Lego Death Star!

My child did something amazing. Check this out. It’s the Lego Death Star! Finished!


“Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational battle station.”


Sound familiar? My boy didn’t say it when he showed me he was done, but he should have. It was the first line from the movies that popped in my head.



Over 4,000 pieces!

2 and 1/2 years to build. (I didn’t push him, just encouraged him every once in a while.)

The instruction book is 230 pages long.

There are 192 steps detailed in the instruction book.

Possibilities now—endless.


“He’s heading for that small moon.”


“That’s no moon. It’s a space station.”


“You’re all clear kid. Now let’s blow this thing and go home.”

We don’t plan on taking it apart any time soon. We’re going to enjoy the “fully…operational battle station” for a while.

This is where I'm supposed to brag about how I've written seven novels, twelve screenplays, thousands of short stories, four self-help books, and one children's early-reader, but I'd rather stay humble. You can find out about things I've written or follow my barchive (web archive, aka 'blog) at or follow me on twitter @kurt_gailey. I love sports and music and books, so if you're an athlete or in a band or you're a writer, give me a follow and I'll most likely follow you back. I've even been known to promote other people's projects.
