  2. 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.
  3. Hello there! Here is my second iteration of one of my favorite ships of Star Wars -- the Delta-7 Aethersprite Delta-7 Jedi Starfighter. @khatmorg & @atlas_er are big influences on this design -- especially the cockpit area of @khatmorg's, and the wings by @atlas_er. Biggest difference in mine is the overall length; it's shorter by two studs (which I think is more accurate). Making it a little smaller in comparison, but still has a lot of detail. Overall I'm really happy with how it came out. I tried my best to eliminate all gaps, and make it smooth as possible. I've very proud of the green accent on the back wings, and how I was able to keep the front wing/hood area smooth. The only thing I'm bummed about is that I couldn't squeeze in rear landing gear, but I love how the smooth underside came out. And the little bit of stickering on the back section to better convey the curve of the green. It's quite sturdy, but it does have some weakish points in the design. Thanks for checking it out!

  6. This is the Endar Spire from the beginning of KOTOR (Knights of the Old Republic) that I designed. It is quite an iconic ship and it's an absolutely massive model at 6,000 pieces. This was probably my longest project that I've ever worked on. The only one that comes close to this in terms of the 'time it took to design' would be the C-9979 Landing Craft which was around 5000 pieces. So this model is actually a lot more structurally sturdy than one might think. There is a massive technic "skeleton" that is reinforced by a lot more technic, bricks, plates, inverted slopes, etc. And the stands help to keep the model up and distribute the weight of this massive beast. The head itself acts as a frontal stand. It aligns perfectly on the ground with the other 2 stands which ensures that it stays nice and sturdy on display. endar spire2 by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr endar spire image taking by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr endar spire image taking_2 by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr endar spire_8 by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr endar spire_6 by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr endar spire_5 by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr endar spire (white) by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr endar spire (white - orange) by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr The interior: There are 5 "rooms" in this hammerhead cruiser. The largest room is in the back. This is where you first wake up in the KOTOR game and meet Trask Ulgo. The second room is kind of like a bridge of the cruiser - lots of chairs for computers. The third room is the escape pod entry, where there are 3 escape pod entrances. The fourth room is a cargo room/hallway. The fifth and smallest room is another smaller cargo bay. It is also possible to remove the sides walls as seen in one of the images. And color swapping is quite easy as well. I made 2 versions. A light-bluish gray one and a white one. I also did some color variations like orange, yellow, and dark blue just to see what they would look like. Here is a link for the instructions and parts list if anyone was curious: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-89244/RendiliBricks/endar-spire/#details Let me know what you all think!

    Modified TIE Fighter MOC

    I've made a lot of special modifications myself. Hi, this is my first real post here. Let me know what I'm doing wrong! I built @Jerac's TIE Fighter a couple years ago, and I've been tinkering with it off and on ever since. This was the first MOC I bought and built, and I remain very impressed by the strength, elegance, and ingenuity of the design. I've seen a lot of TIE MOCs since, and Jerac's is probably still my favourite. I wanted to say that clearly at the start, before getting into the nit-picking! Here's what I changed: Wing Gaps I always found the holes in the wings very distracting. They're easy enough to fill with 1x4 tiles, if you remove a plate from the base of the horizontal spokes. The result not only looks better, but holds the spokes in place more securely. I added 1x1 plates to the top and bottom corners to fill another gap. Canopy/Gun Mount I was also dissatisfied with the canopy/guns/controls assembly, which is a precarious stack of rods and clips. It's fiddly and fragile, and leaves extraneous T-pieces sticking out the front. Why did Jerac build it this way? I think because the cockpit's top, front and bottom dishes wrap around the quarter domes and they need to fit snugly to approximate a sphere, so the space available to mount the canopy and guns is incredibly tight. My solution was to mount the canopy on old robot arms. They're the right length, and they have a squared off neck where I've attached the gun mounts, which helps hold the guns in position (at least on 1 axis). Top Hatch Mount The top hatch in Jerac's model sits noticeably to the rear of centre. It's a bit tricky to fix because the hatch mount connects to the top of the central hexagon, which also needs to be positioned precisely. I had to rework my initial solution when I redid the rear - more on that below. Wing Construction I love Jerac's smooth stacked-brick wings, but they give the impression of subtle stripes running parallel to the wings edges, like concentric hexagons, whereas the real TIEs have prominent ridges perpendicular to the edges. It occurred to me that I could suggest these by using tall 1x1 bricks instead of long bricks. Stacked 1x1s do not make a strong wall, but because the hub/spokes/rim design is so secure, the finished wings are plenty solid. The main drawback of this design is that light can shine through the tall seams when you look straight on, lessening the sense of solidity. But I find the overall effect delightful. I used 1x8 tiles for all the spokes, to clear some extraneous studs off the wings. Interior I spent a lot of time trying to mimic the cockpit's triangular panels in some way, but couldn't find a solution at this scale. So I went for a looser interpretation, inspired by the beautiful Inthert version and Jerac's TIE Defender. The interior space in this model is very limited (even the Defender has an extra stud of depth) but I was able to include a lot of detail. I also made space for the newer, oversized TIE pilot helmets. I borrowed the control design from the Bricks Feeder/Inthert interior. I'm disappointed that LEGO has never printed the TIE Fighter targeting display. I may print my own sticker for that. The top hatch isn't functional, but it does need to swing up for cockpit access, so I added some simple details underneath. The scale is way off, but I like the way the 1x2 grills evoke the skylight pattern on the hatch. Cockpit Side Greebling I wanted to include the little dark grey bow ties on either side of the canopy. This was challenging for a few reasons: They should be centred, which means holding a small piece in the middle of a 2-stud space and minimizing the gaps around it. Everything should be curved to match the quarter domes. I also wanted to accommodate interior detailing in this space. Finally, there's an identical pattern in the rear, around the engines. These areas should look similar in front and back (see below). I'm quite satisfied with this solution: Wing Spars The arms (technically "spars") attaching the cockpit to the wings are full of Lego-unfriendly details: cylinders, thin rings and fins, and the notched plates next to the cockpit that slope in like 4 directions at once. Their diameter is small and they need to be strong. I did my best to imitate the details while sticking with Jerac's sturdy plate-based design. I swapped the 1x4 brackets for 1x2s to clear a couple studs off the front. There are more brackets inside to add strength and attach interior details. I tried a lot of different pieces for the bent T detail next to the wings. Pneumatic t-pieces seemed to best capture the shape. I'm dissatisfied with basically every part of these arms, but I haven't seen other versions at this scale that I prefer. Most of the key details are at least present, although crudely represented. Rear The central rear ring is the last piece of the original that I altered (so far). I'd done earlier revisions of the engines and hatch mount that retained the quarter ring tiles. I appreciate their smoothness even though they're too flat, and sink the central hexagon behind a circular cutout. I finally noticed that the outer diameter of this ring should match the top hatch and front canopy – it should be 5 studs (scaled to the overall model) or 6 (matching the canopy and hatch). That pushed me to build a custom ring with the key features of: 6 stud diameter Outer cone shape Inner inverted cone, and Prominent central hexagon with slightly recessed black interior. Drawbacks: I couldn't find a way to keep the red engine centers with this design I also couldn't include the bump on the top of the cone. The top hatch sits ~1mm too far forward (but closer to centre than the original) The outer diameter is 6 studs, but only at the points where the handlebars attach The handlebars aren't angled quite right, so the clips that form the ring are a bit skewed The inner inverted cone is too deep And of course this segmented design is not as smooth as the rest of the model. In spite of all that, I think the shapes are quite accurate for this scale, and I'm satisfied with the result. A Note on Scale The cockpit is about 9 studs tall, including the top hatch and bottom dish. At that scale the front canopy, top hatch and rear cone should all be 5 studs in diameter. It would be interesting to see a TIE MOC scaled up to fit the 6x6 dish – a cockpit diameter of ~11 studs. Conclusion I've changed most of the pieces and the details in this model, without changing much about the structure or general appearance. I'm still tinkering with it. I've got some ideas to rework the wings and spars, but that's quite a big project. Some of these modifications are a matter of taste, but I'm quite pleased with the results. I'm interested to hear others' opinions. Credits In addition to Jerac, I appreciated and drew inspiration from: Inthert and Bricks Feeder: Beautiful interiors Koen Zwanenburg: Clever cockpit side details, more accurate shape of the wing hubs (although I stuck with Jerac's for now) Fuku Saku: Nice front and back cockpit details. The rear cone piece is clean and accurate, but loses the center details. Force of Bricks: Interesting arm details and rear shape. If I do a more thorough redesign I'll likely borrow a lot from this model. Pasq67: Impressive details at a smaller scale. Cereal Eating Builder: Incredible accuracy at a much larger scale. Reference Photos The EFX prop replica seems to be the most accurate model available. This gallery is my main resource. For proportions I referred to this blueprint from the Tie Fighter Owners' Workshop Manual Some pictures of original props here A discussion of TIE Fighter scale
  9. 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 :)
  10. LEGO did a great job in re-releasing R2-D2 as 75308, but there are still some parts not the same as the real one. So I've made the followings: - changed the outlook of the leg's fuel cells - flushed the third leg outlet panels (front and rear) by 1 plate - completed third leg outlet panels by adding the left and right sides - switched the position of the buttons and pillars of the legs (same as the 2012 version) - changed the outlook of the middle exhaust vents - moved the tools compartments further outward and made it taller - filled the gap between the head and the body - more SNOT outlook - push-to-open the lightsaber cover 195 extra pieces are required. Spare parts are also needed, about 80 original pieces will be left. Instruction available at https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-85457 Happy building. Have fun and enjoy!
  11. This is the ARC-170 Starfighter - it's a massive starfighter, both the moc itself and in-universe. I first made the regular version as seen in Revenge of the Sith, and then later I color swapped it to the Muunilinst 10 colors (I did dark blue and regular blue for that). I also color-swapped the regular version to a bunch of different variants just to see what they would look like. The dark blue and yellow looked the best to me. arc170 starfighter by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr arc170 starfighter_2 by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr image taking_2 by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr Muunilinst 10 (dark blue) muunilist arc170 starfighter by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr Muunilinst 10 (blue) UntitledModel by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr These are the 11 other color swaps I did on the regular ARC-170: https://bricksafe.com/pages/starwarsfan66/arc-170-starfighter-color-variants I didn't want to upload a bunch of unnecessary pictures here. But anyway, the regular ARC-170 ended up being 2102 pieces (including the stand) and the Muunlinst version was 2113 pieces (including the stand). In terms of stability, it is excellent in my opinion. The body of the ship itself is very securely packed with technic, bricks, and plates. And the main wings and 4 smaller wings are all brick-built (with technic liftarms). Those 4 smaller wings can easily "close up" for when the ARC-170 isn't in battle. The larger 2 wings are attached quite securely to the body of the model, but I included 2 small support stands at the ends of each wing just because the wingspan is so large. Though I am pretty confident that the supports will not be needed - of course, the wings will droop a little bit without them just because of their sheer weight. For my C-9979 Landing Craft, I included stands to go underneath each of the 4 wings, but after someone built it in real-life, they told me they didn't even need the stands. By default, I made the instructions to sit on the stand, but I did make an option for landing gear as well. The stand is very simple and tucks into a 4x6 hole on the underside of the model. There are 2 modules of landing gears (one for the front and one for the middle). The front module easily attaches to the front of the ARC-170 and the middle one goes into that 4x6 hole. So in order to display the ARC-170 with landing gear, the stand will need to be taken off. Also, I know that the large wings of ARC-170 are supposed to be light gray underneath the spot where the smaller wings go, but for the regular version, I liked the look better when it was all white. But it is just a simple color swap from white technic liftarms to light-bluish gray technic liftarms to get that accuracy. I used the light-bluish gray on the Muunilinst version though. I'll include a link for the instructions / parts list if anyone wanted to take a look. It will also have some more images of the starfighter as well. Regular ARC-170: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-88927/RendiliBricks/arc-170-starfighter/#details Muunilinst 10 ARC-170: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-88929/RendiliBricks/muunilinst-10-arc-170-starfighter/#details Let me know what you all think!
  12. Hello there It's been an awfull long time since I posted something over here. This is a custom projects I started years ago and finally finished (more or less, I still have troubles making decent pictures). The main theme is still the same, Duplo duo's. I used supersculpey for Yoda's head and Luke's hairpiece. For Luke's lightsaber I modded an antena with miliputt. At first I gave Yoda a cape, trying to do so in "the spirit" of Lego Duplo, but it didn't work well at all. So I just inspired myself by the minifigure. Hope you like it.
  13. This is the collection of lightsabers I have designed. It includes most of the well-known sabers in the star wars universe, like Darth Vader, Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, etc. And there are also a lot of not-very-well-known lightsabers that I have designed like Quinlan Vos, Ventress (from Dark Disciple), Mara Jade, Anakin Solo, etc. There are 37 total lightsabers. I may do some more in the future because there are some important ones that I haven't done yet. test by ice chips, on Flickr This is an image with the names of the respective owners of the lightsabers in the Star Wars universe all with names by ice chips, on Flickr And these are probably the ones that a lot of people are familiar with the most: UntitledModel by ice chips, on Flickr I did have to get very creative with a lot of these sabers because since I designed most of these with a 4x4 circular width, I was kind of limited in what I could do. That's just the way it is when designing sabers. Once you pick a width, there are some limitations you have to stick to. But nevertheless, I think these turned out really good. I included lightsabers from all across Star Wars. The Prequel trilogy, Original trilogy, videogames like Fallen Order, KOTOR & SWTOR, and EU legends. What are your thoughts on these sabers? And which one is your favorite? I'm kinda curious to see what saber people think is the best one. And I'll include a link to the instructions for these. This particular link is for the entire collection, but on my Rebrickable profile, I have all of these sabers listed individually as well. https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-88594/RendiliBricks/lightsaber-collection/#details
  14. The Y-45 armored transport hauler, also known as AT hauler, built by Kuat Drive Yards and used for the Galactic Empire, with its very agressive and intimidating design, was a great Midi-scale challenge. Accurately Microfig-scaled (or trophy-scaled), and made of 623 pieces, this MOC features all the typical angles and details of the original cargo ship: agressive cockpit shape, intricate wing angles, lower bridge with its guard-rails and stairs, ion engines and magnetic clamps, holding on a single, secure Lego stand. With very simple connections, both arms can be installed upwards to put the ship in landing mode. ► Instructions for the AT Hauler are available for purchase (high quality 180-page PDF & parts list). If you'd like to buy them, hit me up at flyinspace.mocs@gmail.com or visit my Rebrickable page! More pictures on my Flickr album.
  15. This is a re-built MOC that I made last year which previously had an unusual cone shaped 'air intake' style nose that was apparently sacrilegious to some fans lol... It's been sitting on the shelf re-built for quite a while so I finally got round to taking some pics.I called this the Incom T-88 X-wing fighter (long before the Resistance series was shown!), painted in colours favoured by the 'Flame Squadron'... oh and there's an E-wing attack mode too, good for strafing ground targets ;)

    [WIP] Alien Moon Stalker

    I usually don't post my Studio MOCs on Eurobricks, but a friend of mine IRL said Eurobricks might get a kick out of this one. I've read in several places online that some 80s kids used to use the old Alien Moon Stalker set (#6940, year 1986) as a substitute for an AT-AT when playing Star Wars with their Lego way back when. That makes last year's AT-AT set (#75288, year 2020) the natural starting point for a remake of the Alien Moon Stalker. This is still a rough WIP, lots and lots left to do, but I hope you like the idea! Comments and criticism welcome.
  17. 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.
  18. To me, the “purist” line is drawn at using fake/custom/3D printed moulds and permanent modification. For many of my custom figures, I make pauldrons and kamas out of paper, and sometimes even torso wrap-around things. I also make “paper decals” (idk) where I would usually just create markings and the like which I use blu-tack to stick onto the figure. As LEGO fans, would you approve of this and/or consider it “purist”?
  19. Hello everyone, throughout the last 1,5 I updated you guys regularly in my WIP thread for my Empire Strikes Back in Lego Project. Now I am finally done with the project and I'd like to present all my 63 scenes in this new thread to you. The goal of this long lasting project was to re-create my all time favorite Star Wars movie entirely out of Lego covering all iconing scenes. The most challenging parts for sure were that I wanted to re-create everyting out of Lego so I needed to build all the backgrounds for Hoth, Dagobah and Cloud City as well. After watching the movie like for the 200x time in my life and making notes of which scenes I wanted to build I had quite a long list of 60+ scenes. As I already re-build A New Hope in LEGO in 54 scenes it was clear for me that I didn't want to pay less attention to Empire Strikes Back. Hence I took this challenge and now after 1,5 years I am really happy that I covered all 63 scenes :) I hope you enjoy my project and that you will also follow me on my journey of buidling Return of the Jedi (starting in November 2021) The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (1/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (2/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (3/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (4/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (5/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (6/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (7/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (8/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (9/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr PS: you can have a look at all parts in high quality on my FLICKR Album.

  20. Hi! During this summer I've gotten back into building with and designing Lego creations after several years abscence. Two of the first MOCs that I designed are these two. Both of the models are built in the scale of 1:125, meaning that one stud equals one meter (just over three feet). The AT-TE consists of 152 pieces, and the LAAT/i of 198. The AT-TE features rotating guns and (somewhat) poseable legs. The LAAT/i features an opening rear ramp, "sliding" (moveable) side doors, rotating guns and is capable of holding up to ten microfigs. Both xig_brick and ridgedbrick over on Instagram have been huge sources of inspiration. If you would like to see more images of these models, or have a look on some of my other work, please check out my Instagram or Flickr. Best Regards, Dammtuss (a.k.a. Björnbrorsan)
  21. 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] AT-RT

    This AT-RT is probably my fifth try to build it in minifig scale, or at least roughly the right size. I guess is's still a little to big but I think it captures the desing of an AT-RT quiet good. Hope you like it. Let me know what you think about my version.

    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
  24. 2021 remake! Initially it started as a minor update to fix few issues, most notably weak guns/windshield attachment, but over time scope of the changes grew and grew and grew. Changes: - Cockpit now can has space for the pilot in any type of the helmet, including the grossly oversized one; - Cockpit interior now features new controls layout and few more details; the "bowtie" detail taken almost 1:1 from 20feet's variant, with a slight modificiation to make it match the intended "flow' of the cockpit a bit more to my liking. Big thanks here! - gun and windscreen attachment is redone to be much more solid; though this particular change was already implemented in First Order TIEs; - top dish was replaced to use 4x4 one. This is a bit controversional, but bricklink prices for the 6x6 one are extreme, because they appeared on only one set some time ago. 4x4 is much more popular and so this is a better option for a model which is supposed to be built by other people too. - side struts were redone to resemble original ones a bit more. I had great help here from 20feet who helped me to go through few ideas and find one which is a nice compromise between screen accuracy and fitting rest of the ship's styling. Thanks again! - side struts were made longer, as I made a slight scaling mistake in the original TF. - wing/panels are basically an entirely new build. The shape, which has proven to be a little bit controversional due to being much more rectangular, is more similar to what movie and Rogue Squadrons game TIEs are using. I know it is not 100% perfect and a bit too rectangular, but this particular layout enabled me to use most of 1x2 grille bricks, aside from the slopes. I believe it is a good trade-off and the angle is definitely closer to the original, even if wrong in the other direction now. - I also tried 20feet's vertical stacked bricks idea and it looks great - on black background. It is included in the instructions pack, and is probably the best choice for people who will display the ship against black background. Otherwise, gaps between bricks are quite noticeable. Still - a super interesting idea and one which got implemented! - New wing cores: Hexagonal, finally! Again thanks for 20feet's insistence on making them better! I thought my original idea was good enough but it was worth pushing a bit more! - New color variant! This was Charlie's idea (one of Brickvault leads) and I was skeptical even after building it. Thankfully, he insisted and so, over time, this variant grew on me to the point that I now believe it is the best looking one. It is a bit assymetrical but overall a compromise worth doing! - New universal stand debiuts here, and I intend to use it - in various similar versions - for all future ships in this size. So, yeah. Quite a remake. I apologize for delaying it this much, especially after repeatedly telling people the update is "soon". Sorry. This is the first time since 2019 where I finally was able to get everything right. Since T/F shares almost entire core with the T/I, I redid it too: Interceptor shares most of the changes with the Fighter. Initially I did not want to redo the panels - I thought they were perfect, but, well, yeah. They were not. Having Rogue Squadrons 3d models as the sources enabled me to get proper dimensions finally. Ultimately, the panels simply required lenghtening the back part and making those weird offset guns at the tips. I still believe it is an odd choice, but nonetheless, I tried to replicate it. The red one is a Royal Guard TIE Interceptor and aside from the obvious new racey paint scheme, it also features smaller additions to the wings. I tried to keep the angles same as on the main panels, which was quite a challenge, but eventually it ended up being perfectly possible. At this rate, 3.0 is scheduled for release around 2024. Let's place bets on what will change, and please tell me what's the weakest part of those designs, so I can focus on them in the future! I want to ditch 3x3 dome pieces as they clog up the interior, and this probably will be the focus of 3.0 - if I get some good ideas to try. And who knows, maybe I'll be able to make a perfect T/F wing panel this time? --------------------- Yet another LEGO TIE Fighter. How far can this classic design be pushed? How many ways are there to build an eye sandwitched by hexagonal solar panels? Is there a perfect design already? This is where beauty of LEGO as form of modelling strikes with full power, as answers to these questions are: Very far, infinite ways, and no, there is no perfect design available and never will be. In 2014 I have built this: It worked, and I think for 2014 and what was available back then, it was pretty good. It had obvious flaw though: no space for a minifigure, and it was also a little too small in scale. I was limited mostly by the fact there were no proper cockpit pieces, and my attempt with literally the only other one was... not spectacular, not to mention it needed painting with A LOT patience required. The new model takes advantage of this cockpit piece, which allowed me to push that original 2014 design further. I know, I am late to the party, years - literally - behind other designers of great TIE models, like Bricks Feeder or Rebel Builder, yet I hope I can bring something new into the T/F building scene. Originally I thought I would just stretch the build here and there but no, heheh, no way. Literally the only unchanged parts are the eight quarter (or one-eighter?) dome pieces, which are to me still the only way to have smooth and roughly spherical design without holes all around. Unfortunately when we look at a closeup of a real movie-filming model of the T/F we see how far are we from true modelling but I say we're collectively inching towards it pretty nicely. I have said this plenty of times but original designers of TIE Fighters really did all they could to make them unbuildable properly, naturally unknowingly - who would think adult guys 30 years in the future would try to recreate the design using perhaps the weirdest medium available?. The T/F is just a sphere, two struts and two flat hexes. Except: 6-diameter central cokcpit piece would require a 9-diameter ball, minifig-scaled TIE would require an 8-diameter ball and don't even get me started on sources for TIEs dimensions. If you think that Illustrated Guide To Star Wars vehicles is helpful, well, not much. I dare to say this book did awfully lot of harm to LEGO Star Wars MOCing scene. So is my TIE perfect? No, not yet. I promise though, I did all I could to make it as good as possible, with no compromises made. And this time it houses a minifig! The design is super sturdy to my standards, nicely swooshable - for a reason, but I will get to that later. Naturally having a T/F built opens a way towards the Interceptor, which for me is among the best looking spaceship designs in any sci-fi. While the core design is similar, the ball has some differences, mostly to accomodate longer struts. This is because LEGO curiously didn't develop 2x9 plates and for once I was in a situation where I can't really replace 2x9 plate with anything without compromising structural integrity. Having that solved I went onto the wing design and OH GOD INTERNET WHAT HAVE YOU DONE. If anyone knows angle on the panels and can prove it, gets a free beer. With shipping. Because the wings are angled in all dimensions, good luck guessing proper values from photos. Because of the IGTSWV book, half of the models (and I don't even mean LEGO models) existing are wrong. And then because of SW animated series, the other half of the models are also wrong... ...so my source of reference was this: Then after having all that done, I experienced another unexpected problem: The ship is top-heavy and won't stand straight. I added tiny legs on the bottom edges of wings which help a bit, and because the design is quite sturdy, the T/I requires no stand. There you have it. Yet another T/F and T/I. I hope you like the designs and I hope I managed to introduce something new to the very competitive scene. Enjoy! ...but wait, there is more! I would not build these models if not a commission request from BrickVault: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrhb3SP2lZBgguLHIWWuHOQ Originally it was meant to be just a few TIE models based on the 2014 design I had, just LDD files, but over time we developed a much more interesting designs and... instructions for each of them! The instructions are paid and please understand, it took weeks to develop them, error-proof, make the experience enjoyable and builds sturdy enough to be handled easily. Normally I do not make instructions, as I prefer to build with real bricks than to do electronic designs. The instructions are designed to have dozens of simple to follow steps with just few pieces per step, have submodels where needed, parts list for each step and a total bill of parts at the beginning. Additionally, in few places, there are notes to watch out for some particular details. I can fully understand now what LEGO designers go through and I can imagine amount of effort required for making instructions for larger and more complicated designs. I am pretty sure it took more time to design instructions for the recent UCS Millennium Falcon than to design the model itself. Thanks for watching and Happy New Year!

    [J7 - Iridonia - TT] The Mauler...

    *This entry has earned 19 XP* Imperial Triumvirtae forces wreak havoc on the citizens of Iridonia. Ortibal bombardment destroys defenses vital to the protection of the planet. Now, light anti-infantry artillary is deployed against the remaining insurgents. The TIE-ap1, also known as the TIE-Mauler is feared for it's brutal tactics involving speed and agility to maul it's enemies down as they flee for cover. Three anti-infantry cannons are mounted beneath it, along with a detachment for a sentry. With the power supply to the urban areas destroyed, the people will starve, berfore they perish against the might of the empire.The insurgents never stood a chance....
