  1. [MOC] YT-1450 Light Freighter - "The Nadir"

    Yeah ! It's just so fitting for the universe. If I could paint well I'd be onto that so fast!
  2. My store has it displayed nearly vertically but the stand is custom made and behind a perspex screen. They recommended shopfittings.co.uk but I don't think that would have anything particularly specific... I'm sure someone will start producing them for consumers soon enough.
  3. [MOC] YT-1450 Light Freighter - "The Nadir"

    This is incredible!! Really stays true to the aesthetics of the original films, and there's such wonderful use of colour and detailing :) That last shot surprised me with how sleek it is, which also feels very Star Wars. I can just picture a McQuarrie painting of this!

    What's the age range for this site again ?
  5. [MOD] B/SF-17 Heavy Bomber

    I've added a couple more photos for you ! I really recommend it. It channels all my favourite parts of Star Wars design.
  6. [MOC?] UCS Falcon interior

    This was very enjoyable to watch ! I love the door technique so much 😍
  7. [MOD] B/SF-17 Heavy Bomber

    Hi ! Here's a few mods I've made to 75188 Resistance Bomber in the last few days. I first changed the engines to blue (I swear it seems like blue and orange are ALWAYS reversed on Star Wars vehicles!) I'm not a big fan of stud shooters in most contexts, so I switched the rear cannons out for display ones. I also wanted them to rotate together, which took some figuring out. I couldn't find a way to use friction pins to hold both cannons so I put another axle in with a little gear system like in Slave 1. I went through a few different iterations but this was the most compact solution I could find. I transferred the stickers in the bubble canopies to clear 2x2 slopes, and switched the brackets and tiles for a little more visibility. Shorter wings to be a little more in proportion. The interior was already great, but I tiled over the floor and added a weapons rack. I added a small ladder up to the gunner position and added in some more details and stickered controls by the gunner's hands. You can't really see them in this picture, though. The exterior of the turret is mostly the same but it was a great design to start with! For the cockpit I used a bunch of stickered elements from 75105 (getting slowly disassembled in preparation for the big one!) Snap is piloting for the moment, until we find out what the whole crew will be (probably not a bunch of X-wing pilots !) The rest of the changes are just minor cosmetics all over the hull, but I've already made this too long so here's just two more pictures. I didn't capture everything, of course ! This is a really great set! It looks beautiful and is so much fun. As an AFOL I tend to just display things but it's impossible not to fly this around the room ! Thank you :^)

    No worries ! check out the 2018 rumours board if you're interested in what's coming up next year !
  9. My store's getting a couple more on Monday but have had a lot more interest than stock! Wondering if I should go when they open, even though the delivery won't be til after 1pm :/

    It's coming early next year / December this year
  11. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    My store just said they'll be getting plenty of stock between the VIP release and the wide release. I think they've gauged interest fairly well
  12. Updating Your Minifigs

    Yeah, not sure about the short fringe and long sides, if only we could get l-loyd's in black!
  13. Updating Your Minifigs

    Thank you for photographing them!! That's a good solution, accurate to the source material too :)
  14. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    If you order it online then you'll get it before the 1st of october, depends on the shipping time! It doesn't seem like anyone's sure whether or not every store will have it on the 14th but if you live near the Cologne store it will be worth checking in on that day :)
  15. Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    Anyone else noticed the proportions of minifig faces changing recently? Seems like the faces are getting compressed vertically, with the mouth getting higher up the face. I noticed on this year's Lando and then with the Ninjago Movie figures, and now young Han in the UCS Falcon has the same thing going on. I wonder if it'll be a shift across the whole range of products in the next few waves 🤔
