Where can I find and buy bricks?
You can search and buy the parts on bricklink. You can buy some parts directly on the LEGO website (pick a brick service).
Remember that the official LEGO sets of the Star Wars line are excellent starting points for recovering bricks and minifigures.
Are there rare and expensive bricks?
I spend a lot of time choosing Bricks during the design phase.
I try to discard rare and expensive Bricks to limit as much as possible the final cost of MOC.
How much does it cost to build StarBricks MOCs?
The average cost of the bricks is around € 0,10-0,15 / piece.
The final cost depends a lot on your search and purchase skills on bricklink and if you decide to buy only new or used parts.
Do you have any particular advice for finding parts?
Sure! Before buying the Bricks check and search in the bulk you have in the house.
Remember that the red pieces can be replaced with other colors because they will not be visible once the MOC is finished.
How can I upload the parts list to bricklink?
The file must not be opened.
Is the LYGOD lighting kit included in the instructions?
No, the LYGOD lighting kit is an optional and is not essential for the construction of the MOC.
In the case of the B-Project it will be appropriate to assemble it during the construction phases of the MOC.
Why are the instructions only printed and limited edition?
Building a 3,000 / 6,000-piece MOC is challenging and expensive. Furthermore, finding parts is not easy and the more people are looking for a part, the more likely it is that it will become rare and expensive.
In a market like that of bricklink, where the pieces are not infinite, the fewer wanted-lists there are and the greater the chances of building MOCs at an affordable price.
This is why the instructions are limited and it is important not to disclose and share wanted lists.
StarBricks projects are special and limited only to AFOLs who want to build MOCs to add to their collections.
