To celebrate my 500th post I wanted to build something a bit special. There’s so much awesome material to work form in the Star Wars universe and the Clone Wars series has seen some fantastic new additions to the repertoire of vehicles and droids we know and love.
So after building my AV-7 from the battle of Christophsis, I decided to dip into C.I.S. territory and build a Techno Union Tri-droid!

The Tri-Droid's spherical head...
...and yes, it does spin!
+++ The Tri-Droid towers over all! +++
Anakin drops in for the attack!
I stuck closely to reference from the Clone Wars film, and equipped it with heavy laser cannons as opposed to artillery cannons. It’s still somewhat a work-in-progress as between taking the photos and posting them I’ve been thinking about alternate ways to connect legs to body - so it can stand on it's own - and other different design tweaks. For now I’m fairly happy with how it looks. Now I just need ADHO to make this 'legal' in his Clone Conflict game...
More photos are here when moderated. Let me know what you think, comments and criticism appreciated as always!
