    Fabulous SW knockoff set...

    Just found this little gem, look at it: http://olx.pl/oferta/klocki-space-wars-272-elementy-kompatybilne-z-klockami-lego-CID88-ID9voX1.html#cc5c2e6b0f Obi-Wan fighting Revan instead of Grievous... How cool is that? XD If there is a topic on LEGO Star Wars knockoffs already, please merge.

    [LDD] - Minifig-Scale Azure Angel

    Not bad, even though I'd certainly have some trouble recognizing this ship. I think I like the official set version better.

    [MOC] UCS A-Wing

    WOW, looks amazing... Amazing and 100% accurate. I wonder how different color versions would look like...

    LEGO Star Wars 2015 Pictures and Rumors

    Whoa, whoa, whoa! When did I insult/belittle/humiliate/harass other members exactly? I didn't attack anyone personally. I adressed an issue and was called a kid and a troll just because my opinion seems unpopular. If anyone has the rights to feel offended here, it's me. I also feel bad when people bash the constraction figures, which I really like. So, is it okay to hate on them but not on TFA? You've got a point here. However, the changes seem so minor I feel it's just for the sake of aesthetics, not functionality. If both sides of the conflict were really short on money, they shouldn't have done any changes at all. The gap between the prequels and ANH is just 19 years and the progress is amazing, so that's not really a good argument. The white solar panels on TIEs might be justified (new material - more efficient or durable?), but I'd rather see something different this time. Give me the Chiss clawcraft or Predator-class fighter, just rename them, like they did with AT-AR (calling it "AT-DP" and putting it in Rebels), I can't really complain on the LEGO sets despite having no interest in the Disney reboot. At least we could have something fresh, never before seen in the movies, yet familiar-looking at the same time (the "eyeball" cockpit). Sadly, what we'll most likely get is a standard TIE redesigned to look more smexy... Sure, I may seem bitter, but I still have problems accepting the fact that what brought me back to Star Wars - the original canon EU/Legends universe - is discontinued in favor of shows for children and pointless reboots. For me, episodes VII, VIII and IX will forever be the Thrawn Trilogy and Dark Empire. I really tried to stay as optimistic as the most of you and hype for Episode VII, but there were instances in the past when I was super excited for a movie and analyzed every frame of a trailer only to get extremely disappointed a few months later. Try to understand and respect it. Okay, I think I've said enough. No more complaints for a while.

    Thanks for making me feel young again, lol. I honestly thought the new canon (TCW, Rebels) is the immature "kiddie" stuff, but this is just my opinion and you have the rights not to agree with it. What I was trying to say is: the vehicles look 99% the same as the ones in OT, just like new models of Iphones are almost indistinguishable to me. People tend to get angry when redesigns of sets we already had pop up, but suddenly can't wait for new x-wings and TIE fighters just because they are marketed under the TFA logo. Let's face it: Episode VII is there just to help sell the same stuff over and over again. The prequels at least came with a variety of new and original designs that often were "linked" to the stuff we knew, looked familiar but at the same time managed to stay unique - ARC-170 -> X-wing; V-wing, Jedi interceptor -> TIE fighter; Venator, Acclamator - > Imperial-class ISD... Not to mention the droid army vehicles, which totally got me with how creative and interesting they were. Once again: this is just my opinion. You can go ecstatic over the Rebels and TFA as much as you want, but don't try to steal my rights to be here and complain as much as I want. Peace.

    Why are you even so excited about the TFA sets? Its the same old stuff over and over again, just with a few cosmetic changes that don't really make any difference. Examples? Here you go: An X-wing with slightly modified wings and engines? WOW, how original. A Lambda shuttle that looks like it lost the central wing? WOW, how original. TIE fighters with white and not black solar panels? WOW, how original! A star destroyer that looks exactly like Imperial-class ISD? Darth Revan with a different name, a silver stromtrooper/Boba Fett wannabe? Hype hype hype hype hype! The new teaser trailer? BOOOOOOOORING! Believe me or not, I really got bored watching it. I don't even remember getting bored watching a trailer for a movie since a certain Korean sci-fi horror flick, can't remember the title.

    Wow, the Infiltrator looks... awful. Absolutely awful. Now I really regret not getting the previous one.

    LEGO Star Wars 2015 Pictures and Rumors

    So maybe you could go hype somewhere else? In Culture and Multimedia, perhaps? Sorry if this sounds rude, but I have zero interest in this upcoming movie and I'm already tired of reading tons of posts about it in this topic, which should be about LEGO sets only.

    Elves 2015

    So... They are, like, benders and Emily Jones is, like, the new Avatar? Ad the Elves must, like, teach her how to bend all four elements? I must say I really like the looks of this theme! So magical...

    Do different "planet" pieces connect without problems? I was thinking about using two bottom halves of the Death Star to make the head of a Tri Droid - is it even possible?

    The shuttle looks really nice, even though the cockpit seems a bit too big. Constraction Vader is awesome - an instant buy for me! Not so sure about Luke, though. Constraction system fits droids, cyborgs and characters who wear armor (remember, we'll be getting Jango Fett, Grievous and Cody as well!), but regular human characters not so much. Luke's head is markhamillish enough, but the rest of the body, expecially the crotch area, seems kinda lackluster.

    [Review]: 75079 - Shadow Troopers

    Did the speeder actually appear in the game or is it something comp;etely made-up by LEGO?

    Is it confirmed that the WOLF stuff are EPVII sets? I remember seeing the codename WOLF on some concept sketches for Rebels a while ago...

    Well, he died in the destruction of the first Death Star and even if he survived he was already old by the time, the new trilogy taking place 30 years after ROTJ - highly unlikely...

    Best non UCS AT-ST produced by LEGO?

    Because it's an AT-DP, not an AT-ST?

    My 2nd entry for the LUGPol microfighters style building contest. Hope you like this one.

    SPHA-T microfighter

    Built for LUGPol Star Wars microfighter style building contest. Why the SPHA-T? Well, I noticed TLG has never released this tank in any form, so I took the chance to build something original.

    Should I destroy me Orc Forge?

    Whenever I need to borrow some pieces from an assembled set I really like, I store the rest of it (in larger chunks, if possible) in a box or plastic bag and keep it separate from the rest of my collection.

    Green Squadron A-Wing

    Oh. Really? Guess I didn't pay enough attention. Most of the Google Graphics search results showed an A-Wing that was... well... green.

    SPHA-T microfighter

    Thanks for all the positive feedback, guys. I really appreciate it.

    Buy the parts. The 75014 version of the viper probe droid is a lot better than 7666, though. It's much more accurate - rewatch the movie or check out some photos.

    Whoa, this is so simple yet so ingenious. Thank you for your reply. What do you generally think of the set? Is it worth buying while still available? Or should I buy an X-wing microfighter to get a pilot and BL the pieces to build my own version?
