    Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    That's a great shout- might be lucky and get two of them..... I reckon it's mainly going to be Jabbas guards and droids though, there is scope for a jawa and tusken raider bp though. FYI Jawas and Jabba have history behind the scenes Can anyone please tell me how big the current falcon is when assembled? Thank you :)

    Are these vouchers single use? I want to share this voucher with a friend, can we both use the same code, If both of us print the voucher and use it separately will they work? Thanks
  9. Hi, coming from the vintage star wars world I must advise avoiding the use of ANY air tight container- ziplock bags, sandwich boxes etc- plastic gives off some pretty nasty fumes as it ages. If the fumes are trapped in with plastic it causes damage- yellowing to light coloured plastic, brittleness and in extreme heat it contributes to warping. I store my minifigures in a cardboard box, loosely packed, not touching any plastic. They are in a room with good ventilation and not in direct sunlight. If you wish to read up on the best types of storage check out the comic book world- they use special materials that don't react and do damage to their collections. Ventilate your figures people!

    MOCing for beginners

    Thank you for taking the time to reply My lego should be here any day now, so I will have a play and see just how big to make it. I think the 7666 wall is (*It has just dropped throught the postbox!*) 36 studs wide, I would like to make the blast doors wide enough to fit an x wing through, anyone know how many studs wide they are? I am guessing they are 30/32 studs in width? I might do a plan on paint... Hmm... I will have a play!

    MOCing for beginners

    Can anyone give me any pointers?
  12. Firstly I have done a search on building techniques and although I found lots of helpful information I couldn’t find what I was looking for. After years of wanting to make my own Hoth base I have finally taken the plunge and bought a load of loose bricks. I have built lots of sets over the last three years, from various themes (40+ at least) I am yet to make my own creation though. I am going to purchase a 7666 Hoth base to give me the foundations, the plan is to modify it and, in the future, add the Echo base control room. My question isn’t straight forward- I really don’t know where to start on the build, I have bought several lots of bricks: 2X http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1439.l2649 http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1439.l2649 http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1439.l2649 Also found some ice pieces (and a load of trans light blue 1x1 tiles) in this lot: http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1439.l2649 My quandary is, do I build the base to a set size of base plate or build it to the vehicles I want to place inside? I was thinking about going 48 x 20 outside. I am hoping this will give enough room to place the blast doors and end wall on and for some trenches and gun turrets etc. I haven’t given the inside much though as of yet, probably to include an x wing and two snowspeeders. My idea to make is different to any others I have seen it to put mezzanine floor at the rear of the set. I am hoping this will give the dio a bit more texture and not be quite so linear. Made up of these: http://www.bricklink...86&itemID=64904 To summarise, I would love to hear some advice on the planning stage- I don’t want to spend a fortune on buying base boards (aren’t they expensive?!) and find they aren’t the right size for my build. Maybe sketching out my idea is the way forward? Thanks in advance, Edbrick

    Ice bricks

    I am wondering what ice type bricks are out there? After a search I found these two: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=47847pb01L (I think from Batman) and http://www.bricklink.com/catalogList.asp?catType=P&catString=99 (From the Hoth base) Are there any others? I am hoping mixed with trans light blue these may be effective.
