Astromech Workplace Contest: Targonnian Pursuit
Posted 27 July 2012 - 11:54 AM
My entry to the Eurobricks Astromech workplace contest has R2-D2 and anotherastromech working in law enforcement.
This scene is based off part of the Star Wars: Droids Season of Revolt comic,in which R2, under the control of the 'caretaker virus' forces Threepio tohotwire a police speeder with sidecar from under the police officer's nose. TheTargonnian dictator Craw sends his captain, Steggus to capture 'Smiley', ahuman under the effects of Savorium (A herb developed by Ithorian MasterZorneth, which if eaten makes the consumer permenently cheerful and susceptible)with an unnamed three legged battle vehicle.
Anyway, on to the model.
To begin with, an overview of the MOC.
Details of the Police Speeder (Notice Artoo is missing his legs here, I wanted it to look more ‘snug’.) This thing is fragile! I reworkedthe design many times to get it to look like the comic reference images.
Now for the three-legged battle vehicle. I’ll give it a SWsounding name, and baptise it the T-LBV. This design practically built itself,with the obvious cockpit part combinations. I promise to you that this flextubing is NOT cut! I've used just a little artistic licence here but otherwise the design is the same. If it looks weird it's not my fault, it's the artist who drew it!
Finally, a look at the other part of the model. We have a police officer, his astromech, Smiley and Zorneth.
The characters involved in this MOC;
P.S. I don't own any of the comic images in this entry, they are copyright of some company.
Wish me luck in the competition!
