Hello Star Wars fans,

Here's my new Bantha model. The old one was nice but too big in my opinion. I thnik this one has a better scale compared to the minifigs...
Tell me what you think, comments are welcome.

Looks nice!  :thumbup: Still a little bit too big though.... Maybe a little smaller?

Great work BaronSat, I really like this updated version.  :thumbup:

It's maybe still a little bit to big, but the model looks really nice, I especially like the horns.  :classic:

Man, I don't care if it is a tad big, it looks beautiful.  Besides a new molded one that I doubt LEGO will do anytime soon, this is the best bantga I've seen.

I love it.

Thanks guys.
In fact I was afraid it's too small... hmm...
I made a shot with the Lego Patrol Dewback for comparison, I will put it here later.
In the meantime I hope for more opinions  :classic:

You guys really think it's too big?  I think it looks to be about the perfect size.  Banthas aren't exactly small.

It's cute! I wouldn't mind a few of these at all. :thumbup:

It's very close leaning towards smallish, but that works well here. Since they used actual elephants in costume for the movies, I would imagine that comparing it to the official LEGO elephant would be the best possible guide for accuracy, but I really like this version at this size.

That looks great. Is there any way you can have the fig stand inside the top of the bantha similarly to the molded horses and camels? I always though it looks better than the original brick-built Castle horses.

Hello!

A fantastic representation of the Bantha! Those 1x2 log bricks work perfectly to indicate the long fur of the creature. :classic:

Cheers,

Perfect work once again.
How about you flash us some inventory or instructions for this one?
I'd love to do a Sand People setup once and this could save me from trying to copy or even design a Bantha of my own :grin: :blush:

AWESOME brickbuilt Bantha 'BaronSat' - fantastic detailing - some say it's too big, well you could say it's a big brother to another one eh ? :wink:
Great work again from you and may the brick be with you ! :grin:

If Lego ever made a bantha like this, i'd definetly buy it. Who needs a one piece mold if you can have this instead. Very detailed and in my opinion spot on concerning size.

It's definitely small enough; Tuskens sit atop Banthas, they don't really stradle them. If we compare this to the official Dewback, it's just about right. Great job, I'm especially impressed with the design of the horns.

That's great! Definitly the best bantha I've seen yet- though is the tail really that long?

Great Bantha! Hard to fault any details, it really looks quite realistic. The tan and brown work well and the dark orange saddle looks great.

Ooh, this is an amazing Bantha MOC, great job BaronSat! Posted Image I think the size is just perfectly fine. Besides, the highly-accurate brickbuild of it more than shadows the size issue. I really like the studded skin-effect, gives it the hairy texture of the real creature. I would love to see a herd of these grazing the Tatooine desserts together.

Yes, I'd love the build your Bantha for my Tatooine-Diorama. The Size is well chosen and the "face" (the hardest part imo) is done perfectly! Great work.

Yes, from various photos and sketches I used to create my model it's that long.
