San Diego Comic-Con Day One: Star Wars Legos, Ewok Attack!

GeekMom Toys
Lego bricks anyone?

Yesterday was my first full day at San Diego Comic-Con and it was fantastic! There were so many things to see that I found myself wandering from booth to booth, panel to panel, with absolutely no plan. I thought I’d try to at least walk the floor in some kind of order so that I’d know what I’d seen and what I had to investigate another day, but no, I jumped from booth to booth like a cat chasing a laser dot on the wall.

One booth that was a ridiculous amount of fun was from Lego. They had a giant pile of yellow bricks, and I desperately wanted to swim in it, but there were all these kids and I figured Lego probably would not appreciate my enthusiasm. In addition to the swimming pool that I couldn’t use (but did play with for a bit) their store was selling a handful of early-release Star Wars Lego sets.

 

 

 

There was a Republic Frigate, Anakin’s Podracer and then I found this little gem which was my favorite of the whole bunch. That’s right, it’s called Ewok Attack! I added the exclamation point but I have to say I think there should be one on the box. As a long time fan of the cute but deadly Ewoks, this was the first thing at the con that I really had trouble not buying on sight. You’ve got happy little Ewoks minding their own furry business. Along come the evil Imperials, but fear not! These guys will defeat them with logs and sling-shots and rocks. You’ve just got to love the Ewoks. No, really, you do or they will leave you broken on the forest floor.

Lego Smith Nightspeeder

 

 

If you happen to be an Imperial and the Ewoks aren’t your favorites, then what about this Sith Nightspeeder? I think it’s important to note that, speeder or not, the Ewoks could still take you out with a well-placed bit of handmade rope.  I know, these aren’t just Imperials, they’re Sith, but the Ewoks are not to be underestimated. Snazzy vehicles pose no challenge.  None!

Lego Millenium Falcon

 

 

On the other hand, if you’re Rebel Scum, then you can have the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs. Yes, build your very own Millenium Falcon so you can help the Ewoks and shoot down any Sith that may escape their deadly grasp. Yes, Han and the Ewoks had a rocky start, but in the end he came to love them, too. No one can withstand their cuteness.

These great new Lego sets, along with Darth Maul’s Infiltrator, Podracers and a Republic Frigate are only available at San Diego Comic-Con for now, but you’ll see them in stores this August. Now, I’m off to the con again, and if no one’s looking I’m going to dive into that pile of yellow Legos.  Think anyone will notice?
