Wow Dapper-D2, this is so much better than the first version, I can't remember if I commented on it but that version was great but this is so much better, the detailing (the dint in the front, the damaged engine, and especialy the cockpit) is absolutely fantastic. The astromec is a big improvement on the last one (if you don't mind me saying) it looks much neater and more finished.
Thanks Mr. Man! EB can be a tough crowd, so I knew if I didn’t make significant improvements it would not be well received. Believe it or not I have made some minor improvements to the Phat version and will be updating those photos in the near future. I also agree with you on the astromech.

Now this is what I call an improvement! What a great landspeeder you have there - it's sleek, it's SNOT and detailed. I'd alreadt told you this about your previous version, but this windscreen really works perfectly for the landspeeder. Way better than the sleek, but not-accurate windscreen given in 8092
. Last but not least; nice work on the irregular engines and interior, those blaster pistols really work well as a steering wheel.
I almost forgot to comment on the little fella; what a nice and cute astromech he is (any plans on making more of them?).
Thanks Hollander! This will probably be my last landspeeder for a while, although I do have some ideas for a CHIBI and MOOD scale version.
People seem to like the astromechs, so I’ll keep them coming.

Great MOC, I like the handlebar of this perfect landspeeder!
The R2 unit looks like the real one in the movie! Funny dialogue with uncle Owen
