Well, this is my fifth MOC. Not exactly a "MOC", as this is basically a showcasing of the modifications I made to my 8093 Plo Koon's Jedi Starfighter set I got last year. I was extremely dissatisfied with the wimpy armament LEGOŽ gave this ship, especially more so considering Plo Koon is the third best pilot in the Jedi order!! So I took matters into my own hands...
And before we begin, this is meant for people who actually OWN Plo Koon's Jedi Starfighter. If you don't own it, that's fine, but please understand I'm not giving you the down-low on the set. Not really a review. So yeah. Enjoy!
About this creation
Text pertaining to a photograph can be found at that photograph's bottom.
The rear of the starfighter. Here we see the engine modifications I made. I added two side thrusters for better dogfight agility AND filled in those pathetic hollow jets LEGOŽ gave the set.
This is how you fill them in. Take a small translucent radar disc in the color you desire the jet glow to be, and stick them on a small antenna rod...
Then, you stick the rod and the disc into the small hole at the end of the jet (which you can see here...).
A shot of the left wing of the starfighter. I simply added two gearsticks and some EXO-FORCE piece with a Chinese or Japanese character on it. If anyone out there knows what it stands for, please tell me. I'm terrified it means something bad or pointless that doesn't need to be on Plo Koon's ride. And BTW there is no shot of the right wing since I didn't modify it.
The bottom of the starfighter, flaunting its beautiful laser cannons and proton torpedoes.
Close-up of the nose. The side laser cannons make the starfighter accurate, as the REAL Delta-7B Aethersprite-class light interceptor has cannons on the top of the wings AND on the bottom. LEGOŽ, for some reason or another, was too cheap to include this, and instead opted to leave Master Plo's ride with only two wimpy blasters. Couldn't kill a nexu with 'em. You can also see the two proton torpedoes I added and the heavy machine gun in the front, which fires .50mm depleted uranium rounds to blow Seps to smithereens.
A shot of the jets and thrusters from the bottom. You can also see the lame pin LEGOŽ used for the "ejection" function. Totally stupid if you ask me. Master Plo doesn't even have life support, you want him to eject into space? Yeah yeah I know he can survive in space but seriously that feature is bunk. I'm keeping it only because it's fun to watch him pop out and land on his head, and also I can laugh and say, "HA so much for the Force!!" Lawl.
Ah, now we see Master Plo getting ready to blow up some Sep cruisers...but hey what's this? Some clumsy non-clone Republic mechanic who is working on minimum wage is refueling Master Plo's starfighter? And with the wrong grade fuel? Uh-oh...
Plo Koon in a rare outburst of anger which really does not become a good Jedi:IMBECILE!! IS THAT DIESEL YOU'RE GIVING ME? YOU KNOW MY STARFIGHTER CAN ONLY TAKE V-POWER!!
Clumsy non-clone Republic Mechanic who is working on minimum wage: But sir, prices at the pump are going up...I thought it would be nice if we saved a bit more this year...after all we are spending so much you know. Already Chancellor Palpatine has been working overtime to fix the economy and I feel it is my duty as a Republic citizen to help in what ways I ca-
Plo Koon in a rare outburst of anger which really does not become a good Jedi: BUNGLING OAF!!
Clumsy non-clone Republic Mechanic who is working on minimum wage: AAAAUUGHH!!!
Master Plo leaves for his next mission.
