    If they are now using a plastic that is more prone to cracking they need to hire someone with a chemistry degree because the plastic we have now is cracking enough already.

    I don't remember the film helmets having any 90 degree angles in them. Was this the interns first try at designing a helmet? The last version was so much closer and just required tweaking like so many others have mentioned.

    To be fair I've never heard of the kids complain about the lack of or the quality of printing on a figure. They normally smash them into each other or most heartbreaking of all bite on the heads or legs to pull them apart. I don't think they care about it. Maybe it's more of a AFOL problem

    Except they do have cargo style trousers with pouches. I agree it looks half complete as a figure and wouldn't have been difficult for Lego to throw a pair of grey imperial crew legs on them as it's a print they use now.

    Lego Star Wars fanfilm is looking for your support

    Good luck with all your endeavours but asking AFOL's to pay for you to quit your job and play with Lego full time might be a bit of a stretch for some. Given the chance I'd certainly start a topic that said "I want to quite my boring job, can you fund my Lego hobby?" but I'm guessing mods would soon put me in the naughty corner . Fair play though, If you don't ask you don't get.

    Finding LEGO pictures can be tricky so I sit back and enjoy my favourite LEAK INSTA soup instead. I'm not a machine proGRAMed to do such demanding tasks

    I have to agree that this is a wasted mould given the scout trooper helmet is really dated and in need of an update.

    I have to say, when the new rebel pilot helmet first leaked I was not a fan but it has grown on me when in hand. Maybe the new stormie helmet will also be a "grower".

    You may have jinxed it. That new Stormtrooper helmet looks like it came straight from the rebels or freemaker TV show.

    The Leia looks like a regular printed figure and not the more cartoon like figure you could find in the junior sets. Looks like I can hold off buying the expensive Death Star version now.

    The joint in the rear wings is a nice touch. I've always felt the original sets wings were a little to stubby in proportion to the rest of the ship and when you sit it next to the other shuttle it makes it more apparent. Could the wings be lengthened a bit more?

    [MOD] Imperial Landing Craft 75221

    I think you are downplaying your Mod skills a little too much as this is a really solid upgrade on the original. You managed to come up with a simple solution for covering the gaps that works well along with the cockpit. The landing gear may struggle to hold up over time though as I suspect the clips will eventually snap due to the excess stress of all that weight. I will definitely be checking back in on the thread when I get my shuttle.

    Using a rubber will dull the shine but It's only really noticeable if you hold it up to the light and move it around looking for it. Besides, I try not to rub off printing on expensive parts I might later regret. Does using Brasso dull the plastic to the same degree and could you not get more precision using a dab of Brasso on the end of a cotton bud?

    Updating Your Minifigs

    IMG_3454 by That Orange Thing, on Flickr I had a crack at it. Pretty much your choices except I added tan hips to look like a tunic, green gloves and removed the insignia. Not a prefect representation of the original but It's there in spirit.

    Well I'm a sucker for dual moulded legs. If it's screen accurate or not I can't resist a booted figure
