After a series of MODs in my previous projects, I decided to create something original that has not yet been done in lego before. One of the more prominent background vehicles in the SW movies that has really caught my attention when I first saw it in RoTS, I'm proud to present to you, The Jedi Shuttlebus.

Posted Image

The Jedi shuttlebus, also known as the Jedi shuttle or Senate shuttlebus or Senate speeder bus, was a model of airbus used on Coruscant during the final years of the Galactic Republic by members of the Galactice Senate and the Jedi Order. - Wookieepedia

A closer look inside:

The front can accomodate astromechs (Left) and the Pilot station at the back of the shuttlebus (Right)

How big is this thing? Technically, this shuttlebus is 48 studs long and 8 studs wide. The comparison photo below shows its relative size to other SW vehicles. I tried to be as accurate as possible with the right proportions, and I think it turned out pretty well.

The Inspiration: The real Jedi Shuttlebus (as it appeared in this scene in RoTS).

Same here  :laugh:  I did that with 1111.
Very accurate to the original KDM, Im liking your custom stickers more and more seeing them on your MOCs. :thumbup:
The whole construction looks very sturdy and Aerodynamic - sleek.  :wub:
The purple tan combo looks great!
The door - hatch is spot on, when I first saw the pic, I thought, 'I wonder if he has done the hatch?'
Overall very nicely done! Im looking forward to the "revisiting of an old moc!" should be exciting. :sweet:

Very cool!  It's really amazing how accurate it looks.  In the picture with the passengers Yoda looks very bored.  It's like he's thinking about what groceries he needs to pick up when the bus reaches the supermarket. :laugh:  :yoda:

Hey, it's not so strange; I pointed out post 1138 in (I think) the 2011 Rumors thread.

I really like the curves on this vehicle, it's one of the more notable civilian vehicles on Coruscant that I like. The only little nitpick is that yours doesn't have quite the same flange on the bottom like the 'real' one, but I don't know of any simple way to add that into the studs-up design of your MOC.

Thanks Comm. Fox! I really made it a point to have a functional opening door hatch, that was one of the coolest feature of the shuttlebus I saw in the movie.

Yeah, it is the only feature of the shuttlebus. At least, there aren't any flick-fire missiles. Posted Image

Great MOC!  :thumbup:

The custom decals detract a bit from the overall look, but I see why you wanted to use the Slave 1 windscreen instead of working out some more brick heavy solution as you did in the back.

Ahsoka: "Are we there yet?"
Anakin: "Patience, my young padawan."
Obi-Wan: "You're not that old either."
Yoda: "All of you, quiet be!"

:wink:
Brick or treat!

I really like this Coruscant vehicle, you have really mad a great Jedi Shuttlebus.
You've captured the looks perfectly, but why is the tan color so strange looking at some places?
The stickers you've used look really well done, on that big cockpit piece.  :classic:

Yeah it was quite hard to pull that-off with current design, I just did what I could do to as much as apossible replicate the flange of the real shuttlebus.

Thanks Skafte. I actually am also not a fan of those decals. <Darn those peeling stickers..> A better solution would have been painting the cockpit, but I wasn't ready to 'risk' yet that useful cockpit piece.

I appreciate the kind words the Inventor. Posted Image Uhmm, those strangely colored tan pieces are actually painted parts, that was the closest color match to TLG's tan available in our place. It does look weird but I just have to look at those uneven colors as a something of a 'wear-and-tear' surface effect of the real shuttlebus .

I'm glad you liked it ceroknight. Those parts are purple, but due to my amateurish photography skills (bad lighting - too much glare/light I guess), and repeated photoshopping, the color turned to blue in the edited photos.

Lovely shuttlebus, KDM! :thumbup:

Very detailed and movie-accurate! The stickers are very well-applied too! It's a shame its not purple and that the base isn't quite the right shape (that's what I noticed about the door). Still, its an excellent representation!

Good work! :classic:

As the picturesque were loading I was formulating commentary I'm how much it loomed like the movie version,  but it looks like that was your inspiration.

Great job, it really looks accurate.
