The Battle of Hoth....

Postby JuniorChubb » Mon Jan 21, 2013 3:48 pm

The Battle of Hoth was recreated in the back garden today before the kids went to school. Jr was the Empire and I was the Rebels....

Luckily enough I was there to capture it on my camera :D

Just to add, Boba is still MIA and will have to wait for the big thaw before a rescue team is sent out, so if you want a free vintage Boba just raid the back garden tonight :lol: :lol:

Good to see Walrusman getting in on the act - no surprise he didn't make it though, not exactly camouflaged for Hoth warfare

I wondered what Walrus was up to. The others could have used him as a distress flare!
I love that upward shot of the AT-AT.
