    [MOC] Old Republic - Ambush at the old Sith temple on Takodana

    These are led lighsabers from Lightailing.
  4. The Crimson Pilgrim's crew, leaded by the Jedi Hunter Nidara Ludimi, flew to Takodana to retrieve a hidden Sith holocron. But Darth Severus was the first to arrive, and he set an ambush at the Sith temple entrance. Nidara, her padawan Nell Catagaan and Grayman had to retreat and barely got back to their ship before leaving the planet, but Severus' ship, the Wrath, was waiting in orbit and the Pilgrim was heavily damaged before escaping by jumping in hyperspace. I've built this scene in October 2018 for a convention, but never took pictures of it. It was built to show a confrontation between the two crews of the Crimson Pilgrim and the Wrath, which I also built 2018. While I consider that the Wrath isn't finished yet, I thought I could share this little diorama. You can see a picture of a convention where I displayed both the Pilgrim and the Wrath on each side of the Takodana's diorama.

    [MOC] The Harvester

    That's strange, because I4ve been posting MOCs for years... but not much Star Wars though. The grey thing is supposed to be the wreckage of a Star Destroyer bridge at the same scale. But I have to admit that at this angle, it looks a bit weird

    [MOC] The Harvester

    The Dawn’s Raiders Guild is an old organization that has been acting in the shadows for centuries. They specialize in salvaging equipments and ship’s parts from space battlefields. They excel at analyzing archives and other sources to locate lost ships or artifacts. Throughout their history, they never associated to any other faction, but sold items and parts to all. What they didn’t sold, or decided to keep to themselves, they used to build a fleet of transport ships, tugs, and what they’d need for their work. But they also assembled larger combat vessels and fighters to protect themselves. The Dawn didn’t supported the rebellion in their fight against the Galactic Empire, but a few Raiders either helped them recover some parts or sold them with a special discount. In the recent years, they feared to deal with the First Order and so completely avoided them or the Resistance. But when captain Zar Mioln received Lando Calrissian's call for help, he decided to join the battle and set course to Exegol with his ship: The Harvester. The Harvester is an ancient Zenith-class cruiser that served in diplomatic mission during the Old Republic. It was salvaged by the Dawn’s Raiders Guild somewhere in an uncharted quadrant of the outer rim. It was in relatively good shape, except for the port side of its hangar bay that was completely destroyed. The Raiders repaired the ship, while increasing its hangar bay size, and adding various feature that would help them in their operations, like a larger bay opening and powerful tractor beam projectors. Under captain Zar Mioln command, the Harvester carries a fleet of tugs and utilitary crafts used to tear down large ships’ wreckages. And to protect its operations, it can count on a squadron composed of reassembled starfighters or bombers parts, what the corellians would call Uglies, but in a far efficient and elegant way due to the skills and resources the Dawn’s engineers have access to. Zar Mioln personal fighter is the Uterceptor, a salvaged U-Wing with Tie Interceptor wings mounted on the starboard side, and heavily armed. He leads a squadron composed of a few Z-Ceptors and X-Bombers. My entry for the Assemble the Fleet contest.

    [MOC] Micro Zenith - Old Republic escort Cruiser

    Thanks everyone Yes I managed to scale down the cost by far more than 5!! I'm considering making free instructions for it...
  10. Almost exactly six years ago, I built a MOC, the first non-digital one since I get out of my Dark Age... And the Assemble the Fleet Contest on Flickr was the exact thing I needed to pay hommage to that MOC I like so much. So I started thinking how to scale down a 160 studs long spaceship fit into 32 studs. I tried to keep the shapes, the colors and details as much as possible, and it was no easy task. Of course some compromises had to be made in some areas. I also corrected the one thing that bothered me for all these years: adding hangar bay doors on both sides.

    [Review] #75269 Duel on Mustafar

    Thanks everyone for pointing out my mistakes (two more reviews to go, so I still have room for improvement!)

    [Review] #75269 Duel on Mustafar

    Set information Set Name: Duel on Mustafar Set Number: 75269 Number of Pieces: 208 Theme: Star Wars Year Release: 01/2020 Prices: £19.99 / $19.99 / €24.99 (Euro prices may vary) #75269 on Brickset #75269 on Rebrickable Packaging The front of the box shows the usual Star Wars theme for non RotS sets. As usual, the bottom right corner shows the 2 minifigs included in the set: Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. The back of the box shows the set and all the play features. Content of the box The box contains 2 numbered bags and the instruction booklet. Minifigures The set contains 2 minifigures: Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker in their Mustafar outfit. Both minifigs are exclusives from head to toes... but not up to the hait pieces. Build The build is easy but not that interesting. The first bag will create the two base halves, each with a sliding path, while the second bag will add the two platforms and details. Play features There are lots of rotating or sliding parts, that makes that set a real playset, but I'm honestly not sure if children would actually play with it. The set could also be a displayed completely folded in or out, and make a nice display model, even if some modding may be required. There is a small mecanism to throw lava in the air, but it doesn't work that well. Conclusion Design: 7/10 - The model is nice and the mechanisms for the platforms are well done, but the lava could have been better (less red, more flamish yellow) . Parts: 6/10 - The part selection is average, except for the trans-orange parts. Build: 5/10 - A pretty straightforward build with no interresting techniques. Playability: 8/10 - The set has lots of play features, and the platforms for the two duelists are nice. Minifigs: 10/10 - The two minifigs are nice and detailed but also exclusive! Price: 8/10 - With a ppp of 0,12€ and 2 exclusive minifigs, this set seems is rather interesting. Overall: 44/60 (73%) - A nice playable set, with great minifigs, but nothing more. The focus couls have been less on the playability and more on the display model aspect.
  13. Set information Set Name: Luke Skywalker's Landspeeder Set Number: 75271 Number of Pieces: 236 Theme: Star Wars Year Release: 01/2020 Prices: £24.99 / $29.99 / €29.99 (Euro prices may vary) #75271 on Brickset #75271 on Rebrickable Packaging The front of the box shows the usual Star Wars theme for non RotS sets. As usual on the bottom right corner are the 3 minifigs included in the set: Luke Skywalker, C-3PO and an anonymous Jawa. The back of the box shows the set play feature: an openable hatch to store goggles. Content of the box The box contains 3 numbered bags, the instruction booklet and a sticker sheet. I'll apologize right away as I misplaced a sticker while building, but noticed my error only when editing the pictures. Minifigures The set contains 3 minifigures: Luke Skywalker in his Tatooine outfit with a poncho, the usual C-3PO and a Jawa. Nothing new here, except for Luke's poncho. Build The build is easy and features a lot of SNOT building techniques that are pretty interesting. The result is a nice Jawa cave, and of course Luke's landspeeder that looks great with more detailed engines than the 3 previous iterations. The use of stickers for the sides instead of flex tubes is for me a good solution as it implies SNOT building and more parts, but the downside is obviously more stickers in a set that already uses a bunch of them for the engines. The only other option would be for Lego to provide printed parts for the side tubings or the engines! The set comes with a few nice parts, like the Brick 1X1X3 1/3, W/ Arch in light blueish grey, and some recolored parts in Dark Red and Nougat. For me there is still one key part that is missing: the lanspeeder's windshield! If Lego wants to continue releasing Luke's Landspeeder every two years, they could look at the movie and give us a more accurate windshield. Play features The set's play feature are quite simple: an openable hatch on the landspeeder, and a rocky cave for the Jawa to hide in. I had the previous landspeeder still built so I took a few pictures side by side of the models. I clearly prefer the new one, which is still perfectible but adds lots of details especially on the engines areas. Conclusion Design: 8/10 - The model is really nice, but relies too much on stickers for the final look. Parts: 8/10 - The part selection is very good, with some great new parts! More printed parts instead of stickers would have been nice though. Build: 8/10 - Interesting build for the landspeeder with nice techniques. Playability: 8/10 - The cave is anecdotic, but the landspeeder is rather enjoyable to play with. Minifigs: 6/10 - The minifigs are the main downside of the set, with nothing new except a poncho. Price: 5/10 - With a ppp of 0,126€ and 3 unexclusive minifigs, this set seems a bit overpriced . Overall: 43/60 (71%) - A rater nice set, with an iconic vehicle... but the minifigs aren't up to the landspeeder.

    [REVIEW] 75263 - Resistance Y-Wing Microfighter

    I don't think the old pistols fits the SW universe, and especially this character.
  15. Set information Set Name: T-16 Skyhopper vs Bantha Microfighters Set Number: 75262 Number of Pieces: 198 Theme: Star Wars Year Release: 01/2020 Prices: £17.99 / $19.99 / €19.99 (Euro prices may vary) #75265 on Brickset #75265 on Rebrickable Packaging The box of the set is the usual size for double Microfighters. On the front we can see both models and the two minifigures, while the back shows the few play features and another scene. Minifigure The set comes with two minifigures: a Tusken Raider and a T-16 Pilot. The Tusken got a new prints and head this year, and for now is available only in this set and #75270: Obi-Wan's Hut. The T-16 Pilot is exclusive to this set, but uses non-printeg dark red legs. Builds As usual, the set comes with two numbered bags and two instructions booklet, one for each Microfighter. That allows to invite a friend or family to build together, or organize a small building contest! The Bantha is a nice build and looks great... from a certain angle... The neck area don't looks that great when viewed from the side. Also, the blue Technic pins used to attach the horns shows a bit. Using a 1x1 brick with stud on side would have looked better, but a bit more fragile. The T-16 looks really good, except maybe for the Technic pins visible from the back, bt like the bantha's horns, there are other solutions to hide them. I must say I have a soft spot for the T-16 since the Rebel Assault video game... (The transparent parts were added by me to support the model) Conclusion Minifig: 8/10 - A minus point for the T-16 Pilot legs, but the two minifigures are great. Builds: 9/10 - Both builds are very nice, and we finally got a bantha! Price: 9/10 - With a ppp of 0,10€ and two minifig, one of which is exclusive, and a nice part selection, this set is a great bargain. Overall: 26/30 (87%) - A great Microfighters set, with only a few negative points, but so much good ones.
