  1. After some tweaks and revisions to the model, Cavegod's First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter is ready to be released to the public! The MOC itself contains 1,691 parts, and its manual is 91 pages long. The MOC is built to match the scale of the UCS Tie Fighter released by The Lego Group in 2015. One of the big changes is that the wing color has been switched from white to Light Bluish Gray to better represent the true color of the wings. In some of the photos attached to this post you will see white wings, those photos are from the original model. It should be noted that this MOC can easily be converted into a standard First Order Tie Fighter by switching the red pieces to black. Lots of interest has been generated for this MOC, and Cavegod and I are really glad to make its release to the community! If you would like to build this MOC, we are happy to share it with you in exchange for $20. Included is the pdf instruction manual, an xml part list, LDD files, and any help you need throughout the process of making the MOC. For more information please PM me or contact me at chrdvorak@hotmail.com A rebrickable page with a parts list will be live soon, and will be posted here: {filler} Here are some pictures of the MOC and of the pdf manual:

    First Order TIE Fighters

    When I have had the basic TIE Fighter done I knew I also had the First Order design done, after all, it is only a matter of simple redesign and adding an antenna, right? Not right, as I have realised. First tricky question is: How many new TIE craft were introduced in the Force Awakens movie, hmm? The obvious hotrodesque red striped two-seater ship which Poe and yet-to-be-named-Finn use to escape? Like this? ..obvious... but wait: ...whaaaaaat? So yeah, there are, in fact, TWO new TIE fighters. And believe me, there are plenty of differences between old and new ships. What was meant to be a simple recoloring job and generating new instructions with few clicks, ended up being month-and-half job to do. I still believe it was worth it, though, what do you think? Much like original ships these two are commisioned builds as well and as such, have instructions available at BrickVault's website: https://www.brickvault.toys/ ...and also like before, a little movie showcasing the ships' quirks and features was produced: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JxQnjlg_tc&t=252s Cheers!

    MOC: Imperial/First Order AT-ST

    (Sorry for poor picture quality.) Decided to finally get around to posting my MOC/MOD of the AT-ST walker, with TLJ showing off the FO version of it. I decided to have both versions present,with the original model converted simply by adding a few new parts. The MOC is based off the walker that came with the Battle of Endor set, with a almost identical head, but with the legs being built with ball joints to create a more movie accurate look. This makes the walker far more posable and flexible, however it can be difficult to set up and quite fidgety. The legs can be held in place by 'stoppers' built into the side of the legs. Original walker and the 5 parts used for FO version. Ball joint 4x4 piece with Bionical joint. More shots of the FO version:
  4. Yes, ANOTHER thread with MOD´s of the Imperial Shuttle and First Order TIE. :) Well I thought I´d share these anyway. The Imperial shuttle is one of my favourite vehicles of the OT, so what started with a couple of tiles ended up with a couple of Bricklink orders. The wings are made in the same way as the top fin (and UCS wings). Bricks and Technic beams. The end result turned out very nice. The cockpit needed to be thinner when made out of all white parts. The designers of 75094 and 10212 used gray in a very clever way to make the cockpit look thin yet still hold figs. In my flickr there is a before and after photo of the cockpit during the mod. There is no room for a copilot anymore but the troop area remained unchanged. Alot of tweaks and rebuilds later I feel finished. There is room for improvement but at the moment i´m satisfied. b] shuttle01 by mordatre, on Flickr shuttle03 by mordatre, on Flickr shuttle04 by mordatre, on Flickr shuttle08 by mordatre, on Flickr And now the First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter 75101. Main differences are the now white wings and the inner spokes on the wings. The inner spokes are, as you know a problem since the first TIE Fighter released. I am satisfied with the solution I came up with using technic connectors and axles. I tried using longer axles but then they bent outwards because of the plates, so I used the shorter ones for a sleeker look. The top cannon got rebuilt to look more like the one on Hasbro´s model. I also extended the main body so the model is two studs wider than the official set. FOSpecialForcesTIE01 by mordatre, on Flickr FOSpecialForcesTIE02 by mordatre, on Flickr FOSpecialForcesTIE04 by mordatre, on Flickr There is already a great version of the standard FO TIE in this forum by user belkor. He inspired me to make my own. I based mine on 75101. I´m currently awaiting parts to incorporate the spokes on the inside of the wings as I did on my Special Forces TIE. Other than that this one is also two studs wider. FirstorderTIEfighter02 by mordatre, on Flickr FirstorderTIEfighter04 by mordatre, on Flickr FirstorderTIEfighter03 by mordatre, on Flickr

    FO Heavy Gunner Gun MOCs

    I think it might be wise to just go ahead and start a topic for all the incoming FO Heavy Gunner gun MOCs that will pop up, so people can easily find them here. So just go ahead and post any you made/know of

    [MOC] [MOD] First Order Transporter

    Hello Everyone! I have finally finished building my First Order Transporter, all from pieces from my collection. Took some time to find the fight parts, but I'm happy with the results! The body has been modified to be longer and hold more troops, around 8-10 depending on how cramped it is, or on what troops/weapons are used. Features all the same features of the actual set, but modified be be more movie accurate, such as the turret at the top. Also a good opportunity to show off my Megablaster for the heavy artillery trooper. Been waiting for the Rogue One Rebel Battlepack to come out so i can get that new gun piece to build this.
  7. So the new sets only seem to be available in Hong Kong thus far. I picked up a couple from Toys'R'Us, and have reviewed the first of them on my YouTube channel. I believe this is the first review of this set on YouTube. Not up to the professional standards of Jang and the like, but I hope it's useful for people. LEGO Star Wars 75166 Review - First Order Transport Speeder Battle Pack I'll build and upload videos of 75180 Rathtar Escape, 75182 Republic Fighter Tank and 75186 The Arrowhead over the next few days. Not picked up (and have no particular plans to pick up) any of the other sets.
  8. I'm glad that I don't need to put any spoiler tag below because I'm sure most, if not all, Star Wars fans should have watched the Force Awaken movie by now. Without wasting time let's jump right in my 6th RA review, LEGO set 75103 – First Order Transport. Overview Name: 75103-1: First Order Transporter Theme: Star Wars / The Force Awakens Year: 2015 (2H) Pieces: 788 Minifigures: 7 Price: USD 89.99 / EUR 99.99 / GBP 79.99 / SGD 179.99 / MYR 449.90 Resources: Brickset and Bricklink Introduction According to Star Wars databank: The First Order’s stormtrooper transports – formally known as Atmospheric Assault Landers – are designed for the speedy delivery of up to 20 stormtroopers to the battlefield for ground operations. A pilot guides the transport to its drop zone from an elevated cockpit, while a gunner protects the no-frills craft during its final approach. Here is the key information from the The Force Awakens Incredible Cross-Section book: Manufacturer: Sienar-Jaemus Army Systems Model: Atmospheric Assault Lander (AAL) Class: Troop transport Length: 17.83 meters (58.49 feet)* Crew: 1 pilot, 1 gunner, and up to 20 stormtrooper Weapons: 1 Sienar-Jaemus F-20 antipersonnel blaster cannon Affiliation: First Order *There is a discrepancy here. In Star Wars databank it is a little bit longer (18.05m). Now let's begin scrutinising the box, shall we? The front box panel shows 2 Resistance soldiers attacking (or running away from) the First Order Stormtroopers and Flametroopers troopers. Captain Phasma is shown here actively participating in the pursuit of the Resistance soldiers and firing her blaster -- something that we did not even see in the movie. The back panel shows the multiple weapons included in the set including 3 neon green missiles. The box is not shy in showing that one of the main selling points of this set is the inclusion of Captain Phasma. She is featured at the side panel of the box. Inside the box, there are 6 numbered plastic and 1 unnumbered plastic containing a sticker sheet & instruction booklet that is nicely done in perfect binding (adhesive binding). 4..6..5... LOL. I forgot how to count Build If you have read my previous reviews, you know that I do not apply stickers. I won't make an exception here so I will point out right now that there is one key part that could really use the sticker but I decided not to put the sticker anyway. Now that it is out of the way, here's the instruction booklet unwrapped from the plastic bag. Bag #1 Let’s begin by pouring out the content of bag #1. It contains 2 first order Stormtroopers -- always welcome to have more. I will get into details of all minifigures in the latter section; just know that we have 2 Stormtroopers here. There’s also a brick separator included. We start by building the skeletal frame of the transport. Several technic beams provide the mechanism for the seat that swivels the seat up and down when you twist the light bluish grey 2x2 round brick found at the side. Bag #2 After adding the content of bag #2, we now have a trapezoidal shape that resembles the actual shape of the final build. I know from the start that this vehicle uses a lot of SNOT techniques so the angled plates (brackets) are not surprising. However, what caught my attention is the use of 2x2 trapezoid flags to create the shape of the heat exchanger fins. I enjoyed stacking these flag pieces with the modified tile with clip because I had no idea what they were when I was building. After I finished bag #2, only then I realised that these are the heat exchanger fins. I like how it resembles the model very well. Bag #3 Bag #3 includes the 2 rebel soldiers and lot of grey parts that will cover the sides panels of the transporter. This small build is the terrain sensor module. The 2x2 round tile is supposed to be the atmospheric processing and life support system. For something so peculiar, the designer managed to capture this much vehicle function that could have easily been ignored or omitted. I am happy with its faithful representation to the actual model. Not everything is presented well, thought. I noticed something that did not match up quite well from the cross section reference book. The location of the landing gear compartment looks off because the dark bluish grey wedge part (which I suppose represents the landing gear compartment) should be positioned further back, near the engine area and not before the terrain sensors. Apart from this, the build looks fantastic thus far. Bag #4 We are more than halfway building. Bag #4 adds the engines at the rear end of the transport. You can find the only interesting & uncommon part in this bag also -- the Trans-Clear Technic Wedge Belt Wheel (Pulley) which very hidden from the picture I have taken below. I will spend more time about the under chassis of this transporter later to talk more about that piece. From what appears like an amphibian tank, now the vehicle looks more like a flying amphibian tank with ion engines. Enjoy the naked rear view of the ion engines. Bag #5 This bag is are all grey parts. Try to spot where Captain Phasma is. Bag #5 adds the pilot cockpit and the cover near the tail of the spacecraft, including the hatch covering for the gunner. I will explore the pilot cockpit further later on. For now, take note that a minifigure can fit snugly inside. What I want to highlight here is the pilot viewport (windshield) that comes in light grey 2x4 tile. It is the key part that needs sticker in this set and I a little bit frustrated why it has to be light bluish grey in colour. Hear me out. I am not just rambling here. You are supposed to put a black sticker on the light bluish grey tile to make it appear like a darkly-tinted window. If you don't apply the sticker then it will appear like a grey slab of concrete or metal obscuring the pilot's view. I don't know what the designer was thinking when he/she made this decision. It looks odd to me. Why can't it be just a black 2x4 tile? There is an existing colour for that element after all. The sticker could provide the grey border as well as the faux-glass shine effect easily. Despite its ugly appearance in grey, I did not put the sticker on as I can easily replace it with a different coloured piece later on. Bag #6 Finally, we are at the last bag. Two Flametroopers are included in the plastic bag. In total, there are 7 minifigures included in this set. The final bag adds up the removable top cover to the transporter. Completed build: Armed and ready Claustrophobic Pilot cockpit There is no pilot minifigure included but you can just imagine that a Stormtrooper can do the job just fine. The minifigure is confined in a very tight space. The First Order clearly does not care about pilot ergonomics in the AAL. Next to the pilot viewport, the hatch cover allows you to put a gunner to operate the 2 studs shooters. The gunner can play peekaboo with the Resistance soldiers. The rendition of four SJAS-210 sublight ion engines looks great with those trans-blue 1x4 tiles. The SNOT technique is vital to achieving this shape and it works very well. One inaccuracy, however, is that the upper pair of ion engines should be slightly smaller than the pair of lower ion engines. Not really a big deal. However, if you wish to fix it then you have to use 1x2 and 1x1 trans-light blue tiles as there is no 1x3 trans-light blue tile. Quite troublesome. If you ask me, I'm not even going to bother. It looks okay. Now let's talk about the under-chassis. From the view above, it appears that the AAL is completely touching the ground without any landing gear but it is actually touching the ground ever so slightly with 4 transparent wheels. I don't think it is meant to "cheat" anyone into thinking the vehicle hovers because I don't believe AAL could hover. It is just an added play feature so that kids can move it around easily. I let my son play this for a while and his instinct is to push it like a typical land vehicle. It is not very swooshable so it's the best they can do, in my opinion. The designers didn't have to use transparent piece though. Even if the wheels were black or any colour, I don't think they will be visible because the ground clearance is so low that shadows can easily conceal them. From the bottom of the transport, we move in front to talk about the exit ramp. I like the mechanism that opens and closes the exit ramp. The mechanism allows you to open and close the ramp simply by pulling and pushing the technic axle and pin connector protruding at the rear end. The brilliant technique also prevents the ramp from freely falling down once you close it. It stays closed when you close it. The ramp actuators are just there for decorative purpose only as it is only attached to the ramp but not at side walls. Aside from the exit ramp, you can also access the interior of the transporter by removing the top cover. The top cover is only attached to 4 studs on top so it can be removed easily. With the top cover open, you can assemble your Stormtroopers to make sure they are ready for action. From the picture above, you can only fit 11 Stormtroopers at most (only 8 if you strictly follow the two-abreast formation). Now is a good time to segue on the scale. I am not even going to challenge that it is minifigure-scale. It is not. Perhaps a decision was made to save on the number of pieces or the dimension was only made on rough estimation based on concept arts. Either way, the proportion is wrong. It comes close relatively in height and width but the length is just short for a Stormtrooper, I mean transporter. Relative to the scale of other Star Wars vehicles, in the Poe Dameron issue 0001 comics, there is a panel that shows the size of AAL relative to the FO TIE Fighter. Clearly, AAL needs to be about as long as 3 FO TIE fighters. Parts I don't have any special parts to talk about but I want to briefly mention how cool it is to get these many different blasters in one set. Of course, I won't forget the extra parts beautifully arranged for your reference. Minifigures In this set, we get 2 Resistance soldiers, 2 Stormtroopers, 2 Flametroopers and Captain Phasma. I would have liked it better if there is 1 more Stormtrooper instead of having an extra Flametrooper because frankly who likes to build armies of Flametroopers? I personally don't know anyone. Fun fact: Don't you know that there is only 1 female Resistance Soldier torso available and it is only found in this set? The face used for the female Resistance Soldier is also the same face used for Toryn Farr in set #75098 (Assault on Hoth) and Clara Oswald in set # 21304 (Doctor Who). Front view Back view Front view – without hair, head gears and accessories Back view – without hair, head gears and accessories By now all Star Wars fans should be used to getting angry clone trooper headpiece. What's interesting here is that Captain Phasma got a black headpiece instead. Honestly, if the Stormtroopers and Flametroopers get a plain black or flesh headpiece I won't mind either. Fun fact: the printing on Captain Phasma's torso and legs are exactly the same as the standard stormtrooper for the black outlines. Some of the grey outlines were replaced with silver plaint and very minimal additional printing on the chest. All in a day's work Somehow the fuel thanks on these Flametroopers don't register as fuel thanks in my head. For some reason, they look like big marshmallows to me. Look, they even provided the sticks. Conclusion To me, the highlights and lowlights of the set can be summarised by these pictures: I really enjoyed the construction of the heat exchanger fins and the overall details at the side of the transporter and its engines. On the downside, after reviewing some of the pictures I have taken I also noticed that there are some tan parts that are not fully covered. From certain viewing angles, it looks unfinished. Replacing the tan angled plates (brackets) with grey colour can easily fix this. Usually when I see different coloured parts like this which is far from the main colour palette of the build, it is to help younger builders to distinguish the parts needed more easily. It's not really a problem, so to speak. Of course I also mentioned about the length of the transporter which should be much longer. However, I think for the amount of minifigures you get and overall volume of the vehicle I feel that the set designer was able to achieve balance of playability and overall build quality. In conclusion, the value of this set is more than just the inclusion of Captain Phasma. Before getting this set I was fixated that I will be getting this set so that I can get Captain Phasma. Then, I realise that Captain Phasma is just the icing on top after I finished building the set. The build is very enjoyable. AAL is also a very recognisable vehicle that appeared in many Star Wars media, including video games, animated shorts, and comics. Speaking from experience, I really should have bought this much earlier. Get ready to rumbleeeee!! Walk out like a boss Review summary Playability: 9/10 - Kids will enjoy rolling this like a tank. They can role play as Stormtroopers in a mission with all the play features included. Design / Building Experience: 8/10 - I really enjoyed the build and techniques used but some design decision could have been better (stickers, proportions, tan angled plates). Minifigures: 9/10 - Phasma was overhyped, true -- but getting 7 minifigures is quite generous as more expensive TFA sets had less. Price / Value for money: 8/10 - TFA sets were a little overprice for my taste but once 30% discount is available I immediately grabbed this set. Overall: 8.5/10 - Should have bumped this up on my priority list but in the end, all is well. I enjoyed this very much even if I got this set late. Next Stop: Jakku

    [MOC] First Order Defense Turret

    I built this first order turret with 2 of the first order battle packs https://www.flickr.com/photos/149543077@N08/albums/72157682451798215
  10. Welcome, to my listing! This listing is for a minifigure scale First Order Snowspeeder. The model was designed by @TheBrickBuilder14 and I have his express permission to sell the model. I built this a few months back with 95% new bricks, this cost me just over £35 to Bricklink. I am selling the model for £28 including postage. You can find the LXF here: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/118717-moc-first-order-snowspeeder/. The model has slight modifications and a single substitute two 1x1 black bricks on the bottom instead of two dark gray 1x1s this sub is not visible. If you would like to purchase this please email me at: eclayforth@outlook.com
  11. Hi All, Since my shelf with the FO TIE is unbearably airy, I've decided to have a go at a sort of docking bay like seen in the movie briefly on the Finalizer. While that actually should be a conveyor belt, this is a much simpler design, so while it's not an architectural masterpiece, I think it will do the job. It only exists in digital form yet on Mecabricks, as my priority will be to build the Endor diorama I'm planning. Here's a link to the model if anyone would like to take a closer look, obviously it's WIP, I would take any criticism and suggestion thankfully. I would upload pics but that's basically impossible on this forum without it being potato quality, and for some reason the insert from URL doesn't work either, so you'll have to check the link above.

    [MOC] First Order Transporter

    This is my first complete piece that I have made as an adult. LOL. Woo hoo! I won't have a brick count until I dismantle, but it is huge. 54 studs long x 20 studs wide, almost as long as my arm. It can carry up to 24 men tightly, 16 men loosely (pictured). The heavy weapon can be dismounted and placed on field mount if tactically useful. The searchlight on the front can rotate a full arc.
  13. First time poster here with a custom build I did based on tramcars that I've seen in the past. I've always liked the look of these and I wanted to design one that looked a bit more bold. I came up with this design in LDD and built it to keep rowdy citizens in my Lego city in line! It runs on standard Lego train track and I made it flexible enough to handle tight turns and bumps in the track. Each passenger car can hold 4 minifigures (a driver and 3 troopers).

  14. Hello Star Wars community, I am proud to present you my entry for the first round of this years Star Wars MOC Olympics on ImperiumDerSteine. It is the first time that I take part in the contest, because normally I am not so much into Star Wars but this year I try to progress as far as possible for a mainly Castle-builder. We will see how it turns out. Our task was to build a Micro-Fighter of our choice, so I decided to recreate the First Order Transporter, also known as Atmospheric Assault Lander, or like rolli says a giant vacuum cleaner. I tried to include all the little details that are important for a Micro-Fighter, it should be stable enough that children can play with it and some play features should also be included.

    [LDD][MOD] Kylo Ren's Upsilon-class Shuttle

    Huge fan of LEGO's model for Kylo Ren's Shuttle, 75104, but as many fans as well, I was very disappointed that the ship's wings did not fold out. I was also a little disappointed that the color did not completely reflect that of the ship as seen in The Force Awakens. So of course I decided to add the missing features and improve the color, as well as change some other attributes. Finally finished my LDD rendition. What do you all think? I also listed some other changes I made on MOCpages, if you want to check them out.

    [WIP] Starkiller Base

    Hello all! I'm sure just about all of you have seen The Force Awakens now... in The Force Awakens, the scene that I wanted to most create in lego was the Starkiller Base speech scene, with all the Stormtroopers and Officers in the crowd, and General Hux presenting his speech prior to the destruction of Hosnian Prime. Note, I will update this as I have more progress. I've been working on this for a couple of weeks now, and I'm pretty happy with the outcome so far. But no where near done, in fact i'd say it may be only about 10-15% done at the current state. I'm going to make this HUGE. Now, instead of getting the majority of the big lego star wars force awakens related, but rather I've mainly been getting a lot of the Battlepacks that came out somewhat recently, and I plan to replicate that scene the best I can, with tons of baseplates, tons of minifigures.. Well it's not all planned out yet, but let me show you what I have so far. I'm sure others have thought about or are even doing the very same idea, and I also look forward to seeing some other versions out there at a later time. So, here it is so far. "Today is the end of the Republic! The end of a regime that acquiesces to disorder! At this very moment, in a system far from here the New Republic LIES to the GALAXY while secretly supporting the treachery of the loathsome Resistance. This fierce machine which you have built, upon which we stand, will bring an end to the Senate! To their cherished fleet! All remaining systems will bow to the First Order! And will remember this... as the last day of the Republic!" ―General Hux Starkiller Base, Update by Brick Capone, on Flickr Starkiller Base Updates by Brick Capone, on Flickr image by Brick Capone, on Flickr I found the all plain white at the back of the base a bit boring, so I decided to add a Starkiller Base hallway with a bridge overhead like you see in the movie. Anyway, tell me what you think for now, and we'll see what it looks like at the end, which will be in a long time.
  18. Here´s a small review of this set. Set no: 75132 Pieces: 88 The long wait is over and The Force Awakens finally have had it´s premiere. I really liked the Movie but won´t put any major spoilers in this short review. Pardon my pictures with bad lighting but it´s dark around the clock in Sweden at the moment. This set comes in a box, you already know how the box looks so no need to take a photo of it. Inside there are 2 bags and a booklet. The larger bag contains figures and most parts for the turret cannon. A small build but many useful parts, at least for me. 7513201 by mordatre, on Flickr The four heads have no alternative print on backside. Nice to get a brown head in a cheap set. 7513202 by mordatre, on Flickr Minifigparts. Many would like to see the crew minifig replaced with another standard storm trooper, and since the First Order Crew aren´t featured that much in the movie I agree. However I believe we´ll see more of them in the upcoming movies and it´s not like anyone have an army of them already since the figure is fairly new. The heavy gunner features new print on front and back of torso. This figure is quite common on screen and I really like this fig. I have not built my own heavy blaster for him yet though. First order Officer (?) features a new hat that is clearly seen in the movie. Very accurate figs indeed. 7513203 by mordatre, on Flickr 7513207 by mordatre, on Flickr 7513208 by mordatre, on Flickr 7513205 by mordatre, on Flickr 7513206 by mordatre, on Flickr If Lego would have included a red banner like the one I made below, it would have been the icing on the cake for this set. :) 7513209 by mordatre, on Flickr The small bag contains some assorted small parts and I can finish the turret build. The turret has a stashe for ammunition and a control panel. There are loads of turrets in the movie so the choice to include it in this battle pack seems very legit. Look really nice as well although a bit small. 7513204 by mordatre, on Flickr 75132010 by mordatre, on Flickr Complete set. 7513211 by mordatre, on Flickr I find this battle pack to be very good and I will end up buying more than the ten I had planned. Cheers/mordatre
  19. Well,was playing around with my new SW Battlepacks.Left the Table for a few Minutes and was alarmed by the Sound of crashed Bricks....The Minifigs from both Packs can`t stand each other and the Rebels crashed their Speederbike in the newly build little Laser Tower of the First Order.They were so proud of the new Tower which is now reduced to a Pile of Bricks... After a little Debate they agreed each other to help repairing the Damage....and this is what happened: Boom...The Speederbike crashed right through the Lasertower Base.... Did someone wrote down the Licenseplate of this Hooligan? Bullseye!! "Okay,calm down Guys,just grab the Instructions and we will rebuild it" Ha,Rebels and FO working together!! Anyone knows where this Plate needs to go? Wait,i will look for it! We found a Brickseparator,just in case you need one. Okay,the Laser is almost done,let`s have a Look at the Bike....well,needs some fixing too.
  20. Here is my modified version of the 75103 Lego First Order Transporter. First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr This transport barge is 6 studs longer than the original set. And there is more. First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr I tried to bring a pure studless look to the transporter and this increases the sense of robustness of the barge. First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr I also added a few extra details here and there to break the monotonous aspect of the barge hull: extra grids or bars for example. The side propulsors have been "massified" with some extra details and element that render like extra armor. First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr The apparent technic beams at the rear have been hidden. First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr I removed the spring shooters and replaced the dual stud shooters by a good old E-web for the Empire' sake. The E-web can rotate left, right and up. First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr The rear hull section has become a small platform that can hold some equipment or people when landed. First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr Regarding passenger capacity, it has been increased from 9 to easily 14, including the weapons of the 14 troopers. It can also accommodate a speeder and its crew. First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr The playability has been respected and this is why some studs are still apparent, mainly inside or on the opening front door. I hope you enjoy it! Now I merely need to add a sea, a beach, a bunker and some dying rebel scum! :)

  23. On May 4th we startet a contest in our Star Wars LUG ImperiumderSteine.de asking for MOCs based on what we've seen from Episode VII so far. I never though I'd enter, I'm finishing college in three weeks and with assignments and hand-ins and all time was sparse. I couldn't stop thinking about it though and I wanted to prove that you need no Episode VII minifigures to do something cool. I also had to prove wrong some friends of mine that complained that I never do Star Wars creations I'd like to present a garrison of Episode VII stormtroopers rallying in front of the iconic banner of the First Order on some outpost in the snow: I'd like to thank Ryan / Eldeeem for the hexagon design he posted on flickr years ago that I used as a base for the banner. I hope you like it. Looking forward to your comments and criticism! Best Markus
