  1. [MOC] Classical Theatre stage

    That is awesome, a great build and play features.
  2. A-Wing [MOC]

    This is my version of the iconic Rebel Alliance A-Wing as seen in Return of the Jedi. I have all the official Lego versions but have never been happy with their overall design of such an iconic ship (though the figure selection with each set has been outstanding). I went for a more "beat-up" sort of "used", "it's been a few fights" sort of color scheme, swapping out some of the white plates for a variety of colors to give her the idea that the Rebel Techs have had to scrounge for parts to keep her flying. For display purposes I had to use my display stand I built for my TIE Interceptor as my A-Wing is heavy and not balanced (she's rear heavy). I also wanted to finish this MOC up before The Last Jedi comes out as there are versions of the A-Wing in that movie as well which ultimately means I'll be building another A-Wing MOC at some point once more reference material is obtained. I'm not totally satisfied with the landing gear arrangement, so at some point I'm going to redesign how the skids are attached/deployed to the underside. Comments as always are welcome.

  3. A more elaborate Western House

    Nice design on the columns, seems so simple but adds a nice bit of texture and contrast.
  4. [MOC] 1989 Batwing

    Nice design and build
  5. Nice build and color usage...I always like when we AFOLers tend to make things seem more "used and battle worn" instead of one flat color. My only wish is that LEGO would've made a large cockpit glass piece for their U-Wing to use in MOCs.
  6. [MOC] Nexo Space

    Ingenious build with the dome and it's design. Maybe add some more color to it possibly?
  7. Original Trilogy Y-Wing MOC

    Great build!
  8. TIE Interceptor [MOC]

    This is my version of the iconic TIE Interceptor from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. I'm amazed that LEGO hasn't decided to update this creation themselves since 2006 with their release of 6206, especially after releasing 9492 (TIE Fighter) in 2012 which showcased almost movie accurate solar collectors and then the development of new elements for the windshield and cockpit hatch from 75150 Darth Vader's TIE Advanced vs. A-Wing Starfigther from 2016. I first need to give a shout out to the initial influence of Rebel Builder's TIE Interceptor MOC for the solar panel collectors and then too Kevin Yoo for his cockpit ball design. My biggest grudge with the TIE Interceptor MOCs was the connection point between the pylons and solar panel collectors. They always appeared to big, bulky, and cumbersome for a fighter that is suppose to be sleek and fast. My solution was to do some "unofficial" LEGO connectiions to keep the attachment points sleek and narrow. I'm still not 100% happy with my MOC, the pylons need to be thinner and I need to solidify the attachment point for the forward windshield (it's not the strongest connection). Any and all comments are appreciated. Follow the link to my Flickr page to see more of the design process. TIE Interceptor by gcanik, on Flickr Flickr Album view: https://flic.kr/s/aHskTH9hFx

    Great Build! Like that you included the floor shots to see how you created the angles before putting the finishing floor on top.
