After i deleted my original Mocpages account, i vowed to never again return to star wars as a theme, however, my love of the genre has finally brought me back. While this website is already clogged with enough mediocre renditions of the Slave 1 (Most of which are set mods) I decided that I would do my favorite starship a little justice for once. Therefore I present to you my rendition of both versions of the Slave 1 in Ultimate Collector Scale.
About this creation
The Slave 1 was one of 6 prototype Firespray-31 patrol craft created by Kuat Drive Yards to protect the asteroid prison world of Oovo 4. When Jango Fett broke into the facility to secure a bounty, his original ship, "Jasters legacy," was destroyed, so he made his escape in one of the facility's patrol ships. To ensure that he would not be pursued, he fired a barrage of concussion missiles into the hangar, destroying the other 5 prototypes and making Slave 1 one of a kind. Over the years, Jango modified Slave 1, making it one of the most feared starships in the galaxy, as well as the reason Obi-Wan Kenobi hates flying. Upon Jango's death in the battle of Geonosis, his cloned son, Boba Fett, took custody of Slave 1, hereby continuing in his fathers footsteps. Adding more and more modifications to his starship, Boba made Slave 1 the one of stealthiest and fastest ships in the galaxy, with a hyperdrive rating of 0.7.
One of the main problems with the actual set was its inability to fit figs through the door.
I fixed this problem by making the ceiling of the boarding ramp move up while the lower door moves down, giving it both movie accuracy as well as allowing minifigures to enter and leave without wanging their head on the ceiling.
The Slave 1's rack of deadly seismic mines, capable of ripping well shielded targets to shreds.
The crew of the Millennium Falcon doesn't suspect that they are being tracked by the most notorious bounty hunter in the galaxy.
The detailing on both of them is phenomenal. I personally like the original slave one better, never liked the color of the blue. Iíve been very busy, between spending nearly all of yesterday trying to upload my new creation, and not being able to, minecraft, and doing various other things, I havenít had time to comment on a lot of stuff I wanted to.
Wow, I have two of the Slave-1 sets and this is much better than either of them , excellent work! I really like the curves of the hull, and the detailing is superior as well. I do suggest if you really want comments, you may want to consider putting your creations in more than one group ;)
