This is the way to buy special Lego pieces. This haul came from a $10 pick-your-own-pieces box at the Lego store. The trick is to avoid the common bricks and go for the rare.

The big prize here is the 55 2x1 smooth purple pieces. I was amazed it was even possible. I had to pull them individually from a mixed bin on the Lego wall.

So excited about this haul. Total surprise too. I was at Sur La Table for a cooking class and Lego store was next door.

My daughter is gonna squee for the purple pieces. Sooooo rare

Redesigned and rebuilt First Order Transporter. Improved accuracy to source material, less waste / more efficiency, bigger engines, better flap coverage, better color harmony, red elements added to interior for more First Order coloration pattern like TIE Fighters (my touch)

Pretend you dont know what these stickers are "supposed" to be (if you do). What do these stickers represent? What Lego pieces would you place these stickers on?

Fallout 3 was a great game. It is hard to see through the looking glass, because New Vegas was so good, but it was a great game.

I felt like I was truly in a WASTELAND, much more so than New Vegas or Fallout 4.

Damn, the leg design in this set BLOWS. It is almost completely rigid, with only the ability to vertically traverse the top section (to turn the face of the AT-ST upward and aim at high targets).

You know what it isn't designed for? Walking

Ironic, no?

I am only building this thing to learn their techniques for building the main cabin, then I am deconstructing this piece of shit forever. At least the pieces in the set are highly useful for other projects (which is why I bought it in the first place).

Goddamn it is hard making this AT-ST in black.... I just don't have the small wing-like pieces that I do in grey.... argh.....

Preliminary First Order leg structure is done

Just bought $250 worth of Legos with a Target gift card that I got from points on my credit card, so it felt like "found money."

2 copies of Carbon Freezing Chamber
2 copies of AT-ST
2 copies of Eclipse fighter
1 copy of Clone Turbo tank

Mostly bought for unique/useful bricks to build other things, rather than the actual designs themselves. The Minifigs are excellent as well.

Dis gonna be good. Happy New Year indeed. Delivery by Friday. Nice

I really like the First Order TIE variants in Episode VII. Disney really kicked ass with that.

So I think my next Lego project will be a First Order AT-ST variant. Black and red coloration, for starters. Other ideas for upgrades from the Imperial version?
