    Oh man, I'm getting flashbacks to Rogue Squadron! GREAT build dude, looks just like it's depicted in the old essential guide! Looks like you included the side access hatch and the chin-mounted grenade launcher too, great work. The angling of the viewport is spot-on and the toes are great as well, although they look like they would be very fragile in real bricks. Great job on the legs, are you able to pose them at all? The ladder for the side vents is great too! You may want to add parts 63864pb036R & 63864pb036L or something similar to the front of the legs, most of the images have that. Searching "danger stripes" in decorated tiles on bricklink came up with a ton of options. Are you planning on building it in real bricks?

    Of course, happy to help! You really did do a stellar job on the interior and if you're happy with the outside that's all that matters!

    Awesome build Koz, one of the best I've seen, and studless to boot! Very well sized with awesome details, I particularly like how you built the engines in the back! Adding the two jumper plates on the underside to allow it to float is excellent. The shaping is spot on, the only think you're missing is Rey's cargo net on the port side. Do you think you could add that and still have the tools?

    [MOC] Star Wars Imperial Turbo Laser Turret

    Hey man, pretty cool build! You did a really great job making the interior detailed without being cluttered, and the little things like doors and ladders are well done! I especially like the angled workstations. However, the exterior doesn't have quite the same amount of detail and could do with some greebling and angles. You might try flaring out the sides and base a little more, the XX-9 Turbolaser starts out with a gradual slope and then really flattens out toward the base. That might make the exterior a little less plain! The cannons look a little anemic in comparison to the rest of the turret head in my opinion, maybe beef those up a little? I might also fill in some of the cannon "track", it looks like it extends a bit too far back. You could also throw in some dark tan, sand green, or sand red pieces to indicate rust or corrosion as well as some dark bley maybe?

    @Darth Bjorn the legs are from the 2016 Ghostbusters minifigs, I erased the printing very poorly and you can sorta see some of the stripes still! It was my first time doing it and I used a Mr Clean magic eraser which unfortunately also takes the shine off the piece so I'm not sure I'd recommend it. @Mr. Cube you're totally right on the visor being too high, that looks way better! @Mandalorianknight I was really hoping we'd get a full Beskar Mando with the Razor Crest, but with a season two I hope we get one soon! Hopefully TLG is better than they were with Rebels on releasing sets. @marvelBoy123 That's a good suggestion, I think someone in factions did that (Bjorn or you?) and it's better than not having one at all, I should just make one! And I already quoted Mandalorianknight but damn I would LOVE an MBS Chalmun's Cantina; they've been doing a lot of different head molds so I keep holding onto hope (which is what rebellions are built on anyway).

    @Daddy_Stardust that hairpiece works GREAT, is it hard plastic or rubberized? Thanks for the link, I hadn't seen it yet! Your updated Asajj looks great as well. @Samppu Mara's hair is kinda close to that piece in my old By the Emperor's Hand comic, but pretty much all of my old EU covers are either a bright or deep red, while my newer essential guide to characters has it as a pretty deep orange! With so many different representations, you're right that it's much personal preference! :) @Mandalorianknight Thanks for the heads-up on the McCree torso, I have one of those somewhere! I think the only non-purist pieces are a handful of Arealight helmets - one for the Old Republic Trooper, a tan Clone Commando I slapped on a Shoretrooper, and the Mando and Fett ones. (That's not including the Brickarms blasters, oops. Another slippery slope) The official Din Djarin helmet is just... really not great, so I don't feel bad about it, and the Fett jetpack needs the missile on top which I suppose isn't as big. I wish they had printed Djarin's visor higher and made it in regular pearl silver and added more detail. Although I'm not going to lie if someone came out with a good mold for a Ponda Baba, I would buy that thing in a hearbeat. I've never given up hope that someday they'll throw him in a cantina set... my first SW RPG character was an Aqualish, and he's the only character I haven't been able to make a minifig of!

    @V-2929, the Supercommandos look great with the printed arms, and good choice on the light bley hands! @ARC2149Nova I like the figs a lot but I think Mara might benefit from a red hair piece? I like Luke's hair too, and nice Vong. @Mandalorianknight your clones are very impressive, you must be very proud. ;) Seriously though nice job mix and matching the armor, you have some cool combos. The Santa Fett armor is prob'ly the best choice but it still looks like Santa to me... The Guavian merc armor might work for a non-traditional armor? Not sure. Also, what torso does the mando with goggles have? @LegoCalrissian, I received the Mando and Boba parts from NashVegas! Looks great. For anyone interested, here's a comparison between the Lego and Arealight Mando and Boba helmets: The Arealight Mando helmet is much closer to the right color and has detailing on the "ears" and the top of the helmet, while the Boba just has more flaking paint and better printing. The arealights both seem a little big at the bottom of the helmet to me but I'm still happy with them. Here's a comparison between the official and the Arealight jetpacks, the detailing and shaping is much better on the arealight but it also sticks WAY farther out from the back of the minifig.

    Thanks man! :) But I do need to practice more builds, so I'll start practicing with what I have!

    I don't know how I missed seeing that post, you did a great job! And I've been toying with joining Factions or Dark Times, but I don't have a large part pool that isn't from the 90s (few brackets/SNOT bricks) which kinda limits my building. I've bricklinked stuff for specific projects but I'm much better at modifying than building de novo!

    [MOC] First Order Treadspeeder with TUTORIAL

    Great build and great video, Koz! Awesome job, it really looks like the in-movie model. Also excellent inclusion of the launch feature! I was pretty disappointed the official set doesn't go it. How long did it take you to design?

    @V-2929, happy to post them!! I still haven't purchased any Firestar arms yet, I feel like it's going to be a really slippery slope and since I only have four Shoretroopers I felt like it was okay. I have my eye on Firestar's Mando Battlepack arm pack though. I agree on EclipseGrafx filling in some of the proverbial gaps, although there aren't many left! I'd love some printed Dengar and 4-LOM arms. I think Bossk would have to be dual-molded and Zuckuss doesn't really need them. I noticed in the photos of the Mando arms that it looks like the printing is raised slightly, but while I can see the raise under a loupe it's very difficult to tell by eye. They're my first printed arms so I'm not sure if that's standard, but these are all for display only so I don't care! They look great. @LegoCalrissian Nashvegas Bricks was out of the Boba jetpacks for quite a while but I just checked and he has a pack with an arealight helmet, jetpack, and vambraces so I'm picking that up, I figure I can use the vambraces and helmet somewhere else! Thanks for reminding me to check again. I'm seeing if Nashvegas Bricks will combine shipping with an arealight Silver Ranger helmet for my Mando too, the official helmet is so dark.

    I never think about sail pieces, that's a phenomenal part usage!

    Barabel have the least snouty face, so that might work! I always think of them as dark red from the old Shadows of the Empire comic, but most of the images show them as green! Really, any of the four would work great as an "in-helmet" head. I'm a gigantic SW nerd but I hadn't heard of the Tarasin, so thank you! I'll have to introduce one into my SWRPG. Edit: Part 34721b from the Ninjago Shark Army General's collar might work really well for a Tarasin's neck frill in the future!

    Thanks for the suggestion on the rubber band! I have a ton of those from old sets, but they were in the attic for a long time so they're all degraded... I'll pick one up on my next order. Does the square profile look okay? I REALLY need to get a jetpack, I want to get an arealight one but I couldn't find a US seller and with COVID I know that international shipping can be problematic. Does anyone have any suggestion? The CAC one is okay but I do like the Arealight one more. Glad to have shown you the TIE short! It's SO good, I try to watch it regularly. Otaking has a fun PDF dossier that gives some background on the four "main characters" which really fun! @Reaper I can't wait to see it! There are some helmets that are way better than the stock one...
