LEGO Star Wars UCS Snowspeeder (75144)

Here is the next LEGO Star Wars UCS model. It seems to have a lot more details and 300 more pieces than its predecessor the Rebel Snowspeeder (10129). Also it comes with two exclusive minifigures supposedly Rebel Snowspeeder Pilot and Rebel Snowspeeder Gunner, although – and correct me if I’m wrong – judging by the helmet designs they are Zev Senesca (Rogue 2) and Nala Hetsime (Rogue 7), so two pilots and no gunner.

US $199.99, CA $229.99, DE 199.99€, UK £169.99
VIP early access from the 29th of April.

Star Wars worlds : Hoth 
From space, the planet of Hoth looked like a pale blue orb due to its dense snow and ice covering. The temperature, although always frigid, was known to drop to -60°C come nightfall. It notably hosted Echo Base, the temporary headquarters of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, until the Galactic Empire located the Rebels, initiating a major confrontation known as the Battle of Hoth.

my very sophisticated thoughts on rogue one

so yeah obviously this is spoilery so i’ll put everything under the cut

and yeah no i lied this isn’t sophisticated at all it’s just me fangirling and screaming, mostly about darth vader

ok here we go

  • so i just watched tesb the other day and i realized that during the battle on hoth, luke was rogue leader and then it goes rogue two, three, and so on. And why is this? because there was ALREADY A ROGUE ONE
  • when you realize that prolly luke and co and rey, poe and finn will look up to the crew of rogue one
  • esp finn- like, bohdi defected from the empire!! and became a hero!!!
  • ahh everything was just so gorgeous: places, planets, ships, music, plot, people (esp that one rebel dude who looked so Flawless™ in that too -short shot as rogue 1 was landing on scarif)
  • THE CAMEOS!!!! oh my gosh yeah I had been spoiled by tumblr about bail and leia and mon mothma but R2!!! 3PO!!! and seeing tarkin was cool too i guess
  • AND FREAKING DARTH VADER
  • oh man, just…
  • gah he was amazing and so morbid it was great
  • like srsly dude ur gonna build your personal castle and spa overlooking the VERY LOCATION WHERE YOU BELIEVE YOU KILLED YOUR WIFE
  • and the bacta tank was nice
  • and doNT GET ME STARTED ON HIS LAST SCENE
  • hoo boy lemme tell you
  • i never was scared of darth vader but i sure am now
  • the way he just *clenches fist* *two rebels get choked and thrown on two others as vader casually stabs two guys through the door*
  • just beautiful
  • ok i need to stop now or else i’ll spend too much time talking about my trash king son and no one wants that (except for me who am i kidding)
  • all right so
  • the main characters were pretty cool too
  • i kinda lowkey ship rebelcaptain and highkey ship everyone with LIFE
  • like WHAT THE HECKJ *incoherent yelling*
  • YOU COULDNT EVEN LET THE FRIGGIN DROID LIVE
  • *sigh* at least darth vader doesnt die…yet…
  • also krennic was pretty rad. i didn’t think he was all that bad. i mean yeah he kills people and blows up planets… actually ok yeah hes pretty bad now that i think of it. but i wouldnt turn down having a nice tea with him bc frankly there are a lot of other characters out there that havent killed or anything but i would be terrified to be near *cough* heathcliff *cough*
  • confession time: when i saw the trailers for rogue 1 i was like ‘wow i cant believe they’re trying to make another 3PO happen‘. but im so glad i was wrong bc k2 is the best. his sarcasm gives me life
  • hey did anyone else notice that when jyn and co were in the hangar on yavin iv someone was calling over the intercom thingy for general syndulla… i mean, i dont watch swrebels but i do know about the characters and isnt that hera’s last name? i heard that the Ghost and chopper were there too but i didn’t see them
  • if any sherlock fans are out there reading this did you guys see that guy who plays anderson?? he was on the council i think and it was so hilarious bc he was acting just like anderson XD he was a riot
  • kinda wish there were more ladies but who am i to complain: we got SO.MUCH.DIVERSITY.
  • i wouldve liked more diversity of accents but idk maybe most of them had british accents for reasons only star wars knows (i especially enjoyed hearing the scottish and aussie ones)
  • ok literally chirrut is my fav. everyone else can go home now
  • (except ani of course. u can stay bby)
  • ugh his sass and little smiles and his badassery was just great
  • his staff-fighting skills are WICKED
  • “are you kidding me??? im BLIND“ just priceless
  • and his praying all the time?? like, that was what got me set on loving him (im religious too)
  • ok wow this is a lot maybe i’ll write more another day but for right now i’ll stop
  • did i mention darth vader tho
  • also i laughed when he said ‘dont choke on your aspirations’ bc that is so anakin to make a pun like that but then i was sad because that is anakin
  • ugh im sad now bye
