Hi

With the new Jabba's palace set to come I wanted to have a new Rebo Band to put in, but my previous version from 2003 was a bit... outdated.
So I build a new one and here it is.

Posted Image

and the old one for comparison

Nice improvement, did you design them smaller so they'd specifically fit in the new palace, or is that just how it happened?

They are about the same size excepted for Rebo and his piano that are a bit smaller. As I don't have the palace yet...  :cry_sad: ... I don't know if they will fit. But anyway when I see the size of the building I'm a bit doubtful...

Nice build!  I love the detail work on Max Rebo's organ.

Amazing! Sy Snootles looks remarkably like her movie counterpart, and the Rebo band is great, too! Nice job!

I've done a lot of Mafia games over the years. Somehow, I haven't improved at all.

Scott. Great Scott, if you will.

I'm glad to see Max Rebo, Sy Snootles and Droopy McCool in Lego form, but I hope to sometime see a Lego Rappertunie (The flute player in Max Rebo). Great job, by the way.

Impressive to see how good it looked almost ten years ago and then to see you top that. Well done.

I think the old version of Sy Snootles looks better :sadnew:, just needs some new tan. The others are much better though :sweet:.

Hmm, this is a little bit like art imitating life.

With new CGI technology GL was able to 'improve' on the original by adding a ridiculous song and dance routine :sadnew:

With new brick availability and part usage you have managed to 'improve' on your original versions.

The difference being that your improvements actually work :thumbup: (although I do like your originals too).

Perfect! :thumbup: Rebo's organ looks really cool, and all of them have great sculpting.

Interesting idea, it may be the only character form the revised version I do enjoy.

Thanks. The old band still going strong despite its age.

In fact the new Sy isn't as chubby as it looks but the legs are less thins as the parts I used for the yellow version don't exist in Tan (excepted for one shop on Bricklink)!

Amen brother!  :laugh:
Yes I hate Lucasfilm for having changed the song. "Lapti nek" for ever... whatever it means... wait a minute wiki says it means : "Work it out", sounds like an hymn for us.

And was finally easier to make than I first thought. For the piano keys I was searching my drawer looking for a tube to use with some 1x1 plate with hook or some other part like that, when I saw the silver ribbed hose... then a light buld suddenly lit over my head and I thought : "Yes, it's nice, simple and easy, let's try"! And it worked fine which is a good thing because as I always says, I'm a lazy guy  :wink:

Ew. Don't mention "Jedi Rocks."  :sick:

"Lapti Nek" was/is still much better than that crap song.  :grin:

Compared to your ten Y-O one, this one is much better than the last.

Hmm...I'm a little partial to the old Sy Snootles now that I see the comparison. Maybe a combination of the two is in order. Regardless, this is a top notch rendition of the Max Rebo Band! Always love your work.
