Remember the good old days when there were alternative models shown on the LEGO boxes? I always loved them and always tried to build them. Since they stopped I still sometimes have tried to build something else from the sets, this MOC is an example of that. It's been a while since I built something Star Wars related. I picked up the 2009 Droid Shuttle and... well, this was the result. A quick-built alternative Attack Shuttle for the CIS. I love the colour scheme of this set, and it's got a fair amount of useful bricks. Here we go...
Hey, seems like I used a ugly word last time I comment.. the comment is gone!
This piece is excellent! It looks like a CIS-thing with the wings and shape, a bit like the vulture driod. reat job, Greedo seems satisfied!
Why have I never commented on your mocs before? You're an amazing builder (and a year older than me)! I do remember the alternate builds on the older SW sets. I never tried to build them, though, but this is a really cool design!
Quoting Marcus Forsberg
Great upgrades on already great MOCs! As my fellow commenter I bought my first Bionicle yesterday... I think it is called Skrall, a mean-looking black fellow. Thanks for the tip and inspiration, I'll definately try to integrate some Bio parts in my next creation...
You'll find that Skrall's blades can form an arcane-looking propulsion system (with a 3-way technic axle) or weapon support :) I can't wait!
I never really got the idea behind those "attack shuttles". You either have a shuttle, or an attack craft. But mixing them together somehow doesn't make sense to me. Well, but MOCwise I have to say that this is a nice build! I like the cockpit opening idea ;)
