VINTAGE REVIEW – LEGO SYSTEM SURF SHACK 6595

The premise to chronicle Hans Solo’s (also Chewbacca and the legendary Millennium Falcon) early life before Star Wars Episode IV. Like shoes (keep with me on this thought) you can never have enough and it appears LEGO has adopted this approach with the Millennium Falcon announcing yesterday that they will release a…

It’s ironic that I was sitting with my morning coffee today having a discussion with my wife about buying some new summer T-shirts.
