LEGO is a huge outlet for our family. One of our favorite uses for the bricks is in storytelling.
A website I’ve been following over the past four years is FBTB.net. The site features news and reviews on LEGO products and hosts frequent LEGO building contests. They also host a LEGO fan gallery during Star Wars Day at LEGOLAND in Carlsbad, CA. When they announced an open call for builders to submit their models to be displayed during the Star Wars event, I quickly registered my LEGO Ideas project, The Moldy Crow, to help get exposure and feedback.
One of the five contest categories FBTB announced for this years event was titled “Skywalker Family Reunion” and Calista was excited to enter her own build. She thought of a series of small vignettes featuring Ben Solo as a little boy playing with his furry friend, Chewbacca, reminiscent of the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes.
Thus, Ben and Bacca was born.
