    Star Wars

    I also enjoyed the Ryloth arc, as well as the Separatist episode before it. It's interesting to see how different planets deal with the oppression of the Empire and it's good to see the Bad Batch doing what they do best, going on missions without being bogged down by Omega getting herself in trouble for the hundredth time. I don't really have anything against Omega, but I was really getting tired of those "chasing after Omega" episodes. The Separatist episode could have delved into the Batch's ideology being challenged a bit more and was a bit action heavy, but it was good action, so I didn't mind it. The first Ryloth episode was indeed hardly related to the Bad Batch and perhaps could have been cut, but I like Hera (she's the best female character in the galaxy since Leia IMHO), so I didn't mind seeing some of her backstory. What I don't understand is, if Omega payed off their debt to Syd, why are they still going on missions for her? While this show could work as an anthology, I can understand that they wanted to have a main cast of characters to connect these stories together. It's good to have a continuing story arc to keep viewers coming back as the stuff with Crosshair and the Kaminoans is the most interesting part of the show as @The Stud said. It's just too bad that all the main characters are either one-dimensional TMNT knockoffs or an inexperienced child with a bounty on her head. Lets hope they continue to have Omega be useful rather than a hindrance and get back to the actual Bad Batch story.

    Best Play Features?

    The Adventurers sets were full of great booby traps, trap doors, and swiveling walls, but one of the best has to be the play feature of Oasis Ambush where a simple mechanism opens the tomb with the pull of a lever in front of it which is chained to the back of the statue. Also, there is a clever feature in the Temple of Anubis which makes a diamond disappear by having a magnet under it and having it sit on a pedestal in front of a swiveling wall that also has a magnet on the backside, so when you turn the wall one full turn, the treasure gets snatched up by the magnet and disappears behind the wall. And I was quite fond of the explosion feature in Sheriff’s Lock-Up where when you inserted a dynamite tile in a wall, it would release a spring and send the wall flying. It was quite effective, but might be tricky to pull off with the modern dynamite mold.
  4. Well done everybody! Thanks for all the votes and congrats to jansued and jp-30! Well deserved, although all entries were great. And thanks to Josh for organizing this fun contest. I guess I’ll take the Vader (which I was most interested in anyway). I’ll message you shortly. July the 4th be with you!
  5. So, any update on the results?

  8. Thank you! Haha, thanks! I'm glad I finally found a use for all those Harry Potter hair pieces. I hope I can count on your vote.
  9. At last, here is my entry. Hopefully it still counts.
  10. My entry is a recreation of the concept art for the final scene of season 1 of The Mandalorian where Moff Gideon emerges from his crashed TIE Fighter with the Darksaber. While the final scene ended up looking very similar, there are still some key differences. For starters, the setting is during daylight, not sunset, and the TIE Fighter appears to be heavier damaged Also, the hole that Gideon cut into the hull with the Darksaber is missing and the Jawas are still in the shot as he stands atop his ship. This is likely because in the concept art the fighter seems to have crashed right side up instead of upside down, meaning that the hatch on top isn't obstructed, giving Gideon no reason to cut his way out of the cockpit and scare the Jawas off. What I really like about this concept art is how Gideon has a much more dynamic pose with his cape and the smoke behind him flowing in the wind. Reference:
  11. I won't have much time to finish my entry tomorrow, so I can definitely use the extension! Nice figs @Artizan!
  12. I'm still working on mine, but should be able to get it finished by the 4th.
  13. Hi everyone. I thought I'd share my entries for the recent "Let's Get Tropical" contest in the Lego Speeder Bikes group on Flickr. There were 3 categories and the idea was to have them be tropical themed (although it wasn't a requirement). Here are my entries for each category: Island Racing While most of the time the tropical planet Paradisa is an idyllic vacation spot where beings from across the galaxy come to relax and unwind, once a year the resort hosts an exciting high-speed speeder bike race around its beautiful islands. The Seaside Speederbike is a fast and elegant ride that is perfectly designed for the Paradisa racetrack. It is built to match the bright, pastel-colored aesthetics that Paradisa is known for and uses design elements from vehicles that you typically see around the islands such as horse carriages and surfboards. With three powerful engines and small adjustable wings on each side for quick turns, victory is assured for the rider of this speeder bike! When I think "tropical islands", one of the first things that come to mind is Paradisa, so I wanted to have my speeder bike to be themed after this childhood favorite theme. I tried to use as many original Paradisa parts as possible. Musically Inspired When I think of the tropics and music, what comes to mind is the King of Rock, Elvis Presley, and how he liked to spend a lot of his time in Hawaii. So, for my entry for the music category in the Lego Speeder Bikes contest "Let's Get Tropical" I built a speederbike inspired by Rock'n'Roll music. Part jukebox, part 1950's retro vehicle, it's built to rock'n'race across the tropical islands! It even has an electric guitar holder in the back. Bounty Hunter Zarko Hydraxon used to be a proud member of the devious Aquasharks. However, his methods of acquiring Hydrolator crystals were too ruthless even for his fellow Aquasharks, so they banished him from their group. Since Aquasharks aren't very popular in the Aquazone, none of the other factions wanted to take him in, so Zarko decided to leave the Aquazone to forge his own path by becoming a bounty hunter. Now traversing the tropical oceans and calling himself Lone Shark, he will work for anyone who is willing to pay in Hydrolator crystals. He built himself a fearsome custom speeder bike to hunt down his bounty. Like the Aquashark subs, it is shaped like a big black shark to strike terror into the hearts of his prey and is equipped with harpoon launchers, robot arms, and a fishing net to capture his bounty. It is amphibious, so it can either hover over the water or dive underwater. It also has a sonar compass on the dashboard for tracking down bounties. All this along with his trusty harpoon gun and knives make him one of the most dangerous bounty hunters around! Aquazone was another childhood favorite theme, and it's water-related, so I chose to theme my bounty hunter after one of the antagonistic factions from that theme. What do you think? Which one do you like best?

    Star Wars

    I thought it was alright, just like the CW episodes that introduced the Bad Batch. All the main characters are still one-dimensional copies of the TMNT, except maybe Hunter. Yeah, the prison break scene was kinda dumb, but the action was fun enough. I'll stick with it to see where they go with it. I'd say it's at about the same level as CW, definitely not as bad as Resistance. Rebels is still the best one out of these 3 shows.
  15. Neat idea for a contest! For more inspiration, you could also watch the end credits of each Mandalorian episode or look at the episode guides for The Clone Wars and Rebels on StarWars.com where they have concept art for each episode.
