  1. Wandered into my local (Calgary) store tonight and got a Star Destroyer no problem. Chatting to the salesguy, he said he thought they'd only have about a dozen but they actually got about twice that, and by the time I got there tonight (about 7pm) they still had about a dozen left. The Canadian Lego store site was already on backorder by the time I checked it this morning (about 8am).

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Kessel Run falcon (all figs), Solo's Landspeeder (all figs) and Luke's Landspeeder (missing Luke, except for his hair), for $80cad as a 2nd hand lot, together with the Ferrari Garage Speed Champions set... Was super-dirty but cleaned up nicely!

    Ahh, tis the season to be patient. Unrelated BnP grumble: I ordered parts (from BnP Canada) back in mid-Nov that haven't shown up yet - probably victims of the Canada Post strike and stuck in limbo somewhere. Bah, humbug! [Edit]Which of course just showed up today!

    MOC: Lego Ideas - Space Shuttle (Saturn V Scale)

    Thanks, I'm still a bit amazed - I missed one for $120 a few weeks back and thought that was my chance gone. You never know when your luck's gonna change!

    MOC: Lego Ideas - Space Shuttle (Saturn V Scale)

    Last night I managed to score a 2nd-hand 10231 from a local (Kijiji.ca) ad for $80 CAD, so I could get the dark-orange tank parts. It was missing a few inconsequential parts on one booster and all of the ground crew bits/baseplate parts (2 astronaut minifigs, though), but the shuttle and tank itself were in perfect condition (not even dusty!), so I'm feeling pretty lucky today! I had previously built the tank in white a few months ago and thought I was totally priced-out of ever getting the orange version, but now I'm back on track and working out what other parts I need to switch over to dark-orange. Loving the fancy display base design, @KingsKnight! The orange-tank version may deserve that base rather than just the basic one...

    I lucked into this super-dusty haul for $20 CAD today (on Kijiji, Calgary): Apologies to anyone I just made throw up a little in their mouths...

    Judge Dredd & Judge Anderson [Movie Version]

    I'm not a Brickheadz guy but I am a huge fan of Dredd, and these are great! Loving Joe's chin. <edit>Oops, something weird with your image links? On my browser my reply is shown over them and hid your excellent work. Sorry, everyone!

    SHIP - EAS Schwarzkopf from Babylon 5

    Awesome! Well done, and thanks for sharing! Nice sticker work, too. (totally agree about the LBG 4855s... Ah well, we can dream!)

    Trench Run MOC to Display Minifig Scale Ships

    Heh. This one? Or maybe: No worries. We all have those special moments! Thanks. I designed it just before pics of 75150 got out. I was working on a family of TIEs with that style of wings and the newer cockpit pieces at the time: MODding the @CornwailleBomber from Ideas, an Interceptor and original Fighter (both based on 9492) as well as this one, which has influences from 75082 as well. 75150 is quite a bit more compact - and might actually be better proportioned to the movie version! Anyway - back to your trench: the exhaust port is great, but you need to add more greebles and piping on the earlier trench!

    Trench Run MOC to Display Minifig Scale Ships

    No worries. No idea how it happened, but the TIE from the 75150 file link in that thread sure doesn't look anything like the TIE in your renders. Unless my eyes are completely fooling me, the TIE in your renders looks like my design - it has the much wider cockpit section, longer body and thicker wings with the click-hinge connections, and even the stud shooters are green, not red as in the 75150 file. Compare it to the render I uploaded to Flickr in May 2016: Having said all that, @SquirrelArmy, you're totally free to use it because that's why I shared the file! Just let's attribute it correctly.
