Lord Helmet

I watched Spaceballs a few weeks ago and thought my technic vader helmet would be perfect for a Lord Helmet build. The helmet wound up working perfectly and the size of the bust build was determined entirely around the size of the glasses and helmet.

I believe Spaceballs is available both on Amazon Prime and Netflix right now, so if you have an account with either I would suggest you check it out while it's available!

Brick Breaker Dragonfly

While pulling a bunch of builds apart it occurred to me that my orange brick breaker resembled the body of a dragonfly.

Taking this photo was a huge pain. Unfortunately there was a slight breeze and a light Lego build with wing span + slight breeze = disaster.

The build kept blowing off the bird bath, but after much persistence and resets I eventually got the photo.

AT-AT MicroFighter

In my whole collection I only have 2 Star Wars sets. An AT-AT and a Tie Interceptor.

Of my two sets LEGO has already released a Tie Interceptor MicroFighter so that left me with 1 option: AT-AT microfighter.

Like my large scale At-AT the head on the MicroFighter does move left to right.

I tried to make the AT-AT a little smaller, but the pilot can only sit in the back at the current scale.
