    [MOC] The Uterceptor - UCS U-Wing / Tie Interceptor ugly

    Thanks everyone I have a thing for uglies since I was a kid Thanks, I soent way too much time on these pictures. Well it is UCS sized. It should have roughly the sale size as @StarBricks U-Wing.
  2. The Uterceptor, Zar Mioln's personnal starfighter, was built from a damaged U-Wing salvagedby the Dawn's Raiders Guild from a recent space battle opposing the Rebellion and the Empire. After being brought into the Harvester's main hangar, the U-Wing damages were assessed. The ship lost its starboard engines, wing and door, but was otherwise in good condition. Wingss and twin ion engines from Tie Interceptors were used to repair the U-Wing. The missing door was replaced by armor plates and a missile launcher pod was added. The Uterceptor is used as a command and support ship, adding firepower to salvage parties when needed. Due to its shape, it can't land anywere but on a specific dock inside the Harvester's hangar. The Uterceptor by BobDeQuatre, on Flickr The Uterceptor by BobDeQuatre, on Flickr The Uterceptor by BobDeQuatre, on Flickr Finally done... It all started as a micro build last year, and I decided to start working on it during the last lockdown. I bought books to have access to schematics of both U-Wing and Tie Interceptor and made lots of measurements to get all the shapes and angles right. Of course it's not perfect as I had to make some choices. Sometimes getting one part right was messing up another part... I also faced difficuties adding details on the inside, as the measurements of the interior didn't quite matched the space available. I also tried not to look at other UCS sized U-Wing. I just compared solutions used on a few areas. I decided not to use the UCS X-Wing canopy as its shape isn't really great for the U-Wing, and switched for a "no glass" solution that I'm not completely happy with. I also tried Light My Bricks stuff for the first time, and it was a really great experience. I'm impressed by the small size of the leds and wires. Anyway, I hope you'll like it. It was a really great experience building this "Ugly" The Uterceptor by BobDeQuatre, on Flickr The Uterceptor by BobDeQuatre, on Flickr The Uterceptor by BobDeQuatre, on Flickr The Uterceptor by BobDeQuatre, on Flickr The Uterceptor by BobDeQuatre, on Flickr The Uterceptor by BobDeQuatre, on Flickr The Uterceptor by BobDeQuatre, on Flickr The Uterceptor by BobDeQuatre, on Flickr Scaling up... by BobDeQuatre, on Flickr

    [MOC] Vigilance - Venator class-star destroyer (WIP)

    Very nice rendition of the Venator! I really like that the hangar is openable and that it holds some tiny vehicles :)

    [MOC][Instructions] UCS A/SF-01 B-Wing

    According to Rebrickable, 10227 has only 31% of the parts needed for my MOC. Using the cockpit part of the 10227 was a strong no from the start. I don't like that part, it has more drawbacks than benefits (mainly the canopy printing).

    [MOC][Instructions] UCS A/SF-01 B-Wing

    Thanks. The exact same size, as it was initialy based on the 10227.
  6. It's finally done! Last year I started to rebuild the UCS B-Wing I built years ago, trying to fix design flaws and inaccuracies, and it was a blast! I love the B-Wing, and I wanted to do it justice by trying to be as close as possible to the ILM model. I also redesigned the stand to give it a more dynamic stance, as the old one was vertical. And I also designed a small stand for a "bust" version of the B-Wing, with only the cockpit and engines blocks. I hope you'll like it, and if you're interested, the instructions are available on Rebrickable:

    [MOC] The Ancient Gate of Qarava

    I really like this build, very inspiring and inspired. Glad you could be in touch with the original creator! The only part that I don't like is the blue line at the top of the "water fall".

    [REVIEW] 41682 - Heartlake City School

    Set information Set Name: Heartlake City School Set Number: 41682 Number of Pieces: 605 Theme: Friends Year Release: 06/2021 Prices: £59.99 / $59.99 / €64.99 (Euro prices may vary) #41682 on Brickset #41682 on Rebrickable Box and content The box contains 7 numbered bags, an instructions booklet and a loose stickers sheet. For set of this size, and a stickers sheet of this size (20 stickers!), I'd prefered it to come in a thicker plastic bag. The box front shows the facade of the buildings, while the back features the inside and all the activities that can be done. The build The build is pretty straightforward, with no difficulties. With each bag, you build each individual room, starting from the bottom left to the top right : the canteen, the school hall, the drama and music classroom, the art classroom, the bathroom (the mandatory toilets are included) and the lab. Bag one contais the 3 minidolls, the bike, the basketball panel and the canteen table that can be attached next to the canteen or used as an outside table. The completed build looks really good from both sides. The facade is especially very nice, with the colonnades, the dark orange brick bricks and multitude of windows. There is a lot to do in this school, and each room is greatly detailed (with the use of lots of stickers). My favorite classroom is the drama and music one, with all its accessories and its two glow in the dark shields! The sandwiches in the canteen are also cleverly done. There is no roof over the second floor rooms, so you can easily play with the minidolls. But the second floor don't detach, so the first floor rooms are maybe less playable.. Minidolls The set comes with 3 minidolls: - Olivia - Marisa - who makes her debuts as a Friends minidoll - Julian - Only appeared in set 41448: Heartlake City Movie Theatre There are sadly no animals on the school grounds. Conclusion Design: 7/10 - A simple build but very nice looking, especially the facade Parts: 6/10 - The part selection is average, nothing too fancy in this set, excepts if you really love windows. Playability: 8/10 - With 6 different rooms and the beginning, lots of accessories, of an exterior playground, the set offers a great playability. Minidolls: 6/10 - The 3 minidolls are nice, but one more for a set of this size would have been better. And no animals.. Price: 4/10 - With a high ppp of 0,107€ and 3 minidolls, this set is overpriced. Overall: 31/50 (62%) - A nice looking set that would make a great addition to any Friends display, but the price is too high for what the set offers.

    [REVIEW] 40516 - Everyone is Awesome

    Yes they are
  12. Disclaimer: I'll (try to) stay purely factual about this set, despite my personnal opinion. I know what the comments will be, I've already read them everywhere, and I don't want to be part of any witch hunt... because I love witches... Set information Set Name: Everyone is Awesome Set Number: 40516 Number of Pieces: 346 Theme: Miscellaneous Year Release: 06/2021 Prices: £30.99 / $34.99 / €34.99 (Euro prices may vary) #40516 on Brickset #40516 on Rebrickable Box and content The medium sized box shows the set on a black background with a white Lego bricks outline on the bottom. The black makes the box quite classy, but there are also splashes of colors from the set itself. The back of the box has different angled views of the set. The box contains unumbered bags and the instructions booklet. The booklet features a text from Matthew Ashton, Vice President of Design at Lego. I'll let you read the text and make your own opinion about it. The build The build is really simple, and consists of layers of plates and tiles, and then layers of bricks. And then you add the 11 monochrome minifgs. The top of the build features 1x3 arches in all the 11 colors. The hairs parts are mostly new, and so are some of the 1x2 plates and bricks. The different body parts of the minifigs are also either rare or completely new, and at least we've never seens such a combination of monochrome minifigs before in any official set. The minifigs All the 11 minifigs are identical, with absolutely no printings even on then part. The only difference between them being their hair parts (and obviously their colors). (Yep, a white monochrome minifig on a white background is hard to photograph...) Conclusion Design: 7/10 - The build is simple, but really convey the message behind the set. Parts: 7/10 - The part selection may seem bad, but some parts are new recolors. Minifigs: 11/10 - The 11 monochrome minifgs looks great with their uniques hairs. Price: 7/10 - With a ppp of 0,10€ and 11 monochrome minifigs, the price of the set is... I don't want to put a price on such a set. Overall: 32/40 (80%) - A nice set that as a lot of meaning to some, and less to other. A great opportunity to get monochromes minifigs if that's what you're interested in.

    [REVIEW] 41687 - Magical Funfair Stalls

    Set information Set Name: Magical Funfair Stalls Set Number: 41687 Number of Pieces: 361 Theme: Friends Year Release: 06/2021 Prices: £24.99 / $29.99 / €29.99 (Euro prices may vary) #41687 on Brickset #41687 on Rebrickable Box and content The box's front feature the funfair subtheme artwork. The set is shown, and if you look closely, you can see that there is a magic trick included. The back of the box shows each individual build a bit better, and also reveals the trick behind the magic trick... The box contains 4 numbered bags, two instructions booklet and a sticker sheet. The first instruction booklet will guide you through the build of the ticket booth, the makeup trolley and the turnstile, while the second booklet will help you build ice-cream stall and the levitation stand. The stickers sheet is iridescent. The build The builds are simple and easy to build. Each have clips on the sides so you can attach them in any order you want, or just dispose them as you wish. In bag 1, we get Emma and Henry, and we build the tickets booth and the face-paint cart. With bag 2 we build the turnstile. As the levitation stand, all the 1x1 transparent round plates cover a 1x1 glow in the dark round plate. Bag 3 adds the ice-cream stall. And with bag 4, we'll finally build the levitation stand and it's magic trick performed by Camila. The magic is operated by a rotating knob at the back of the build. The completed set looks pretty good. You can scatter all the individual builds any way you want. I guess these would be a nice addition next to bigger sets and help you make a large display come to life. Minidolls The set comes with 2 minidolls and one microdolls... and a little bunny with a hat. Emma in her amusement park outfit is exclusve to the set, while Camila also comes in set 41685 and 41689 but with a different loxer body part. In this set she wears a nice two layers skirt with black squares patterned white stockings. Henry, Emma's step-brother appeared only once in set 41447. Camila's cape is also iridescent, which is great... but it's a bit stiff. Conclusion Design: 7/10 - Simple builds, but one includes a magic trick!! The fact that the builds can be displayed on their own or attached together is a plus. Parts: 6/10 - The part selection is average, but we do get 18 1x1 glow in the dark round plates! Playability: 7/10 - With 4/5 small builds, the playability is good, and you can even perform a magic trick. Minidols: 8/10 - The 3 minidols are nice, especially Camila's outfit. Emma is exclusive and Henry almost. Price: 6/10 - With a ppp of 0,083€ and 3 minidolls, this set is a bit overpriced. Overall: 34/50 (68%) - A nice little set with nice minidolls and a few cool small builds, especially the levitation stand, but a bit too costly.
