First saw combat long before the first episode of SW, this little tank has been Yoda's favourite vehicle.

Although it has never been shown in the movie or the CW series, Yoda's tank is a well known, fearsome fighting machine.

It's destructive 200 mm super mega blaster laser energy cannon once took out a Clone Turbo Tank in a friendly fire accident.

So, here goes:

You know, I have one simple request. And that is to have sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads! Now evidently my cycloptic colleague informs me that that cannot be done.

'mmmm, Yoda want's big boom !' :laugh:
Not bad 'gogocar', a little too simple even by Yoda's standards ! :wink:
And that cannon - really doesn't look like it can really pack a punch ! :grin:
Anyway, not bad bad work and may the brick be with you ! :wink:

Simple. but I have a hard time seeing Yoda in a tank. I too would change the cannon to something other than a flag pole.

I must admit I have expected something bigger after that UCS Y-wing.

Anyway, it's adorable (the tank, not Yoda). :thumbup:

OMG - I didn't know Allo Allo existed outside the UK  :laugh:

This creation is very cute - IMO the gun would be better the other way round though.

Nice tank, but you could've used some technic pins and connectors for the barrel

I would really like to know why people keep bumping old customs in this forum. It's getting rather irksome.

We are big fans of it in Denmark too  :laugh:

However, I do not like Yoda being compared to Gruber - ever though they seem to carry similar weaponry  :tongue:
