    Very very nice! To "lighten" the heavy roof, perhaps lower it by one plate? Or does that ruin the scale?
  2. Oh I completely agree with you on that matter! I've never doubted the ability of any designer... However, the difficulty of a topheavy creation, thin legs AND the immense set of rules the designers have to face before anything is finalized by LEGO to fit their target audience, will not refrain me from my previous statement. It's that combination of factors, NOT the ability of any designer who works there.
  3. Simple: a UCS AT-AT (It's not too violent or boring, but simply too difficult for LEGO to construct, apparently.

    Bricklinking Modular Buildings

    No issues at all, mostly replaced 1x3's with a combination of 1x1's and 1x2's. 1x8's replaced with 1x4 and 1x6. I love my sand blue grocer and mostly have it mirror built to differ from my my sand green one.

    a new AT-ST (sizewise perfect for UCS) would be welcome. A less studded version than the previous one please.

    Although everybody is tired of Hoth (especially after 75098), I would love to see a $350-$400 AT-AT.

    Isn't that Vaders' TIE? The bomber has a double cylindrical hull.

    As a huge OT fanatic, i love all your comments! Seems the OT vehicles still get the most love. Keep it up!

    I agree completely. I wouldn't even be surprised if the chassis of 10179 is almost the same to this one. I've built my BL'ed 10179 again last week in anticipation of this re-hash. The size and building techniques are very very similar. Although it probably won't be a day one purchase for me (for purely financial reasons), I'll definately pick it up this year.

    About that dish... the teaser vid had BB8 in it... Force friday is all about The Last Jedi... why show the original trilogy dish on the advertisement? I'm not Spock but wouldn't it be more logical to show the TFA dish on it?

    As far as the rigging goes... Wasn't TLG the company that gave us the 8 wide earth blue arches in the winter village market because the fans requested those for rebuilding retired modular buildings? They actually told us this in the designer vid... Now back to the rigging: what is a very expensive part for bricklinking a 10179? I think the rigging is there as fan service for all the people who already Bricklinked a 10179. Can't wait for this one! Hans did an amazing job capturing the details. Edit: although rigging is not the most expensive part... it is one of the hardest to replace properly.

  13. It sounds like a 32x48 footprint... Pretty massive but a normal modular has a 32x32 baseplate and is "only" 150-160 euros. So I expect to see many many many details and microbuilds.
