Here is my addition for the community build. I decided I'd just get it in before I leave for vacation. I may edit this a bit later but wanted to add to the CB. I didn't have time to find some parts (or may not have had them) to make the catapult as smooth as I would have liked . I'm surprised at how few Endor entries there have been. Maybe not everyone likes ewoks as much as I do. :wub: :blush:

Well here it is. Hope you enjoy.

It looks great Darth Yogi :thumbup:. My favourite part of this is the speeder bike.

Nice work, Darth Yogi! The speederbike looks great, and the catapult look like it actually works! The base is nice too, although a bit on the colorful side.

Thanks for all the comments and the blogging.

The catapult would work, but breaks every time because of the weak base.  But when you spin the handle pieces the long rod comes down.  I think I would need 2 people, (one to hold the whole thing down, and 1 to shoot it) to make it work.

Nice scene, Im liking the look of this. The catapult looks great and love the design. Im a bit up in arms about the speeder bike, it great that you've taken your own design with this as TLG has given us a few diffren tversions of this but I feel it a little lacking. But apart from that I love that your original desigh on the speeder.

Thanks.  I agree that there's a bit of unneeded color, but with two of my pirate MOC's I really was short on brown and even had to take out a tree I had planned.  :hmpf_bad:

This looks really cute! I like the way you have made the dirt/forest floor it makes the scene come really nice together. Good job
