I finally had some time away from house work and preparing for the baby to put up some of my stuff.


The Lego mosaic my wife got me for Christmas one year.  The entire piece is made up of 1x1 studs.  Very time consuming to put together.

Part 1 of Unleashed


Part 2 of Unleashed


Applause figural mugs, BK glasses and Pez dispensers


Misc stuff

More to come

Nice collection!  Your Unleased section is impressive.  I love the R2 bumper sticker, that's cool!   ;D

Nice setup!

That Bantha has got to be one of the best creatures ever done.   8)

It's amazing to look and see how the figures' sculpt have progressed from POTF2 to today.  Quite the contrast between the various Tuskens!

Mikey D,

Thanks for sharing, it must have been a blast putting it all up and taking shots for us here. 

So what is the scoop on the framed Lego Star Wars???

Unleashed, one of the few lines that I started but am considering selling as I know I will never be able to track down an unmasked Vader, Fett, etc. without using my house as collateral.

Great collection pics Mikey.  Its always fun seeing everyone's different collections, and I really like the way yours is all set up.  Seeing Kubrick collections is killer for me, I really should have started in from the beginning and attempted to keep up :).  Great pics though, thanks for sharing.

Basically if you send Lego a picture, they will design it and convert into 1x1 studs.  The pic my wife sent to them is the small Star Wars at the bottom of the frame.  Lego turns around and sends you the pieces and instructions (each color is given a number and the instruction sheet is nothing but numbers.  Like I said, very time consuming to put together).  My wife bought the frame and made the cutouts on the black foamcore.  She's artsy like that.   The pic doesn't do it justice, it looks much better in person.

Unleashed, one of the few lines that I started but am considering selling as I know I will never be able to track down an unmasked Vader, Fett, etc. without using my house as collateral.

I've been lucky with the Unleashed line, finding everything at retail and only missing the Stormtrooper (and the new wave that hasn't hit yet).  One of my favorite lines.

I had no idea Lego did custom stuff like that.  That this looks awesome, what are the demensions and if I may ask what is the ballpark price that Lego will charge for something that size?

I have no idea on the size off hand, but the frame is for a standard poster.  You should be able to get a general idea from there.

As for the cost, it was a Xmas gift so I really don't know.  I want to say it's $60 a piece.  This one is made up of two pieces - the ST and WA on the left and the AR and RS on the right.  Each piece is price seperately.  So the whole thing would have $120 plus the frame, foamcore, etc.  Not cheap by any means, but not too bad for a unique item.

I posted this over in the Sideshow section but figured I'd update here as well.

IKEA Detolfs (painted black) flanking the TV.  Anakin's and Luke's FX lightsabers on top.
