Hi All, First post here, so forgive me if this is in the wrong place, etc. I read through the 'READ THIS FIRST' posts and looked around a bit, so I think this is the correct place for these! I spent the last couple weeks on and off working on a set of Star Wars Micofighers, building, rebuilding, changing, stripping, rebuilding, tweaking, etc. After building several of them, I decided to create a custom set with unique color schemes and call them the "Shadow Squadron." (Also considered "Wraith Squadron" and "Stealth Squadron", but according to Wookieepedia, both of those were alternate names for Wedge Antilles' "Gray Squadron") Beyond that, I actually put a lot of thought into the types of weapons I had on each one as well. I have hyperlinks to Wookieepedia with explanations for each specific weapon. If you really want to read about them, feel free to do so! If not, by all means ignore the links =) At the very bottom of the post, I put an index of the specific piece and the corresponding weapon I imagined it to be. Sorry for this being a HUGELY long post. Wanted to get enough pics in to show it all! My internal goals were to have the following items factor into each: Must be able to hold a mini-figure Mostly Blue and Black color schemes Highlights in transparent red Place for two lightsabers to attach on each vehicle Blue or Clear wedge piece for the windshield Keep the same overall structure as the original Star Wars ships but modify the weaponry Regarding weapons, have a CONSISTENT rationale for why I used a specific piece for a weapon and keep them consistent across ships (What piece = a laser canon vs ion cannon vs turbo laser, etc) If possible, customize the design so it's not just copying an existing LEGO set with different colors Overall the squad consists of: Millennium Falcon (Custom design with lots of different features and weapons) X-Wing (Custom design and modified weapons; I tried to make it significantly different than the current X-Wing Microfighters available.) Tie Silencer (Heavily Modified version of Kylo Ren's Microfighter [Set 75196] with custom weapons) Tie Bomber (Custom design with slightly modified weapons) A-Wing (Least modified of the bunch, based on the A-Wing Microfighter [Set 75196], just updated colors and guns a bit) AT-ST with a Tiny Tie Fighter and Tie Advanced escort drones (AT-ST similar to [Set 30054], Tie Fighter similar to [Set 3219], Custom Tie Advanced) Here's the the Stealth Squadron on a stand that I put together. Individual pictures of each ship along with design/weapon details are also below. Fighter #1: Millennium Falcon Completely custom design Instead of the main Quad Laser Cannon, it has a modified Compact Superlaser turret One Laser-Beam Cannon on each side of the main turret (Sustained beams of energy instead of just bolts) Two front mounted ion cannons just above the jaws Diamond Boron Missile Launchers between the jaws Cluster Bomb Launchers on the front and rear (Clear round studs) Two Distortion Field Emitters on each side jaw Modified satellite dish with an Ion Cluster Bomb launcher (Clear blue round stud) Side mounted Turbo Laser and twin Chainguns concealed inside the doors (Used especially for ground support while circling a target - Think AC-130 style) Side mounted twin Laser Cannons just above the Turbo Laser Heavy Shield generator Concussion missile in front of the cockpit Diamond Boron Missile launcher with a Void-7 Seismic Charge attached, mounted on the back of the main turret. It can rotate to be launched forward as well. Repulsorlifts on the bottom for hovering Opening Bay Door with a Drone inside (Drone equipped with Laser Cannons and a Proton Beam Cannon) Detachable cockpit that can be flown independently (Equipped with two Laser Cannons, a Concussion missile launcher, cloaking device, and shield) Hyperdrive and sub-light engine as well as an Afterburner for sub-light speed boosts Four 90-degree swivel Laser Cannons on the rear corners Side doors open to reveal the two Chainguns used mainly for infantry support Opening the Bay Door to let the drone out Detachable cockpit turns into a speeder Fighter #2: X-Wing Custom Design Design, I tried to make is significantly different than other Microfighter X-Wing models A Turbo Laser Cannon underneath the front of the ship Two Laser Cannons just in front of the cockpit on the sides Ion Cluster Bomb launcher on each side of the cockpit Two front-facing laser cannons close to the body on the lower wings Two rear-facing laser cannons close to the body on the lower wings Instead of standard Laser Cannons at the end of each wing, it's using experimental Turbo Laser-Beam Cannon (I made these up, but basically think Turbo Laser with a sustained beam) Hyperdrive and sub-light engines as well as an Afterburner for sub-light speed boosts Two rear-facing laser cannons above the Afterburner Cloaking Device Heavy Shield Generator (Underneath) Hyperdrive and sub-light engine Attack Position Cruise Position Showing the adjustable Turbo Laser Cannon Fighter #3: Tie Silencer Modified version of Kylo Ren's Microfighter [Set 75196] Adjustable wings with multiple attack positions depending on the situation Experimental Turbo-Laser Chaingun (Front Center, yes I made this one up too) Two Proton Torpedo launchers (Flanking the chaingun) Two Turbo Lasers (Flanking the torpedo launchers) Two Ion Cannons (above the turbo lasers) Two Laser Cannons (Next to the cockpit Two Adjustable Turbo Lasers which also have modified Diamond Boron Missile launchers and are fully adjustable to fire up/down/sideways/backwards Four rear-facing Laser Cannons on the back tip of each wing Cloaking Device Hyperdrive and sub-light engine Repulsorlifts on the bottom for hovering Wings Adjusted to alternate attack position Adjustable Turbo Laser Cannons showing that they can shoot sideways if necessary Fighter #4: Tie Bomber Custom Design Twin Laser Cannons with Concussion Missile Launchers One additional Laser Cannon directly in front of the cockpit Standard Proton Bombs Heavy Shield Generator Fighter #5: A-Wing Slightly Modified design of the A-Wing Microfighter [Set 75196] Upgraded Turbo-Laser Cannons with Flash suppressors Proton Bomb in the back Swivel droid head =D Other than that, it's a pretty standard A-Wing Fighter #6: AT-ST with Tiny Tie Fighter and Tie Advanced escort drones Inspiration for the AT-ST [Set 30054], Tie Fighter [Set 3219], and custom Tie Advance AT-ST has Twin Turbo Laser Cannons with Flash suppressors Ion Cannon Dual Thermal Detonator Launcher Distortion Field Emitter Cluster Bomb Launcher Compact Superlaser turret Red Power Crystal Tie Fighter and Tie Advance Escorts equipped with dual mini Laser Cannons, rear-facing dual Thermal Detonator Launcher, and a rear-facing Laser Cannon, as well as heavy shield generators for ground troop support Weapon Index Compact Superlaser turret = Piece that looks like a Blaster/Drill Laser-Beam Cannon = Walkie-Talkies Ion Cannons= Lego Levers/Antennas Diamond Boron Missile = Black Cone Cluster Bomb Launchers = Clear round studs Distortion Field Emitters = Hinge Piece with single finger Turbo Laser = Round "Pin" Technic piece Chainguns = Axel "+" Technic Piece Laser Cannons = Tube connector Ion Cluster Bomb launcher = Clear Light Blue round stud Heavy Shield generator = Clear Dish Concussion missile = Black Cone Void-7 Seismic Charge = Clear Blue Cylinder Repulsorlifts = Flat Round Slider pieces Proton Beam Cannon = Lego Brick Gun with studs on the side Cloaking device = Clear Dark Blue 1x2 flat piece Experimental Turbo Laser-Beam Cannon = Long Lego Antenna Afterburner = Socket side of the Ball and Socket joints Proton Torpedo launchers = Clear Red round studs Modified Diamond Boron Missile launchers = Clear Red light covers Proton Bombs = Black Cylinders Thermal Detonator Launcher = Big side of the binoculars Red Power Crystal = Red Crystal Mini Laser Cannons = Small side of the binoculars Whew - Ok, I'd welcome your thoughts/comments!
Just want to share to all lego star wars fans my mini sized Death Squadron for those with a limit on bricks.(the executor is a bit too big in bricks but the right proportions in size) And the whole of Death squadron. The ISD Devastator that's all!
(Click the image to find this project on Lego Ideas) Well I finally got it approved, this is my Vampyre Squadron MOC It consists of five vessels, two fighters, a gunship, a tank, and a missile boat. I based the design on an earlier MOC that I came up with, an Imperial Ice Speeder, but as I know that Star Wars MOCs are very unlikely to succeed on Lego Ideas, I revamped (arf :D ) the design and eventually came up with these five. The Gunship The Strike Fighter The Naval Fighter The Missile Boat The Tank I did also make a sixth model, but as it's blatantly Star Wars based I had to exclude it from the final collection. It's a shame really as out of all the ships, it's by far my favourite. The Interceptor These ships are now listed on the Lego Ideas site, and any support would be greatly appreciated. Now, Lego didn't like me including this image, and I had to remove it before I could get my submission accepted, but I think it looks pretty cool, and I put a fair bit of work in to it :D. I know it's a bit cheeky posting this to try to gather some support, but as no-one that I know is in to Lego (just me) I don't really have any other means of spreading the word. Either way, opinions are welcome :).
