Star Wars Lego Creations
For those of you that know me and my son you’ll know this: both of us love Star Wars and Legos. Combining the two just sends us into unmitigated joy and giddiness.
A while back, Ethan built two small ships that he’s been playing with in the bath. I’ve been meaning to take pictures of them, because I happen to think they’re very cool. These are entirely his creations, no kits or instructions. He figured out what he wanted to build, then built it. The first ship is a Republic Venator Class Cruiser:
It even has it’s own landing… err… thingy. The ship fits in there perfectly:
The next is a Separatist frigate with landing thingy and docking clamps and all that:
The last, and most impressive in my mind, is General Grievous’ Malevolence. I suggested a few days ago that he should try and build one, but he said he had had trouble coming up with a way to do the Ion cannons… Next day, he had come up with a way, and here it is:
This is all three of them together to give a sense of scale:
He built them completely from scratch and with no references other than what he had in his head. He also made a lego Tic-Tac-Toe board today using 3 3 stud pieces with the holes in them and some of those lego pins, and we played a few games on it!
His Lego creativity really does amaze me sometimes!
