LEGO Mandalorian Sets AT-ST and Battle Pack Review

The Mandalorian surprised everyone with just how awesome a live-action Star Wars series could be before the show had even launched Lego had revealed it’s first Mandalorian Set. With 2020’s January wave, a second set appeared.

Sadly neither were the Razorcrest set we badly need in our lives, but let’s look at 2019’s AT-ST Raider and 2020’s Mandalorian Battle Pack.

My Life in 2019: A Personal Journey

2019 A Personal Journey of Agent Palmer

It’s the journey, right? Tony Stark said that “part of the journey is the end” in one of this year’s biggest movies, but while 2019 is coming to an end, my journey is still in progress. As all of yours are, to one extent or another.

LEGO Star Wars Snow Speeder – 20th Anniversary Edition – A Review

Earth Rising over the Moon from NASA Archive

I remember watching The Right Stuff and, what is quite possibly the best miniseries on the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo era of NASA Moonshot which was co-written by Deke Slayton and Al Shepherd.
