After re-watching Revenge of the Sith for the millionth time, I was inspired to build a Lego version of my own. I decided to make an “improved version” which could be an upgrade or second version of the original. The major differences between mine and the original are the guns, repulsorlifts, and cockpit; all of which have been changed to some degree.
About this creation
Since the position of the middle gun seemed unwieldy, I moved it to the top of the body, giving it a 360 degree traverse. The two side guns were shortened, and to account for the lesser range, a rotating missile launcher was built around it. Also added were four ball-turrets to the front and two to the back for added attack/defense.
The repulsorlifts underneath, of which there were originally 16, I changed to a single unit with much enhanced armor to lower the risk of damage.
The cockpit isn’t really changed, except that it doesn’t stick out higher than the body.
Figuring in as an upgrade for the original, these changes could provide the vehicle an added ability to attack AND defend, which the original supposedly wasn’t very good at.
Sorry for the blurriness of the pictures, my camera wasn't really working...
