chibiguri has become a major fan of LEGOs. However, not just any LEGOs - he has also developed anobsession with the 'Star Wars' movie series. This is somewhat curious since he has never seen the original movies as far as I am aware. Instead, he has discovered the 'new' trilogy focusing on Anakin Skywalker (also known as Darth Vader). So he has been busily demanding ever more difficult Star Wars models to build. To date, he has successfully assembled the following:
1. General Grievous' Starfighter
2. Droid Tri-Fighter
3. Plo-Koon's Jedi Starfighter
4. Imperial V-wing Fighter

Still on the list to (eventually) get if he retains his current interest are:
1. Ultimate Millennium Falcon
2. Star Destroyer
3. Tantive IV Blockade Runner

There are others in the Ultimate Collection as well, but we'll have to see if chibiguri's interest holds up before we go too far in this direction - they are both VERY LARGE and VERY EXPENSIVE! For now we are stayingh with the regular LEGO Star Wars sets. But chibiguri has proven to be a careful and expert builder - he does these all by himself. Once built, though, they do get played with and tend to fall apart a bit...

Next year he will be old enough for the LEGO Builders' summer camp. I think we just might send him - he really enjoys building things!
