    [REVIEW] 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina

    Thank you so much!
  2. Congratulations to all the winners! There were some truly great builds this year.

    [MOC] Star Wars THE MANDALORIAN –Siege on Nevarro

    Great work! So many great little details here, such as the blaster holes in the cantina walls. I also like how you had IG-11 carry The Child - simple but effective!

    [REVIEW] 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina

    Great review! This looks like an amazing set, but I wish it was cheaper - $350 for 3100 pieces is a bit much. I would definitely buy it at $300-$325, though. I'll probably save up and wait for a discount to get it... I also have a question regarding the dimensions of this set. Namely, what are its dimensions when the cantina is "closed up"? All the measurements I've seen so far (height, width, depth, etc.) were for its "opened up" form.

    [MOC] Witch's Castle

    Great work! I especially like the "90 degree angle" side tower you gave it. The speed build video was also informative!

    Kumi'dia residence

    Awesome work! Love how you did the archways and the cornices. I also like how you used those ingots as tiles - not enough people do that!

    Mophet armory - Al-Asliha

    Great work! So many nice details here (such as knight shields on either side of the door). I also like how you did the trees!

    [MOC] Jörmungandr, the Sea Serpent

    This is a great MOC! I particularly like how you achieved the curvature of the serpent.

    [Custom CMF] Ladies of Historica

    @Aurore @Grover You're not alone as far as "old minifigure torso issues" are concerned. I've lost count of how many older torsos/arms (specifically those which are dark red, dark brown, or reddish brown) have snapped on me as I was trying to switch out the arms. I've also had old torsos that don't snap but lose a lot of friction in the arm sockets if you try switching arms out. Thankfully, LEGO seems to have mostly corrected both of these issues in recent years.

    [Custom CMF] Ladies of Historica

    This is a wonderful lineup you have here! So much creativity on display, from the Roadhog hook for the Nocturnus mermaid, the Wonder Woman torso on the swashbuckler, and the Storm torso on the Fire Dancer, among many others! I'm also happy to see the centaur "lower bodies" being used. With so many great figures, it's hard to pick favorites. If I had to pick a few, though, it would have to be the Illusionist (I love that color combo), Forest Kid, the Efrit, the Messenger, the Necromancer, and Ylspeth. Keep up the great work!

    [MOC] Dwarven Barber Shop

    What a cool idea for a build! So much to praise about this MOC - the roofing, the mirror, the portraits inside the barbershop - fantastic work as always!

    Defend the Food!

    A great build with an interesting story! You nailed the angles for the roofing. My favorite detail might be the silver hoops you use for the door handles!

    Guilds of Historica New Member Guide

    That might be what happened to one of my photos of Ayra. The photo's title and description made no mention of GOH, but I did include it in the tags. The post in question: Ambush by socalbricks, on Flickr

    Avalonian Market Stall

    Welcome to Avalonia! There are some truly gorgeous techniques on display here! I especially love the use of the treasure chest lids and the broom! The whole build is wonderfully detailed without feeling cluttered! Great work!

    The Lost Fleet Part 1: The Investigation

    Love the mystery you set up here! Can't wait to see more! The MOC itself is also great; I especially love how you did the ship's hull!
