Siggy-Andre's Jedi Interceptor . I had recently had a minor lapse into "Star Wars-mania," so I decided to channel my excitement into a MOC. Here we go... . I was heavily inspired by the concept behind that of legorevolution's Interceptor, however, the designs for this are completely original. Enjoy!
Master Windu: "Okay, Yoda, what's next on today's agenda?"
Master Yoda: "Inspect Andre Benjamin's starfigher, we must."
Windu: "I'm starting to have second thoughts about letting him customize his own ship..."
Yoda: "A feeling that this is over our budget, I have."
Siggy-Andre: "Heyyy, Masters! I'm stoked to be able to show you my ride; can't wait to fly this into the heat of battle!"
Windu: "I think we're being a bit presumtuous..."
Andre: "So I've equipped this baby with eight antimatter homing missles. Axel here is holding one of them."
Yoda: "Antimatter, hrm? Planning to vaporize some cities, are we?"
Andre: "Hey, ya never know..."
Andre: "I also decided to splurge on these rapid-fire shell launchers!"
Andre: "This here is one of the prototypes!"
Windu: "What's wrong with the laser cannons everybody else uses?"
Andre: "Let's face it. Laser cannons are for sissies."
Andre: "Under the ship I put these awesome takeoff thrusters!"
Andre: "These are my primary thrusters."
Yoda: "Believe that this fighter would fight in a Hyperspace Ring, I do not."
Andre: "Who said anything about needing one of those?"
Andre: "Let's go up on the wings, shall we?"
Windu: "So why didn't we just use the boarding ladder?"
Andre: "Well, I had to cut back somewhere to be able to install these awesome laser tailights!"
Yoda and Windu: *facepalm*
Andre: "Hey, think of it as a 'force-sensitives'-only security mechanism!"
Windu: "Okay, no matter what our conclusion is, the figurehead has to go."
Andre: "Hey, that was the first Super-Droid I ever destroyed!"
Yoda: "Seem to recall it stepping on a landmine while chasing you, I do..."
Yoda: "Ask may I, what are these?"
Andre: "Ohh you're gonna dig this..."
Windu: "You put a La-Z-Boy in the cockpit?"
*insert heavy metal music*
Windu: "AUGHH!! Why in the name of Empress Teta did you put external speakers into the wings?"
Andre: "What could be cooler than zooming into a dogfight to the beat of 'Duri-Steellica'?"
Yoda: "Rather impractical, this is, since travel in space, sound does not."
Andre: "Actually, I thought of that, so I installed these grates just below the speakers that emit a mixture of nitrogen and oxygen; that way, anyone who comes into my 'atmosphere' can be serenaded before they get blown into oblivion!"
Yoda and Windu: "Aughhh!!!"
One hour later...
Yoda: "Andre, thought long and hard we have..."
Windu: "... And we have come to a decision."
Yoda: "Enjoyed your presentation, we did. Displayed great creativity, you did; a quality essential to any great Jedi, that is..."
Andre: "...So I get to keep it?"
Windu: "Heck no. That thing is a couple million credits over our alloted budget for you, and, besides, it's much to flamboyant; we could never have a ship like that represent the Jedi Order."
Andre: "What!? I spent weeks designing this baby, only to get it thrown back in my face!?"
Andre: *sniffles* "You guys are so mean..."
Windu: "... You think we did the right thing?"
Yoda: "Of course. Never allow a Jedi Knight to possess this, we could..."
Windu: "... when we could have it for ourselves! I call shotgun!"
Yoda: "Hoo-hoo! Cruising for some chicks, we should go!"
Just a few bonus shots:
