I don't collect the sets myself (though there are a few I wouldn't mind) but my son loves them and is steadily growing his collection. Yesterday we found some time for him to set up some of his favourite scenes and for me to photo them for TIG's new section. He's looking forward to seeing them here Smile

That's a great collection you have there young man.  :clap: 
Unfortunately I sold most of my SW Lego due to a lack of space, but I did keep the Hoth sets & some of the larger vehicles. Seeing your models has inspired me to open my kits & get some pleasure building them with my daughter.  Wink

They all look awesome. I've never seen the Skiff set either. I like Lightning McQueen added in the scene. He'd save the day for sure.

All really well displayed & some thought has clearly gone in to the layouts, love Lego & SW but fear to get suckedin to the lego SW or I would be Mr empty wallet as I doubt I could help myself from buying a hell of a lot of them, they really are cool, well done young Jedi  :clap: 

Things have changed a bit since my time, lego was pretty much just bricks when I had mine, though it was used all the time.

I tried that with my Junior.  My wife went mental " I'm not having two freaks in the house that won't throw anything out!!!"

Lego & Star Wars were also my childhood favourites,  it's great to see the next generation continuing to enjoy them.  Smile

I really like your lego collection young man.

Absolutely AWESOME STUFF young brother, you have a real talent mate :clap: bow lego is super cool, and one of the best things about it is you can make it all your life, plenty of older guys get right into it.

I really enjoyed your pictures, love the jabba diorama, just great stuff, looking forward to seeing some more pictures of your latest creations, keep us updated, and dont be too shy to post in here, regardless of age you are one of the gang here mate.

cheers

Thanks from both Jnr and me for all the nice comments  cheers  he was well chuffed to read all that.

I do insist on keeping all the boxes and at first Mrs Detour was going mad, but now she can see the sense in saving packaging, besides she's outvoted 2 - 1 now  tongue Also nice that she helped Jnr build some of the sets.

He was really lucky to have family members put together to get him the sail barge and Jabba Palace for birthday and Christmas. Both sets have some great details and cool figures.

Me, I'd love an X-Wing to build and always liked the sets with the landspeeder in.

Cheers!

These sets are super cool. Great job to the young artist, and very nice to see his own touches added. Coincidence that lightning McQueen is about to get eaten by the Sarlac as Disney now owns both. Look forward to seeing some more.

Thanks again guys Smile

Detour Jnr got his hands on a AT-AT Walker (set 75054). Between him, me and Mrs Detour it took us 4 and half hours build time. It's a really good-looking and sturdy vehicle, complete with lots of articulation and includes 5 mini-figures.

My only grumble would be I wished they'd included some more play room in the body and cockpit - it's really small in there. But I'm just an old geek and must remember this is made for kids up yours Smile LOL.

Cheers Marco, kudos to the designers for making it so sturdy. I was convinced once built the thing would topple over and smash to bits. But underneath the armour the internal guts are a solid bit of engineering with lots of thought put into its balance and the articulated legs and neck parts all working on multiple moveable pins.

In fact, this part of the build reminded me of when I used to make the LEGO Technical kits back in the 80s cheers
