  1. This thread collects everything you think you know about 2018 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 2018. 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 2018 set, then it is pure speculation and it belongs in the Future Star Wars Sets topic. (We also have a topic for minifigs you want to see, which might be more appropriate.) No fighting. Yes, we actually have to post that! If you post news in this thread, it will not be transferred over to the 2018 News thread. Be smart, think about what you are posting and in what thread you are posting. This IS your warning!

  3. Finally, an official addition to your Rebel Fleet is here! After over a year of tweaks and specifics, mortesv's CR-90 Corvette is officially ready to be released to the public! The MOC itself contains 2,808 parts, and its manual is 133 pages long. The MOC is built to the same scale as the Nebulon-B, making a perfect addition to a rebel fleet. Lots of interest has been generated for this MOC, and mortesv and I are really glad to make its release to the community! Looking forward to seeing all of the improved fleets as well as those that will begin with this ship. If you would like to build this MOC, we are happy to share it with you in exchange for $30. Included is the pdf instruction manual, an xml part list, LDD files, and any help you need throughout the process of making the MOC. For more information please PM me or contact me at chrdvorak@hotmail.com A rebrickable page will be available soon, but for now the xml part list will be included Here are some pictures of the MOC and of the pdf manual: https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/139982-moc-ucs-cr-90-corellian-corvette-–-blockade-runner-tantive-iv/
  4. 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
  5. Hi there, Recently I've seen amazing lego build on: Lego Ideas. Unfortunately it did not come through. So I decided to build one myself. Using Icemann pictures as references and studying sideshowtoy.com collectibles I've come up with somewhat different build than original Icemann's. Went through dozens of ideas how to create round probe body and head and trying to decorate it as close as possible to movie and star wars wiki designs. And I've ended up with this build: Some more pictures can be found here: https://imgur.com/a/2jOkj Drone stats: Brick count: ~950 (got 100 blocks bump from version 1.0) Dimensions (WxDxH): 12cm x 12cm x 10cm / 5" x 5" x 4" + arms stretch about 12cm (5") [excluding antennas] All arms can move independently - each arm joint has it's own lego-joint and whole arm is mounted on towball joint type, also head can rotate freely. Feel free to comment and have a good day :) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- UPDATE: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thx for all replays and for pointing out one major flaw in probe design - to small head (thx Meatcan!). I did some work and here is it, improved probe - had not time to bricklink it thou :) As promised, I'm posting LDD file for a probe, but this time with detailed PDF manual. If you'd like to throw some money in my general direction - please do not hesitate :P [paypal] Here are some new renders of the new version: https://imgur.com/a/80VR1 And here are files to download: PDF: https://goo.gl/cQ6pFX LDD: https://goo.gl/qg83ua Best
  6. Lucky LEGO finds

    I have been lucky twice with lego : The first was when i was about 8 and i was walking with my dad past this charity shop by my house. When i look in i was astonnished to find a huge box with what i would later find out to be : 6376 breezway cafe 6666 ambulance (best ambulance ever) 6552 rocky river retreat 6398 central precinct HQ 6472 gas n' wash express (the one that the new garage comming out is based on) 6595 surf shack 6670 rescue rig 6593 blaze battler 6353 coastal cutter 6658 bulldozer and many more including some big truck with a space shuttle on it! and baseplates, cars, trees, and a load of figs! these sets created the best city ever made and all my friends were sooooo gelous! :-D and all for
  7. And here is my latest MOC, a Gozanti-class cruiser modified for deep-space exploration of the fringes of the known Galaxy. (/U version) Gozanti in space by Veynom, on Flickr First, a quick introduction to this Gozanti spaceship. It appear briefly in the prequels and can be more extensively seen inside the Star Wars Rebels anime series. I've chosen to built the latest from SW Rebels. The most visible difference is around the wings and the reactors but also regarding the color scheme based on 2 shades of greys. However, and let's be blunt, whatever the subversion, this ship is plain ugly and by far not the most elegant from the Star Wars universe, except maybe for those (a bit like me) who consider that because it is ugly then it must be an attractive ship. TLC has already released a set about this hip under reference 75106: But, without any second thought, we may agree that this is not their best rendering of a Star Wars ship. In short, it is just ugly and the only few sections where it could have been sleek have been slaughtered by an horrible greebling. Thereofre and because it was so ugly, I decided to make a nicer less ugly version of it. The main idea was to make a model more or less 3 to 4 times bigger and thus multiplying all dimensions of the 75106 by a factor of around 1.5. The final result is this model: Gozanti/U-class Cruiser by Veynom, on Flickr A small ship of 109 studs long (89 studs with the probe). As I built it during the month of September, I decided to add a forward probe in order to reach the mythical lgenth of 100 stuffs and participate to the SHIPtember contest. It results in a version which is a bit less canon but still probable within the Star Wars expanded universe. The resulting asymmetric forward body helps in breaking the otherwise monotonous aspect of the Gozanti without crippling the ship with excessive greebling. I could have also easily added the 11 missing studs to reach the 100-stud's length but as I worked without any detailed schematics (and online pictures are often contradicting each others). And in the end, basta, you will see many Lego Gozanti without a probe but mine is unique. Gozanti nose by Veynom, on Flickr I have integrated the playability features from the original set, except the shooters and springloaders that I despise in an very imperial way. Gozanti - Zoom on the central engine section by Veynom, on Flickr When you turn the black section of the central engine, both turrets will rotate. Absolutely useless but quite fun during a fair. The TIEs can be launched exactly like in the original set. I should make larger TIEs as well. There are 7 opening panels of all kinds: cockpit, forward port side, lateral sides (port & starboard), forward roof, main body and Ackbar hatch. A friend of mine felt quite inspired by my model and created several renderings. All of these are pure digital rendering and my original MOC is indeed grey. Those pictures are just for the sake of having fun. Gozanti bringing some UCS Millennium Falcon to replenish the stocks by Veynom, on Flickr Gozanti-class Cruiser - Clone Wars by Veynom, on Flickr Ferrari Gozanti by Veynom, on Flickr Gozanti-class Tanker Octan by Veynom, on Flickr Gozanti Tanker refuelling a Mobquet by Veynom, on Flickr A small picture of the Pax Imperialis (Imperial peace) guaranteed by a Gozanti orbiting quietly over Lothall. Gozanti over Lothal by Veynom, on Flickr And a few pictures of the built process. 15th of September: I started with the wings.

  8. I have lost a collection due to flooding. The background information can be found here - The issue I am having is with pricing. I know I am selling as bulk but this is really bulk sets and not bulk parts. I need to know where I should set the reserve price. I am thinking of around .08 per piece. Below is a list of my sets. I will ship overseas but it will be expensive. I shipped one set to my nephew in Sweden and it was $75... This is not going to be easy but it is a great opprotunity for a collector and a great parts hoard for the MOC builder.

  9. Hello, all! Here is my UCS Venator Class Star Destroyer, I began this project back in 2016 and it is near completion. Instructions will soon be available, look further into the thread to find examples. Here is the old thread if anyone is interested: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/123296-ucs-wip-moc-venator-class-star-destroyer/ Update: Here is the current model as of today (13/10/17)! Thanks, Ellis :)
  10. [MOC] YT-2700 'Break of Day'

    My Freighter Wars entry. I envisage the YT-2700 as a design brought in after the fall of the Empire in response to a rapid increase in trade (legitimate or otherwise) once the industry was free of Imperial regulation. The two large cargo holds opening up wider freight possibilities in terms of type and volume of cargo. The 2700 began to decline in popularity with the rise of the First Order. Galactic conflict made such a specific-role freighter less desirable than other multi-purpose models as it lacked flexibility but some remain in use. The 'Break of Day' is owned and operated by Nix Vellon and Jeroh Saael, a couple who mostly ran charter consignments for the Republic. The destruction of the Hosnian System has left them at a loose end, unsure of their future. Thanks for looking. I don't dabble in Star Wars much (even though I'm a huge fan) so any feedback is appreciated. Luc.
  11. Hello everybody and nice to meet you, I'm a new member on Eurobricks, I presented myself a few days ago here! Today I try to open my first thread, and doing so I would like to show you those creations of mine. They are not exactly mocs, as they are based on official sets, but they are sort of modifications I considered necessary to improve the original Lego models. Down here you can find the pictures of the Tie Fighter, a couple of posts below you can see my modded U-wing! So, let's start: [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr There are more modifications than you can probably see at a first look. First of all, the wings: black stripes have been placed on the inner side of the wings, and the outer black plates has been replaced with tiles. Inner and outer stripes has practically the same angle, so they blend easily in the model. Horizontal lines are realized by using 1x2 jumpers, diagonal lines with longer tiles, and are kept in place only with a 1x1 plate that allows the rotation of the elements. They are not very sturdy, but are more than enough if your plan is to show the model only on the pedestal. There were also some dbg plates in the wing panels, I replaced them with lbg to uniform the color. Moving to the cockpit, a big part of the curves have been redesigned to improve the sphere effect. Lego designers were clearly forced to create a playable solid model (and to include the horrible springload shooters), limitation I didn't have, so I could replace some pieces to improve the geometries and collocate the red parts in a more trusty way. I also used two small red stickers to create the right angle, but it hasn't been a so good idea, probably. The front printed round element has been rotate by 90 degrees to blend its joint with the red section. In the future I will probably replace the whole piece with another withound the joint (does it exist?) and in a different color, because I don't like the choice to use a transparent red piece. Another modified part is the joint of the cockpit with the wings, where I used some grill 1x2 tiles instead of simple 1x2 black tiles, as the real model shows far more lines than the actual set. Also the antenna has been simplified with smaller pieces to respect the right proportion with the ship. [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr The rear of the model has been totally redesigned, as you can see in the previous pictures. The engines on the side are definitely bigger and more protruding than the set's ones. Take a look at the end of the post to see a comparison with a toy model. I'm not sure about the red wake I included, but it's definitely nice! There were also some visible technic parts that have been covered with black tiles. In the following pictures you can see the shape of the edge lines, more rounded both in the lower... [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr ...and upper side: [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr To achieve that, on the upper side of the cockpit I replaced part of the plates with tiles or slopes because I personally don't like visible studs. Lastly, here it is the pedestal I created with spare technic parts. It is not adjustable as the one you can find in the UCS model, but keeps the fighter in a good angled position very nice to be exposed. The minifig will be replaced with the special forces pilot as soon as I will buy the new Kylo Ren's Tie Silencer. Another possibility would be to place, insted of the pilot, the characters who used this ship in the movie, Poe Dameron and Finn in the stormtrooper suit. [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr Thanks for reading, if you want to leave a comment you're welcome! I will listen carefully to every advice and possible improvement you wanna share! p.s.: Down here, instead, you can find a couple of pictures of the toy model I used as reference and the actual Lego set:
  12. Hello everyone, This is my design for the LEGO Rebrick Freighter Wars contest (building your own YT Corellian light freighter). Here's a link to the entry with additional pics: https://www.lego.com/en-us/rebrick/view-entry. The Dashing Banshee is named after the Corellian Banshee bird and upgraded with everything available in terms of speed and concealment. The YT-1300 light freighter was refitted to be used as a courier ship. It is equipped with technology to escape, elude and hide from any pursuer. Sporting no visible weaponry helps to keep a low profile. The model was designed from scratch in LDD and consists of 5173 parts. I went for a smooth design based on the original YT-1300 with some distinctive modifications. Hope you like it!
  13. Alright so I own the set 7965 millennium falcon, and I like it alot, although there is a huge amount of improvement needed to make it more movie accurate. When the new UCS millennium falcon was revealed, i was inspired and started work on my modifications. Inspired by this video This is basically the same design as the 7965 but with larger dimensions. I set out to do the same with my Falcon. As I was building, I realized that the set doesnt have a very good front mandible section, so I started redoing the front using ideas from the UCS design. Here is the WIP so far, would love to hear feedback on what should be changed or fixed. I will be posting updates on this thread. millennium falcon by Marcus Holtznagel, on Flickr millennium falcon cockpit 2 by Marcus Holtznagel, on Flickr millennium falcon mandible 2 by Marcus Holtznagel, on Flickr millennium falcon back overhead view' by Marcus Holtznagel, on Flickr millennium falcon mandible 1 by Marcus Holtznagel, on Flickr millennium falcon front thing by Marcus Holtznagel, on Flickr
  14.  The Sphyrna. My entry for the Rebrick Freighter Wars competition. Piloted by Sif Cahone, 'The Sphyrna' (pron. Suh-fir-nah) Is a Corellian YT1350KL light freighter. Like most of the ships in the YT series, The Sphyrna is prone to being slightly temperamental. Sif is a reluctant smuggler, but with galactic taxation on imports and exports the way they are it's hard to make an honest cred, so she's always on the lookout for low-risk goods to transport. Her co-pilot is 404 (an android) who broke his own programming, Sif found him cheating on the sluggy tables (a gambling game similar to Backgammon). The gunner is known only as Redeye, who Sif rescued from a life of slavery on the planet Cyclopsia Beta. The final member of the crew is the ship's engineer, Ryk Lugfan, who has just helped Sif take receipt of a cargo of highly desirable and much sought after building toys, and being a fan himself, he just had to build one! NB. Syphyrna is the Latin name for Hammerhead sharks Hope you like my entry, but with so many strong entries out there already, I'd be very surprised if I found myself as one of the lucky few. Any comments are gratefully received.
  15. [LDD] [MOC] BrickHeadz Ahsoka Tano

    This is my attempt in making an Ahsoka Tano BrickHeadz. I think the colors and the interesting build for the head would make her a good fit for the BrickHeadz lineup. I only used legal building techniques, but I did use particular colors for bricks that don't yet exist yet, as I'm not planning on building this with physical bricks. I designed it as if it would be an actual set however, so a couple of recolors and new prints would be made for this. The printed pieces will be: - Standard black BrickHeadz eyes (I tried blue like her minifigures have but it doesn't stand out as much in this case) - Printed white facial markings on the 1x4 tile for her cheeks and the 2x4 tile on her forehead - A print for the pink 1x2 sash - Perhaps the printed armbands on the orange 1x2 tiles and the orange diamond pattern on the side of the black 1x2 plates (one diamond per plate) Lego BrickHeadz Ahsoka Tano LDD MOC by Jek Porkchops, on Flickr I especially like how the rows of Akul teeth match the source material, with two being more or less horizontal and four being vertical. The bigger middle one is made from a Nexo Knights shield piece. Lego BrickHeadz Ahsoka Tano LDD MOC by Jek Porkchops, on Flickr I used a yellowish-green 3L lightsaber blade for her shoto, which they should really use for her minifigs as well. Lego BrickHeadz Ahsoka Tano LDD MOC by Jek Porkchops, on Flickr I hope you liked it. Please leave some constructive feedback if you want to.
  16. Introducing the Ultimate Collector's Series AT-ACT! Since it appears that Lego will not be releasing a version of the vehicle, and MOCs have not exactly captured the scale of it, I have decided to take matters into my own hands. Using Cavegod's AT-AT as a base for the build and a final size, I was able to modify certain sections of the MOC to recreate an AT-ACT! As many of you may know, Cavegod's AT-AT is slightly too big for minifigure scale, however math has shown that this size is in fact minifigure scale for an AT-ACT! With a redesigned head, side modifications, and technic legs, this MOC surely takes the original design and reinvents it into a behemoth from the battle of Scarif. The final MOC measures 6,882 bricks in quantity and matches up in size with Cavegod's AT-AT. (High Quality) Pictures are still in development for a finished build of the MOC, but I am still willing to share what I currently have with the community. I have completed a 345 page instruction manual for this MOC, and have prepared to share that with AFOLs. The manual comes in a bundle with the LDD files and a parts list for the MOC. Since the manual is currently 99% done and not final (Just need to put in the pictures), anyone who receives a copy of the bundle will receive a new copy of the manual when the front cover picture is put in. All I ask in return for the bundle is $35 as a contribution toward all of the work that went into the final product. If you are interested in receiving a manual, please contact me at chrdvorak@hotmail.com and I will give you the necessary information to receive your own copy. Here are some screenshots from the manual:
  17. I have been working on this since Rebels first came out, and I've seen a lot of really nice MOCs being built, mostly of the Phantom. But seeing so many talking about building a Ghost to match, I thought I'd show off what I have of mine so far. It is 134 studs long and 109 studs wide. The original intent was to have a full interior, I'm not 100% sure if that plan will make it through to the final design but we shall see. Currently the cockpit, main corridor, loading area, forward gun turret, Zeb&Ezra's room, Kanan's room and Sabine's room are fully fleshed out, I will probably do Hera's room since it was finally shown in season 2. I may upload those pictures in the future. But here is what I have for the exterior so far. I put in the official LEGO Ghost set for scale. Thoughts and opinions are welcome. I look forward to one day hopefully showing off the actualised model.
  18. The YT-1450 model was conceived mainly for hauling large cargo crates by connecting them to the hull between the two forward mandibles. This was a feature not frequently used on earlier models, such as the YT-1300, but there still existed a market demand for these types of ships. The YT-1450 standard model comes equipped with a forward pointing tractor beam projector, placed between the large mandibles. Somewhat unique for this YT model is the side mounted rotating cockpit that gives the pilot a great overview of the ship and the cargo during flight. "The Nadir" is, as many other YT class ships, greatly modified. In particular for getting large cargo shipments out of tough situations. An oversized shield generator has been fitted to one of the mandibles. This gives The Nadir the possibility to shield both the ship and the cargo. To be able to blast through blockades, a double turbo laser battery has replaced one of the docking ports. Almost all of the long-range sensors and communication equipment have been upgraded and switched out during the years. -------------------------------------- This is my entry in the Rebrick FREIGHTER WARS contest. The design is completely my own. It's a mix of the Millennium Falcon and a ship I've been thinking about building for a long time. Hope you like it!
  19. Some fast MOC for some contest (with small hops for big thing) [don't know whay there was some other topic linkt embebeded ... removed]
  20. 75537 Darth Maul will be released in 2018. I'm very excited to get this figure, but he's going to be the standard TPM version. That means he's the same ol' humanoid figure with standard black pieces and limbs. I was kinda hoping he would be the cyborg version from The Clone Wars, so I decided to build one myself in Lego Digital Designer: LDD MOC: Lego Star Wars Buildable Figure Cyborg Darth Maul 8 by Jek Porkchops, on Flickr He is made using mostly parts in existing colours, so I have the option of BrickLinking the parts if I decide to build him (and Maul's head sculpt will be released eventually). Some changes from these pictures will be made if I were to physically make him however: *The upper leg armour will be made using the 2016 Star Wars upper leg armour shells, as they have the perfect shape. They were however unavailable in LDD. Also, both the SW and 8M shells don't yet exist in light bluish grey, so I might have to use black SW shells with custom grey stickers on them, or wait until they do exist. *The real one will have the regular lightsaber blade piece, but it was unavailable in LDD, so I used a substitute in the pictures. *The chest armour does not exist in regular red (without printing), so I could opt for a black version with custom red stickers. *I might make custom stickers of the black and red patterns for the torso piece, the chest and the upper arms. LDD MOC: Lego Star Wars Buildable Figure Cyborg Darth Maul 1 by Jek Porkchops, on Flickr I designed it as if it would be an official Lego set, so I had a lot of 'constraints' to work with because it also had to be sturdy and stable. While I by no means have any idea what the precise constraints are when designing such a set, I think there are are only a few things that would not make it if it were to be finalised: *The lightsaber hilt would probably be of the standard design, but I modified mine to look more like Maul's *The 'ribs' that hold his upper body in place are probably a little too fragile for little kids, but I think they are strong enough to be physically built, and I kept them this way because they are crucial to the overall look. LDD MOC: Lego Star Wars Buildable Figure Cyborg Darth Maul 2 by Jek Porkchops, on Flickr The 4M half beam is where it all began, as it is perfect for the shape of the mechanical detail in front of his stomach. I also like the light bluish grey peeking though, as it too is accurate. I wasn't able to make the 'ribs' round though, so that's something to improve upon. I also think the hip section should look a little more curved around the joints, but I do like the 'crotch' section as is. The hip / upper leg articulation is a little limited, like the K-2SO set, but not a lot. LDD MOC: Lego Star Wars Buildable Figure Cyborg Darth Maul 3 by Jek Porkchops, on Flickr I am very satisfied with the leg design, as it is proportionally accurate and pretty detailed. I have chosen DBG over gunmetal, because while gunmetal might look better, most of the parts used here aren't available in that colour and it looks very matte in the show anyway, not as shiny as gunmetal. Plus, the Lego figure from 2013 has a DBG lower body as well. The lower legs are made with a lot of system parts to create the shaping and the details. They are placed around a Technic axle that runs all the way through. LDD MOC: Lego Star Wars Buildable Figure Cyborg Darth Maul 4 by Jek Porkchops, on Flickr The toes are fully articulated using mini ball joints. The middle piece only has 3 ball joints, so I had to find a different way to add a fourth tow. In the end, this reduces its mobility, but it makes it more stable as the figure can securely lean on at least one toe per foot. Maul is posed similarly, with the hind toe extended back, in many of the official images. LDD MOC: Lego Star Wars Buildable Figure Cyborg Darth Maul 5 by Jek Porkchops, on Flickr The 1x2 plates on the backs of the lower legs represent details as well. The arms are very standard. I used a black bone on the forearm to subtly distinguish the gloves from the mechanical parts, and because Maul's elbows look mostly black. I wish the official Lego figures would return to this type of elbow joint, as the B-joints are very restrictive. LDD MOC: Lego Star Wars Buildable Figure Cyborg Darth Maul 6 by Jek Porkchops, on Flickr His back mostly consists of system elements. Maybe the shoulder blades could use some stickers as well. Sadly, I wasn't able to cover up the Technic pieces and that dreaded blue pin on his lower back, without making him too bulky. LDD MOC: Lego Star Wars Buildable Figure Cyborg Darth Maul Custom Torso by Jek Porkchops, on Flickr His torso is completely custom, because it needed to be 1M longer than a standard torso (underneath the torso ball attachment point), both proportionally and to make more room for the mechanical 'ribs' and the custom hips. I started out with three glatorian necks as the neck and shoulders, and with the torso ball connector. It was very difficult go make it stable enough, as there were a lot of pin connections that had to be doubled up with axle connections, all within a limited space, but the end result is as sturdy as most custom Bionicle 2016 torso's. I have to wait and see before I order any actual parts, as the design can probably be optimised a bit more. Also, I hope the Maul headsculpt will work well with this MOC. I might have to change some parts to dark red after seeing what 75537 looks like. So that's it. I hope you liked it :) Please leave some constructive feedback if you want.

  21. [MOC] Ebon Hawk

    Hello Eurobricks Community, with my first post, I introduce you to my EBON HAWK, a ship that represents for all KOTOR fans, the same emotions as for the Millenium Falcon. A colleague of mine urged me to show you this creation, since I take my inspirations for this ship from the community. I hope it is also an inspiration to.

  22. First of all, its only a joke, I'm fan of 4, 5 and 6 Star Wars Saga. But the first time i Saw the movie, I was a little child and I though, "...why that spaceship looks like a toilet lid?" I try to compete on rebrick with this, but obviously it was not approved... :P LEGO - Star Wars 800€ Toilet Lid by Sérgio Batista, no Flickr LEGO - Star Wars - 800€ toilet lid - U.C.S. by Sérgio Batista, no Flickr
  23. The first MOC I want to present on Eurobricks was an entry for the MOC Olympics contest on www.imperiumdersteine.de (German LUG). The task for the second Round was to build a ship or an iconic scene of the Empire or the First Order. A base of 32 x 32 was the limit. As you can see I decided to build an iconic scene of the Empire. My MOC shows the meeting, which all the high members of the Imperial Military attended and where they debated whether to use the death star immediately or not. The meeting also resulted in Darth Vader briefly strangling Motti with the Force after the latter insubordinately retorted Vader's warning that the abilities of the Death Star were miniscule compared to the Force. I hope you like it. Bye for now Boba ****** my flickr
  24. Are the Star Wars prequels good or bad? Love them or hate them, Star Wars prequels are part of the saga. But why do you love them? Or why do you hate them? Do explain your stances. I find that the prequels had good storylines but the movie was filmed badly. Bad acting, awkward actors, CGI overuse… However, I read the prequel books before watching the movies, and I enjoyed the storyline, particularly Revenge of the Sith. It is clear that good filmmaking, not necessarily good storyline, is important for a successful Star Wars (or any other) film. In my opinion, the prequels had good stories while The Force Awakens did not; however, the Force Awakens had been filmed well while the prequels had not. Thus, The Force Awakens is generally more popular among the Star Wars community than the prequels. But what do you think?
