Boba Fett jumped down from the cockpit of Slave I with a clang onto the cold metal floor. He was interrupted during his hunt for Jalin Tochus by the Dark Knight himself, Darth Vader. He was told he would be payed a handsom price to end his already handsomly priced hunt for Tochus, if he would attend a meeting arranged to discuss a new target. So here he was, standing in Docking Bay 638 of the Executor, the Sith Lord's own personal flagship. His partner, Dengar, landed beside him with a grunt. “So,” Said Dengar, throwing is blaster over his shoulder in case of any “unwanted trouble”. “Where to next? Just then, a large door opened above and in walked the tall black-amored sith who had arranged the meeting. His suit was as black as a Klithor worm hole, and he looked like he could destoy light just as easy. “I think we're about to find out.” Answered Boba, putting a hand on his own weapon. As the Dark Sith stalked down the stairs, the Stormtroopers hurried into two lines and stood strait with their blasters held out. Vader walked between the rows of his minions with his long dark cape flowing behind him. He towering over the Stormtroopers, and even Boba. The Sith Lord stopped just in front of Boba and Dengar. “Welcome.” greeted Vader, with his long intensified breaths following. “I am glad you accepted my invitation." He halted his sentance to breath more air through his dark mask. "To show my gratitude, here is a gift.” Said Vader as he gestured his hand toward to Stormtroopers. With a, “Yes sir!” the two white soldiers hurried away, returning with a body encased in carbonite. It was Jalin Tochus! “He is alive, just as Jabba ordered.” Breathed Vader. Boba nodded. “Glad to be here.” Once again Vader walked between the two rows of Stormtroopers until his midight colored cape dissapeared behind the metal doors. “Nice guy.” Boba turned to see a large grin stretched accross Dengar's scarred face. “Shall we share the prize?” Boba Fett ignored him and turned toward the two Stormtroopers carrying their “gift”. “Put him in the back of the ship.” Boba ordered the two Troopers. “And make sure you don't touch anything. Got it?” Which was more of a threat than an order. “Yes sir!” Answered the two Stormtroopers as they hurried away. Two more Stormtroopers marched up beside the bounty hunters. “Lord Vader commanded that we escort you to the command bridge.” Said the Troopers. Boba nodded and followed the two Stormtroopers through the long gray hallways of the Executor. As they were walking, a small mouse droid rolled up beside the company and beeped annoyingly. Boba stopped to raise a heavy metal boot and crushed it down into the top of the mouse droid, a small fireworks display following. He continued walking and Dengar chuckled. “Why do you have those pesky things buzzing around the place anyway?” Dengar asked the Stormtrooper to his left. But the two soldiers never turned their heads to answer. Boba stared into visor of one of the Stormtroopers, wondering if his fathers face lie inside. As they entered the elevator that lead to the bridge, Boba lifted his hands, imagining the time that he held his fathers mask alone in the middle of the battle scarred Geonosian arena, after it had been cut off by that Jedi filth. There were two reasons he had accepted the Sith Lord's offer. Number one was that he had heard rumors that the last remaining Jedi was traveling with Han Solo and his crew. The second reason was the credits. Both were sufficient. His thoughts were interrupted when the elevator door to the bridge slid open. As he looked in, he saw four other bounty hunters. Bossk, a green, slimy scaled Trandoshan, who was an old partner of his, Zuckuss, who was a member of the short, incect-like Gand Species, and two droid bounty hunters who he did not recognize. Dengar and Boba stepped out of the elevator into the command bridge and the Elevator doors closed behind them. “Welcome.” Said Vader, lifting his arms in greeting. “Now our meeting can begin.” Boba walked over to stand between the tallest droid and Bossk. “I never expected to see you again Boba Fett.” Growled Bossk with his strange gurgling in his throat. “I thought Aurra Sing killed you when we were searching for Strat Trodus on Tarris.” Boba Shrugged. “I'm hard to kill.” He noticed that the imperial troopers in the control bunker below where whispering together. “Bounty hunters!” He overheard them say. “We don't need their scum here.” said one of the troopers angrily. “Yes sir.” Another answered. Bossk Looked down and growled something Boba didn't catch. “Scum?” Thought Fett. “Well apparently you do need our 'scum', or we wouldn't be here would we?” He knew he could silence the two failures below him with two single shots, but he wouldn't want to interrupt their meeting by making a mess of the floor. Once the bounty hunters stopped conversing, Vader started speaking. “I trust that you all know why you are here.” Vader began as he walked around the bounty hunters. “To put your skills to use.” Vader stopped in front of Dengar. “To hunt.” Dengar smiled behind his cloth mask. “Aye.” Vader continued walking. “Han Solo has escaped the ice planet of Hoth with a rather precious cargo. Princess Leia Organa, the leader of the Rebel Alliance. I will not afford you too much information as I understand that you are all quite capable of detecting it yourselves. As I am sure you all understand, there will be a substantial reward for the one who finds the Millenium Falcon. You are free to use any means necessary, but I want them alive!” He stopped in front of Boba this time. “No disintegrations.” Said the Dark Lord, raising his finger in the air inches from Boba Fett's face. “As you wish.” Answered Boba. Though he was slightly disappointed. He had met Han Solo before. In fact, he knew him quite well. But he had learned to loath him after an unfair bet or two. He would have liked to kill the Jedi himself too, but that would risk loosing his pay. And besides, even the mighty bounty hunter Boba Fett wouldn't want to challenge the anger of the even mightier Sith Lord and ruler of the Galaxy. Just then an Imperial trooper ran in. “My Lord! We have them.” Darth Vader looked across the bridge out into space. “Captain! Fire at will!” The man who had run in saluted. “Yes my Lord.” He answered quickly. “Fire at will!” The captain called out to the multiple men in the control bunkers. They all turned to their control desks and fired the large cannons of the Executor. Boba Fett new immediately who they were firing at. The ship rocked a bit as the laser cannons fired away at their target. “I trust that you will not fail me as your predecessor did.” Said the Sith to the captain. The man looked back at Vader with a look of terror etched into his face. “I shall try.” Stuttered the captain. “If you can not accomplish even a task as small as this one captain Needa, I believe you know what the consequences are.” Captain Needa opened his mouth to answer, but Darth Vader was already walking toward the elevator. Captain Nedda closed his gaping mouth and swallowed, then turned and rushed toward the end of the command bridge. Dengar walked over to Boba. “We should hurry and leave now before one of the other hunters claim the prize.” He urged Boba. “We should go to the ship now!” Boba clasped a metal covered hand tight over Dengar's mouth. That was all he needed to say. He let go of Dengar's face tearing part of his mask off. “Fine,” grumbled Dengar as he attempted to fix his cloth mask. “But hurry it up! The other bounty hunters have already left!” Boba Fett turned away and set his attention toward the men at the bridge. “They're turning to attack position!” exclaimed Captain Needa surprisedly. Boba Fett wasn't surprised though. If he knew Solo, he knew one of the craziest men in the inner and outer rims of the Galaxy. Suddenly he saw the Millenium Falcon speed over the bridge, nearly crashing through it's large windows. “Track them! Shouted captain Needa once he gained his composure again. "They may be coming around for another pass.” "Captain Needa,” called one of the men in the control bunkers. “The ship no longer appears on our scopes.” “They can't have disappeared!” Said Captain Needa angrily through gritted teeth. “No ship that small has a cloaking device!” The man in the bunker looked back at his monitor squinting just to make sure he was correct. “Well, there's no trace of them sir.” Another man called out to Captain Needa. “Captain! Lord Vader Demands an update on the pursuit.” Boba's smile his behind his mask. Darth Vader would not be pleased. If this man couldn't even accomplish the small task of shooting down a small ship like the Millenium Falcon, even with hundreds of guns at his command, he deserved whatever punishment Darth Vader had implied earlier. “Captain Needa froze where he stood, obviously remembering what had happened to the former commander. Finally he looked up. “Get a shuttle ready.” He stuttered quietly. “....I shall assume full responsibility for loosing them, and apologize to Lord Vader.... Meanwhile, continue to scan the area.” The man standing next to him looked nearly as scared as the captain himself. “Yes captain Needa.” Said the man before hurrying away. Boba Fett stood silently for a few moments, going through all the possibilities in his head. Another imperial trooper walked into the room, and called down to one of the men in the command bunker. “Lieutenant Nolan! Prepare to evacuate the garbage vents in 025 minutes.” The Lieutenant looked up and nodded. Boba looked up quickly as a possibility opened up before him. He turned around and ran toward the elevator only to hear a yell behind him. “Hey!” Yelled Dengar as he ran for the elevator. “Don't think you'll be leaving without me!” Babo Fett lifted his blaster until it pointed strait between Dengar's eyes. “Sorry,” said Boba as the door began to close. “But Solo is mine.”
My first post of 2013! This was a really fun build to... well, build. I'm pretty happy with how the final picture turned out. There are a few things I don't like in this picture, but every time I try to change the lighting, I break something! So I figured, eh, this is fine.
Quoting --R.K. Blast--
Very nicely done. Would just point out though, that in the description, you've said "first post of 2013." -it's 2014! Haha You're a year out buddy. haha But as for the build, very good, yes.
Yes it is 2014, but this was built last year. I haven't posted on Mocpages in almost 2 years because I migrated over to Flickr, but I figured sice Mocpages is where I began posting LEGO, I'd better keep doin' it for a while! If you'd like to see my Flickr page (which has many more photos), just look at my profile here on mocpages and you'll find a link.
