LEGO Super Star Destroyer!!!
I have a problem. I am obsessed with things made of plastic, painstakingly assembled from an immeasurable quantity of tiny molded pieces. Why these objects hold such sway over me, I cannot say, but they may as well be my religion.
The good news is that I am not alone. The goodly bandits at LEGO Corporation and their erstwhile cronies at Bandai know of my malady and provide me with an endless supply of model kits to buy and build. They take my money (all of it!) but in return they provide me with the one thing that I cannot live without. They are latter-day Robin Hoods.
However, this time LEGO went too far. They teamed up with George "Wallet-Wrecker" Lucas to create the ultimate plastic model: a Super Star Destroyer! When I discovered the existence of this monstrosity, my vocabulary was temporarily reduced to that of Nien Nunb, Lando's Sullustan copilot during the Battle of Endor; I think my eyes looked like his, too.
So, yeah, I bought it. The first day it was available. 2nd-day shipping (overnight was way too expensive!) Jorge and I setup a time-lapse camera to catch the whole build process, because I figured you'd enjoy watching it come together just as much as I enjoyed building it! So here it is.
May the Force be with you. Mostly.
Special thanks to Jorge, BSlug, and Dunkz for helping me put this video together. And to Stone Brewery for making delicious beer.
What I'm playing: Divinity 2: The Dragon Knight Saga. Need something to tide you over until Skyrim gets here? Look no further. Great game.
What I'm listening to: Revocation. Really good metal. Tastes like pennies.
Keep up on what's happening at the J!NX Stronghold when we can tear ourselves away from a game long enough to blog about it. Updated Fridays.
