  1. Hi all, Long time no see! I had a bit of a tidy-up in the hobby room recently and decided to dismantle some old MOCs including these fellas, but took some pictures first so I could share them on here. I built them about 3 years back but never got to finish them and make them look sleeker, though I was pretty happy with what I had anyway, especially War Machine. Sorta breakdown of the 'techniques' I used: Cheers, Jammie
  2. Late entry I know due to account issues, but I may as well post it as I made it a while back. A tree so big it's hard to fit through the front door... always fun figuring that out!

    If any UKers are interested I have a big lot of spare bricks that I'll never need and are just taking up space. Just pay postage (should be £2.90), or I'm looking for the Shades, Chrome Mark 42, and KF906 Iron Man suits if anyone has spares. Send me a PM and I'll reply ASAP

    Don't suppose anyone in the UK has a spare Iron Man Mark 15 Sneaky figure? Mine came with very wonkily printed eyes... I have a fair few spare Iron Men bits so I'm happy to trade for just the helmet. Got a big ol' wish list of other things I'm after:

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    Nope! I got lucky last year and got several sets of Batman capes and undead soldier capes from LotR. Worth checking! Got about 30 LotR eagles for 5p each as well

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Adore the Republic Fighter Tank. As it is probably my favourite EU/PT vehicle and I already have two of the last one, I'll have to get at least two of these as well. The Clone Gunner is fantastic, wish there was a second included! Aayla is gorgeous, hope she has a double sided face with a calm expression. Transformation set is good too though it's a shame Palps isn't a new figure based off his more red RotS costumes. All TFA sets are poor (I'd never like them anyway as I though the film was crap) apart from a figure or two e.g. Guavians, and a couple of new pieces like the riot shield and trans clear wings. The Quadjumper is a stupid set to make when they haven't covered half the material in AotC... I can see that sitting on shelves for the next five years in the discount section. The calendar has no PT things in there so I'll skip it unless it goes on sale. Freemakers sets offer a couple of great new figures! Intrigued by the hunter droid and McQuarrie. Bounty Hunters set is a good little pack, though I would have preferred a larger build with the same figures and a new battle pack instead with trooper types we haven't been able to get easily in large quantities yet e.g. 501st /327th legions and other Clone units, revamped Rebel Fleet Troopers etc... All in all I'll probably get the three smaller sets and Bricklink any other things that interest me. Gotta save up for the Superhero stuff! EDIT: Just noticed Aayla's other face. Fantastic!

    Some Rude Moderators?

    As you said yourself, the SW forum is not 'pretty'. I hardly post on EB anymore because of the sorts of things these mods have to deal with every day, despite numerous warnings to stop. The level of 'discussion' in the rumour thread is incredibly annoying, and people get away with far too much IMO. Simply using google, the front page of the topic containing information, taking a few minutes to read previous pages or use the search function, or realising life isn't about having a high post count or when you can buy a LEGO set would cut down the number of pages in the thread by half. IMO what Stash said was completely fair, and tbh I'm very surprised some obvious repeat offenders haven't been banned yet. Some members have even been lucky enough to be going in and out of the chamber a couple of times without being banned. I remember back in the day that when people were put in the chamber once, they changed for good or didn't come back. It's clearly not due to the mods, but the people posting. People nowadays don't seem to listen unless it's a hard warning or threat, I'm sure there were at least three warnings prior to Stash's post from other mods. It must be very frustrating to deal with this sort of behaviour on a forum meant for AFOLs. I know if I was a moderator the ban hammer would be coming down hard, but that's why I'll never be a moderator.

    Hmm, maybe I won't bother then. What stores do you guys recommend that always have good shipping times and good quality figures? You are experts compared to me! Basically trying to get all the Iron Man and Batman variants as well as anything else that looks good! Off the top of my head and a quick google I need SY605, Igor, Bleeding Edge, Mark 3, and the new Decool chrome ones. Pretty sure I have a spare set of SY262 if anyone wants to trade? Edit: Also just remembered that I have a massive amount of spare minifigure parts (arms, hands, legs, bases etc) from whatever sets I got last time

    Typical... spent ages adding items to the basket and I've been after most of them for ages Care to elaborate a bit? Did the order not arrive or something? Anyone else had similar issues?

    Anyone ordered from the store TreasureCase on AliExpress? Thinking about placing an order from them, but I can't see if any of the feedback is from people in the UK...

    Star Wars Prequels: Good or Bad?

    I don't see what this thread really adds to SW discussion. This has been debated endlessly elsewhere and in the Star Wars thread. As I said there last time this came up, on other forums you would be shunned for making this post. It just encourages silly negativity, emotions, and overused, frequently disproved, arguments. But against my better judgement I voted anyway... I laughed when I saw 'should Disney remake the Prequels'. I mean seriously? The majority of SW fans and general public don't give a damn about gripes some people have with those movies, and neither does Disney/Lucasfilm. They bought the property as a whole and it is one Saga, like it or not it always will be, and it will be treated as one unified story. All the references in Rebels, TFA, Comics, and RO wouldn't be there if they thought otherwise. We wouldn't have all this new Star Wars without them. So a silly question, no offence. Overused CGI? Have you seen RO and TFA? Have you seen other recent movies (that wouldn't look so amazing if the PT hadn't done so first)? Would you rather obviously fake puppets/matte paintings/bad blue screen? Bad acting? Have you really watched the OT and new films? Have you seen other movies? They aren't all stellar either. Please look on other sites like jedicouncilforums if you want to appreciate these films for what they are, talk with people who have watched the films hundreds of times, and enjoy Star Wars as a whole - these sorts of topics/discussion seem to be unnecessary afterwards. People need to just get over it and move on, and if they are wondering things similar to you they should just look up the discussion elsewhere instead of beginning another. What matters is we are very lucky to have such a massive universe of lore to be interested in (and more than half of that is thanks to the PT). If more thought that way, this fandom wouldn't be considered one of the worst (if not the worst).

    Star Wars

    This has to be one of the best pieces of comedy I've read, so many good jokes! Seriously though, great job to once again derail the thread into bashing, after multitudes of the previously valid points (for and against all SW) that others have made coherently and maturely, without ridiculously exaggerated (and clearly misguided) accusations - not arguments. It would help a bit adding an 'I think' or 'IMO' here and there. Honestly, it doesn't even matter to me that it's the PT you're bashing, it could be the OT/ST/EU for all I care. IMO the sort of reply you have posted is what drives this fan base to be one of the most disliked. It comes across all kinds of stupid and bait-ish, and would probably get you timed-out/banned on quite a few SW-only forums... if anyone paid any attention to such a post - plus it really ticks me off. Meh, your loss I suppose. Not going any further with this on here anyway, I feel like I've wasted my time responding already. Anyway, I saw a couple of hilarious Star Wars memes that came up the other day that I'd never seen before. Really made me chuckle: Also, anyone seen this old video game concept art for Kenobi if he fell to the dark side? Wish they had made an else-world sort of game which involved that. So I present a what-if scenario to discuss: if Obi Wan and Yoda (or just Yoda) had gone to Anakin first, could they have talked him down? And if Yoda had let Obi Wan fight Sidious, would Kenobi be turned instead? Probably not, but fun to think about or speculate on Honestly, while Anakin had fallen so deep into the dark side at that point, I could see Yoda+Kenobi+Padme combined as being able to at least reason with him (though he wouldn't be redeemed, he would not stay a Sith). I think the crucial moment is in Palpatine's office however, and if Anakin had instead sided with Mace. I would guess at that point Sidious would either retreat or kick their butts. As a side note, I had another thought about the emphasis on Anakin being the Chosen One in the films. I think that is really one of the main reasons he acts the way he does. He is told from the start he will change the ENTIRE galaxy for the better, which is obviously an enormous responsibility and has many effects of the psyche. I don't blame him for getting mad at his mentors holding him back, after being told he will fulfil such a prophecy, and therefore loosing control in the wrong manner as opposed to being taught how to channel it. In a way I think the Council didn't really know how to handle him!

    Star Wars

    In a way I wish I could have been there to see when it all started, because the many feats and the hype the original films achieved is astounding. Not sure how it was in the UK though, but I'm sure it was crazy in the US. I'm very happy to have grown up with the Prequels though; the opening scene to RotS will always make me tear-up! The PT was insanely popular and hyped with my generation too, I think it was easy for the older fans and criticisers to not see that, which is a shame. I'm glad so many people love TFA, even though I am not as fond of it as I would like to be. But hey, at least all the movies have greatly touched each generation, and while there are arguments, there is nothing that everyone whole heartedly agrees is awful!
