  1. Nope! This is the lamest UCS set ever! 187 pcs. https://brickset.com/sets/10026-1/Special-Edition-Naboo-Starfighter
  2. Sorry if this has already been discussed, but does anyone know if a UCS style label was ever created for these larger AT-AT's?
  3. Sorry if this has been seen before on Eurobricks, but I just came across it and thought it was absolutely amazing! Wish I had this kind of talent! Power of the Dark Sideark Side-2 by LEGO 7, on Flickr
  4. Me too! All the snow came yesterday. Just curious where do you live?
  5. DONE! Very impressive build! Perfectly on par to what Lego should finally turn into an official UCS set. Directions were great! I will probably add some more interior details only because my 6 year old son wants to add some snow speeder bikes, rappelling lines, and some "computer" screens. Hopefully, I can snap some pics tomorrow. Thanks again for all your efforts and kind generousity for sharing how to make this awesome MOC!!!
  6. Started last night. If my last Bricklink order arrives before the weekend, I might have mine done by Sunday afternoon.
  7. I think it will depend on how much more we see of it in Episodes 8 and 9.
  8. Wow! Amazing job well done! This would be an awesome playset. It would be a day 1 purchase for me!
  9. Thanks belcor! I started building the original Lego version and got the main body and primary wing sections complete and said to myself this thing definitely needs to be converted to all black. By that time I had seen Jangbricks all black conversion on youtube, and also how others had started to integrate the technic rotation disks into the design of the wings so you wouldn't have to pull technic pins in and out and to get the wings in the folded down position. I'd estimate the design is still 85% Lego's. I didn't really have to change too much with the interior wing structure, but I did have to change the wing connection point to below the the main floor level instead of above it. This prevented the bottom of the wing tips from interfering with the bottom areas of the hull and allowed the wings to rotate down to the position you see them. And WOW! I had not seen the youtube video you linked to of the full mini-figure scale shuttle and diarama on Jakku. That creation is simply amazing! However, as incredible as those creations are I would still prefer to have something like I got that represents the essential essence of the original craft, but is still "swooshable" and I can "fly" through the house recreating Star Wars adventures with my kids!
  10. Go check out this link! It's a masterpiece!
  11. Oh my! That's right I had totally forgotten about that mini-figure scale MOC. I had to go back and find it. This is truly a work of art! So amazing!
  12. Thanks brobert! I think Lego will probably one day redesign this set to an updated version that is more film accurate.
  13. Thanks for the comments! I studied the images of Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle in the DK book Star Wars The Force Awakens Incredible Cross-Sections, because I kind of thought the same thing. Surprisingly, it's all black except for some of the transparent red pieces. I noticed the same thing with the very detailed Revell model and the die cast version from the Disney Store.
  14. Finally got my Kylo Ren command shuttle converted to all black with red viewing port and folding wings. I think it turned out decent and is still very playable and swooshable! Started on it last January, but became addicted to Star Wars Battlefront for way too long after getting a PS4 at Christmas. Anyway with the recent release of Krennic's shuttle in mostly all black, I got inspired to pick up the black pieces from many Bricklink orders and finish my conversion of Kylo Ren's shuttle. I wish I could have gotten the red viewing port "fangs" to transition a little better into the top portion, but it still looks pretty good from a distance. Removing all the cross linked technic beams opened up a lot of room in the interior. I added two sets of the technic rotation joint disks to each wing and now they have three clickable positions for folding up and down. 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command ShuttleIMG_4497 MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr Command Shuttles Comparison by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr Command Shuttles Comparison by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr
  15. WOW! This is incredible! The instructions look great! I can't wait to build this! Thanks so much for all the effort you guys put into this project so we can all enjoy this AT-AT MOC!!!
