Coming Soon: Buckbeak!!!!

Okay, so… obviously I’m excited. But even for people who are not Potterheads, you have to admit that the feathered models that Metal Earth and Piececool have released are generally some of the more gorgeous ones.

Build: Droid Pack Threepio

As promised, I did finish building the C-3PO from the Disney Parks exclusive Droid Pack.
