I received notices from helpful folks in Eurobricks and Flickr about my previous work being stolen, I have heard about cases like this but never imagined that this would happen to me, after all, I am just an ordinary player, so after knowing that my work is worth stealing, it is a good sign indeed.

But on the other hand, stealing is bad, even stealing something of small value, even a rotten egg, is still stealing, this is unquestionably something that must be stopped!

Information at flickr that alerts me

Source of issue (2009-09-16 update: already removed)

My Original work

But it is a pleasure to find people who use their precious time to help others and stop bad things from distracting the young generation about proper attitude and values, again, thanks to them for the help!

The lego community obviously are all now focusing on the new products coming up, what excites Starwars fans most must easily be the 10198 Tantive IV, while these new sets are truly wonderful, let's recall the same excitement that ignited the lego starwars passion last year.

Lego 7676 Republic Attack Gunship may be forgotton by many now, but it is probably one of the best Starwars vehicle produced by Lego so far, I am not going to repeat the features here as you must already known about them or read about those somewhere many times, I just like to point out a few of my observations:

1. Republic Attack Gunship may be the Starwars clone wars vehicle with the most exposures, and it is really beautiful. The Lego implementation reproduced the movie details to its best:



Opening cabin door, compartment for command station and healing chamber 



Two seats camel style pilot cabin



Compartment can carry combat units and a speeder bike, and there is a backdoor for entry


2. It is a vehicle with much flexibility and playability




Positionable cannons, missiles, flexible wings, combat chamber on wings.

3. The minifigs mix is great, with the passion of Lego Starwar fans, never would be a set be good enough in that aspect. But remember, this is the only set that gives you Ventress.


Commander Cody and Clone Trooper


Obi-Wan Kenobi and Plo Koon

Talking about Ventress, despite being a villain, she is a fascinating character and one of the most fearsome nemesis of the good jedi clan, without her, wouldn't the war be less fun?

I recently blogged about the nice review I found at Eurobricks on the Lego Pirates Chess set, and later I found out that the "hats" wore by the imperial soldiers in the Chess set is different from those from the Tic Tac Toe set, I am not good at western history and asked about this in Eurobricks, and a number of nice people shared very helpful information, please find the thread at http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=32695, I think a good understanding on this "hats" history can help us to recreate accurate historical scenes on Lego.
