    This'll be controversial, but seeing that screen shot next to the minifigure makes me think that helmet looks a bit small and that maybe one of the new ones would be more accurate!

    Now that helmet is on firestar, I've got zero reason to get the advent calendar this year. Thanks for the heads up!

    Free (almost) light up sabers

    S few weeks ago, I noticed an add on FB for lightup Lego lightsabers from a Hong Kong based seller which were free for a limited offer. Clicking through the link revealed you had to pay postage (about £2.70) but that you could then get up to 8 different colour sabers free of charge. I was extremely skeptical but thought it was worth a £3 point, especiallywhen paying with PayPal. A couple of weeks later and they've turned up (as have a few more people's from the FB group). They're powered via USB with super thin wires going into the bottom of the hilt, and brilliantly the red blade is even a gun metal grey hilt whereas all the others are LBG. Obviously none of the pieces are official Lego. Anyway, here they are. Obi Wan volunteered to model the various colours.

    Could be a case of firestar to the rescue again then. His tache is a bit more prominent IRL.

    Death Star 75159 Modifications

    When the Death Star re-release first went public, this forum was full of people midnight about the blocky curves and saying that it would have been super easy for Lego to produce smooth curves. However, I have yet to see anyone actually show this apparently simple mod, which would suggest it's not so simple after all! I'd love to see someone sorry out the blocky walls. I think simply tiling them all would immediately make a big difference but I've just never gotten round to it.

    Don't know if I'm the first to say this, but the new Harry Potter wands left on their sprue make a pretty good Kalikori -that thing the Hera was always trying to retrieve in Rebels.

    Trying to put some more Cloud Riders together, but the head pieces are going to be the main issue. Thinking about Killmongers mask for Baroosh Pawl. Tubes should be doable with a plain pearl silver head and a hood. Does anyone have any ideas for the others? Are there any China/Nexo knights/Ninjago pieces that would be good?

    Sorry -can't get rid of quote box for some reason... Few Solo minifigure updates: Fur collar, vambraces and waist cape for Enfys Trench coat for Beckett - colour matches him much more in real life! Printed arms for patrol troopers Kamas for range trooper

    This head is pretty much perfect (although I'd prefer a slightly sterner face). Typically enough, it appeared the day after my latest firestar order went in! Still haven't found hair that I'm happy with for her though.

    Moderators - please delete if not appropriate... Argos have their regular 3 for 2 deal starting today in the UK and much to my surprise it includes the new sets after only a couple of days of release. Big savings to be made if you're clever about your purchases!

    Does anyone have a definitive answer on the availability of the new landing craft in the uk? Is it exclusive to any particular shop Or is it going to be widely available?have a nice amount t of VIP points to use, but don't want to waste them if it turns up £20 cheaper somewhere else soon.

    Finally pulled the trigger on these today after seeing your photos (plus had a firestar discount code!). Starting off with Greedo, 5x blue squadron and 20x stormies... will see where it takes me, but i suspect this is a slippery slope!

    Definitely the first head - the freckles seal the deal. I'm going to keep searching in the hair.

    Vambraces look great (learnt a new word!). I'm pretty happy with the gunners fur o Dr the official cape town keep the two-sided effect. My next issue is a head and hair for Enfys - I can't find anything to suit on firestar. Any ideas?

    I thought this too. I have the conveyex but haven't opened it yet, so will post a pic when I do. Firestar also do some waist capes which I thought might look good (despite the colour not being perfect). https://www.firestartoys.com/Shop/Minifigure-Bodywear/Custom-Design-Minifigure-Capes/42845-Custom-Design-Cape-~-Waist-Armour-~-Reddish-Brown.html Update: it actually looks pretty good. My impetialgunner is going to have to put up with a cold neck!
