  Lego + Star Wars = Internet Geek Heaven

There are a lot of Star Wars geeks on the internet. There are a lot of Lego geeks. And of course, there is the overlap: Star Wars Lego geeks. It's as if the two largest rivers in the world (the Amazon & the Nile) met in the same estuary.

So me and my son are watching Revenge of the Sith on DVD. The opening has some very cool star ships with a big red stripe down the middle. When I'm putting him to bed, he's dreaming of ripping his Imperial Star Destroyer lego model apart and building a new model like the ships in the movie.

So I do a quick search, and learn that they are called "Venator-class Star Destroyers". Appending "Lego" on to that search, you find some impressive models.

But I think I'll let my son work on his model without showing him the pix of these expertly built Lego Venator-class Star Destroyers. If I did, he'd probably lose motivation. Reminds me of a great Simpsons quote:

   Bart:  You make me sick, Homer.  You're the one who told me I could do
          anything if I just put my mind to it!
   Homer: Well, now that you're a little bit older, I can tell you that's
          a crock!  No matter how good you are at something, there's always
          about a million people better than you.
   Bart:  Gotcha.  Can't win, don't try.

We wouldn't want that...
