    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I was lucky enough to find an open box sitting on a palette this morning at Target while 6 or 7 employees were rearranging the entire toy section - almost all the lego had been moved off shelves and they were still stocking the other themes. Luckily, whoever had taken some packs from the box started from the bottom right corner, so I went and took the first 6 packs from the back left row, and a few random ones from the middle. Came away with a Harry, Hermione, Moody, Tina, Newt, Cedric, Neville, and Graves. So the back left row seems to be the place to find him. Out of curiosity, when you say there's a pattern, where is the starting figure in y'all's lists? Front of the box, and then as listed moving towards the back? Or back of box to front?

    That's Dean Thomas, not Lee Jordan. Jordan hasn't been made into minifig form yet, though he'd be a good candidate for a wave 2 CMF with a new hairpiece and some sort of announcers microphone.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Target here in Colorado is stating their release date is July 8, so will have to wait another week to see if they have the Hogwarts Express, which was the only set I was unable to order from Lego's online store. May just head down the the Lego Store in Denver at some point to see if they have it there.

    I'm probably going to replace Cho Chang's head with the head from Rose Tico, and match her hands to fit. I think it will be a much closer look for her actress Katie Leung.

    Minifigure scale Y-Wing instructions

    Yeah, that matte painting is good for getting relative scales, but I know the artist took several liberties with perspective for it - for instance the A-Wings at the back are on a different perspective from the X-Wings to their left, despite being at relative similar depths in the hanger. So, not quite perfect, but close. I'd dig around for reference pics of the studio scale models ILM actually built and filmed for the movies - they were all 1/24 scale I think, so all the New Hope fighter ships were built to the same scale (mostly because they used the same pilot figures). Also, the life-size Y-wing and X-wing from ANH would be a good place to reference too. Here's my collection of minifig scale (or close) starfighters. Hope that helps give an idea of scale.

    Minifigure scale Y-Wing instructions

    I wouldn't trust that number at all. 24m is way too big for ANH era Y-Wings. These are the filming models, scaled to match the Astromech droids. The X-Wing is 12.5m and the Y-Wing is closer to 16m. All in all, I'd say Brickwright's MOC is pretty darn close.

    [MOC] The X-Wing Strikes Back

    Having just attempted the first wing using Cehnot's design, I'd be thrilled to see how you did this. Cehnot's may look excellent, but the whole wing is held together rather poorly by 4 studs, all of which are connected to tiles, so they aren't the best join. I'll push on and see how the rest of the build holds up outside LDD.
