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

    Great ideas! I might also suggest a UCS version of Kylo Ren's command shuttle since the system scale set was so far off in color and functionality.
  2. [MOC] [UCS] Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle

    Great job! You captured the shape of the main body more accurately than Lego. Your's is more elongated and resembles the movie version well. I MODDED Lego's version by turning it all black, adding the red view port and the hinges to the wings so they can fold down. I retained the "retracting" function of the wings as well. In the Lego version the studs are on the "outside" of the wings and the tubes are on the "inside." Did you reverse this construction or did you design for the studs facing out on both sides? I saw you post on the Lego Star Wars Collections FB page. Please post some more pictures here or add a link to your Flickr album.
  3. Build Your Own Plus Size AT-AT

    Too many studs! It seems all of Lego's AT-AT versions were built and designed by a 10 year old. That's how my 7 and 10 year old build their "MOC's." The FO star destroyer is the same way.

    Check out this video! The guys over at Brickvault have obtained a copy of Mirko's amazing U-wing. This thing looks so awesome. Instructions now available. https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=fJmKPat8e3o

    Nope! This is the lamest UCS set ever! 187 pcs. https://brickset.com/sets/10026-1/Special-Edition-Naboo-Starfighter

    Sorry if this has already been discussed, but does anyone know if a UCS style label was ever created for these larger AT-AT's?
  7. Sorry if this has been seen before on Eurobricks, but I just came across it and thought it was absolutely amazing! Wish I had this kind of talent! Power of the Dark Sideark Side-2 by LEGO 7, on Flickr

    Me too! All the snow came yesterday. Just curious where do you live?
  9. Build Your Own Plus Size AT-AT

    DONE! Very impressive build! Perfectly on par to what Lego should finally turn into an official UCS set. Directions were great! I will probably add some more interior details only because my 6 year old son wants to add some snow speeder bikes, rappelling lines, and some "computer" screens. Hopefully, I can snap some pics tomorrow. Thanks again for all your efforts and kind generousity for sharing how to make this awesome MOC!!!
  10. Build Your Own Plus Size AT-AT

    Started last night. If my last Bricklink order arrives before the weekend, I might have mine done by Sunday afternoon.

    I think it will depend on how much more we see of it in Episodes 8 and 9.
  12. LEGO Geonosian Arena MOC

    Wow! Amazing job well done! This would be an awesome playset. It would be a day 1 purchase for me!
  13. (MOD) 75104 Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle

    Thanks belcor! I started building the original Lego version and got the main body and primary wing sections complete and said to myself this thing definitely needs to be converted to all black. By that time I had seen Jangbricks all black conversion on youtube, and also how others had started to integrate the technic rotation disks into the design of the wings so you wouldn't have to pull technic pins in and out and to get the wings in the folded down position. I'd estimate the design is still 85% Lego's. I didn't really have to change too much with the interior wing structure, but I did have to change the wing connection point to below the the main floor level instead of above it. This prevented the bottom of the wing tips from interfering with the bottom areas of the hull and allowed the wings to rotate down to the position you see them. And WOW! I had not seen the youtube video you linked to of the full mini-figure scale shuttle and diarama on Jakku. That creation is simply amazing! However, as incredible as those creations are I would still prefer to have something like I got that represents the essential essence of the original craft, but is still "swooshable" and I can "fly" through the house recreating Star Wars adventures with my kids!
