After I finished with my Basilisk Snow Droid for the EB Snow Box Derby, I couldn't just scrap it- no, I had to build the real thing. So, I modded and modded until it didn't look a whole lot like the original. Here's what I came up with:

It is flexible (one joint midsection, one tail) because I assume that the real thing would straighten out, too, and not just stay permanently bent over. It fits a fig, too.

Beautiful! Just like the one from Knights of the old Republic and the Force Unleashed. You matched the design well, though it is a little small, and I still wonder how the mandalorians breathe in space even though there's no cockpit!  :tongue:

Two thumbs-up!  :thumbup: :thumbup:

Amazing MOC Mr. Mandalorian  :thumbup:  :thumbup: . The MOC is simply and amazing beautiful and to be honest an almost perfect incarnation of this difficult to get vehicle  :sweet: . The SNOT is great and amazing and really adds a beautiful aspect to the look of the MOC. Maybe if you have enough pieces you can build the Basilisk War Droid of Chopp´aa of TFU and make a custom minifig for him  :grin: . Great MOC  :thumbup: .

Beautiful, truly. Best moc I've seen for at least a half-year. I love the utilisation of those rather new grill pieces. I didin't even know that Basilisks had engines at the back. Go hide it! Revan's coming to dismantle yours!

I certainly don't remember this from the Force Unleashed, where did you see it? Possibly the junk yard level? And as for your second question, I suppose they had a gas tank with them when going into space (how creative).

That's great although I always thought of them as being red for some reason.  They're in Force Unleashed, huh?  I'll look into that.  I've only seen one picture from a Knights of the Old Republic comic.  Have you seen this LEGO Basilisk?  http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/7332  That model is probably why I see them as red.
I am a fanatical purist.  Keep your evil decals and Brick Arms away from me.

Like KoTOR II but think is seems rushed?  The fine folks at Team Gizka are out to fix it!

Maybe you don´t own the version of TFU were it appears. It only appears in the Wii version in a special level where you go to rescue one of the members of the senate who creates the rebel alliance cause he is captured by mandalorians (Personally this is my favorite levelof the game and the best boss after Darth Vader  :thumbup:  :cry_happy: )

1. Not to burst your bubble, but it is in the PS2 version also. Don't feel special because its on the wii.

Maybe Motti just didn't finish the game yet.

and

2. The senate member is helping to create the alliance.

Their armor is airtight, so I suppose they can just attach a tube or something and off they go...?

I loved that level. I don't think I could make his basilisk though- it has these wierd plates that stick out, like armor over armor. Seems hard to do.

In the Bespin level of the Wii and PS2, and maybe others.

Didn't the one from KOTOR II look completely different? It looked more like a ship. Maybe KOTOR I?

I haven't seen it, no. Now that I look, I can't find many lego ones.

We're not feeling special. It's nice to have the level because the 2 systems with bad graphics (wii & PS2) get a little something that the powerful systems(xbox 360 and PS3) don't. :tongue:

Wow, this looks just like the Chop'aa level from TFU. Absolutely flawless.

It was so fun whooping this thing's butt on my PSP! :P

Well, I was going to make an X-wing for the Snow Box derby, but then I figured, "If my screen name is Mr. Mandalorian", shouldn't I make something more fitting? And this sort of sprang out. Plus, I had a bunch of bley parts leftover from the Magnaguard Starfighter. :grin:

Before I figured out how to 'stun' it, it was the one whooping my butt.  :blush:
