Hey all, I have done a moc of the classic Dewback for the awesome looking new 9490 sand-troopers to ride on. Of course we already have the Dewback that comes with the retired 4501 Mos Eisley Cantina but these are expensive and rare so I thought a purist version would make an interesting little project.

Just for a bit of fun I have added a poll to engage what the members opinions are on this version versus the OG, as usual CC welcome, enjoy

Hello!

Yes, it's great! I appreciate brick-built creatures! It's fantastic you collected so many appropriate sand green pieces to build this Dewback. :classic:

Cheers,

Wow, this is better than the original Brickmamba, it looks very like a Dewback, and looks fantastic with the new Sandtroopers.

Agreed!  This has a certain character that the mid-fig version doesn't have.  Thumbs up!!

I like it ,but  the tan piece in his mouth is odd to me. Is that teeth or part of the harnes? Other than that it looks great.

This is excellent. You've perfectly captured the Dewback in a style that looks totally LEGO. :thumbup:

Excellent work! :blush: Like others have said, the brick-built quality adds alot more character to the creature than the molded version. :wub:   My only suggestion would be to try and make the legs, feet, tail poseable by using hinge plates/bricks. :thumbup:

Great work 'Brickmamba' :thumbup: , I actually like both the Lego moulded and your brick-built one the same so I can't decide. :blush:

Yes the round tan piece is suppose to represent mouth/teeth

Yes for sure, at the moment the head is the only part that is hinged, making the legs and tail move would be the next evolution of the build, definitely something to think about

This is an awesome looking Dewback! I definitely prefer your brick built over the molded version and I just cast a tie breaking vote.

I like both versions, but there is always something extra cool about a brickbuilt creation - especially one so skillfully crafted as this one  :thumbup:

You have caught the features of the dewback superbly and most importantly retained the creature's charm.

Looking very much forward to your instructions - this is simply made for the 'droid escape' set  :wink:

Thanks, I reckon Dewie can do with some refinement so will hold off on any instructions until then

I've always been a fan of brickbuilt SW creatures, from BaronSat's Bantha to ACPin's Rancor, and this Dewback certainly ranks among them as one of my favorites! This is indeed a very good alternative to the rare and expensive official LEGO Dewback, and the good thing about this is you could even have a different color variant as you've shown with your tan Dewback. Excellent work overall Brickmamba! :thumbup:

Wow my first SW blog, thanks! It is interesting that you mention BaronSat, a lot of the inspiration is from his style of builds, he is truly a pioneer in MOCing  :thumbup:

Excellent work Brickmamba! He's very cute  :wub:  :wub:

Another vote for the purist version, and it would be great to have a copy of the instructions!  :wink:   I'm surprised that Lego hasn't released another version of the Dewback, it was have made a great addition to the Droid Escape set.

I know it's your build ,but how would it look or work if the front leg was the same as the back? I was just looking at it and it might look good... :sweet:
