  1. NEW Models will appear in replies later in this thread Models in this thread: RAZOR CREST RIOT MAR'S STARFIGHTER NEW REPUBLIC PRISON SHIP OUTLAND TIE FIGHTER IMPERIAL DROPSHIP JUGGERNAUGHT TREXLER MARAUDER COBB VANTH'S SPEEDER 546-CLASS CRUISER (ARQUITENS) RAZOR CREST Hello everybody I thought I would take a short break from building stuff from the animated series and build something “real”. Also what better way to celebrate the launch of the first live action Star Wars TV series than by building something out of LEGO?! Unfortunately being in the UK I might have to wait to actually watch it. ☹ Anyway I present my MINI version of the Mando’s starship ‘The Razor Crest’. And I must say I am really pleased with how this little model turned out. I am especially pleased with how the engines have turned out. At first I was not sure how to attach them and keep them at the right level but in the end I settled on the minifigure neck brackets. The engines themselves are built around a 1x1 brick with studs on the sides and the two ends of the engines are connected with a 4L Bar. I also think those grey ingot pieces give the shape perfectly. The ship also goes from 1 stud wide to 2 and back again so I could use those new triangle tiles for the rear ramp section. I have also made the usual ‘Planets’ style display with the new Mandalorian minifigure. I could go on but I will let the model speak for itself. Let me know what you think. Jon PS. Is it just me or does this ship remind anyone else of the ‘Serenity’ from Firefly?

    Old Memories, New Dreams

    I was 8 years old when I got my first Lego Classic Space set LL918. I remember I spent hours with catalogs looking at LL924 and the Galaxy Explorer LL928. When I got LL928 from my grandma I was thrilled and couldn't let go. I even took it with me on holidays. Galaxy Explorer Dropship by Giorgio Chronas, auf Flickr A few years later I saw the Galaxy Commander in the store. At the time, due to my father's job, I was living in an a developing country in Africa, where Legos were very rare. I was gazing at the store window, nearly paralyzed and probably with a wide open mouth. I had just past my birthday and for Christmas time I would have to wait a long time. As quickly as I could I ran back home broke that piggy bank into pieces, took everything I had and ran back to the store. I still remember the feelings I had when building this spaceship and looking at every new part as if it were yesterday. Galaxy Commander Dropship_1 by Giorgio Chronas, auf Flickr Now, decades later, being an AFOL I still love space topics, specially neo classic space models from other Afols. A few years ago I remember seeing Wolf Leews modernized version of LL928 (and 924 and 918) in LegoIdeas and having exactly the same feelings. I tried to push it in LegoIdeas but unfortunately it did not make it to the threshold. Wolf Leews, if you see this post, thanks for sharing the instructions. I have your models in my showcase ever since. The idea of an own classic space model did not let go of me. It took me again years of thinking how to approach this topic. My problem was I wanted everything. I wanted to have a command centre, several spaceships, some robots some cool versatile and functional vehicles, a garage where the vehicles would go for repair, a habitat, a repair bay for the robots. And I wanted the antagonists as well: Blacktrons! And I wanted everybody to build up his own space station. Uff! Galaxy Explorer Commander Dropship I knew this was impossible. Then my Lego Pueblo came to mind. It was a 4in1 set proposal at LegoIdeas that you could buy multiple times and stack to each other building up your own Pueblo village. My Lego Pueblo did not make it to the threshold but if I did such a concept once, maybe I could do it again. Many months of thinking and planning what to do, which bricks to use, color scheme, how to combine classic space with Blacktron, drawing and doing research followed. Then I started building. The target was a 3in1 space creator set with three different scenarios that you could combine forming a big space centre. Each scenario should have its own theme and its own playability concept. At the same time some models of one scenario should connect to models of other scenarios, so at the end you have one big unity. I also needed a story. As I love sci-fi and astronomy this part was the easiest one for me. What came out was space station "Antares", a 3in1 space creator set, where New Classic Space searches for Legonit ressources and Blacktrons trying to steal it from them. One alternate build is the Mining Outpost, the other one is the Bot Repair Bay and one is the Galaxy Dropship. 9 Antares Classic Space3x by Giorgio Chronas, auf Flickr With the Galaxy Dropship I combined the features of the Galaxy Explorer and the Galaxy Commander and built a mashup that had its own look. Like the Galaxy Commander the dropship can be split into a space fighter and the cargo bay. Like the Commander it may hold a space lab. But it also may hold a space buggy like the Galaxy Explorer. Since the space buggy is from scenario Mining Outpost, I decided it may also hold the truck from its own scenario. Then I continued. The Galaxy Dropship may hold the trailer the fuel or plasma tanks or even a small space fighter which actually is the cockpit of the robot of scenario Bot Repair Bay. The set seems to be huge, too big, but actually it is only big when the set is acquired multiple times. As a single set it has less bricks than the biggest official LegoIdeas set. I hope you like it and support it at LegoIdeas. It is another attempt to bring back some space without StarWars. 5 Antares Galaxy Dropship by Giorgio Chronas, auf Flickr 6 Galaxy Dropship Hangar by Giorgio Chronas, auf Flickr Guys I do not want to bore you too much. Please take a look for yourself at LegoIdeas. Check out the three different video animations (search for "Legocionado" at YouTube) and take a look at the pics of the updates at LegoIdeas (I have made some animated gifs explaining the concept).

    [MOC] Futuron Dropship & Speeders

    Hi everyone, This is my latest creation: Futuron Dropship. I wanted to build a dropship and was inspired by several Star Wars cruisers. This dropship can transport an exploration car and droids. The front can be opened and two people are positioned behind the controls. At the back is a ramp, that can be openend (like a plane). The roof can be removed to see the interior. See more pictures in my Flickr album. A few months ago, I've build some speeders for Futuron. One other picture is in the same album I mentioned earlier. Sander
  4. Hi everyone, it is my first time creating a post in Star Wars forum. I usually create City theme MOC. #75280 is a hot topic recently. So I designed this 501st Legion Attack Dropship. This model is base on the dropship in Hasbro's 2013 Movie Herores Class I vehicle collection. If you want to build it, I have published the full instruction in my latest Youtube video:

  7. Hello everyone! A while ago I stumbled upon @Lobot's bricklinking threads, and I decided to bricklink my favourite set, 10195 Republic dropship with at ot. Here is an interesting fact, I didn't use bricklink. At that time I never used bricklink and wasn't familiar with it either, so I went on Rebrickable for a parts list and uploaded it onto brickowl. Does anyone use that site? Anyway, I bought everything from one seller to cut down shipping costs... but the results turned out pretty great in my opinion. All the features worked and the colours looked right. I dunno, but I felt proud of myself after finally completing the order in after what seemed a long time. Now it waas time for the parts to arrive. On an extra note, I got the set for very cheap, around 300 AUD. Go figure. Here it is! The dropship: The AT OT: Everything works! Compatible with the 7675 AT TE and also compatible with 8098 Turbo Tank I hope you enjoyed this, comments are welcomed! Hint: I have ordered parts for another bricklinked project, be on the lookout for another topic soon!
  8. While waiting for more building materials for Inferno HQ we decided that it was time the Agents of Godwins Hollow upgraded their vehicles. The first two are some basic MODs/repaints to vehicles from existing sets but the third is a MOC dropship allowing the Agents to get significant numbers of personnel into the fray quickly.

  9. The Platipus Class Imperial Shuttle never saw extensive service. It was designed to be slightly smaller than the Tydirium Class with heavy missile armament, but its dependency on supply lines quickly got the project cancelled after a handful of them saw limited action against pirate raiders. The foot soldiers liked it because it was a mix between a Tank Buster and a Transport vehicle ( MI-24 Hind wink wink ) I wanted to design something that had the marks of a Star Wars craft with added shapes inspired by real life animals (Platipus) and aquatic insects (Water beetle) with a Tie Advanced jammed in there :D The craft has no internals. It is just for display. Feedback is welcome

    Custom Aliens Minifigs by Matthias: http://www.eurobrick...pic=58464&st=25 Power loader design by Larry Lars
  11. Hello all, just a warning- this is pic heavy. I don't think there were any restrictions on that in the guidelines, but oh well. I also would like to apologize for the annoying shadow of my head in some of the shots; that's just how it turned out with my lighting setup. Now a brief prelude. It is a period of Galactic Civil War all throughout the Galaxy, around one year after the famous Battle of Endor. General and Princess Leia Organa has sent Han Solo and his wookiee friend Chewbacca to recover stolen credits on the planet Bnar, a system in the Blaxant Sector, a space deep in Imperial territory. Han and his small squadron had almost managed to escape the imperial outpost when an imperial dropship full of the dreaded Storm Troopers arrived on the scene. Figless. Just the base and terrain. Well that's a wrap. Thanks for looking everyone and may the force be with you... always ~~Strider~~ Sorry, forgot to mention in the title- this is in the Large Category
  12. Location: E11 - The Fascini Cluster Tags: Vehicle, Spaceship, Land Vehicle, Exploration, Civil --Weekly Explorer's Transmission-- --Log of Eagle-Eye Silver-- --12 Oktobrinali 3815-- After Kawashita spent some time mining Sector E11, a treaty was struck to share the awesomnium-rich asteroid field between Kawashita and Octan Corp. The sharing agreement gives Octan Corp. the opportunity to acquire the precious resource. I’ve been piloting an OT-14 Zelus dropship-style shuttle this past week making cargo runs between the large asteroids in the Fascini Cluster. It’s fairly menial work, confirming a different manifest a few times a day and running between asteroid and fleet endlessly. At least the Zelus is nimble and quick. The four Pegasus TFG thrusters are controlled independently by the flight control computer and that vectoring makes for impressive maneuverability for landing and docking as well as at high speed. There’re even rumors of Octan SpecOps modifying some of these shuttles for their use, and of course painting them black. After piloting this thing for a week, I can certainly see the appeal. --End-- I really need to build more in the week! More pics tomorrow-ish, I need some sleep...

    [SoNE 8.2] "Here We Go Again..."

    Edit: Please judge! The story so far: First Day Aboard the Avenger At The Table-Before The Storm Rescue Mission Reassigned Eliminating The Competition Target Practice *Imagine that the white background is sky where necessary (Still not too good at GIMP.)* The Build/Story: After some target practice, and a mission briefing, Beltar’s squad and one other squad where dropped off by Medical SSD Massacre and Medical Research ISD, Bludgeon. Once Savior One and Two were in the atmosphere: (On board Savior 1) Sarge: Here we go again. Another drop. Nervous aren't you, of course you are, first time you're gonna be jumping out of a ship... Beltar: Yeah…Also because I read the report of what Weisson is supposed to be doing down there… Sarge: That rebel base? Don’t worry. We won’t be going anywhere near that thing. I hope. *Pilot over Comm* This is your captain speaking. I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that we will be over the drop zone in T-Minus 20 minutes. The bad news is: I got one scary a** Rebel gun pointing at us. We are gonna have to start the drop sooner. I’m surprised that they’d shoot at two more ships with red crosses on the sides. Sarge: Cooper? Is that even possible? We were supposed to be far away from that. *Pilot* Yeah…We are…but that’s one heckuva cannon…Also Savior 2 has been hit, and has begun the drop. *Explosison* *Pilot* Woah! We're hit. What was that back there? Sarge: Uh, Rom ain’t comin down with us… Beltar: Well there he goes… He’s kinda dead now… *Pilot* Well that’s great. One hull breach and part of our shield was hit, along with Searchlight 1, even though we are dropping during the day. Sarge: Just try to get us a little closer! *Pilot* Alright, Savior 2 has just confirmed that all crew but the copilot is off, ‘cause the pilot is dead. And Malcom is putting her down. And I gotta get Kirk and the MP on the ground now. Opening Ramp at the same time. Sarge: Roger that Cooper…Knew you guys probably wouldn’t make it home… Begin drop sequence Gamma-Alpha Four. Also, inform Kirk to pull the shute a little earlier so we don't waste another hour like last time greasing up the joins from the force of landing... *Pilot* Haha! Will do Sarge. Beltar: What do you mean Sarge? By both those things? Sarge: Gamma-Alpha Four means the front jumps first, cause their gonna get hit first from a cannon. And normally, our pilots don’t make it home. Cooper has had a streak of five missions. I think his luck is up, he was good while he lasted. Beltar: Can’t he jump? Sarge: We don’t have enough supplies, and pilots are not trained for the field. Also, he has to set her down in the right place… The troops started filing one by one to the back. The scout with snipers and a light jetpack, Scourge with a stretcher, Boris with a stretcher, and Rodrick, carrying the tent and a couple other supplies. Most of the blasters and other supplies were stored on Savior 2, which was completely cleared before going down besides the co-pilot. Sarge: Move it along men, move it. Rodrick: Ah, poor Rom. Boris: Well let’s get a move on you slow scout! Scout: One sec, waiting for the right balance.. Boris: Oh come on! MOVE already! Beltar: They always like this during a drop? Sarge: They know we may be going down soon, they want to get off faster, before that happens. Boris: Alright boys, let’s make mom and dad proud. Jumpin’ into a zone while being shot at takes some courage...Also I'm last off" Scout: Well good Ol’ Boris, you a coward? Boris: Ah shut up, I’m always out last for section one, and you know that punk. Scout: Fine, let’s jump! Boris: See you down there Beltar and Sarge. Good luck on your decent! Geronimo! Beltar: see you down there… Sarge: Have a good flight! *Pilot* This is your captain speaking. Cabin 2 is lost, all crew in cabin two are dead from what I can see over my cam, so Beltar and Sarge, your turn. Better do it quick, I feel like that gun is getting a lock on us… Beltar: Come on! What are you waiting for sir! Sarge: I’m jammed! Beltar Go Go Go! Get off while you can! Beltar: Not leaving without you Sarge. Sarge: Come on lad, pull for cryin out loud! Pull! Beltar: Well you gotta push you know! Sarge: I AM! In about 15 seconds of pushing and pulling, it became unjammed, and Sarge rose up quickly to get his gear. Sarge: Alright, let’s go. Beltar: Agreed. *Pilot* This is your co-pilot speaking. Cooper is down, and I suggest you boys get off fast! See you on the other side. GO GO GO GO N--…. *Boom* Sarge: RUN! Beltar: I’m running, I’m going! Sarge: Now or never Beltar, we are higher than we are supposed to be but we got— Ah, jumping already… Beltar: I think I’d rather jump! Pilot Log: More Pictures in this spoiler. Bonus, I liked this one, so I didn't delete it, but I also didn't want to use it for the story pictures. This build was more of a filler, and to get my story moving, so that I can use my last 3 freebuilds, and to try to finish this arc before the next episode comes out... Hope you enjoyed, and as always, C and C welcome! ~Beltar

    MOC : Space Marine Troop Dropship

    After a few years of buying sets post dark ages, I began designing my own stuff in LDD. Pretty much all of them have stayed just that, an LDD file, but within the past six months I have started to actually physically build some. The following is my fourth LDD-to-physical-bricks model, and also my largest to date. So without further ado, I present my Space Marine Troop Dropship. I have a thing for futuristic ships, and dropships just have that something extra. The whole model took around 3 months to design, and by the time I'd finished it had ended up at a whopping 1068 pieces! Well its a lot to me anyway hah. The end cost reached roughly £120, so the purchases of elements was spilt over a couple of months. The first part I worked on were the engines, which are actually reverse-engineered from the leg thrusters from Eris' Eagle Interceptor. From that point i worked from the front backwards. Originally the model was going to be black and grey, and although it looked awesome, I thought that a craft used by figures this bulky would not need to look 'stealthy', so therefore it got changed into classic space grey and blue. The engines can rotate from flight mode to landing mode, and two engines are located at the rear for space travel. It can hold 7 troops, 6 in the main compartment, and one in the cockpit, thought the armour had to be removed to fit him in there. At some point I want to modify the rear to include an area to store equipment, as its currently just an empty space. Any comments or criticism is welcome, and I hope you enjoyed having a looksee.
  15. This playset is a foil to LEGO set 7667 Imperial Dropship, but is inspired mostly by the Rogue One concept artwork revealed at Star Wars Celebration VII. Rogue One Rebel Dropship Battlepack by SPARKART!, on Flickr. The daring Rebel commandos deploy from the dropship by "mynocking", hanging facedown from the dropship doors. The dropship carries three rebel troopers and a pilot. The cargo doors and cockpit open, the flight deck chair swivels, and missiles are fired from the top-mounted spring-loaded launchers.

Instructions available <TBD>, so you can examine, modify, and build this playset. 118 pieces total, 95 pieces for the dropship.
  16. The Imperial Base located in...I don´t know a frozen planet in an uncharted system where the Imperial troops try to secure new energy sources and raw materials for sustaining the military effort. Although the basis of the troops are snowtroopers (109), there is a small platoon of the Special Operations Unit. This unit has many tasks, and one of them is to complement the reconaissance work of some of the drones. And these drones sometimes find a valuable prey. As soon as the location of the prey is known, a squad is send to get the pray because the Base Commander wants to arrange a BBQ. However, they don´t always arrive on time and nothing but bones is what they find. Oh! A wampa! This is rather a dangerous enemy! And the troops open fire, of course, in self defense. But a wounded wampa is a very dangerous creature, and more if it is at point blank. And the result is a stormtrooper with a leg amputated. Fortunately, the attack was reported and the evacuation APD was sent. The Base hospital was calmed. The medical officer was checking his IMPBOOK profile. The APD landed and two off-duty snowies were sent with a stretcher to help in the movement to the operating room. One of his fellows takes his leg before the injured stomtrooper gets inside. Quickly!!! The medical droid, also known as "You´d rather not meet me" is ready and starts the work. Wow! The leg is in place! It is so fast that the stormtrooper runs away. His fellow and the doctor are impressed. Have two additional pics of the Hospital. Enjoy! You can check it on mocpages,

    Assault Gunship - My first MOC

    Here is my first MOC, realized with LDD. It's an assault gunship/dropship for special forces, carrying a complement of 5 soldiers (one officer, 4 troopers). It's armed to the teeth, considering that it's mainly a transport. I know there's still much to correct and define, and I'm open to suggestions! (P.S.: the cockpit is open to show the pilot) Front view Rear engines can swivel to maneuver The soldiers inside are so tough they are having a fine time riding to battle You never know when you'll need missiles, better carry enough Counting the seconds to the action Tailgunner is angry The Lieutenant leading the chalk is not scared The pilot knows his way around the battle field Assault Gunship.lxf
  20. Hey there everyone, I'm Joev14, a new guy on the forums. I got myself pretty much all the fall 2013 star wars sets, and have been experimenting with an idea I had, what if it were possible to put working lego electronic lights into a Republic Gunship and AT-TE, without using any modified parts. After much work, I have finally found a way to do lights in both the AT-TE and the Gunship. So without further ado, I present to you, building steps for how to install working unmodified lights into your Republic Gunship. Click the photos to be linked to larger versions of the images. Sorry for the change in lighting throughout the pictures, sometimes the flash from my camera makes it hard to see the separate white parts, so I don't always use it. Step 1: Begin with a standard 75021 Republic Gunship (Mine is slightly modded with orange accents and a few other things, but the base design is still the same) Step 2: Absolutely necessary parts. You will also need a wire of whatever desired length (I recommend the 15-stud long ones), and two of these lights. Step 3: Recommended parts Step 4: Remove any parts that may get in your way, including minifigs inside the hangar. I also recommend removing the wings, although you don't absolutely need to. Step 5: Remove this chunk of the ship. Step 6: Remove the two sides of the upper section of the ship. Step 7: Continue by removing all the above-shown parts. Step 8: Remove the 4 containers. It is your choice whether or not you want to keep them. I chose to turn them into a crate as shown below. Step 9: Canister pod Step 10: Remove these two pieces Step 11: Replace the four openings where the canisters used to be with these four bricks. Also, run a wire from the hanger roof through the opening in front of the handle as shown. Step 12: Place these three plates on the bottom of the battery box. Make sure to put in a 9V battery first, so you don't have to go back and do it later! Step 13: Place the battery box in the space shown. Attach the lead of wire to the battery box (make sure to skip one set of studs, this is crucial). Step 14: Place two of the slopes in front of the wire end, and two small cheese slopes behind the co-pilot. Place 2 L-shaped plates around the wire opening. Step 15: Place two 1x2 plates ontop of the L-shaped ones, then another two L-shaped plates facing in the opposite direction atop those. Finally, place two 1x3 plates ontop, bridging the battery box to the L-shaped plates. Step 16: Place two more 1x3 plates on both sides of the end of the wire. Place two rounded slopes atop them, and finally, place a 2x4 tile on top of the wire end. Step 17: Place two more rounded slopes to cover the wiring. Step 18: Reattach the remaining large sections of the upper part of the ship, excluding the wings. You may fill in the gaps as desired. I intentionally left the 1x4 block area behind the co-pilot exposed so you can still press the button on the battery box. Step 19: Next comes the lights. There is no specific way you have to place them, but I chose to do it in this configuration. With a few red studs, as well as two round trans-orange bricks, I can get the two lamps to light up the whole hangar. Step 20: Above are the parts you should still have remaining, assuming you used the same method I did. Step 21: Reattach the wings and put all your figs back in, your done! Step 22: And boy does it look sweet! What are everyone's thoughts/suggestions for this? The only thing that really seemed to have me stumped was the rounded slopes in front of the handle, I couldn't figure out a sturdier design. While it does hold up, it looks a little awkward with all the obvious spaces between the bricks. I can't figure out a better looking way to do it and still have room for the wire though. Ideas? Facecast Episode discussing these modifications: (skip to 15:20) I will be posting the guide for how to put lights into a 75019 AT-TE soon!

    Punch It Bishop

    Scene from James Cameron's 1986 movie 'Aliens' So far I've only built the front section of the dropship plus the cargo hold which is big enough to carry a full size 14-wide Larry Lars APC. So I hope to take some shots of the APC on the ramp when I've finished the tail section of the model. In case any of you youngsters are wondering what 'Punch it Bishop' means, here's the scene from Aliens:
