    check one of the flickr posts: they should have studio files that correspond to the actual model

    good question. i considered that while building the back engines but i completely forgot at the end. Just imagine r2 calls in via bluetooth :)

    if you've ever stacked "older" SNOT bricks stud to antistud and put tiles on em they usually happen to be off a stud or two; the travis brick somehow made up for the remainder of the overwatch gun and it worked out. i was surprised this worked as well as it did tbh: i was considering a different gun base since i had seen an overwatch gun used recently and didn't want to feel derivative, but when i tested it out it was actually more brilliant than i thought. tha the trigger works to make it feel connected is even more of a W. and thanks for the rest of your comments! to be honest almost all of those comments on decisions were almost exactly thoughts i had in the process of building it, looking at both the rx 728 and red 5 and figuring out how to merge the designs ideally. should mention that the helmet was designed as a callback to the x wing helmet but with an insignia and the gun was a merger of that gundam rifle with the dc-15 and that longstanding star wars rifle butt. definitely one of the models that's taken a while to make work and i'm glad i did

    funny thing is there's a studio file hyperlinked to the flickr page hyperlinked in the photo; do check that out and uh see if you can engineer it

    honestly if the "d2c" is anything it's probably a building set for the wave; friend of mine alleges the model's $110 for 1300-1500 pieces. i can't comment on the veracity of this but it would certainly fit given ninjago's pattern of smaller location build for the winter and larger location build for the summer. fingers crossed for another modular though!

    finally, a good star wars wave. it's been like 4 years since the last almost completely good one anyways love the transport; can't tell much about it rn but it looks fairly accurate and i like the shaping. here's hoping the function works ahsoka vs maul looks like garbage but given the two figures most people here are gonna keep while cashing in the rest and considering a couple pieces in neat colors it's fine; 147 pieces can only build so much anyways something about the mando fighter didn't quite gel with me initially: i thought it was the wings looking messy (and they do to some extent) but really the issue is the cockpit. hope the horizontal orientation looks more palatable because vertical feels off in a weird way slave 1 is surprisingly good: wasn't shocked by lego being able to make a slave 1 with 590 pieces (they've done with 570 and it can easily exceed a slave 1 with 1000 in size), but wow does it look nice. i consider the 2019 slave 1 to be a masterclass in lego design and the pinnacle of slave 1 renditions, but much like the x wing it's a smart move by lego to downsize the megablocker and smarter move to include mando and boba. here's hoping they do the same to the slave 1 as they did the x wing (downsize but make unique in a cool way) big grey shuttle seems like a big grey shuttle, which i guess is important for the finale. don't mind it, it has a strong silhouette, it's fine. --- overall congrats to lego for finally making a good star wars wave; was optimistic about the winter wave solely as a proof-of-concept series with smaller refined builds to clean up the overpriced fig-centric garbage of last year and some of the year prior (and the year prior and the year before that and before that and...). That this wave looks as good as it does is in no small part due to lego finally getting some strong content to base on, but if anything the choice to make things more affordable and the design standards set with wave 1 really helped get things going. here's hoping for another 2006-2014 era for star wars

    i think i was sold on its use in Golden Legend, but it looks like there's a demand for a bigger fire temple! gonna have to fix the "function" in my own moc and see if i can pump a good buck or two out of instructions >>>:)

    can't remember who but i believe it was duckbricks- it was duckbricks who laid it out; neat read i suppose

    That's a little funny: i'm pretty sure jay and lloyd have had the most dragons whereas kai and zane have had 2 dragons each (including now; firstbourne counts as far as red dragons but then that's 3 compared to jay or lloyd's 4 and the various other ones). If ultra counts here it's somewhat differentiated in texturing but really this just screams out that we could use some earthy dragons if anything

    disappointed by most of these sets for sure, but that was true even before their official images; i like how they look though. temple looks decent with some issues and a nice benthomaar figure, hydro bounty is solid with the small issue of being a little overpriced, water dragon is phenomenal etc. small problems with the fire dragon but overall i like the effort to make it look organic and with a couple mods it'll fit right in, whereas the raider is eh but it's not like it's ever been a particularly good design to start with. on the smaller side, jay car isn't really neat and hydro mech is fine at best. sucks that we didn't get more aquatic stuff tho: a bigger manta ray with scuba nya and scuba kai for $40 or $50 would've been nice but it is what it is
