LOVE. I also like the ship in the second picture. As well as the stairs. I think this might beat Knight's moc.

Oh my goodness! That thing's hugeee!!! Hola Wow!

That speeder ship look really unique. Haven't seen something like that before. Smile

Also, how did you build the stairs in the second pic are they held together or just placed on top of each other? Wink

Maybe you would like to show us how you add Power Functions to an MOC? Smile

Good work! Thumbs up

Love the secondary mode. All kinds of details as per the usual from you. I enjoy how you gave the four towers a personallity of their own to distinguish them.

Not "Flawless", but still looks good. Wink

The ship on the Queen Quadrant is a modified version of the ship on the tail of the Rook Runner.

The stairs are connected. I was tempted to put a stud extra or two facing up having the minifigures walking on the stairs.

I missed taking a few pictures I wanted to take so I might be able to shot those plus some break down images.

The miniature chess set in the second picture made me laugh. The fact that this thing is massive and can be split apart into four different quadrants really makes this the type of creation you would see once and come back to several weeks later. Now excuse me, I am going to drool over your gallery for the next few minutes. Razz

Just so you know, there is a lot more to building LEGO than revolving it around some redundant TV series. It would be much more mature to let people build for the sake of building rather than building for the response of emotionally disturbed eleven year olds. Besides, look at the model itself rather than what theme it is based upon.

First of all, that is just plain mean! Mad Let's see you do better. If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all. Appreciate it for what it is worth.

P.S. How 'bout some constructive criticism!?

Second of all, great job! It is completely awesome, I wish I had that much talent. All Hail!

Again, great job!

Exactly. Hazard1998 if you have something negative/constructive criticism to say that's cool. It'll help me improve my builds. But just saying something is “rubbish” when it has more then twice the number of hits than any other MOC on my Flickr account, suggests that people liked it and wanted to see more details. And as Flak pointed out being able to post a comment is meaningless if you can back it up with some experience. For example I got some good feedback about the light blue trans pieces on the Queen from a member on FBTB that said he disliked how they felt ill placed. That's why we have the Guild. You know you're getting good feedback when a Guild Member tells you the positive and negatives about a MOC. Not saying that non-Guildies don’t know, but at least you know a Guildie has been building for a while (see age requirements for all members). For all we know you don't even own Lego. Wink PS: How do you think writers of new Star Wars books, movies, television shows, and magazines come up with new material?
