David: What advice do you have for Star Wars fans going in with all that expectation and all that hype? Going in to the movie theater in December 2015? Any advice?

Sam: Good luck.

Finally have my SHIP done and off my bucket list. It was a big love hate relationship getting this completed. My intention from the beginning was to build a ship that had a hanger bay with mechs in it. I’ve seen a lot of ships built over the years with hanger bays in them but it looked to me like frequently the hanger bay was an after thought and what goes in the hanger even more so. So I started with my smallest pieces and built up from there. Built mechs big enough to house a minifig, then built a hanger big enough to house 3 mechs, then built a ship big enough to house the hanger (which by the way increased in size 3 different times till i finally was satisfied with its proportions). This ended up being a lot bigger than i initially envisioned. It is 6 feet long, but i’ll include several specs below. Any ways i’m so glad this labor of love is done. I owe a big thanks to my wife and family for allowing me to spend way to much time on this project. Length: 225 Studs (6 feet) Height: 75 bricks (28 inches) Width: 50 studs (15.5 inches) Piece Count: Over 30,000 Pieces Build Time: 250+ Hours

There’s a legion of fans out there who care very very deeply about this stuff. And they’re not shy about talking about what they don’t like. So you know that you’re going in front of the firing line. [x]

OK TUMBLR TIME TO ENLIGHTEN YOU ON THE AMAZINGNESS OF A SHOW I LOVED

The Upside Down Show is a show that basically nobody has heard of

It was created by the Comedian duo The Umbilical Brothers, (Shane Dundas and David Collins) They Also starred as the shows leads. 

Now it is an Australian Nick Jr. Show that only ran for one season before being canceled,and before you go NICK JR EW NO THATS FOR KIDS, let me explain you a thing. 

They are professional ventriloquists, mimes and and human body sound effect makers. They are super dupers talented. They use these techniques to make the show, NO PROPS. BUT now to the actual show

Its basically about them in a house with like 5 doors that take them to a billion places, and they do random crap. ALL They have a sock puppet friend, a random deep voiced Narrator, a pet fly fido, and a neighbor who’s actress plays everyone that isn’t them. YOU are part of the show (like blues clues) with your special remote control.

Its the most random stuff ever, nothing makes sense, but it is lovingly Hilariously PERFECT.

I was up at 3 AM watching this show and me and my Best friend laughed our asses off until my parents got annoyed. Its THAT RANDOM. If you need proof I found a good youtube clip from one episode

Now that you have only one example of humor. here is a list of every single episode on youtube (ONLY 11 OF THEM *sobs*)

Now go, go on, enjoy this silly little perfect creation

Until recently, everything we knew about Ahsoka’s childhood was limited to a couple of lines of dialogue and a flashback scene. But during the Ahsoka’s Untold Tales panel at Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016, we learnt that Dave Filoni (Supervising Director of The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels) had worked on a fable of sorts that would have explored Ahsoka’s early years and shown how the Jedi came to find her.
