  1. For Baylan's hairpiece:;colorID=86&amp;in=A I'm not a big fan of the show but I quite like all the sets so I think I'll get them when they're substantially discounted. I plan to upgrade Ahsoka with a couple of the spare curved hilts that I have, and I'll give Baylan this hairpiece along with the shoulder pads and the cape. Of course, Shin and Baylan will get trans-neon orange lightsabers (it is such a large oversight, I know this color is discontinued but they could've at least used trans-orange for them).

    Thanks. Where in the Wal-Mart would they be located? Because I don’t think they’re at the Lego or toy aisles. Or the ones I visited don’t have them.

    I am currently in the US, does anyone know in what stores I can find the Batman 1992 polybag?

    [MOC] – Colin Cantwell's Concept X-wing model

    The new rounded Speed Champions windscreens (either 6-wide or the 4-wide one, the latter of which would require a change in scale) would work better on this model, but overall it looks great.
  5. It has been officially revealed and I just cannot understand how a designer fumbles with interior design this much when there's so much space available. Why is there not even a hint of something that's in the actual interior of the ship, such as the couch? It's the 2016 Rebel Combat Frigate all over again: there's so much space but there's nothing recognisable.
  6. The Ghost does not appear to have increased in size at all compared to the 2014 version, so the higher piece count mostly comes from the addition of the Phantom and some more exterior details. Overall I wouldn't say it's a complete improvement; it does some things better than the previous version and some things are worse. The underside is not as cleaned-up as the previous one as there is a lot of exposed Technic and the landing gear looks a bit awkward. It is a shame that the upper turret is so bulky yet cannot even rotate like before. The blatant use of inaccurate blue light for the exhausts is strange as they got it right before. However, the use of interior space seems to be much better, but not exactly accurate to what should be there on the inside. The exterior details along the top are quite nice (they even got the panels behind the cockpit angled inwards) except for the ugly top turret. Minifigures are nice for what they are I guess, I don't think I'll care about them though thanks to the current state of SW and the complete lack of excitement I now have for the Ahsoka show. Speaking of Ahsoka, it's strange that now suddenly they gave her a new mould for her headtails; it's not that necessary to make them shorter anymore as in the show they have elongated the headtails when compared to her appearance in Mandalorian. There also seems to be an overengineered feature to rotate the front turret. It is also strange how the cannons are still black like on the 2014 version and not grey, though maybe they have a different color in live-action.

    I would spend some money on a Batmobile or another vehicle from those movies with Mr Freeze and such.

    Strange though, the other Flash merch is in full swing. Ezra Miller is not The Flash, so I don't see why they'd remove his figure. I can kinda see Lego not wanting a realistic version of him on the box though, even though again, he is not the character he's playing. But they could've used generic box art or a drawn Lego figure.

    The ears on the type 2 cowl are indeed too long, but I think Lego used that cowl on the armored suit because the thick chin strap section looks more like the movie helmet, especially in silver. It would've been nice to get a dedicated mould for it though, as it really needed the short ears and a bit more angular shaping.

    The part of it that’s visible looks good except for the pain 1x1 wheel inserts and the same squared-off canopy that the GWP used.

    Agreed, though I’ve been wanting to make purist customs of his Alfred and Batflecks Bruce Wayne and I think there are figure parts that may be suitable. From what I know, DC and Marvel both fall under the super heroes theme and the number of sets is shared between them. Lego chooses to make more Marvel sets because they sell better. I wish they’d just increase the total number of sets so DC could get some more, but then they’d probably make those Marvel too.
  15. The build dfor the BP cannon looks pretty good. Shame there is no control panel though. It's also a shame that 3 odf the 4 troopers reuse the standard 501st legs.
