It's certainly a new way of making the shield as far as I know, and it has a certain elegance to it that most other brick-built (and rather blocky, they are) solutions don't have. :thumbup:  It looks sort of like a cyclone is picking up the droideka; (or like it's a part of TCW and some magic pixie dust or something is swirling around it :sick: :tongue: ) not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I think it might convey the illusion of too much movement compared to what the droideka's shields look like for 'real'. Nevertheless, I think it's the best brick-built droideka shield I've seen. It'll probably look better when it's in action, and there are some blaster bolts ricocheting off of it. (with dishes at the impact areas)

Hmm...when I saw it, I thought of a mid action shield. Like, it's starting to appear after being turned on. Whatever it's supposed to be, I can't wait to see this!

That's what I thought. This is a great idea. I'm excited to see more!

It's a small start for the bigger MOC and would be built in modular style similar to the previous one.
