        Those are pretty cool, I hope they keep expanding SW Miniland, it was a nifty design last year but more really would fill it out. I'm interested in seeing the gallery as well.

        That Sandcrawler is really impressively big, they should release it as a real set.

      I tried to make an eyeball Easter egg. It didn't turn out well.

      So my daughter made a better one, and the reverse says, "You are creepy.
