  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. [MOC] Project: Endor

    This creation deserves a complete room, glass cabinet and security guards around in a museum so it can be admired properly.
  4. [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.
  5. [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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. 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.
  9. Favorite MicroFighters

    Millennium Falcon, which was a gift from my girlfriend and the return from my dark ages.
  10. What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    I was just wandering around Bricks & Pieces and had to order some of the new hair pieces for Han and other bits. Didn't know they were available.
  11. [MOCs] The Workhorse and the Racehorse of the Rebel Fleet

    Sir, that is the most beautiful Workhorse I have ever seen. I am almost tempted to try to replicate it. In your expert opinion, does it worth the cost to purchase the latest one from TLG and mod it, or shuld I go directly to the secondary market?
  12. Improved Resistance Troop Transport 75140

    Thanks again for your nice comments. I understand what you say about the cabin and I can't find a way to make it more accurate. I will think about it, but in the meantime I have made some more minor mods. Landing gear! It is not pretty, it is not very useful, but it is retractable and it works. I had to cover the missiles. And this is how the landing gear was done, using what I have at hand.
  13. Improved Resistance Troop Transport 75140

    Thank you for your comments, Japanbuilder. Now that you mention the film model I was looking for some good pictures to compare and continue improving the Lego model if possible, but I was able to find only this picture. Aside from the colors and landing gear I think the model is very accurate. I have to add one plate with handle to the floor of the cabin, and I wil start thinking about a landing gear using the technic pieces between each module.
  14. Updating Your Minifigs

    Thank you very much, added to my wanted list!
  15. I was not interested in this set until I saw it half priced. I intended to buy it as a cheap source of pieces but I ended liking it a lot and spending time modifying it to make it cooler. Yes, it is that good. Most of the changes were done for aesthetic reasons, like filling gaps, adding tiles or the steering bar for the pilot. Changing how the top part opens was a must because the original hinges took away too much of the interior space. I will let the pictures speak by themselves. The mods are not too difficult to replicate, but let me know if you would like to see more pictures or further explanations. I hope you liked it.
