    Star Wars Rebels UCS Ghost - Minifig Scale

    Ghost survived the trip to Bricks LA 2018. Actually it wasn't that bad at all. Only lost 1 panel on the way back so pretty good all things considered. Look at that puny fig-scale AT-AT trying to look impressive next to the Ghost!

    Star Wars Rebels UCS Ghost - Minifig Scale

    Thank you all for the awesome comments. To answer a few questions. It costs about $1500 in parts. Depending on how thrifty you can be maybe less. It's almost 12,000 pieces so there is only so much you can do to get that number down. Is it swoosh-able? Well it takes 2 people just to move it so not really. The video really doesn't do the size justice, this thing is massive. It's actually funny how much bigger it is than a minifig scale AT-AT. If the Rebels had the Ghost on Hoth they would have been fine! The Rouge one thing cracked me up. Sadly it was not intentional. If I had a nickle for every time Jack misspelled something in a video I would be a rich man.
  4. Hi everyone this is my first time posting a new topic here and I figured why not start with something BIG. With over 250 hours in design time and 80 more spend during the first build, our minfig scale Lego Ghost from Star Wars: Rebels is finally alive. Actually it takes a lot of its added detail & inspiration from the Rogue One movie so it's kind of a hybrid cartoon/live-action model. We measured the dimensions perfectly from the 3D images that Disney released with the Rogue one and matched it up with the official sizing. It's bigger than the USC falcon in every way and we don't know where to put it. Like we really don't have room for it... Instructions for this beast are available here https://www.brickvault.toys/collections/star-wars/products/star-wars-ghos Personally I've really enjoyed the Rebels TV show, especially the later seasons and considering how monumental the Ghost was in establishing the rebellion we felt it deserved a minifig scale model to sit side by side with other iconic ships like the Falcon and Slave 1. We will be showing it off at Bricks LA this weekend (provided it survives the trip) The engines were difficult to say the least.. We also modeled the crew quarters area. It would have been fun to do the mess hall as well but we couldn't think of a practical way to remove the entire top rear section of the ship so we decided to just avoid it. Phantoms are in the works :)

    [MOC][WIP][LDD] Minifig Scale Rebels Ghost Build

    @IcarusBuilds Thanks for the reply, and no apology necessary I was more defending myself against @sokewl insinuation. I find it quite cool to see how we both came to the same design conclusions about certain parts of the ship and then completely different in other areas.

    [MOC][WIP][LDD] Minifig Scale Rebels Ghost Build

    Just thought I would drop by and say hello. I'm Charlie and I started designing the fig scale Ghost for www.Brickvault.toys in January - see twitter post below. At that time I was completely unaware that anyone had attempted a fig scale ghost and was honestly excited to be the first person to do it. Part way through the build I started to collaborate with a builder named Sean and he finished up the design for me. We drew inspiration from the most recent seasons of Rebels and the official images from Rogue One which shows off some really cool added details for the live action version. Part way through the design process we did become aware of this ghost via Daryl NG's Flickr page and then from there to this forum. We of course looked at the model but in all honesty we had finished the majority of the design work at that point. When comparing our finished design with @IcarusBuilds I do see some similarities, and I honestly believe a lot of that is due to there being an obvious way to build specific areas. And also the fact that we are both building the same ship at the same scale a wedge plate technique is the clear solution to many of the Ghost's difficult angles. Anyway I don't mean to sound defensive I just don't want any copycat insinuations to get out of hand before we have a chance to defend our design. I really like @IcarusBuilds take on the Ghost and I hope he is able to build it some day. We ended up at almost 12k parts so the BrickLink order was painful to say the least :/
