A few questions

Postby Gen_Shingar » Sun Jun 14, 2009 7:31 pm

I am starting to run out of parts so I am turning to the community for some advice.

1. I am running out of White torso/Arm pieces for my basic clones, where (as lego shop does nto carry them) can I get these?

2. Where can I aquire lightsword(lego)/lightsaber blades of various colors? Lego only carries red and blue?

3. I have started making astromech droid decals, I have the torso part perfected, does anyone have a guide for making the curved dome top?

Thanks

I'm not sure this is the right forum for this, you may want to post in the Buy/Sell/Trade forum.

But as for questions 1 & 2 I'd suggest either buying ot trading them in the Buy/Sell/Trade forum or going on BrickLink.

I bought several parts from bricklink about a year ago to build up my collection and had very little problems with it. Some orders would take a month to get to me and I had one issue with a seller who never sent me the part, but that ways over like $2 so not that big a deal.

Over all I had 1 issue out of like 15+ deals. So BrickLink can be pretty reliable.

Ok, I wasn't sure as this was for making customs, I will re-post this there as well and see if they delete this one or not.

Thank You

As for number three, save yourself the headache and look into the decals Kam has done. Creating flat art for a curved surface is quite tricky and he's got lots of colour options available.

As far as parts, Bricklink comes to mind most promptly.
