2019 Parts Fest #2: Tim Goddard's Star Trek & Star Wars

Back to the Parts Festival today – yes, we have lots more LEGO® inspiration for you yet, even some new faces! – but it is Tim Goddard's turn again today, following his recent collection of bots and a hover racer, and other tablescraps

USS Enterprise

We start with the spacey franchise Star Trek. Possibly my hardest model ever to photograph.


I knew I had to make a micro USS Enterprise as soon as I got my hands on the 4x4 round with 2 studs. 

The "Parts Fest Count" (PFC) is 2 pieces.
 It was tricky not to make the whole thing look too bulky but I am happy with the result.

IG-88

Coming to the Star Wars universe and returning to the Batman accessory bags, I wanted to capture to tall lanky nature of the bounty hunting droid.

PFC, 5
But what is that boring base he is standing on?

PFC, 6
The base uses the window/airlock piece, Brick 1X6X4 1/3, W/ 4.85 Hole, No. 1 in Dark Stone Grey/ Dark Bluish Gray (6263879 |9699). It is surprisingly useful as a SNOT piece, and with some Technic half-pins a 6x6 tile attaches just perfectly.

Millennium Batman Bits

Whilst we are in the Star Wars universe I will share this picture from my recent 1:72 scale Millennium Falcon model. This was built before the Parts Festival but uses one of the round parts from the lesser of the two Batman family bags - Mini Accessory, No. 10 in Silver Metallic/ Flat Silver (6266155|40598).

PFC, 1
Here's the full beast!


Upcoming Preview

You want more? Well, there is more to give! I am working with New E newcomer Mansur Soeleman on what will hopefully be an epic Parts Fest collaboration.

PFC: AT-TE, 19. 3x AT-RT, 3. Base, 26
Here is a teaser: Mansur came up with the idea for a Clone Wars scene on a coral planet at trophy fig scale and the design for the AT-TE legs, and I came up with this. Hopefully it is going to get quite a bit bigger.

  2. To boldly go where no minifig has gone before.

  3. So is the mixing of old and new grays in the Millennium Falcon a deliberate attempt to create a weathered, worn look or a necessity due to part distribution?

    1. It is deliberate to give it that piece of junk look ;)
