  1. Hey guys, I just bought a used UCS Imperial shuttle from 2010 and I happened to notice that the stickers in the cockpit have the Star Wars Language (aurebesh) written on them. This is what was written in Aurebesh (Pictures, don't know if you can see the letters, I had to use a magnifying glass) But this is what the five stickers say: Sticker 1: front (Which has a picture of the ship from the front) Sticker 2: side (Which has a picture of the ship from the side) Sticker 3: Kurt was here and wrote Sticker 4: Adam made this model (Which is true) Sticker 5: Come to the dark side we got cookies
  2. I couldn't find one, so i'm looking to create a thread for "custom" lego stickers (and by custom i mean stickers on pieces other than their intended one.) I made a custom pallete of these, and thought it would be useful for others. Keep in mind, this was originally intended for personal use so some pieces may seem obsolete. But here it is anyway! If anybody else has any to share, feel free to post! LDD "Custom" Stickers Some Examples
  3. Hello everyone! As this is my first real topic in this forum after a few years of reading silently, I will say the following about myself: I'm from Germany, just finished the Abitur and I love cars as well as Lego (Technic), especially Porsche, and I will probably start studying mechanical engineering this year. Sooo, this project was a pretty huge thing for me in the last few months. As a huge fan of their cars, when the Lego Porsche was announced I knew I needed it, and got it early this year. When it stood in front of me on the table, finished, I already thought about how awesome it would be to mod the sh*t out of this monster. I started with technical modifications on the gearbox, adding working door knobs, gearing the steering wheel up to have a rotation close to 900°, filling some holes in the body and including Didumos' Ackermann steering mod. After various tries, I kind of rebuilt the chassis for rc use. While the servo was pretty easy to throw in (while it was tight and a perfect fit), the whole gearbox flew out for 4 M-Motors. While at first I had one technic battery box laying on top of the rear suspension cover, I soon changed this solution to having two train bbs in the engine bay. The gear driving the differential which comes from the motors required the fake engine to be moved down as far as it goes, but this gave me the possibility to keep it inside. Next thing to do was the lighting, which I did by using the cables of broken PF motors to connect 10 white 9V LEDS from ebay. I then continued to see something new to be improved everyday and fix this one or that one, until I finally decided (about 2 months ago), that it is time to move on to the real stuff. So i bought RAL 6019 (the green one), RAL 5002 (blue) and RAL 9005 (black), 1200 ml each, and just started spray painting the parts. I did the panels and small parts laying on a metal sheet, rear side first, while I did the liftarms by putting them on a string with the middle hole so they spin when being sprayed. While the most turned out well after the first few rounds of painting, some got pretty ugly when drying, which I fixed by sanding the parts and spraying a thin layer over it. While the parts were still drying and between the paiting rounds I already did the interieur - removing the right seat, changing the seat colour to gray/black, removing the shifter knob, replacing the old dashboard, changing the steering wheel to a more GT3-style-thingy, adding a fore extinguisher and changing the orange cage to black. I also ordered the neon-yellowish headlight bricks, which looks hella awesome at night or even more in twilight. At this point, technical improvements had all been made, I solely focused on asthetics. When I was finished with the colouring, I had to decide how I would do the stickers. After I saw the extremely low prices for custom stickers on websites of printing companies (about 200€), I looked for alternatives. I saw a YT-video with a technique I didn't think of till then which worked surprisingly well. All the stickers on the car are made this way. Finally, a list of all the modifications: - Full RC, 4 M-Motors, 1 Servomotor, 2 Train BB's, 2 IR Receivers with nearly invisible placement that doesn't disturb the looks - steering wheel upgearing - several body fixes - head- and rear lights, neon headlight bricks - spray painted bricks and custom stickers - change of the mounting of the rear shocks so they are more stiff to carry the heavier weight of the engine bay - (still) working and repositioned flat 6 despite the rc mod - interieur, wheel and dashboard changes - new centerlock wheel nut bricks (no RS anymore :D) - carbon fiber covered exhaust pipes, that front thingy panels (no idea what the english word is ^^) and - diffusor - chassis changes to make rc mod possible While these were all my own mods, I also used two mods from other guys: - El Squattore's working door knob mod adapted to the large shocks - Didumos' Ackermann steering, also changed a bit because I was missing a few of the bricks. Man, I can't tell how many times I thought i just threw 200€ into the trash by f***ing up some of the bricks when painting them, but I think in the end it worked out more than just well. :) There's probably a video/car porn coming as soon as I find time and a nice location for it. Anyway, thanks for reading and let me know what you think of this thing!
  4. With the reveal of the new UCS Snowspeeder today, I saw a lot of people complaining about the inclusion of so many stickers. I began to think about it, and found it a bit strange how the Lego community so adamantly hates stickers, since in other modeling communities decals are common place and accepted parts of the model building process. I've had some model kits before which include stickers and water slide decals, and choosing either or is optional. While it could be argued that water slide decals or dry transfer decals are even more difficult to apply than stickers, when done properly the results are spectacular and can even be made to like as if the decal was "printed." While Lego is obviously meant for kids and probably won't embrace more complex decal sheets, would having them as an option be something AFOL's would want to see? I am pretty sure plenty of Lego customizers are using them already, but I mean having decals such as dry transfer or water slide in official sets as an option for a more professional look than a sticker. I don't know if they would withstand rough play, but for an AFOL looking to display the model, they would be a great alternative. For those who don't know what a dry transfer decal or a water slide decal is, here are some examples of how they work: Dry transfer: http://www.ghostofzeon.com/diy/drytrans/dry.html Water slide: http://www.model-train-tips.com/blog/57/the-art-of-applying-decals/ Thoughts?
  5. Hi, This is not really about minifigs, but about stickers sheets, like the ones that appear in sets, I'd like to make some customs stickers, is there someone on the web that do them?
  6. I missed out on 10194 Emerald Night when it was released back in 2009, so over the last couple of months I’ve been buying the bricks for the steam engine via bricklink. I sacrificed the gold stripe round the boiler to keep it affordable (it halved the cost!) but now I've built it, I'm finding it looks a little bland without the stickers to add details like the engine number or nameplate. I'm a bit reluctant to buy a genuine sticker sheet for the set because they're so expensive on bricklink, especially when shipping to the UK is taken into account. I have seen custom printed replacement sticker sheets for various older Lego sets on eBay though (e.g. the Star Wars UCS line, and a few of the classic 9V trains from the 90s). Do you know if anyone sells replacement stickers for the Emerald Night?
  7. I've put together some decals / stickers / decorations for the most recent Star Wars Imperial Officers. I hope they come in handy for someone out there. Clicking on each of the smaller images below should open the larger versions.

I will update this post if I end up adding them. ...and here are the high-res render and decoration albums for the Officers and the high-res render and decoration albums for the Imperial Stormtroooper. Enjoy!
  8. My first proper go at a fully stickered GARC racer. I designed the engine first, then it took several iterations to figure out a body design that I felt suited it. The stickers took about three hours, then my eyes gave up but it's my first go so I'm really pleased with the outcome. Mostly the cut-to-size hexagon pattern from a Super Heroes Brainiac set. Here's the energy core which is mostly hidden from view. And here's the underside: There's more photos on my Flickr feed. Thanks for looking. Luc.

  10. Hi! I hope I am posting this at the right place. I just wanted to share a project I have been working on for the Lego Beetle. Basically, I have made improved license plate stickers, because I think the ones you get with the kit just looks awful. Before I print these for myself, I wanted to see if there is interest for a bulk print of these. I did set up a micro-crowdfunding which needs at least 25 supporters here: https://www.tilt.com...-for-lego-10252 Thank you!
  11. Okay, so I've got an uncommon Racers set with stickers on the parts. However, I want to use the parts, Technic panels, in creations, and I don't like the stickers. Is it in any way possible to remove stickers and store them in such a way that they could be reused? Or am I foolish for trying, and better off just getting a new sticker sheet if/when I decide to sell the set?
  12. Hello, recently I built quite a few Ninjago sets that all have a large amount of Stickers. I was wondering what your take on stickers were. I personally do not mind small stickers but I wished they would at least print pieces that require large stickers. I think a good example of this is the most recent NInjago Samurai Cave X. It has two large panels that need stickers. I also think that especially Star Wars UCS should not have stickers. That is just my opinion though. Does anyone share it?
  13. Hello, I was just wondering what methods you use for applying stickers and what would be the best. For example, using a craft knife over fingers.
  14. Hi Everyone, I went to BRICK 2015 over the weekend and purchased a set I have been after for a long time, Toy Story: Woody's Roundup. Now i bought it mainly for the MF's but there a quite a few pieces missing, most of which I can easily replace. My problem is the SHERIFF sticker is missing, does anyone have any advice on how I could an acquire a new sticker, seeing as its an old set? Or should I just accept I wont be able to replace it? Thanks for any advice in advance!
  15. Hi dear forum! How do you display/store your models? Do you keep stickers on or off? I havent been collecting for too long, two years now, and I'm not sure wheather I should keep them on or just have the bricks plain. Bought some models new and seal and some are used. A bunch of them has really bad sticker quality while others are looking nice. I guess value wise it is better to have the stickers on, but the models are way easier to keep clean wihtout them, especially the ones where the stickers are starting to give in. I could not think of any better place to get my questions answere than here. Thanks. Edit: I know this is more of a general question, not specified for Star Wars, but this is the only forum I follow on Eurobricks.
  16. Hi there, I've been looking everywhere for some high quality sticker paper for customizing minifigs. I'm seeing in videos and pictures everywhere that people are using clear sticker paper on minifigs, but they're not waterslide. I've searched all over the place, and I haven't found out anything about it. Not even the Eurobricks search function can shed some light on this! Anyways, I'm hoping to find some that are reasonably priced, high quality, easy to apply, and work with an inkjet printer. I don't really like the idea of waterslide decals because it seems to take a lot of skill and time commitment, both of which I really don't have much of. While white paper seems to do well (especially since you can't print white), but I'd prefer to use transparent (obviously I'd need white paper when I would need to print bright colors also, so yes, I guess I am going to need both white and transparent). I have been hearing a lot more recently about "labels". What are they? Is it just another name for a decal or sticker? Or is it literally using the materials that were originally meant for labeling for minifigure customization? Or is it something different altogether? I've seen professionals online use transparent stickers amazingly. TheCooperWorks and those old BrickForge decals from a few years back have proven that sticker paper is a suitable alternative. So please, if there any reasonably priced, high quality, easy to apply decals that work with an inkjet printer that you know of, I'd love to hear about it.
  17. Hello! I'm new to this forum and I joined because I think this could interest some builders: I recently bought an unopened 3225 set and was able to scan the stickers. I searched the web for a place to share them, but I didn't find any website that lists scanned Lego stickers. As I said, I'm not an expert concerning Lego-themed websites and forums, so I might have missed something obvious. Does anyone know of such a scan collection? Are there places where I could post my scan so that every interested builder can find it? Thank you in advance! Sadly, I seem to be unable to post my scan here... Maybe I don't understand the mechanics of posting on this forum.
  18. Help locating Stickers

    So I am putting together an Octan MOC and would like to get some official stickers from sets that have the logo or any other related designs, but searching for them on BrickLink is impossible without searching through every single page unless you know the set number. So my question: does anyone know some numbers for sets with Octan stickers? I would prefer stickers that came with clear backing, but any at all (any size, also) will do. Thanks!
  19. 8671 stickers

    Hi guys. I'm a big Technic and Star Wars fan so I never really post here. So my problem is that I've had the 8671 Ferrari sitting around disassembled in a box for at least 5 years. Just yesterday I remembered it still existed and I got it out. Unfortunately the stickers for that set had always been in a bad condition while it was assembled and now, 5 years later, they are in an even worse condition with many peeling and faded. So I was wondering if anyone had a scan or pdf of the sheet that they are willing to part with or if you guys know of any other method to get any stickers. This is due to new sticker prices for this set being well over 30 USD (http://www.bricklink.com/search.asp?itemID=60796&colorID=0 )and I'm not ready to pay that price. Thanks, Rishab
  20. Sticker Placement!

    I was admiring the perfect sticker placement on set 60048 Police Dog Unit. Someone has mad skills! I know this has been discussed but I'm thinking of trying fine line tape to get the perfect spacing and hopefully when I go to put on the sticker the fine line tape will act as an edge for the sticker. I'm just super frustrated with stickers. To the point I opt not using them more often then I do.
  21. Working on my MOC while I wait for my new pieces, ordered on 15 January , I thought something interesting. Stickers or pieces?, in my F40 build the lateral line and inlets with bricks increase its fragility and the number of pieces but make some stickers for those details would be nice, what do you think for your MOCs?. Example for the F40, build the front inlets and line with stickers not with liftarms.
  22. Apologies if this is in the wrong forum section... since I'm pretty "new" to current Lego fandom online, is there any place one can find scanned sticker sheets for Lego sets? As in, good enough quality to print and use? In particular, I'm after the sheets from the Alien Conquest series (now discontinued). I was thinking of scanning my own "spares", but didn't want to spend the time if someone had already done the work. I've been wanting to make new stickers for some of the ADU vehicles (Interceptor, Jet-Copter, etc), changing the numbers and markings on some of them, but need the images to edit before printing. Is there somewhere obvious I need to go look, or are sticker scans not very common? I could only find very old set scans in my brief searches online.
  23. I've recently started photographing a long backlog of MOCs. Here is the finished Wild Wild West train which took Best Train at Brickworld 2012: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjvZkYzK . The prototype can be seen here: http://wanderer.jame.../MAIN_PAGE.html The train is notable as it is built to scale using 1 stud = 1 foot taking advantage of figures with the long Toy Story arms and legs. It also features several excellent applications of structural stickers around the cylinders, domes, and on the coach roofs. - Brian Williams
