  1. Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    If you are going to get them all then Jabba's Palace first as that is an old set that had a bit of controversy surrounding it I remember correctly so may struggle to get a remake especially with a fishnet wearing dancer because it's Disney now. As for your Death star, remember, if it looks too good to be true it probably is. That's a purchase that's too risky to deal with all the hassle of getting the money back.

    It really depends what you're interested in, figures or vehicles? Jabba's Palace would be an instant buy if you like minifigures as it has an outstanding collection included plus the model is really excellent too. The only problem with buying the palace is the sudden urge to buy the Rancor pit to go with it. As for the two ships, they never really struck me as wow vehicles I must have. In fact I took my U-wing apart for parts as it looked strangely proportioned and bulky. I'd say the Sandcrawler is a great price as Bricklink is showing around $300 without the shipping.

    Lego really seem to be going hard after the resellers and investors as they have now re-released the Taj Mahal. I would say SSD seems next on the list at this rate

    I think Alexastor makes a really valid point about white printing on any kind of base colour. It just doesn't look very good and i suspect they actively try and avoid doing it if possible. A recent example would be the legs on Tatooine Luke where they moved away from printing white onto tan to the more recent tan printing on white base.

    I'd say it's all subjective and we all have different opinions on what's good or bad. It would be interesting to see what other minifigs this graphic designer has done. Maybe it's a styling theme they have?

    I don't think it's a case of Lego not caring or letting standards slip but rather Disney not giving them concrete final designs for upcoming movies. From my understanding the time it takes to produce a Minifig is very lengthy and work from early sketches often. There is then the added problem of Disney changing designs before the final release. If you think about it, the perception that Lego accuracy is slipping has only really come about recently as they try to second guess what a character will look like before the films have been released.

    ooh, Ardywan has an ESB version out. I will have to try and track that down as i really enjoyed the New hope revisited edition.
  8. Imperial Military Forces

    The attention to detail you've put into this is outstanding and I too prefer older prints on some figures, such as Dengar. You have stated that colour palette is incorrect and reference the Adywan version of the film as a source to be used. Isn't that counter-intuitive? That version of the film is a fan edit that is trying to update Star Wars to look like a more modern polished film with extra sounds, models, lighting and all sorts and not restore it to its original theatre state. As for the tan office, I like them as it's the only version of an imperial office you can get in any significant numbers cheaply
  9. Imperial Military Forces

    The atmospheric flight suit will be a mix and match of various minifigs. The helmet is from set 7915, the visor is probably a rebel pilot head and the torso/legs from a more recent tie pilot. The end result really is a great figure though. Agree on the Hovertank Pilot. The helmet is just not good at all but adding Syndrome's dual moulded arms to it does make it a slightly better mini figure. But only slightly.

    Been using previous versions for reference the last few years as they are great for someone who is a bit OCD about troop building. Love the latest update but shouldn't the bottom right military intelligence figure be the tan mini figure? Just out of interest, to follow up on Mamma Mia Bricks point, is there a reason you keep some of the older variations in your collection? You obviously put a lot of time and money (all those dual modded legs!) into these but keep older prints that can easily be updated for very little money. For me the blue AT-AT driver is a better looking version, if not one of my favourite imperial troopers, so do you keep older versions out of preference?

    ...and the award for displaying the largest ever Lego set on the worlds smallest shelf goes to this brave madman

    looks amazing but you forgot to show us the most important angle so we can see the engine lighting in its full glory.
  13. Updating Your Minifigs

    Well it can't hurt to get one of the new belts and play around with some combinations for starters. I thought the brown version looked great on some of the rebel fighters but i get the point that it could become overkill combined with certain prints.

    The RPF have this imagine and they tend to take this type of stuff very seriously. As you can see the seating is not as tan as the corridor but not grey like the seating structure but somewhere in-between. Its the old problem of lego not having a huge range of colours available.
  15. Updating Your Minifigs

    The new Batgirl in the Joker manor set has the utility belt in white so I will need to buy a bucket load of those to update my Stormtroopers and rebel snow troopers. Its been the one recolour I've been waiting on since the new Batman utility belt was released. Hope they turn up on bricks and pieces or a German bricklink store ends up with thousands of them some how.
