Theme: Mars Mission
Vehicle: Gungan Submarine
Pieces: A whole lot more than 200
Minifigures: 9 (Can you find them all?)

Background Story
The Martians finally decided that attacking massive nearly unarmed astronaut vehicles was boring and moved on to more chalenging targets. They combined their vehicles to make a super-mothership, the Gungan Sub, and commenced their attack upon the Star Wars universe...

Very cool. Like it better than the one from Ep. I.
For an optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, it is half empty. To the engineer, it is twice as big as it needs to be.

Looks good! The overlapping curve pieces are really nice in the first shot.

Certainly way better than the official MM models :grin: If the sets had looked like this, I would have been more interested in the theme!

Just saw this on Brickshelf, and I love it :wub:
All those colours, wavy lines - most delicious eye candy!

It also has an Aquanauts aesthetic - they're one of my favourite themes, so I like it all the more.

To the barricades!
