    1978 ... I was 5 years old when my father took me in the modest village cinema to watch a movie ... I was struck by what would have forever changed the way of making films ... Star Wars.
    The next day, rummaging in the "keg of dixan" full of Lego bricks started to build my first spacecraft in the saga.
    From then on it was easy to combine two of my biggest passions that generated the complete collection Lego Star Wars UCS.

    Bricklink updates some part numbers from time to time. At one point he also updated the code of the Star Wars minifigures by adding a zero to all the old minifigures as well. However whoever bought the TS-Project manual and has a parts list in version 01 can contact me and I will send the updated parts list with the correct codes.

    Great job TwoSolitudes! I am happy that you liked the MOC and that you enjoyed the construction phases. I spend a lot of time planning the construction phases to make the experience as fun as possible. Thanks again.

    Unfortunately there will be no LYGOD lighting kit for the B-Project. The costs of making the kits and the taxation makes LYGOD kits not convenient for those who make them. One of the reasons why the B-Project manual is late is also linked to this aspect. For months I have tried to coordinate the design and construction of the kits but the company that produced the kits no longer gives me guarantees and I have decided to eliminate them from the B-Project project. I'm sorry but alternative solutions would not have guaranteed the quality that distinguishes my projects. In the manual, however, I will insert a guide to be able to create a lighting kit with standard LED components that can be found online. As for the TS-Project kits, however, I believe they are still available. Just write an email to the distributor via my site.

    I believe that in both cases there are PROS and CONS: Solution no. 1) Limited instructions PROS: Few people = few parts lists and therefore a lower construction cost for those who intend to actually build the MOC CONS: Possible resale of the instructions once they are exhausted = increase in the cost of the instructions (which, however, I do not conceive or approve because a true AFOL should keep the construction manual with the MOC). Solution no. 2) Unlimited Instructions (PDF) PRO: Lower cost of instructions and constant over time CONS: Increase in people looking for parts with a consequent increase in the cost of parts and the rarity of some pieces. Furthermore, people who take the instructions after 1 or 2 years would end up with a wantet list with parts that are no longer recoverable or very expensive. Ultimately, considering that my MOCs are made up of many parts and therefore quite demanding from an economic point of view, I prefer solution no. 1 because I believe that it is the most appropriate and that it guarantees, to the people who really intend to build my MOCs, a lower expense. I am not interested in "making numbers" and I prefer to look at the quality and exclusivity of the project. This is the philosophy behind it all.

    I can't stop people from reselling their copy of the instructions. I find it something that makes no sense because I am assuming that a real AFOL should buy the manual to build the MOC and then keep everything in his collection. Whoever does this breaks the philosophy of the limited edition project and does not respect the high AFOLs who are still collecting the parts for the construction of the MOC.

    I don't know what you are referring to when you talk about PDF for $ 150 because I don't sell PDFs.

    The philosophy behind the limited edition of the instructions is necessary to contain the cost of parts for the construction of the MOC. It is useless to share countless PDF files and thus create a very large community that goes in search of the parts. Few instructions in circulation also means few people looking for parts .. and this helps to make parts cheaper and less rare.

    Thank you! .. very little is missing to the release of the instructions of the B-Project. Have faith..

    No, nothing changes. It can be used one or the other. It depends on what you find and which one is cheaper to buy.

    Yes, I confirm the release of the instructions by this summer. It was a very demanding job but I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel
