Build: K-2SO (Piececool)

Build: K-2SO (Piececool)

Oh. My. Word. The matte finish really, really works on this model. Also, this model is awesome! And solid, thanks to all the cylinders. It’s great to have a giant version of my second favorite droid, and it looks great! I think the larger size of this model makes it a lot easier to get […]

Build: D-O

Build: D-O

One of my favorite things about the architects of the Star Wars universe is how amazingly expressive they manage to make the droids, even though they limit them to very static sets of movements.

I was able […]

I remember being quite pleased with Big Ben, but then later being confused about if I built it correctly, as some product photos I’ve seen show the clocks as being outset, rather than inset into the model. As for Pilot […]
