Star Wars The New Yoda Chronicles is Bricktastic

Star wars The new Yoda chronicles DVD

Unleash the lighter side of the force with four complete episodes of Legos Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles. Your favorite heroes are back in Lego form as Luke goes on a quest to find the holocrons so that he can learn to be a Jedi. With Yoda and Obi-Wan watching from the sidelines and Darth Vader constantly talking to himself on his never ending quest to destroy the rebels, the race for the holocrons is an exciting adventure with action-packed thrills and interlocking, intergalactic comic adventures. The best part about this collection is it is fun for the whole family! Featuring Emperor Palpatine. Master Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, and more! Also coming out of retirement is the superclone Jek-14!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Episode 1: Escape from the Jedi Temple takes us back in time to when the Jedi temple is lost to the emperor and his craziness. The younglings, Bail Organa (an unknown coward), C-3PO (an unknown droid) and superclone Jek-14 must retrieve the holocrons from the Jedi temple and hide them where no one can find them. Their mission takes them into very dangerous territory that is now controlled by the dark side. With the not-so-helpful Yoda and Obi-wan watching their every move while they hover in space, the heroes retrieve the holocrons and flee Coruscant.

Episode 2: Race for the Holocrons continues the story as Ben tells Luke to find the holocrons so that he can learn to be a Jedi. The information contained in them will help him realize his destiny and become a Jedi like his father. Unfortunately, Vader is also after the Holocrons by order of the emperor. His exact words to Vader are, “I’ve got a fever and the only prescription are those holocrons!” I don’t think the emperor is as subtle in Lego form. His squareness must lead to more eccentric behavior, which adds to the hilariousness that I have come to expect in Lego movies.

Lego Star Wars The New Yoda Chronicles Jek-14

Episode 3: Raid on Coruscant is more of a clean up episode, as in, “the heroes have to clean up the mess they made when they let Vader retrieve the holocrons.” Now with all that power in the emperors hands, they empire begins to raid planets that are sympathetic to the rebellion. With time short and planets in trouble, Yoda and Ben call upon the one person that can help Luke win the battle…No not Qui-gon…they call on Jek-14. Oh, but ummm, Qui-Gon is still important, i mean he is great at opening pickle jars…right?

Lego Star Wars The New Yoda Chronicles Luke

Episode 4: Clash of the Skywalkers brings the story to a close as we get to see Luke and Vader fight to the death in an epic one-on-one battle. The Lego lightsabers clash on an unknown asteroid surface as the force flies between the two Skywalkers. It is a battle for the ages, of good vs. evil, dark vs. light, red vs. Blue and a Slug. Only one will be victorious, only one will survive, may the odds be ever in their favor…wait, wrong film. Besides, this is a Lego movie, death is only momentary, they can be rebuilt. They have the technology. They can make them better than they were. Better, stronger, faster. Or at the very least, they will be square again.

Along with all four episodes, this DVD collection also comes with an alternate ending, which is perfect for us Dark Side sympathizers. I will give you a sneak peek: We get to see Darth Vader do a conga line. The Alternate Ending is a nice surprise and fits well with the whole comedy theme. They only thing I wish they would do is place the alternate ending in with the entire episode. It is annoying to have to stop the episode in just the right spot and then click Alternate Ending to continue the story with the ending I want. It would be simpler for a person to choose between a Jedi or Sith episode and see the whole thing in one go.

Lego Star Wars The New Yoda Chronicles Vader1

I, however, absolutely enjoyed this collection and found myself laughing through every episode. The fun Lego theme and hilarious off the wall dialog makes for an entertaining story. Let’s face it, when Darth Vader “dents his head thing” I nearly fell off the couch with laughter. This is everything I would expect from a Lego inspired Collection. Comical, off the wall and not at all canon, Star Wars The New Yoda Chronicles is a “Bricktastic” fun adventure everyone will love!

13 Easy DIY Christmas Gifts & Stocking Stuffers

13 DIY Christmas Gifts

Struggling to find that perfect Christmas Gift? You and many others are in the same confined stocking. Everything is so commercialized and mass produced that nothing feels really special anymore. Not to mention that the bank accounts are often so low that buying a gift is more overwhelming than fun. You could carry on the tradition of worrying, struggling with ideas and fighting crowds, or you could do something new such as making the gifts this year. I always find that making a Christmas gift is far more meaningful than items I can find in a store because I can make them for each individual and personalize it.

There are so many ideas out there for DIY Christmas gifts, simply do a search on Pinterest and you will find tons of examples and creations. I have compiled a list of 13 DIY Christmas Gifts that are quick and easy to make. You can find Pom Pom Bookmarks for the readers in the family, soap (who doesn’t need that), Sugar scrub, edible plants and more in the list below.

  1. Make Pom Pom Bookmarks for that special reader. For those of us that like the feeling and smell of paper books, this is a great gift! Easy to make as well! Get the instructions from Design Mom
  2. yarn-pom-pom-ball-bookmark-title

  3. Mini Origami Books are great stocking stuffers. How this little book should be used is left to the imagination of the recipient (perhaps an awesome flip book). Learn to make one at Paper Kawaii
  4. Paper Kawaii Mini Book Origami

  5. Another Pom Pom idea is the DIY Pom Pom Bag Charms. Take the pom poms from the bookmarks and create keychains, charms and other unique gifts. A little Yarn can make the fluffiest items. The bag charm instructions can be found on a pair & a spare

  9. Winter is here and naturally hands get cold. You could buy those “use once and throw away” hand warmers but that gets expensive. I think the best thing you could do is DIY! Some fabric, a little rice and a sewing machine makes a reusable hand warmer. Give them as gifts with fabric styled after each persons personality to make them special. Be sure to make one for yourself! Learn to make these hot little items at Little House Living
