  1. Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    Always wanted to see a big and detailed version of either the Outrider or the Virago from Shadows of the Empire.

    @GryffindorResistance, there are 2 now open, one for legitimate news on sets, one for the discussion of said sets. Info is pinned on the front page btw.
  3. [MOC] Project: Endor

    Totally epic display piece, congratulations on your perseverance and the finished build. Work this well done seriously deserves a permanent display place so it can be admired.
  4. Greetings everyone, I have been reading through @mortesv's threads concerning his fleet and by default all the different building threads for the respective ships being built by other members and the building experiences that go with it for a long time now and have to say that I have been thoroughly impressed by the hard work that has gone into them all. I really love the Nebulon-B build and much as I would like to, I wouldn't have the room to build and display it without my better half getting really miffed, so decided to be slightly less ambitious and was following the Tantive thread hoping that the instructions would eventually become available (I wouldn't have had the first idea where to start building the CR90 without some serious help) as I love the ship and it reminds me so much of my childhood years and what started my love affair with Star Wars in the first place. So when @EKae started this thread and a with a little help from @ecmo47 this became a bit of a no brainer for me. I have now sourced all the parts for the ship and am really looking forward to building it, although it may take me a bit of time as I'm a bit of an LDD virgin and haven't built anything from the instructions that it provides so there is a possibility of the air being a bit blue near my place for a while. All in all though, I would like to thank you all for providing the varying degrees of help (even if you didn't know you were providing it) to build a truly beautiful version of this ship and a really big thanks to @mortesv. I salute you sir. You are an inspiration to what can be done with the humble brick.

    Quite pleased that there may be an updated Yoda's Hut but after the obligatory play features are included, €30 doesn't seem like a lot of money to do justice to such an important set piece.

    I don't think there would be any way of telling on just the lever part as there are no distinguishing marks on them that i can see (although old eyes may have missed it), I suppose it would have to be taken on faith that if the lever came in a LEGO stamped base that it was the genuine article.

    The Yellow technic 5x5 right angle (part 32555) are a lot cheaper in black. The hoses (3 different lenghs), most of the tiles and the 3 x 2 wedge bricks I brought from Bricks and Pieces or Pick A Brick as they were a lot cheaper (at the time) by the time shipping had been taken into consideration. The LBG 6.6 bar with stop ring (part 4095) are blooming expensive, especially in the quantity required, I brought part 63965 bar 6l with stop ring instead. Most other bits that i chaged were either newer mold variations for discontinued parts or certain parts in Light Grey instead of LBG (the main one being the small levers (part 4592c05) as there are sixty of them, brought any colour base possible with Light grey levers then swapped them out into LBG bases). I also chose to do scottishdave's engine mod, just because it looks better. Hope this is of help.

    jsharp13 when building mine i used the yellow connectors as they are for the ring around the centre so are not visible but infinitely cheaper. As for the grey levers and bases, i went through bricklink and brickowl and brought any coloured base with the old light grey levers (i think the blue bases were the easiest), then found a seller that was selling the LBG bases without the lever then swaped the bases. It was a lot cheaper way of getting more or less the right colour and unless you are really up close and personal with the DS they just get lost in a huge sea of grey. Also recommend going for DSG instead of Pearl Dark Grey technic beams for the stand (price again).

    Sadistic marketing at its best.

    It would be nice if the new X-Wing came with black rubber bands at the back so you could swap them over with the blue ones on 75102. At least then, if you have to put them on they will match colour schemes.

    I did think about trying to do something like this but the 6x16 modified tile is such a large tile and they only seem to do 4x4, 4x6 or the 6x12 in the type of tile that would give the same effect and I'm not entirely sure of the make up of the frame work underneath as to what would be best, will probably end up using 6x12 tiles with added plates at either end but was seeing if anyone else came across this problem when bricklinking the star destroyer and if anyone had overcome it without selling their grandma.
  12. Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    Yeah I was referring to the modified tile, I already intend to go down the colour change route with the engines as they are another part that you need a mortgage for. I wasn't to bothered about them though as I have seen alternate builds for those if the colour matching goes horribly wrong. The modified tiles are a bit more visual on the build so was wondering if anyone has tried any alternate parts to replace those parts without completely changing the look.
  13. Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    Good evening, I need a little help. Anyone have any good ideas of a suitable replacement for part 6205 in the set 10030 as these are extortionatly priced parts and are extremely hard to get hold of in lbg. I would like to keep the look of the build similar to the original but as I am already taking some detours with the project it does not have to be identical. Many thanks in advance.
  14. Review: 75094 Imperial Shuttle Tydirium

    Great review, enough so that I went and built my copy of the set. Really enjoyed the build, my only complaint with the set is if ever there was a set that needed a UCS style stand it's this one as it looks so much better displayed in flight mode.
  15. LEGO Star Wars 2015 Pictures and Rumors

    Evening all, newbie here, Have been reading these discussions with interest for a while now and while I am as interested in the new sets as anyone, being a cynical sort, I do wonder if when the sale of Lucas Film to Disney happened, certain embargos were placed on any licences that were transferred over. If the possibility of losing the licence if certain contractual obligations were not enforced I can fully understand why TLG an any other licence holders are keeping a lid on things.
