I got the echo base set for Christmas and this is what i built with the pieces.
About this creation
This is what I started with...
And this is what I ended up with. A communications tower, a snowtrooper armed with the latest in uberlazer technology, and a large anti-infantry-anti-tank-anti-speeder turret.
First is the communication tower. This tower is fitted with several fancy levers and high tech looking things, so that it can work in really cold temperatures. There is a closet in the back for holding extra ammuninition and weapons. The dish is attatched to a flexible cable so that it can bend in the gale force winds and not snap, this is very important when the troops need to communicate in the middle of a blizzard. The comm tower is a blank white so that it is invisble in the snow, as you can see, the snow around the base of the tower is the SAME COLOUR as the comm tower.
Enemy Trooper: "omg, i can't see it!"
See folks, the colour choice really works well in this landscape. Here are a few more pictures (without flash) of the comm tower.
Next we have the snowtrooper armed with the newest addition to the uberlazer class of heavy infantry weaponry: The Uberzooka! (**Uberzooka is also my username on youtube**) The Uberzooka is capable of firing an UberBeam or a LazerBolt. The UberBeam must be charged up before firing is possible. once charged, an UberBeam cuts through everything in its path, and... actually that's it, it just goes right through everything. so it is usefull for hitting enemies when they are marching in ranks. The LazerBolt does not require charging and is much less accurate than the UberBeam. The LazerBolt is a small shot of compressed Lazer Energy, and it explodes violently on impact. The exploding LazerBolt fractures and splinters of powerful Lazer Energy shoot off in all directions, having a very leathal shrapnel effect. This type of shot is usefull for hitting enemies that are close together. Here are some more pictures of the snowtrooper and Uberzooka.
And finally we have the UberTurret. This turret is armed with a heavy cannon for bringing down large tanks and walkers, two rapid fire laser guns for use against infantry, and two mini EMPs to knock speeders out of the air. The turret is also white so that it can be invisible amounst the snow. Heres some more pictures (with flash).
And here are some more pictures of the turret(without the flash).
And as the sun sets over the Hoth Outpost, we hear the Twin Sun Score written by John Williams himself, and we realize...
that there are SNOWYS and REBELS in the same outpost!?!? um, hmmm (now what? it's too late to retake the pictures, quick, make up an excuse) so, the reason there are snowys and rebels together is... the, ah, snowys were caught outside by a random blizzard and, um, they rebels had made all this hot cocoa, so, ah, the snowys agreed on a truce and decided to discuss diplomacy over a cup of hot cocoa! In the end they decided that the snowys would join the rebels and leave the stormys and scoutys to get killed on the deathstar. THE END!
about the moc: I built it, I took pictures, then about a month later I got around to posting pictures. My favorite part is definatly the Uberzooka design. The comm tower was built using the pieces left over from the UberTurret. anyway, rate it, don't rate it, whatever, but please give me comments, especially about things i could do better (such as photography tips, and overall presentation tips) Play Well!
This alternate is much nicer than the original one. And all your explanations are great ! The dish attached to a flexible cable to resist blizzard conditions is awesome. And the cocoa diplomacy is really funny...
