  1. [MOC] [Instructions] UCS Zeta-class cargo shuttle

    My original version (posted in February) only had a single functioning 40-tooth gear / gearbox arrangement per wing. However, this was not stable long-term (one side collapsed after a week). Therefore, I doubled the number of gearboxes to eight in total when I developed the instructions. I played around with linking the gearboxes together. However, the UCS Lambda’s are mounted in series (two per wing) whereas mine are mirrored (just like the wings are). I see @gregorski904 has modified the forward wings to be in series (the gear housings are reversed). But I did not want my instructions to contain four different wing builds. Two is bad enough to repeat twice! If I had scrapped the cargo bay and aft cockpit, there would be plenty room for a larger and sturdier gearbox assembly. However, the space available was exactly right for the UCS Lambda configuration. The model is 70cm (length) 56cm (height) 38cm (width). Standing with it on bathroom scales gives me 4.9kg I find it best to move the shuttle by firmly holding the orange section on each side underneath the side cylinders - do not hold it by the cylinders alone!
  2. LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!

    Lego has swooped down on leaked pics on other sites today.
  3. [WIP] [MOC] [LDD] AT-M6 PlusSize

    Some images of the Bandai 1/350 scale AT-M6 appeared yesterday. Might be useful for design work. Once again, Bandai manage to pack more detail into a pocket model that Revell do with their light and sound versions

    The box art for the Sandspeeder suggests the Rebels are fighting moisture vaporators and dastardly snakes!

    I am far from certain but the chap was spot on with the Taj-Mahal, which is somewhat of a surprise re-release.

    If it is true, a line-up of new versions of the Bounty Hunters and Admiral Piett would be a must.

    Apparently, the chap who accurately predicted the re-release of the Taj-Mahal set has stated the SSD will be re-released in 2018!

    The Luke minifig is not a disaster on the scale of the Thrawn debacle.

    I'll be swapping those helmets on the Sandspeeder pilots onto appropriate X-Wing pilot torsos!
  10. LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!

    Looks like the new pilots have light gray torsos instead of light blue as previously pictured. Helmets of Red 4 - John D and Rey's salvaged Tierfon Yellow Aces helmet. Plus another U-Wing pilot?

    Personally I am pleased with the Luke minifig. Is it super accurate? No. But this ain't a $250 6-inch Hot Toys figure... it's a Lego minifigure. I do wish Lego would start using dual molds on SW minifigs but there appears to be a dictate to not use those techniques outside of Lego Movie / Batman minifigs. Go figure!

    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

    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!
