    MOC: UCS Imperial Star Destroyer

    This looks awesome! Well done, it’s a great build. Any idea of a rough piece count? I bet you would sell a fair number of instructions for a decent price if you were interested in doing that. I would buy them in a heartbeat.

    Rogue One Chess Set MOC

    Thank you, those were inspired by the Lego Pirates Chess set which had a similar idea. I like to use those areas to put the pieces that have been taken. Thanks, those are some great ideas. You got me thinking about a version 2 of the chess set now! Thanks, funny you should mention the pawn issue, it has caused some confusion when playing with someone who is not that familiar with Star Wars. I have kept the pawns as different minifigs to more accurately represent the makeup of the Rebels on Scarif and also to include Bistan and Pao, but you have a good point. Definitely requires more thought to make them similar but different, I think it is bye bye Bistan and Pao. Yes, the white square issue is shameful, my bad. I had taken the set apart, it splits into four sections, for storage and when I put it back together I made a rookie mistake, doh! Thanks for your kind words. Thanks, see my response to Johnny1360 for my reply to the points you seconded.

    Rogue One Chess Set MOC

    This is my MOC of a Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Chess Set based on the Battle of Scarif. The MOC was based on the Lego Pirates Chess Set 40158 and Lego Star Wars Battle on Scarif 75171. When I first saw the Lego Pirates set, the first thing that came to mind was modding it to be a Star Wars Chess Set, then I saw Rogue One and set about building it. It has sat on my desk in various states over the last year or so and I thought it was about time to finish it and share it with you all. To my knowledge this is the first Lego Chess Set based on Rogue One unless I missed something. Some of the changes I made were: Making the connection between minifigure and chess board two studs to centralise the position of the figure. Changing the colour of the water plates to be closer to the colour of the water on Scarif. After building 21042 recently I decided to give this set a black border and base to add stability. I feel that it also gave the build a nicer finish. Foliage and beach design and layout. The one thing I found difficult was deciding which minifigures should represent each piece, given the lack of Imperial female representation the Queen ended up being Orson Krennic whilst the King is Darth Vader. Please let me know if you have any comments of ideas for improving it. Anyway enough of my babble, here are the photos: And finally a friend suggested that I included a mini AT-ACT, so I modified Miro’s mini AT-AT from https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-8089/Miro/tiny-at-at/#comments Thanks for looking at my build.

    Bat logo

    Make the whole thing two studs deep, instead of what I assume is one stud. I can’t look at the lxf file at the moment to be sure. If I am wrong then just ignore me. Then build it slightly differently in either the first or second stud depth to block off the visible lines. You have made two impressive versions of the logo using so few bricks. These are exceptional work.

    Lego BAT-AT

    Thanks for your kind words. I haven’t tried any yellow accented Batbuilds yet, but I can imagine the bee issue! One of the donor sets for this build was the Flying Fox set from Justice League, which is where the stickered “Wayne Technology” wedges came from. I see your point about them not fitting with The Lego Batman Movie, I used them as a practical way to incorporate the stud shooters (always a requirement for my son) and I liked the fact they included a red accent in the sticker. The feedback from this thread is encouraging me to have a go at a version 2 including some ideas that were dropped from this build, so thanks for the feedback, it all helps.

    Jurassic Park Rollercoaster - WIP

    It’s a great idea. The pieces you have made so far look really good. I’m looking forward to seeing your progress of this. Sorry I am unable to help with your questions. I haven’t used the rollercoaster track pieces, but I’m sure somebody will be able to help and maybe you can get some ideas from the power functions feature of the new rollercoaster set.

    [WIP] [MOC] [LDD] AT-M6 PlusSize

    I built some MOCs but never anything of this scale so I can imagine how difficult it was. Did you build freehand or start with LDD? Of course, I’ll take some shots of the two plus size walkers and their official set counterparts. I’m impressed with the MOC and the few people to see it so far have been very positive about it. I like the way you can space the front feet further apart than the back feet. My construction impressions are that it is a very sturdy build, I did swear at it a few times when I picked up the body during the building process and the things at the front and back of the underside feel apart. I quickly learned to pick it up under the middle though. From a modding it perspective, I may take the sliders off of all of the feet and removal the hinges on the sides of the front feet to lock it in place for display. I’m also thinking about tiling over the technic beams where the legs meet the body to cover the exposed parts. These are small changes I plan to make for my own personal preferences and are in no way criticisms of your work, please know that I am really grateful for all the time and hardwork you put into designing your excellent MOC.

    [WIP] [MOC] [LDD] AT-M6 PlusSize

    I am putting my next project on hold and sorting my bricks now, never going through that again. I swear I spent way more time sorting and finding bricks than building it! Now I just need to clear some space on a shelf to display it next to Raskolnikov’s Plus Size AT-AT.

    Lego BAT-AT

    Thanks, I’ve got a few other things to post, but I can’t take credit for the idea of the BAT-AT. My three year old son asked me to build it. Thanks, it does look nice next to the 60’s Batmobile. Double thank you. I do like a bit of Boba.

    Another Doh! moment. First time using Flickr. Thanks.

    Doh! Silly me, something was bound to go wrong the first time I post something I built myself. How did you embed the photo? Thanks for your kind words.

    Lego BAT-AT

    This BAT-AT MOD started as a simple recolour into black of 75054. However, once that was done I modified it to fit with the colour scheme of the vehicles from the Lego Batman Movie. I started work on this when my son asked for an AT-AT for Batman. Thanks for looking.

    [WIP] [MOC] [LDD] AT-M6 PlusSize

    Finished! Thanks for making this awesome build. It would have been so much easier if I had sorted my bricks better beforehand. Your LDD instructions were great.
