The following is a product review article about model MOC 23556 Imperial Star Destroyer ISD Monarch with 11348 Pieces
As a Star Wars fan, the most exciting new product must have been the Imperial Star Destroyer launched by MOC 23556 Imperial Star Destroyer ISD Monarch. Almost all of the iconic battleships that appeared in all Star Wars work, In terms of attractiveness, MOC 23556 is much stronger! In addition to the de-granulated surface allows the number of parts to reach unprecedented 11348 pieces! What is the actual performance? Will there be many problems because it is from the hands of modern? Let ’s take a closer look!
The huge box, nearly 12,000 parts, and more than 10 kilograms of weight are all monster-level. Different angles of the star destroyer can be seen on all sides of the box.
The inner box is 2 big, it is not easy to take it out (mainly too heavy …)
There are 2487 steps in 2 large manuals, which is terrible!However, there are many mistakes and omissions. Although they do not affect the main structure, there may be missing parts due to the wrong parts.
Seeing that there are steps in the packaging bag? It may actually disappoint everyone …This unprecedented monster has no steps to subcontract! No steps to subcontract!
Due to the huge size of the finished product, it was impossible to use a studio, so I could only sit on the ground and work together.99% of the parts are from [High Brick], the quality is very good, but the bite is tight, you must use a rubber hammer to assist in assembly, and reduce the load on the fingers. The skeleton is almost complete. This place is at the bottom of the Star Destroyer, where the ordinary spacecraft is parked. Such a side seems simple? The details will definitely scare you! The big triangle took shape. Then began to assemble the upper and lower decks. It has been a long time since the domestic building blocks have entered the step subcontracting era. A single armored version has to fight for a few hours at the fastest …Here, the cross shaft is inserted here to fasten the armor plate, but its position is quite concealed, and the hand cannot be reached, so it took a long time …After using all the methods you can come up with, without removing any parts, finally, insert the cross shaft! (There is no way to describe it …The instructions are not clear on the assembly instructions of the armor plate, so I will add it here.In addition to connecting the bushings on the side with the cross shaft as indicated in the manual, the main joints also need to press the red part of the mainframe tightlyUnexpectedly, the high brick 2×2 turntable is so good, maybe the bite is tight enough?Almost finished the first manual, come on!The assembly method of the armor plate on the other side is similar to the previous one, but the details are different.Start the assembly of the tail! It’s all a big project!A bunch of illegal assemblies, it is also very easy to fall …The 3 huge jets used out-of-print items, but MOC made a mistake here …The original version uses 98115 from 9676 (the lower hemisphere of the death star), but this is 98114 (the upper hemisphere of the death star) … In addition, there are structural problems here, and the disc cannot be spelled together. The solution is to add 2 2×2 discs.Get it done! Then put together the other details, and the tail is finished.Then there is the upper armor plate, of course, it is necessary to put together a few small ones …After installing the armor plates on both sides, some decoration parts should be installed. The assembly like the one below has been used at the bottom, but the upper deck cannot be achieved because the gap in the middle is too large to catch it.In addition to the above illegal assembly, the stick in step 1541 is even more outrageous …Seeing this gap, I gave up decisively.Well, continue to fight! It seems to be simple, but it takes a few hours …almost done! (Mystery: It ’s still early! )If you are willing to peel off my heart layer by layer ~Is it installed layer by layer?In the last part, I found another problem.If it is assembled in step 2403, it will not work. Mainly because of interference in this place. The height is not right. The solution is to add a layer of bricks like the picture below. In the end, there is only one hemisphere on each side … So there is no support underneath, it feels the same …After almost 5 days, it was finally completed, so moved Finally, there are 3 mini vehicles. From left, Hammerhead Corvette, Nebulon-B, Tantive IV.
Multi-faced photos of finished products
At present, the largest finished product among building blocks is born! Of course, you need to take a few more photos
To sum up
The finished product is so huge, the feeling of coming out is extremely shocking!But the biggest problem before the finished product came out was assembly. Except that this is the first product with tens of thousands of parts in history, sub-contracting is the deadliest! Seeing that the ground is full of parts, and the manuals are so thick, I can’t insist on a little perseverance …The parts use more than 99% of the high brick parts, and the gloss, color, tolerance, and other performance are excellent. However, its tight bite degree and long-term assembly will cause pain in the fingers. Even with the help of a hammer, it is difficult to reduce injuries under various uneven and strange structures, so everyone must be mentally prepared! In terms of structure, the main body is quite good. Various strange angles can also be restored very well, and very firm. There are more single-point decoration parts, but the parts are just tight, so it is not a big problem. There are also a small number of places where illegal assembly methods are used, and the special spelling method does not have much effect, but some places will become easier to drop. The manual can be said to be the worse part. Many steps cannot be seen clearly due to angle problems, and some very similar parts are not distinguished; when a large number of parts with lengths of 14, 14, 16 are used, they are not marked; there are many places showing the parts used in this step There is no red line marking or wrong marking, which makes the assembly smoothness that has been affected by no subcontracting becomes more difficult. In the case of complex structure and tight bite, rework is a very painful thing, which also makes the assembly The experience is getting worse. But in general, MOC’s Imperial Star Destroyer is definitely a milestone product made in China. In addition to the Star Wars fans must receive, for friends who want to know a set of highly recognized townhouse artifacts, this set is definitely your first choice!In addition, the problem that everyone is more concerned about is the size of the finished product. Since the official has not announced it, the size measured by me alone is about 1200x750x400, and it weighs more than ten kilograms Click Here To Buy This Product
