LEGO Star Wars Poe Dameron’s X-wing Fighter: Fighting Covid-19 One Brick At A Time
One day in — 12 hours in — and my boys (9, 7, 3) are losing it. So, what is a dad to do? Dive into the LEGO Stash, of course.
This is project No. 2 during the current quarantine – a Star Wars “polybag.”
Dr. Bishop Prescribes LEGO
The first one, a Marvel polybag, I wrote about that below:
Again, my family is fighting boredom one brick at a time. And as I’ve written in the link above. I make a habit of grabbing the best of “what’s left” at Target and Walmart. So I hit the sales and clearance aisles hard. Then, there’s the checkout line, I peruse the “can’t leave without me” rack.
Dig, baby, dig. You gotta. Because behind Santa, the Christmas Train, and the leftover LEGO 2 polybag, and under the Friends, you’ll find the Star Wars vehicles.
This time around, we worked on Poe Dameron’s X-wing, The Rise of Skywalker edition, brick set No. 30386. Just 72 pieces. Price? I believe I found this one at $4.99 (plus tax). I want to say Walmart, just after the holidays; put safely into the garage for just such an occasion.
Stop Motion Star Wars
This time around, Jack, my oldest, took the reigns and even did the stop-motion photography. Heck yeah, I’m proud.

Anyway, long story short. The 9-year-old built and filmed it. The 3-year-old grabbed it and played with it for an hour. The 7-year-old; well, he played Fortnite. So we’re hitting .666 and feeling good going into Day 2.
May The Force be with us….
