My greatest creation to date, as well as the coolest droid of Star Wars: Episode III.
About this creation
After seeing Episode III (and noticing that there was no Lego set for this droid), I knew that I just HAD to make my own model of this awesome, six-legged infantry droid.
Also known as "Muckracker" droids and by the serial number LM-432, crab droids are known for their ability to maneuver over uneven terrain. Therefore, the legs were very important to the design of the model, and (for accuracy's sake) I was sure to add pistons in between the legs and their armor plates. Sadly, the legs turned out to not be quite strong enough to hold up the body (seeing as the crab droids in the movie usually only hold their bodies about a foot from the ground so that their "eyes" are somewhat protected while their eye shields are open) and that is the only reason why I had to slip a little stand under the body of this droid.
Speaking of the body, I created a function where the eyes of the droid retract into its body, with the possibility of them popping out after pulling out a shaft that sticks out of the droid's left side.
