  1. Hello everyone! This week I was lucky enough to find the new 75226 Inferno Squad Battle Pack early at my local hypermarket. This set is basically based on the campaign of the latest Battlefront 2 game. I really like all the Battlefront games and I want the main characters since the new one released. There could be find some really cool custom minifigures on the internet, but I always prefer the official ones more even if the custom ones could be much more detailed. So I was very excited, when the first rumours said they will come in a battle pack. Details Name: 75226 Inferno Squad Battle Pack Theme: Star Wars/Battlefront Year: 2019 (1H) Pieces: 118 Minifigures: 4 Price: USD 14.99 Source and more info: Brickset Box The size of the box is the common battle pack box size, which most of the bp's use. This set has the new 2019 box art, which features Darth Vader on the right corner and the Star Wars logo in black next to the LEGO logo. These two are in good contrast with the white background. The white background is nicely detailed by imitating a lot of actual pieces in white and this goes around each side of the box. The front shows all the minifigures and the build of this set in the middle of an action scene. According the background it takes place on the forest moon of Endor and this location was featured in the game too. The back shows the speeder landed with the figures in different poses and the vehicle's stud shooter in action. On the sides continuous the nice white background and besides the usual texts have the logo of the LEGO Life App and a minifig for size reference. Build As usual to the battle packs the box contains two unnumbered bags and a small instructions. The instructions book is smaller than the previous battle packs had. This new one is the same size that the Microfighters have and because of that, they don't have to folding it. The new instructions in 2019 have QR codes printed on the front and you could scan these with the LEGO Life App to use digital instructions. At the back of the book ther are an ad for the Life App and how to use the QR code, there are pics of other new sets and the minifigs of those sets, plus there is the partslist to. The set a lot of good different type and colored pieces, but nothing too special. The completed build of the set is a unique looking speeder. Just like some other small battle pack vehicles, neither this one based on an actual thing from the Star Wars universe, but it could fit into any collection. The designers made a good work to capture the feeling of imperial ships by the shapes and make an interesting looking speeder. The colors they've used reminds me the Corvus, which is the main ship of the squad plus they added a couple of red parts, which refers to the symbols of the team. The main part of the bps are of course the minifigures, so if you only need them, there are a lot of useful pieces for MOC building in this set. It has a lot of different kind of pieces, such as wedge plates and technic pieces. The model is very compact and uses several building techniques to get differently oriented parts. The wings are nicely angled with a couple of technic parts and the are quite sturdy. The main play features are the stud shooters on the side of the two wings. Besides them it has 4 imitated blasters too. The vehicle could fit only one of the figs, but the seat has only two studs and it makes very easy to remove the pilot.(sometimes too easy...) The only "weak" part is the engine at the back, what is heald just two technic pins. Minifigures As I've said before, in most cases you'll buy this kind of set mostly for the minifigures. Here they are the members of the Inferno Squad, which is an imperial special forces unit. In the video game it contains three person, Commander Iden Versio, Gideon Hask and Del Meeko. The story has a prequel as a book and there the squad had a fourth member, Syen Marana. The main character, Iden, got a new accurate headprintig and a recolored hairpiece, but she doesn't has a helmet. All the other figs have helmet instead of hairpieces. Since the introduction of the stud shooters, the figures in the bps usually comes with them instead the nicer, smaller blaster pieces. This is also the case here, but they tried to make some differences of the weapons by adding a couple of pieces to them. It's a good move, but still doesn't feel the best option. Iden has unique torso printing, the others have new printing too, but they all have the same design. In the perfect case this one will be Hask's and Del would get another different print. Del has more ammo packs and pockets on his armor, because of that the minifig got the Batman belt piece in black. This is a nice addition, it makes this one even cooler and fortunately in the set is a spare one of that piece, which is really useful in this color. The printed leg pieces looks great and all of them has the same. In this set only Iden has a new and double-sided head, but fortunately all the figures have different faces. I think the faces for Iden, Del and Gideon fits perfectly, but unfortunately the fourth one is just the generic male trooper head. Summary This battle pack is on of the better ones with a good selection of well made minifigures and a nice small speeder with a lot of useful pieces. It's a relatively cheap way to get main characters or just beautiful figure parts. If you like Battlefront 2 this is the perfect set for you, if not, even than this could be very special addition for anyones Imperial collection. because the new trend of putting named characters in battle packs, they lost the army building value, but I think in this case the minifigures could serve a nice base for your custom imperial members. In a perfect word all of figures would come with hairpieces and helmets too, but I think I'll give the generic troopers helmet to Iden and use the rest of that fig for customization. I recommend this set to any Star Wars collector, and even if you only want the figures. Play: 7/10 (The stud shooters gives the set the most playfeature, but the speeder is very swooshable too) Design/Build: 8/10 (Nothing too special in design wise, but the whole build feels sturdy and complete) Minifigures: 9/10 (They are the star of the set, would've been perfect with four helmets, hairpieces and normal blasters) Price/Value: 8/10 (If you really want these figures, it deffinetly worth the price, but for discounted price you couldn't miss it) Overall: 8/10 (Great set for both collections and playing) My whole album of the set: Bricksafe A bonus picture with additional hairpieces, blasters and custom Iden's droid:
  2. On Monday I bought the 75213 Advent Calendar with 40% off: And on Friday these:
  3. I really like this wave. The Dodge srt and the F40 is definite buy for me and the Camaro too, but I'll modify it to a streetcar. The McLaren looks cool too, but not my favourite, either the Mini set. Nice to see that, the Charger is based off on that car, the only difference is that the Lego model has a "Hemi" logo on the back, in the red stripe. Probably there will be a flat hood piece for the Charger to swap with the super charger. The printed sided plates are awesome, and it looks like the Camaro has one too.(The Chevrolet sign on the back) The driver of the Challenger has a beautiful black suit with a white Demon logo and some stripes. Btw, is the Challenger the first SC car with actual side mirrors?
  4. I'm a bit disappointed of the helmets in the Praetorian Guard BP. That is one thing that we don't get 3 variants, but if you buy 2 BP and the Throne room set to have all the 8 guards. Because there are only 2 helmet variants, in that case you will have 4 of both. In the movie 6 have very similar looking ones(4 have the same) so the original one could work for them, so I think that would be better if the bp has 1 new and 2 old helmets. The weapons needs some work, for the blade Electro-bisento would be better the curved blade from the new ninjago weapon pack. The build is nice whit all of the accesiores, but if I would have multiples, I'll build attachments from them for both sides of the throne room. Than maybe all of the guards could stand there. Btw the A-wing is cute.

    AT-hauler 75219 mod

    I'm currently working in it in LDD. I lowerd the floor of the cocpkpit and added a few more seats, in a layout such as in the set 75094 Imperial Shuttle Tydirium. So it could fit 4 minifigs. I changed the mechanism in the arms too. I've tooked out the the technic bars and built in a string and winch in each arm. But I'm not yet figured out, how could I make the best liftarms, tha could hold an At-St and be able to fold up. I'm countinuing to work on it, and once I get the set I'll make a post with instructions.

    [BH - Iakaru] End up in the mud

    Thank You! I appreciate it and I am glad you like it. Because I'm not able to build bigger layouts, my build are shaped by lot of small details. When I imagine the story, that I made, gives a lot of ideas for the little background details and for the look of the scenes. I'm very glad for the inspirations SoNE gives me and I can't wait for Factions.
  7. My next job took me to Mimban. Here are five old imperial mining towns, where illegal mining is still active. The target is an Iakaru, who works as a miner here. Most of the miners are addicted intoxicants, so I guess I know where to find him. I'll disguise myself as a miner and than waiting for him in the pub. In this case, the best way to make this done, is using poison. So here he is. Human - Do not touch me, dirty monkey. Twi'lek - Hesuag boba ba bouba. I'ts the perfect time to swap the cups. It's just a matter of time, that the poison kills him.

    [BH - Talz] Summertime

    Cool looking interior, but what I really like is the exterior. Ship is nice too.
  9. After I spent some time relaxing here, on Tatooine, it's time to work. I've found a decent job last week and I collected some information about it: The target is a Rodian named Eaklo Khzecez. He was a racing pilot, he did mostly podracing, but also did speeder bikes races too. He was sponsored by the Hutts, it meant that he had to do what he was told. Towards the end of his career he had to lose more and more times and he was satisfied with this. On his last race, instead of losing he won it. As later it turned out, he betted himself. He grabbed the money and disappeared with it. Since then he's probably traveling around the planet on his speeder, but no one has able to find him already. Until now... Eaklo Khzecez - Haku? (What?) Eaklo Khzecez - Ting cooing koo soo ah. (I've got the credits.) Bohr Gotta - Mala tram pee chock makacheesa. (You should have paid him when you had the chance.) Eaklo Khzecez- Ah'chu apenkee? (Who are you?) Bohr Gotta - Mee jewz ku! (Goodbye!)

    The Bounty Hunter Missions

    Does this count to the 2 BH mission per episode limit?

    [BH - Gungan] Same route every day

    Thank You! I've been planning for a long time to build a Coruscant street (years ago I tried something), so I thought it could be the best for my first BH mission. I had a lot of cool ideas for the details before and during the building a lot other ideas came along. I'm proud of the end result and I'm glad you like it.
  12. My name is Bohr Gotta, my job is travelling through the galaxy taking risky jobs for good price. This could be a smuggling work or hunting down the targets for who they are paying for. Some call us Bounty Hunters, but it's not only about the rewards, it's about the mission. You should study your target and need a lot of information is needed about the situation. I'm currently on Coruscant. I got some details about a commission in this city. The target is a Gungan named Uneew Sqaurs. Many of the Gungans remained from the republic's time here as the puppet of the Empire. These naive creatures serve the imperial bureaucracy and the members of the Naboo Resistance thought, they are traitors. Maybe one of them gave the order. The Empire is forgiving enough about our work and we have a good relationship. Unfortunately this planet is an exception, as it's a capital place, the Imperials have more attention. So for completing the mission, I need to study Uneew's life and find the best solution. I've been following him for weeks, then I find out he goes home the same route every day. There is an alley way, which is fairly isolated and dark. I broke into the house there, which fortunately seems deserted, so it will be the perfect place to do it. I'll be waiting for him here tomorrow... This job is done. I'm tired of this place's overcrowding, so now I want travel to a warmer and less populated planet...
  13. Since I saw the official pics for the set, i decided that, I must mod the shoulder area. I know there are a lot of cool mods and rebuilds of the set, but I like keep the sets in original form as possible. The overall design of the Hulkbuster was good looking and sturdy, but the gaps at the shoulder bothered me much. Those gaps are there to give space for 360 degree movement of the arms. After the instructions of the set become available, I build it in LDD and then I started to change the build.Mostly I just took out some parts, but it has greatly improved the look. Guide to the Modification: Required Patrs: For this simple mod you only need this 3 parts. For the black arms you could use the outriders arms, because the don't need 6 arms, I think. 1. The mod is begins with disassembly. You need to take off the upper part of the body and the right arm. 2. To get the arms closer to the body you need to leave out the black gears and to change the axle. Than you could take back this arm and take out the another arm. The left arm is on a shorter axle, so you just need to take out the gear. 3. Next comes the upper part. You need to take out curved pieces from the top and the layer of black plates to make it 1 plate high lower. Then you should swap the to black L plate with the gray 1x4, for sturdier connection. 4. Because the height reduction the minifig should stand lower to let the dome close, so you need to take out the 1x2 plate from under the standing piece. 5.Last thing, you could take the 2x2 transparent blue cylinder out to reduce the size of the wheel, which operates the arm. The bashing-arm function is still working after the mod, but it's a bit limited in motion by the shoulder armor. You should be careful with it because you could accidentally knock off those parts, if you raise the arm to high. Fixing the arm with the wheel on the back is workig still too and then you coud posing the arms. After this mod here is our extra parts left: Comparison: I hope you like this small modification.
