May The 4th Be With You

Yep! May 4th is Star Wars day - and it's also my 700th post! Any excuse to get some LEGO out and May 4th is traditionally very popular with your LEGO Star Wars fans, so we've had a little play with one of the new Series 2 Microfighters - set 75073 the Vulture Droid, and some of our Series 1 sets.

LEGO asked us if we could find a new world for our Microfighters, somewhere unfamiliar and alien to our Star Wars minifigures. It wasn't hard to think of a few new environments, lets face it, they didn't ever go to Earth in Star Wars (because it took place in a galaxy far, far away of course) so we were on to a winner...First stop as directed by my 5 year old - outside!!

Star Wars Microfighter 75032: X-Wing Fighter and Luke

This might look like the moment Luke landed on Dagobah, but in fact it's 3 feet up in a tree - or a beanstalk. There's clearly a giant...

Remember Luke, "do, or do not. There is no try".

The April meeting of the Empire 5-a-side Football Club was a complete wash out....

Ermm..."I come in pease"? Thankfully no Tauntaun in sight...

In the end the most surreal and bizarre place we could imagine a misguided Star Wars Microfighter landing is Springfield....

But I'm sure it wouldn't be long before they fit right in...

LEGO Star Wars Microfighters are excellent - we've bought them as gifts many times because they're priced around £8.99 and all of our little boy's friends have been absolutely delighted with them. The recommended age is 6+, although I always think that's a little high, and the finished models are pretty solid and can be treated as a toy. They look great and they're lovely little vehicle and figure sets that 3 of my boys have bought, built and played with, and displayed on the shelf at the end of their bed.

We were sent our Series 2 set 75073 the Vulture Droid in return for writing this post...

LEGO Simpsons Series 2 Millhouse Fallout Boy

The more observant among you may have noticed we do now have an actual Millhouse 'Fallout Boy'. Paper Millhouse has been recycled and order has been restored...


  1. I love your Lego life :) Hubby would love to live in your house - Lego & Star Wars = his dream x

    1. Awww - you'll have to visit if ever you're up this way. It's not really all LEGO alas :D And I totally see the dream thing - I'm pretty sure if I told my OH that I wanted a LEGO Star Wars themed bedroom he'd be delighted!
