Review of LEGO® Imperial Assault Hovertank, Set 75152

The Imperial Assault Hovertank is the smallest and least expensive of the LEGO® Star Wars: Rogue One Sets released in 2016.  Boasting 385 pieces including 3 minifigures for $29.99 (US), is the set worth buying?  Here are my thoughts.

Review of LEGO® Rebel U-Wing Fighter, Set 75155

Star Wars Rogue One LEGO Rebel U-Wing Fighter, Set 75155 /// We add new Star Wars fun on our blog every week! /// #starwars #rogueone #lego #minifig #uwing #review #starwarslego /// maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

I am thrilled to announce that over the next few weeks, LEGO® “Master Builder” Peter Guenther will be back with new reviews!  This time he is armed with the LEGO® Rogue One sets.  The floor is all yours Peter…

I suppose it’s not too surprising that the 2016 LEGO® lineup for Rogue One only includes one Rebel set  (versus four Imperial sets): it’s the story of a plucky band of insurgents against a galactic Empire, after all.  Initial photos of the set including the box art left me cold; I found it unattractive and boxy and wasn’t sure it was an acceptable value, especially at $79.99(US) for 659 pieces.  Out of the box, though, this set really surprised me; built, it’s bigger than I expected and has great detailing.

I am still processing the movie… so more on that in a different post.   Instead, today we are thrilled to share M4P guest writer and LEGO® “Master Builder” Peter Guenther‘s review of the ship whose appearance in The Force Awakens made me squeal with joy.  Take it away Peter…

The Force Awakens, LEGO®  has released a new version of the Millennium Falcon, set 75105.  Weighing in at an impressive 1329 pieces (plus a few extras, just in case), six minifigures plus a droid, and a price tag of $149.99, is this set worth the investment?

Sorry, I was so Sluggish in Posting! (Space Slug Gift Wrapping)

Space Slug Gift Wrapping and Paper Crafts /// Check out our blog for lots of Star Wars Party crafts and ideas /// #starwars #starwarsparty #maythefourthbewithyou #starwarsbirthday #spaceslug #papercraft maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

M4P friend Gene Ha will tell you this gift wrap is NOT a space slug, it is a lobster claw… 

Of course he has a compelling argument…  He bought the Admiral Ackbar bobble-head that was inside for me (yeah!!!), AND he created the wrapping.  And as all of Gene’s fans know, Gene has a somewhat warped sense of humor, so a lobster claw wrapping makes perfect sense to him.  Calamarian… Red gourmet seafood… Lobster.

Fortunately, we made a Bib! (DIY Bib Fortuna Bib)

DIY Bib Fortuna Bib. Check out all our other Star Wars clothing, and costumes on our blog! #bibfortuna #starwars #starwarsparty #maythefourthbewithyou #starwarsbirthday #starwarscostume #halloweencostume #cosplay #bib #lego #legominifig maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

There are bad guys, and there are scary, snarly, nightmare inducing guys.  Bib Fortuna always gave me the creeps more than any other character….  I think even more than Darth Maul. 

This creates an interesting dilemma when making children’s clothing…  On the one hand there is the opportunity to use a pun like Bib,  on the other hand you don’t want to scar your young child for life.

(and yes, in case you are wondering, we are not quite done with the candy yet.  …so 1 last post about Bib… See Monday’s post)
