    The Tribute to The Razor Crest - Released!

    There's a guy on Flickr who reverse-engineered Marshal Bananas Falcon and is in the process of making instructions for it. Not sure if BV will sell it or not.

    Brick Vault UCS Shuttle Tydirium

    Yah I get that. Their earlier reviews were pretty nosy and annoying when they kept on bragging about how perfect their models are, but I think they got a little better now. I usually check out the OG builder's social page before and I would sometimes ask if their models have any rare parts or really fragile sections. Did you test the motors before you placed them in the model? If it did work and nothing was misplaced then the wires could be damaged or loosened from the motor. I have similar bending in the video too, but I wouldn't worry about it too much about it. There's only a slight bend when the wings are down and it bends the most when you raise or lower the wings.

    Brick Vault UCS Shuttle Tydirium

    I've finished mine about a month ago and there was a little bending but nothing too major. I was able to display mine with open wings perfectly fine. It could be because of the low clutch on the bricks or you might have missed something while building. That is true for some of their models, but a good number of the models they host are pretty sturdy (Jeracs TIE models in particular). Usually, the stability issues that people have are either due to being inexperienced builders or bought bad quality parts (low clutch, chipped, etc.). I've built a good number of BV's and other MOC builders models and I haven't had major stability issues some people have. The biggest issues for me are BL sellers who sell used for new :/

    [MOC] Imperial Star Destroyer - The Eviscerator

    @2mpaired Looking forward to the new update! I really appreciate the effort for making the modification easy for people who already built it.

    Best UCS-scaled Razor Crest?

    I would probably go with papaglops because his cockpit design is really done well and I like how modular it is even more. However, there are quite a few parts that are very rare so you have the disadvantage of paying extreme prices for a petty few parts or at worst, have those parts run out. Jhaes design is really good too and I think he was able to get the shaping much better and smoother than papaglops. No idea if it has rare parts so that'll be a risk for you to take. Or you can ask him if there are any rare parts. 1) Both are pretty close to minifig scale. 2) I think papaglops engine design looks more proportional, but I think Jhaes fuselage looks alittle more proportionally accurate. 3) From the video reviews of both, papaglops design looks more sturdy. 4) Questions like that have only one answer (until it actually releases or TLC goes out-of-business). Maybe. No one but LEGO can give you the first yes or no answer.

    looking for an AT-ST

    Only for people who've never seen an AT-ST Well the BV AT-ST has better details but it's still going to be more expensive than getting the 75153 brand new. If you're tight on money then I'd go for the 75153 or get the raider and recolor it. If not, I'd go for the BV one since it got better details. Don't know how stable that one is though...

    [MOC] BTL-S3-ish Y-Wing x 2

    I haven't seen a thread solely dedicated about that (veteran EB's, please correct me if I'm wrong), but there was a thread about how knockoffs would steal or just resell MOC builder's instructions, which did bring up the example you said. Heres the link to the thread I'm talking about:
  8. It turned out much better than I had expected. I'm probably not going to buy this, but I'm now very interested in how the set will look overall. I wonder if there will be a hanger bay for the falcon or other ships.

    Brick Vault UCS Shuttle Tydirium

    I think dmac nailed the cockpit design a little better, but MB's design is still one of the best. The stand could use some love though haha :) After some shuffling and using B&P the cost was around ~$650 with shipping with PFs. I don't mind used pieces and most of the time the used pieces I get are practically new. Still a gamble though. I might omit the lights or use something else because the LEGO lights are just awful (bulky and inefficient). The wing mechanism can be replaced, but you're going to have to redesign the interior frame or omit the interior. But yeah, definitely an expensive model to make, but that's the price for better haha. If you don't really care about the intricate details and accuracy the UCS shuttle is a better option, but if you want something more impressive, this model is the one to go. Of course you can always upgrade the UCS one to your own liking too.

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    Still got an order in warehouse from July 18 and when I received one of my other orders it was missing an lot and a couple of my pieces were in the wrong color :( I hope you guys get your orders soon
  11. Hmm does that then mean LEGO will just be selling all the stock they prepared beforehand? And after it sells out its just done?

    [MOC] UCS AT-AP

    Another great AT-AP MOC! I really like the greebling detail on the back and the interior is well done as well. Great work!
  13. Thanks for clearing it up. Good to know that I can get the new Vader for a better deal now haha
  14. I hope no ones stupid enough to actually buy from them.....
  15. The builds are bad, but they're not going for accuracy like a MOC. And yes, of course you'd get this set for the figures what else? This is a great opportunity to make a clone army as well and who knows when we might another set like it. I find it disappointing that LEGO still fails to make enough stock even though the high demand is obvious.
