Wow, thats great. I would of acted the same way, skeptical. That is fantastic work. If you do decide to build more stuff for him, be careful, I know I would. Patent the designs my friend. Try not to get ripped off. If Lego hasnt done it yet, build them and sell them the patterns for mucho deniro.
And dont forget my 10% idea fee..............

I would have been a little more diplomatic about my skepticism.
Lucasfilm already owns these designs, so there's no way AC is going to get 1 dime for doing Lego sets based on these (heck, just look how many SW vehicles were made in Lego before the official sets came out). Pretty interesting news he has about his design being considered by Lego & Hasbro though.
I'd tell him you were flattered and if he had other designs that you liked, you would certainly think about building them as well... but only if you actually WERE thinking about building them of course.

The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.
We all know about your fantastic dioramas, and now you get compliments even from an actual SW designer!
This is a feat to be proud of! (as an old computer solitaire was saying when you were able to complete it )
I would not think immediately about making money from this. There are other things besides money. For example the satisfaction of seeing a creation recognized as a good work (obviously imho ).
If I were you I would maintain the contacts with the designer. He already freely donated you some original work (which seems very interesting, by the way), can you imagine how many first hand information he could pass you?
Keep up your good work!
Very much skeptical about it and that's why I responded as such. He certainly proved me wrong and as for Lego doing them I'm not too concerned about it.Originally Posted by kidhuman
True JT, no way no how I could really make any money off them no matter how I try since Lucas Arts owns the designs. When Lego comes out with them, remember where you read about it first.Originally Posted by JediTricks
My sons are even prouder about it and do you really think I'd be doing this to make money out of it? Not a chance, even though I kinda have tapered off from doing dioramas, it still makes me smile and feel gratified whenever I get emails from viewers that are seeing my works for the first time. Of course I'm still keeping in touch with him and I only wish I could share the stuff he sent me. But I always keep my word.Originally Posted by JediGoofy
