Hi, yesterday I had a little time and started playing with few bricks; after a while, an idea began to crawl to my consciousness. Adding brick to brick, shaping it, I finally got a Mini (or Micro) General Grievous Starfighter.

Really well done. You did a great job with only a few bricks, something i consider very difficult. You used well the different kinds of pieces to make a nice snot construction. Congratulations  :thumbup:

I would have preferred more than one pic of this beauty, but I have decided to let this slip through the rules of the Star Wars indexes.  :tongue:
Thanks for sharing it LuxorV and hopefully you'll do more of these?

Wonderful little piece of art, LuxorV. :sweet: I'm going to go with what KimT said about being nice, small, and smooth, like a MINI is supposed to be.

Yes it is, to a reasonable account; of course, you don't have to stress the 'wings' connections too hard :wink:

To tell the truth, I wasn't even aware of the existence of an official version when I made this. Only later I discovered it. And, I must say I agree with you: mine is better :tongue:
