Here's my entry for the battlepack contest: Jedi Mission! I don't think there's anyone who doesn't like Jedi (Sith excepted) and seeing an army of them i.e. Battle of Geonosis, is awe inspiring! I've seen Jedi battle packs in other toy-lines and thought "wouldn't it be just sweet if LEGO made one?". Failing that, wouldn't it be just fine if I made one?!
From peacekeepers to soldiers, the Jedi are the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy. The swift Jedi Speeder is ready for action with flick-fire missiles and storage compartment. Meanwhile the Jedi Youngling practices using a Training Remote. Use the force! Create and customise your own Jedi army!
Set name: Jedi Mission
Set number: 2009
Theme: Star Wars
Release Date: 2009
Price: I made this!
Pieces: 61 (Speeder - 48, Accessories - 13)
The minifigs' parts can be switched to create many combinations of Jedi. Originally I had 3 humans, but I thought 2 would keep these Jedi more diverse. Besides that I thought it'd be cool to have a Rodian and Mon Cal Jedi! I thought it'd be interesting to create a Youngling too with a Training Remote accessory. There's a black hair piece included in the 'set' which I haven't pictured here.
Jedi Speeder Front
Originally started out as a DC0052 and ended up as this!
Jedi Speeder Back
Wing and engine detail. This came out a wee bit grainy so I'll probably retake it.
So there you have it! This is what one of my ideal battle packs would be. It's pretty much checklist of lots of things I think are cool! Hope you like it.

Good luck to everyone taking part in the contest!
