  1. Nice to know the Hoth AT-ST actually has longer legs. Still hoping that it'll fit 2 pilots even though 1 is included. It should be easy at that scale. Is it already known what the theme will be for the SW figure packs or what minifigures will be included? Is it the expected four per pack?

    BIONICLE/Constraction "References" In Other Media

    He was such a master thief, he stole the entire Matoran Universe from Mata Nui and its inhabitants.
  3. Does anyone know if there are any talks to add Big Fig parts to Stud.io soon? Or is there another way to import such CAD files into stud.io? I am talking about the torso's, the generic bigfic arms and hands are available.
  4. The standard classic male hairpiece in grey would probably work well for Crosshair, if he has a face. Not too difficult of a piece to acquire. At first I thought Wrecker had the armor piece introduced in a CMF series and later used by BvS Armored Batman. But it seems to be a new piece. I would've liked the use of that previous piece as it makes the entire torso quite bulky, but at least he still has a buff chest and it's nice that the new mold exists.

    [MOC] Minifig Scale Clone Wars J-1 Proton Cannon

    This is one of my favorite cannons in the Star Wars canon and this Lego rendition looks incredible!
  6. I hereby present a Stud.io MOC recreating the updated look for Steppenwolf in Zack Snyder's Justice League: It is supposed to replace the build from https://brickset.com/sets/76087-1/Flying-Fox-Batmobile-Airlift-Attack which was based on the theatrical cut. It still uses the old Steppenwolf head (photoshopped in) but even though the details of that head piece are accurate to the theatrical version, proportionally it matches the 2021 version quite well. It's also the only Lego Steppenwolf head in existence anyway. For the skin color I used white like the head piece. Unfortunately the 1x2 plate with three teeth does not exist in LBG or silver. The small model also has some waist articulation through the use of a Mixels joint and it uses the same build as the official Lego set for the axe, as that did not change in the film. Though here I've added a bit of the energy emanating from it to create a bit more visual interest as the color scheme of the figure is more monochrome. I may make some renders where he's posed. Please share your thoughts and criticisms in the comments :)
  7. I am absolutely fine with the sabd blue color scheme. It looks more unique and stands out in the collection. Furthermore, while the shuttle looks light gray in the two shows, it appears this is heavily based on that one concept art image that has been on the internet for years: in which it is sand blue.
  8. I haven't followed this topic for a while but is the Razor Crest set being discontinued?
  9. I hope someone can answer this for me. I cannot find this anywhere. Generally Stud.io is extremely hard to use anyway.
  10. Concerning the helmets of the Bad Batch, I think Hunter and Echo could probably use the existing Phase II helmet with new printing. Wrecker could use the Mandalorian helmet if no new mould will be introduced for him. Crosshair could use the Flametrooper helmet with new printing, but then he would not have a rangefinder. Only Tech truly needs a new mould.
  11. Jan Dodonna would probably be the only interesting figure in this wave's OT sets.
  12. They seem to be grey recolors of the existing figures, probably just something they made quickly for the TV special.
  13. At first glance the X-wing looked quite good to me. Nice colors like the 2018 version, a nice size that is more appropriate for minifigs and a good price. I also quite like the new build for the tip of the nose. But then I saw how the nose goes immediately from 4 studs wide to 3 and it looks quite bad. As they still haven't captured the downward slope of the whole nose section, it is a shame to loose the sloped/angled side panels. I hope there is at least 1 other minifig included. The Imperial Shuttle body looks way too blocky. I don't know what is going on with the underside of the cockpit but it looks horrible. Don't think it's a good price at all, would gladly pay a bit more for a better one. Luckily I have the 2015 version so I already did just that. I like the downsizing of most of these sets but some sets are just meant to be expensive, and the Imperial Shuttle is no exception, the 2015 version is probably the smallest you can get it while fitting minifigures. The TIE looks alright, the dark grey bits are unfortunate. Can't they just use clips instead of ball joints? The cockpit is nice and round and it is definitely an appropriate size for a TIE, though the wings seem a bit too short so I'd rather they went with even stubbier wings and slightly longer pylons so that it would at least look like the SW Rebels design. Resistance X-wing still keeps the ugly cockpit from the other 4+ set. I do like how the engines form a nice circle and not some oval shape. The Microfighters are completely uninteresting and this has to be the most boring minifigure selection in a wave of all time.

    Unpopular Opinions related to Lego Star Wars

    I personally am not bothered by the fact that the early CW sets were remakes. Now, one reason is that I was a child so I did not yet have most of the movie versions of those vehicles. But even when I got for instance the CW Republic Gunship I still wanted the 2002 Gunship because it was slightly different and the minifigures were very different too of course. So from 2008 onwards I hoped to see many new CW vehicles but also CW remakes of PT sets. I just liked the distinction between animated ships and their minifig counterparts vs movie ships and minifigs. Kashyyyk indeed seems like it is the Hoth of the prequel sets, yet it is still nowhere near as bad. They remake the clone vehicles way too much and of all troopers there is indeed an overflow of Kashyyyk camo clones (they are even more common than plain phase II clones), but they could still make some of the trees / Wookiee architecture and make remakes of the Wookiee vehicles. Those are long overdue.

    This is an odd comparison. Hoth is definitely way too dominating, that is just one location (lots of AT-ATs, snowspeeders and white bricks, it gets boring pretty quickly). TCW as a subtheme offers so much that can be pulled from. The initial TCW waves mostly consisted of remakes of sets that were previously prequel sets, but they hadn't been released in quite a while. Then they focused more on the CW specific stuff, though they did not nearly reach the potential of what they could've done. I don't see why you'd have a CW burnout now, there's only been 2 sets from season 7 and pretty much nothing in the last couple of years.
