I've been waiting for TLG to release a new one (maybe with a Lobot and Lando!), but they haven't so, so I made this one. Middle engine thingy is a bit to big, but, whatever. :tongue:

Very nice slope usage, it really captures the 'tricky' curvaceous shape of the twin pods. Good job! :thumbup:

Not bad. It's instantly recognizable. Don't think I'd consider it a substitute for the set, though, because it doesn't fit a minifig.

Excellent mini design there 'Parrothead Rasmus', I agree with everyone so far you have caught the shape perfectly. :grin:
May the brick be with you always ! :grin:

Thanks everybody!

Brickdoctor, I didn't mean for it to be a replacement. Just if anyone was dying to get one and can't justify paying $70 for it on eBay or Amazon, here's another option. That's all. :tongue:

Amazing Parrothead Rasmus, it's funny how its only slightly smaller than the atchual set yet now midiscale, just goes to show how small the real set was.

Thanks Mr. Man. And, yeah, the original is kinda small!

Nice build for the scale.  I think this is probably closer to midi rather than mini.

Great job :thumbup:

Midi? OK, you know what's better than me! I tend to stick to minifigure scaled stuff. :classic:
