  1. Cool! The cockpit looks much better with actual armor than with a sticker. Did you make any mods to the interior? I love to see different approachs to the same initial model.

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Got the new Sandcrawler this morning via Amazon with 12% discount so I have something to do during holidays.
  3. I thought my little mod was not popular so I'm glad it serves as an inspiration for your transport, which I have to say has an impressive amount of details and features for such a limited number of bricks. I remember there was not a lot of info about this ship, but the awkward look of the cockpit is due to the heavy armor. In fact, the pilot had to rely on holograms as the armor plates blocked the view almost completely.

    Buy it now, visit the thread in this very forum about several modifications some us made and start having tons of fun. This is the set which provide me some of the best Lego moments in my life, right after good old 7965 MF.

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    I just ordered the new Tatooine BP from S@H, along with some keychains and microfighters. They said new sets will be available from January, 2 but I entered today and was able to order. I received confirmation email and my orderis at warehouse now.

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    I just ordered the Quadjumper via Amazon with a discount equivalent to the triple VIP points I would receive if ordered via TLG. In Spain TLG offers that poster with the new gigantic MF but no minifigures, so I chose the discount from Amazon.

    Improved Resistance Troop Transport 75140

    Let me introduce you THE POD! After checking the leaked pictures from the new Resistance Transport Pod set 75176 I wanted to try to implement (at least some) of the new play features to my good old smaller pod from 75140. Of course the previous improvements remain so I will focus on the new additions. The detached pod look like this. New guns on the side. Replaced the technic disc with a much easier to activate piece in order to open the cockpit. A larger technic plate 1x3 was used as the height of the pod is one plate higher now. If you remove the side panel you will find a tray with a gun. Remove the top to find an old round friend. This red thingy looks menacing. There are three "layers" in the back. The lower one houses the missile, the middle one the tray with the gun and the top one space for BB-8. When not in use the new guns can be stored behind the "gun pod" and almost out of sight. Why not to free tthe inner space in this pod as well? There is barely space for a minifig and a control panel. It was fun to find a way to implement even more play features in such a limited space. I hope you like it.

    [MOC] Project: Endor

    This creation deserves a complete room, glass cabinet and security guards around in a museum so it can be admired properly.

    [MOC] [WIP] ESB Bounty Hunter scene.

    Only 4—Lom and Bossk are from the latest battle pack. My Dengar was built with separate parts I bricklinked from different sellers. I may have to update Boba's legs at some point, as they seem a bit plain without any printing.

    [MOC] [WIP] ESB Bounty Hunter scene.

    Very nice display, I wish I had enough space to make something similar. Regarding Zuckuss, I had to built my own version. Not the best solution but it will do until the official minifig is released.

    Improved Resistance Troop Transport 75140

    Thank you! Thank you very much, Yes, I considered the use of bucket handles, but as the steering bar was designed to be properly grabbed by minifig hands and there is enough space inside the cabin I decided to use it instead. I don't discard to use bucket handles in other projects, although I prefer the use of minifig hands and bars like this.

    Improved Resistance Troop Transport 75140

    So I finally built an armored canopy. I'm very happy with the look achieved, and athough it's different than the movie design I think it's better than the official sticker. The canopy can be opened as before but I changed the disk for a plate with is more easy to push, and made the side door openable as well. If you want to replicate this mods and need instructions just let me know. Cheers!

    REVIEW: 40268 R3-M2

    I got two of each that way, and bricklinked the legs. I can't understand Bricks and Pieces policy but it's great when you can find this kind of offers.
