  1. [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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    UCS AT-AT? Only thing that hasn't been done and would be large enough to merit a high price.
  7. 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...
  8. Most Colorful Star Wars Sets

    UCS Ewok village, naboo starfighter, clone wars Y-wing?
  9. Bricklinking 10019 Rebel blockade runner

    Thanks all!
  10. 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?
  11. 75098 Assault on Hoth

    Disappointed that the snowspeeder has been put back. 10188 has been around forever and only just discontinued, so why a new DS already, and a chance to get the snowspeeder at a reasonable price would have been nice.
  12. Most of the designs I've seen seem to be for torso fronts only, and only a few for backs as well, with no side prints. Is this typical, as I'm looking to design a striped dress decal, and wonder if it would look a bit odd to have the stripes stop suddenly
  13. Favorite sets you own?

    - UCS imperial shuttle. Hardly looks like a Lego model, it's so smooth. - UCS Falcon. Brought a nearly complete bricklinked one for a good price, but keep looking for a proper one at a good price despite the extra cost. - UCS X-wing 10240. Hey, it's the X-wing! (And a simple nose mod makes it look even better) - A-wing 75003. The most accurate of all the system Rebel fighters, and looks great next to the Falcon and SHuttle. If only Lego made thr B/X/Y-wing to a similar standard..
  14. Another Bricklink project... UCS AT-ST 10174

    Nice work, I recently brinklinked the at-st and was thinking about modding an Interior but you've beaten me to it. Unless you want to wait to see what comes out in 2016, with the rumours of a new Death Star. I'm thinking that it'll be the DS2 and a display piece rather than a play set, as releasing something very similar to 10188 right after discontinuing it might get a lot of backlash.
