• Giant 12-Foot-Tall LEGO Santa

      Brick by brick, visitors to San Francisco's Union Square are taking part in a fantastically geeky holiday treat: helping to build a 12-foot-tall, 10-foot-wide Santa Yoda.
      The event, which takes place this weekend, is part of a Lucasfilm and Lego promotion for the launch of www.legosantayoda.com, a Web site that will soon let you send Star Wars-themed holiday greeting cards. For each virtual greeting shared, Lego will donate one new Lego toy to the United States Marine Corps' Toys for Tots program, up to 1 million toys.

      The public is invited to come out and help build from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. PT, Saturday and Sunday. Be sure to get there this weekend, though, if you want to ogle Yoda. When the jolly Jedi is completed Sunday evening, he'll promptly be dismantled.

      A team of Lego Master Builders is on hand to help assemble the effigy of the Jedi master, which will eventually contain about 250,000 bricks.

      That's some cool stuff. I'm not sure how sold I am on the pixelized paint apps, but the fact that the sculpts don't look pixelated at all leads me to

      As of right now I believe the plan for the two 4-packs (one pack for the turtles and one pack for the foot clan) are that they will be only SDCC exclusives.

      Man, those are pretty cool too! Too many great choices all of a sudden.

      Are the NECA figures going to be released in a non-exclusive format?

      I don't know about you, but I'm digging the upcoming SDCC exclusive TMNT arcade figures from NECA.

      Yeah, all the group photos I've found so far include the cartoony expression heads.

      What's everyone having for lunch today?

      Lunch at The Hat: chili burger (I keep forgetting they put mustard and pickles on them), fries & ketchup, water (with ice! ) in a plastic cup.

      It's odd how the UK has so many of the latest sets and retailers here in the states got zilch.

      Pretty much all Star Wars stuff is selling
