    REVIEW: Death Star 75159

    I was in a similar situation to you several months ago. I had always wanted the 10188 but never could afford one. Over the years I had glorified it in my mind and eventually ended up purchasing an incomplete one for only $125!. I completed it on Bricklink and assembled it, but found myself underwhelmed. I think it didn't live up to unrealistic expectations I had as a kid, maybe due to its age and very used condition? Along with that I didn't enjoy the build being stacking blocks and plates. I ended up selling it as it took up too much space. I am glad to see you enjoyed yours, I may buy another one in the future and try to appreciate it again . It still holds a special place in my heart.
  2. Please check out pics in the link below https://imgur.com/a/yUbgODy Due to time, it has not been inventoried however, looks like nearly everything is there. I included a picture of some of the rare parts as well. The instruction manual is mostly in great shape, the front cover is starting to fall off, but the rest of the pages have aged very well. Due to not being inventoried, I am asking 410+shipping(well below Bricklink) but am very open to offers. Prefer US buyers and payment through Paypal. Please feel free to reach out with any questions. I can take more pictures if desired. Great chance to get an increasingly rare set at a discount!
  3. Looking to sell my copy of this MOC. 1:8 Scale model of the legendary Lamborghini Countach by aefferen on Rebrickable. This model is absolutely massive and is definitely a great display piece. It features a 5+R gearbox, realistic suspension, pop up headlights, scissor doors, and a V12. I am looking to make shelf room for the new 42110 Defender as my supercar shelf is full and this thing takes up a lot of space! I have made some part substitutions here and there, mainly finding substitutes for the absurdly expensive red #44 connectors. I still have 4 of them in the model, but was able to avoid using any others without impacting the looks or functionality. There are probably other small substitutions in there as well that I cannot remember. Off the top of my head, I remember replacing the 14L soft axles with 12L (not visible), replacing some red thin liftarms with black ones, older curved panels with newer style ones, and replacing the red springs with yellow. I will happily help the buyer navigate these substitutions to make sure the model turns out great. Overall however, I'd say 95% of the MOC is built accurately to the Rebrickable parts list. Taking these substitutions into account, Bricklink gives a price of around $550 to build this entire MOC using a combination of used and new parts and shipping from all over the world. I will price it at $450. Feel free to message me for more details. I am very flexible on price and am willing to consider reasonable offers. I will not provide the instructions, they are the property of the designer. Looking for payment through Paypal so both buyer and seller have protection! This is a fantastic display piece and will contribute to any supercar collection! I am located in the U.S. in Illinois. Prefer U.S buyers, but can ship internationally! More images in the Spoiler

    Aftermarket Springs

    That's a good start, thank you! Just need some help deciphering this image. Does this image mean the spring length is 9.9 cm? Along with this what is the diameter and spring stiffness then?
  5. Fell out of Lego for a year or so and now the bug has bit me again. I've been looking for 9.5L shocks and the prices are crazy on Bricklink. A set of 4 would set me back over $50 including shipping. Thus I was wondering if anyone had found any aftermarket springs that could be substituted into softer shocks (which are way cheaper). Thanks
  6. Being an avid Lego collector and Star Wars fan, this set has been a dream for a long time, but it came into my life at the wrong time (I am currently studying). Despite being away from my collection, I found a deal I could not pass up and impulsively bought this set 99% complete, seems to be missing a few small pieces (greebles). However, I did not think it through and am in no position to enjoy the set. Thus I am parting with it in this condition. I have not inventoried this set, but purchased it from an extremely reputable seller on eBay (100s of positive feedback). The box is beat up and missing one flap. Instructions are included. I understand this is a valuable item and will provide as many details and pictures as needed (pictures of the radar dish, instructions, box, whatever you need) so please reach out as I am motivated to sell. Finally I understand it must be odd that this is the only item available in my shop. My complete collection is at home and is thus unavailable currently. However I have placed over a hundred orders on Bricklink as a buyer, and have sold on eBay many times https://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=trn16. https://store.bricklink.com/Rishab&utm_content=globalnav#/shop?o={"showHomeItems":1} Please take a look and reach out to me here or on Bricklink. USA shipping preferred as that is what I am most familiar with. Also feel free to make me an offer! Thanks, Rishab
  7. Got a used 10179 Millennium Falcon for $450 including box and instructions. 99.9% complete, just missing a few small pieces . Pretty happy with it, but unsure if I will keep due to space reasons.
  8. A bit late, but all I can say is wow. This is a new standard for what can be done with Technic bodywork. Think my Porsche will have to go for this, if I can get past those rare pieces

    I am using an Ultimaker 3 at my university. Covers are currently printing, and I filled about 80-90% so hopefully it works out

    What aftermarket springs do you use? I built Sheepo's Jeep with softer ones, thinking that it would hold, but the entire car sags to one side

    I was wondering if anyone with a dial caliper or something could provide me with dimensions for the 8653 wheel covers? More specifically would need the outer diameter and thickness of the area that covers the tire, and the diameter/thickness of the area that goes within the tire as seen in this pic I have access to a 3D printer and was wondering if I could try my hand at creating something similar for myself
  13. Missed an eBay auction so came here. Long shot, but looking for a used 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Condition doesn't really matter to me. It can be missing parts and beat up, as I am just looking for something to part out. Thus not looking for instructions/box either. If anyone has something feel free to shoot me a PM

    To preface, this might be a dumb question, but not familiar with the part since do not own 8880. I was wondering how the wheel 2998 connects to an axle? I know in 8880 it requires the use of special hubs, but how exactly does it work in set 8857? Is it just held in place by friction due to a bush? If so, does this method work well?
