This is my version of Admiral Ackbar. He is the naval commander of the Rebel star-fleet, as well as a master strategist. I know there is a common way to build Ackbar; you put a red dew rag on his head. I've tried that before, but I couldn't stop thinking that he was wearing a hat. So I made my own design. It focuses on the length of his head. To see the real Admiral Ackbar, see pic. 5. Please review, and thanks for looking!
About this creation
Back side. Notice the construction of the head.
In-action shot. I made a custom blaster pistol for him.
The pics "advertising" the Mon Calamari cruiser weren't of the cruiser really, they showed Admiral Ackbar and a pic of an A-Wing in a docking hangar. I agree that the curviness of the cruiser would be hard to pull off, so yeah, I think it'd be a hangar scene of some sort.
Very well done! Focusing on length rather than height is a good approach. Apparently Toys 'R' Us is having this poll for an exclusive Lego Star WarsŪ set, one of the choices being the Mon Calamari Cruiser. If it wins, I sure hope it comes with an Admiral Ackbar minifig! Oh and, be sure to look at my failure attempt at a Jedi Starfighter! :)
