We like to imagine a family of Ewoks living in LEGO builder Kevin’s awesome treehouse. The model features over 2600 pieces, and took hundreds of hours to design. We’d love to see it turned into a kit we can all buy. If you do too, show your support on LEGO Ideas.

If a Tree Falls in the Forest…

If a Tree Falls in the Forest…
