I have been considering the semi-new Rogue One sets for quite a while now, or at least since images were first leaked back in September. One weird thing I noticed however, it that some Rebel Trooper appears in promo images for both the "TIE Striker" and the Rebel "U-Wing Fighter," but only appears in box art for the TIE. I looked at the U-Wing on Brickset, which is one of my most trusted sources, but it has images of the five figures including the rebel trooper in some images and the pilot in others. Although I am fairly certain this minifigure is only in the TIE and not in the U-Wing, I just found this to be very weird and would love your opinions on this.
After seeing the U-Wing I decided to design one as it is such an elegant unique ship. In my opinion, the best feature is the wing swoop element. My design has fewer bricks a total of 504, unlike lego's brick count of 659. My main goal was to get the design to look aerodynamic, unlike TLG's chunky design. Because of this, I have had to sacrifice play features. However, the canopy does still function, the wings swoop at an angle and there is a ramp at the front of the ship for accessing the cargo bay/ troop bay. I might add functioning side doors in the future, and improve the structural quality of the ship. Also, I may create a UCS version. I hope you all like my design! Does anyone have any MOC requests? I have a lot of free time at the moment. Rendered using Blueprint.
