  1. Hello again everyone, This time I present 6 models from Season 3 of The Mandalorian! Let’s get straight into it shall we? GAUNTLET FIGHTER/TRANSPORT The Kom'rk-class fighter/transport, also known as Kom'rk Class fighter transport or the Gauntlet starfighter, was a type of starfighter and troop transport used by the Mandalorians and seen first in the Clone Wars animated series. This model initially started off being planned as a mod of the old official polybag of this set but turned in to a complete rebuild. Most of the parts have been used but a lot more have been added. The cockpit section and rotating mechanism completely replaced. That newish technic brick with the 1 x 2 plate attached was perfect for the attachment of the wings. I have also tried to make the colour scheme the same on the top and bottom of the wings, something the polybag didn’t do. I also like how the bar for the front cannons on the “Bar 1L with 1 x 1 Round Plate” pieces sit in the plate notches of the 1x2 wedge pieces on the front of the cockpit section. I have kept the classic white and dark blue colour scheme used in the animated series. I really like this model. Displayed with Bo-Katan. FANG-CLASS STARFIGHTER The Fang fighter was custom-built for starfighter combat, and the vessel's narrow attack profile and pivot wing technology could be used to achieve unmatched agility. This fighter again was first seen in an animated series but this time Rebels. I was disappointed we did not see enough of this fighter in The Mandalorian to tell whether they were still using the pivot wing which allowed the cockpit to spin much like the B-Wing but with the cockpit in the middle of the space frame and not on the outside. The official LEGO model of this also does not spin but I don’t think that really tells us anything as the designer was probably just given stills from which to base the model. My little model however does spin! It spins simply on an axle piece through 2 technic bricks on the body and can be turned by using the main engine assembly as a wheel. The curved slopes for the cockpit fit quite snuggly to the 2x4 wedge plates on the body so there is only a small gap. The new 2 x 6 wedge plates are perfect for the front fangs which are finished off by 1x2 wedges. Another thing wrong with the LEGO model is the position of the cannons which should be at the front. I have of course fixed that too on my little model. I have also used the same colour scheme as my Gauntlet rather than white and dark grey the LEGO set uses. Displayed with a Mandalorian Warrior. CUMULUS-CLASS CORSAIR The Cumulus Class Corsair was a type of corsair ship used by the Pirate King Gorian Shard (who we will come on to later). This model ended up being a little bit bigger than I would normally like to build but I really wanted to use those Modified 4 x 4 with 3 x 3 Curved Cutout pieces for the shape of the wings. The shape also needed the 2x6 wedge plates for the front section so before doing anything else the model was 14 studs long. I have used various inverted slopes to get the shape of the hull, switching between light grey and dark blue for the stripey colour scheme which is mirrored as much as possible on the top of the model. There is quite a nice little trick near the front where the two different types of 1x1-1x2 brackets are top and tailed (twice) and attached to the hull in the hole of the 1 x 2 dark blue technic brick right at the front. This allowed the 1x1 tiles and cheese slopes to be attached and create a smoother transition of the slopes on the hull. The stud notches on the 33 degree slopes also double as the recessed cannon emplacements (by accident). The engines were a bit of a problem as the two clusters needed to have 3 engines. It did not look right with 2 so I had to settle for using/stacking the light attachment plates and the bulb pieces as using a 3 plate long configuration of round tiles, for example, would have been too high and looked out of place. It is quite a nice-looking model and think I have got most of the features – there is even a flight deck with Snub Fighters (guess the next model!). It is displayed with a custom Gorian Shard minifigure. If only the yeti/bigfoot head came in green (no new mold required LEGO just recolour this one and you can give us a Gorian Shard figure!), or the Hagrid hair piece or any suitable hair pieces for that matter. In the end I got inspiration from my son’s now defunct Hidden Side sets and used the yellowish green hairpiece from those sets. The gold jacket is atlantean armour and the sash is just made from coloured paper! PIRATE SNUB FIGHTER The Pirate Snub Fighter was a type of snub-fighter that was used by pirates during the New Republic Era. A squadron of these was kept on Gorian Shard’s corsair. This was quite a simple build. I really wanted to use those inverted slopes for the front of the ship as they have stud holes on the back which makes them easy to attach to the hull. I also wanted to use those trans-black slope pieces for the cockpit after I noticed them on one of my old Ferrari sets and thought they were perfect for the job. There is a little trick with the wings at the back as they are angled just by using 2 1x6 plates and they are positioned against cheese slopes to get a consistent angle each side for those who are a bit OCD. I could have built a smaller model than this, but it is by no means huge, and a smaller model would have had much less detail. I also think the pictures make this model look bigger than it actually is. Displayed with an official Snub Fighter Pilot minifigure. QUARREN FREIGHTER A Quarren freighter was operated around 9 ABY by Shuggoth. This ship came under attack by Mandalorian Axe Woves' privateer fleet. This was not a tricky build, but I wanted to get as many of the ‘antennas/spikes’ into the model as possible. The colour scheme of the model was also determined by part availability. It’s a shame the Bar 1L with Angled Hollow Stud pieces do not come in brown (yet?) so the nearest colour I could use for the antennas was medium nougat. They are ‘fine’ but would look better if the model was all the same colour. The trickiest part of this was to try and keep the organic feel in LEGO that all MonCal/Quarren ships have. The build is basically just a stack of round plates with a wedge piece on top. The fin at the bottom is just attached to the main hull with jumper plates. The model does the job and is recognizable at the scale. Displayed with a custom Quarren Officer. MODIFIED N-1 STARFIGHTER This was originally built a while ago for Book Of Boba Fett but as it is a major ship in Series 3, I have added it here too for completeness. As we know a modified N-1 starfighter was owned by Din Djarin following the destruction of the Razor Crest (grrrrrrr!). Djarin and the mechanic Peli Motto worked together to build the N-1 starfighter as a replacement. When I first thought about a model for this I thought just changing the colour scheme of one of the official Naboo N-1 polybags would do the trick, but once I did that, I realised I wanted more detail. The model grew from wanting to use the plate with two handles for the guns at the front but to do this the wings needed to be upside down (as the handles are offset slightly below the plate) and so an idea was born. The front is inverted using brackets attached to a technic brick with 2 holes which also allows the body to incorporate the third engine at the rear. Flipping the wings at the front also allows the “turbo” to be added in front of the cockpit in the stud hole in the bottom of a 2 x 2 tile with 2 studs. The tail is attached using one of those 1x1 round plates with a bar. Overall, this was quite a tricky little build with a lot of parts interacting to keep the size and shape this small. A few flat silver and gold pieces are also added for detail and contrast. Displayed with Peli Motto, because you know, Mando is on my Razor Crest display. Let me know what you think.

  2. The Gauntlet was a Kom'rk-class fighter/transport owned by the former Mandalorian splinter-faction leader turned bounty hunter Pre Vizsla. Designed and constructed by the Mandalorian starship manufacturing corporation, MandalMotors, the Gauntlet took its name from the Basic language translation of the Mando'a word, Kom'rk. Equipped with powerful engines and twin laser cannons, Gauntlet fulfilled dual roles as a troop transport and starfighter, and was maintained by Vizsla— former leader of the Mandalorian splinter-group known as the Death Watch—as his personal transport during the galaxy-spanning Clone Wars. It was later owned by his son, who used it in bounty hunting during the Galactic Civil War era. The Gauntlet was a Kom'rk-class fighter/transport, and like the smaller models of the Kom'rk-class, measured 52.3 meters in length. Gauntlet possessed broad, angular, rotating wings the rotated to an upright landing position when grounded. The starship was also equipped with dual, forward-facing laser cannons located at the nose of the main body, and powerful engines that made Gauntlet one of the fastest troop transports in the galaxy. (not canon) owner info: After being proclaimed dead (Pre Vizsla faked his death at the hands of Darth Maul), and losing his title of leader of Death Watch to the Sith lord, Pre Vizsla escaped Mandalore on his ship, the Gauntlet. He fled to parts unknown, and had his ship repainted into a rusted colors of browns, grays, and black. Pre Vizsla held out for the rest of the Clone Wars on the desert world of Tatooine, hiding his ship in the bustling space-port of Mos Esiley at Docking Bay 93. It was around this time he found himself a wife, one of the refugees from the further out in the Outer Rim sieges. Her name has never been recorded as she died in child birth, but their son has: Par Vizsla. Around the time of rise of the Empire, the father went into business of bounty hunting, and Pre made sure to teach his son the importance of their shared Mandalorian heritage. When Pre died of old age around 3 years Before the Battle of Yavin ( or 3-BBY for short), Par Vizsla took his father's ship and armor and began bounty hunting full-time. He took this profession as a sort of challenge against Boba Fett, the "top dog" of the bounty hunting world, and another Mandalorian-armor wearing hunter. Their rivalry would go on for some time, until Boba was "accidentally" eaten by the Sarlacc. Par Vizsla then had to fight off several new threats to his "top Mandalorian" status, until finally being lost in the deep core chasing a bounty and was then termed MIA around the time of the Battle for Jakku.... though what truly happened to him and his ship will never fully be known. After all, he was chasing the Millennium Falcon! The cockpit seats two figures, one pilot / owner, and one bounty in handcuffs. The cargo area folds up, (and down) and can store a single crate. The ship, while landed, has the two side arms fold upwards 90 degrees. Builders notes: This model is a color-changed and slightly modified version of set 9525 (Pre Vizsla's Mandalorian Fighter). I liked the model, but not the color scheme, so I changed it to match one of the figures in the new Mandalorian battle pack (set 75267), who is going to pilot this ship. I removed the ability for the ship's cockpit to turn 90 degrees sideways while flying as I didn't like how it looked. The landing function still operates as intended, though. The story I wrote that goes with this model is 100% my own fan fiction. It has been inspired by the Clone Wars TV show and other bits of info from the Star Wars Wikipedia about various topics. Most (but not all) of the ship's info is straight from the Gauntlet's page on that wiki. (This model should be built in real life next year, hopefully by mid-March.)

    LEGO Gauntlet

    So LEGO Dimensions is out, and we're on our way. In Wave 4 of the Dimensions releases, we will be getting the Midway Arcade Level Pack: If you've been paying attention to the news, you'll know that this pack introduces areas based on many classic Midway video games. Among them is Gauntlet: Gauntlet was a great Fantasy Hack-n-Slash Dungeon Crawler video game originally released in 1985. It has been redone many times over the years. The original characters were a Warrior, an Elf Archer, a Valkyrie, and a Wizard: The reason that I bring this up is that LEGO currently does not have a medieval fantasy line. Lord of the Rings is all but gone (aside from what I can only assume are the final appearances of the theme in Dimensions), Castle 2013 has retired, and the new year will bring in a cyber-castle theme called Nexo Knights (which is expected to last a few years). In the meantime, there is no traditional Castle theme. What I am hoping is that LEGO will use their Midway license to produce sets and minifigures based on the Gauntlet setting. The characters are wonderful. The setting is wonderful. LEGO already has a relationship with Midway. It seems like a no-brainer, considering the lack of any other real Castle themes for the moment. It's not that I'm a huge fan of Gauntlet itself (I am a casual fan of the series, and have been for many years), but I am a huge fan of LEGO Castle sets in a medieval fantasy theme. I'm just reading into things in hopes that new Castle-like themes will emerge. What do you think? Is it possible? Likely?

    Idea: Fantasy CCBS Themes

    Quick Acronym Definitions: KKII=Knights Kingdom with the Action Figures; CCBS=Character and Creature Building System used by modern lego action figures; Most of CCBS has been strongly Sci-Fi for the few themes that use it. Most lego action figure themes were also this way. One thing that MoC'ers can definitely use and has a place for on the market is action figures in the fantasy or "medieval" theme. I have a few ideas for things that could definitely work and I would love to see happen. These could and should introduce new pieces for CCBS/Technic building systems for us to make our own creations, or just as cool sets themselves. These are in order of what I see as most possible. In each spoiler for them is a background on what they are and why they could come back. >Knights Kingdom III: >Heroica, the Action Figure Game: [EDIT: I am going to do a more developed writeup of this, the thread is too small and not focused on this new theme idea] >Gauntlet Ultrabuilds: >What I want from any of these ideas: New pieces of course! -More diverse medieval weapons than just swords (something KKII didnt do 'til its final wave but even then they were all still melee barring the siege weapons). Perhaps actual bow-shaped blasters that look better than Fluminox or Jungle Protector's awkward blasters with bows built around them. Maybe some functions for them to each use those weapons. Edit: -Another new piece idea: Magic staff weapons that act as blasters themselves and shoot some sort of elemental projectile that also sits in the staff like an ornament at the top of it. -More organic headpieces. So fall all constraction has given us is the robot heads of BIONICLE and Hero Factory. Also it is arguable that KKII's visor-heads could be included, but they look pretty bad without their visors. A CCBS-compatible head possibly in a similar artstyle to the hero ultrabuilds, that has a little more customizability than the ultrabuilds ones. Maybe a head similar to minifigs: have a head with the organic face and an axle joint hole at the top. Here you could put hair or a helmet or a hood. The ideal helmet would be made to fit on this minifig-esque head similar to other minifig helmets. It would cover the back of the head and part of the sides, but have a visor-attachment joint pair on the sides for helmets. It should also be compatible with BIONICLE 2015 masks that are also built in visor fashion to create new helmets or let someone outside of the BIONICLE line wear a mask in MoCs. -New CCBS Armor shell attachments with a more classic fantasy/medieval design. Current CCBS armor shells are just generic enough to be whatever. There is however, few styles of these attachments. BIONICLE looks like it wil ladd at least one for its style, but we probably wont see the kinds of things in BIONICLE that we could see in a Castle theme. They dont have to be just armor, what if your CCBS characters could have quivers for their crossbows or bows? Sheathes for new swords/polerarms? -Cloaks and Hoods. On rare occasions LEGO would include a cloak "piece" in sets (ie Vezon, Furno XL, King Jayko/Mathias). Short of do-it-yourself custom crafting this is the only way to "clothe" a MoC without using armor. A fantasy theme could bring in armor shells or attachements that are also more robe styled, but that wouldnt look as cool as a (Wizard/Druid/Ranger/Elf) with a cloak on their back as well. Fabric hoods vs full plastic hoods that fit on my suggested head piece would become a new debate similar to stickers vs printeds. -Female characters. This is a dangerous subject in a few ways. It is infamous for the fantasy genre to have sexualized female characters. Those (VERY FEW) that were in the BIONICLE universe did not really have this problem as much of a possibility with them being robots and all (although Roodaka sort of tested that pretty hard tbh). LEGO would have to navigate a really sensitive minefield, but I dont really see why that can't at least try to break the terrible 1:5 female:male ratio. I understand what constractions target audience is, but in part isnt part of the problem in selling to female customers alienating them from the theme before they consider looking at it? -Characters that arent robots. BIONICLE and Hero Factory are awesome, but you have to admit that there were barely any characters that didnt look like full-on robots. Even More New Pieces: -NEW FEET. We finally got new feet for CCBS in IFB. Before that it was pretty much either Piraka Claws or hero feet. This would be as good an oppurtunity as any to bring in new foot parts and break this stale building design. -New Hands. For the same reasons as the feet. Also, unless you are wearing gauntlets or other jointed gloves, the robot hands would look like robot attachments on organic characters (see every Ultrabuild). This is the perfect oppurtunity to fix that, with BIONICLE not really leaving space for this. (New Hands and Feet are probably more likely to happen in a series that isnt just one wave) EDIT: Updated HEROICA EDIT2: I feel like the Heroica idea could grow a lot more and I might add to it as the ideas come to me. This is mostly a speculation sort of a thing for me. I definitely feel like the Heroica is the coolest option and would probably go to Cuusoo with it if I had the resources and the know-how. So what do you think? Any ideas?
