carbon copy

As you probably already know, Noah requires his LEGOs to be exact copies of their movie or TV character. But he doesn't stop at characters. Even their weapons need to be an accurate copy of the movie weapon. 

So obviously, the standard-issue LEGO gun of Han Solo didn't cut it after he saw Han Solo's gun via a Google search.

A month ago, using 2 standard-issue LEGO Han Solo guns, cardboard, a portion of a LEGO staff and Sharpies, he custom-built a carbon copy of the gun from the old Star Wars movies.

Okay, okay. I know Noah won't understand what "carbon copy" means anymore, with carbon paper and typwriters obsolete. But one old thing that hasn't gone obsolete is Han Solo's gun. Turns out, he still uses the same gun in Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

When Noah told me he spotted the gun that looks like his custom LEGO in the movie, he said, "I was so happy when I saw it because he still uses it after 30 years!" Now isn't that a moment worth making a copy of?

Noah's age when he created this: 10 years, 10 months
