    Alright, here we go, folks! ;)

    Assembly is pretty straight forward and basically the same as seen in the Lego-Cylon thread. For that reason I will sow you the assembled parts only and skip presenting the flat pieces. There are fewer parts though because Twiki has only one accessory.

    Yep. Just look at the date the thread was started... It looks as if this figure was 2 years in the making... :eek: :nailbiting: :bag:

    Well, like I said, I am cleaning up my desktop and make room for the BIG ones..! ;)

    I still have to make the instructions and build the other two versions. Stay tuned, especially for the last one! :cool::D

    I have sent the finished kit to Piro and asked him for approval since I took some parts from the brick-style character kits he designed. It's a matter of courtesy. :)

    Lego is so sttupid of a company for not putting out a whole series based on Buck Rogers. They are stuck in the Lego Box they created.

    I sent them a letter, with a .dxf file, telling them I wanted nothing except to develop these kind of parts, so that models could be made symmetrically. They answered they do not take unsolicited advice, it was a very terse letter. What idiots! See pic below. The idea was a thin or full size solid block with pins on both sides so you could build models more easily. I though it was a good idea. Oh well Lego Rejection.jpg
