LEGO Star Wars Trench Run Automata + Lighting Build!

This week’s LEGO build takes the newly released Star Wars Death Star Trench Run set and converts it into a piece of automata by remixing it with the LEGO Pursuit of Flight set. The result is a miniature scene with Vader’s TIE Fighter in animated pursuit of Luke’s X-Wing, against a backdrop of LEGO greeblie paneling. We also add LED lights to the diorama and the finished piece looks amazing!

Let’s Build: Japanese Steamed Bun Shop Kit!

This cozy miniature representation of a Japanese steamed bun shop and apartment is our first exposure to CaDA bricks. The LEGO-alternative bricks company works with MoC designers like ExeSandbox and JK Brickworks to produce sets of their original designs, and we get a feel for how these bricks and the building experience compares with the LEGO sets we’re so used to assembling. It’s a delightful set, and the included warm LED light strip makes it extra cozy!
