Happy Star Wars Day everyone!
In the Toybuzz household we’ve been building up to Star Wars day for the last few weeks by watching all the movies each Sunday, culminating with Return of the Jedi tonight. Popcorn is ready and were good to go.
To celebrate the day we were sent a lovely Star Wars Lego Microfighters set, and issued a bloggers challenge of picturing our fighter in a new world, discovering a new planet.
We received a Snowspeeder, and Jacob set about building it straight away.
I absolutely love the Microfighters range as the sets are small enough for him to build in one go without getting frustrated, but your still left with an awesome sized vehicle to get hours of play out of afterwards.
We’ve previously purchased the Vulture Droid and Homing Spider Droid, so the Snowspeeder fitted into his collection perfectly, and once again the build engaged him without stressing him out, which is perfect.
Now our Snowspeeder is all built, he’s ready to fly off and find a new planet. Apparently he’s sick of the snow now and is looking for somewhere lush and mountainous.
First stop on his adventure and he seems to have stumbled onto some psychedelic craters. There seems to be debris from previous crashed spaceships here as well, so he flies off again sharpish before he gets trapped too.
But then oh no! He flies straight into an asteroid field. He’s gonna need some seriously skilful flying to get out of this one.
Luckily he survived the asteroids, but watch out it’s a trap! He ends up getting himself tangled in some cargo nets, and he doesn’t look too happy about it.
Finally he’s made it, we’ve found the mountains. Well done plucky Snowspeeder pilot.
As you can see we had loads of fun with our new Lego Microfighters set.
May the fourth be with you everyone.
