After getting the AT-TE with an improved S.T.A.P. I took a closer look at the one included in set 7654 (Droid battlepack) and knew I just had to make a little adjustment. This is the result:

You can now detach it and the droid can still stand.

Yeah I never liked how the STAP couldn't detach from the stand without coming apart :hmpf_bad:

Good job on a simple yet effective mod.

By the way, what piece is that, it looks very unfamiliar(perhaps a modded piece?)

I suppose that it's a pin 3/4.

Looks like a 3/4 pin with a stud and cheese slope.

This is good, but I think the platform the droid stands on could be a little wider.

Yeah, cool I see it now. Future74 put a 1x1 round plate before a cheese slope. It makes it look like a hilt :thumbup:

Nice idea, may have to try it out with my own STAPs.  And the pieces used aren't rare either which is a plus. :thumbup:

Thanks everyone. Yes, it's simple and so much better than the original.

Nice little mod  :thumbup:
I never liked the original version as well.
And since the S.T.A.P now is only attached with one stud,
instead of two to the stand, it is easier to remove as well.

Nice little MOD. You seem good at making things with finicky little pieces, I was never very good at that. I too wasn't sure what pieces you used until someone clarified it.  :blush:

I hate to dissagree with everyone, but I personally like the wings that are usually found on a STAP.  But it is a good mod anyway!
"Fly for the Empire"
"Build it Right, Make it Bite"

Still Mutilating Clones or making them better.  I dunno maybe you should ask them yourself?

You mean on the official blue one from the AT-TE? Those are way too big.

Another solution I think would be to use a minifig neck bracket and a 1x3 plate (sorry if I'm intruding on your topic Future74)

Thanks. Yes, that bugged me as well.

With only three pieces it's easily modded. I havent got a lot of extra lego to spare, except for the very old yellowish pieces, and I dont want to break down SW sets. So that's born out of necessity.  :grin:

No problem. I like the wings as well on the new S.T.A.P., but you'll have to agree that you cant call the 1x3 plate on the old S.T.A.P. a real wing can you  :sick: :wink:

Will try the neck bracket when I'm back home and maybe post a picture of that. Good idea. But I'm not sure on the 1x3 plate, maybe I'll find an alternative for that...

Of course not, those wings aren't half the wings on the STAP from 7675 (yay I agreed).  Hopefully we'll see a STAP mod 2 soon (I don't have the brown STAP)

I just tried it. It looks good, but the trans-piece can't attach to the center stud anymore and it's kind of loose. Probably best for some display.

Didnt have the camera present when I tried it so I havent got pictures. I agree the neck bracket is loose and short when attached.

But I liked the suggestion. :thumbup:

An easier way to make the foot thingy is to just merely put the 1x3 on the the grey 1x1 grey brick with the peg hole. That's what I did.
When people are force to look at a glass of water that is exactly half-full, some will say
that is is half-full and some say it is half-empty.
However, the world is controlled by the people who say
"Hey! My glass had more in it. And it was a different glass! Who's pinching my beer?!?!"  
Any one who could create Doctor Who, Monty Python, and is also the home of Terry Pratchett must be cool.
