  1. This thread collects everything you think you know about 2022 LEGO Star Wars sets; discuss your opinions here! Please read before posting: Stay on target. No wish lists. Remember that this topic is for discussing sets that are rumored to come in 2022. If it's something you wish to see or something you think that we will see sometime in the future, but not something that's actually rumored to be a 2022 set, then it is pure speculation and it belongs in the Future Star Wars Sets topic. (We also have a topic for minifigures you want to see, which might be more appropriate.) No fighting. Yes, we actually have to post that! We strongly suggest you refrain from criticizing sets on the basis of what you imagine they're going to look like. Wait till we have pictures before you start complaining. And even then, think twice about it If you post news in this thread, it will not be transferred over to the 2022 News thread. Be smart, think about what you are posting and in what thread you are posting. This IS your warning! If you have substantiated news, you can post it in the 2022 News thread. If your news is not able to be substantiated your post will be removed. If you choose to post fabricated information; you can expect to be banned. It's not worth the fifteen minutes of internet fame. Do not post watermarked or confidential images; they will be removed and the poster will be dealt with appropriately. As stated in our Member Guidelines: This topic is for 2022 discussion, not 2021, and not 2023. We will make a new topic when we feel it is necessary. If your post was on the boards, and now it's not...there is a good chance it was either hidden or moved. Off topic posts, placing info in the wrong thread, or a request from LEGO to remove something; these are all possible reasons why something may have disappeared.

  2. "I like your ship. She's a classic. Razor Crest, am I right?" My Midi-Scale collection keeps expanding with more than a classic piece of spaceship, the legendary Razor Crest from the Mandolorian. Made of 1,230 pieces, 30cm long, this baby ST-70 Gunship has a total of... zero stud across its entire surface, making it a true 100% SNOT build. At such a size, replicating all the complex angles and features of the original model required advanced SNOT techniques. I really wanted to push the limits of what could be done at such a small scale. Capturing the tapered body also required making a very compact 2 stud wide structure that could still hold everything together securely. The ship has two display modes, "in-flight" with its canted stand, and "landed" with easy-to-install landing gear. Hope you like it! ► Instructions for the Razor Crest are available at BrickVault. All pictures on my Flickr page!
  3. Hello, we are selling our entire collection. You can view many of the completed MOCs here: Godwins Hollow of Outer Godwinia or just poke around some of my posts. This will give you a rough idea of the scope of the collection. There are hundreds of thousands of sorted (by color and type) bricks, containers of sorted minifigs, every Collectible Minifig set to date, fig parts, base plates, train tracks, many completed sets (mostly Star Wars), MOCs, and MOCs, and MOCs, and an entire room of storage containers. The whole collection has been shipped back to Columbus, GA, and is in storage taking up a good chunk (60-70%) of a 20x20 storage unit. I'm hoping to sell the entire collection as a lot as I would have to rely on my aging mother to separate, show, and ship individual pieces. I had hoped to be able to move the collection back to Dubai, but between shipping costs and the cost of a dedicated display/work area, it's no longer feasible. I'm open to individuals, groups, LUGs, resellers, retailers - whoever, and all reasonable offers will be discussed. If you have any interest or questions feel free to reach out by email to lego@stewartgodwin.com or if you use WhatsApp you can add me at +971585363060.
  4. Hi Although a bit less spectacular than many (most) of the efforts on here I thought I’d post the first of a couple of recent projects for people to see and comment on. I know they divide opinion but I’m a big fan of the Microfighter range. I like the fun style, the playability, the low(ish) price and the Star Wars-ness of course. As a result I’ve collected 12 of them - all the OT sets and a few from the prequels and the most recent 2 from Episode 7 It was a little disappointing to only get 2 TFA Microfighters but as the theme has sets of opposing pairs and Episode 7 didn’t really give the Resistance a lot of new craft, the designers hands were a bit tied. Anyway, long story short: I designed a couple more in LDD, prototyped them from our box of bricks and BrickOwled the parts - and here is the first one. Briefly, the aim was to keep to the scale and design ethos of the Microfighter theme so they had to: Be no bigger than 12 studs in the longest dimension Be robust enough for swooshing about Have space for a mini-fig Have flick missiles or a stud shooter Have around 100 parts max (hmm..) Here then, is my First Order Troop Transport Microfighter. This one went through a load of iterations and build methods until I settled on an almost all plate-built design. Initially I tried making it big enough to sit a mini-fig inside but it was just too bloated looking so the compromise is that you can at least fit one in lying down and shut the ramp. It also wasn’t possible to fit a pilot in the control tower so I went for a gunner position instead and added a hatch. I tried to add a swivel for the shooter but it was getting too tall and cluttered on the top so settled for a fixed gun. Again, the fig sits a bit high but it’s OK. Buildwise it's really solid and quite heavy, just needs a little mod to the ramp hinge to make it more durable and it'll be done. Details I like - the engines, the ramp and the overall shape which is close enough to be recognisable within the style. Less successful - I completely blew the parts count at 141 although a lot of those are small pieces. It just wasn’t possible to get a pleasing rendition that wasn’t a solid block so from that perspective it was a bit of a failure. It's kind of in the right scale but its a bit chunkier next to other Microfighters - more like Battlepack scale, or Micro + or something. Regardless though, it looks quite funny with a group of troopers spilling out, like a cross between the Tardis and a clown’s car and I'm pleased with it. That’s about it so here’s a few more photos to wrap up. Comments and critiques welcome Cheers Joe

    Star Wars LEGO Photography

    Hey all, Thought id share some of my photographs of some of my Minifigs, really gotton into photography the last year or so- and my star wars lego has been really fun to shoot 'The Duel' 'Imposter!' 'Uncle Owen!... This R2 unit has a bad motivator!' loads more up on my flickr & RedBubble pages
  6. My First Entry into the Purist Minifigure Contest. - This entry is titled "The Empire" Bio's below! I hope you like them! R5-J2 Repair Droid This sleek black and copper coloured repair droid was stationed on the second Death Star during the battle of Endor. Built slightly larger than the Imperial R2-Q5 unit. Snow Trooper Snowtroopers are stormtroopers trained for operations in artic conditions and equipped with specialized gear to protect the against cold.. Snowtroopers were deployed from AT-AT vehicles during the Battle of Hoth and proved ruthlessly effective in their attack on Echo Base. Darth Vader Seduced by the dark side of the force the young Jedi Master Anakin Skywalker become Darth Vader and turned against the Jedi Order. As Dark Lord of the Sith, a master of the dark side of the Force, and one of the Emperor's most trusted servants he became the scourge of the Jedi and drove the Jedi Purge..   Scout Trooper Scout troopers, also known as biker scouts were specially trained stormtroopers of the Imperial Army's Stormtrooper Corps. They were used by the Galactic Empire mainly for reconnaissance missions. They had lighter armor than standard stormtroopers, allowing greater range of movement and flexibility out in the field. Emperor’s Royal Guard The Emperor's Royal Guard, also known as the Crimson Guard, , and under the Galactic Republic as the Red Guard, was an elite unit whose members served as personal bodyguards to the Galactic Emperor, only the most skilled soldiers in the Imperial Military qualified for the extreme selection process to join the Royal Guard.
  7. Nuts to the Falcon. The beautiful and graceful Lambda Shuttle has always been my favourite of all the Star Wars ships, and I'm delighted to present my LEGO minifigure-scaled version of this wonder. Didn't you already make one of these, Ru? Yes I did, and well-remembered! It was ten years ago, and a large part of the reason I joined EB in the first place. You can see it here. I revised it a coupe of years later but never publicised the update; you can see it here here (link to flickr folder). I had always intended to go back and tweak the original; however this is a totally new MOC. I started working on it back in 2016, but then we moved house and the LEGO went into storage for a couple of years. front The overall scale of this version is similar to my earlier version, and like the former is based around using the 6x3 vertical windscreen also found in 2015's System-scaled Shuttle Tydirium. The other major factor is the height of the rounded sides of the body: I've used the 4-wide cylinders to give what I think is the best approximation to the real thing. These are attached via a fairly complicated variety of SNOT techniques to a ten plate-high body. Not all the parts are (yet) available in white (the macaroni tiles now are, but not the 4x4 round plates with 2x2 hole), hence the splashes of grey at the sides (or trans-clear in one spot). Starboard The wings are a composite of Technic liftarms and plates. I chose this to keep the weight of the wings down; even built like this I had to work quite hard to prevent the wings flopping down too easily. Some more views: Rear High I've tried quite hard to make this accurate to the movies. There are actually two distinct versions in the movie canon - the sleek ILM model used in the space scenes, and the shorter droopier-nosed version which featured in the Home One hangar scene. The cause of this discrepancy is apparently due to the set designers at Elstree studios in the UK having access only to a few photos of the lambda, but not the ILM model itself thousands of miles away in California. If you are interested, and for a nostalgic reminder of what the Internet looked like in the early naughties, check out Lambda-class Shuttles: the Dimorphism Blooper. I've modelled this one on the ILM studio model. Mostly, I think it is accurate, but I have had to make a few compromises. The cockpit taper - which is only about a stud-width at this scale - is impossible to render without resorting to a solid-black windscreen, and instead is implied by the exaggerated taper of the cockpit sides. The cockpit is a little deeper than the original - required to allow minifigure seating at this scale; the original Kenner toys model did something similar. High close/detail I've take a bit of a guess at the sloping vent-thing under the vertical fin; it is difficult to tell from reference pictures what this is supposed to be. Pressing the silver grille-tile just in front of this operates a latch to allow the body to open. In some places aesthetics wins over accuracy. The bulges on the side of the fuselage should rise to about half-way up the fuselage sides, and should extend back about half-way along the body, but I was so happy with the effect of the mudguard pieces here that I've left them as they are. Detail Front The seven-wide cockpit does not allow a complete set of grille tiles at the front. I may have to resort to a decal on the central tile. The technic skis at the sides would perhaps work better with the pointy-ends at the front but there was no way to attach them that way round (and they could do with being two studs shorter!). There are few canon reference images of the rear. Rather than the usual blanket trans-blue tiles, I have instead tried to show what the engines might look like under the exhaust glow - inspired by this superb render by Thad Clevenger. The vents end up looking a little square; it might be possible to improve this with decals. Rear detail The extremes of the rounded rear end look a bit square, but this is the best solution at this scale, at least until LEGO produces this piece in 2x2. Here's a view from beneath. You can see the taper of cockpit sides, and how the technic skis are a little easy to knock out of position . underside One of the major challenges I faced was attaching the rounded sides of the body SNOT to the studs-up frame. Mostly this is achieved with SNOT brackets, but there was no room for this on the forward sections, which are actually attached via an internal clip. Inside here are two very hard shock absorbers which are intended to encourage the wings to sit in either 'up' or 'down' positions; see here. The smooth sections in the middle are the landing gear doors. An essential feature of any Lambda is that it must be able to fold its wings in order to land. With this, the wing-mounted guns need to fold outwards. I've also included a chin-ramp, though it is hinged a little further back into the body of the ship than on the real thing. Landed front low As you can hopefully see, there is also landing gear, with folding flaps to cover the recesses. It is retractable, as shown below: Landing gear detail The shock-absorber parts act as a kind of suspension when the ship is landed, and provide a spring action when folding to keep the retracted gear in place. It works surprisingly well. Towards the front of the above picture, you can see the cockpit floor is mounted at a half-stud offset, which allows two figures to be seated side-by-side. Having experimented with several ways to allow the cockpit to open, I found that having the nose section slide off provided the best compromise between accessibility and strength. Cockpit interior detail As you can see, the white 4L bars that frame the windscreen are held on by droid arms, and the sloping cockpit sides held in place at the front by 1L bars with claws. It's a bit fiddly to put together. The 1x4 trans tile at the rear unfortunately exposes the asymmetry inherent in any odd stud-width construction; if it were available in trans-black the stud might be better hidden! Access to the inside is easy: the whole top slides off. The red Technic liftarm at the front is a latch to keep the roof in place; it is released by pressing down the metallic silver grille tile. I've also removed a side wall for the photo. Interior I had in mind that this is the shuttle Darth Vader uses to transport Luke from Endor to the Death Star II. It is kitted out for high-ranking officers, with an Imperial Coffee Machine and an Imperial Waffle maker. For a size comparison, here's my Lambda next to the latest official playset version. Comparison to system set I really liked that set, despite is obvious compromises of proportion (and I infinitely prefer it to the hideous UCS set). I like to think that mine is on the same approximate scale to this but more proportionally accurate. The Lambda is the end result of a long process of trial and error, and I'm pleased with the result. I hope you like it too! For more pictures see my Flickr album. C&C welcome! Rufus
  8. Just in time for the end of the contest - here is my entry, the former crown jewel of my MOC collection: The K-Wing! The photos sadly aren't as good as I'd like them to be, but I think everything should be recognizeable.

  9. Disclaimer: credit where credit is due; this is a modification of the amazing X-wing moc (V2) by @Jerac (see here.) I had to make some modifications to make the theme work, but it's mostly his design. Don't know if that will disqualify me, but at the very least, treat it as a reskin. I was in the middle of designing it in Studio at the time that the contest was announced, but have since built it. In-universe (SW) history: Blackburn Squadron is group of former pirates from the outer rim who chose to align with the Rebellion when the Empire started taking control of systems in their territory. Much like the great Saw Gerrera's Partisans, Blackburn's methods are often deemed too violent for much of the Alliance's leadership. Their results, however, are rarely questions. Candidates for the squadron are heavily trained and tested before they can be considered for membership. Upon selection to the unit, every pilot must travel to the fourth planet of the unit's home system to hunt and kill two Jakerni, giant indigenous primates that rival Gundark in size, strength and ferocity. Their skulls and leg bones are then fused to the wings of the pilot's new X-wing. Real world history: The scheme is based on the Jolly Rogers series of U.S. Navy squadrons, beginning with VF-17 in WWII and passing most recently to VFA-103 in 1995. Initially, bearing just a small black "Jolly Roger" (skull-and-crossbone) flag on an otherwise normal paint job, they began to adopt the more-recognizable scheme currently utilized with VF-84. While there have been different variations, the common components are the black tail fins with large white skull-and-crossbones and gold tips, black around the cockpit that continues to the nose and "Vagabond" stripes (gold w/ black chevrons or black with gold chevrons, barrowed from VF-84's previous name.) Some have gray noses, some black and some F-4's had white ones. Build history: I adopted mostly the current version of the paint scheme, but thought the white nose was distinctive (like a skull itself), so I used it. Originally, the wings were done with stickers, but I wasn't satisfied with the results (it would have helped to have a 6 x 4 tile without studs), so I decided to "brick build" them instead. This was tricky due to the pins that stick out of the bottom. With such thin wings, I decided that they had to be fused to the top. Ended up using these to turn technic bricks for the pins to mount in. The long bones are attached with black clips, one raised by a 1x1 plate to clear the other. I haven't settled on the Vagabond stripes yet, as I had a few ideas (for example, as seen here.) Even had some sticker chevrons, but didn't use them after I went brick build on the S&CB. For the gold color, I went back-and-forth between Yellow or Bright Light Orange. Most of the actual designs are closer to yellow, but due to lighting, often look like BLO. I went with the one closer to the Trans-Yellow windscreen, which I knew I had to incorporate as soon as I saw it. Using yellow did, however, require redesigning the rear portion of the laser cannons, since ingots do not come in Yellow (but do in BLO.) Finally, the red corresponds to the inlet caution labels on many of them. At first, I used dark red, but decided to try red instead, thinking it look more like vibrant blood coloring.
  10. Hello! I'm currently going full Star Wars mode, so I am attempting to make use of all my spare minifigure parts to create characters. The picture shows some minifigs I own, feel free to point-out any character that could be made with any of these parts (added to other generic pieces from my collection), be it from Canon or EU/Legends. I'm really desperately looking for ideas.

  12. Hey everybody, I'm new to the community but I've been MOC designing for sometime now and I have finished my massive project. I've been working on it for just under two years, The ISD II The Eviscerator. It sits on a single removable stand measuring at 148 studs long with 19,225 pieces. I really wanted to capture that "It doesn't look like Lego" feel and try to give it a studio model vibe. One of my goals for this build was to have only one stand that the model sits on securely. This was an incredible challenge due to the size and weight of the model. In fact, it's what took the most time to develop through out the build. Overall, I'm satisfied with how the model turned out. This is more accurately representing an ISD II Destroyer. I tried to pay attention to every detail I could, based on a couple of star destroyer sources. It's a very modular build making it easier to assemble and disassemble. There is no interior in this model. Just pure structural integrity throughout the entire inside. Just the frame and stand are 6,000+ pieces, but this was my goal. Create as accurate of model as I could, displayed on one removable stand, and not having to limit detail because of weight and size. Anyways, enough rambling: You can view the rest of the photos here: Flickr Album Now here is some great news. If you want to build one yourself, you can! I have made instructions for this build that are available at https://www.brickvault.toys/products/imperial-star-destroyer

    [MOC] Episode 1 diorama model

    Hello there, some time ago I started to build a Star Wars diorama. It is the first diorama of this series, because I want to build all episodes. In this model are two main scenes of the first episode. On one side you see young Anakin screwing his Pod Racer on Tatooine. On the other side, you can see the battle on Naboo between Qui-Gon-Jinn and Darth Maul: If you are interested in the model, you can check it out on rebrickable at the following link: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-108496/SimonsBrickWorld/the-phantom-menace-episode-i-scenery/#details There I have posted the model with instructions.
  16. Introducing our new flagship product, in development for more than two years: the Gankona! Instructions are available for download from our website at www.jorstad-designs.com. Part count: 17,007 LEGO® bricks (17,001 without lighting) Dimensions: 50 in. L × 17 in. W × 20 in. H The Gankona (Japanese for "headstrong" or "stubborn") is our recreation of the Teroch-class Mandalorian cruiser as designed by Ansel Hsiao (also known as Fractalsponge). Ansel is an artist specializing in hard surface modeling and vehicle/spaceship concept design. His work is truly amazing, and many of you may already be familiar with his work as our Proclamator-class Star Destroyer is based on another of his original creations. Please visit the hyperlinks included below to view and support his work. The Teroch is evocative of everything Mandalorian. Meaning “pitiless” in Mando’a, the Teroch is designed for full frontal assaults, reflecting the Mandalorian single-minded focus on offense with little thought for retreat or defense. Featuring a narrow attack profile with the vast majority of weaponry facing forward, only one turret is oriented purely for rear defense. In a frontal assault the Teroch brings five heavy turbolasers and four quad turbolaser batteries to bear, allowing it to quickly wear down enemy shields. Two concussion missile launchers are located on either side of the ship’s neck for close-quarters combat. The Teroch’s size allows it to maintain a full squadron of Fang fighters. Often manufactured in conjunction with their motherships, these renowned fightercraft are deadly in the hands of experienced Mandalorian pilots. When engaged in frontal assault, the hangar bay housed within the neck of the ship grants launching fighters a measure of protection against enemy fire. Of course, with all crew and passengers in full beskar with jetpacks, who needs fighters? Aware of the ship's vulnerability against coordinated fighter attacks without a full Fang complement, engineers designed a unique anti-fighter defense system. A rapid-fire launcher mounted in the ship’s nose is capable of launching specially-modified seismic charges, mining an area of space. Charges are detonated remotely, discouraging tight knots of fighters and instead forcing enemies to spread out, making it easier for Fang fighters to engage enemies and complicating approaches by enemy bombers behind fighter screens. The Teroch’s massive engines grant it the maneuverability to efficiently keep targets within forward firing arcs, while two Class-I hyperdrives allow for quick redeployment against new threats. Our model features several custom Mandalorian minifigures from Clone Army Customs - check them out! Model Description: - Fully articulating turbolasers with locking bases. - Optional LEGO® Power Functions lights compatibility with remote control operation to light up engines and nose. - Removable sections reveal bi-level minifigure-scaled playable interior, including bridge, crew quarters, armory, brig, troop deployment and storage bays, and a speeder bay containing three stowaway speeder bikes. - Conveniently located carry points for moving the model.

  17. Hi everyone, Here are the Silver Speeder and the White Witch from the 80's TV show Star Wars: Droids. I wanted to put in figs to show the scale of the vehicles but don't have anything approximating Thall Joben, or a Holiday Special era Boba Fett, so a few substitutions were made. The Silver Speeder (well, light bluish grey speeder) - 286 pieces The White Witch - 261 pieces
  18. "Wrecker, easy with my ship. "Your ship?" My Midi-Scale collection expands again with this nanofig-scaled Havoc Marauder from the Bad Batch series. Despite the small size, I once again went for a full SNOT look and paid close attention to proportions of the original shuttle. The build comes with a discrete, transparent stand to be displayed in flight mode. ► Instructions for the Havoc Marauder are available on Rebrickable (163-page PDF). More pics in my Flickr Album.
  19. For ages known as Zebra (a code name before release, similar to banana for Hidden Side), TLG officially announced today (July 1st) the new LEGO Art theme, starting with four sets: 31197 Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe 31198 The Beatles 31199 Marvel Studios Iron Man 31200 Star Wars Sith Each set makes one of 3-4 mosaics, with the Iron Man and Sith sets being combinable to form a mega picture from 3 sets. With one set you can make 1 Beatle, 1 Marilyn Monroe, etc. The prices for each set are US$120/€120/£115. These will be available from August 1st everywhere excluding US and Canada for The Beatles, Marilyn Monroe and the Sith. Iron Man is available universally on August 1st. For those thinking this has been mentioned before, it has, but not in its own deserved thread, and basically only names of sets + theme. There was never the deserved own thread, and no pictures, which is why I’m creating it now! I don’t know about everyone else but I’m hyped for these - though disappointed at the price... Discuss here.
  20. Hello Folks, i was so disappointed by the official Lego B-Wing. I really like this underestimated spaceship.In my opinion LEGO did a gerat job to capture all the details of the asymetric design in the UCS model. But 75050 isn't the UCS version . The main differences lies in the shape of the wings. They are so thin and looks cheap in comparison to USC. This was the reason to modifiy my B-Wing and I would like to share these changes Here we go... LDD-File (lxf) Original vs. modified Modified version: rendered using Bluerender(0005) and SunFlow MOD and the real guy... B-Wing_75050_Modified_V17_LarsInteractive.lxf
  21. When it was revealed that the third of the three new Star Wars helmets would be the TIE Fighter Pilot, I was puzzled. Against Boba Fett and the Stormtrooper, a TIE Fighter Pilot is hardly that iconic. Pictures looked pretty good, though, so I was left curious about this one. 75274 TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet | 2020 | 724 Pieces USD $60 | GBP 55 | EUR 60 (variable) | CAD 80 | AUS$ 90 ___________________________ This is one of four review topics for the Helmets Collection: an individual detailed build and review for Boba Fett, Stormtrooper, and TIE Fighter Pilot, and an overview review looking at the whole line including the packaging, all three together, value and the concept in general. These sets were kindly provided by LEGO but all opinions are my own. Now, let's dive into the TIE Fighter Pilot! __________________________ Bag 1 Bag 1 has quite a colourful assortment for an all-black helmet, some of the biggest individual pieces to be found in the set, and plenty of foundations for SNOT. The only semi-rare part is the blue 1 by 1 and 2/3 brick with two studs on the side in blue, and you get 14 in this set. The core of the helmet, like the Stormtrooper, is comprised of two semi-hollow levels. That keeps the beginning build moving quickly, and doesn't feel like it's cutting any corners since there's really no need for a fully solid interior. At the end of bag 1 we're left with lots and lots of studs ready for SNOTing, and a teensy bit of the top of the helmet. With Captain Rex for size comparison, you can see the model isn't going to be very big. Rex will continue with us for reference throughout as it takes shape. Bag 2 Somehow I missed taking a picture of the contents of bag 2, but it would've been a bunch of black. The build starts with the stand, which is slightly different from the Boba and Stormie stands because it has attachment points for the gas transfer tubes. It's reinforced through the centre with technic beams. The rest of bag 2 has you attach the core to the base and build the back of the helmet, which is mainly just a lot of plate stacking and not particularly interesting. The height of the model has now nearly doubled. Bag 3 Here we've got a lot of black and a few bright flashes. Some newish parts like triangular tiles, but nothing rare. The eye portion has clever direction changes using the new-ish bracket with four anti-studs on the side, and clips for angling. It turns out well. By the end of bag 3, those eyes are attached as are the tops of each side. Bag 4 Here we've got - surprise! - a lot more black, for the mouth-piece and one side. The mouth includes two of the four prints in the set: two 2x2 tiles with black lines. Almost all the different sorts of small wedge plates also make an appearance. The mouth build uses more interesting colours for no particular reason, and is attached using a dark red riot shield, which has turned into quite a versatile piece - I wonder if the part designer could've anticipated that when it was first created. The side of the helmet entails a lot more stacking with just a few direction changes. Bag 5 Bag 5 simply builds the mirrored other side of the helmet. Here's where it ends up: Bag 6 Bag 6 contains the parts to finish off the tubes, the top of the head, the plaque, and the insignia. The chin section is a fiddly little build with a bunch of small slopes and SNOT, but it comes together nicely. But there's nothing as tedious as threading 18 little train wheels onto a flex tube - twice! And with the Imperial emblems attached and a bit on top, we're done! Here are the leftovers, not much to speak of: Completed Model - Without Stickers This set only includes two stickers, to extend either side of the mouth. I wondered what it might look like without those stickers, since they're quite small and not necessarily easy to apply in an ideal position. Given that the model is so black, to me it looks completely fine without those stickers applied. It doesn't look like something is obviously missing. Completed Model - As Intended Now here it is "all stickered up". The helmet looks quite menacing, like it should, and since it's all black any blockiness or awkward stepping of the parts kind of blends together in your mind when you look at it. Here's the back, in case you're interested. While it's complete from all angles, there's nothing to see back here. The side profile is quite good, though, and shows the interesting interplay between studded and smooth surfaces. In my mind the contrast between the textures makes the studded areas read as fabric, which of course they aren't meant to be, but overall the balance is fine and doesn't look messy, which perhaps is a risk. The stepped bows leading to the tubes are a bit abrupt, and don't look great close up, but from a distance they look ok. Final Thoughts and Rating I opened by saying that on face value, a TIE Fighter Pilot helmet seems like an odd choice for an inaugural line of three Star Wars helmets. As far as subject matter goes, it feels like something that would turn up in a second or third lineup, not the first one. However, having now built it and looked at it for a while on my table from a distance, like one would with these display pieces, I have to say it's a really good choice for the medium and well done. The TIE helmet in universe has a great deal of different angles, all very smooth and rounded, which is obviously going to be hard to pull off in blocky, angular LEGO with lots of little pieces working together. But like I said, since it's all black and there's nowhere for light to go, all of those little bits meld together and look pretty seamless. The proportions aren't perfect, of course, but unless you hold up a picture of a movie still or real-life prop next to it, it looks right. And, above all, it looks cool. Parts: This rating is too subjective to give. If you like slopes, black, and/or SNOT parts, there's plenty here for you, but otherwise it doesn't feel like what I'd call a "good parts pack". Build: 8.5/10 - The majority of it is stacking stuff, and there are (necessarily) tedious sections. Also, while all new pieces each step are outlined in yellow, I found it somewhat hard to keep track of what was being added at times (though I do have a hard-wired tendency to ignore the piece callouts, but I'm not holding that against the set). Design: 9/10 - Besides the areas with the bows leading to the tubes, for which there must be a somewhat more elegant solution even at this scale, the overall design looks great. Overall: 8.75/10 - This model is good. The build isn't the most fun or instructive, but it does the job, and the completed model looks excellent. Plus, it has the most parts of the three, so value-wise it's up there. In my review of the complete series, I'll talk more about value, as well as if I think people want a TIE Fighter Pilot helmet model anyway. Looking at it on its own, I would certainly recommend it for anybody who likes the source material, or wants a cool and mean-looking all-black thing to display. Up next: the Stormtrooper helmet.
  22. I like looking through the Purist Superhero Thread and seeing and the custom super hero figures people make, and I just thought that there shouldn't just be a thread like that for Superheros, and that there should also be one for Star Wars figures. If there is already a thread like this, then sorry, go ahead and delete this.
  23. Hi everyone, it's been a while since I last shared a custom decal with you all here on Eurobricks, I apologize about that. But, recently, seeing that LEGO will be releasing this figure at some point in the coming months when they announce their SW: Force Awakens sets, I just couldn't wait and had to make a decal for my son and I for one of the characters from the sequels. So here it is, my version of the new Sith (I assume) baddie, Kylo Ren. I shared this on my Flickr account not too long ago. Please feel free to use on your own figs, but these are to be used for own personal decal use - no commercial use without permission. Also, I'd love to see anyone's MOCs using this, so please post those below as well. Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear your thoughts and constructive criticism. Thanks and enjoy! Kylo Ren - Full Color Given my experience in decals, it isn't the best to use clear decals on a dark torso or piece (unless it's a professionally printed decal). So, I've shared the full color decal below to use with sticker paper (clear or white). This also has a preview of what it could look like next to it. Kylo Ren - Clear Decal For those of you who can get professional based decals made for this, here's the clear decal. Based on this character
  24. MKJoshA here, just hijacking the first comment for an announcement. We are taking a break from Factions here on EB. We hope to have a new RPG up and running soon. If you're interested in helping let me, MKJoshA, know.
