  1. Thanks! No this one uses 4 midsection pieces to make it a little longer which I really liked, more room to add cannons! The designer of this MOC pattered his design off of the Lego game as well which turned out great! I'm glad CaptainDee could answer your question. I just scoured bricklink for things and came across that. The head is Barbara Gordon from the Lego Batman Movie and the torso is Han Solo in carbonite, I just painted the light flesh to match Annamaria's skin tone.
  2. I built Brickstruct.com's custom Black Pearl recently and wanted to share the result with you in case any of you were wondering how it turns out. The build was pretty good, a bit unstable at some points but in the end it all came together very nicely and it is one of my favorite sets. The build is definitely worth the purchase of the custom instructions and bricks. I reused a lot of the bricks from the official Black Pearl set, but this set is over twice the number of bricks. Having a top deck is really nice. It isn't the easiest to get to the bottom deck, this is mostly a display set I feel. So I put some plates down on the bottom deck to hold the cannons in place. There is also a little cell on the bottom deck that I put a skeleton in. It's not really pictured, but there is a skylight that shows down into the captain's quarters. Anyway, here are some pics, hope you enjoy! Here's the full ship. I think one of my favorite things are all the cannons the ship holds: I added a plank and some top deck cannons to the build: I put together a few custom minifigures to go with the official ones to round out Jack and Barbossa's crew: A couple more pics of the ship: I displayed it in a sea of about 6000 trans-blue single round studs. I sure hope it never falls off the shelf! One last pic of Jack stranded on his island with just his compass, a pistol, and some rum.
  3. That UCS one is amazing. I looked for that person's contact info to get the plans but never could find them. Do you have a link? I did the same thing with the original Milano and replaced all the yellowish orange pieces with the regular orange, looks much better that way.
  4. Do you have any thoughts on a good hairpiece for Vulture when his mask is off?
  5. This is what my Depa Billaba came out like using a Kanan Jarrus head. The hair is not perfect as she has hair like Besoin Leia which there is no match, but I wanted one that made it clear she is female.
  6. Gordon does have a good head and a little lighter dark flesh which is good for variety, I've used that one for a Pirates of the Caribbean Anamaria custom, but for Billaba I think that is even too dark. I think I'd rather go lighter than darker, but I do think Kanan's skin tone is pretty good her. I just hate to erase print from a head and not like the final result, but I've got a couple extra Kanan heads so it should be ok and I'll only do the one side.
  7. Do you think non-female heads can pass as a female custom figure? I want to have a Depa Billaba figure but the best skin tone I think is that of Kanan Jarrus if I were to erase his goatee and cheek lines. Do you think that would be ok looking or do you think the head really needs a female head?
  8. Amazon had a few in-stock today and I was able to snag one. I've had a tracker set up on their site for a couple days and they seem to get them periodically during the days. Today they had about 4 in-stock a few hours ago and was able to get one!
  9. Not exactly my latest purchase, that would be the Vader Transformation, but here is my latest build: Battle of Scarif x2
  10. I'm scared! Awesome job!
  11. I want to see a Winter Village Ski Lodge! When do you think Lego will announce their Winter set for this year?
  12. I ordered 10 of the wavy Han hair and replaced all my New Hope and Empire Hans with that hair. I left the Jedi sets Han with the tousled hair.
  13. Thanks. I'll give mine a look tonight.
  14. Those arms sound good. I just put sleeveless arms on him because that's what I had. Better than all white.
