  1. My Version of a 1:40 minifigure scale T-65 X-Wing. It took a while to bring all the Angles together that make the front Body looks like it should. Unfortunatly i didn't made a better picture of the slim Front Edge of the Wing made of round Slopes. I took the Standard Turbine and turned it 90°. Guess i'm gonna show some more Pictures of the Wing Design in Time...
  2. Hi everyone, this is my first MOC design, a minifig scale UCS style 501st Legion BTL-B Y-Wing Starfighter. The inspiration came after watching the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It was awesome to finally see the BTL-B Y-Wing in 501st colours and I knew instantly I wanted a minifig scale version to go with my other Star Wars minifig scale ships. I've been slowly chipping away at this over the last few months, and I’ve spent a lot of time finessing the shape, proportions, colouring and details to make this design as accurate as possible. I think I have found a good balance of aesthetics, ease of construction and strength, as the design is very robust and "swooshable" for a model this big. It is approximately 1800-2000 pieces (need to update the Studio model before I know for sure), 61cm long, 28cm wide and 9cm high. To keep the proportions and look of the BTL-B Y-Wing correct, the cockpit is built with removable seats to allow minifigs to be placed for display if desired, and I opted to only allow the head of an astromech droid to be added for the same reason. I've made sure to add all of the weapon detailing, including an opening bomb bay with proton bombs, and have also added folding landing gear. I’m finishing off the instructions now and should hopefully have them done in a few weeks. I'll post the link on here once they are complete. Thanks for looking! I hope you like the design and happy to hear any feedback :)

    Faction: Clan Eldar (CE)

    "Brothers and Sisters; "We're done hiding. "Some say the galaxy doesn't need us any more; that the Empire did everyone a favour with its conquest of Mandalore. They say that a warrior culture has no place in a galaxy that's had enough of war. "But I say this; there will always be a place among the stars for those who are willing to fight for it. Those who aren't prepared to let someone else deny their right to exist. "So if you've got the guts to wear the armour, I say you've earned the right to be a Mandalorian. It doesn't matter who you are; where you came from; born or made. If you're willing to stand against the storm with your head held high, Clan Eldar will stand beside you." Faction: Clan Eldar (Mandalorian Remnant) Faction Leader: @Ross Fisher Faction Lieutenants: @n1majneb Members: @Merc4Hire, @SodorBricks, @Lamborghini Waffle Sauce, @jhaelego, @JShortForJay, @PandaQuil, @Moppo, @Miscellanabuilds, @JetBricks Studios, @_Josh_, @Sharkbrix, @Scorch93, @Professor Thaum Headquarters/Capital: Mandalore (O7) Planets: Mandalore (O7), Lantilles, Gizer, Azure (P8), Kashyyyk (P9), Gigor, Ziost (R4), Atchorb, Bonadan, Kir (S3) Grid squares: P8, S3 NPCs: Duchess Val Eldar, Rusty Eldar Description During the Great Purge, many Mandalorian families and clans were entirely wiped out. Some members of Clan Eldar were fortunate enough to escape by fleeing their homes - a hard act for any Mandalorian. These disparate groups managed to keep in touch and, now that the Empire has fallen, are tentatively making contact again. Soldiers Clan Eldar consisted of Mandalorian warriors that donned Mandalorian armour with black, dark green, and orange color. Nonetheless, Members of Clan Eldar, and their allies, wear a wide range of different-coloured armour, and some wear no armour at all. Times have not been kind to the Clan, and many new members still need to earn their armour. Clan Eldar does not expect its members to follow The Way. Removal of your helmet does not make you any less Mandalorian. Giving up does.
  4. I love the look of the Mandalorian on his speeder bike, as showcased in the Season 2 key art: This speeder appears in the new set "Trouble on Tatooine" (75299), and is a reasonably decent approximation considering it has to be sturdy and hold up to play. There are a few shaping inaccuracies, but that's par for the course. For reference, here's the official LEGO vehicle with no tweaks other than a hastily cobbled-together stand (and my unorthodox placement of the cape, with the left arm threading one of the neck holes to hold it at the desired display angle): The major downside, as with most LEGO speeders, is the scale! While it has some nice detail, it's simply much too large in comparison to the minifigure. The "foot pedals" (at least, that's what I presume the struts with the dark orange brackets are meant to be) are a case in point -- they're huge relative to the minifig, and nowhere near Mando's feet! So, despite the inevitability of loosing some greebling opportunities, I decided to take a stab at a scaled-down speeder bike for Mando to ride that would still successfully evoke the vehicle from the show. I also set myself the challenge of only using parts from 75299! Here's what I came up with: It's reasonably sturdy, fits both Grogu and Mando's Amban phase-pulse blaster, and the nose fortuitously lies at the correct angle. This design also allows Mando to sit a little more upright in his seat! But it's still not quite where I wanted it to be, so I did one final tweak with a few additional bars with clips, some swapped out colors, and a smooth base: Mando can now lean forward slightly as he does on the key art, which allows his cape to be properly affixed without getting crimped up. His hands still can't properly "grab" the handlebars, but it's close enough for my purposes. I'm sure I'm not the only person who has undertaken this challenge, so I'll probably be inspired to revisit this build in the future. For now, though, this makes me happy!

    [U13 - Daluuj - TT] The Yularen

    *Your entry has earned 3 XP* This is Gozanti Cruiser Yularen. We're in position. Starting Operation: Shutdown. IGV-55 surveillance vessel (Gozanti-class) With the defeat at Endor and Jakku, the Empire learned that they are not untouchable. So a small group of loyalists decided to act, so that something like this never happens again. They went befor the Triumvirs and laid out their plans: The establishment of Safe Worlds. Planets of little significance for the galaxy, but which allow the Empire to regroup and reorganize in the event of a overwhelming defeat. The gozanti cruiser IVG 555 Survallince-class „The Yularen“ was send to the backwater planet of Daluuj. A muddy planet in the Outer Rim. The mission: to lock down the system. Every single transmission, every message, imperial and non-imperial, has to go through the watchful eyes of the ISB. So that the New Republic can still believe that Daluuj is still a planet of no interest But under the surface is more. Much more. ---------- Just a small MOC. I build the Gozanti in one day. There you see how fast of a builder I am. (pretty, pretty fast). I always liked the look of the Gozanti. But I builded the MOC also to test my photoshop skills.
  6. Hey everyone, today I bring you my take on a minifig scale LAAT/i or Republic Gunship. Firstly, this thing is complicated... I started working on this early last year, but took a break from it because trying to figure out how to translate the complex shape of this thing was driving my crazy. While there are a lot of really nice gunships out there, I really wanted to see if I could match the narrow profile of the front of the ship, as well as get the flare out to the back that it has. Needless to say, accomplishing that in Lego is not easy, but I think I came up with a decent solution. The entire upper part of the gunship actually tapers from 6 studs wide in the back, down to 4 in the front. The "floor" of the gunship also tapers, which is one of the most common things people seem to avoid in other MOCs, probably because it's a major pain to do and it messes with the door alignment. The doors utilize technic fig hands and mixel joints to achieve the sloping from the front to back of the gunship. The doors were a real challenge due to the angles, and my first go at it didn't have enough head room to allow for a fig to stand inside, so I had to take another go at it, but this version seems to hold up. As usual a pic with my Delta-7B for scale. And some other colour variants. I've also done some test building to make sure that this thing actually works, I was worried that with all the angles it would be extremely brittle, but it holds together better then I thought it would. Inspiration notes: Under wing supports as well as some frontal structure inspired by Caleb Ricks. Front nose roundness inspired by Maelven. Engine build inspired by Chef Aslopert. Engine cones inspired by Kit Bricksto. Flood/Search lights inspired by David Buchholz.
  7. *Your entry has earned 30 XP* “The jedi were the guardians of peace in the galaxy. Oh, how they have fallen… I was alive back then, albeit a very young man, I understood the situation quite well. I knew where I stood. I’ve always known. People say you should be open to new ideas. Well, I was, I saw their point of view, and I said: to hell with it. … I once spoke to the great emperor you know, on multiple occasions. Him and I, we came from the same place, in thought as well. You know, the jedi were almost wiped out in the first battle of geonosis. I wish they had been, would have saved the world all this chaos…” (Death trooper CDR DT-R65 to droid unit IG-828 of the imperial Triumvirate) More pictures on flickr, and timelapse on my YouTube channel
  8. *Your entry has earned 14 XP* Bravura squad has once again been dispatched, this time to Ambria, on the search for Moff Pyerce’s forces. Coda, Dolore and Ferroce along with ISB had approached a settlement north of the LZ. DT-R65 and IG-828 explored the natural formations... DT-R65, IG-828 and specialists from the ISB roamed the horizon on an infantry support platform, repurposed for imperial use as a transport. A cloud of steam rises a wall ahead of them. IG-828 turns toward DT-R65. He nodds, and directs the speeder towards the steam. A white wall lay before them. “This could be a vent, from a generator, Could also be a natural vent.” says DT-R65. “We should go down there.” says one of the specialists. DT-R65 takes off his helmet, takes a knee in the barron and hot sand. He feels its coarseness between his fingers. The area around the steam has an abundance of minerals from the core. DT-R65: “I used to work in places like this… I’ll go down. IG-828 will lower me down with his grappling hook.” He puts on his helmet and IG-828 hands him the hook. The temperature rises as DT.R65 descends. “We’re receiving a transmission from headquarters.” says the specialist to IG-828. IG turns toward him, sharply as if being interrupted. The trooper takes a step back, slightly unsettled by this inhuman looking droid. “We are to return to the Crescendo for a new briefing. Bravura has established a base near the settlement, north-west of our position.” The droid turns back towards the steam, and DT-R65 cannot be seen because of it. “[We will finish our mission here.]” replies the IG unit. DT-R65 turns on his thermal scan, but it’s no use, everything is affected by the temperature of the steam. He turns his head to take a look behind him. He catches a glimpse of old mining equipment. 8 lights are pointed towards him, but they are moving towards him. He turns off the thermal view… “Dank farrik…” Infantry support platform designed by 8th_brother_brick. Modified by myself to fit an imperial theme.
  9. 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
  10. *Your entry has earned 3 XP* Sir, we detected a small group of fighters in the orbit of Odik II. It seems that they are Pyerce´s ships. What are your orders, Sir? Shall I send a squad to interfere? No, our fleet is to far away to get there in time. But it is an excellent opportunity to test the new TIE Droid Fighter. Inform Admiral Val, she will take care of the traitors. Yes, Sir! Just a small MOC. I always wanted to build a TIE Droid fighter and i love the Versus-Sets from 2003. So the best chance to get both done. Greetings Mac

    [MOC] 1400mm X-wing

    Today I started a new model. I'll build it mainly using light bluish grey Technic parts. Here's a first sketch to plan Bricklink order:
  12. This has been my first LEGO MOC, I designed this on BrickLink Stud.io after Porsche collaborated with Star Wars to make their own spaceship. When I first saw their design I instantly fell in love with it, and I thought I might just make that in LEGO. Thanks to everyone for taking a look. Pictures
  13. Hello everyone! I would like to apologize if it is not allowed to show our lego’s collection… it is considered as spam may be? Sorry in this case. It includes MOCs (LDD0xx), MODs (xxxx+LDD0xx), Lepin figures ("-F" from "false")... from all the episode films (I-IX), with referenced names from Wookieepedia (https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Main_Page). This videos had already existed, but today they have been updated because of the Chistmas adquisitions. The LDD files are available if someone wants any of them, feel free to improve them. I hope you like it!

    [MOC] Blacktron LASER THRUST

    On Flickr a little bird (...or panda) whispered to my ear that the people on Eurobricks would really like my stuff so here I am! This is my Blacktron Razor Crest. It goes by Laser Thrust and features no original Star Wars pieces so it can be on Lego Ideas. If you like my ship, you could go to Ideas and support it, that would be nice!!! I really have shrunken the pics as far as I could but yeah, have a look at flickr.com/photos/ygreklego - there you'll find more!!
  17. I designed the UCS Clone Wars Y-wing Starfighter a couple of months ago, and I thought I'd share some images of it here. They are all over 1860 pieces, so pretty close to the Original Trilogy UCS Y-wing we got back in 2018. This starfighter has room for 2 pilots: One in the front, and another as a gunner in the bubble turrent. The windscreen piece behind the bubble turrent can also easily come off to reveal a small space that you can fit a crate in. And there is room for an astromech droid as well. All you have to do is remove the curved tiles which are attached in by one stud each. 39632 by ice chips, on Flickr 39632 3 by ice chips, on Flickr 39632 2 by ice chips, on Flickr 39632 4 by ice chips, on Flickr Heres some more close-up pictures. cover by ice chips, on Flickr Clone Wars Y-wing 1_5 by ice chips, on Flickr I also designed this model to be compatible with the 2018 UCS Y-wing stand. So it will fit perfectly on that stand. However, this model does need either 2 rubber bands or 2 thin threads. If you look at the 4 long panels on each of the engines, you will notice that there is a 1x1 studded area open. That is where you have to put a white or clear rubber band so that those 4 panels can stay together and not be flimsy. Alternatively, tying a thin thread around that 1x1 studded area and covering it up with some 1x1 tiles would work as well. I couldn't find any other way to connect those parts 'lego pieces wise'. I did make instructions as well at https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-55730/starwarsfan66/y-wing-starfighter-yellow-gold-leader-variant/#details Let me know what you all think of this moc!
  18. Hello, so this is my first time posting. I made a digital moc of the Separatist Shuttle (from the clone wars show) and the Type-B Separatist Shuttle (from the clone wars citadel arc) a while ago, and I thought I'd post them here. I'm curious as to what you all might have to say. It certainly took a long time to get the design as best as I could. Separatist Transport Shuttle normal by ice chips, on Flickr backside1_2 by ice chips, on Flickr interior1 by ice chips, on Flickr interior2 by ice chips, on Flickr backside1 by ice chips, on Flickr Separatist Sheathipede Class Type-B Shuttle droid squad1_2 by ice chips, on Flickr droid squad1 by ice chips, on Flickr side angle1 by ice chips, on Flickr cargo1 by ice chips, on Flickr I believe this is how I am supposed to embed images. I have a lot more images but I think there is a limit to how much I can put here. I did also make instructions for both of these models, but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post those here. You can find them on rebrickable if you search for the separatist shuttle. Or you can also PM me for a link as well. I haven't really seen many people do mocs for these separatist shuttles; they don't get enough love. We've seen them in plenty of clone wars episodes, and I just love the design of the shuttle and gray-dark blue color scheme. What are your thoughts on my design?
  19. What are some of your unpopular or niche opinions related to LSW? I'll start off with a few: - The 2009 AT-OT/dropship set is overrated - it's not a bad set but hasn't aged nearly as well as other sets from around that time, and parts of the AT-OT look like a MOC rather than a collectors' set. It could definitely use a remake. - I don't know why Lego makes Obi-Wan ginger - in 2005 they had less colours to choose from so it made more sense, but now it seems odd that every prequel Obi-Wan is ginger and Anakin is either dark or normal brown when they have a very similar hair colour in the film and honestly reddish brown would probably work for both. Similarly, I'm not sure why Luke's hair changes from tan to dark tan depending on which set he's in when the darker colour is clearly more accurate. - Assault on Hoth would be a good set if it were just the main gate, maybe with a Tauntaun bay and a few other parts for £90. - Midi-scale sets were a real missed opportunity and should make a comeback with figures to add more value. - More sets should include obscure characters - when I was a kid there were a lot of obscure characters in action figure form and I'd love to see more in Lego sets - the Neimodian warrior and Colonel Cracken from 2014 were great inclusions and I'd love to see a D2C Jabba's palace with some obscure characters in that. - In addition to that, a lot of people think Lego won't make another Slave Leia or Oola figure, but I think this is possible but probably only in a D2C barge or palace. Add your's below!
  20. Hi, after long years of only reading the site, I joined in 2018 and finally I would like to spend some words about me. My first set was 645 Milk float and trailer. The first phase took some years, my brother and me we had quite many sets until 1978 or so inlcuding the first year technic sets and some small Classic Space sets I all remember fondly. New start after my Dark Ages was 6514 Trail Ranger in 1996. I spent one hour building many different car versions from this one box - which was quite a fun with only 32 pieces. With the restart the focus was on 9V trains, City and Technic, 8868 e.g. - one favorite one. Around 2000 I also bought my first StarWars set - 7140 X-Wing. Then I started with collecting the alien minfigures from Lego Star Wars. Of course it did not stop me and nowadays I have all Star Wars minifigures you can see on Bricklink and some more. In 2018 the Lego Star Wars Minilands closed and I decided to build my own one. This year I built Cavegod's Sandcrawler, KitBricksto's Tantive IV and Brickvault's Ghost, the parts for the executor are also prepared. Many other plans are set up of which I luckily some need to do on my own. On Eurobricks I especially like the friendly way of conversations and discussions with many well experienced builders and fans from all over the world.
  21. There’s a steppe in Southern Russia that boasts a particularly rare falcon. Through some sort of genetic mutation of the red-footed falcon, once every 1,000 years, a gray-footed falcon is born. But it can’t reproduce, so this one of a kind falcon will die out at the end of the bird’s lifespan of ~14 years. However, one of the cool things about this once a millenary bird is its nest. Let’s get a closer look. See, unlike it’s red-footed brethren, this falcon’s nest is...hang on, what’s that? Huh, well that’s actually more interesting than the bird. Let’s talk about that instead. Name: Millennium Falcon Microfighter Set Number: 75295 Pieces: 101 Price: $9.99 | £8.99 | 9.99€ Minifigs: 1 Theme: Cynical Scrutiny. Oh, of the set? Star Wars. Having extracted this from the falcon’s nest, let’s check out a ship from this 8th Series of Microfighters. Trivia Question: can anyone name every ship in a single series of these microfighters? You cannot, because I cannot. Anyway, since I’m writing four of these reviews (check back in the next three days), I’ll not mention anything more about the box design on this one, other than to say there’s a TIE fighter below the Falcon that Han seems unaware of. Watch out Han! It’s literally shooting at you! I guess he survived. Or this is before he’s blown up. The thing to note about this is the two sets at the bottom. One of them is cool and kinda original. The other one is this set. More on that later. Here’s what you get in the box. And to answer your question, Terry, no, these bags still aren’t edible. I know, bud, I know. And it’s Han. Default Han, as I’ll call him. He’s appeared in the second LEGO Death Star (no, not Death Star II), and the bad, small Mos Eisley Cantina, and the good, large Mos Eisley Cantina. And now this. I’m not sure anyone’s collection is really hurting for a Han Solo these days. Sometimes I sneeze and a Han Solo comes out. Here is an important step - the first one! No going back now. Not when you use glue as I do. Makes a good sealer and a mid-build snack. And now the rest of the owl. Falcon. Whatever bird you want. It’s, I mean, it’s a small Millennium Falcon. LEGO didn’t exactly reinvent the wheel here. The sides are actually pretty snazzy, if you’re into sides. I’m more of a vertices guy myself. Still, one has to appreciate the detailing here, even if a good 80% of it is imagination. Atop the bird, there’s two of these little disc launchers. At least they’re not flick-fires, am I right? Are we still making fun of flick-fires? Pros and cons of these launchers - easy to shoot, but also easy to loose the disc. Also, if, for instance, you shoot it across your room where you left a half-eaten pepperoni pizza, make sure you retrieve it. Otherwise you might be in the doctor’s office trying to explain that you were writing a review for a LEGO Millennium Falcon microfighter, and that’s 4 whole words you’re going to now have to explain to her. They said the disc would pass naturally, and that’s good for my health insurance coverage. Or lack of it. Heyo, single-payer health care! Anyway, under this ship, you’ve got these smooth roundboys. Have you ever put these on an Air Hockey table? It’s like a challenge mode. Also - Air Hockey tables are much better at swallowing LEGO than I am. I’m actually a fan of these hinged blue parts. Did you know this was actually a function of the Falcon in the movies? It’s for aerodynamics when in planets’ atmospheres. It was only shown off once, in the 1980 comic Star Wars 28: Cavern of the Crawling Death, when Han and Chewbacca are forced to land on Orleon. See, I’m educational, too! Now, let’s get into the meat and potatoes, which, coincidentally, are very easy to cut thanks to Urban Farmer Wüsthof Knives! 7-piece set now available from Williams Sonoma! I don’t really...get the point of microfighters. That’s maybe a bit of a broad statement, because LEGO sets don’t necessarily have a point so much as they’re a toy or a hobby. But at least there’s usually a selling point. These days, it’s boiled down to either minifigs or a cool set. LEGO Piano? Fun build. LEGO Harry Potter sets? All about those Hogwarts kids. So for a Microfighter Millennium Falcon, not only a set that’s come out twice before, but a set that includes one of the more generic Star Wars minifigs, it feels like they had to some sort of queue. “There must be two Microfighters in each line, so I guess we’ll go with the Falcon again.” Not to mention it’s basically the same build. There’s a few other Star Wars sets that have forced me to ask this question, like the Landspeeder situation or Snowspeeder recolor - what’s the point? It’s even more exacerbated with a $10 set like a Microfighter. You can generally make a case for other Microfighters, mainly for the minifig, but for a common Han Solo? Eh. I’m not saying being a LEGO designer is simple. But from a consumer standpoint, it seems lazy to rehash a set once every three years, especially a set that can be essentially described as a stocking stuffer. But maybe that’s why it can be so lazy, because it’s something my grandma grabs for me because she knows I like LEGO and Star Wars, and she doesn’t want to spend $30 on a real set. So I’m giving this set a 1/5. It brings nothing new to the table, and I can’t see anyone being particularly jazzed about getting their hands on this set. That’s strikes me as a failure. But what do you guys think? Are you a fan of this Millennium Falcon microfighter? Or an inexpensive Han Solo figure? How do you feel about releasing what is basically the same set every three years? Let me know below, and make sure you vote on the poll! And big thanks to LEGO for providing me with a copy of this set, and Eurobricks for being such a great community. JackJonespaw out, RAAAAAAAAAAA!
  22. Hello! Here I want to present you my MOD from the Lego 75318 The Child set. More photos on Flickr album
  23. ...when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there; The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of LEGO Star Wars Sets danced in their heads; My MOC shows a typical scene that happened every year - at least in my childhood. It is often said: "The greatest pleasure lies in the anticipation", which was also true for me. Usually I wished for one of the bigger starships from LEGO Star Wars for Christmas, like a Millenium Falcon, spent weeks dreaming of getting this set as a gift and how I would build it with my sister in our living room. P.S.: Can you spot all the easter eggs?

  24. Imperial Communique 639184.88e—CLASSIFIED Code: Endless Sun Report No: O10-029 Ambria [LSM-036] to [LSM-663] and [GA-004] High Command Regarding Project: Eclipse & LUXUM As stated in my last report: We found some remarkable crystals near Lake Natth. The Locals call them LUXUM. Powerful crystals, much stronger than we first thought. The results of first experiments look very promising. It seems they are created by immense pressure, lasting for up to hundred years. In accordance with your orders: we've occupied the affected area. Lake Naath and its surrounding land is now under Imperial Jurisdiction. Imperial Code 94364. The "redistribution" of its residents and the establishment of labor camps are in full swing. Camp 1 and 3 to 5 are set up and ready for use. Camp 2 and 6 should be ready by the next rotation. But I have to tell you, Ambria is far more hostile than we first tought. More and more troopers lose their lives to the dangerous fauna. And there is something else. The workers are talking about a strange feeling they get, when they are near Lake Natth. Like if something is watching them. Some evem refuse to continue working. I ordered immediate action against such behavior. I don't know if and how this reduce the efficient of operation. We have already lost precious time. But I assure you, sir, we will be successful. This operation is far too important to fail. Long live the Triumvirate.

  25. I started my MOC year 2018 by making the cheapest TIE craft in the Imperial fleet, and now I end this year by making the most expensive one. The TIE Defender only recently made it into canon, but back in 1994 when it debuted in Lucas Arts' TIE Fighter game, it was a beast. Faster than an A-Wing, tougher than a B-Wing and more manouverable than the Interceptor, the Defender does all a starfighter does, just better*. Now I have it in LEGO form... which was pretty interesting to get to. Because since there is no true canon representation of the ship except for Rebels... which I'll get to in short... I could give myself some leeway when it comes to accuracy and give it the coolest shape I could think of while still preserving core features. The Defender as seen in Rebels has slightly different shape: Much like... well, almost everything, Rebels took a nice design and changed it... for reasons unknown. Let's just say I am not a fan of this rear-heavy design, nor do I like the tall-neck ISDs or featureless toy-looking basic T/F line fighters. Not to mention if I went with this one it would tip forward because the center of mass is further to the front than the furthest flat piece of the wings. Instead I based my design having this one in mind: The only real alteration I did was making top guns a bit different to distinguish them - after all these are supposed to be ion cannons, and added visible missile launchers in a place which made at least some logical chance - on the panel centers. Anyway no matter which design you pick, the Defender is an odd one. The ball is just tacked on to a triple support base, panels are bent in wrong way and it is always going to look top heavy because, well, it is. Engines were contested point between me and BrickVault. We tried several solutions, but the final fight was between these two: I still believe the Defender, being THAT FAST should have large, prominent engines, but eventually we picked a less-in-your-face design as seen on top, while still making more sense than what Rebels did with theirs. Structurally this design perhaps the toughest one of all the ships to date, except maybe the Bomber. But it is hard to compare something to the Twin Flying Brick, This is the first TIE in my line which has an interior, thanks to Inthert for inspiration! It fits any kind of TIE pilot and altough you need to remove the quarter dome pieces to put him there, they are lightly attached on one stud so this is super easy. Tell me what you think! This build, as usual this year, is available through http://brickvault/toys as instructions, which you can get to support us! *When it comes to OP starfighters, the Defender is the top dog - with sole exception of the Missile Boat which is as ridiculous compared to the T/D as the T/D is to anything else. To put it shortly, Missile Boat is almost twice as fast, holds enemy ships in place with tractor beams and carries ten times the ordnance count of what B-Wing carries. And the MB is pretty small ship.
