  1. What UCS has not been done? (MOC or SET)

    Hi, IMO, you should rather proceed that way : - what ship is relevant to do with a UCS treatment - and then what ship can be made properly with lego elements You will see that there is not a lot of SW ships which comply with those 2 statements.
  2. Edwin Korstanje scaled custom construction kits

    Really ? Oo But when you produce a kit, you have to deal with 100K parts, don't you ? I suppose you take only new parts. Can you tell what average price per part do you have ? It would be something interesting to know given the huge quantities you buy.

    Interesting thread. :) How do you source such massive quantity of parts ?
  4. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Quite a good surprise indeed. The round shapes are still a bit disappointing, and the huge black support is ridiculous.
  5. No problem. My review are not published yet. 42068 will come this week end, 42069 in the next week, and 42070 after. I have quite a good opinion on 42070, though. I do not think that the model is meh. More details when I publish my review.
  6. My point is that it took 40 years to see such a (simple) axle in an official product. I guess that adding suspension generally doesn't takes much when steering and transmission are here already. So, they always included suspension when an axle had steering + transmission.
  7. Fun fact : first Technic set ever with an axle with transmission + steering but no suspension.
  8. I built the model yesterday. Quite suprising to have that many parts moving, but it works quite well. No backlash.

    The UCS BB-8 is so ugly. That's hilarious ! It is a cube ! lol
  10. Next UCS star Star Wars set?

    If you start with 0 part and want to stick to my design, it is definitely way more than 1000 $/€.
  11. Information regarding lego designers is very reliable on Sometimes, it is something we can guess. And it is actually quite funny to guess who did what model (and I confirm, 42068 looks very much like Alfred style). But if the name of a designer is written in a techlug review, you can be sure there is no mistake : I got the information from people inside TLG (Technic team manager and designers).

    The ball is maybe built with dish 6x6 and 8x8 on the sides, and maybe in the "corners". Just a suggestion. Never tried something like that. And so ? How is it design ? Details ? Printed parts (dishes) ? UCS stand ? Describe it !
  13. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Are you sure about that ? 100€ MSRP won't make such a big model for a set that is supposed to be UCS. I would say 900-1000 parts.
  14. Thanks ! Did they reach me ? Not at all. Being credited and inspiring other Lego fans is flattering. Being copied and ripped off is not flattering. Those who say they would be flattered probably do lego stuff that no one would be interested in stealing. Financial hardship ? If we consider that some kind of retribution is due, then yes.
