LEGO Blacktron II Inspired UCS Slave One

The LEGO Star Wars UCS Slave I (75060) has inspired many color swaps of the ship from Jango Fett to the White Prototype Boba Fett. One build that I came across on Reddit by Alg3braic is a LEGO Blacktron II inspired Slave One and I was drawn to it because I’m very partial to the Blacktron theme from the late 80s to the early 90s.

The build uses mostly the design of the official UCS Slave I but there’s also some customization to it especially the canopy area which took some ingenuity to implement the Blacktron canopy piece. Check out more images of the set in the link above.

LEGO Star Wars Detention Block Rescue Building Instructions

Star Wars Celebration 2017 LEGO Star Wars Detention Block Rescue

Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 is now over and for those who were able to get the exclusive LEGO Star Wars Detention Block Rescue, they are some lucky individuals. Fans have been waiting patiently for the instructions to come out and it looks like BrickFinder was able to find someone who posted them.

The full building instructions have been generously uploaded to Google Drive which you can download a copy and it looks like there are no exclusive parts to the set so if you have all the parts, you can easily build your own sans the limited edition box. If you prefer to have the whole thing, eBay is the way to go and the price for it has been slowly dropping and you can get for less than $200 now. It’s not chump change but for collectors, it’s another thing to pick up.


The LEGO Batman Movie The Mini Batwing (30542) Found at Target

A reader has emailed me that they have found The LEGO Batman Movie The Mini Batwing (30542) polybag at Target stores. The polybag was originally a LEGO Store and [email protected] promotion with purchases of $35 or more back in December-January but it looks like Target will now start carrying it as well. I wasn’t told where it was found but I’m assuming it is in the checkout aisles or somewhere near the LEGO section of the store. If you didn’t get a chance to pick it up a few months ago, here’s your second chance. Thanks to Joseph for the heads up.
