  1. This to me is what Lego is about! I had Lego as a kid, but never tons of the stuff, so it was all about being as creative as possible with a finite quantity of pieces.

    What is your favorite UCS Set of all time?

    Thoroughly enjoyed building Slave 1, even if it did benefit from the strengthening mod, but I didn't have to build an extra stand for it, or build it's own bloody shelf, so it scores over the Falcon!

    Darth Talon

    Wow that's incredible, I think the belly button is my favourite detail!
  4. This may have to be the Star destroyer I build, it seems as close to perfect as a display model in this size as you're likely to get.

    [Review] #75273 Poe Dameron's X-wing Fighter

    Just found this set on ebay, with just the R2 figure, but otherwise boxed, bagged, and unbuilt, for a £45 saving on the new price! Liking ships/vehicles more than minifigs pays off quite regularly!

    [REVIEW] 75256 - Kylo Ren's Shuttle

    Having done the colour swap, and wing mod on the previous version, I'm loathe to spend on this one, but I might look into replicating the wing folding mechanism as it's pretty neat.
  7. When on of the reasons I dislike the sequel trilogy is that they have such unoriginal and derivative ships and craft, then I would say yes it does influence my lack of recent purchases. Here in the UK we're being made to wait until March before we get the disney streaming service, which is painful when so many are raving over how good it is!

    [MOC] D-0, the new droid from IX

    I honestly think that's better than either the R2-D2, or BB-8 you pictured it with.
  9. Well I'll be darned, the pics all seem to be back up! Has photobucket had a change of heart? Good video btw Kozikyo86

    Can't see pics, "not allowed"
  12. I have some time this week, I'll try and upload all the pics somewhere else. This whole photobucket thing has been a major Pain in the big behind! I've been crazy busy at work so this has been a low priority but I'll see what I can do. There will be significatly less pics than before so you'll have to work some bits out for yourself. Happy holidays!
  13. The worms are out already, there's no point pretending this isn't happening. There are going to be a lot of potential customers that will see "Temporarily out of stock" for the next few weeks (months?) and go the Lepin route instead, and while I despise the lack of scruples of these Chinese copycats, I feel like Lego only have themselves to blame this time. If they'd let people pre-order in advance of release, and metered them out at one per customer, or household, then there would be an awful lot less annoyed potential customers out there. As it is, it seems like it will be 2018 before anyone wanting to order one will even be able to place said order. Meanwhile the Chinese will be making out like bandits. I know that Lepin is a touchy subject on here but I really hope Lego is reading this and learns from their mistakes. Launching one of the most eagerly anticipated sets the way they did was stupid, and has left many disappointed, and many others are making a fortune selling on the extra sets they bought due Lego's production ineptitude.
  14. I notice that the Chinese copy of this set is going to be available soon. Well done LEGO on screwing up this release so badly that the counterfeit maker is going to get production going before you can. I hope this doesn't harm sales, but I really do feel that they've shot themselves in the foot this time. £150 for the copy, or £650 for the real thing............................
