Try posting a lego starship with star war elements. I have 5 of those made atm, although I have enough for 20 starships.

ps, I have lsw 2, It was fun, but when i finished all the levels, its not as fun. Its also glitchy. All I have to collect before I finish the whole game is 2 minikits and 2 power bricks. A secret in the game- When you collect all the minikits, you unlock boba fett's slave 1. I also know what you get when you get all 99 gold bricks.

the cockpit, engines, and wing panels were all from airplane/starfighter kits. I used one of those thingys that let you change the angle to tip the wings down. If you want I'll post some close ups and exploded views.

I think, you should try and make your own Light saber - its a good starting project for any star wars fan!

I can understand how the swords could be made from very powerful lasers, but how do you make them so that one prevents the other from passing through it? ;-)

I was being a little faceceous there, meaning if they were 'light sabers' how were they to be used for defense, since light passes through light ;-)

I think the "scientific" argument is that light sabers use a dense plasma, not laser beams, and that some "shaped electromagnetic field" is used to contain the plasma in a narrow cylindrical region. As with all "scientific" descriptions of movie or TV SF, this is all just arm-waving :-)

Humph. I tried just her last name and also got no matches. Tried a known author's name, and got all the results I expected (and a lot more). given that, I'd take her stuff with a bit of a grain of salt.

Thanks much...I found this enlightening piece by Krauss that is VERY much how I feel on some of a matter which we have discussed elsewhere.
Namely, Dawkins' dropping the ball by switching his priorities from
removing ignorance (teaching) to attempts at destroying faith.

The PDF is here...for those that would like to read it...

I have sent him the link, in case he didn't get a chance to see it earlier. He agrees with me that, from the time he wrote Climbing Mount Improbable (which he is now reading ;-) to The God Delusion, something happened to change him from science teacher to "fringe evangelistic atheism".

Indeed.

Currently on page 188 of Climbing Mount Improbable, I find it a much better argument for evolution than Delusion, for all that it is eleven or twelve years old.

You wrote, "I find it a much better argument for evolution than Delusion, for all that it is eleven or twelve years old." Age cannot wither, nor custom stale, the basic arguments.

Most (likely all) of them were made by Darwin himself in The Origin.

There is a MindStorms R2D2 kit, but it's more impressionistic than accurate.

Yes, indeed! I've seen it on display at LegoLand (the one in California, not yours near Windsor), and you can buy the kit.

I think Skunkbait was posing the much more challenging problem of building it from scratch :-)

Why not? I had tons of grey legos back in the day. Of course we had very few themed "kits" back then. I think we had an "ambulance service" kit, and a generic "spaceman" kit. You youngsters are SOOO lucky!
