    I bought a MISB TIE Crawler, and a few of the blue pieces were discolored or warped or brittle. Everything else was perfect, but some blue bricks were difficult to get to snap on, and the two blue turntable bases broke. Is this characteristic of whatever plastic TLG uses for older blue bricks?

    Has anybody ever received a set with a broken bag inside? I just built the FO star destroyer, and one bag was broken open with loose pieces inside the box, but no minifigures or pieces are missing (I just finished building), and the hole didn't look man-made, so it can't be a thief.
  3. The Solo range actually looks to be pretty complete - other than the weird TIE, Dryden, and L3 (all of which are in the trailer) everything that would be a feasible set is covered.

    Constrictor II - Imperial Interdictor (w Instructions)

    Finally! Very excited for this. Looks beautiful! I won't be buying instructions yet (I still have to finish getting your plus-sized AT-AT together before I commit to a new project), but I'm looking forward to this. Aggressor was a little too big for me to take on, but this is perfect. Thank you so much for doing this (and to Legolijntje of course for the instructions).
  5. Here's a picture from the Mimban page on Wookieepedia - it looks like mudtroopers actually do walk around with masks up, and it's not just Han-specific. Looking at the other picture I feel like it would be hard to recreate the mask-down look even with a new mould. I think our best bet would be to use a visor-down printed head from an AT-ST driver/Navy trooper and add the respirator piece from batman or similar. I bet rangetrooper is coming and it'll use a new print of tank/shoretrooper helmet; it seems too easy for TLG to pass on it.
  6. I wouldn't mind the angry clone head if it were totally hidden by helmets, but it's not. On stormtroopers you can still see the flesh color where there should be black. If they just had black printing or something covering the neck area I wouldn't mind, but I hate seeing the neck like that. It's even worse with TIE pilots, where the entire back of the head is visible. As seen in Rebels (and kind of in ANH), stormtroopers just have black collars, while TIE pilots actually wear balaclavas. Now, I actually like the old clone head, since we see many clones without helmets, but angry clone head for stormtroopers just bothers me.
  7. Yeah - it's one thing if they don't want to give a helmet with a visor, but if that's the case they should take advantage of the headprint opportunities. We could have a face with visor on one side and no visor on the other side.

    LDD hasn't been updated since 2016, when that piece was relatively new. Unfortunately, there are many pieces missing from the program.

    Thanks! Yeah, the designs are primitive, but just for nostalgia it seems like a fun project.

    Are the standard TIE fighters included in 10131 TIE Fighter Collection exactly the same as other TIE sets, such as 7263 or 7146? I'm considering bricklinking the collection, but since I only need 1 TIE I'm wondering if I can just subtract the parts list from 7263.

    The 2013 AT-TE is nice on the exterior, but the interior is much more cramped. As the instructions have it, you can fit one minifigure in the cockpit, one on top, and two in the back comfortably. I've reworked mine to fit a couple in the front body and six in the back, but it's not a comfortable fit, and it's hard to access them. It's a nice set, but I don't see why it would be at all superior to the older one, unless being smaller is a plus for you.

    [MOD] Republic TX-130 Saber Tank

    Really nice! I thought this would be a great idea, but it seemed like too much trouble. Glad someone else did it - your modifications look really nice. I might have to try it myself now!

    The reason why nobody responded is because you didn't attach the files or link to the original thread, so we couldn't easily test it for you. Anyway, after hunting down the original thread I downloaded the files and couldn't open them either, so it's not a problem on your end. My guess is the file is from an old version of LDD and isn't compatible or something, but I'm no LDD expert. Neither of those members is active anymore, but you'll be able to PM them once you have 10 posts I think. For anyone else trying to answer this question, I think it's this thread.

    Star Wars Midifigure Revival

    Very nice! About how big are these (in size and number of pieces)? They look much better than the pseudo-midifigures in the marvel sets.
