    [PRESS RELEASE] 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer

    Having seen this in person now, I am really torn. I like the idea of it better than the actual model. Once you get over it being ‘big’, it’s hard to justify. I don’t love it the way I do the MF (no regrets buying that!) and I can’t spend that kind of cash on something I don’t love. It would cost a fortune to MOD. Wish someone would do an ISD MOC in a Monarch style but 50% smaller. I think I’m going to redirect those funds to make Starbricks Bomber this year instead.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer

    This means you can try and tile up big sections of that top layer to give it a much cleaner and more accurate look. Two layers underneath as well. I think that will make it look significantly better. I bet you can also put in some interior rooms similar to the MF set up based on that review video. Sort of sucks to have to think about it this way. MF cost a mint, but looked fantastic, detailed, modern and interesting out of the box, this one looks basic. They could have added that detail put the price and piece count at the same level as the Falcon and had way less complaints. Not fussed about the minifigs, but I would have picked a few ISD Flagship commanders, Thrawn, Tarkin, Vader.. not generic crew. Crew should be in battle packs - but what do I know. I’m buying it- and 500 or more various tiles from Bricklink. but no idea where I will put it.

    Really torn with this one. Don't like the gaps, don't like how many visible studs there are, don't like the price, don't like the minifigures, don't like how shaky it looks in the video, and I think they missed a great opportunity to include a little bridge interior. Better than the previous one, sure. and the shape is good- but that is an awfully low bar. The MF set a new UCS standard, and to me this just doesn't match it. Plus we have seen so many quality MOC's showing what can be done and it doesn't seem like they took anything from that. Yes the Monarch is 12000 pieces but with all the resources at their disposal I would have expected something.... more refined. It already kind of looks dated. Double points helps I guess, and I have been looking forward to this for so long.... It should be possible to MOD some of the surface elements, but the gaps and obvious fragility are really disappointing at this price. As others have said, its good. Not amazing. Not terrible- just good. Is that enough to buy it? For me probably- barely. Getting and doing some MODs will still be cheaper than investing in a 12000 piece MOC. But I don't think it will be a huge seller.

    Problem is the quality MOCs- like the Monarch- are 15,000 pieces! Worst case I hope its an easy MOD to smooth it out a bit. Best case it's just awesome as is.
  5. Yes. Now that I think about it. I have nothing from Resistance, nothing from TLJ or TFA. The only reason I have any prequel sets is because of Clone Wars. But I do have a tie striker and a U-wing, and I really liked Rogue One. I liked Solo too, but the best ships were OT ones.

    I would not be so confident in the cat not judging you.... Its likely a day one purchase for me.

    If one of my staff actually asked me for day off for that- I’d give it to them.

    Every time I see this thread move to the top I rush in to buy the instructions! But alas.... not today.

    yeah-virtually zero chance. Particularly at this price range. It's an ISD- maybe a 1% chance its a SSD? Can't see even a remote possibility of anything else.

    Seriously. Recommending Lepin should result in an automatic ban from this site.
