I took advantage of the snow to satisfy my inner 7 year old.
Yes, my motto is that when life gives you lemons, you recreate Star Wars scenes using LEGOs.
This is of course a recreation of the trench run seen in Star Wars Episode 7, The Force Awakens.
Admittedly a lot of the shots I took are awful because A). this X-wing is hard to hold, B). my hand is in a lot of the pics I took and C). the few shots I didn't take with my hand in it didn't capture the full beauty of this X-Wing.
Unfortunately I can't do the Battle of Hoth because I have ZERO play sets from the battle. No Rebel Hoth base. No AT-ATs. Not even Luke Skywalker and his snow speeder.
But that doesn't matter because the battle of Starkiller base with the X-Wings is just as good.
Speaking of which. The LEGO Star Wars Poe's X-Wing Fighter (Set #75102) is one of the funnest builds I've had in a good while. It's the first set in over a decade that took me over an hour to complete. Also, the details on Poe's helmet are simply sublime.
I would complain that the set is a tad overpriced (aprox $80 retail), but honestly who cares? It leaves me with less money to waste on baseball cards (that I can't buy anyway until July). And it's one cool set (no pun intended)!
Remember, snow isn't all bad. It gives us a chance to play with our toys in unique ways.
As always thanks for stopping by and take are :).
