Got the #LEGOSWCO exclusive set!
Think Geek has some awesome merchandise. The tiki set is very tempting. Too bad Jabba is already sold out!
Yes! My favorite cosplay so far!
My credit card is already crying.
Checking out the droid builders. Perhaps these are the droids you're looking for?
So impressive and unique!
I think I found my favorite droid.

So much detail in their Rose Bowl parade Lego diorama!
