Other Stuff Coming Down the Pipes - Models and Figures

I want to get back into building models and painting figures. So I placed an order on Amazon. These seem to be all Japanese imports, but not ridiculously expensive.

Millennium Falcon + 2 X-Wings 2 A-Wings Jedi Starfighter

The fighters are all 1/144 scale while the Falcon is 1/350. I might have to kit bash a Falcon is 1/144 scale, but I have no idea how big that would be.

As I progress, we'll be looking at each build individually.

Anyway, my kids are asking for some Lego Star Wars sets. I can't find the Falcon, but I did find the fighters. These images are link's to Lego.com. I have to warn you, the reason my kids don't have these is the price.

Legos for Role Play

Back in the day, Legos had a great series of Knights which I used as figures for my D&D games when I didn't have time to paint minis.

While that series is long gone, they have newer series which offer min-figs and settings for your game. These are Pirates sets and offers pistols, swords, sharks, a boat, rifles and other cool additions for play.

Click the linked images below to view and purchase products on Lego.com. Every click and purchase supports me via remuneration.

This first link offers the pirate ship at a significant markdown.
You can combine this purchase with a code to get a free Drag Racer product on orders over $45.00.
LEGO Hidden Side Drag Racer GWP, free with all purchases over $45 on LEGO.com.

This link is the Pirate ship at full price. Use the link above for a considerable savings or use this link for free shipping on orders over $35.00.

And this link is for a smaller set.

A-Wing Test of Rakuten Ads

As I mention in December update of The Tek, I am looking to put more high quality ads on my site to generate more revenue. This post is a test of such ads.

I recently posted about the Star Wars RPG and generally have Star Wars on the brain. The A-Wing is my favorite fighter from this series, so I selected it as my first test post. I need to figure out the rules of the road for these ads. One issue I have is, these ads include large pictures which precludes placing them in the sidebar. On the upside, I can mine ad content for posting ideas which will bump up my posts, even if they don't result in more ads.

Now this particular product is new and is priced at $29.99 at Lego and Target. It is cheaper elsewhere. If the ads work as intended, I will make sure this is the first thing I buy.

Yeah... It's an addiction. The image below is an ad.
