News: Pictures of Summer 2007 Star Wars Minifigs

German LEGO blog The Brick Time has noticed photos I’d missed of the new minifigs in the summer 2007 LEGO Star Wars sets.

I’m rather excited about the Naboo pilot and redesigned Anakin Skywalker minifigs in 7660 Naboo Starfighter:

 

But I’m very excited by Kit Fisto in 7661 Jedi Starfighter:

LEGO at SXSW

I love music. I love LEGO. For at least the last couple of years, the “Interactive Playpen” at the SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas has featured LEGO.

Here’s a cool shot from last year by Flickr user alykat:

And the Flickr new user icon, built and photographed by naelyn:

The festival this year started yesterday and runs through Sunday. So far, the interactive playpen has yielded the Digg logo, as photographed by narisa:

If you’re in Austin this week, be sure to check out some great music, and stop by the Interactive Playpen and build something cool!

Izzo’s Flight & Encounter!

Here is the fifth and sixth installments of Izzo’s sweet Drakkhen series.

Flight has a little bit of a different twist to it. It shows one large minifig scale dragon flying over a microscale landscape, as well as two microscale dragons. The perspective shots are incredible!

Encounter takes place in the open sea. I really like the splash and crash of the waves. The sea serpent also has a cool windblown look.

Check out the whole series here.
