  1. Imperial Military Forces

    I've got Adywan's on the brain since the release of ESB:R! A better way to put it is that the various fan edits, in particular Harmy's Despecialised version, aspire to restoring the original colour grading, contrast and saturation (i.e. removing the pink-faced fleet troopers and Vader's pink lightsaber, introduced in the 2004 masters). Even Adywan begins his edits by putting things back to the original theatrical / 1993 Laserdisc release as best as possible. I grew up with the unaltered VHS copies, so the originals are my go to version
  2. Imperial Military Forces

    To answer your comments, the printing on the micro-fighter AT-AT driver is definitely superior, but the colour choice isn't. The Lego palette does not have a colour that matches the olive-grey colour of imperial uniforms. Likewise, the helmets worn by Veers and AT-ST drivers are grey-green, which isn't represented either (so dark grey is generally used). Between this and the colour correction in the 2004 Blu-ray masters (blue and over saturated, which make the rebel fleet troopers have bright pink skin tones), the AT-AT commander helmet and armour look bluish. Adywan's Star Wars Revisited details and corrects much of this if anyone is interested. According to the 501st costume guides, AT-AT driver helmets/armour can be white/light grey, but the overalls have to be light grey. The minifigure would look really plain if this were the case, so TLG made the overalls sand blue to differentiate. An ideal AT-AT driver would have white helmet/armour and light grey overalls with printed straps. I did away with the dark tan intelligence officer as there is no evidence in canon of it (TLG most likely made it whilst attempting the olive-grey colour for SW:Rebels). Advanced Weapons Research (e.g. Krennic) is under Military Intelligence, so white uniforms seem to make sense. I kept the old Snowtrooper because I'm fond of their moulded backpacks!

    I've been busy once again with my minifigures. Hope you all like it!
  4. LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!

    It's a shame LEGO continues to refuse to use dual-molded arms and legs on SW minifigs. Both Rey minifigures and the Executioner would have looked fantastic with dual-molded arms. Such a missed opportunity :(
  5. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Further minifigs to come! I wonder what sets they will come in?
  6. I asked TLG customer service a week ago: We're really happy that you're interested on our LEGO® Millennium Falcon™ building instructions! Unfortunately you have to wait a bit more time in order to find them online! In fact we'll try to upload them when there will be the official launch (1st of October)! However we can't assure you that they will be available that specific day. But I can assure you that our team will work so hard in order to upload them on our web site as soon as possible! I can suggest you to wait at most 1 or 2 weeks in order to see them available! However, given that 75192 is remaining VIP-only into November (at least), they may not be uploaded officially for a while. I doubt any buyers will bother scanning 466 A3-sized pages.
  7. I was wondering when the instructions would be made available for download. This is what TLG customer service has to say on that: We're really happy that you're interested on our LEGO® Millennium Falcon™ building instructions! Unfortunately you have to wait a bit more time in order to find them online! In fact we'll try to upload them when there will be the official launch (1st of October)!

    Dozens of Falcons are appearing on eBay now... The scalpers work quickly! Signed versions from Leicester Square too. I feel so sorry for those genuine fans who queued and didn't get one :(
  9. Future Star Wars Sets

    With all the TLJ news/reveals coming through from Force Friday II, I haven't seen much attention to Poe's 'addition' to his X-wing. It should be pretty easy to modify the existing set or MOC, but I would not be surprised if we see another official release in the future.
  10. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Awesome! Size and scale-wise, a length of 840mm / 8mm (one stud) = 105 studs 105s / 34.75m (in-universe length) = 3.0 studs per metre
  11. UK Sales

    My local Sainsbury's were busy today updating stock in the Lego aisle - I picked up some 75138 Hoth Attacks for £6 each.
  12. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I'm intrigued by the resemblance the Heavy Scout Walker has to a Strandbeest.
  13. [MOC] Scarif Battle

    Terrific diorama! Neat to finally see an AT-ACT alongside a cargo shuttle Nice job with the effective shoreline water and moving landing pad transfer sled.
  14. [MOC] [Instructions] UCS Zeta-class cargo shuttle

    A quick one-piece change, alerted to me by @bricksmarlin: On page: 758 - change the 1x10 plate for a 1x6 plate. 759 - ignore the (x2) 1x2 plates. That will make the topside panels line up properly, as they were in my original build. The free-sitting panels are intended to make it easier to access the interior without disrupting the wings.
  15. [MOC] [Instructions] UCS Zeta-class cargo shuttle

    Wow, awesome to see it take shape! Hope you found the build straightforward. Your model is actually more optimised than mine is, since I still have substitutions in place. I tore it down last night and set about configuring it to my own instructions. I originally had the cockpit Mixel ball-joints higher up. I lowered them to give clearance for the front seats, so you might have to occasionally level out the cockpit sides. I found a small optional improvement that can be made to the wings (stage 40). On pages 525 and 631, either: a) slide a 7L technic axle behind the 3L technic pin (blue) b) replace the 3L technic pin with a 10L technic axle Oh, and take the opportunity now to swoosh it around it becomes much harder once the wings are on!
