    I've been going back and forth on this today and I now think if you had wedge's helmet from sw089 and zev senesca's from sw826... Wedge's is probably better for Farns Monsbee after all (with the black/yellow marks on the... peak? and all). When my 2nd one arrives, I think I'll take an eraser to the sides of one of them (as poor old Monsbee has apparently not had much success at shooting down TIEs). Having the phoenix on the top would make it perfect, but I'm not brave enough for drawing/painting on my lego. Torius Chord's helmet is actually very close to the one Zev Senesca uses in ESB, so I made the switcheroo today.

    @ShadowStrike i just realised I forgot the "not" in there somehow! oops! It's *not* like it's totally wrong.

    I dislike the colour of the resistance speeder pilot in the MF pack, Nodin Chavdri should be wearing colours much closer to Tallie's... but he doesn't have a neck scarf. what would be the best way to remove the neck scarf from Tallie's body - https://brickset.com/minifigs/sw884/a-wing-pilot-(tallissan-lintra)-(75196) ? It's only a very small patch to remove. Would tape around the edge and some hard scrubbing with an eraser work?

    Dual sided head wouldn't work very well with the kepi, unless he scrubs one side. I believe it's this one - https://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=3626cpb1222&in=M ?

    Decided to go for the Major Brance face for Heff Tobber. And then realised I didn't want to buy another Major Brance and be left with a useless torso - or worse, go down the rabbit hole of buying another General Emmett as well to use the head and hair to make him in his Major guise from TFA... Then i realised the head in sw892 is identical and I think I'm happy enough that it doesn't represent anyone closely enough to not swap it out. [edit: just had another look and from the costume it's Sgt Cobel Tansirch but a search doesn't reveal his face]. Hello Heff!

    I asked earlier and they said hopefully within the next week or two. Fingers crossed the production goes smoothly, will be ordering as soon as I see them! Should be similar pattern but different colours. Maybe that's the next one Firestar could do. On the one hand, damn them for retconning Wenton Chan out... OTOH at least there'll only be one plain blue firebird helmet (Hard Binli) now. Don't forget Toby Hefferman as Heff Tobber.

    The helmets they hold in the visual guide are different from each other. Ralo Surrel's is Red and Black checked, Wion Dillems' is red and white checked.

    Add to the fact Paril Ritta isn't a U wing pilot. I agree the stock figure works as Calum Gram. I need good bearded face suggestions for Heff Tober (Blue 8) if anyone has found one?

    i'd never noticed that tiny sliver of helmet! But from the angle we're looking at and the tiny amount of helmet on show, it could also be the same as either Chaff Korus (plain helmet, but Red not blue), Pedrin Gaul (Red 5, because the grey under the hump at the side probably wouldn't be visible at that angle), Broan Danurs (for the same reason as Pedrin Gaul. helmet is same as Pops from Gold Squadron... so apparently an option when firestar update their site next, if you don't want a ton of identical helmets) or it could also be the same as Green Twelve's helmet, but that is used elsewhere for another "unidentified x wing pilot". I wonder if some extras were unavailable for reshoots. until there's a face in the right skin tone (without a beard) from either lego or firestar, I probably won't be making him anyway.

    I just came across him. His helmet looks pretty exotic, shame it isn't shown in the Visual Guide :( When Merrick address the council, there's another unidentified blue squadron pilot holding that helmet but it is most definitely not Paril Ritta. It looks like it's this guy https://www.imdb.com/name/nm7181893/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t150 to me. I can't find any remotely canon appearances of Paril Ritter/Blue 12 where he even has a helmet... he's not credited in the movie either.

    REVIEW: 75209 Han Solo's Landspeeder

    9/10, 9/10, 7/10, 9/10 - shouldn't the overall score be an 8? It seems a little random to give something a 6.

    Indeed! There's no chance of lego adding anything into the mix before the end of 2018... so the only people who can move the goalposts now are firestartoys. speaking of which, i keep going back and forth on whether having printed arms for only a couple of pilots would help them stand out in a good way or in a bad way. I was thinking of giving them to Gold Leader, Blue Leader... maybe I'll wait til I can make Red Leader too.

    It's sad that the only choices for the myriad headset wearing shuttle pilots/crew/technicians etc. are the closed mouth and open mouth ones lego make... hint hint.

    Did Blue squadron have Y wings? I guess they did. I did mention in an earlier comment he was one or the other, but it's odd enough having a group of X wings and U wings together without then having a random Y wing thrown in, especially as we never see him do anything. I'm just worried about the cost! Finishing up Red and Gold squadrons would be 17-18 pairs alone?

    He is Blue 12, but he's not a U wing pilot. He is flying an X wing (he has the same chest pack as Blue Leader, Blue 2, Blue 3, Blue 4, etc)
