LEGO Stars Wars sick day

My daughter is home sick today. This LEGO Star Wars Vader's TIE Advanced vs. A-Wing Starfighter kit is where her attention is focused.

Vader's TIE Advanced is very cool, but the real joy of this set, for me anyways, is the Sabine Wren minifig. Mandalorian Sabine is one of my favorite non-C1-10P characters from Rebels.

We bought the LEGO Star Wars Rebels 'The Phantom' for the included minifigs

Star Wars Rebels mid-season trailer connects to Force Awakens

Star Wars Rebels second season has been a roller coaster! This mid-season trailer promises that the second half will be even more packed with must-see lore and heartbreaking resolutions than the first!

The second half of the season, which returns on Wednesday, January 20th, will re-introduce old friends, take us to an ancient Jedi temple, and reveal an oddly familiar lightsaber with cross-guard! Fan-favorite Ashoka seems destined to facedown her old master, and we hear anguish in his voice. While Ezra's force-abilities develop, Yoda can not help but meddle, but Darth Maul may be edging in on his business!

...and I particularly enjoyed hearing her royal highness explain why she fights. Read the rest
