Many compliments to be made. But of your most recent post: the Koijin really catches my eye the color accent and design is fantastic! The Dragonfly is an excellent design for a drone type. As I said many more compliments to be made but I just wanted to concentrate on those specific ones. Again, very nice work :)

What part is the missiles in the last picture? Is it just 8 white rods sitting inside a capsule? It works really well, love the aesthetic.

it is indeed simply eight lightsaber rods sitting in a slot- made with 1x4x1 wall plates and some 1x6 or 1x6 tiles on top, with a bar plate in front. I'm not sure how sturdy it would be in real brick, but I suspect the answer would be 'not very,' if using that technique in a game I'd probably 'cheat' and stick a small bit of blu-tak on the interior ends of the rods to hold them in place.

I just tried it out. If it's built like in the render the rods just slide right out when it tips forward because they're actually very slightly wider than the space inside the wall plates, so they make them bend outwards a tiny bit, and also push the plate on top upwards. With some extra reinforcement preventing that, the rods are packed in there very tightly and aren't going anywhere, but it really bulks it up.
If playing Dungeons & Dragons has taught me one thing, it's that you should probably not trust someone who introduces themselves with the phrase "GREETINGS FELLOW MORTALS IT IS I."

yeah, 's about what I figured. rubber bands might be a way to fix that as well without adding too much bulk, either as friction pads for the rods themselves or as exterior reinforcement. or, as mentioned, just cheat with a bit of blu-tak or some tape. That technique has been around for a long time, I think I first saw it on MOCpages; I've just never actually had the parts to try out building it in real brick.

I've actually been considering dusting off my Minifig skills and building some 'fig scale frames, how interested in that would folks be?
