    Part Question - Propellor Size

    No worries, thank you for trying and for your information. Explains why I can't find any then, but was hoping it was just me being daft or there was perhaps a discontinued Duplo propellor or something that would suffice. Funnily enough it's actually to replace plates and tiles, namely on the 31064 Creator clipper plane. I know I'm 'missing the point', however I actively dislike how on the Creator range everything except for the minifigs is brick built, even the animals, much prefer the application of specialised pieces on the main System range - there's just some things that never look as good when made in the 80s way. So after having filled the cockpit with printed components and smoothed out and lengthened the pontoons, I wanted to have more realistic props on it like 60116 Ambulance Plane, but sadly there's nothing smaller than those props without going too small and those ones themselves hit the side of the plane.

    Part Question - Propellor Size

    Just wondering if someone has the definitive answer for what the next size down in propellors is from this one: https://brickset.com/parts/design-15790 It's literally just around one stud too big for what I want (and hits the side of the plane in question), but everything else I find is way too small (bought around 5 different types so far and everything's tiny). I don't mind what kind of Lego theme it's from, just want the next size down from this or just definitive information on whether there is nothing else close? Many thanks!

    Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    Has anyone bought the new Imperial landing craft yet and determined how easy it is to modify to get those side compartments to close seamlessly? That gap is utterly hideous and should not be on a finished retail model if you ask me.

    Thanks for the heads-up about Merrick, just bought his helmet by itself off Firestar Toys, going to be going on their custom head I already have for him!

    I’m going to hazard a guess that he means with the hover tank itself being discontinued and then the armour not being featured in Solo or any other major current media (Clone Wars, Resistance and Ep 9) that there likely won’t be any further sets to feature it in the future to expand their army building availability.

    Could be a case of firestar to the rescue again then. Well if that's true then that suits me fine given I've got the Firestar Merrick head already, means I only need to buy the helmet, which should be nice and readily available on Bricklink

    Nope, he came with this book and was called "Special Forces Commander". Jek-14 also wears this helmet design with 75051 Jedi Scout Fighter, and a blue version dubbed a "Special Forces Clone Trooper" came with 75018 Jek-14's Stealth Starfighter (a re-coloured E-Wing from the old EU).

    Looking good! Only bit that doesn't work for me is the fact that the two regular troopers are holding M41A pulse rifles from Aliens... which for me is just too famous a gun from another sci-fi franchise to blend naturally. But if you like 'em that's all that matters

    If I may ask, what's your reluctance to buy a Clone Army Customs helmet? They look great and in my opinion far better than the Arealight version. Arealight Vs COC:

    Not even the hair from Merida's mini doll? I know it's not tied back but it's about the closest type to the actress's hair I can think of at present. https://brickset.com/minifigs/dp002/merida

    Eyebrows are a bit dark, but The Mandarin?

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Just ordered two of the Conveyex (to combine into a longer train) for my son for Christmas. They were reduced on Amazon by £20, plus I'm not on the UK mainland so got VAT off too, £48 each rather than the £79.99 RRP, a much more appropriate price! Granted it looks nowhere near as good as the MOCs I've seen, but I don't have the talent or parts for that, plus it's what the little man wants so gotta go with it! I'm sure I can modify the front a bit better anyway... even just two 1x3 dark bluish grey tiles and a row of three trans red 1x1 titles to smooth up the front and give it a windscreen I'm sure will improve it.

    Very nice... I'd done something so similar to that! However mine are Clone Army Custom helmets and I used Jace Malcom to become Boss from Republic Commando (well, almost, his more accurate helmet wasn't available at the time! https://www.firestartoys.com/Shop/Minifigure-Headgear/Clone-Army-Customs-Headgear/39907-Clone-Army-Customs-~-Commando-Sarge-Helmet.html) and gave a Republic Trooper the more commonly featured helmet from the CGI mini-movies. I did in fact buy him a white single-shoulder plastic pauldron, but don't like it, it covers too much of the body detail. I'm also not personally a fan of brick-built weaponry, so they've got custom ones... which may or may not be Brickarms? Can't remember haha!

    Hmm it’s interesting, it sorta works. However when it comes to official chinstrap heads, there is already some fair variety; two sides of the female immigration officer, two sides to the 2016 Death Star trooper, two sides to the the 2012 Death Star trooper, plus you could use the modern Rebel commando (and older one if you don’t mind plain black eyes) and the reverse of the T-16 pilot - that’s 8 or 9 off the top of my head straight away!

    Problem is, unless you know a custom one that hangs low, unfortunately they won't be compatible with the neck fur.
