    So what would happen to LEGOland if the Gnomes went on strike? Do the Gnomes have a union? Do they have magic powers?
    Could I get a gnome to dust my LEGO sets? Man those things are a pain to keep clean! Must find a gnome, must find gnome

    My swoop sorta looks like that, although I would've loved to have it look like that. But, as I said, I was going on minimal parts!

    And, Birr, It is okay to have spare pieces, as they were intended for custom variants(look on the back of the box).

    If they went on strike, it would definitely be a gnomish disaster. The trees would grow taller than 5 inches, and the aphids would run rampant!

    Birr...that's about as long as we've been to class...but we're in the club thingie, too, so I think we're obligated to finish up someday. Oh well. Too bad the only way LEGOs can help you kick butt is if you make a LEGO crowbar to hit people with. :D

    I should really take a picture of my Swoop. It's way cool.

    I'm probably gonna get some more legos via Bricklink, for customizing, and to modify my swoop.

    Kev...Do it! I wanna see!

    I'm currently re-doing my TIE fighter hanging formation and trying to make it into a mobile-type thing. I'll get pics if I can get it to hold together right.

    The pictures are kinda fuzzy, due to a crappy digital camera, but here they are.

    It's pretty good. I like the red alot, but then I am a freak for red. Your version is pretty good!

    I like everything about it except (and don't take this personally) the front fins. The seem too large or something...I'm not sure what, but I do like your swoop on the whole.

    Good job Kev-Mas!

    The larger fins are for better manuverability and aerodynamics. It also stabilizes the light laser cannons hidden in the bar that holds the fins. :D

    Also, those laser cannons are starfighter scale. :D

    I couldn't find smaller fins, but I'll get them once I modify it with even many darker red wedges, including the engine like wedge for the back. I'm getting the parts from http://www.bricklink.com . I'm sure all of you know what that site is. ;)

    Wenchy -- you've gone mad! That's too many LEGOs all at once! The AT-AT's 5 hours of build time, and the Falcon's 3 or 4! You'll go insane! It's like handing an unsolvable geometric shape to the Borg Collective!

    Not to mention...where will you put all this?

    Oh, and happy birthday. :)

    The gnomes will get you! They will! They WILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!

    TK-4752: You underestimate the POWER of the Wench. Untill you've built the Star Destroyer, you can never know it. The AT-AT and the Falcon don't even compare in building time.

    Maybe you should wait and see if they are actually going to make the UCS Falcon first? Unless you'll want both. Then, uh, nevermind

    EDIT: This has nothing to do with SW LEGO, but my store has a preview of the RAHKSHI. We have the brown one, and maybe a few black ones left. If anyone is interested in the Bionicle line, and wants to be the first on thier block to have one.

    Naw. Unfortunately, I never got into Bionicle. It was a nice concept, and the Bohrak thingies were kinda cool (I have the white one), but...I dunno...Bionicle just never appealed to me.

    Besides, if I bought all kinds of Bionicle sets, I wouldn't be able to afford an AT-AT. ;)

    crazybirdman Of course I want both Falcons! :D

    I never got into Bionicle or Technic either. Technic a little more than Bionicle, but not much.

    COOOL!

    I just got back from another Kay-Bee raid. 6 more Droid Fighters, and 3 more Final Duel II sets. Not even $20 after tax...MWA HA HA! My Droid Fighters and FDII sets from the previous time are still in the box, too. I really have NO idea what I'm going to do with them yet.

    And here's the parts inventory from the 7130 Snowspeeder set - http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemInv.asp?S=7130-1. I've tracked down and ordered 90% of the parts for a couple Snowspeeders. Now I'm just left hunting for a few obscure parts like oddly shaped slopes and oddly colored plates. I can get 'em all, but most of the vendors at Bricklink have a minimum order, and when they really only have 2 parts you need, and they only total 8 cents, it's kinda annoying. Oh well...must keep trudging thru parts lists...

    What I MIGHT do is change a couple of the oddly-colored parts for a more "normal" color, and have my own particular squad color...cuz tracking down orange pieces is about as hard as shooting LEGO wamprats at 200 yards with a BB gun.

    :D

    SO I just tracked my Lego AT-AT through the UPS website and it's in town running around on a UPS truck somewhere!

    I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY!
