Could a boardie please help me identify these Joe missiles? I bought a lot because it had some missiles I need, but I can't figure these ones out. For future reference, if there's an equivalent to WHOBIT for missiles, please let me know. Thanks!

They have been making the last two waves like 'mini' masterpieces.  I was stunned at how well Optimus Prime came out and regretted not buying this on Amazon when it was available on sale.

Reviews seem to approve of it.  There are no real gaps and the transformation was pretty solid.

 

That is a nice Jetfire!

Just like it walked off the screen in 84!

I think the large are from the mobile battle bunker.  Should be 5.

The small look like they are from the locust.  Should be 4.  I love that little ship.

Both from 1990.

Thanks. Never had either of those, no wonder I didn't recognize them.

First bag... first impressions - this ship is incredibly dense.  The hull is a very solid build with no hollow areas.  Plates upon plates work out this foundation and conceal the technic beams that give this beast structure.  On to bag two. 

Warning... I never apply stickers... let that be known in advance.

Bag 3 filled out the wing section as well as the top deck and the framing for the escape pod.  One thing I do not like... and hopefully this changes by the time I add the engines... it is very back heavy and the ship falls on it backside right now... I’m guessing... hoping... the addition of the engines gives it a better center of gravity.

Bag 4 - coming together much nicer now with the nose connected and the front access panels.  What’s nice is that the ship makes sense.  Theoretically a mini figure could get to each place on the ship be it the bedroom or the cockpit from the main cargo hold.  I will show off the features later.

Bag 5 the ship is really taking shape and unless Hasbro does a Haslab project for this, (I have a feeling they might) this is the best Razor Crest you are going to see.  The only issue I have is that the escape pod has an empty window... no glass... I might have to play with that down the line.

Bag 6 - the engines

This might be the best Lego ship every released short of the last minifig scale falcon... ($160 one not the $800 one) Solid and structurally sound, nothing is flying off of this of you look at it the wrong way.   Again everything is accessible in a realistic way.  There are a couple of changes I might make but on to that later.

Minifig offering is stacked here... with introduction of “The Child” and Apollo Creed... don’t care what his Star Wars name he will always be Apollo Creed to me especially with the shirt I am coincidentally wearing.

Ok... some close ups of interiors.... 

Likes

  • I am liking the crew quarters and that it is accessible from the cargo bay like on the show. 
  • Dedicated weapons area for torpedo storage and it is possible to modify it to hold more weapons.
  • top weapon storage
  • cockpit area is not closed off from interior of the ship like the cockpits on lego falcon
  • Massive storage area and it is easily accessible
  • Underside of escape pod is accessible 
  • prisoners in carbon freeze are easily stored on the ship. 
  • The ship is sturdy and heavier than you would think - trust me.

Dislikes

  • I am not digging the open window on the escape pod... that is it really... seriously other than that, the thing is perfect. 

Modifcations 

  • The cargo hold needs a speeder bike... it can certainly fit one... so I am guessing that making one might have been a little cost prohibitive
  • The engines are not designed to come apart like that but they do... therefore that can be considered a panel and the engine needs an interior
  • There needs to be a ladder built leading to the cockpit to the cargo hold. 
  • I need a Kara Dune minifigure and an ugnaught.  
  • Escape pod / flying coffin needs a covering or a window - covering might be easier.
  • Need to dig up some cargo containers. I can fit a speeder bike and cargo containers.

All case fresh (C9+ or better): looks like the MASK market for those sets is about to take an unexpected dive.

Are they really in that nice of shape?

I also thought I read somewhere that something similar happed in the late 80s with Mego Star Trek figures that really sank the prices down.

Still, the MASK find is really neat.
