister looking ears ,which some D.C artists like Marc Silvestri sometimes drew.....again this is great and I wish I had it on my shelf!! Regards Kenny
  11. I just finished building the 80th anniversary Batmobile and it is a brilliant build for the money (£24.99).The thing has some real weight and bulk to it, I spaced out the rear wheels, to try and make it look less slab sided (it`s only real weakness) and I ditched the 2 printed engine intake tiles at the front and did new side intakes (which cancelled out the stud-shooters)..I am sorry the pictures aren't great but I only finished the build shortly before I head to work...any how this is a brilliant , nostalgic blend of Batmobiles from the past ..I love it!

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors & discussion

    Just got The new Batmobile set from Asda ,here in West Lothian , Scotland on my way home from work...they seem to have most of the new H.P/Batman sets in stock, a nearby Entertainer chain shop doesn`t have any for sale.

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors & discussion

    Asda have the new sets as well...I bought and quite like the Knight Bus..except for the lack of printed parts for the bus itself..all the destination boards and the radiator really should have been printed, I think Lego have cheapened out on this, by going for stickers.

    Tyrrell P34 1:5

    This is an insanely inspired model...incredible work..I remember Jody Scheckter driving the real thing back in 1976..(he incidentally is now the owner of a firm in England that makes buffalo mozzarella cheese!) Again I have to say that this is a mind-blowing build.. the back tyres really are a stroke of genius! Regards Kenny.

    [MOC] Bud Spencer & Terence Hill with Puma dune buggy

    Nice trip down memory lane ,I remember the "Trinity" westerns and "My Name is Nobody" (with Henry Fonda)...these two guys were fun..thanks for the build!
