I got them yesterday and I've done a review in the Review section.
There's also a link to my flickr account, where I've uploaded scans of the instructions.
Soon I'll be adding the instructions for the SDCC Clone Wars Edition as well.

These dudes are great, though I've taken a dislike to IG88 and his arms - they're extremely fragile. :facepalm:

Yeah I was wondering how well that connection would work IRL... I've taken a few liberties on some of the designs and just might modify IG with new "shoulders" that work better.

Here is the link to my CubeDude Version of Zuckuss:
http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Kyphur/Star-Wars/Instructions/cd-zuckuss.pdf.dat

Save it as a pdf. If you print it double sided then you'll have it in booklet form otherwise just cut the pages in half and reorder them.


And here is a text parts list for it:

Okay, I couldn't sleep as a work issue was plaguing my thoughts so after I resolved it I finished the instructions for Boushh!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Kyphur/Star-Wars/Instructions/cd-boushh.pdf.dat

Again: Save it as a pdf. If you print it double sided then you'll have it in booklet form otherwise just cut the pages in half and reorder them.

How can I save it as a PDF file? The link is embedded as a DAT file, and when I click to download, all I can do is decide the location to download it too. I've tried adding the ".pdf" tag to the file, at which point my computer will recognize it and open it as a PDF file, but when I try to open it I'm greeted with an error message about an unsupported file type. Any chance you could upload them here as PDF files?

They are valid pdfs I just had to add the .dat extension to save them on brickshelf. The files are named "something.pdf.dat" remove the .dat when you are saving it or after you have saved it.

Or use this link: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Kyphur/Star-Wars/Instructions, right click on the desired file and select "Save As" or "Save Link As" then remove the ".dat" from the filename.

Thanks for the info, kyphur, but still no luck. Attempting to change the extension both before and after saving the file yielded the same results: "There was a problem reading this document." Anyone else have the same problem and find a different work-around?

Are you using adobe? Another user reported problems using adobe, they were able to open them using Foxit Reader (also free). I'll see if I can fix the adobe issue.

Problems here with Adobe too.

According to their header the files are PDF-1.6 format, which should be ok from Acrobat 7.0 onwards. My Acrobat 9.3.0 simply reports error 109 ("error while opening document").

I hadn't bothered to look into it any further, but I guess I could try to open them with xpdf or the viewer on MacOS X.

Links are updated, I just changed the PDF version to PDF/A (Archive) and now they work fine.

FWIW, I've been playing around with the Capt Rex CubeDude...

I have a generic Clonetrooper that can be given unit colors easily and a few accessories for the Clones:

Here is the link to a larger version of the rendered image:

I'm not sure the "Mini-Gun" idea will work well, need to test it after I get off work!

That did the trick, thank you! These are great, and the instructions look very nice. Thanks for posting these, kyphur!

kyphur, if you are going to continue making pdf files of instructions you should be posting them in the LEGO MOC Showcase forum.

Find KimT's review (in the reviews section) he posted images of the scanned instructions for both of the "Official" sets.
