When Nahdar Vebb saw an opportunity to kill Grievous, he acted against Fisto's orders and dueled the general. The Mon Calamari was then slain by Grievous.

As this is my 2000th post I wanted to make a special, accurate MOC to post. This was really a simple build but there was some work in getting Grievous posed.

Built April 2011

Since I've also been on for a year I thought a look back on the last year of my Star Wars MOCs posted here would be approiate.

Nice job, Masked! Minifig positioning is nice, but I think the vig itself is a tad on the plain side. More greebling! SNOT base!

Other than that, it looks terrific, and congratulations on your anniversary. Run down and get yourself a Star Wars Fan Tag now. :sweet:

Hello!

I can remember that sad scene with the over-confident Jedi Knight. Well set in motion and a nice corridor as well. :classic:

Cheers,

Wow I never knew how disproportionately small the official GG fig is compared to regular minifigs (or it's the Nahdar fig that is too big). The vig is nice, though I have to agree it could use a few more greebles and details. Still, nice work and congrats on your 1st year-anniversary here in EB Duke MB! :thumbup:

Actually if you think about it Nahdar is quite a bit taller then your average minifig.  Because of his head. :wink:

Oh hey!  I didn't realize I was a Duke now.....

Yeah, Mon Cals are a couple plates taller than most 'figs. But I agree, I didn't realize Grievous was this short. I think TLG might have made him too hunched over. Battle pose, I guess. His head position is more like the one he assumed at the beginning of the duel with Obi-Wan in Sith.

Although someone stealing your MOC is terrible, I think it is the greatest compliment someone can give you.  :laugh: , good thing people know credit is due where it is deserved though  :sweet:

Don't tell me this guy was seriously trying to pass off all those MOCs as his own.

He wasn't. If you read the comments on the main swipe (Rook's C-9979), he readily gives credit to Rook when a commenter suggested it. I think he was just trying to publicize neat creations he'd found.

Anyways, let's not turn Masked's MOC topic into a discussion on pic copying.

Yeah that's what I think about this.  I have no idea what the rest of the post said but one of them had my name and a link in them so that's good.

Wow, Rook sure chewed him out. But I digress. This deserves its own thread.

The others where angry at Jurassic for plagiarism, but He said He was just showing off your work not passing it off as His.

According to Justin, one of brick busters members, he was blocking users who called him out on it. That credit wasn't there right after he was called out on it. My guess is flickr told him he'd be banned unless he gave credit.

Anyways, I failed to leave my thoughts on the vig. Nice work here, I like your subtle incorporation of dk tan.
