Cool Star Wars/Sci-Fi Set Photos Featuring Prototype Pieces 9 Years, 5 Months ago  
DF Faithful,

My friends and I played a little Star Wars mini game last night, so I thought I would share this photo. It contains some of the new pieces from the upcoming BETA Expansion set:

-- Access Tube/Porthole Wall Piece
-- Control Panel
-- Forcefield Door
-- Curved Wall Piece
-- Curved Passage Piece
-- 6" Straight Passage Piece

Any feedback?

*sobbing uncontrollably*

That is one of the most gorgeous things I've ever seen.

Wow.

I am REALLY digging the sci-fi stuff. As much as the new fantasy elements are fantastic, it seems like you guys are really jazzed by the sci-fi stuff, it has you getting creative and inventive and really pumping stuff out there like never before! I mean, it just seems like every few months there's pics of new really fantastic stuff.

I love that force field! That is just going to be so addictive. You have to make that available singly, so we can get ten of them!

Ooh! Feedback!

I have a request: at least two, preferably four, of the curved corner piece in the set please!

OR -- make the curved corner piece available singly (or in two-packs or something)

That piece would be great for traditional sci-fi "looks" -- like Bespin, or 2001, all those curves, almost nothing is ever at right angles or corners in those movies.

But if we only get 1 corner piece in the set, it's just not going to be possible. I don't want to feel like I need four of the Beta set just to complete a cool curved room. If I buy more than 1 Beta set, it should be because the pieces are all so great I want many of them, not because I felt obliged to in order to finish something basic.

2 curved corners in the set would be great -- then with just two Beta sets, we could have a complete room, plus lots of other cool elements.

Also -- how about another frame for the force field door? Something to make it stand out more from the regular door.

Other than that, this set looks like bliss.

These Look Great, And I Like the Use of a Door Frame as a "Work Station" also nice Job on the Green Plastic Force Field, And I Agree with Law in that it would be Kewl to Have a Unique Type of Door Frame available... BUT... The Kewl THing about having the Doors interchangeable is that there are Now going to be added possibilities such as... Party Finally Figures out the Right Access Code, or Series of Buttons to Deactivate the Force Field and Then... Crash down Comes the Heavy Security Door... Or reverse the Order and You Have a Party Trying Deparately to Bust Down the Heavy Bulkhead Door... At Last they are Through, the Cutting Torch Sputters it's last Gasp as its Fuel is depleated... And the Sound of the Giant Mecha-Ogre can be heard to get Louder as it seeks to Crush our Heroes for invadeing the Cyber-lair... But alas... The Future Bunker was Secured with Force-field Back ups...Buzz-Hum-Snick... The Force Field Pops into place as the Mecha-Ogre rounds the Corner... (And in my Games? Roll a Dex Check to see if the Force Field took off a Hand in the Process...<Snicker>....)...

Oh, I like the idea of the basic design being the same, so you can use the doors interchangeably, and can switch from forcefield to heavy security in the same frame.

I'm just also aware that a whole new forcefield door would be cooler as a new item than the same frame with a new insert....

Still, the set looks great.

You Know... It might be Kinda Kewl if the Port Hole Piece were Designed like the Door Frames, so that You Could Have an Open Porthole, Force Field or Normal Door Blocking it... Or Even a Third Option? The Point Being to Make it "Hollow" like the Door Frame so that it can Receive a Door... Oh... Portcullis?

These look really good, i like the control panel, The concept of the forcefiled door is very nice, just wish it were a differnet color, being the SW nut, a i want it to be the same color as the forcefields that they used to put in the Dark Forces/Jedi Knight games...

was amazed that the Work station was a door!, great idea to get multpile uses out of an item.

Can't wait till the newer pieces i ordered show up going to make something big... :D, and now have to wait till Spring... oh well can save up some money...

Ghengis Ska,

Perhaps the Kewlest part about the Forcefield to me is that it has "Opened the Door"...<Snicker>... For All sorts of Possible Future stuff... I Have Already Made some Iron Grating for the Door Ways Using Cut down pieces of Plastic Strawberry Basket. (Painted with a Coat of Gun Metal)... And as soon as I Figure out How, I Intend to Use the Print on Transparencies Idea being Discussed in another Post, to Come Up with all kinds of Force Field Effects... so even if Green is Not For You... Well at least the Idea IS out there so you Can make anything you want!

To get the thickness of the plastic right i can't help but think Shrinky Dink type stuff would work better than a straight transparency... did i just give away my age...

So hey when is Beta Comming out?

I have no idea how often DF does releases, becuase i only started with them on the Sci Fi stuff, is it once every 6 months or so, do i have to wait till April to get beta?

I know this feedback isn't going to help your bottom line a lot but, if I weren't so heavily invested in the fantasy DF stuff, I would really, really buy a ton of the sci-fi sets. This stuff looks absolutely fantastic.
