"Although The Saralacc might seem old and battered on the outside, she's got more fight in her than the shiniest ship in the spaceport"- Ned Nebulae
The Sarlacc began her life as a Corellian Yt-1300 bulk cruiser, until she fell into the hands of Ned Nebulae in a high-stakes game of Sabac. Nebulae fell in love instantly, and immediately set to work revamping and re-modeling The Sarlacc into what it is today. Nebulae added 3 high military grade turbolasers, in addition to a new hyperdrive, shield system and engine complex.
The most important and notably addition to The Sarlacc was Nebulae's installation of 3 high power tractor beams. The Sarlacc's signature move is to catch a fleeing ship in her tractor beams and move the vessel in front of the ships forward facing weapons. This is what gives her the name Sarlacc, after the infamous Tatooine Sarlacc which stays stationary and drags its prey to it. Over the years, The Sarlacc has gained more and more battle scars, giving her hull a distinctive pattern of patches and pockmarks. Nebulae jokes that for every bounty he claims The Sarlacc gets a fresh coat of Durasteel, which is shurprisingly accurate.
The infamous bounty hunter and pilot of The Sarlacc, Ned Nebulae, grew up on the mean streets of Corellia. He began his career as a bounty hunter after winning his ship The Sarlacc in a high stakes game of Sabac. Shortly after aquiring his beloved ship, Nebulae suffered an accident while chasing a bounty that sliced half of his body off. Rumor has it that he rebuild himself, with the help of his crew mates EV-(2)R5 and Hank Sprocket, using the parts from an IG-100 series droid. Ever since his rebuilding, Nebulae has claimed a shocking 21 bounties, earning him an invite to the Bounty Hunter Guild, which he promptly turned down.
From left to right: EV-(2)R5, Ned Nebulae, Hank Sprocket
EV-(2)R5: The ship's droid computer and navigator. Famous for his reckless yet successful Hyperspace jumps and spinning maneuvers. EV-(2)R5's intelligence is comprised of an old EV-19 droid torso, 2 R5 series droid heads that all contribute to the droid's unique personality.
Ned Nebulae: The ship's captain and bounty hunter. Known for his cybernetic implants and his sharp shooting with his blaster pistol
Hank Sprocket: The ship's engineer. Sprocket is constantly repairing the ships 3 delicate tractor beams. Sprocket can also hold his own in any kind of skirmish or scuffle.

(I didnt read the subtitle 'bounty hunter MOC' )
Great ship, I love the simularity to the droid tri-fighter!
The engine is a nice touch. And the background story is well thought off.
Could you show us some pictures from the inside/interior?
Of course only when it has an interior.

I certainly don't want to be in your region.
Oh wait I am
Seriously really great build - really does evoke the SW realm. great job!
Though I'm curious how you achieved the triangular shape ?
It looks like a series of off set 1x4 technic bricks?
I'd seek professional help - but I spent the money on LEGO. | flickr

Cool ship, I really like the cast of characters. The ship looks like a Tri-Fighter on steroids. Favorite ship so far. Good luck!
The cast of characters, I agree, are very colourful and excellently put together!
