I had the idea for this MOC a while ago, when the Cash for Clunkers plan was widespread. This is what happens when Clone Troopers lose motivation...

I think it's pretty much self explanatory.  :wink:

I like it. I think we need some smaller ones plastered onboard some of the cruisers. The only thing I can think of that would have touched this off nicely if it was either commander cody or captain rex standing there with the broom to stick the poster up.

:laugh: This is really clever. Living in the states makes this all the more funnier to me. I personally think it's perfect.

Great and funny!  :laugh:  But it would have been even funnier if a commander sat up the poster...

This is a good idea. I like the MOC itself too, but it would be nice to see the supports made out more than one piece.

Otherwise, great work, great idea!  :thumbup:

There's not much to say about this. It's simply super funny! :grin: A really great real-life adaption for the Star Wars universe! Although I am not from the U.S. we'll probably all recognize the pun, as it's been in newspapers around the world.  :classic:  Great job!

:laugh: This is hilarious! It reminds me of Jay Leno's Cash for Flunkers.  The billboard is very nice too. Fantastic job!
