Let's say you have a Lego X-Wing and a Lego Tie Fighter model that both arrived at the same time (from Amazon UK where they are currently 20% off).

Which one do you build first?

I like Simultaneous but

A. I don't have the table space really
B. I was thinking of doing one this week and one in a later week.

I'd definitely start with the Tie to leave the best for later.

Be creative - go for a Tie Wing.

Would that be a tie fighter with retracting wings?

Funko
02-04-2012, 15:10:47
Tie Xperimental.

it is big, but there's not a lot of fun to be had playing with a death star.

10188 isn't as realistic but does have 24 minifigures.

Be creative - go for a Tie Wing.

Ah, the defense procurement way. Prepare for a 300 % cost overrun.

Funko

Construction has begun at Sienar Fleet Systems

Funko

I realise I was the only one to vote for that. Even Sophie voted X-Wing when I asked her, but you all were wrong.

Dyl Ulenspiegel
03-04-2012, 08:28:21
You really are a difficult nerd.

Hey, a whole load of pieces are missing - I'd complain at that price!:tizzy:

Hey. I did vote for the Tie!

MOBIUS
03-04-2012, 10:31:21
Me too! Why is it the bad guys always seem to have the cooler kit?

MDA
03-04-2012, 11:00:03
because good is stupid!

Venom
03-04-2012, 12:24:12
The TIE is not cooler than the X-wing. It's cooler than all the other ships, but not the X-wing. The TIE does sound the coolest though.

Funko
03-04-2012, 13:23:33
Tie Fighter only had one vote this morning. I thought I voted for that. Maybe I didn't vote.

Fistandantilus
03-04-2012, 14:13:12
The option you voted for is dispayed in italic isn't it?

Lurker
03-04-2012, 14:35:22
Don't confuse him further.

MDA
03-04-2012, 15:15:10
well, then I voted Tie yesterday

mr_B
03-04-2012, 22:10:36
an architect never wears a tie
wanna knoe why?

zmama
03-04-2012, 22:11:42
why?

Tizzy
04-04-2012, 07:58:58
Cos he doesn't have one?

Dyl Ulenspiegel
04-04-2012, 09:04:22
Cause they wear bow ties.

mr_B
04-04-2012, 09:22:43
well jes jes and jes
and also, in the old days (when i was even smaller) we worked at a drawing board.
Then a tie always hangs in the way and messes up your drawing - that's why!!

MDA
04-04-2012, 10:48:31
bow ties are cool

Dyl Ulenspiegel
04-04-2012, 12:38:57
for architects.

MDA
04-04-2012, 13:33:21
and doctors

You wouldn't have that problem because the drawing board is probably already neck height for you.

No Problem, mr_b was sitting on the drawing board.

If it were anyone other than mr.B, I'd call that a PH.

UPDATE!

Tie fighter is built, half way through the X-Wing.

The Tie Fighter was a bit repetitive to build, but I can now build half a tie fighter wing without instructions.

Pics or it didn't happen.

16-04-2012, 16:51:22
Pics holding it over your head, running, and making tie (or x-wing) fighter noises. Please!

Funko
17-04-2012, 07:53:15
You really want a video so you can hear the noises.

Fistandantilus
17-04-2012, 07:55:16
Yes please.

Funko
17-04-2012, 08:05:46
Oh.

MOBIUS
17-04-2012, 09:18:13
If you were a true nerd, you'd do it for us...:cute:

Funko
17-04-2012, 09:54:52
I would if I wasn't so lazy.

MOBIUS
17-04-2012, 10:00:44
But you've proved to us in this thread that you're not lazy - I think you've backed yourself into a corner on this one...

Funko
17-04-2012, 10:01:05
No I haven't.

MOBIUS
17-04-2012, 11:59:51
No, you haven't, but I was hoping you might think you had...

Funko
17-04-2012, 12:19:21
I'm not as dumb as you look.

MDA
17-04-2012, 12:46:51
but, I saw him on a TV game show

zmama
17-04-2012, 12:56:58
It must be true!

Funko
17-04-2012, 13:37:10
He's not as dumb as he looks either.

MOBIUS
17-04-2012, 14:05:49
I must admit I do try my best

mr_B
17-04-2012, 15:33:12
I'm afraid that that's not enough

Funko
17-04-2012, 15:34:06
he is right you know.

mr_B
17-04-2012, 17:45:29
Lurker knows!!

zmama
17-04-2012, 19:07:19
Lurker is not as dumb as he looks?

Lurker
17-04-2012, 20:15:50
No one is that dumb.

zmama
17-04-2012, 20:54:24
Phew, so you can breathe and chew at the same time!

mr_B
17-04-2012, 21:10:54
I'm even dumber than I look taaaadaaaaaaaaa

Lurker
17-04-2012, 21:25:40
I dunno, that avatar ain't so smart looking.

zmama
17-04-2012, 21:30:54
What you talkin about? That avatar is brilliant!

Funko
18-04-2012, 07:41:56
