  1. The absolute lack of dual molding and side printing for figures of LEGO's biggest theme is almost criminal. The sets look good, some of the figures do too, but it's time to stop putting frontal curtain robes on Obi-Wan's legs.
  2. Crispy Anakin... that should be some sort of snack.
  3. Jon Snow's Snowball Machine
  4. Am I seeing that right? Did they make Thrawn's eyes not red?
  5. Is it just me, or are many of these sets above average both in terms of minifig design and set design? There's really something about them.
  6. Thank you, TWP!
  7. Thanks for the kind words, everyone! I'm glad you like it and I'm glad I managed to accomplish what I wanted to with this MOC. There's no real interior here other than tiles and walls, but I'll most likely be going back to Kyo's Cantina in the future to make an interior scene!
  8. Thank you, I'm really happy with how it turned out as well! As for the inside, only tiles and some walls, I'm planning on making a scene taking place inside of this specific cantina in the future.
  9. The possibility of getting Graballa the Hutt and some other unique aliens alone actually makes getting more Freemakers sets worth it.
  10. Ord Mantell Kyo's Cantina "Kyo's Cantina, located on the lawless planet of Ord Mantell in Artellon City, is a location frequently visited by spacers, as well as smugglers, bounty hunters and scum alike." [Also view on Flickr]
  11. Who the heck mistakes Playmobil for LEGO?
  12. Why is it being called "Salazar's Revenge"? Did they actually change the title to that now? I hope not, sounds horrible. "Dead Men Tell No Tales" was an awesome title and nowhere as generic as the above.
  13. Thanks, Forresto! It was a quick concept 'sketch', and at first I was satisfied with the idea, but now I'm a bit more hesitant when it comes to trying this. There seem to be a few more differences between the Kashyyyk trooper & Imperial scout trooper helmets than just the lower front part. The Imperial scout trooper helmet is much curvier, the front part of it is slimmer and juts out in a forward position quite a bit more, and the side vents are larger and more apparent. which leads me to believe that I might as well just update the body alone and simply wait for LEGO to release an actual new helmet mold. I might still try it, but I'd have to find suitable white spray paint that resembles LEGO white. (Do let me know, if any of you know any good types) With that said, while I do like the Kashyyyk troopers, I do find it ridiculous that they were given precedence over new Imperial scout trooper helmets.
  14. What do you guys think of the current OT scout trooper helmet? It's been in use for nearly 16 years now, and the only Imperial helmet mold I really feel has held up since then has, of course, been the regular stormtrooper helmet. That one's perfect as it is, but the scout trooper helmet could, I believe, use some updating. What would you guys think of using the Kashyyyk trooper helmet for one? In terms of customizing, it would mean sanding down the two round things near the vent in the frontal part of the helmet, then spraying it all white to paint the rest accordingly afterwards. This is an idea I had today, and I mean to recreate it with a real helmet piece very soon. I believe the shapes are almost the same (correct me if I'm wrong), and, let's be honest here, the old scout trooper helmet has never been that accurate. It captures a bit of the basic look, but the overall shape doesn't match its movie counterpart and has, simply put, become outdated in general as well. So what do you guys think, would the Kashyyyk scout trooper helmet mold be a suitable way of updating the OT scout trooper helmet as well? I made a really quick concept/demonstration with a few comparison shots of my idea, just imagine the rest along with it:
  15. Hey, that actually looks very good, like I had hoped it would. I actually had exactly the same idea for the Royal Guard gown, so I'm definitely going to be making use of it now, having seen it. However, Forresto's idea sounds good to me as well. I'd like to see Royal Guards with double gowns, if you'd be willing to show us that. The only problem I can think of with that would be the "curtain" effect it might have, with the front parts of the gown hanging down on each side.
