It is appropriate that I am on photo number 4744 on my 44th birthday. I started this project on my 31st birthday and have no signs of stopping. So, I turned 44 today. Another birthday in the books. I ad worked last night so this morning was all about sleep. at least until about 12:30. Then I got up and went to the Boneyard BBQ Saloon for $0.50 wings. I get their buffalo and blue cheese wings well done and they are incredible!!
I hung out at home after that and then when the family came home the kids were all sorts of excited to celebrate. I had asked that we grill up steak tips for dinner. We hadn’t done that in a long time and it is a great birthday dinner. Allison also made her special roasted potatoes using the small potatoes so they crisped up real well. I also love to grill so getting to do that for my birthday was awesome. Dinner was a success!
After dinner Allison and the kids presented me with my birthday cake, which was a bunch of cupcakes in a circle decorated to look like Captain America’s Shield!!! It was so awesome that I’ll even forgive them the fact that I am Team Iron Man. The kids made me some very nice cards, too. Andrew did a bunch of drawings. They also picked out a great Star Wars LEGO set for me. I had already bought all of the Marvel ones for myself. The set they got me was the one where Luke trains Rey on the island. I’ll have to build that with them this coming week during vacation.
I received a copy of the new DVD LEGO star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures for free to watch and review. I also have five additional copies to give away. Opinions are 100% my own.
When I first learned about the LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures I was excited. I had watched all the other LEGO Star Wars specials but those were based on the movies and told the stories from different perspectives in the humorous way that LEGO can. The Freemaker Adventures was also a show that would have the humor of LEGO and be set in the Star Wars Galaxy but these would be all new stories with new characters. The time in which these stories are set is during the beginning of the Rebellion from the original trilogy of movies. However, the story draws upon so many aspects of the Star Wars mythology. We spend time with many familiar faces between seasons 1 & 2 but in season 2 the Freemakers are now part of the Rebel fleet and are working directly with the rebels.
One funny part of this season was the introduction of M-OC an agent of the Emperor. The funny thing is that M.O.C. means something in the LEGO community and at the same time the spelling of M-OC makes it a droid designation. In the LEGO world M.O.C. stands for My Own Creation. Working with Brian on Built from Bricks I have learned a lot of LEGO lingo and I love how they put that into the Star Wars Universe. I also liked how there were some special LEGO sets made based on this series, the Arrowhead ship was particularly awesome but even the Freemaker’s ship was an impressive build.
The DVD has the complete season and final season plus it also has five bonus shorts.
