Hi everyone !
I'm not sure if this disqualify it because it's not totally a machine, and I don't have any photo gallery for more pics as I only took these 5.


Self-Propelled Dewback Dew Drinks Dispenser

Dewback Dew is a thirst quenching drink on Tatooine.
Here we have a father and son selling the drink as their livelihood.
Every morning they ride this beast to the busy Mos Eisley streets and setting up their stall.
Sometimes the beast throws tantrum and refuse to walk when its hungry.
It's human master will cut some green moss growing on its head and feed it to the beast.

During transportation, the signboard folds down and shade the beast.

Signboard unfolds to attract attention.
Pushcart for serving the customers.
Water tank for storing the Dewback Dew.

How are Dewback Dew made ?

right

Thats no dew !
Dewback Dew is made from Dewback Drool ! :tongue:  YUCK !
There's a transparent funnel to collect the drool and a pump to suck the liquid in.
4 backpacks on top to hold their belonging.

Now they are open for business.
The 2 blue tubes are coolant to chill the drink for the dispenser.
Dewbacks are reptiles and their cold-blooded nature are harnessed to provide cool drinks for those who can afford it.
6 taps in multi-colours.

I forgot to take a shot of the 2 minifigs riding the beast, too late I already dismantled this.
Counted around 160 to 180 pieces in total.
Hope this provided some amusement for you.

Didnt you say that you were going to enter the contest? Since last time they said that you could vote for yourself I do not see the reason why it wont happen again. So please dont give people false hope. :classic: sorry for going off topic by the way.

EPIC WIN.

Someone give this man a medal, this is the most original and funnyiest entry out there so far.  It also looks like a nice throw together MOC; great trans words on the top too. :thumbup:

This is easily the most inventive and creative entry, but I have to wait for the contest to end before I could dub it best overall.

I would also like to say how great your MOC is!  It's really just so funny and cute, and the style of everything thrown together on top makes it work really well with the backstory.  If it had been unjumbled, it just wouldn't have looked authentic!  Really great work all around.
