    LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

    Sadly I can confirm that Lego Stores will not be receiving store exclusives but they will be available on Lego Shop@Home. Least that's what I know for US stores anyway. It's pretty disappointing in my own opinion.

    Bootleg Super Heroes minifigs - worth it or not?

    Hi! I've been following this topic off and on and I recently got my chance to see a bootleg Falcon Capt. up close and it looked and felt like the real Lego. It was crazy. So I want to jump in and start getting these cool figs but I'm not sure what stores on AliExpress are legit and safe to buy from? I know some brands are better than others (DeCool is the best, right?) but I would appreciate if any of you with more experience could point me in the right direction. Thanks!!!

    Battle Packs - Better models?

    I think BPs could be made better if they made the vehicles based off of things seen in the movies or at least from other media like games ,tv shows, and etc. The FO BP is one of my favorites because the turret is very similar to the Death Star ones from the OT Imo and the figures aren't too bad either (though I don't think we needed another Gunner but whatever). In all honesty, after taking a look of all the BPs they've made, I like most of them. There's 8084 and 9489 that look a little light on parts but they come with speeder bikes which are always welcome. I love their mini walkers from 8014 and 75089 but I love Imperial walkers so maybe that's just me (also I modified them to make them more gray). 75034 is a great model with great exclusive figures (wish I bought more!). Even some of the worst BPs like 75134 and 75079 can be modified to be made a little better but honestly the figures are the selling point for sure. Well that all of my ramblings for now. :)
  5. Wow, great customs everyone! I gotta say that even though Star Wars is something I'm more into, I do like my Superheroes too (well more like villains) and I have made some of my own Purist figs. Haven't taken pics of all of them yet but I would like to share one of my personal favorites with you. Poison Ivy by AJV777, on Flickr I only got the first version of Poison Ivy and haven't gotten my hands on the newer variants and to be honest, I think the first is my favorite except the hair Lego gave her was terrible IMO. So I used an extra Ariel hair piece from the Disney Minifigure series and thought her hair would give my old Poison Ivy a nice updated look. What do you guys think? :)
  6. Less than a month away in a galaxy near us all comes the next installment to the star wars saga! This is my own trailer for The Force Awakens. Star Wars The Force Awakens Lego Trailer by AJV777, on Flickr Thanks to Lord Blako for letting me use his awesome Kylo Ren Saber sound fx https://www.youtube....BlakoSaberFonts and to SGTBizarro for Music from the official trailer without sound fx https://www.youtube....user/SGTBizarro Hope you all like and stay tuned for more! :D
  7. Yes it is actually. Glad you like the story so far and enjoyed it. Yeah I've noticed that and it's crazy Imo how that happens. Besides that, I strive to improve on all fronts and I hope it will show in future installments. :)

    I have been hearing about the new microfighters and I was wondering which ships and characters are they going to be? Thanks!

    LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

    Wow I'm really liking what I've seen with the new sets so far even if they're on the small side (better for my wallet I suppose). I can't believe how great the Rebel (and Resistance) packs are overall with their great selection of figs and pretty nice vehicles too. The Empire (and First Order) are pretty good but I don't think we needed another ground crew in the FO pack. Really wanted another flame trooper. The Gun looks...ok. Might warm up to it. Also not liking the model for the Empire BP either. But enough complaining since I'll probably try to buy them all anyway. lol Might be for star wars if I'm not mistaken, but Chima is one theme I know that does it all the time.

    Oh good! If that's the case then it shouldn't be too long until I can begin army building them. xD Also hopeful them that the Resistance BP with be just as good as the Rebel BP from Battlefront.

    The OT storm troopers are quite nice but even if you were to get all the sets they appeared in (Star Destroyer,Slave 1, Advent Calendar) you'd only have only 4 in total. So army building them is not easy. Was hoping they'd be in the new Battle Packs but doesn't seem to be the case. As for the Rebels storm troopers, I didn't like them that much at first but they are easier to army build and way better than the old ones so...yeah I have a small army of them now. xD On an unrelated note: Lego needs to release a Episode 7 Storm Trooper Battle Pack. Just got the transport and I want more of these awesome troopers!

    My tiny modification of AT-DP

    "Tiny"!? More like "Super Articulate" Modification! Great job! Would love to know how you made it so I could perhaps make mine articulate as well. :)
  13. These are all really nice! I love how you modified the Imperial Shuttle! The Ties are great as well! :)

    This is really nice! The techniques you used really do give it a bat symbol kinda look. Great MOC! :)
