    I just purchased set 75188 as two of the ones I was watching on ebay / bricklink were snatched up. I have a feeling in the next couple weeks / months / the price of that set is going to skyrocket as a result of people purchasing it for the @StarBricks SB00301. As excited as I am for this build, I am also anxiously awaiting his newest build. It looks amazing! I've been a huge fan ever since I discovered this subculture of AFOLs. Italian Translation (via google translate) Ho appena acquistato il set 75188 perché due di quelli che stavo guardando su ebay / bricklink sono stati rubati. Ho la sensazione che nelle prossime due settimane / mesi / il prezzo di quel set salirà alle stelle perché le persone lo acquisteranno per @StarBricks SB00301. Per quanto sia eccitato per questa build, sto anche aspettando con ansia la sua ultima build. Sembra incredibile! Sono stato un grande fan da quando ho scoperto questa sottocultura degli AFOL.

    Amazing build Mirko! Congrats! Placed my order on day 1!
  5. Thanks for the compliments everyone. I am making really great progress on the instructions. I'm also in the process of setting up BrickWars.net. It's been a lot of fun working on them.
  6. Thanks for the compliment!
  7. Thank you Sir! It's been a lot of fun. I've been sourcing pieces all while doing the build. I'm currently sitting around 70% of the pieces. My plan is to finish the instructions. Build it. Make any modifications and then have a few test builds with some friends who are very interested in the build.
  8. Last night, I put some of the finishing touches and details on the POD and the Ion Cannon.
  9. Update: The RTT-Initiative has undergone a few edits to streamline parts. I started working on instructions earlier this week and noticed some things were not quite right. I started creating the logical progression of the build and It just made sense to make some changes to eliminated confusion.I have about 70% of the parts sourced locally and the rest from my own inventory. By the time insource all the parts, the Alpha version of the instructions should be ready.It's all coming together nicely.
  10. Thank you. I thought it would be a great way to capture the spirit of the Resistance because they are constantly utilizing other ships and reverse engineering technology to stay in the fight.
  11. Thank you Veynom! I tried a few different color combos using dark red, but ultimately I really liked how the blue looked.
  12. Thank you so much! I can't wait to start building / putting the instructions together for it.
  13. Some additional renders showing how the panels can be removed. Mirko - Thank you so much! That really means a lot!
  14. BW-2001 RTT-Initiative (Rebel Troop Transport UCS) I was born in 1977, the year Star Wars A New hope was released. I remember watching Return of the Jedi in the movie theater to this day as well as the people who accompanied me to see it; my father and my brother. I was hooked. Anything to do with Star Wars I loved. As a I grew older and started a family, I found myself sharing Star Wars with my own kids which led me down the path of building LEGO space ships. I purchased several books and discovered a subculture dedicated to pop culture LEGO MOCS. I was instantly hooked. The first MOC I ever built was by MIRKO from @StarBricks. I love his work. I've said to him and others, he set the bar really high for when I would one day create my own MOC. Over the past several months, I've been working on a build from Star Wars The Force Awakens. It's somewhat of an iconic scene with the ship in the background - and it didn't get much screen time as it brought Han Solo and Leia back together. LEGO released a version of this ship (set 75140) which didn't do the ship justice in my opinion (other than coming with some really awesome min-figs). I researched cross sections books / visited fandom and star wars wiki sites and consulted original concept artwork for the details of this build while also adding my own creative touch. After 3 failed attempts, I hit my stride and started to become really happy re-creating a piece of movie screen history. Build Details * Total Parts: 4342 Total Lots: 410 28.2" Wide, 15.6" Length, 6.8" Height Weight: 147.877 ounces. (9.3Lbs) Instruction Progress: 10% completed * As this is the alpha version of this build, part and lot counts will change. Pieces have been ordered to do test builds and stability checks. The interior POD and Ion cannon sections are still in progress. Main transport ship hull is 95% complete. Exterior ship build is 90% complete. I welcome any feedback (both positive and critical). Note these are Alpha renders and may have some subtle difference from the final version. If you are interested in instructions, please send me a message brickwarsnet@gmail.com. Once my site brickwars.net goes live, I can provide further information on availability and release of instructions. All top panels are easily removable. I included a great deal of detail and I wanted the compartments to be easily viewable. Additional Interior details. In true rebel fashion, the main transport hull can be excluded entirely and connected to the ion cannon.

    I agree with Mirko. I love putting custom MOCS together. I haven't found one person that goes through the effort that he does when it comes to producing something beyond PDF instructions. What I find disappointing are people's reactions to something they have little to no idea the time it takes to create. I recently started putting a MOC together myself and after starting over 4 or 5 times 3/4 of the way into the build I can tell you first hand it takes a lot of time. The more pieces the more complex it becomes. And for every piece that's a part of the instructions that need to be created. Mirko is a great designer and finding pieces that are accessible is also something he does. There is a great deal of quality assurance that goes into creating a MOC especially after the initial build. There's test building, stability checks, and then their are revisions to the instructions themselves. Many of you just want it released without the LyGod kit just so you can get it now. The problem with that thinking is some people do want the lighting kit. It's also completely up to Mirko. Maybe it's his vision to incorporate it and therefore he's going to incorporate instructions for it giving everyone the option of how to proceed. These are print instructions and cannot just be changed on the fly. Putting these in PDF opens the door for piracy. Getting a part list ahead of time opens the door for inaccuracies as the parts list could change if it's not finalized. Getting the parts list ahead of time also allows for piracy. Knowing what I know about the build process and creating instructions myself; quality work can't be rushed. Mirko certainly doesn't need me to defend him. Those of you that know Mirko know his work speaks for itself. I'd ask you all who are frustrated to be patient. This is very much something he loves to do and doesn't have to share with us.
