LEGO Star Wars
We've grown up playing with Lego and watching the Star Wars films and we were excited to see the exhibit at SM North Edsa - The Block. Seeing the toys at the exhibit brought out the child in us. The Star Wars Lego Exhibit started last February 25 and will last until March 11, 2012. :)
Galaxy far, far away
Did you know that "LEGO" is the abbreviation of "leg godt", two Danish words that mean "play well"? It has been an established brand, started out in 1932. All of us have enjoyed playing and creating with these LEGO blocks!
Star Wars has been a pop culture phenomenon since it was first released in 1977. From this, video games, books, television series and toys were created. It's fitting that LEGO made a series out of this popular hit! :)
Battle at Endor
On the right side before the entrance is a battle scene at the forest moon of Endor, between the Ewoks and scout troopers. The scene is made more alive with the bright green Lego trees, troopers and Ewoks with their weapons.
Ewoks versus imperial AT-AT

On the other side, aircrafts are featured like the famous Millennium Falcon as well as Jedi Starfighters. A lot of toy collectors have shared their passion to others.
After exploring the outside, we then headed to the dark room where the other toys from various different Star Wars Lego collectors were featured. Thanks to these generous collectors, we were able to see these one-of-a-kind pieces! It's a nice experience seeing the scenes from the different sequels of the Star War movies through lego formations. Each display was intricately done, you can see that a lot of effort was put in to the exhibit.
Above is a big lego creation showing off the stand where the troopers watched the pod race in the movie Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace.

Jabba's Sail Barge
Tatooine is the home planet of Luke and Anakin Skywalker, appearing in most of the Star Wars films. It's mostly a desert, so the pieces here are sand in color. :p Included here is Jabba's sail barge, used to sail the dunes of Tatooine.
With the settlers
Another part of the exhibit features a factory like place where the vehicles are assembled. The small details are fun to look at! They make it as 'realistic' as possible. Hehe! :p
Behind the scenes
Starfighter in the making
One of the bigger displays shows the battle between the troopers and the Republicans, complete with their ground attack vehicles! The attention to details is great! The scene looks action-packed! :p
In Star Wars movies, we always look forward to the battle scenes. There's so much action, thrill and excitement. The graphics are cool, too! The creators really have brilliant minds! :p
Ready for battle
THE LEGO EXPERIENCE
Fun at the Lego exhibit
Though the exhibit was not that extensive, we still had fun! We've wanted to go see these LEGO exhibits, especially the one featuring places all over the Philippines. It's great to see such scenes made out of LEGO blocks! :)
