Thanks. You're right it's huge and heavy, made with 3200 parts. No need to say it takes a lot of room  :tongue:

This is sheer brilliance. Stunningly detailed. As others have said it really does not look like LEGO at first glance which is always an achievement, and it's got an interior. Fantastic!

Wow, what a fantastic model! I didn't even recognize it as LEGO before taking a hard look at it.

Fantastic job!

Well, scratch this one off the list of future MOCs.  I doubt I could ever create a Lambda class shuttle as stunning as this one is.  Absolutely brilliant.

And I second the request for instructions.  This shuttle would look awesome in my UCS display.

Holy Crap!!!!!! Thats awesome, huge and awesome. My only complaint is Palpatine's face, not evil enough. But 100/100.

Thanks. Yes the interior isn't movie accurate but as it's the private Emperor's ship, I wanted it to have some comfortable seats. Chairs are for the troops  :tongue:

Creating instructions is a long and boring process (in my opinion) on such a big model it would takes weeks or months to complete. So I haven't previewed to make instructions and the model will be sold* build (*that to answer skipper24 question at the same time).

As many people I was upset by the change of color TLC made in 2003 but finally I now enjoy this color asit's good for that type of customs.

Finally I wonder why I use flesh tone for the Emperor??? Probably because I'm in a "flesh" mood for my minifigs these last weeks???!!!
Another explanation is that Palpatine enjoyed his trip in the private lounge so much that he looks healthy at the arrival  :laugh:  :laugh:

When I saw the set, it looked like it was an actual model, but then when I looked closely, I saw that it was LEGO! :oh: If this was a set I would buy it! :sweet:  I wish I built that model. :sad:! Very nice!  :thumbup:

I don't really understand, does this mean you are going to sell them? If you are going to sell them how much?

Yes, I will put a link on the shuttle's page in a few time. But remember I'm not TLC, just a guy who work alone, so this model is intended for serious collectors as it is very expensive. Much more than the 10179 for example.
Just check the page in a few days and you'll know.

Good idea, thanks a lot. I'm not a member of Rebelscum and have no good reason for that....  :grin:

PS On Rebelscum forum you wrote "the interior needs more attention"! Don't you like the Emperor's lounge or is it because I didn't ad a bar with topless waitress?  :tongue:

I think Palpatine would have a jacuzzi and a pool table :)

To be serious I think the colour scheme you picked is more Chancellor Palpatine than Emperor Palpatine. Compare his office in AOTC or ROTS to the throne room in ROTJ and you'll see what I mean.

At the very least there should be a throne on board the shuttle.
