    10212 UCS Imperial Shuttle Mod

    Very nice Redbird! I did some MOC work on my copy of 10212 in Stud.io but haven't done anything with the model IRL since there's rumors of a new UCS shuttle coming. Whether or not that ends up being true is the big factor in me actually integrating the mods. The wings have been a sour point since I bought it last two years back. I always thought the mechanism left a lot to be desired, and I'm impressed to see you were able to move the motors to wing housings and hide the motors there. The clutch gear is needed, and I think the original model even needed some reduction mechanism, too. Are you going to test it on your model? I'll be curious if you do, and to see if this rumored new UCS model shares any similarities with the old one.

    [MOC] E-Wing Starfighter (Updated)

    I like this more than the brickvault one. There's something about how you achieved the nose shape that nails the aesthetic of the ship.

    [MOC] Customized Resistance B-Wing

    Killer! Something tells me that droid would become very dizzy with his whole body spinning around in addition to his rotating head!

    Maybe the Vader castle could be because of this new VR episodic game that's coming out concerning Vader? It's available to people with consumer grad VR headsets like the rift and vive, but it's still a bit surprising they'd base a set off of something literally few people know about. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqPWwz0yFkE&frags=pl%2Cwn

    [MOD] UCS Imperial Shuttle 10212 (WIP)

    Any updates to this? I like where you're going with some of your mods.

    The UCS Y Wing is a real great starter to aid in the building of mining scale Y wings. I might pick up a couple to help with my MOCs.

    I doubt they are going to force retire the cantina just because TRU is going under. Regardless of the retailer, Lego still sells all exclusives through their own web-store. Unless someone's got direct confirm that TRU exclusives are getting axed, the notion is just wild speculation.

    [MOC] Nym's Havoc - Scurrg H-6 Bomber

    Whooo! I've wanted someone to make one of these for awhile now! I worked on one for a bit but then gave up haha. Love it! I've been working on trying to build the Guardian Mantis but it has been slow. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Guardian_Mantis

    Interesting. Sir von lego was the AT RT cancelled because of stability issues or something to that effect? That's the only problem I initially thought when seeing the prelims...

    [MOC] [WIP] The Command of the AT-AT

    Just checking in and hope all is well! I'm currently working on recreating your excellently designed snow speeder. I've got a stud.io file complete just need to order parts. Have you worked on your AT AT in the last year? No doubt you had more important things to do. It's hard to make time for Lego anymore.

    I won't believe the rumors until we have more evidence, but the V19 set sounds like it's describing a republic attack shuttle rather than the V19 or a RGS.

    TIE Fighter & TIE Interceptor

    These are definitely next on the build list! Absolutley beautiful!

    Huh, as excited as I am that we are getting a new X-wing, I've got some serious reservations about it. It's great that they're finally modeling the correct sized engines and have the astromech in the correct seating position, but it just seems a little chubby around the astromech port. Also, I find it odd that they copied the same construction from the recent T70s for the laser canons as well as the forward fuselage. There's a lot of excellent new parts that have come out in the last few years that could achieve better shaping for the nose and fuselage and I find it somewhat strange that the designer didn't use them. I'm curious to see more of it at Toyfair and better assess it in hand when I buy one, or two, or more haha. The new sand crawler is pretty great. Ironically I was looking for a UCS one last week. Now the battle pack makes sense with the Jawas. The 501st construction figure with AT RT is really a neat inclusion. I didn't see that coming. What's the expected price on that? I'm thinking $80-100 USD? Also, are the sets coming out in August? That's what the catalogue states, but I remember last years summer wave came out around May - June in the US.
