Today I've been reading up on our forums history and I feel over a few topics on instructions.
There's a guy on Brickshelf, who's kindly put instructions for his creations in his folder.
Also a lot of members have asked for instructions for promotionals and so on.
This topic is intended for posting found or asked for instructions.
When you've posted a link or a full instruction, I'll add it to the 1st post.

The 6968 was to my knowledge a Star Wars mini set that never made it to production.
They're only allowed a certain number of sets each year and this one got "cut".
I've dug this one up on my own pc yesterday and I've actually uploaded it to my BS instructions folder an hour ago or so.
I'll edit your post to have the set number for future reference.

EDIT: 10144 Sandcrawler Instructions Error

Hello everyone, tomorrow it's my birthday, and my girlfriend offered me the 10144 set so I built it this morning, but when I was building it, at the step 30 , I thought I did everything wrong because of this :
Posted Image
on this image, we can clearly see that the roof we just put on it is at 1stud of the border, but when I tried to put my roof on it, it was just as larger as the body of the sandcrawler, so there were no stud left, and because I'm maniac I checked all the construction steps to see If I did anything wrong, but I didn't,  the manual is just wrong.

so the good result must look like this :
Posted Image
on every pictures I found on internet, and on my own construction, it look like this, and it perfectly fits with the set.

It took me a little less than an hour to check all the construction steps, I post it to avoid other peoples that buy this set to do the same.

I had the same problem like you and in the same step  :tongue: , I am a perfectionist too and well I checked the last 10 steps back, look some pics in the internet and check the box art of my box to be sure I am right  :laugh: . The only strange thing that happened to me is that the 3 jawas have different eyes: 2 yellow and one orange. Is this common?

I don't know, all My jawas have yellows eyes. the second thing that I thought strange was the remaining pieces after the construction, It were usual pieces like little 1x1 pieces but ... I also had a 1x8 brown plate left! I tried to figure if I didn't forget one somewhere... but it seems that I built it correctly, I'm feeling lucky !!^^

If it's of any consultation, I did the exact same thing.

You should look forward to the new Death Star and the riffles on first floor  :wink:

If you have the Sandcrawler, you just got to have Death Star!

The suspense has to be killing you. Are you really sure about not wanting to have the DS? Anything can happen at a day like tomorrow, right?  :sweet:


The DS has an error as well all right. That was quite easy to guess. It is, however, of a different kind.  :devil:

My Girlfriend offered me that sandcrawler for my Birthday, But I actually do not have a job, so I don't have money, so I can't even think of buying some lego by myself, and sadly, a birthday only happens once a year ^^ but that's not the point here ^^

Wow I didn't even notice that error, I guess my eyes just looked past it, although I was more frustrated by the floor constantly falling out :hmpf_bad: But good eyes, as this is good for anyone new sandcrawler owners so they can keep a look out.

I thought the error on the Sandcrawler was common knowledge. If you didn't saw it when building it, you weren't paying attention.
About the DS, let me gues, ROTJ in the first DS?

It's not a common knowledge when you just bought it after coming out of your dark age ^^ It really took me a while to understand that I was right and the manual was wrong !

Wew I am glad it just wasn't me.......I see the same type of optical issue with the larger city sets as well.

At least I am not alone.
Do I have a signature?

Thanks to Shimon: http://www.eurobrick...?...c=21416&hl=

Now take a look at how the guns are hanging on the first floor: The slopes below are actually overlapping the weapons and you have to angle them in order to make them fit.

This is a strange error, given that the set has been built lots of times during the production phase.
Perhaps the design of the guns was changed afterward, just like the grille on the 7733 forklift roof?
