    U-Project - Where to buy?

    This actual looks pretty interesting. You pay for it- but having all the pieces come from a single source at one time, knowing they are all real lego pieces, and knowing the designers are on board- seems like it would be worth it.... Probably the only way I would be able to consider something the size of the Monarch for example. hmmmm

    [WIP] UCS-scale Impellor-class Fleet Carrier

    giving this a bump- just cus' it looks really interesting. This and the Venator project from @thire5 are looking super promising.

    SB00401 K-PROJECT (MOC K-2so UCS)

    Surprising choice, and a fantastic build!

    SB00301 B-PROJECT (MOC Resistance Bomber UCS)

    Hope the reveal and Bomber instructions will be a joint announcement...

    What is your favorite UCS Set of all time?

    Cockpit design is really pretty poor (you have to take it apart to open it). It's also the wrong shape and wrong size. Even light dusting it caused it to fall apart. Particularly around the cockpit. The stand design was not great, required the set to actually lean on the ground, and that caused some bending. Underside of the wings are not finished and easy to see. There was more, but that was more than enough to make it annoying. And sitting next to the UCS Snowspeeder and Y-Wing it jut looked (to me) like an obviously a second rate effort. The short window of availability for it tells me I was not alone. I think they did a nice job on the main body and the build on that was interesting, but the rest was a let down. I love the ship, but in the end I just couldn't stand the model. Just my opinion of course. I brink linked it (thank goodness) so I didn't pay too much and that made the decision to use it for parts easier.

    [MOC] UCS Venator class-star destroyer (WIP)

    so far its on the way to being the best Venator MOC anywhere
  7. Well sure, but my feeling is that a huge number of the #gunshipgang voters were much more interested in the potential minifigs than the ship, and are just as likely to start a #boycott campaign if the gunship is selected and comes with only two figures instead of the full 501st battalion with four named characters and a dozen new prints. To be clear I like all the choices and will very likely buy which ever one makes it. But frankly out of the three, the gunship would be my last choice for a USC edition. Lets see what happens. Good luck!

    I had the B-Wing but there were so many things that bothered me about it I eventually took it apart. It hasn’t aged well I think. Looked like a poor cousin next to other UCS sets. The more recent system scale set is actually a better looking model to me. That would be a decent set for Lego to give a full redesign.

    haha- I was quoting (or trying to quote) Starhawk, not you. I agree with you. I just highlighted his bit and pressed the quote button. Sorry for the confusion. . I didn't by the ISD because I was not crazy about the design of the ship after seeing it upclose. If it had come with 5 awesome minifigs, it would have had no impact on my decision. I did by the MF. If the Falcon had come with just 2 ordinary minifgs, I still would have bought it, because its a fantastic looking design.

    I find this statement bizarre. A few minifigs are a nice little fun bonus in UCS kits but have virtually zero impact on my decision to buy one. I mean seriously, you layout 400 bucks for a display piece and the main thing you are concerned about is a few figures? To each his own I guess.

    Big thumbs up for this! Loved building that tower and all the little details in it. It's more like the Sandcrawler in being a MB/UCS hybrid. But its not SW obviously so I think it doesn't really count in this poll. :)
  12. this is pretty excellent

    Falcon is in a class on its own. But below that, the Slave I and the Sandcrawler were the ones I had the most fun building.

    To be honest I'd be pretty happy with any of those choices. I just think the Nebulon would be the most interesting to build in a large scale, and there hasn't been an official one before. If its a 200 dollar UCS like the Y-Wing or Snowspeeder, then the Bomber of Gunship. But if it's a big time 400 plus kit, then Nebulon!
