San Diego Comic-Con Day One: Star Wars Legos, Ewok Attack!
One booth that was a ridiculous amount of fun was from Lego. They had a giant pile of yellow bricks, and I desperately wanted to swim in it, but there were all these kids and I figured Lego probably would not appreciate my enthusiasm. In addition to the swimming pool that I couldn't use (but did play with for a bit) their store was selling a handful of early-release Star Wars Lego sets.
There was a Republic Frigate, Anakin's Podracer and then I found this little gem which was my favorite of the whole bunch. That's right, it's called Ewok Attack! I added the exclamation point but I have to say I think there should be one on the box. As a long time fan of the cute but deadly Ewoks, this was the first thing at the con that I really had trouble not buying on sight. You've got happy little Ewoks minding their own furry business. Along come the evil Imperials, but fear not! These guys will defeat them with logs and sling-shots and rocks. You've just got to love the Ewoks. No, really, you do or they will leave you broken on the forest floor.
These great new Lego sets, along with Darth Maul's Infiltrator, Podracers and a Republic Frigate are only available at San Diego Comic-Con for now, but you'll see them in stores this August. Now, I'm off to the con again, and if no one's looking I'm going to dive into that pile of yellow Legos. Think anyone will notice?
