They are still miniatures and it's still sci-fi ... but of a different kind. After a morning appointment at a local mall, I came across a mini-exhibition on Star Wars Lego miniatures. They looked rather cool so I snapped a few pictures for the blog. I am more of a Star Trek fan but Star Wars still holds a special place in my heart. Star Wars was the first sci-fi I ever saw as a kid together with those old black-and-white Flash Gordon TV series (Yes, I am that old). Reading Issac Asimov's Foundation books strengthened my love for sci-fi (as Lord of the Rings did for fantasy) and Star Trek sealed it. GW's Warhammer 40K is the icing on me sci-fi cake.
I actually snapped a lot more pictures than is displayed in this blog entry. But being the geeky nerd that I am, I probably messed up some of the photo-taking cause they were not saved on my mobile phone camera's memory card. Oh well ... to the pictures that did make it from warp.
Battle for Hoth
These, I thought, were the best of the miniatures on display. I am bit bias here as Empire Strikes Back was IMHO the best Star Wars movie ever made.
A scene synonymous with Lord Vader's signature theme. If look carefully, you can see that one of the imperial guards has fallen flat on his face.
Battle for Endor
Ewoks ... the less said the better.
Home of a young Skywalker.
Why Lucas why ... did you have to spoil the romanticism of Star Wars with CGI !!!
That's all folks! Hope you enjoyed the pictures.
