Back to the Future! with Playmobil

lightningstrike_2k
I absolutely love the playmobil treatment that the Back to the Future franchise recently received. I’ve been a big fan of playmobil and Back to the Future almost the exact same time of my life. In fact today is Back to the Future day and playmobil has their BTTF sets for 25% off! The fact that they’re some of my favorite things, after all this time, is quite a testament to the staying power that comes with good quality, and heart.

I got to try the first cheeseburger…


Louis Lunch is recognized by the Library of Congress as the first restaurant to serve a hamburger. I was in New Haven CT, so I had to give it a try. See what all the fuss was about. Final verdict, it was the most delicious history lesson I’ve ever had.

R2-3X (300% 3D Printed R2-D2)

awesomeR23X_01
I’m starting to dabble in the world of Kenner-style Star Wars customs, after restoring a rough 3.75″ R2-D2, dubbed Repro-D2, I got the bug and wanted a slightly larger project. 3 times as large. I purchased an STL file of the original Kenner R2 and had it 3D printed at 300%, roughly the size of a beer can. This size allows for cool photos, that would be impossible to take with an original size R2 action figure. Read on for some progress photos during construction, and more creative photography with my R2-3X.
