Wampa-Class Heavy Transporter
When Jedi General Ki-Adi-Mundi and his unit, the 21st Nova Corps (Galactic Marines), were called off to serve on Mygeeto, the Republic's lines were already stretched thin. The first few days of the battle saw the Republic taking heavy losses in hardware. Quick thinking on the part of General Mundi saved the Republic's foothold on the icy planet; under his instruction, around 200 ancient, derelict, wheeled mining transports were repaired and fitted with whatever armament the Republic troops had. They were designated as "Wampa"-Class Heavy Transporters, or "Iceboxes" by the Galactic Marines. Though their service period was short-lived, they bought the troops on the surface time as reinforcements were landed. Once real tanks arrived on the scene, these girls were just forgotten. Like all other things in the Grand Army of the Republic, their sole purpose was to serve well and with unquestionable loyalty.
About this creation


Text pertaining to a photograph may be found at that photograph's bottom.



Front. Meh, I really should remove those stickers. But on the left you see a radar dish and in the middle, right between the viewscreens, there is a quad gun.




Side. Here we can see the auxiliary guns and the main turret. Not all of the Wampa-Class Heavy Transporters were privileged enough to be fitted with such cannons. Many had to make do with a few mounted E-web Heavy Repeating Blasters. But this one was lucky.




Rear. Before their rebirth as makeshift tanks, these transports carried ore which was loaded through the rear hatches.




Main turret. Note the aiming screen.









How...low...can you go? Ah awkward memories from Toy Story 2...




Aiming screen more clearly visible here.




The roof is removable for playability. What a dirty word that is for teens. But, I'm a TFOL!! So that's totally fine.




The front hatches fold up, revealing the cockpit/command center. The Wampa-Class Heavy Transporters had very little tech installed in them, though some were fitted as communications posts.




Rear hatches opened.




What I just said, but zoomed in.




The troop bay. Most of the Galactic Marines resented traveling in what they dubbed, "Iceboxes", and with good reason. The interior was cold and clammy and smelled of rotting Trandroshan. Not to mention the fact that there was practically no armor on the barely-moving crates. A good shot from a Spider Droid could go straight through the troop bay. A blast from a Tri-Droid could level the whole stanged thing.




Weapons rack.









Cockpit, bird's eye view (hatches opened).




Because of how there are four separate hatches on the front, a lookout can easily be positioned, like so.




Interior with only the crew.




Tank commander.




Well, that's it for the tank. Let's look at the figs. From left to right: Jedi General Ki-Adi-Mundi, Clone Commander Stone (yes he's the one you saw in "The Gungan General"), the tank commander, the tank driver, and the tank gunner.




Galactic Marines!! With no maroon markings! Sorry.




The two Galactic Marines that couldn't fit into the other shot!!




And since we're already here, I might as well show off my custom General Mundi and Phase II Commander Stone.




General Mundi is quite simple and purist. He'll do until I can get the official one. The key is getting the Sir Danju head from KK years ago.




Commander Stone was made with a Shock trooper and a custom, hand-drawn decal made by me. Please tell what you think of it, please!







Well, thanks for looking. Sorry for any blurry pics and for my poor color matching.

Quoting 12Lego Greendude Try to focus on a few colors. otherwise it is a decent moc.
Quoting The Timinater ! awesome design! too many colours, but, like I said, a brilliant design!
Quoting Bob the almighty Woah! That is a cool creation. I would try to make it less multi-colored though. Besides that, it's huge, armed, and nice looking. Great job.
Thanks everybody! It seems like I really will have to work on color-matching, even though it is hard for me (small collection).

Quoting Cody G Well, apart from the color coordination and the sharpied clone, it's a pretty good build! I like the wheeled boxiness, it reminds me of a tiny turbo tank. Try digging through your collection and limiting the pieces to only one or two colors, it will make it look way cooler.
Thanks! I did my best to subtly echo the Turbo Tank's essence in this one, so I guess it worked!
