So I was browsing through the Brickshelf recent pages when a couple of SW figs caught my eye.

First was a 3-legged R2D2 by PepaQuin.

I like how he used the new 1x1 slope to finally give R2 a middle leg, maybe TLC will pounce upon this in the future.

Next were 2 great custom Ep III clones by Blasterman.

I really like the detailing on the Red clone, much better than what TLC has produced. But still I wish we had more normal clones :/

Jon.

I also like the 3rd leg on R2D2. I will have to copy this idea onto some of my dioramas because it is so great!

LEGO could do that, too.  Why don't THEY come up with these ideas?  |:|

cause they can't be bothored.

But what is that piece for R2D2's third leg? or is it a custom piece?

Its not a custom piece, its just a new piece in white (the one from the police and fireman new sets - they are in red and blue - sorry don't know the name in English) + a technic piece to attach it.

EDIT: check the link below and you will no what piece i am talkÁng about and in what sets they are available in white ;)

I found a few new nice updates in Jeffs folder today.

Firstly a, rather disturbing, belville clone trooper  *wacko*
http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?i=1181409
which actually looks ok.. don't call me insane!

Next is a darktrooper from battlefront,
http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?i=1181391
which has a nice modified jetpack.

Last is a modified sandtrooper,
http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?i=1185640
which has a few custom parts added as well a a white shoulder padroun.

Lately I have been hooked to Blastermans minifig gallery, mainly because of all the great Star Wars figs he has been making lately.
Check it out here.

Jon.

That's a very clever solution for R2's third leg! If only I had some extra 1x1 slopes *wacko*

At least its not from larger sets ;)
