    ISD Intimidator, Monarch, or Eviscerator?

    You're welcome - I'm looking forward to a new version.

    ISD Intimidator, Monarch, or Eviscerator?

    It totally is. And Lucas specifically hired Kershner for the main shoot, so that he can focus on supervising the effects shoot himself - as seen in the photo you posted - since he realized that the effects shoot would be much more involving and complex than in A New Hope, and since the stress of supervising everything in A New Hope negatively impacted his health.

    ISD Intimidator, Monarch, or Eviscerator?

    They actually changed A LOT when they built a new studio model for ESB. From the texture to all small details to the shape of the guns and even the proportions. The model also was twice as big as the STD from the first movie. Apart from the basic shape and layout, the STDs from A New Hope and Rogue One are very different to those from ESB and RotJ. Also:The photo you posted with Lucas on the left side is not from the filming of A New Hope but from The Empire Strikes Back.

    These digital models are not as accurate as they seem when it comes to details. If you want to study the details of the original studio model used in ESB and RotJ, then reference good pictures of the original studio model. This is not to say that your model is flawed - it's amazing, actually. The original studio model: http://www.modelermagic.com/?p=59701

    Fraud MOC sellers.

    Where I come from, people who make a profit off someone elses work and effort without compensating or even acknowledging the original creator are called something describing a particular rear end of the human body with a hole in it through which waste is disposed of.

    75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017 MOD/MOC

    Long time no see... I finally pulled the trigger on this one when I saw it for slightly over 600 EUR, and I slowly but gradually MOC most major elements to give it cleaner lines, smoother plating and accurate detail. Here are a couple WIP-impressions:

    The Best 2015 LEGO Star Wars Minifigure Round 1.19

    I vote for Ahsoka! ...Oh, wait. No... Admiral Yularen it is!
  8. First of all, I'm happy Ahsoka won - both the character and the minifigure have earned that. Second - nice screencap from Jangbrick's review! I second that. Alternatively, instead of looking for the best minifigure of a particular year, you could make eliminations based on themes: Best Jedi Order minifig, best Sith minifig, best clone trooper minifig, best bounty hunter minifig, best rebel minifig; or make eliminations based on variants of single characters. There's a lot of potential here.
  9. Don't count on it. Ahsoka's story did not end on Malachor, and she will play a very important role further down the line.
  10. How long will this final voting round go to determine the winner?

    [MOC/Mod] Green 2 L'ulo L'ampar's RZ-1 A-Wing Interceptor

    Another beautiful rendition of my favorite rebel starfighter. I like how you have mirrored the wedge slopes on the front of the model. I also like how the fuselage directly behind the cockpit canopy is built and shaped - I will take a cue from this and re-visit my latest A-wing version to improve this part of the model accordingly. I only wonder if the engines in your version are abit too long. Making them a bit longer is a good call, since the engines of the official versions are all too short in comparison to the rest of the vehicle, but I think you maybe went a bit too far. Nonetheless - great model!

    [LDD] Mortesv's CR90 corvette (reverse-engineered version)

    Great to finally see some builds come together here. As for a faithful reproduction of the Tantive IV studio model, I've found one thing that could be changed. What I'm speaking of is the starboard (right) side of the Tantive IV - the section between the escape pod section and the docking rings. As for the port (left) side of that section, you find two narrow sloped and slanted fins or ridges going from the top and underside of the docking ring to the centre top and bottom end of the escape pod sections - represented on mortesv's great model by the angled flag pieces. On the starboard side, however, the lower fin (or ridge) does not go all the way to the centre bottom end of the escape pod section, but stops 2/3 of the way and meets a vertical fin or ridge. Interstingly enough, this leftover from the early design stages of the ship as the original Millenium Falcon was there to leave space for a large access hatch and was kept even after the studio decided to make the Blockade Runner Leia's larger ship, and has also been recreated faithfully on the digital Rogue One Tantive IV. The Clone Wars-model of the Tantive IV has 'corrected' this feature and left out that gap, and the covettes in the REBELS show do not have that gap, either. I wonder if the Roque One-versions of the corvettes from the REBELS show have that gap or not - but maybe this goes a bit too far with the detail. Just to play devil's advocate... It goes without saying that you do not absolutely need to incorporate this quirk into your model, I just want to point it out for those who do and missed that part until now as I did. https://www.google.de/search?q=tantive+iv&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&sqi=2&ved=0ahUKEwixpc2C6N_TAhXMDywKHXWaDGIQ_AUIBigB&biw=1024&bih=488#imgrc=2CtlripSI-S1MM: You can also see it on my screenshot from Rogue One on the page before in this thread.

    [LDD] Mortesv's CR90 corvette (reverse-engineered version)

    For my Corvette, yes, because its story is firmly rooted within the show. Just out of curiosity, I studied the Tantive IV as it is shown in Rogue One. At the end of the movie, there's a short scene where it directly passes the camera. Clicking through the quick sequence frame by frame, I was able to grab a screenshot where the starboard docking ring points directly at the camera. I know quite a bit about 3d models, perspectives etc. and how easy it is to get a wrong impression because of a slightly off-centre perspective, so I chose a structure to visually indicate when I had the correct frame - the docking apparatus on the lower end of the passenger lift section (in the red box). If you'd look at the frame directly before or after the chosen frame, the edges of the front and rear little cylinder of this apparatus are round because the camera is not pointed directly at its centre. In the frame I've chosen, they are straight - strongly suggesting that the vertical camera-axis is parallel to a vertical axis going through the apparatus' centre. Also, the round docking ring is perfectly at the centre of the cylinder in which it is housed. I don't need to be right, I just find it interesting. At the end of the day, this is a nitpick either way.

    No, it doesnt. I offset mine by the thickness of one plate...
