Like so many kids growing up, the original Star Wars trilogy were some of my favourite movies. I must have watched each of them dozens of times on my VCR. Along with the movies came the amazing video games like the X-Wing and TIE Fighter flight simulators, as well as the Dark Forces series. Throw in the comics and novels and there was little else that felt so immersive as the Star Wars universe.
Toys were my other great love. From Transformers, G.I. Joe, StarCom, to X-Men action figures. Toys were a wonderful escape into the impossible world of my imagination. LEGO was a particularly interesting toy for me because I could create entirely new buildings or ships from scratch. I was particularly fond of my custom LEGO space ship inspired by the space station from the Babylon 5 series.
LEGO Star Wars brings together two childhood memories and I’m excited to share my reviews, thoughts, and news related to it with everyone.
