    Updating Your Minifigs

    I managed to pick up a couple of the Mandalorian battle packs so my clan has expanded. I have spent a lot of time trying to create unique looking figures from other parts and this is still work in progress as I hope to buy more body parts and helmets I don't yet own.

    Nebulon-B Escort frigate MOC - album in comments

    A great rendition at a great scale. 99.9% of people on this site will look at the other larger mocs of the nebulon with great envy but this scale opens up the possibility of building the ship to most people (if there are any instructions, obviously). I would agree with m4st3rt3ch that the engines could be changed out but have you thought about changing a couple of the pods at the front to different colours such as sand green and tan to bring a bit more colour? You could also add some wedge plates to the spine of that front module to break up the dry stone wall look the repeating tiles and curves give it. It really is a great build and i'm just throwing out a few tinkering ideas I would do once built like i would with official sets.

    The ManDelorean

    Really clever and fun build with some really great part use. I especially like the minifig use on the the shoulders and knees.

    [MOC] Star Wars: The X-Wing Story

    Given the amount of force imparted on it, the x-wing held up really well. I just have to look at my UCS falcon funny and a dozen or so pieces fall off. The mad scientist in me would love to see a video of an x-wing sold by Lego man handled in such a way for comparison.

    It looks like Lego is shifting the pricing of its sets. Larger play sets are now heading towards UCS prices of recent years but scrimping on the piece count. Leaving the door open for "mega" USC to get released with eye watering prices. The falcon and the upcoming Star Destroyer will be proof of that. If people are buying them, it makes good business sense.

    Yes, Lego is expensive but that's no huge revelation to members of this forum. A USC version would cost more than this. Look on the bright side, it has at least 3 mini figures that are normally held back for UCS sets.

    The stickers seem to be several smaller stickers attached to the cone rather that one large sticker which should make them easier to apply. I think they learned their lesson with the x-wing cockpit sticker.

    It's a perfectly serviceable rendition of the ship for me. The fins look less awkward than I first thought and I'm sure the middle section can be modded to add the Vader corridor fight. All those on instagram saying disappointed need to realise you are not going to get ucs level details or size at playset prices.

    Question Land Speeder sets 75173 vs 75052

    I had to move house because of a serious fire that left my collection really smoke and water damaged so I'm slowly rebuilding but it's taking a long time. The cantina is in the parts bin for a long time as it's an ongoing project to combine all the cantina sets I own in to a much larger moc.

    Question Land Speeder sets 75173 vs 75052

    I have owned both and are both now in the parts bin but I can say without doubt 75173 is better. Its an evolution of the cantina set and is much more refined in its design. A couple of upgrades on the 75173 version that stood out were the more accurate curved tiles on the front and the engine pods were a lot more stable if I remember correctly. 75052 is a nice set but it was overpriced at release and has only become more overpriced on the secondary market after it was retired.

    The hashtag of legoleaks seems to be added to every Lego post on instagram at the moment in order to gain more clicks. I wouldn't put too much faith in that.

    The rarest of LEGO Star Wars collections

    The R2 was one of the prizes in the recent black VIP card draw?

    The rarest of LEGO Star Wars collections

    Wow, that's a collection most, if not all of us, could only dream of owning. The amount of money that is in that picture has got to be brain melting high. How much was the Boba rumoured to be by the way?

    Are these from solo? I'm not sure where they are from but they are a fantastic representation of the source material. Great job.

    The pocket printing half off the torso onto plain legs still looks odd to me and the alternative choking face could have been better. I think Lego could have done a lot better with this one.
