Got my Echo Base set today, and been taking a few shots- most up in the photo thread- but i thought id post these seperatly.
Made the Rebel Laser Cannon ages ago just never got round to taking a shot of it, quite small but wanted it to be pretty acurate to minifig scale-

And used the Tauntaun horns to give the Yeti a much more Wampa look- hopefully we'll have a official lego Wampa next year, but until then im kinda happy with this  :classic:

Man, those are terrific!  I'd never think of adding the horns to a yeti.

Could you post the parts you used for the laser cannon, if possible.

Cheers, got the yeti ages ago and tried to make some Wampa horns then, but never really liked how they turned out. The Tauntaun ones while not perfect are a much better match.
I'll up a brickshelf folder with the bits for the cannon- might not be till tomorrow though.

Ok, thanks.

I've used that yeti in a few of my MOC,  but never tried to add horns, so it looked kinda out of place.  :tongue:

Simple, yet effective. I might need to try it out, do you mind? As usual, the photography is spot on. :thumbup:

Wow, I love that turret! It would have been much better than the one in the new set. :thumbup: It's funny how the Snowtrooper still has his helmet and backpack on. :tongue:
Greetings,

I'll repeat what everybody else has said, that's a great cannon!  And I've seen folks use the Yeti before as a stand-in for the wampa, and it never looked right to me.  Now I know why -- the horns were missing.  The snowtrooper is a nice touch, too.  :laugh:

I like the use of Anakin as injured Luke and the cannon looks awesome as well.
