    [MOC] Star Wars: The X-Wing Story

    Thanks, I was referring to wheels (on the cannons right in front of the wings, for example) rather than tiles though.

    [MOC] Star Wars: The X-Wing Story

    Just brought the instructions for this today and am looking on BrickLink at the moment. I can get nearly all the parts for £130 before postage, but the hot dog, 24 tooth technic gear, and 2x2 wheels with pin holes are proving complicated. Do the hot dogs need to be black, and do the wheels need to be LBG or will grey do as well?
  3. Would a UCS set actually make it to shelves without any official confirmation or pictures though?

    Whats going on with the 75192 Falcon availability??

    Couple of possibilities: they’re not making too many in case they end up shelf warming. £650 A’s a lot of money and there may well not be a huge market at that price range. In addition, a lot of people may be buying to sell for a quick profit on eBay or stockpiling them because they think it’s going to be worth as much as 10179 at its peak after it gets retired. or maybe Lego really are short supplying it to create hype..... ?

    [REVIEW] 75192 - Millennium Falcon

    I just finished building the hunk of junk tonight, and it's now in the place on my TV unit previously filled by 10179. Cracking build, think I enjoyed it more than the Saturn V even. There are some parts with annoying gaps though, and I have some ideas on modding it. Problem is that my parts box isn't large enough, so I'm either going to have to try them in LDD or buy a load of misc parts.

    Cheers fella!

    Millennium Falcon, 75192 in LDD

    Are you able to post the LDDs you've done so far, there's some mods I'd like to do on the framework?
  8. Doubt Lego would sell the printed cockpit piece by itself (think there's licensing issues, for example), and I think it and other pieces unique to 75192 are going for big money on bricklink, even before you get the time and money involved in buying the 2k+ extra pieces.
  9. I've called a couple of times and stopped by in person a few times. It really is pot luck at the minute, as the staff I've spoken to have just shrugged and said they'll have more stock in by Xmas. deliveries are on Monday apparently but they didn't have any falcons this week.
  10. Is there any straightforward way of doing this?! I've got the Lxf File for this x-wing MOC: but out when I try to save it to XML in LDD, it says a particular brick cannot be found. I've tried other websites, other file formats, dragging and dropping/copying and pasting directly in Bricklink, and nothing works. Is there a way of doing it that doesn't have to be needlessly complicated?

    UCS AT-AT? Only thing that hasn't been done and would be large enough to merit a high price.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I took the plunge and coughed up a huge sum for a proper boxed Falcon shortly before Xmas. Now I've just gotta decide whether this is a valid rumour and I need to sell it on after just a few weeks while prices are still high...

    Thanks all!
  15. If anyone's done this, is it cheaper than buying a complete set? Apparently the wheels for the engines are expensive, but are there any other rare parts to watch out for?
