The Dead of Night.

A patrol mission on the Hoth highland deserts does tricks to your mind. You can drift into very vivid dreams during nights on a long shift. AT-ST cabin fever, as the phenomenon is known amongst the ranks.

This was the weirdest of all the dreams TK 24/7 ever had. On the night after he made all those pumpkins, he slept restlessly. He had these strange dreams of dancing skeletons and fiery snow lanterns. At one point TK-24/7 dreamt something very cold passed underneath his bed, colder than the deadly nocturnal Hoth blizzard. Spine chilling, as if he was sleeping on a grave...

I think this is as odd as this project gets. I mean, I took Halloween, a few pumpkins I made, my favourite environment and some Lego and decided to just go for it and see what happens. It didn't need to make much sense, it was just a simple idea to challenge myself to figure out what to do with these elements. Just something Halloweenish and snowy.

It drifted a bit far from Hoth but, well, we'll see.

Happy Halloween with dancing Lego skeletons in a blizzard. Because why not? :)

All Hallows' Hoth.

In the howling deadly blizzard, sleeping in the safety of his trusty AT-ST walker, TK-24/7 had the strangest dream...

The thing with the carved snow lanterns got out of hand just a little. One after another TK-24/7 made more, until there was nine. The AT-ST had only nine emergency torches to light them so there was no point making more.

TK-24/7 was pretty happy with what he'd accomplished, he climbed back inside the walker for some hot cocoa.

On a sidenote; it’s snowing outside right now, first snow of the winter. I have always liked that very much.

Inspiration in the Cold.

As it happened, TK-24/7 was so happy with his work with the snowy scary lantern that he decided to make some more. He figured he had time for at least three before the temperatures in the howling Hoth storm forced him to go inside the cabin of his AT-ST walker.

TK-24/7 wasn't afraid of the cold but enough is enough. Besides, the AT-ST was very cozy.

Little known fact: Carving a face on a vegetable to make a lantern is an ancient tradition practised throughout the galaxy.

TK-24/7 was a master at carving, he was a very handy trooper, he did not pass an opportunity to carve even when on duty on a planet with little or no vegetation suitable for the job. Snow is just as good a substitute as any when the time for a good traditional lantern is at hand. Regardless of a deadly blizzard.

Happy Halloween!

The Derelict.

Little known fact: the snowtroopers were keen to repair exotic propulsion systems occasionally found in the frozen wastelands, such as the trustworthy Koensayr R200 Ion Jet engines from a derelict Y-wing fighter. Although the Empire was wealthy, they did not say no to recycled enemy technology.

Here are all my Lego Star Wars spaceship posters so far.

I left one out, there is a newer version in it's stead. The Slave 1 was my first poster ship, it was the old smaller model and the poster is stylistically a bit different. It's also hilariously wrong because I positioned the ship upside down. I didn't think of that at all at the time. The new one is different from the series too, I guess, it's the only one with Japanese typo. But it fits in alright.

There'll be more some day, I should think. There are great models I haven't used yet, some of which I already have. Some day.

Several years ago I made posters of my Star Wars spaceships. It's been a while since I last made these but today I added a new one to the series.

The TIE Striker is easily my favourite Star Wars spaceship design outside the original trilogy. It works really well in Lego too, the model is pretty as a peach. It's amazing how these just keep giving.

Perils of Fun.

TK-24/7 was an expert on the long AT-ST patrol tours on the planet Hoth. He could do them over and over. It was great actually, he liked the tours because it was when he could read books on duty.

Although an expert and a bookworm, even TK-24/7 had to step out of the small cabin of the walker every once and a while to flex his muscles. Building something with snow was his favourite.
