  1. I feel like Star Wars sets with decent amounts of interior space very seldom happen, so seeing the Razor Crest have so much is a very nice surprise. It does seem a bit empty at the back though, but that's nothing a bit of modding can't solve. Throw in a weapon rack and a few control panels and you're golden. There's suppose to be a sleeping area too if I recall from the set description correctly.
  2. Pre-ordered, the Razor Crest itself looks great and The Child minifigure looks incredible. £120 isn't the worst price, it looks like there are a few larger and specialised pieces and there's the head mould for The Child as well. 38cm long and over 1000 is decent too.

    [Review] #75271 Luke Skywalker's Landspeeder

    I bought this set the other week and while I think it's decent, I felt it looked a bit too long and flat? I've felt this way with all of the Landspeeders aside from the original 1999 version funnily enough. I did mod it though to make it shorter. I also think this and Obi-Wan's hut should have been a single set, but maybe that's just me

    [MOC] Plus-Size Millennium Falcon?

    I tried mocking up a mandible with physical bricks and it does seem like it will work, so I think I will just have the mandibles disconnected (or at least only partially connected) in the LDD file. And thank you! I've made a tiny bit of progress since then, I'm starting to fill in the outer mandible and I've made a bit of progress on the docking port. Still a very long way to go yet!

    [MOC] Plus-Size Millennium Falcon?

    Oh thank you so much! I will definitely need to give this a try with my Falcon when I get it back, I have my heart set on the idea of bringing UCS buliding techniques across to it since I cannot afford that set.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    What are the chances we get a remake of The Burrow this year? The original 2010 version is one of my favourite HP sets, it would be great to see it remake (potentially at a higher price point with more pieces).

    [MOC] Plus-Size Millennium Falcon?

    Sorry for the late response, I managed to take a screenshot of what I meant. The red ratcheted hinge just won't line up with any studs, I've tried many solutions such as altering where the hinge is attached but nothing has worked so far. I'm not sure if it's because the way I've designed it is physically impossible or it's LDD being finicky. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    [MOC] Plus-Size Millennium Falcon?

    Apologies for the bump, but I'm currently designing my own plus-sized Falcon (as I cannot afford the UCS one) in LDD, and I'm having trouble with the mandibles. I'm using the same Technic method as the UCS model, however I cannot seem to get them to attach in more than once place. The shorter length of the mandibles doesn't seem to be playing nicely with the angle used by the UCS model. Does anyone have any ideas of how to connect them in a study way?
  9. Okay great, thanks everyone! I think I'll opt to get a smallish table to go next to my desk, and then Bricklink the parts for the Efferman stand somewhere down the line. On another note, I've downloaded the LXF for the set and taken a look at the interior. Reading through this thread has already spawned some inspiration, including the sleeping quarters/galley and some floor tiling. I don't feel confident enough with the idea of changing the technical frame, so I'll likely work within the confines of that. Finances permitting, I should be able to finally pick the Falcon up early January!
  10. Regarding the Efferman stand, how deep of a shelf will I need? I'm currently trying to decide if it would want to store it on top of my wardrobe, or put up a shelf specifically for it.
  11. This is exactly the kind of thing I would be interested in, thank you! How does it and the Falcon hold up from displaying it like this, I'm assuming there's no warping or bowing pieces? Also another question, how easy is it to add more interior space? I would love to have the sleeping quarters.
  12. I saw an article the other day claiming that, according to Rebelscum, it's rumoured that the UCS Falcon is scheduled to retire next December. https://www.thebrickfan.com/rumored-list-of-retiring-lego-star-wars-sets-2019/ Is this credible at all? If so, I may need to break the bank and get it soon providing that Christmas doesn't destroy my wallet. I've always wanted a UCS Falcon so I don't think I could bear to miss out on it.

    REVIEW: 75222 Betrayal at Cloud City

    With the talks of imminent discontinuation, I am contemplating picking this up early January if my local LEGO Store still have it in stock, but I'm torn. On the one hand, I'm a sucker for location based sets and I loved the Death Star playset (despite never actually playing with it and just displaying it). On top of that the minifigures are great, as are the Cloud Car and mid-scale Slave 1. I always wanted the original Cloud City set too. However, there's just something about the main build that doesn't quite hit the mark for me. It's difficult to describe, but it does put me in an awkward position. Any chances LEGO will discount it before discontinuation? That might sway me.
  14. Sorry if this is somewhat off-topic, but I'm considering buying this set but I only have a small room (and budget for that matter since I'm a student) in a shared house and have determined the best way to display it would be vertically (facing either sideways or upward). I was wondering if anyone has figured out a relatively simple way to pull this off? And is it simple enough to mod the removable panels so they aren't simply resting in place?

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    The Republic Fighter Tank is the first LEGO set in a while that has made me want to rush out and buy it on release. Everything about it seems pretty much spot on to me. Design-wise it looks great, includes four minifigures (two of which are exclusive) and has a surprising price-per-part ratio for the (excellent) price. I love Republic and Imperial ground vehicles, and I was kicking myself for not picking up the original version so I'm happy they are remaking it, even if it is smaller (it seems closer to scale anyway).
