MOC: X-Wing and TIE Fighter

I built these a few months ago (and very quickly) for Star Wars Day 2012 Toronto, which takes place on "May the 4th be with you".

While I did build them very quickly (2-4 hours for each), I am pretty happy with them.

Here's a link to my Star Wars set on Flickr, where I have a few more shots of each: Star Wars Set

Enjoy!

Neat MOCs! It's interesting to see them in that scale. For some reason they remind me of Chibis. :wacko::laugh: Nice work!

Nice...they also look inspired by the defunct Hasbro Galactic Heroes line...if only they came out with the TIE! Nice work! :thumbup:

Thanks Dapper-D2, Bob De Quatre, and Bilbo Baggins!

If you look in the description, you'll see that was my intention. :classic:

I definitely took a look at those while working on these. Wish I had those toys when I was a kid. LEGO was pretty good though. :tongue:

I just think these are fantastic, really nice job.

A chibi trench to follow???

I have always felt that the chibi style more suits

our pal the minifig moreso than the current 'tru to scale'

models produced.

While the quest for accuracy and perfection has its own appeal, these chibi models do take the seriousness down a notch or too and add a comical note to these two classic fighters for a change. They certainly made me smile, so well done on these fun creations! :laugh:

Those are pretty cute! :thumbup: The TIE fighter has to be my favorite of the two.

Well, this is a prime example of purpleparadox not paying enough attention! :laugh: Oh well, awesome MOCs.

Thanks everyone!

Thanks, and while that sounds awesome, it'll probably never happen. There's always this though: Chibi Star Wars MOCs in Si-MOCs Trench (The TIE Advanced is dr_Spock's I believe)

I like these quite a bit. :thumbup:

Great work, Nick. Congrats on being featured on The Brother's Brick too. http://www.brothers-brick.com/

(Yes, that's my chibi Darth Vader fighter chasing your X-Wing down Simon's trench. Lots of fun at Star Wars Day in Toronto.) :classic:

Very cute and nicely built! My only suggestion would be to use slope bricks for the back's of the X-Wing's wings (if that makes sense). :classic:

Adorable and very cool at the same time... :thumbup:

May I ask what you don't like about the TIE fighter? I personally dislike the way the cockpit piece forces me to have square edges around the cockpit.
