Perhaps I can find new ways to motivate them…

The Death Star is almost cleared to fire. Work continues, though every time I come downstairs, the labor force is fooling around. And I have proof!

I’m pretty sure bets were being placed on whether Cap or Batman could knock the other out.

Though poor Han ended up being late to the brawl.

Speaking of brawls, I think Palps finally got the drop on Obi-Wan.

The only ones working were the stormtroopers…but even they weren’t totally immune.

Leave it to Master Chief to protect the project from rampant diagonas while everyone else screwed around…

With all this goofing off, I’m not sure WHEN the space station will be completed!

“We shall double our efforts…”

The Death Star continues apace. The second tier is complete and the groundwork for the third tier is being laid.

I’m pretty sure the stormtroopers are tired of hearing a.) how they can’t hit the broad side of a barn, and b.) how much better Stark’s armor is than theirs. Tony better hope the crane operator got enough coffee from the dispensary before climbing into the control seat…

And I’m positive Cap is about ready to bust Batman down for hanging around the work site.

Don’t forget, the entire (ongoing) set is on Flickr.

That’s No Moon…

My wonderful wife gave me the Lego Death Star exclusive kit this past Christmas. Rather than spend a solid two days gorging on building this awesome set, I decided to take my time and spread the construction love over the course of several days in 2-3 hour sessions.

She gave me the idea to “chronicle” the process by taking photos after each stage, so this is the result (of sorts). I had other Lego minifigs in my collection clamor to help – how could I refuse? You’ll see their goofing off efforts scattered among the photos.

I’ve posted a few below. For the complete set, check my Flickr album, which will be updated as progress continues in the creation of this “technological terror.”

Of course, after reports of all the goofing off, there was the inevitable visit…
