Lego CUUSOO Star Wars

Hi,

I have played SWTOR for a year now, and it has dragged me back into the Star Wars hobby. As part of it I started collecting the LEGO Star Wars starfighter models. In the current series the Empire only has the basic TIE fighter available.

There is a website run by LEGO called CUUSOO. If a design gets 10,000 supports by people, LEGO may produce them as a kit. I have designed a couple of Star Wars starfighters there, the TIE Advanced/Avenger and the TIE Defender, and others have designed a lot more awesome Star Wars vehicles.

My designs are here:

I have links to designs for the TIE Interceptor and Darth Vader's TIE Advanced on my pages.

Thanks to anyone who supports these designs!

There is a Defender out there, as far as i know.
I myself own only the Interceptor, but I love that model.

Can you please give us Server Transfers, so I can get back to a RP Server? Thanks.

The Lego Defender and Interceptor you are referring to is from the old Lego Star Wars Starfighter series, and do not fit in with the current (2010+) range, which are all slightly larger and much more detailed. I considered getting the old defender at one point, but it would just seem odd sitting next to the new ones.

Lego has updated the X Wing, TIE Fighter, Y Wing, Slave 1, Imperial Shuttle, Snowspeeder and just recently the A Wing.

I am working on a TIE Bomber design at the moment.

Very nice models. It took a barrage of questioning to sign up but its worth it. I supported you and the other guys models you had links to. I would love to see these in a set. Are there any SWTOR models on CUUSOO? Have you thought of making one yourself?

Thank you! Lego has made a couple of SWTOR models now, the Sith Fury and a Jedi Starfighter. This year they are doing some troop packs with a speeder and the Jedi Defender I think.

Ok.... My son, who is a collector of lego, likes these.

When I say a collector he can tell you the years they came out, how many pieces, what model number, blah blah blah, he is a serious collector.

He likes the way they look, and feels they would fit well, with alot of the other ships lego makes. ( Star wars and other sets).

So you have at least one person that will buy these... lol.
I have been called a hater for voicing my opinion. So be it. But I would rather die on my feet, then live on my knees.

Those are some sweet models OP!! You're making me want to reinstall TIE Fighter again though... As much as I prefer rebel craft like the T65 or A-wing, some of the crafts the Imps make are awesome, Tie Advanced and TIE Bomber are my personal faves.

I did buy a couple of those mini lego models of starwars ships for display on my PC desk, the ones that come in the little orbs that look like Star wars planets. I'm quite proud of the mini X-Wing on my desk .

Thank you for your support!

I have the hull of the TIE Bomber completed, but I need to sort out the wings, I want it to match the TIE Advanced of Darth Vader's that someone else has done, and need his permission to use his wings.

My girlfriend loves the little mini planets, and has a few of them. This year Lego is putting out a TIE Bomber in that set. The new A Wing in the same scale as my models is not very big so not very expensive if you want an A Wing.
