About this creation
A rest area on route 6.6 …..

On the well-worn hyperway between New Illinois and the San Antonio fault zone lies a rest stop. Aside from the food stall staffed by Zzred’Tk (‘best Motarian stew on the planet and snake fried to order!’) the scene changes throughout the day as people come and go…….



Officer C0P-50 activates the traffic scanner while he enjoys a cup o’lube, his ‘Estrada’ class speeder parked in the background.





A teenage pizza delivery driver tears down the ‘way in his Vespid 850 speeder. The insulated box contains two large crispy Klatchians with everything on them.









Willis Takagawa prepares to depart in his white V4N variant shuttle, while a hitcher wanders down the ‘way, hoping for a ride.







Moffet Grrrruff leaves the load of power converters he’s hauling for Tosche station to enjoy some of Zzred’Tk’s food.





Members of the local chapter of the Sons of Vorlath swoop gang cruise the hyperway looking for fun.







A squiddie cleaning crew make it to this part of the hyperway, using the washer-walker for gutters and pavement, a pressure pack for drains and a good old-fashioned shovel for road kill. Strangely, squiddies never bring any road kill back to the depot or take any lunch out with them…….







Extras (better photos actually)







































Notes

*Stretches* Hmmmm, hibernation after the MOC Olympics was just what the doctor ordered (Not Dr. Jones – he orders disturbing things and stiff drinks). I never realised how much it took out of me being in two contests one after another, right through to the final. You might think ‘what, you got tired from building Lego?’ and yes, I was.

Most of November and December I barely touched my bricks. I made the Secret Santa gift for the poor unfortunate Tom Simon and assembled any sets I received for Christmas and my birthday before starting to sort, but I finished my Death Star and really wanted to build again. That and the fact Matt was stamping his foot (I’m not your personal Jester you know, somebody else can make you laugh). This is the long-overdue result.

The only thing worse than constant MOCcing? Stopping then trying to start again. I lost some interest in this and the photos are not my best (some of my builder buddies have given some advice on that which will be implemented for next time) but I had to get this finished so I could get on with other things.

No big story, just think of it as flexing the building muscles again. Limbering up for bigger better things……..

Thanks for looking.

Looks great on my iPhone! Well, my faves are the walker, love that brush(hardly ever see those anymore) and that white shuttle. Great stuff, I'll be waiting for more.

Nice work! Love that skull speeder thingy, and, yeah, the photos are a bit fuzzy...

I always looked at Tosche station as a strip club and "power converters" were what they called the dancers. Always made Luke seem like less of a wimp in the beginning. Fun post here Stu! Reminds me of futurama but rustic. Really nice work! ~ Chris.

This is actually pretty EPIC!!! A couple of the aliens are the finest I've ever seen! Where did you get their heads? The ones you built yourself?

I love the cleanup walker! These are all terrific vehicles and figs! I'm glad you're back to building.

Love the vehicles, and your minifig characters are always unique. Especially the names. How many hobnobs did it take to come up with some of those?! I'm in the same boat as you with the MOC O hibernation, and then the move really helped to knock down the building mood. The MOC A's are jump starting it again though thankfully!

Very clever, I like all those little speeders and ships. I know how you feel like... don't force yourself to build things, and eventually you will :)

It's good to see you're back from your bbb (brick building's block). I'm already envy again, seeing all those cool vehicles with their clever and unique designs. Brilliant.

Quoting Mister Bones Your pictures look .....odd
Yep, that's what I was whining to you guys about a few nights ago. I tried out some slightly different lighting and hey, it didn't work. Alas, i'd already started breaking down the builds when I realised the photos were poop. I've had some advice from Steef, Xeno and others on that and hopefully better results next time. Thanks for the nice comments on the builds though everybody!

Not surprised you needed a break after all that competitive building... if this is a gentle warm up, I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next! All great stuff here, I especially like the squiddy cleaners and the Sons of Vorlath. Great imaginative use of minifigs too. Welcome back!

What a return to the game. Stuart Delahay back to his brilliant best! (I ripped that last bit off the cover of some Guy Ritchie film (Not that I own any Guy Ritchie films))

Some fantastic rigs and characters, reminiscent of an LIU Atlas episode. Stretching is important, but don't forget to set your feet.~H

Well, that's quite the stretching excercise, my friend. I actually love the far out vehicles and figs. Each of them, not to mention the variety. But then, Matt has labeled me insane (and I have accepted said labelling). The write up is the kind of stuff that made me tickled you were my personal secret santa jester. I do believe I am hereby volunteering to be your newest fan boy.

Nice work! I love all the strange vehicles and characters you made to go with them. Well done!
