  1. *This entry has earned 7 XP* It was a good day on Daluuj. One of the few days, where it wasn't raining and the sun was looking through the clouds. Stormtroopers patrolled the streets. The Ortolan Beso had made a very special catch. A working R5 unit! Soon he had a customer. A young man who seems only interested in the durability of the motivator. While Beso made his deal of the week, he saw a small furry creature behind his marketstand. But he was more interested in the credits the young man gave him, than in the non-native being, who somehow found his way to this backwater planet. And while a Rodian and a Zabrak stood in line to get their new chain codes, a man in imperial uniform appeared. As a hologram he stood above their head and spoke: Loyal Citizens of Daluuj: You can rest now.Thanks to the bravery of our troops, chaos and corruption has been driven out of this sector. Ever lasting peace has took its place. And with it comes opportunity and prosperity for all. But the war is not over. Not yet. There is still madness at our door. Many planets are under the influence of the so called the New Republic. A government of no legitimacy. A government of corruption and chaos. Born out of the mind of elite oligarchy and opportunists, who only want to enrich themselves. But be assured, they will not succeed. We will not rest until the leaders of the New Republic are brought to justice and their selfish believes is driven out of this galaxy. As citizens of the Triumvirate and the Galactic Empire it is our duty to bring peace, stability and prosperity to ever corner of a united galaxy. Do your part in securing the future of our galaxy! Loyal Citizens of Daluuj: You can rest now.... by Macropus, auf Flickr Nothing much to say. Only that it isn't totally based on the one scene in the second episode of Bad Batch and it was a great opportunity to write a little speech. I happy about any kind of feedback. Greetings Mac
  2. I dont know why they put in General Veers and not a new variant of Admiral Piett. I mean when I think about the camber, I think about the scene where the Admiral comes in and sees Vader's scarred head (or the meeting with old Palpatine). Where is the holopad? Would be a nice addition. Just a small extension. And we already have Veers (in Battle Armor) and a officer with a General rank.

    [REVIEW] 40516 - Everyone is Awesome

    Or in orange for Conan O'Brien. Nice review. I personally find the set boring, just because the monochrome aspect is not mine. I'm more a fan of printed minifigures.

    Midi X wing and TIE interceptor

    Looks great. The cockpit from the TIE is really nice and round. Maybe the X-Wing is even for a Lego build too streamlined. Especially the WindUscreen Where is the front piece of the X-wing from? I don't recognize it
  5. *Your entry has earned 7 XP* Hello there, General Pax. An unexpectied visit, but a welcome one. If we knew you were coming, we would have... Well, that's the idea of an unannounced inspection. But let's go inside. Even if the planet is under imperial occupation, we don´t know whos watching. I don't trust those aliens. Then let's go. We have much to talk about. We are standing here in the montation hall. The factory is fully automatic, but as you can see, we are still using living workforce. We noticed it. And why is this? A good question. For that you have to thank the New Republic and espacily Senator Organa. After the offical end of the war the Senator run her „A Future for the Galaxy“-Campagne. Thanks to this campagne and every cooperation gets a repayment, if they give refuges work. So in other words, the New Republic is paying for our fighters. And you are not afraid that one of your workers will rat you out? No, Lieutenant. The factory and its workers is under strict control and every single republic official in the system is paid handsomely to keep their distance. I can assure you, noone in this or the next sector dears to touche property of Sienar-Jaemus Fleet Systems and the Labour Union. The Republic is too afraid. They have no authority here. And how many fighters are you producing per rotation? At the moment? Around 1500 TIE/LN fighters. Thats are pretty samll number. Yes it is. But the factory is not running on full capacity. If it would, we can produce 3500 fighters pre rotation. But that would be a number too high, to smuggle the products sensibly without anyone wanting to check the papers. But let's continue the conversation in my office. I still have some fine Alderaanian wine. Gifted by Senator Bail Organa. Why don't we drink a glass, to the empire and to the Organa, who help one way or another to build this facility? Some more pictures and behind the scene: I had the TIE-Fighter lying with me for a long time, but never had the motivation to build the wings. So I decided to repurpose the fighter to use it in a factory-MOC. One MOC from my Always-Want-to-build-list. I had fun building this MOC. But there were also many problems. Especially with the conveyor belt. It's not 100% perfect, because it hangs down. But overall i am very happy how it turned out. As I promised, a MOC with more story. My first try, so I am still figuring out how. Feedback and critique always welcome. Greetings Mac

    [O10 - Gorse - TT] A Factory for the Empire

    Thank you. The size of the TIE seams to be a bigger problem than I thougt. More like The Return of the Imperial Worker

    [O10 - Gorse - TT] A Factory for the Empire

    Thanks. Maybe the Empire needs to save some of their resources. That´s why they building samller TIEs. To get more from less. Thank you. I don't know of any other way to build a small globe. And I think, would it be bigger, it would be heavier. And so it would be difficult to build a conveyor, that holds the weight and looks nice. Thanks. Finally one, who appreciates the droid

    Welcome back, Sir! Also, nice MOC

    The Search for Pyerce [O7 - Krownest - CE]

    A really great dynamic. I mean, most MOC are more of a still life, where everything has its place and no action takes place. But here, only action and moving.

    I really like the terrain. Maybe I have to try it myself.
  12. *Your entry has earned 5 XP* Imperial Communique 639184.88e—CLASSIFIED Code: Endless Sun Report No: O10-029 Ambria [LSM-036] to [LSM-663] and [GA-004] High Command Regarding Project: Eclipse & LUXUM As stated in my last report: We found some remarkable crystals near Lake Natth. The Locals call them LUXUM. Powerful crystals, much stronger than we first thought. The results of first experiments look very promising. It seems they are created by immense pressure, lasting for up to hundred years. In accordance with your orders: we've occupied the affected area. Lake Naath and its surrounding land is now under Imperial Jurisdiction. Imperial Code 94364. The "redistribution" of its residents and the establishment of labor camps are in full swing. Camp 1 and 3 to 5 are set up and ready for use. Camp 2 and 6 should be ready by the next rotation. But I have to tell you, Ambria is far more hostile than we first tought. More and more troopers lose their lives to the dangerous fauna. And there is something else. The workers are talking about a strange feeling they get, when they are near Lake Natth. Like if something is watching them. Some evem refuse to continue working. I ordered immediate action against such behavior. I don't know if and how this reduce the efficient of operation. We have already lost precious time. But I assure you, sir, we will be successful. This operation is far too important to fail. Long live the Triumvirate.

    Motorized AT-TE free instructions

    This just looks incredible. Too good to be true. Do you have a short video of the functions? Would help me to love this walker even more

    [M13 - Devaron - CS] Life: R&R (TT)

    So simple stupid and funny. Love it. But you can see, how good the Triumvirate/Empire takes care of its soldiers.

    [K4 - Entralla - FF] Life: Parade of Ghosts

    Really love this MOC. Great work. Only one thing: The large window on the right could use a person in it. A festive Ugnaught
  16. *Your entry has earned 3 XP* OK, I lied about next MOC has a story. But this isn't really a full MOC. It is more a one-day-speed-MOC. So it doesn't count. (But it of course counts for XP and IP). I think everyone can see, where I got the idea from. The best Star Wars Game since Lego Star Wars: The complete saga: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. A Ship Cutter cuts an old Imperial ship above the planet Kuat, so that its material can be reused for a more peaceful cause. Greetings

    [M13-devaron-TT] An old wreckage

    Cool idea and MOC. Sometimes I really like thinking about how "realistic" Star Wars MOCs are. And this is a MOC, where I think this is somehow realistic. I don´t know why, it just feels right. Maybe because Devaron is a really damp planet.

    [R16 -Tatooine - CS] Find of the Day!

    Nice MOC. Reminds me of the time where every star wars set had those officiel alternate builds. Especially the front tires. Your MOC could be the alternate build for the 2005 Sandcrawler.
  19. *Your entry has earned 12 XP* Friends of droids, clankers and CIS: Please look away! There is it. * PEW PEW * Got it! And there it goes. Excellent shot, Gecko! Let's return to base. Drinks on you. What?! Wait, wait, wait, I didn't agree to it. Not my problem. You shot the droid, you have to pay for it. Those are the rules, we all agreed on. I am not entirely happy, how the MOC turned out. One of those builds, where the idea is better than the finished build. I first tried my luck with half an ARC-170, but I had the same problem as my comrade @Simulterious with his crashed TIE. The only difference he decided to stick with his plans. But I changed fighters: to a good old Vulture Droid. One of the best things to come out Episode I (with its counterpart the Naboo Fighter). I m happy over feedback. (The photo isn't the best, I know. My camera has given up, in the middle of the shot. So, not good) The next MOC(s) will have some more story. Or just a story. I can't really say, that my MOCs are story-driven. So there's that. So don't despair, I have plans. Greetings from the Empire

    I think someone doesn´t like the Empire. Kinooine is a planet I never heard of.

    [M10 - Kuat - TT] A wreckage for the future

    This is the best feedback when one build something after a picture/model. Thanks. Thanks. But it wasn't the first time, that I thought this orange bar ist perfect for Star Wars. To know what I mean, you have to wait a little bit more.
  22. *Your entry has earned 7 XP* Imperial Communique 704421.97f— Code: Reconstruction Report No: U13-229 Daluuj [TK-4173] to Sector Command and High Command Regarding Daluuj Sector 45 I can inform you, Phase 2 can start now. Daluuj is a peaceful planet. No hostility from the inhabitants. The only problem should be the planet´s fauna. The inhabited speak about some giant sea-worms, but we found no thing. Only small furry cat-like animals Alvis Neen commanding Stormtrooper Captain [TK-4173] end of Report No: U13-229 Just a little MOC for testing a new technique for puddles. Greetings

    Thanks guys. I think, I will use the smoke in a future MOC again.

    [H16 - Endor - TT] Wreckage of the Empire

    Holy Moly! What a big and great MOC.Perfect in every way (except the missing trees, but hey, maybe the empire needed some room for troops and material) Just one question: Is Moff his name or title?

    [O10 –Gorse - TT] Wreckage recovery

    Looks really good. But how can you saw it is a speedbuild?! Thats outrageous!! I wish I could build so fast (and so big). But what is the meaning of those new officer uniforms?
