  1. Followed the link, downloaded it, and installed. Unfortunately it seems at least that specific file only changed the preferences.ini file, so no new parts or any reaul update.

    LEGO Star Wars 2019 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    It would have worked even less if they did Sullust or Lothal. While I'd love either of those, like it or not stuff from the movies absolutely sells best. There's a reason we haven't seen any TCW or Rebels UCS sets. The more expensive a set, the more risk LEGO is at if it sells poorly. I could see us someday getting maybe a Victory as like a small mini/midi set, but never UCS unless it gets a much bigger role in a movie (and even then, system-scale is probably best we could really hope for).
  3. Yes it absolutely does. Representation is vitally important. Also, I've seen plenty of discussion regarding the more City-like figures.
  4. Honestly, that flamingo mold is one of the best things to ever come out of the CMF line. Hope my minifigures like leopard print pants because I'm going to have plenty! They're going to bring so much color and life to so many builds.

    [MOC] MC80 Liberty Cruiser "The Geist"

    Thanks everyone! Plans are definitely in the works, my main hurdle is that I want to build it physically and address the likely stability issues first. I've been a bit strapped for cash, so that's going to have to wait just a little bit before it's a possibility. Keep an eye out for them though!

    [MOC] MC80 Liberty Cruiser "The Geist"

    Thanks! I probably won't do Home One (at least for now) but I do plan to build some other Mon Calamari ships like the MC30c. Ya that part will definitely take some adjustment, it's probably the weakest point. I plan to build a physical version to so if I happen to get to it before you do I'll make sure to post my adjustments.

    [MOC] MC80 Liberty Cruiser "The Geist"

    This is in 1:1250 scale, and I believe the ISD is around 1:1600 scale? So this is a bit too big to be completely accurate when placed next to that, but probably still small enough that it's close enough.

    [MOC] MC80 Liberty Cruiser "The Geist"

    I actually haven't built that set, that is a very nice technique! I used something similar for this build, though that version definitely looks a bit more stable.
  10. If you follow my Flickr page you've probably already seen most of this build, but I've finally finished and released the interior and I wanted to finally show it off here as well! Before we get started, I just want to say that I have videos of the entire build process up to watch here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6NWVRJbOK_Wf6wTjVffuE-f5U9SeC-L6 This ship was mostly modelled after the standard MC80 Liberty, but with a few small modifications. I wanted to recreate Hera Syndulla's ship from the comics, called the Geist. The Geist is actually canonically a different class of ship, however the comics generally aren't a good source material. So I just decided to base if off the MC80, and I added a few command bridges to make it more accurate to the comic. Overall I'm very happy with the shaping on the ship. It was very anxiety-inducing, but I'm proud of how it turned out. The interior took a bit of work, since interiors have never been my strong suit, but ultimately I think it looks alright. I also created some custom minifigures, as you can see, for the interior. I recreated Hera's crew based on what we saw in the comics, and included Numa from Star Wars Rebels in there as well. Mostly because I really like her and wanted to make a figure of her. Thanks for viewing! I hope you enjoyed, I look forward to any comments or feedback!

    Ninjago Legacy Contest

    I was really excited for this contest until I saw that no digital entries are allowed. Oh well, perhaps next time!

    2019 Friends Sets - Rumors and Discussion

    I have to say, Boat and Narwhal Rescue will probably be the first Friends set I ever buy. Something about it is just so appealing, same goes for the submarine set. The new coral color really compliments this line, and the new coral/sea life molds are fantastic. I haven't kept up with Friends too much, but it really looks to me like the set designers outdid themselves this year.

    Quite a number of people in this thread have expressed disappointment that the cockpit isn't brickbuilt. Stickers are an issue, but not a big of one to justify so many complaints about the entire set, most of the ones I'm referring to were made before we even knew that the cockpit used stickers.

    Ya the price is a little high, but for whatever reason the Tantive IV models have always been like that. The original 10019 was the same price for almost exactly the same number of pieces. Adjusted for inflation it would be about $290, in comparison this is a much better deal. It's only a little bit shorter too, though that's mostly because the updated proportions make it longer than the other two have been compared to their widths. Perhaps all the large parts contribute to the higher prices?

    I really do not understand all of the negativity surrounding this set. The proportions are better than LEGO has ever gotten them, by a good margin. The previous two sets are really short and fat compared to the actual ship, this model fixes that. Sure the cockpit is a bit large, but given the alternative I absolutely agree with their choice and it really isn't a big deal. The set shows a huge improvement over the last one if you compare them. I think everyone's being a bit blinded by nostalgia, there is absolutely no doubt that this new set is leagues better than the last one from an objective standpoint. So much more detailed, way better proportions, and overall a much more accurate set. I think the only real complaint there is to be had about this set is that, if you're a stickler for accuracy, the cockpit wasn't brick-built. Personally, I really like that it has an interior. We don't get enough capital ship sets, especially not for the rebels. And given the level of detail and accuracy I have absolutely no problem displaying this alongside UCS sets.
