That being said, this is my entry for Jonathan Coyle's Impulse Set Design Contest. The idea was to create a fictitious set of 100 pieces or less. I decided to redo the Hoth Battlepack the way I thought it should have been done. Originally, the set was a t 116 pieces, so I did have to chop all the greebles off the Probe and shorten up the 74-Z. I replaced the AT-AT driver (which, don't get me wrong, is an awesome but out of place 'fig) with an Imperial Technician from BF2. I did the box in a combination of the LEGO Star Wars 10th Anniversary box design and the Empire Strikes Back 30th anniversary logo. In a complete throwback to classic LEGO Star Wars, I also designed an alternate model using the pieces of this MOC. By the way, the black circular piece around the probe droid is the rubber portion of an old wheel. The command station is non-canon, but it was a nice design and something LEGO might do. The Snow Skimmer was a combination of the Naboo Flash Speeder and the Rebel Snow Speeder.

Two things I love about your 'official' sets: you always do that trademark stuff, plus, your creations that are so simple, are so cool! This is pretty cool, and I agree with the AT-AT driver fig, even though I don't have the battle pack myself, the pilot shouldn't be in that set.
