  1. What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Picked up the AT-M6 today, there were four stocked above the $38 walker price tag at Walmart and the store honored it!
  2. What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    TRU A-Wing & R3-M2 free with purchase. Kylo Ren's TIE Fighter and Scarif Stormtrooper polybag from the Lego Store Resistance Transport Pod. Honestly I'm not even done yet!
  3. This is an incredibly beautiful and dense set. I'll be there during VIP Access!
  4. What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Took my daughter to school and stopped at a Walmart to check for TLJ- picked up a Praetorian Guard Buildable figure. Then the Quadjumper on clearance. Can't wait to build it!
  5. What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    The Republic Fighter Tank- A great selection of minifigures! Rathar Escape- Was a fun build and I love the assortment of minifigs Luke's Landspeeder- A must have classic. The build was fast and fun Microfighter Resistance X-Wing- Bought for Greg Grunberg and a nice assortment of parts!
  6. This is a silent work in progress teaser for a series of shorts exploring different eras in Star Wars, I would truly appreciate any suggestions! Thank you!

  8. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I'm not convinced; can't source the image. But if it is, a beauty.
  9. Grievous' Combat Speeder first appeared in The Clone Wars episode 'A Necessary Bond' from season five, it's a part of a really solid arc and I'm thrilled to build it! Plus Grievous and Mace with new printing. Yoda's Hut is iconic, and Luke in Bespin fatigues and an OT printing for Yoda is exciting. I have nothing negative to say about the battle packs, love Jawas, Jedi, and clones! Four more The Last Jedi sets before the end of the year, too!
  10. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    There's frankly too much unknown at this point. It is going to be a splendid set, deserving of the attention to detail Lego is giving. The trickle of weekly announcements has also been fun! I'm comfortable with whatever price, I'll pick this up as soon as it's available to VIP members! There's a lot left this year, too, with The Last Jedi, and I'll definitely be taking advantage of Force Friday Double VIP points! lol
  11. (MOD) 75155 U-Wing

    Excited to share my first mod on a set; the U-Wing! It's small compared to other efforts, but I'm just getting started. I'll also have a video if I'm allowed to share that. Anyway, I've added a second pilot seat, removed unnecessary technic to allow more space in the transport, and extended the wings from 40 studs long to 44 studs long. Then additional greebling, replaced stud shooters, and changed the rear top behind the cockpit to remove the pop open feature and add detail. I would love to hear thoughts and feedback! Thanks! Removed the cockpit pop open play feature to add detail, greebling and accuracy. Since I wasn't changing the base hull of the ship, I took inspiration from the Republic Gunship to add a second pilot seat. Another view of the two pilots. The additional pilot now "floats" in the lower window. A very simple dark gray plank with a slope piece for flare allows a second pilot without altering the width of the set. Underside view of the transport window showing additional plank for second pilot. Larger view of underside. The transport with the second pilot fitted on; stud shooters have been removing, now acting as weapon racks, and technic poles have been removed to free up some space. After removing the technic bar a simple detail piece from the Millennium Falcon was placed in the center. Closer view of the pilot The original printed tile was placed on a flat piece to free up space, and two additional yokes were added. An upright view of the yokes. ___________________________________ May the Force be with you!
  12. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Everything I've been told says it has an interior.
  13. So happy I haven't purchased any of the Phase II Clonetroopers from resellers. I'll be amassing an army of those battlepacks
  14. What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Picked up the U-Wing, Yoda's Jedi Starfighter, AT-ST, and the Rebels Medical Frigate! Really excited to build the frigate and making some modifications to the U-Wing.
  15. Updating Your Minifigs

    I purchased the Lego Ninjago Movie City Chase set for my daughter and fell in love with Lloyd's new hair piece; it's perfect for my Jedi Master Luke Skywalker figure. All I had to do was trade her Luke's original hairpiece. Still looking for a fabric color that matches the cloak from the end of TFA.
