The Shin-nyu. A long range infiltration craft used by space ninjas.
About this creation
Have you heard of legends new?
A frightening warrior, of the ninja clan.
In the swiftest ship, his aim is true -
all combatants dead, or ran.
So remember when in battle you meet;
to him, enemies are but roaches!
To be crushed beneath steel-clad feet -
farewell. The Reaper... approaches.
This is the Shin-nyu. It is a space ninja ship, designed to stealthily infiltrate enemy territory, strike a blow where it'll hurt and then quickly get away. It is piloted by Danzou, who has inofficially been dubbed "the Reaper" due the similiarities of his close-combat weapon of choice and a schythe.
The name means infiltrate in japanese, and I owe Andrew Becraft (aka Dunechaser) and his language skills bigtime for helping me with it. He is running one of the best (if not the best) lego blogs out there known as the Brother's Brick. I highly recommend a visit.
A truly l33t ninja ship. I admire asymmetrical spaceships (although I've never been able to build a good one myself), and this one is a fine example of one that has elements of asian culture. My favorite part: the use of red roof-joiner pieces in the cockpit door. It's a small detail but it's cool.
