Question to anyone who owns UCS Slave 1

Howdie,

I'm currently building the UCS Slave 1 and absolutely love it. In bag 7 you get to build Boba Fett and in that bag was an inner bag which contained 5 of the antenna pieces for his helmet and also 5 of the piece in the attached image. Any idea what this piece is?! It doesn't seem to be mentioned in the manual anywhere.

Thanks for any responses!

    Looks like a visor, not sure why you have 5 though.

    Yes, that's a visor for his helmet. In my experience, Lego gives you at least 3 of the antennas as spares so it's normal.

    Yes, it's part of the standard pack you get with most Boba and certain clone trooper variants (like Captain Rex etc.), it's a "one size fits all" solution for those type of figures, each possible compatible figure probably only needs about 1/2 the stuff in the bag. Definitely a visor.

    Ahh right, many thanks for all the responses. I suspected it was some sort of head piece attachment but you can't attach it while the antenna is attached, besides I don't ever recall Boba wearing a visor.

    Just finished bag 10 and it's looking stunning BUT the windscreen has a fairly big scratch down it. Pretty frustrating, I've tried to take a photo and I'll send it to Lego to see if they can replace the part.

    I just built #9496 and had the same thing. I appreciate them giving the extra antenna pieces since it seems like it will be easy to lose, and these visors will come in handy for other things.

    Looked at the parts listing for #9496, Looks like the antenna comes with the visors as standard...see brickset.com/parts/6004908. Mystery solved, least I know I didn't miss something!

    Both my large yellow Benny's Spaceship and clear #10240 X-Wing canopies had scratches on them. Much worse than yours too, like giant grazes. I wonder if TLG should consider packing them with a sticky protective film to avoid damage. They must have received so many complaints about mangled sticker sheets they needed to change the way they packed them. It is possible they'll do something about the canopies if it's a widespread problem. In both cases I just ordered replacement pieces through their website and a couple of weeks later fresh ones turned up.

    Why is it that the 99% of the parts are in sealed bags, but the most special and delicate piece is bouncing around the box exposed?

    Mine was scratched pretty good as well. I plan to call about a replacement tomorrow and suggest they may want to bag it to prevent that from continually happening, as well as describe the two errors in the instructions I emailed them about (p. 86 has the completed picture for p. 87 and p. 266 doesn't have the detail for the 1x1 round tile that goes on at this step).

    Interesting, I haven't noticed any errors in the manual as yet, will go back and have a look. I placed an order last night for the damaged part and it appears in my [email protected] history as 'new order', fingers crossed it eventually turns up. It's not the end of the world as it is but when you pay so much for a set you expect it to get to you in perfect condition.

    My Benny's Spaceship has a scratch like that, do they replace the part for free, how does that work?
  • mmozzanommozzano UKMember Posts: 417
    Hi @empire‌ - I believe you can phone customer services however I placed an order directly online at https://service.lego.com/en-gb/replacementparts/#BasicInfo
  • mmozzanommozzano UKMember Posts: 417
    Today the replacement screen arrived from Lego. Took a few weeks to arrive but least it's here at last and bravo to LEGO for great customer service :)
  • The Slave I (UCS) that I bought (Denmark, LEGO Store) do have several scratches too.
  • Edit: The windshield do have several scratches*

    And there are no mistakes in the instruction manual.

    Mine was scratch free (lucky I guess).

    In the European version of the manual there may well not be, in the U.S. Version there are. I spoke with customer service about it and before long was on a three way call with the lady I was originally in touch with and someone she just identified as being from design. They went through it with me for about 45 minutes and acknowledged both mistakes and even went on to say it got by their many levels of editorial review and the review of the design team as I was the first to call it into question. There were other things which came of it as well :)

    I'll post pics of the pages in question so you can see.

    Here we have page 87 where in step 23 we build and attach a fun little assembly:

    But wait, here on page 86 step 22 that assembly is already placed:

    Odd. Build, build, build your way all the way to page 265 where in step 10 we are a good way along in building the port side of the fuselage:

    Hello page 266! What the heck happened in step 11 to all those parts I've placed previously to the right hand side of this part of the build!? :
