    Review: 10212 Imperial Shuttle

    It's really nice to build and looks superb (I finished mine a couple of days ago) but the top wing is very unstable and wobbles a lot! The only other things that disappointed me were i) the lack of a ramp and ii) my version appears to be cream rather than white (all of the photos I've seen show it as white, as does the box). However, it's definitely worth the money. Have fun building!

    LEGO Star Wars 2011 Pictures & Rumors

    I’m not usually interested in PT sets, but I’m quite tempted by 7962. The Podracers look beautifully detailed, and far better than the previous versions. I was determined to buy the new Echo Base but, after seeing the new photos, perhaps I’ll invest one of these instead!

    REVIEW: 7957 Sith Nightspeeder

    Great review thanks, and a very nice Anakin, but far too many stickers for me!

    What's in a name ???

    Lobot is one of my favourite characters in The Empire Strikes Back. Although he doesn’t do much, I like the idea that he was linked directly with Bespin's main computer system (via his headband attachment), and he also looks great as a minifigure!

    Hi, I’m from the UK & in my mid-thirties. I was completely obsessed by Lego when I was a child & my collection gradually evolved from Space to the first Technic sets. Then a couple of years ago my lovely wife bought me the UCS motorised AT-AT and it re-kindled my love of Star Wars & Lego (which she has regretted a lot! ). After collecting an entire set of vintage figures, I’ve focused on Star Wars Lego. I love the original trilogy sets, especially UCS; I also own a UCS Imperial Shuttle & a UCS Millennium Falcon, which is my pride & joy! My favourite SW film is the Empire Strikes Back; it has three of my favourite settings (Hoth, Bespin City & Dagobah). My favourite characters are Yoda, the Emperor & Lobot.....! Cheers, Robin

    What did you buy today?

    I finally ordered a new K-3PO today from Ebay. I've wanted him for ages but I couldn’t bring myself to pay the going rate for a new & sealed 7666, so I decided to get him separately.

    UCS Sandcrawler MOC

    Simply superb, a truly beautiful creation. This is one of the very best MOCs that I’ve seen; the detail is breathtaking. I don’t think that it would be possible to improve this in any way, and it’s great that you used Technic LEDs, to keep it 100% Lego. I’m really looking forward to seeing the video of this!

    LEGO Star Wars 2011 Pictures & Rumors

    I’m not too sure what to make of this; the Bacta tank & Medical area look really good, although it reminds me of Home One (7754) which I bought & really regretted! I appreciate that it’s a play set, but I had really high hopes; perhaps they were a little too high. I guess that’s Brickplummer’s fault! I’m not too sure about R-3PO, I was hoping that they would re-issue K-3PO as I missed 7666 (and I refuse to pay the current Ebay price for a sealed set!)
  9. Hi, I've just purchased the 10212 (UCS Shuttle) as a Birthday present to myself! I bought it direct from Lego, so no discount, but I did manage to get a ARF Trooper which was well worth the premium. I found Brickplummer's version of the Endor landing pad recently & I convinced myself that I had to buy one!
