Someone on Rebelscum found instructions for this MINI Corporate Alliances Tank Droid (6968) on Lego.com:

http://assets.lego.c...ons/4273874.pdf

now there's a possibility that it could come out, but it's most likely cancelled (as this is what I've heard before). It's a shame because I think it looks quite good!

I wouldn't buy it, I don't know what people like so much about these MINIs, other than for parts, they suck :/ .

Yeah I agree, and I actually think that this one looks a bit ugly.

If it did come out it would most likely be a promo, like the ARC-170 and the JSF.

For some reason this has been deleted from FBTB and the thread was locked because this is somehow "stolen info", even though it's from Lego.com *wacko*

I PMed Ace about this, and he's been back on the forum since, but he hasn't replied yet.

Way to go Sam !!!!!!

Once more you posted a valuable and cool info, and FBTB locked your thread !!!!!!! loooooool  :D

And to quote Onions, the Master " uh.. i'm pretty sure that's stolen material. locked." !!! Wow, that is really impressive !!! Thread locked on an assumption and from an info coming from TLC  :D
Next time stomping Mc Daddy, please DO verify sources before locking a thread !!!!

No wonder people have tensions against FBTB !!!!

Yeah, I love FBTB, but I really don't like the Admins' bitter, lock-happy attitudes.

O great you got me all worked up. Now I'm gonna swear at my mum and get banned from the computer. ;)



On Topic: It does come with some nice pieces, I like the trans orange 2x1 bricks and the telephone pieces is good for greebling. I would buy one, but only for the parts.

Just goes to show you how stupid admins are at FBTB. Yeah, go ahead flame me. You all know I'm right.
Anyways, enough with the FBTB rant, here's a "different" version made by a fellow LEGO fan:

Cute little set. Could have been a promotion.

If it comes out I am sure going to buy it. I like the minis and canīt wait for TLC to release more of them. *satis*
So far Iīve managed to get every mini sw set released...But then again I am a dedicated collector and does not think in good, bad or ugly...

Sorry to revive a topic that's been dead for, like, over a year now. But Hey, its Star Wars LEGO season, right?


I found the instructions for this on my hard drive this afternoon. I must've downloaded them when this thread first started. I really quite fancy building this, having every other MINI so far (expect the SD that came with the DS2).

Peeron recognises this set and calls it "Mini Wookiee Attack". No inventory, though. I vaguely recall FBTB having their version of the inventory, but they debated some of the colours. Can anyone help, please?

This mini is exactly a quarter of the size of the system lego one. I beileve both sets of dishes are sand blue in which case the big front disk on this one is the small back disk on the system one (and those are the only two sets the 4x4 disk is in). The 2x2 sand blue disk only comes in 3 other sets all mini TIEs. Little bit of irony there.

The eyes, so problably the 1x2 bricks too are trans-orange, to correspond with the system model. Accordingly, the grill pieces would be dark blue. The rest should be self-explanatory.

I too think this set looks nice but it has almost no value for me. I have the whole first round of SW minis but none of the larger (price or piece wise, not set wise) second round.
