    [SPC] Cat C - Kahuka-1

    Hah! This is great fun.

    [MOC] Frost Driller

    Particularly like the cockpit on this!
  3. The High Republic has sort of had a set already though, in the form of that 4+ one from last year. (I know it's technically YJA but still, it's concurrent with the HR!)
  4. With all the alt builds I've seen from the T6, this surely has to be one of the most versatile sets out there! Your falcon is very cute.

    [MOC] MINIs from Ahsoka - 7 NEW Models

    Very nice! I think the T-6 is the pick of the bunch for me. Your comments on the cruiser got me thinking though; how do you decide on the rough size of the models? Do you have a maximum envelope you try to fit them in, or is it just what 'feels' right?

    Return of the Jedi in LEGO

    That shot of the A-wing flying into the bridge is superb! One of my favourites you've done.

    [MOC] Midi-Scale Y-Wing

    Wow! I almost can't believe how small it is, there's so much detail here!

    Updating Your Minifigs

    Ooh I like your idea for the arms! Might make use of that for a minifig hardsuit.

    2024 Space sets

    I dunno, I like the fact that you can get a commander/leader figure in one of the cheapest sets. Perhaps the construction team captain could've been in the rover, though.
  10. The Invisible Hand is my favourite of these sets. Will definitely try and pick that one up. Maybe the Tantive IV as well, if only because I like midi-scale capital ships (Radiant VII next please!); otherwise I can take it or leave it. Ditto for the Falcon. I'm pleasantly surprised how good R2 looks, but since I'm not bothered about him or Malak that's a pass for me. Fives might be a BL buy depending on the price.
  11. I don't know if the geometry between clips and hands is too different for it to count, but arguably any minifig holding a tile. Off the top of my head I know the Saturn V rocket had the flag tile between two studs, which is similarly legal for tiles and not plates. I'm sure it has been seen before though - I have a feeling that some Architecture sets use the clip and tile connection but couldn't say for sure.
  12. Yep. It doesn't help that TLG doesn't seem to be getting the same advanced access to these shows that it used to, which means it can't ride the initial hype wave when these shows do come out, and by the time they can figure out what would make for a good set with decent demand behind it (e.g. the Haulcraft), people's interest has moved onto the next show. Them seems to be the breaks, I guess.
  13. From what I've seen (warning! Anecdotal evidence approaching), TBB seems to be most popular with precisely that group of people - those who grew up with the Clone Wars. I would surmise that for those who haven't seen at least some of that show, including the last season, the Bad Batch doesn't hold much appeal. We can kinda see that with all the returning characters. TLG will also have some sales data on how these sets sell as well; granted, the Justifier is not a great set per se, but by all accounts the shuttle wasn't exactly flying off shelves either. Still, I do agree there would've been room for more sets. I can't help thinking a V-wing with a handful of figs would've fit perfectly in the slot taken up by Yoda's Starfighter last year, for instance.

    LEGO Sci-Fi Ongoing - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Off the back of this discussion I looked up what the exact definition of sci-fi is, and there's a whole Wikipedia page dedicated to its various definitions... As John Campbell put it, "science fiction is what I say it is" So it seems very subjective. The basic tenet seems to be fictional elements, based wholly or partially on existing science, that are essential or important to the plot of a given story. I guess that's why, to me, the original Arctic theme doesn't 'feel' like sci-fi. The fictional element - the neon spiders encased in ice or meteors - could be completely forgotten about (ahem), and the sets would still work, I think. I can now see how it fits under the sci-fi banner, though. Perhaps it comes down to personal preference too - I prefer a bit more 'fi' in my sci-fi!

    [WIP] BR 60 Streamlined 2-4-2 Tank Loco

    Wow, I didn't know they made streamlined tank engines as well! Saves the need to build any pesky running gear very nice model.
