Well, she’s done

…and it took longer than 12 parsecs! Estimate around 16hrs total to put it together. Displayed on a custom Perspex stand which I hope with all my being holds 😬 The set comes with two radars, one installed here from the original films and a second rectangular radar from the later films. Also a 1900’s Leia and Han minifigs as well as a 2000’s-era Leia and Han. No OG Luke in this set though. Seems like an oversight given the scale (and price) for this set.

Blob-head Leia!

Here is Princess Leia, from the Lego set 10198 Tantive IV which I recently purchased second-hand for $150 (including shipping). You remember the ship, right? It’s the first ship that appears in the original trilogy of Star Wars, the small white being chased by an enormous Imperial Star Destroyer. If you can’t remember, here’s a 40-second refresher. Anyway… everything was cool with the set, until I noticed Leia’s hair. Leia’s hair is smooth, like melting chocolate. Pretty cool, huh? … No?
