[LDD MOCs] Brickdoctor's 2011 Star Wars Advent Calendar

...Miniland-scale Chewbacca! This was a tough one. TLG already has their own Miniland-scale Chewbacca, which I thought was already a good way to represent both Chewie and the Miniland style of figures. The major change I made is, of course, covering my model in a ton of grille tiles, which I think looks better than the mess of studs on the official model.

That's a nice technique to avoid the grills lining up, and creates some detailing, but the head really seems off.

BTW I actually like Chewbacca's face - it has a fun, space-dog feel. Chewie may be mighty but he is not always intimidating.

It's Miniland-scale Bowcaster! Wow, this was tough. Not so much in the building, but in the concept stage of things. I debated between this and making a bigger replica of a bowcaster, but in the end, I figured that the official calendar provides the accessories for the minifigs, so mine should provide the accessories for the Miniland-figs.

It's Miniland-scale Rebel Pilot! This one was hard, only because LEGOLANDs already have Rebel Pilots that are quite good. The Rebel Pilot's costume, when it comes down to making Miniland-style figures, is rather simple. There really wasn't much I could change from the official model, other than some rearranging in order to recolor some areas.

Not bad, but I agree about the shape of the helmet. The fin just seems too tall, but I can't really think of a way to fix it without changing the whole design of the head.

Midi-scale T-65 X-wing, standing by! Man, I really wish I'd had more time for this one. I think I spent about three-quarters of my spare time yesterday fiddling with the rear half, and then I had to sort of thrown on the front half. I already had a little experience from reverse-engineering the prototype Midi-X-wing from the Yavin IV set, so that helped, but I'm not totally happy with the nose.
Oh, yes, and the wing opening mechanism was shamelessly stolen (and compacted) from fallenangel.

This is easily the beast day so far Brickdoctor . That X-Wing is a little beauty.
