  1. This is my MOC of the rebel base at Yavin IV based on A New Hope, Rogue One and Star Wars Rebels. I tried to make so that it could possibly be made as an actual LEGO set so it's one section out of four to keep the piece count at around 2,000 pieces and the price as low as possible at this size, and so the exterior can be exhibited and the interior can be accessed to at the same time. The set has 4 different sections, each one based on a different area of the base seen in the movies and the TV series. The first one is the hangar where the ships are fixed and get ready for battles, the second one is the war room where the rebel leaders meet and follow the state of the battles, the third one is the room where the rebel pilots were taught how to destroy the Death Star, and the fourth one is the ceremony room where the heroes of the Battle of Yavin got their medals. I made the set on LDD and rendered it with POV-ray. I've made a list of minifigs that I think should be included with the set and I'm finishing making the illustrations for them since some of them are new so I'll post them too when they are done! Feel free to ask any questions about the moc or leave any comments or critiques about it!
  2. Hi everyone! It's me again. ;) So here she is, finally! I had planned to build this for the 40th anniversary of "A New Hope" in March but I never managed to finish it in time. Well, at least it's still the right year.. :D Tantive IV (1) by Kit Bricksto, on Flickr Although I quite like the official Lego sets for the Tantive IV their proportions were highly inaccurate. I tried to get as close to the original as possible with this model. To get the scale right I started with the hardest part: the cockpit. I wanted it to fit at least two minifigures and that pretty much set the scale for the entire model. Tantive IV (2) by Kit Bricksto, on Flickr The CR-90 Corvette is 126 metres long in universe. My model is pretty much exactly 126 studs long, which makes it 1/3 of minifig scale and to scale with the microfigs. This should give you an idea of just how huge the ships in the Star Wars galaxy are. Tantive IV (3) by Kit Bricksto, on Flickr The top view shows best how off the proportions of the sets (both UCS and playscale) are. The corvette is much longer and sleeker than the Lego-models. Tantive IV (4) by Kit Bricksto, on Flickr The cockpit was the first part of the model I built. I started off with an all-studs-exposed version but didn't like the feel of it, so I tried to figure out a way to get it as smooth as possible. This worked out quite a lot better than I had hoped. Tantive IV (5) by Kit Bricksto, on Flickr One of the trickiest sections to get right was the connection between the cockpit and the main hull. At this point three cylinders meet which is always hard to get right in Lego-form. Tantive IV (6) by Kit Bricksto, on Flickr And of course I can't build anything without adding some interior detail, too. This did result in the main body of the ship being a little larger than it should but personally I don't mind so much. Tantive IV (7) by Kit Bricksto, on Flickr The cockpit seats two pilots and two communications officers. The captain can stand behind the pilots and oversee all manouvers. Tantive IV (8) by Kit Bricksto, on Flickr The main body houses a conference room, that seats four minifigs comfortably, even leaving room for a protocol droid. Behind the conference room there are two comm-stations, one of which has just received the Death-Star plans! Tantive IV (9) by Kit Bricksto, on Flickr Aft of the comm-stations there is the access-tunnel to the escape pods, where C3PO is looking for R2-D2. Tantive IV (10) by Kit Bricksto, on Flickr And finally, in the tower underneath the radar dish, there is room for one more crew-member manning the radar-station. Tantive IV (11) by Kit Bricksto, on Flickr I really hope you like it. This project has been a real work of passion for me and I am very happy to have finished it. Please leave a comment if you like it, I'd really appreciate it! And if you don't like it, well, constructive criticism is just as welcome! ;) Cheers, Kit
  3. OG Star Wars - Vader's Tie Fighter

    1st release of Darth Vader in LEGO form: Darth Vader's TIE Fighter in action, from Lego set 7150 Vader's Tie Fighter and Y-Wing.
  4. Today I present to you all my thoughts on 75173 Luke's Landspeeder! Photos are from brickset.com. Remakes, remakes, remakes. This is a remake of the 2014 Mos Eisley Cantina's Landspeeder, and they look really similar, minus some minor aesthetic changes. The newer one is on the left and the older one is on the right. Perhaps only the addition of macaroni tiles and dark red astromech heads are the differences visible at first glance. You get 4 minifigures: Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan "Ben" Kenobi, C-3PO, and a Tusken Raider. These have all appeared before. Oh, more remakes! Luke previously came in the Death Star, Obi-Wan in the Mos Eisley Cantina and the Death Star, C-3PO in the Droid Escape Pod and the Death Star, and the Tusken Raider in the Skyhopper. Luke looks good, getting the balance between simple and detailed just right, in my opinion. Ben is mediocre. His hair is rather plain and the leg printing is pretty bad. C-3PO is a good minifigure, but really needs dual-moulding for his right leg. The Tusken Raider is a good minifigure as always, but the head might be just a little oversized. Here is the landspeeder. All hail the glorious macaroni tiles on the front! The engines look good with the addition of the dark red droid heads too. Engine detailing relies on stickers wrapped all around. I like the tubes on the front, but that is an old technique. There is seating for two plus space for Threepio at the back near the central engine, which can be lifted up to reveal a hidden storage area. All in all, I think this is a good-looking set, but it largely rides on the success of the previous Landspeeder. This does have minor aesthetic changes which do help it to look better, but remaking a speeder in just 3 years and not changing much isn't that great. If they couldn't find much to improve, they should've waited a couple more years before rereleasing it. Also, at 149 pieces, the value is worse than other $24.99 sets. Verdict? Get it if you don't have the 2014 Landspeeder AND if it is on discount. I probably won't be getting this, considering I'm going to get 75159.
  5. Hi guys, just a quick update but a micro build I am very pleased with! I have wanted to build a micro Falcon for sometime now and this actually took a bit longer than I had hoped but I am really happy with the end result. Untitled by dimitrinicomanis, on Flickr Its only 4x4 but I have managed to get in all the details that make the Falcon the iconic ship it is. Untitled by dimitrinicomanis, on Flickr The base wasn't part of my original idea but I had the Falcon on a tan plate just as a random support and suddenly thought it would look quite cool if there was a micro Mos Eisley below. Untitled by dimitrinicomanis, on Flickr The colour of the Falcon is white because as a kid to me it was always white, the toys might have got the colours wrong but they just stuck with me!
  6. --UPDATED VERSION OF MY PREVIOUS MOC-- The newly-released Star Wars Battlefront showcases some of the best weapons from the original trilogy films. These included the weapons seen on Tatooine, the Death Star, Hoth, Bespin, Endor, and Jakku. This design is from the Battle of Hoth: the Rebel Alliance's 1.4 FD P-Tower. This turret was crucial to the Battle of Hoth, as the Rebels would not be able to deal with the countless Imperial forces otherwise. The Lego Group has released a few renditions of the weapon themselves. Some have been great, while others (like the one in 75098) barely resemble the original weapon. This design took some work, but the end product is everything I wanted. My MOC is a minifig-scale design with a realistic design and control panel assembly. The design is built more for looks, explaining the supplemental energy pack's inclusion. However, one of the best playability features is the snow pad. The inner assembly includes a platform which can be rotated to change the angle the turret is shooting at. Should be great in helping your Rebel troops defeat those pesky Imperial Snowtroopers or AT-STs. MOCpages. Comments welcome. God bless.
  7. [MOC] Vader's TIE advanced x1

    Dear LEGO and Star Wars enthusiasts, I'm glad to present to you my first MOC attempt, Lord Vader's personal TIE advanced, made in February. Last December, due to TFA hype, I've rediscovered my long-dozing passion for Star Wars and so/also, after more than 12 years, I restarted to build Legos. I was very disappointed, though, by TLG's 8017, and so I decided to design & build a TIE advanced, one of my favorite iconic starships, on my own. A great help came from the new cockpit parts (and sketch) from 75082 (Inquisitor's TIE advanced), which made everything simpler. Also, after discovering EB, I was able to admire many great MOCs, and certainly was influenced by many of them (moreover, discovering bricklink was quite like finding a goldmine). I've tried my best to obtain a balance among movie accuracy, playability and extreme SWOOOOOSHability. The model is in minifig scale, and even if it's quite big (with respect to 8017 and 75150), it's very lightweight. Piece count is about 500. I hope these photographs will give you a quite faithful portrait of my model, anyway I find their lack of tridimensionality disturbing. (Imgur album: http://imgur.com/a/M62yW) As regards the wings/solar panels, I tried to make them look as streamlined as possible, in contrast with the popular thick-contoured solution as seen in 9492 TIE (I was happy to see that TLG used a very similar approach in set 75150, TIE advanced + A-wing from Rebels). Rear views: Having a closer look to the central "core": i decided to use those smooth quarter-of-half-sphere pieces for the rear part of the cockpit. To recreate the gradual emergence of the central rectangle on the back, i placed small sloped pieces by its side, as you can see. (You can see that the wing/solar panel attachments are really solid. In fact the model is extremely swooshable and it won't come apart even in performing the most extreme flying maneuvers :D :D) As regards the front of the cockpit, I tried my best to give it a spherical outline: Inside of the cockpit (partially disassembled to look better inside): And finally the underside, showing the play features: laser shooters, activated by sliding with a finger on the round valve, and the engine-hyperdrive compartment with a special place to clip Vader's lightsaber. Unfortunately, i'm missing the minifigure of Lord Vader himself. When i'll get one, i'll update this post with a photo of him inside the cockpit. I hope that you will appreciate my little model, and I can't wait to receive your feedback and suggestions. :)

  9. [MOC] Classic Y-Wing Bomber

    When I acquired set 9495 when it was released, I thought it was the perfect Y-Wing. A few years later, I decided to do my own version. Here's what I came up with: One important detail I wanted was for the astromech droid to be able to sit perpendicular to the ship: For the engines, I kept the original 9495 nacelle and engine assembly, but bulked it up with several greebled plates. I really liked the bomb-dropping feature of 9495, so I installed it in my MOC. I hope you like it!

  11. MINI Y-Wing Starfighter

    Hello everybody! It's been a while since my last Star Wars mini model has been posted here, thus I think it's time that we move along. Today I'd like to share an Y-Wing Starfighter with you. Due to the complicated engine fuselage, this is a particular hard to build model with increasing difficulty the smaller you get by maintaining all details. I hope you will enjoy the following images. See you soon with more new mini models! Cheers, Christopher
  12. It all started a year ago. I was following toomuchcaffeine's project on cuusoo (micro star wars scenes), and in the comments he said he had trouble making an X-wing. I could spare some time, and I started building myself, in the hope that I could contribute to that wonderful project. I wondered how small I actually could go making the X-wing. I wanted to make it instantly recognizable and yet very tiny (those official micro models from the planet sets are great, but you can't call that micro ). So I had to use some odd parts for het most iconic features: the wings. The X-wing got car doors.Once I had that key-feature, I kept the main body simple and focused on the shape. I suggested this design, but (obviously!) it was too big for 2MC's project (no hard feelings!) But I started to really like this micro-scale building. I improved my X-wing, and decided to deliver him a friend enemy. The TIE-advanced got shields as wings. I was happy with this micro build and I made this little scene, complete with pew-pew lasers! (the flick-fire missiles are unfortunately out of scale ...) Again, built with LDD and rendered with LDD2POV-Ray. Then, I amused myself by making a real scene , with the excuse of letting you see the model from another angle... Hope you like it, and if you do: thank you, the pleasure is all mine. Eurobricks is awesome
