[MOD] Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle - black and mean

Recommended Posts

It was about a year ago and it was my very first, long (3 waves of bricklink orders) and enjoyable try on building something big and different than official Lego set. I started with the idea of just fixing the "wings problem" and replacing all light blueish gray pieces for mostly black ones. The inspiration for the construction for that came from Rebel Builder's technic hinges technique (credits!). When I was done I realized it is so majestic, it really deserves to be in black. And there it is... :) I made lots of different modifications both in wings and fuseloge. They are mostly not visible but very important to make it sturdy enough not to come apart during play with the wings position. And I was happy to manage the goal. What I was really proud of were the guides for the wings that prevent them from wobbling in any position or direction. The very front part with the mean red windows is designed as in Jang's version of this MOD (BIG Up Jang!). I do not know if I made it the same way as he did, but the shape is, as far as i recognize, the same and in my opinion absolutely perfect. I would really recommend this MOD to everyone, because the end result is much more than pleasing. Of course if you do not own 75104 and want to built the black beast, don't buy official Lego set, because you would replace most of parts.

Nice! certainly looks better than the original!

Happy you like it! And once again: I've done lots by myself but credits go also to Rebel Builder and Jang.

@barneius Great work! You inspired me to make my own Command Shuttle - check how I made a instruction in LDD :)

Haha :laugh: Thanks! 

Now, I'll take a little break, build this Command Shuttle and prepare to next, probably UCS project... 4000-6000 parts I think :classic: 

In this time, you can slowly build AT-M6 :classic:

Looks FANTASTIC barneius!

I did the same project shortly after the original 75104 released - just couldn't handle all the inaccuracies :wall:  With mine, I chose to leave some dark grey elements here and there just to accent all the black.

And it's too bad because 75104 really had the potential to be a GREAT set!  This command shuttle design is one of the most glaring examples of the challenge toy companies face with very secretive and changing movie scripts - Hasbro REALLY got it wrong:laugh:   A predominantly black ship with tilting wings (without those flaps on the bottom) would have been perfect!  Oh well...maybe in a re-design some day.

Thank you! Actually I've just finished LDD designing of a true MOC of this spectacular vessel. The size is not much bigger, yet the proportions and detailing are at a completely different level. It is 2500 pieces, so it fits well within UCS standards. I think I'll be ready to present it in January. Stay tuned :)
