Now make a seperatist and rebel army.

They are both on my list of things to do... I don't have anywhere near as much Separatist stuff, but I'd like to get a shot of all of it together. The Rebels will be more difficult as it's split across all three original movies, so I've got original Star Wars/Yavin Base era stuff, Empire Strikes Back/Hoth stuff, then the Return of the Jedi/Battle of Endor stuff. I really want to do a 'Rebel Hangar' shot with all the starfighters, pilots, astromechs and mechanics... any suggestions would be totally welcome! :D

Yeah, I might do three versions for each of the original movies. And yeah, most of the pilots will be in all three photos :D

Whats your opinion on the crappy Overpriced summer 2014 sets?
Reply
:iconfranklando:
franklando Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2014   Filmographer
I'm not too excited about the new sets as I already have earlier versions of the Star Destroyer, AT-AT and B-Wing (some of the new minifigs are pretty cool though). I'm going to get the Cantina set = which looks awesome! And I'm also going to get The Ghost and Phantom sets (I'm getting super excited about the new Rebels animated series starting in October!) Some of the sets list for early 2015 sound pretty cool... here's the list in case you haven't seen it yet :D www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3foUr…

Nothing looks quite as menacing as the Dark Side army lined up, I'm working on my very own army but it's gonna take time with them constantly updating trooper type minifigs. 

To this day the very first AT-AT still looks the best. I'm considering buying the new one though although it doesnt look all that impressive, and the price! Never ever had the chance of ever buying the previous ones, so it might just be a novelty for my younger past self. 

What are your thoughts on the new old-trilogy sets that just arrived?
Reply
:iconfranklando:
franklando Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2014   Filmographer

Thanks! Yeah, I agree the original AT-AT is way better than the subsequent 3 sets... 99% of the time the newer versions are much better sets and are more screen accurate. The newer AT-AT in this shot has its legs mounted 2 studs higher than in the instructions in an attempt to make it closer in size to the original AT-AT... it's still a fair bit smaller in comparison.

I like the new 2014 sets, but I've already got a Star Destroyer, 2 AT-ATs and 2 B-Wings and I don't really have the display space or toy money to get duplicates. I love the new Mos Eisley set, the minifigs and new dewback are awesome, and I'm probably going to try and get the Hammerhead and new R-A7 minifigs from the Jedi Scout Fighter. I'm surprised they've redone the Stormtroopers, Snowtroopers and AT-AT Drivers so soon... I think I'll wait for Battlepack sets rather than trying to get them individually - I think that's your best bet for army building, it's certainly the cheapest way of doing it. Good luck! :D
