    If I may, I honestly interpreted the post as "why doesn't LEGO make better sets like these MOC's" and I think that was the issue with this post. People should understand that LEGO cannot make sets to the quality of MOC's that people have made. It's like saying why can't Toyota make cars like Ferrari? Anyways, if the post just talked about how disappointing the busts were I honestly would have agreed with OP and probably gotten the responses OP was expecting for.

    [MOC] Krusty Krab

    WOW! This is a fantastic MOC of the Krusty Krab. It makes me wonder why LEGO never did a UCS style for the Spongebob line. One thing concerns me though the fact that the model is made in digital bricks won't affect the passability of this would it?

    As much as I love building the MOC's people have shared/sold in the LEGO community, its ridiculous to compare MOC's to official LEGO sets, probably incomparable for most. There are a lot of constraints and standards that LEGO designers have to achieve to make it a mass-producible product. And with MOC's the only restriction is the designer's imagination. And as many have said here, people need to stop comparing MOC's with sets. Asides from that, not a fan of these "busts", but an interesting idea LEGO is going for.

    ship engine design

    I really hope you guys realize that macaron35 wasn't the one who designed this model... The original designer's Flickr username is "noblebun". You can check out his other builds by clicking on the photo.

    [MOC] Munificent Class Star Frigate

    Fantastic work! I really like how you were able to create the bowing armor in the front and rear and great greebling details as well. Great work! Any chance we'll see a built model of this?
  6. Yes, I very much agree. Arguing over toys seems a bit much... If people like something you don't like, just say good for you and move on. No need to argue and call people names over toys or movies. Anyhow, anybody check out the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda Brickheadz??? I hope LEGO's distribution team doesn't screw up the release like usual...
  7. Great work on your research! To really finalize it I'd highly prioritize posting pictures of the BYO (build your own) Christmas X-Wing, and I do know you are in the process of doing so. Just one thing though, I'd remove that statement of buying the Chinese knockoff completely. An absolutely unnecessary statement.
  8. Well, the only way for me to buy the gunship will be only if there are some really nice figures in the set. But I hope the Nebulon gets a chance in the future
  9. Looking great! But I'll have to hold off on this one until I recover from the Eviscerator.....

    (MOC) - Cavegod's UCS Sandcrawler

    You don't have to. BV always sends the updated instructions to the people who bought the old ones.

    Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    I don't see how advertising an MOC is considered a "General SW Question"...
  12. It definitely can, however, I think that only applies to ships that are pretty large like the Falcon, Slave 1, and the Imperial Lambda shuttle. But for ships like the X-Wing it'll be too small to be made in minifig scale for a UCS set. And the gunship is not that large of a ship in minifig scale so it'll have to be larger than minifig scale to be considered UCS.

    What is your favorite UCS Set of all time?

    Just ignore it. I say the Slave 1 due to the smooth build and clever techniques. And doesn't require too many mods to be up to my standards. An interior is really the most lacking thing for the Slave 1. Next to that I'd say UCS Falcon (2017) and then Lambda shuttle.

    [MOC] Imperial Star Destroyer - The Eviscerator

    Hey just a quick question, for the 2555 1x1 clips do we need 553 of them or 768 of them? I heard someone on IG say they had to get 768, but on the PL from BV shows 553.
  15. Definitely agree how the bomber and gunship will be better off as system scale sets. It'll be much closer to minifig scale like that too. I'm not sure if I understood correctly but if the Nebulon was built to be accurately scaled to the UCS ISD the frigate will have to be 8 inches long lol. Unless you meant to the scale the UCS ISD is in, then that'll be a good scale to do.
  16. My vote for Nebulon B since I really don't like the oversized UCS models LEGO makes and I'd rather have minifigure scaled ships. Also, we never got any set from the rebel fleet asides from starships like the X-Wing, Y-Wing, etc. However, I think the Gunship might make the win because its more popular and recognizable to the general mass. The Nebulon and the bomber are a little more for hard fans. But either way, I'm glad LEGO is allowing fans to vote for a future UCS set.
  17. Nice. Is it still going to be released by BrickVault or someone else?
  18. 100% agree. Looking at the trailer it seems like there's going to be some large battles going on so it would be the most reasonable and profitable choice to make sets with a lot of clones. And if they do make a clone battle pack, it doesn't need to be 501, it could just be any standard clone. But no named characters, which is dumb to do overall.

    ISD Intimidator, Monarch, or Eviscerator?

    I personally prefer the Eviscerator because it looks the most accurate and detailed out of the three. Also, how the builder achieved using a single stand to hold it up is very impressive whereas the others need two/three stands to hold it up. But as everyone here said, really up to you and what you like the best. And you can't go wrong with whatever you pick as there all great models. Well I did have the Aggressor, but after I saw the Eviscerator and some debating, I parted my Aggressor to make the Eviscerator. But thats still a great model because of its interior.

    [MOC] Imperial Star Destroyer - The Eviscerator

    Idk how many of you guys are in this situation, but if your planning on breaking down Raskolnikov's ISD to build this, about 9600 parts from the Aggressor can be used for this. So assuming your not including parts from your collection, you'll have to buy around ~9500 more parts to build this.

    [MOC] Imperial Star Destroyer - The Eviscerator

    You have to manually copy-paste the contents of the file to the "Upload BrickLink XML format" section. I recommend copy-pasting from the txt file instead of the XML file.

    SFS TIE/x1 Advanced

    Probably because a lot of people have been making other peoples MOC's lately lol

    [MOC] Imperial Star Destroyer - The Eviscerator

    I think this one is a bit better of a display piece rather than the Monarch mainly because of the stand and the greebling. I don't really like the stand for the Monarch where it has 3 stands (2 on the core and 1 in front) and a bit low for my taste. With 2mpaired's ISD it stands on a single stand and from what I can see in the photos pretty tall. And the greebling just looks really nice for this one, but Onecases is still really good. Just down to preference. And if you want a interior you got Raskolnikov's ISD.

    [MOC] ISD Chimaera

    If I were you I'd just get the UCS ISD. Not as good as the MOC's here but good enough for any SW fans (causal or hardcore). If you don't like the UCS one then I'd recommend Onecases midi-scale one. Has like 1400 pieces and is pretty detailed too.
