I saw that this morning as well. It looks as if it is an 'official' set. Whoever created it did an extremely good job with it. The TaunTauns actually look similar to the 'generic' animals that LEGO produces regularly (like the Gungan Kaadu's...). Also the low piece count with nice detail illustrates how LEGO could easily make a set like this some day... Here's to hoping...

yeah your rite about the tauntauns looking pretty close to there generic animal like the gungans kaadu's...and also as you said the low piece count if TLC made this as a set im guessing it might be pretty cheap....still none the less it looks great

He calls himself "tstoeger" and posted a thread over at fbtb.

It is a very good set, if only LEGO could see it and make it...

These are really cool.  I love the guns.  I'd love to see Lego make this.  The set # 4568 is a Racers set.

Hey Euro dudes

tstoeger here from the other side of the big pond

one of the guys from FBTB told me you guys had a threed going ...cool

thanks so much for all the kind words

your right A probe droid is must have....... I was planning on this
the guns are dupes of the "little armory" ones (love that stuff)
http://www.littlearmory.com/

and yes I was asking what i should do next
maybe a Bantha or a Ronto...any other ideas????

Lego could make a Ronto easy they have most of the parts from there Dinosaurs

Congrats tstoeger for this great Moc and welcome to our friendly boards ;)

I would love to see you version of the Bantha with a couple of sand people ;)

One ?: how did you draw your taun-taun?? It really looks like the OT copycat.

See you soon ;)

The belt on this minifigs can be made with regular lego.
Use the piece that luke has on his back in the dagobah set and put in between the legs and the torso.
