Jedi High Council Chamber
first of all a huge thank you to all the fans who have supported, encouraged and promoted me during these weeks; Also an even bigger thanks to all those who used this space to offer advice and solutions, I am grateful!
I'm back for a latest update.
I tried to find a solution for the location of the swords once the riders have taken seat in the Council.
You might think about a development of the columns, but I'm afraid to again increase the number of bricks ... So I thought of some minor modifications of the seats. This could be a possible solution...
I hope that at the end of this path you are satisfied with the result!
And now... May the force be with us!
Thinking about which minifigures could make this set truly original and attractive, I think should be included characters more or less crosswise to the trilogy concerned by the Jedi Council.
For this reason, confirming the initial idea to complete the set as you collect Jedi knights from other sets, I decided to consider these minifigures:
- Ki-Adi-Mundi as hologram, or any other Jedi Master already released - NEW
- Two children Jedi-in-training (Younglings) - NEW
- Mace Windu
- Obi-Wan Kenobi
- Anakin Skywalker
- One brand new Jedi Master - NEW
I hope you'll appreciate these proposals!
Improvements and ModificationsOn
I must admit that the speed to get by now nearly 9,000 supporters really caught me off guard. I had to quickly carry out the updates that I thought, and I can finally publish the result.
First of all, one of the primary objectives was to reduce the number of parts. With some changes I was able to get under 1,500 bricks, decreasing by about 300 pieces compared to the initial realization.
This rationalization was an opportunity to improve all the joints and avoid parts of the structure that were not perfectly aligned with the others.
Now the model is perfectly compact and without any looseness between the bricks.
Some comments highlighted the possible difficulties of access to the room, and it was indeed one of the most challenging studies.
I decided to lower the level of the surrounding structure without impacting too much on appearance, and I found some solutions that I really like from the point of view of construction and aesthetic.
Also the gateway has been enhanced by ensuring the best opening-closing functionality using smaller and more compact gears. The whole entrance block is now easily removable, with the aim to ensure greater playability.
Now I must quickly implement the ideas on possible minifigures and, if I have time, to some possible ideas for the so requested lightsabers
Stay tuned during the coming days!
Talking about... Holograms!On
The presence of far Jedi knights seems to be one of the most debated issues.
First of all, even if the result might look "nice", I believe that at least one hologram-minifigure could be the added value of a set like this, just as it happened for the mini-hologram found in the Imperial Star Destroyer 75055. I mean a real minifugure, not a mix of bricks like the one I made. It could be a generic minifigure or a variation of Yoda or Obi-Wan Kenobi (both "engaged" in other sets situated on other planets far from Coruscant).
Thank you all for the valuable advice, comments and most importantly, the enthusiasm! I really hope that this set can become another element in the wonderful world of Lego Star Wars!
Copying a wish that made me crazy: May the votes be with us!
