New Nintendo DSI Games

Have you been looking at the new Nintendo DSI games? Of course they look very cool and a lot of fun, but my concern is that the new games may not work in my old DS. One thing that I love about my Nintendo DS is that my Game Boy Advanced games can play on my Nintendo DS. Now with the new Nintendo DSI games coming out, I hear that I cannot play the old Game Boy Advanced games on the DSI. That totally sucks.

We should be able to play the Game Boy Advanced and the Nintendo DS games on the Nintendo DSI. I would not expect that the new Nintendo DSI games would work in the Game Boy or the DS, but the other way around they should work.

The game manufacturers really know how to take advantage of their customers by making them buy entire new game systems and games every other year. I still don't have all of the games that I wanted to buy for my DS and now I am thinking about the DSI, but that is another story because I heard that the DSI sucks.

Good luck with your new Nintendo DSI games.

How To Download A Star Wars Lego Video To Youtube

Before you need to know how to download your Star Wars Lego video to youtube, you need to actually make the video. If you already have one made you will need to convert it to digital unless it is already digital. You can use an old movie that you already made, a cell phone video, etc.

Everyone loves Star Wars and Lego, so any kind of video featuring the combination of the two should be very popular. Make sure your video is appropriate and does not violate any of youtubes rules.

Open an account with Youtube. This is very fast and easy to do. Youtube prefers you to convert your files to QuickTime .MOV, Windows .AVI, or .MPG files. They have instructions on their site on how to do so. They will also allow you to resize your video if it is needed. Have fun because after you download your Star Wars Lego video to youtube, you may become very popular.

It's A Small World Disneyland Lego

It's A Small World Disneyland Lego
This is so cute, they did a great job buiding this It's a Small World at Disneyland in Lego. I want it! I love the ride and I love this miniature depiction of the ride. This is very creative. I am assuming that there is not a kit to build this piece, but I could be wrong, so if anyone knows, go ahead and email me.
May be it is a kit, because look at those cute little flowers decorating and look at the cool backdrop. It is so decorative, I bet that may be it is a kit. If it is not they sure did a great job making this Lego display.

Sarah Palin Lego Bust

Sarah Palin Lego Bust

This did not turn out so well did it. Good try, but this looks terrible. May be if they did not try to put an expression on her face it would have looked better. The squinted eye and the attempt at the smirk makes her look scary. May be she would look terrible in Lego no matter what.

Sorry Sarah, we love you, but the Sarah Palin Lego Bust clearly did not turn out as well as they thought it would. I am sure they did not try to mangle your face the way they did.

Taj Mahal Built From Lego

Taj Mahal Built From Lego

You can build this yourself. It is beautiful. As long as you have all of the essential parts and the baseplate, and of course the instructions, I think you can get this put together pretty quickly. There are so many amazing things you can build with Lego now. I wonder if they have the White House in Lego?

After you build it, you will never want to take it apart, so you will need a place to put your Lego Taj Mahal.

Stormtroopers Break Dancing

Star Wars Stormtrooper Buying Groceries

Star Wars Stormtroopers Buying Groceries

It is nice to know that the Star Wars Stormtroopers buy the same food that us humans do. These stormtroopers from the Imperial Guard seem to be having fun while shopping and they do not seem to be bringing any attention to themselves. I guess in this town it is normal to have stormtroopers in the neighborhood grocery store. I just wonder how they get the food into their mouths. Through the opening in the front or do they need to remove their helmets. If the stormtroopers did remove their helmets, are they human underneath?

Star Wars Stormtroopers Serving Coffee

Darth Vader and Stormtroopers Serve Coffee

Star Wars fans are not used to seeing their favorite characters serving up coffee at the local java shop, but you never know what you might run into. Darth Vader and a couple of Imperial Guard Stormtroopers are serving joe, with aprons on at a coffee house near you. At least you know that they won't be coughing or sneezing in your food. This must be in a cool area or at least in an air conditioned store because I cannot imagine the heat in those suits. Not to mention that they must be uncomfortable for long periods of time.

Stormtrooper Imperial Guard Exercising

Stormtrooper Imperial Guard Exercising

I guess stormtroopers need exercise just like all living beings in the galaxy. Star Wars fans should keep an eye out for these Imperial Guards. You just might find them in the most unusual places such as your gym. They must get sweaty quickly with all that plastic covering their bodies. I wonder how they shower with those things on. I guess they don't have to worry about rust since they seem to be all plastic and cloth. Stormtroopers can be found any where these days, from the movie theatre to the grocery store to every fans delight.

Stormtrooper Imperial Guard Bowling

Stormtrooper Imperial Guard Bowling

Just what you want to see next to you the next time you are at the bowling lanes, a Stormtrooper Imperial Guard. I am assuming that bowling is pretty difficult in a suit like this one. I don't know how one would sashay up to the line with plastic thighs rubbing together, but it looks like he is doing pretty good. As long as he doesn't bump the ball into his plastic leg guard it might just be a good shot. Next time you see a Stormtrooper Imperial Guard at the bowling alley make sure you take a picture of him (with you of course).

Stormtrooper Imperial Guard Mowing His Lawn

Stormtrooper Imperial Guard Mowing His Lawn

I thought all of the Star Wars Lego fans would also appreciate these photos of Stormtroopers when they are not doing their Imperial Guard duties. This one is mowing his lawn and lucky for him he is also out of most of his costume except for the helmet. It looks like it could be a pretty hot day for a stormtrooper outfit. George Lucas did not let us see enough of what these guys are doing in their spare time. Stormtrooper Imperial Guard keeping up appearances by wearing his helmet even when he is mowing his lawn, what a trooper!

LEGO Star Wars Anakin's Fighter

LEGO Star Wars Anakin's Fighter

Price $19.99 USD
This set is recommend for ages seven to twelve, it is from the Clone Wars movie. It comes with a mini figure of Anakin Skywalker and R2D2 droid. Anakin also is carrying a lightsaber. Kids can shoot two little missiles from the sides which is cool. This is before Anakin Skywalker turns into the evil Darth Vader. Lego really knows what boys want. This fighter should be on your list of must have toys for your boys. Don't show they this unless you can buy it! This Lego Star Wars toy is not recommended for children under three years of age due to choking hazzards.

LEGO Star Wars Rebel Scout Speeder

LEGO Star Wars Rebel Scout Speeder

Sells for $10.99 USD

Recommended age group is six to twelve years old. This Lego Star Wars toy is not recommended for children under three years of age due to the possibility of choking on the small parts. This LEGO Star Wars Rebel Scout Speeder is a super cool toy for boys. It comes with four mini figures which are always very popular with kids. This kit is easy to put together and younger children can probably play with it too under parental supervision. Of course as you can imagine, your kids will most likely play with this and other Lego Star Wars toys way past the age of twelve, my husband still plays with Lego and he is in his forties.

Star Wars Lego Toys

Star Wars Lego Toys

Lego, which has been popular in its own right for many years, has now taken on increased popularity with its partnership with Star Wars. You can now get Lego Star Wars ships, stations, death stars, figures and much more.

It is unbelievable, the amount of products that are available and how they increase in price in such a short time. Small mini kits that I paid $3.99 for just 4 years ago are now selling for $85.00 to $100.00

Characters such as Obi wan, Luke Skywalker, Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader come in a variety of mini figures.

I have a nine year old boy and he lives for Lego Star Wars toys. He absolutely loves every set he gets and he keeps a list of the sets he wants to get next. I am trying to convince him that Santa does not want a list of 20 Lego Star Wars sets. Don't you want anything else for Christmas? He thinks about it, but for the last 5 years, his list has not included anything else other than Lego.

It just blows me away that these sets are so freaking expensive. And the price is nothing if you cannot find the exclusive set that you are looking for. I don't know what Lego is thinking. They should be producing more sets. There are some sets that are never found at the store and are exclusive only to or there catalog. If you can get to the phone in time to order them, then you just might get one. And you can just forget about a discount. These collectors items are never discounted.

Good luck finding your favorite Lego Star Wars toys, you can look on this site to find the ones you are dreaming about.
