it’s a little hard to tell what’s going on here? the force awakens a feeling in the stormtroopers for bunnies? ah well, all shall be revealed soon.
odin looooooves legos so when a veeeeery generous relative ( possibly too generous 🙂 gave him a death star for his birthday he was, unsurprisingly, quite a happy boy. it says if for ages 14 and up but odin has advanced lego skills and put together the 3,803 pieces in marathon sessions over a few days.
we wondered if it could be cause for conflict or jealousy amongst his friends who might covet such an extravagance. nope. friends come over and play for hours and discuss and that aspect fo the model and how faithful a replica it is to the death star in the star wars movies.
he’s even voluntarily loaned it out so friends who don’t have it can enjoy it from the comfort of their own homes, which is an excellent example of odin’s kindness and generosity.
i’m pretty sure when i was nine i wouldn’t have loaned it out to my friends and i’d probably have taunted them for not having it.
like a lot of kids his age odin loves lego and while he hasn’t seen the star wars movies, he somehow seems to know a lot about them and really likes the millennium falcon, so he was super excited to have gotten the lego ship as a gift for christmas from his grandparents.
while it isn’t the 5,000 piece star wars ultimate collector’s millennium falcon ( which can be had for $3,000! ), it’s still a large 1,500 piece set and i thought it would take him a few days to put it together.
as usual, i underestimated him. it took about 4 hours 🙂
in honor of putting together the grand ship, we decided to right a wrong and watched episode IV: a new hope so, you know, he could see the inside of the ship in the movie ( he loved the movie ).
