That's actually really nice, especially for your first MOC! :thumbup:

It's pretty accurate, and you made good use of that big piece. I would like to see more of your work in the future. :classic:

Hi there, thank you for sharing this MOC. But in the future, pls. kindly observe proper capitalization in your posts. I've edited the title to a more descriptive one. :wink:

That's a good idea, it would be more accurate. Maybe I'm picky now, but you might remove the 2x2 dome at top, as a probe droid doesn't have one. I would replace it with a longer antenna, as that would increase it's accuracy. :wink: But hey; just do what you like, I'm not here to change your MOC's. :laugh:

Great work 'lego envy', though I happen to agree with your idea of longer arms. :thumbup:

May the Eurobrick be with you ! :grin:

That's easy, black BD arms the bent ones that is....remember in ESB it's arms hung downward if my memory serves me correct, just interlock into the current straight arms. :wink:

i tried them.. when you put them together they fit sideways..

also, somehow i need to add a type of hinge to the arms tyat way they can easily bend.

Try rotating those blue robot hands holding the straight BD arms.....then the curved/bent arms will point downward. :wink:

The new arms are an improvement, but you may want to make them even longer to increase it's accuracy. As you can see here, the arms are not stretched, but they actually hinge at several places.

Hmmm.....I like your use of the drill bit for the base, and I can't wait to see the improvements!

Very nice work, especially for your first SW MOC! It's come a long way since the beginning, and the only criticism that I would have now is that the snow seems a bit too chaotic, but otherwise good job! This would make a great entry for the community build.

Basically it needs to be smooth. I'd say don't have so many random pointy thing sticking out of it and cover as much of it with tiles and slopes as possible.
