[MOC] 8 Alt builds from Ahsoka Tano's T6 (75362) - and counting

Recommended Posts

Hey all, as for most of the people around social media, i thought that the new Ahsoka t6 was a bit of a letdown, amazing pieces, nice source for the model, yet the size and overall features felt kinda meh...

That set became the only "bigger" official set so far that i have, but don't rellay want to display at all, so i started creating my first ever alternative build last november, and now i have 7 alts done, 6 of it was already released on Rebrickable - Instructions more pictures, and some more of my designs are available on my RB: https://rebrickable.com/users/zsoltom/mocs/

For my first ever alt, i just wanted to have a republic ship (due to the bricks colors in the box), my choice for the first experiment became the Acclamator as a display set with stand, this one started the madness that came afterwards: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-165540/zsoltom/acclamator-class-clone-assault-ship-alternative-from-ahsoka-t6-jedi-shuttle-75362/#details

 

 

I got brave after the acclamator (i think it turned out unexpectedly well for my first alt), so i wanted to do something irrational. I'm in love with the ISD since i first saw New Hope (~30 years ago), so my second alt choice was an ISD. The bridge turned out very well, but the rest of the body is pretty forced, tho it was possible to create something that resembles the ISD, so i kinda feel good about this experiment: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-168514/zsoltom/republic-star-destroyer-imperator-class-alternative-from-ahsoka-t6-jedi-shuttle-75362/#details

After 2 alts without using the windshield, i wanted to do a minifig scale playset next. The cockpit of the T6 could be easily transformed into a Tie Phantom, have enaugh parts in the box for 3 wings, so as my 3rd alt, i started working on the Phantom. When the body was ready - cockpit-body and the 2 horizontal wings - i saw a tie striker almost completely done, so i finished that first - made the wings bigger from the 3rd wings parts, and smoothed out the back of the body. After this, it was just an hour to make the pahntom's smaller wings and build the 3rd. That's what i call effective design 2 for 1!

The 5th alt became the best i have ever came up or dreamt of to achieve with LEGO, ever in my life especially as an alt build from 75362. I achieved a fully playable and displayable minifigscale B-Wing playset! I'm in love with this ship, cockpit rotates 360°, wings have 1-1 stud to connect while landed, studshooters. Still can't belive i made this.

My 6th Alt was finished saturday, released the instructions yesterday, Ahsoka Tano's Starfortress / Resistance Bomber playset - can stand on its own, have playfeatures and also minifig scale:

The 7th alt was done in tandem with the starfortress: the Millenium Falcon (i got a very cheap 2nd set without figs to display my B-wing, but for now i'm doing the alts in pairs :D)! I already started working on it in december and early january but couldn't come up with an acceptable body so cancelled it twice, but after working on a Hammerhead cruiser (it wont be possible to make, at least for me) i came up with a nice shape for the Falcon's body, and aftert a weeks hard job, it is done! Instructions coming this week! 

Update, its released: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-173971/zsoltom/ahsoka-tanos-falcon-75362-alternative/#details

What a creative idea! I just took apart my copy of this set last week after getting tired of looking at it—I wish I'd thought to do something like this instead! There are so many nice parts in this set. My favorite of these rebuilds is the resistance bomber. Good job :classic: forcing yourself to be creative with a limited number of parts is the bread and butter of this hobby!

Those are fine alt builds. I love the B-wing, the Resistance Bomber, and the Millennium Falcon. There's also a really good Fang Fighter alt build for this set, have you seen it?

With all the alt builds I've seen from the T6, this surely has to be one of the most versatile sets out there! Your falcon is very cute.

In the meantime my 8th alt from 75362 - Ahsoka Tano's ARC 170 playset got done - theres a gunner turret at the back for Professor Huyeng, the 4 wings can switch to attack position, and there's a little stand too.
