Working on it. Looks like I'll be spending a lot of time on LDD this month. :laugh:

Not to mention the time to build sets for Heroica Quest 17.

The Invisible Hand? Or the Belbullab-22? Only the models from the calendar are going to be built, so neither will be seen.

I'm afraid I might disappoint those who were looking for a Moodland-scale build, but I wanted to stick with official-ish scales, here.

Day 2:

It's Miniland-scale Nute Gunray!

Wookieepedia said:

Nute Gunray was a Neimoidian from the planet Neimoidia. Following a stint as Minister for the Trade Federation, he rose in power after the Stark Hyperspace War in 44 BBY, eventually becoming Viceroy of the Trade Federation. Read more...

This isn't an exact rebuild of the Advent Calendar model, as it depicts Gunray as seen in Menace, not CW, but thise Gunray is more easily recognizable.

Very nice. I cant wait for the Republic Gunship.

Any chance you can keep the first post updated with all the models? So we dont have to dig thru comments to find your genius? Thanks

The up-scales figures (I'm not sure what to refer to that as, Legoland scale perhaps?) definitely do not dissapoint. I think the astromech and the Imperial and clone pilots will definitely need to be built.

Well you've certainly set yourself a task; but it''ll definitely be fun checking your Advent calendar MOCs out. Good luck!
So far the models you've created are great. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest. Good luck!

MINI-land scale (1/20). You can see some excellent examples here.

So how's the mechno-chair coming along?

Thank you, I completely blanked for a second on that. Also, nice examples, and I am indeed looking forward to the mechno-chair as well (the original LEGO version is too disappointing.)

I. Hate. Mecho. Chairs. :angry:

Day 3:

It's Miniland-ish-scale Mecho Chair! Probably a little bigger than Miniland-scale, but I can't see any way to make this general design any smaller without losing a lot of the shaping and detailing.

some neat stuff :thumbup:

it took me until day 3 to realize you were following the official advent calender models, before I thought it was just whatever SW models you felt like :grin:

Good work, doc. This is much more recognizable than the official minifig-scale version. :laugh:

:laugh: I know. I was reading Reasonably Clever's Advent Madness today, and Chris Doyle goes,

Chris Doyle said:

On the Star Wars side of the Advent we have….well….um….a thing. I had to go looking on-line to discover that this is supposed to be a battle droid of some kind. Maybe it’s from the Clone Wars show or something. Whatever it is, I sure didn’t recognize it.

So my personal choice for the day is going to have to be with our fun-loving officer. So far neither calendar is doing particularly well in my eyes…but the month is still very young.

How about you? Did you know what that Star Wars thing was supposed to be?

I am once again very impressed, and I am glad you share the hatred of the mechano-chair that has affected the forums.

I wouldn't say I hate it, I just think it was a really bad concept. It's completely organic in some spots, mechanical in others, Steampunk-ish in some areas, and doesn't look Star Wars-y at all. I actually thought TLG did a pretty good job of pulling it off at roughly minifig scale without any new elements or illegal connections. I blame Lucas for the bad points of this one.

Day 4 is upon us!
Posted Image
It's Midi-scale OG-9 Homing Spider Droid! This one was a challenge, mostly because I started with a bigger sphere to give it better details and make it closer to the size of Day 1's model, but then it was too close to minifig-scale, so I cut back to this, complete with 3-wide Lowell sphere. (its missing a couple jumper plates, actually, because of various things like lack of support for illegal connections and the need for attachment points for the legs) Speaking of the legs, I'm not really happy with them, but this is the best I could come up with.

The OG-9 homing spider droid, sometimes referred to as the spider walker, was a droid walker manufactured for anti-vehicular combat by the Commerce Guild before and during the Clone Wars. Read more...
