  1. Just in time for the end of the contest - here is my entry, the former crown jewel of my MOC collection: The K-Wing! The photos sadly aren't as good as I'd like them to be, but I think everything should be recognizeable. FXT29913 by Ephseb FXT29921 by Ephseb FXT29839 by Ephseb FXT29857 by Ephseb, auf Flickr FXT29932 by Ephseb FXT29887 by Ephseb FXT29905 by Ephseb I built this five years ago, but never uploaded it anywhere in order to save it for a contest like this - I hope it's enough to finally scrape my first win!
  2. First of all, I'm a little sad that most of my custom figures - which I can assure you are much better than these - aren't eligible for this contest. But giving up? That's not the Jedi way. I present: My tribute to some of the Expanded Universe's most famous characters, in this case, straight from the comic series Tales Of The Jedi and Knights Of The Old Republic, and of course the KOTOR videogames. Because Lego still hasn't made yellow lightsaber blades, the old „green" ones were used instead. Picture 1 From left to right: Zayne Carrick - Darth Nihilus - Exar Kun - Darth Malak - Bastila Shan Picture 2 One more, with better lighting: Picture 3 Again, I swear this isn't the best I can do - I hope you still like it and get inspired to make your own Legends figures! We can always help and learn from one another, like true Jedi. May the Force[4th] be with you!
  3. I thought I'd build something while waiting for my E-Wing parts. I don't intend to build this IRL any time soon, but I've not seen many Lego versions of the Starviper, so I decided to see how it would turn out. So I present possibly the most awkwardly shaped ship in Star Wars. :P And a reference. If I ever get around to building it for real, I'll be sure to bump this. :) New version with instructions.

    [MOC] Z-95 Headhunter

    Since everyone is building X-wings, why not build something similar but less well known? The Z-95 Headhunter is one that has many variations both in Canon and Legends, the most notable ones being the "X-wing without the S-foils" and that really ugly one shown in The Clone Wars series. I was influenced by various maquettes and illustrations of a Z-95 with the big engines. My take on the starfighter is that it's a newer model produced in the post-ROTJ era, with influences from its distant cousin, the T-70 X-wing. I worked 3 weeks on this, and incorporates some crazy building techniques influenced by many people on this forum. I'm not to happy with some of the results, it's not as perfect as, say, Jerac's MOC, but then again I'm kinda new at this... There are more pics at the flickr album and may post more. Lastly, a small scene with an upcoming MOC...
  5. Hello everyone, I'm finally back with a new model! This is was built on impulse from all the medium-light-nougat-brown (?) pieces I had lying around. It's a Yorik-Et, the main starfighter of the Yuuzhan Vong Empire. All biological data can be found here: You can find more pictures on my flickr page. I'll add some with better lighting this upcoming weekend. Yorik-Et - main by Ephseb, auf Flickr Yorik-Et - w/ pilot by Ephseb, auf Flickr If you're wondering why the MOCs I posted on EB so far were all of a not-really-high quality, the answer is rather simple: I'm saving my best models for upcoming contests Hopefully it will pay off... In the meantime, look out for my next post - a medium-scale Victory-class star destroyer.
  6. Update 2: I finally solved the problem with the wings (only being held in place by gravity) in a way that doesn't look too clunky. Now the model is a bit more swooshable ;) Update: It's difficult to stop trying to improve your creation but this should be the final version. I cleaned up the colorsceme a bit, added a bit more detail to the wingtips and modified the wing cannons and thrusters. Hi and thanks for looking at my first post, After seeing the render of the E-Wing from Fate of the Galaxy I wanted to build a Lego version of it. After a two weeks of improving my design this is the endproduct: While I tried to recreate the original model as exact as possible I made some small changes and I had some problems recreating the nose section. I'm no expert with snot techniques and I couldn't find a better cockpit piece. In the end I combined the nose of the 4502 X-Wing and 7259 ARC-170. The rear hatch was inspired by the 75051 Jedi Scout fighter. I build a lot of slightly different versions of the E-Wing and I included an older version with another cockpit piece in the LDD file. In the file there is a small gap in the nose section. In a brick built version the gap can be filled with a 2x2 plate.

    [MOC] TIE Raptor

    [spoilers for the X-Wing series and Courtship of Princes Leia] The TIE Raptor or TIE/rpt was a starfighter design used by Warlord Zsinj's Empire during his reign from the Battle of Endor until his final defeat at the hands of the Hapan Royal Navy. A fast and manouverable design, it was not a regular SFS product like other TIE models, but was produced from Sienar components at the shipyards of Zsinj's hideout - Rancor Base - over Dathomir. Raptors are known to have participated in the battles of Vahaba and Selaggis, and were most likely used in many other missions and engagements, since Zsinj's elite troopers (also named Raptors) used them for space combat. The TIE/rpt was equipped with 4 laser cannons and 2 concussion missile launchers, but like most TIE models, lacked shielding, though some prototypes were produced. I admit my design is far from perfect, but I hope you still enjoy seeing my take on the Raptor. Pictures can be found on my Flickr page: Technical data and history of the TIE Raptor: You can learn more about Zsinj here:

    Expanded Universe Contest

    UPDATE! The deadline has been extended to Aug 2nd! UPDATE! The prizes have been listed! What has, for decades now, been the history of the Star Wars universe after Return of the Jedi will officially be replaced this December. The story of the Expanded Universe has been told through dozens of books, some of them good and some of the not-so-good. But for many Star Wars fans, those books have been on equal footing with the movies. It has been long enough now since Lucas announced that he would be re-writing Star Wars history, that those of us who are EU fans have come to terms with the fact. But before Star Wars 7 is released, I want to celebrate the former EU with a contest. Because the EU covers too large an amount of time, this contest will only deal with events taking place between 4 ABY to 24 ABY (ABY=After the Battle of Yavin). The contest will also only include content found in books, not video games or e-novellas. Each entry will need to cite which book it is from (exact page numbers not necessary). The following is a list of books that can be used for this contest: For those who are less familiar with the EU I would suggest checking out Wikipedia and Wookieepedia's sections on the New Republic era as that is where all the books you can build from are found. Category A: Show an interaction between the good guys and the bad guys. Maybe Jacen and Jaina Solo are trying to escape from Qorl, the TIE pilot. Maybe Corran Horn is helping to defeat the ghost of Exar Kun. Maybe Talon Karrde is trying to survive an encounter with Admiral Thrawn. Or maybe the Rogue Squadron is facing off against Ysanne Isard. Whichever characters you choose, this category should be about the interaction between them. This is not a contest about for making the best custom EU minifigs. This category will be judged based on how recognizable the setting and interaction of the characters is. Category B: Build a ship from the EU. This should be a ship that does not appear in the films but only in the EU. Exceptions to this would be ships owned by specific people such as Kyp Durron’s X-Wing or Ysanne Isard’s Super Star Destroyer the Lusankya. Other exceptions would be variations on ships like the Stealth X-Wing. Examples of ships that are only in the EU would be the Wild Karrde, the Sun Crusher, the K-Wing, TIE-uglies, etc. Category C: This category is all about the creatures of the EU. Build a brick built Ysalamir of Myrkr, a Crystal Spider from the glitterstim spice mines of Kessel, one of Talon Karrde’s Vornskr, a battle hydra used by Exar Kun, or any other creature from the EU. Alternately, you could use a creature already molded by Lego and create the setting from the EU in which the creature is found. You could build the wampa pack led by the one-armed wampa on Hoth, a Hapan horde of rancors, or other scenes. Rules One entry per member and per category. You can enter all categories with different entries, but you'll be eligible to receive only one prize. There are no size restrictions for any of the categories. The contest will run from 4th May to 2nd Aug, 2015. As long as it's still Aug 1st somewhere in the world, you can still enter. Entries posted after the deadline will be disqualified. This contest is open to all EB members, even if they joined EB after the contest has begun, with the exception of the Star Wars staff, who are not eligible to win prizes. All entries must be new creations, not posted anywhere else prior to being entered in the contest. You may be asked by a staff member to change your entry if it is too similar to an earlier creation. All entries must be built from real LEGO. No clone brands, no third-party custom parts. Digital entries will be allowed. All digital entries must use only existing pieces in existing colors. All entries must be posted as a new topic in the Watto’s Junkyard forum, the title prefixed by, "[sWEU] – category - entry name". (For example, "[sWEU] – Cat. A. - Jacen and Jaina’s Harrowing Escape".) A link must also be included in this thread for your entry to count. Post pictures no larger than 800x640, but you may link to bigger pictures. You may do a 'full-blown photo edit' with all the text, effects, background compositing, support erasing, and other effects on one picture. All your other pictures may have no editing other than color adjustment or background removal for a solid-color background. For obvious reasons, any photo editing that changes the shape, functionality, or color (not tint or adjustment, but actual color) of a LEGO piece is prohibited. It is also prohibited to use the Lego logo in any picture. All entries are considered WIPs (Works In Progress) until the deadline passes. Until the deadline has passed, you are allowed to change and improve your MOC. For each category, EB staff will choose the top 25, and then EB members will vote for their favorite entry among that selection. Prizes First place in Cat. A will win 75053 The Ghost First place in Cat. B will win 75046 Coruscant Police Gunship First place in Cat. C will win 75045 Republic AV-7 Anti-Vehicle Cannon

    [LDD] [MOC] The Eclipse

    A small model I whipped up in LDD in the timespace of about 25 minutes. Based on the Eclipse Dreadnought used by the Empire around six years after the Battle of Endor. Comments? Suggestions?
  11. Hello EB community! My entry for the SWEU Contest (Category: Starships) is the E-Wing Starfighter. Commissioned by the New Republic during the Thrawn campaign as a replacement for the X-Wing, the E-Wing remained in service until after the Yuuzhan Vong War. E-Wings were often carried into battle by Endurance-class Fleet Carriers, MC90 Star Cruisers and Imperial-II-class Star Destroyers. Since the NJO novels aren't eligible for the contest, this fighter is active during the Black Fleet Crisis, particularly the Battle of ILC-905. (from: Tyrant's Test) You can find details, technical specifications and reference pictures on Wookieepedia: Pictures: Link to the album: [EDITED August 5th, 2015: changed link from Picasa to Flickr]

    [SWEU] - Cat. C - Sh'tk'ith

    "Be glad! The joy that we bring goes beyond mere sensory happiness. Yours is the privilege of assisting the Ssi-ruuk in liberating the other worlds of the galaxy." ―Standard greeting broadcast to planets prior to a Ssi-Ruuk invasion. “Hello There..!” Sh’tk’ith was an Elder Male Blue Ssi-Ruuk who held much Power in Ssi-Ruuk Society Book: The Truce at Bakura By: Kathy Tyers For the sake of my fingers, I will refer to him as Bluescale Bluescale was a Ssi-Ruuk who along with Firwirrung (I didn’t build him, but I may in the future…) was responsible to study the captive human, Dev Sibwarra. Bluescale was a hypnotists, so he was able to keep Dev inline during his captivity. Bluescale, of course, has blue scales as part of one of the upper classes of the Ssi-Ruuk society. The nickname Bluescale came from Dev. Sibwarra killed Bluescale aboard the Shiwirr during the Bakuran Incident with a ‘paddle gun’. Main Front Backside Without the ‘Paddle Gun’ Detail Picture 1 More pics in the spoiler! Wookiepedia Link: Here! (No, I totally didn’t copy some of the text in the first paragraph. ) I really do hope someone else enters Category C…I mean other than that ship that’s in the wrong place of course… I think if no one enters category C, someone should move this out of the contest area or something, I just feel like an insta-win isn’t exactly fair but I'd gladly take a prize! I just contradicted myself, oops..., etc… Building Notes: The nose took ages, I went through about 10 different styles and ways of doing it till I settled on this one. I took various inspiration from various builders who build at this size for just a general idea of how to build at this scale. (And because I considered making a Dev too…) Also, I really wish those binocular parts came in blue, but they were the only way I could get 2 claws without making it super thick. The ‘Paddle’ Gun isn’t exactly the best, as I didn’t put too much thought into it, so please look past that fact. and I thought it’d work either way. Anyways, hope you liked this build! C and C welcome as always! Oh, wait, Bluescale wants to tell you something, I’ll let him say that at the end. ~Beltar “Good Bye!”
  15. Remember that ship that had two lines in The Truce at Bakura? No? Well here it is: The Tinok-F Patrol Cloud Car Manufactured By: Bakur Repulsor Corp The Tinok-F had two pods (duh) one for a passenger or gunner, and one for the pilot. It could fly up to 50 meters and could reach up to about 950 Kilomeers per hour. Usually only needed one to fly it, but it was good to have an extra navigator. Originally these patrol cars were unarmed, but when the Imperial Occupation came, civil unrest followed forcing the police force to equip them with armor plating and weapons. Governor Nereus insisted an addition of a full-spectrum audio and video sensor, including a scrambled comlink transmission. Imperial patrol troops also used these vehicles. Main Pic “A double-podded local patrol craft streaked out of the hazy sky and landed close to the Falcon, two Bakuran enforcement officers sprang out, steering a repulsor litter between them.” Pilot Pod…with Beltar Pilot Main Pic 2 “A double-podded security craft swooped toward him. He dove out of the traffic lane, into a canyon between tall buildings and groundcar ramps. His pursuer followed, firing erratically. Han braked, swooped into a narrow alley, then jinked an Immelmann up-and-over back out into the cany0n. Security sped into the alley, passing beneath him. Han didn’t see him fly back out.” Gunner Pod…yes you can see I forgot to change one part before taking photos…oh well… The Center Part with the listening device that Governor Nereus insisted on putting in. Backside More Pics in the spoiler! Here’s how the Truce at Bakura Sourcebook describes it: Patrol Cloud Car Cloud cars are the traditional vehicles of local enforcement agents assigned to control traffic in and around Bakura's capital of Salis O'aar. These double-podded vehicles are considerably faster than most airspeeders and quite reliable. While patrol cloud cars were unarmed when Bakura was free of Imperial rule, the arrival of Governor Wilek Nereus brought about much civil unrest. Faced with two armed rebellions and several purges, Bakuran police forces had no choice but to equip their cloud cars with armor plating and laser cannons. At the insistence of Governor Nereus, the craft were also equipped with full-spectrum audio and video sensors (for listening in on and watching suspicious Bakuran citizens), while a communications scanner is capable of intercepting comlink transmissions and detecting jamming and scrambled communications. Imperial patrol troops use identically prepared cloud cars, but they can also call on military airspeeder backup if confronted by an unruly mob. In any event, the bright yellow and red patrol speeders are an unwelcome sight to the many Bakurans who fear Governor Nereus. Wookiepedia Link: Here! (I didn’t copy a whole lot of lines from the page again… ) Good luck to all who entered this contest and I’m glad it was extended one day otherwise I’d have to have wrote this at 10pm. Anyways, hope you enjoyed this build! C and C welcome! ~Beltar

    [SWEU] - Cat. A - The Truce At Bakura

    I'm glad that MKJoshA added this to the book list. I chose what I thought was the most iconic scene from the book and incorporated as many details as I could from the pages such as the glass floor, the foliage on the walls, the two guards outside, the yellow jar of fruits, the Ice Mountain in the center of the table, and even the clothes that the people are wearing. *Spoiler Alert* If you haven't read the book, just look at the pictures from here, and the last couple lines that are not in italics. If you want a small synopsis the events leading up to this build, read below: The Truce at Bakura By: Kathy Tyers No sooner has Darth Vader's funeral pyre burned to ashes on Endor than the Alliance intercepts a call for help from a far-flung Imperial outpost. Bakura is on the edge of known space and the first to meet the Ssi-ruuk, cold-blooded reptilian invaders who, once allied with the now dead Emperor, are approaching Imperial space with only one goal: total domination. Princess Leia sees the mission as an opportunity to achieve a diplomatic victory for the Alliance. But it assumes even greater importance when a vision of Obi-Wan Kenobi appears to Luke Skywalker with the message that he must go to Bakura—or risk losing everything the Rebels have fought so desperately to achieve. Even as the Alliance arrives, the aliens have almost overcome the Bakura Imperial garrison, whose desperate commander will accept help from any quarter—even Rebel—against an insidious foe that enslaves Human minds to pilot their invincible machines of war and destruction. While marshalling the tattered Imperial forces, Luke, Han Solo, and Princess Leia must win the trust and cooperation of the Bakurans. For although Imperial Governor Nereus has granted the Rebels temporary amnesty there is the possibility of treachery among those whose first allegiance lies with the Empire. On the eve of the final explosive onslaught, Rebel and Imperial forces must finally come to terms with each other…or lose the entire galaxy to the hideous servitude promised by a victorious alien enemy. Capturing the sweep and excitement of the original Star Wars saga, The Truce at Bakura plants a seed of hope for peace, sees the formation of a timeless love, and stands witness to a Jedi's undying sacrifice to defend Humanity against an alien nemesis. My Version: Main Picture "They caught up with Leia at the entrance to a dining hall surrounded by interior trees with dangling, drifting branches. More vine-covered white stone walls enclosed the trees, and at their center he spotted a table that was roughly triangular, with its corners blunted for extra seating. Then he looked down. Blue-green water rippled beneath the room's transparent flooring. Underwater lights cast a small moving shadows of fish and an occasional long, snakelike creature. Finally, amid the table stood a miniature mountain range delicately carved from some translucent mineral and lit from inside like one of the rain pillars. Tiny blue rivers trickled down its sides." ... "Trees along the vine-covered walls raised their branches like arms." ... "Human servants scurried away from the table-he had yet to see a droid anywhere-probably having to rearrange seating to accommodate Chewbacca. Captison escorted Leia to a spot next to himself along one side, Madam Captison took the other chair on that end. An elderly man, wearing a voice box on his chest-Senator Belden, Luke realized-already sat next to her on that corner. "Just beyond him, dear," she told Chewbacca. Luke grinned despite his distraction. Dear wasn't a term he'd have applied to a Wookie." The Dining Room "Flanked by a pair of troopers in black uniform, Governor Nereus strode to the third corner of the table and sat down." ... "The liquid clung to the glass like syrup. "Go ahead." She raised an eyebrow. "It's not toxic Our finest local product. You're insulting Bakura if you refuse." She poured herself an equal portion and drank it down. He sipped. Liquid turned to fire and burned his mouth and throat. Then he caught its flavor, like intoxicating jungle flowers mingled with the sweetest fruit he'd ever tasted. Her eyes sparkled. Obviously, she hadn't missed a nuance of his reaction. "What is it?" he whispered. He cooled his mouth with a sip of water. "Namana nectar. One of our chief exports." "I can understand why." "More?" She reached for the carafe again. "Thanks." He grinned. "But no. That's a little strong for my taste." Gaeriel laughed and filled his goblet anyways. "There's likely to be a toast soon." .... She passed him a transparent dish of yellow-orange candies. "Maybe you'd prefer tasting namana fruit this way." "Habit forming?"..."All the best fruits in the galaxy are habit forming. Be careful."....He decided to leave the candies alone-... The Truce being agreed upon. "That [a message from an officer] was a personal communique from Admiral Prittick of the Fleet. You might as well hear it." His strident voice took on a knife edge. "His message confirms the Rebels' claims. The second Death Star has been destroyed, and Emperor Palpatine is presumed is Lord Vader. The Fleet is regrouping near Annaj." ... ..Governor Nereus shook his head. "Princess Leia," he said, standing up at his place, "if your troops are willing to cooperate with mine, under truce, we need your help." Leia's shoulders straightened. "An official truce, Your Excellency?" "As official as I can make it" That sounded evasive to Luke, but evidently it satisfied Leia. She stood and extended her hand. The massive bracelet shimmered on her wrist; it seemed to add the weight of many star systems to her handclasp. This was a long strectch for both sides, literally and figurativleyy. For the first time-ever-Rebels and Imperials would fight a common enemy together. Nereus engulfed her small hand in his gloved, meaty one. Then he lifted his goblet. "To strange alliances." Everyone follows...etc...needs cooperation....ect... The Dining Room 2 Side View The Imperial Officer who delivered the bad news.

  17. Hello EB community! My entry for the SWEU Contest (Category: Interaction) is the Tsoss Beacon Conference from the novel "Darksaber" by Kevin J Anderson. In 12 ABY, Admiral Natasi Daala called the remaining 13 warlords to Tsoss Beacon in the Deep Core in order reunify the warring Imperial factions. Among those present were self-stylized Superior General Sander Delvardus, High Admiral Treuten Teradoc and Admiral Blitzer Harrsk. When the warlords refused to cooperate, Daala gassed them and took command of their forces. You can find details on Wookieepedia: My vignette is based on this illustration: Daala reenacts a scene from her favorite movie: Goldfinger The Warlords don't match Harrsk, Delvardus and Teradoc because I didn't have better minifig-heads. Also, I placed Daala and Gilad outside the conference room because Lego doesn't make gas masks, I hope that can be seen as artistic freedom.

  18. This is my latest exhibition model, it was displayed at the Star Wars event in Legoland Germany a couple of weeks ago. For everyone missing it, I gonna show you these pictures. And you may read the backstory based on the comic "Crimson Empire". After Palpatine's takeover he built an elite exademy on the barren planet of Yinchorr, to train the best soldiers in the galaxy - The Royal Guards. Only the hardest could stand the training. In the year 4 ABY the Empreror himself and his scholar Vader visited the academy to put the recruit's abilites on a test. At he fighting pit named "The Squall" Vader was fighting against the best of class Burr Danid. Beating him was no problem for him, and instead of showing mercy, he pushed his opponent down the squall. Thanks for your feedback, greets from Disco
  19. Hello guys! I came up with a nice idea, let's see if it starts to fly or not... ;) What I had in mind was to create an awesome Lego-animation trailer about the Thrawn-trilogy (Heir to the Empire) that would be released slightly before the official Episode VII -movie in celebration of the new Star Wars -movie. The thing is that to make it to be awesome, all of the cutscenes should contain only MOCs. Also it should have many frames per second to make a smooth appearance. This apparently sounds very difficult and workful and so it is. Actually there is no one on the Earth I guess that would have all the necessary MOCs for the effort. So what I propose is to make this trailer as a team work. There are many highly skilled builders that have made some fabulous scenes or vehicles of the Thrawn-trilogy already. And of course the ones that could still build one scene in due time, but not all. If enough enthusiastic persons would agree to make this, all it would take would be to animate a very short clip or two by each individual from the scene they have built. You know what they are like in real trailers, something like less than 5 to 10 seconds maximum and cut to the next shot. Of course, there are a couple of key persons that should put here some more effort. - One would be the director (not me) that should have some experience on animating and leading projects. The director should also hold contact to the builders. - Script writer. I can help with this, but in such a big community, maybe here is someone with some professional experience actually? - A semi-professional editor would do good, too, because there should be some vehicles flying around. Then we would need the MOC-builders. Luckily as I said we already have some and I know here are many super talented builders/animators so this shouldn't be impossible. A couple of examples I know: Thrawn's Command Room http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=107447 Hyllyard in Myrkr Cloning Chamber in Mount Tantiss http://www.eurobrick...pic=101238&st=0 Vehicles: X-Wing, Imperial Shuttle, TIE-Interceptor, Speeder Bike, AT-ST, Probe Droid Vehicle: Y-Wing http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=84780 So, what do you think? Do we have the necessary enthusiasm and are there persons for this project in this forum? If there is something you would like to do, make a post beneath and let's see if this can actually work or not... ;D Personally I can help to make contacts with the people. And I can also provide a busy supply of detailed MOC vehicles. Imperial Star Destroyer and AT-AT on the way as next. -Samppu
  20. Here's another little thing from me :] Set Name: Shadow Troopers Set #: 75079 Theme: Star Wars Pieces: 95 Minifigures: 4 Year of Release: 2015 MSRP: USD $12.99 So... I went to the SMYK store again ;) found this set there so I just HAD to grab it. Also not really a bargain but I didn't care ;) Box/Instructions Standard, small box. I think it's the same size as for all the battle packs. The same with instructions. Nothing of interest here. Parts Set contains 95 pieces. There are two bags - one bigger one smaller. There's quite a lot of transparent red parts here. I don't think there are any unusual pieces here. We do get the beloved (by everyone ;) blasters here. Also set includes additional 8 "bullets" :] Minifigures I guess this is the main reason to buy the battle packs. Here we have 4 figures, all exclusive to this set. We're getting 2x Shadow Trooper and 2x Shadow Guards. They both look really nice. The coloring on the Shadow Troopers is very neatly done. It's somewhere along the dark-gray print on a black pody piece? It looks pretty neat + the helmets are totally awesome. The Shadow Guards look OK. They don't have faces, so the heads are one big red brick. They also don't have any printing on the back. As much as the characters are very interesting... the figures don't do them justice in my opinion. The build Well, the set is really small so the build took about 5 minutes. The vehicle tho is actually REALLY nice. I thought that this set would interest me more in terms of minifigs, but the speeder or whatever it is, is actually very neat as well. I really like how they did the front and the back of it. It can carry two minifigs and has two missiles. The competed model Not much to say here... just a small photo :) Overall opinion Small but very satisfying. As much as I don't care for battle packs I do care about the Empire! ;) Having interesting minifigs + as it turns out a very cool speeder. This set was not only a "meh" buy for me. Because of it's price, I'd say don't hesitate. Minifigures: 8/10 - Shadow Troopers are really cool. The Shadow Guards tho are a bit "meh". Parts: 6/10 Build: 6/10 Price: 10/10 Design: 10/10 Playability: 9/10 Overall: 49/60 = 82% P.S. I'm sorry for the dark pictures. I decided to buy a "no-shadow-tent" or whatever you call it in english tomorrow so maybe I'll have some better pictures soon.

    Hello! I would like to show off my custom X-wings. I first built Corran Horn's (Rogue 9) and I thought, why stop there? These X-wings are in minifig scale, so pretty close in size to the original one form 1999. Ok, enough talking. First off, all 12 together First, the ones whose colour scheme is described in the books: Wedge Antilles Corran Horn Tycho Celchu Gavin Darklighter Ooryl Qrygg And the ones that aren't, the ones where I first went off a picture on Wookiepedia, but then went into my own imagination. Asyr Sei'lar Aril Nunb Nawara Ven Inyri Forge. Trieds to go with a flame motif with this one. Bror Jace. Why Classic Space? Why not? Rhysati Ynr Riv Shiel My two personal favorites are Corran's and Tycho's.
