  1. [WIP] [MOC] [LDD] AT-M6 PlusSize

    Good to see that the model is looking quite sturdy for the moment. Lets hope that the centre of gravity remains favourable for when you start building up the larger top section.
  2. MOC: Imperial Shuttle

    This is my upscale Imperial Shuttle, not quite mini figure scale, but close. I have finally built it after my original UCS set was in many pieces, something i regret not finishing as i was going through my "lego dark age" when i received it. The shuttle can fit one figure in the head and around 6 in the main body. The ramp extends down and has enough headspace for a mini figure to stand under it. The landing gear is retractable, and can also be mounted on a stand. The only issue with this design is that i underestimated the strength of the gear system. The wings are heavier then expected, thus the gear box can't lower and raise the wings with out carful assistance. It is strong enough to hold the wings in place, however. Perhaps when i feel brave in the future i will modify it and add an extra 2 gear boxes to strengthen it. More photos on my Flickr.
  3. Updating Your Minifigs

    Snoke's navigators are quite easily created using most of the Shadow Guard figure and a Jawa head. Only issue that some may see is that there aren't dark purple, like they are in the movie.
  4. [WIP] [MOC] [LDD] AT-M6 PlusSize

    Wow, progress is picking up. With all the legs built, how are you finding the weight so far, especially in the front legs? Does it place any difficulties of the joints?
  5. LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!

    New Tie Fighter seen in the trailer, doubt it will be made into a set considering we are just getting the normal variant. Lego doesn't release similar ships like that in a short space of time.
  6. Great guide! I love stormtroopers, and keeping track of the variations is an interest of mine. However, i noticed that you missed out on the Shoretrooper from the Tie Striker set. The one with the one blue arm.
  7. MOC: Imperial/First Order AT-ST

    (Sorry for poor picture quality.) Decided to finally get around to posting my MOC/MOD of the AT-ST walker, with TLJ showing off the FO version of it. I decided to have both versions present,with the original model converted simply by adding a few new parts. The MOC is based off the walker that came with the Battle of Endor set, with a almost identical head, but with the legs being built with ball joints to create a more movie accurate look. This makes the walker far more posable and flexible, however it can be difficult to set up and quite fidgety. The legs can be held in place by 'stoppers' built into the side of the legs. Original walker and the 5 parts used for FO version. Ball joint 4x4 piece with Bionical joint. More shots of the FO version:
  8. LDD Simple Y-wing

    Reminds me of the 1999 Y-Wing... nice to go back to the basics.
  9. [WIP] [MOC] [LDD] AT-M6 PlusSize

    Great job on the build! It looks great! Looking forward to seeing it constructed. David of Solid Brix Studios is planning to do a MOC of Crait and spoke about building larger AT-M6 walkers. Perhaps he might use this design.

  11. Lego predicts the future!

    Back in 2007 (a great year for lego Star Wars in my opinion) Lego released some ads to promote the first wave of sets, which included the first ever battle packs. However, they had to put the Clone Trooper battle pack in an ad featuring OT sets, considering the Droid one was done in a different ad. To get around the difference in the eras, Lego decided in the ad to give the stormtroopers clone markings and have them ride the speeds. For a few seconds at the start you can see a Imperial Shocktrooper leading the charge: Years later EA feature shocktoopers in their Star Wars Battlefront game, and lego makes them as figures!: It's a pretty crazy coincidence that amuses me greatly, i had to share it! Here is an image of the troopers using the speeder:
  12. [MOC] [LDD] Yavin IV Rebel Base

    Your custom figures are really neat! If only lego did duel moulding for star wars... I would love to see other designs!
  13. Future Star Wars Minifigs

    Updated Rebel Fleet troopers would be great, especially with their presence in Rouge One and Battlefront 2.
  14. [MOC] [LDD] Yavin IV Rebel Base

    So those pins on each side of the base are going to link together to create a bigger base? Neat set up, the build looks great! I think the green baseplate at the front needs a bit of decorating, to make it look less bland though. I suppose that would bump the piece count up a bit, i suppose.
  15. [WIP] [MOC] [LDD] AT-M6 PlusSize

    Are you going to build this beast when it is done? It looks like it's going to be a heavy model!
