Very good, Moodswim! I'm amazed at how much posability you managed to keep in such short arms and legs! Looks like the Imperials figured that you can only fight cuteness with cuteness.
Thanks for blogging!

A chibi scale model... It's been a while I have that in mind.
Well, I have way too little time to achieve all the ideas I have. So, I focus in SW and UCS, which is special to me. :)
I like this model. Especially the scout trooper.
Thanks! I'm sure building in UCS scale is VERY time-consuming and you're great at it, so I wouldn't worry about other scales.

This has got to be my favorite of all your Chibi builds. The Scouts helmet is just amazing.
One would think that it would be nigh impossible to capture all the curves, but you've translated them into simple LEGO shapes perfectly.
The 74-Z does look a little blocky, but with this style of figure, it fits in just right.
Thanks, Doc! I feel with any figure build, especially one where the head is ENORMOUS
, that it will be the most important part and the focal point of the model. So, I worked the most on getting the head to look as accurate as possible. I wanted the speeder to look somewhat accurate and recognizable, but still chunky and chibi-like.

This is by far the best thing I've ever seen you build! I absolutely love it. The Chibi characteristics are so evident in this creation.
Thanks, man! I'm glad you like this.
