    [MOC] UCS Tantive IV - CR-90 Corvette

    Thanks. Indeed the history of the Tantive IV is interesting. i spend part of this morning going down the rabbit hole reading fan site and model building forums.

    [MOC] UCS Tantive IV - CR-90 Corvette

    I had a 10019 years ago. Built, displayed, and loved. Then sold it off during my "Lego purge". Then managed to get a sealed one last year, but after doing more research on the Tantive IV, I decided to sell it off as the dimensions bothered me so much. (Plus, I do have the 10198 version.) I could be going out on a limb here, but it appears the UCS 10019 is actually based on a CR70, not a CR90>?! (Photo: CR90 top, CR70 bottom)

    Incredible work! The inaccuracies in 10019 bothered me so much that I sold it!

    Star Wars Rebels UCS Ghost - Minifig Scale

    Incredible work. I'm a huge fan of the Ghost. Any idea how much it would cost to BL the parts? (not that I'm going to do it, just curious)

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    Looks like a great set, and perhaps a slightly new direction for the modular line. I wonder which designer will be doing next year's building?

    cheapest way to get started on hoth

    Why not just get any colour baseplate and cover with white plates and bricks? It would give the display some snow texture. Add in some grey and brown tiles for landscape effect.
  7. As someone who now only collects licensed Technic sets, 2018 looks to be a huge year with the Mack truck, Volvo, and possibly a super-car. I look forward to more information coming our way.
  8. My store is also informing customers of a 10% restocking fee for the Falcon. Seems a little heavy handed...
  9. Side note: what's the best way to remove the handle and wheel from the outer box without making a mess?
  10. I was out of town for the last week and missed out on the launch. Thankfully my wife made it down to our local store yesterday (second in line) for the restock and brought one home for me!
  11. I chatted with some of the staff at my local Lego Store. They indicated that additional shipments are inbound and will be trickling in over the coming weeks...and anticipate some stock for 01 Oct. However, given what happened the other day I wonder if the online back-orders will now take precedent over scheduled stock shipments to the stores?
  12. Still says 01 Oct for me as well, but the 14 Sep is "early access" that I'm sure will probably show up on 13/14 Sep. Not sure how phones are sold in Australia, but in Canada most people "finance" the cost of their phone over the term of their 2-3 year contract with their mobile phone provider.
  13. Hmm, I'm really torn on buying this day-1. There's a Lego store 15min away from my place and I can take the day off work to get in line early. The issue is that I plan to build this set over the holiday break period. So really, it will just sit unopened until then. I'd like to take advantage of the double-VIP offer in October (or the to be expected November and December offerings) but I do risk this set being "sold out" until 2018...
