  1. See the rest of the story: Season 1 Season 2 Season 3 Fleshing Out the Problem Bothan Data Hub Parting Ways Surrender Would Have Been An Option To Catch a Thief Imperial Detention Center (OoC: After reading Bloodline I was inspired to build on Ryloth. The book explains that because the Twi'lek's had always been an enslaved species, they only had records in hard copy form. They were never allowed to use data terminals. I've tried to represent that below.) While in his cell on Bothawui, MKJoshA reflected on someone he hadn't thought of in a long time. His dad. He hadn't seen his father since that day he rescued Yeoman and fled Corellia. He had communicated via holonet a few times. Like after his brother, Nathan, died. It was after that point that his parents had to go into hiding. When Nathan was killed, the Empire didn't bother to check on the facts. They just assigned the crime to Josh, a known rebel, and were done with it. That meant they came knocking at Josh's family's home on Corellia. Because Josh had been able to warn his parents, the Stormtroopers found the dwelling abandoned. Josh's father had taken his wife and fled to Ryloth. In addition to running a garage on Corellia, Josh's father had done some odd jobs as a data analyst. This skill allowed him to settle on Ryloth under an assumed name. The Empire was currently occupying the arid planet, but they had their hands full trying to work with the Hutts who still wanted their slaves. This meant deep background checks were often skipped and Josh's father and mother were able to live right under the Empire's noses. Josh's dad spent his working hours shifting through the vast volumes of data the Twi'lek's had stored on scrolls and parchment. The Hutts and Niktos who had enslaved the Twi'lek's on and off for as long as anyone could remember never wanted the Twi'lek's to have access to data terminals or the holonet. Without these tools, the Twi'lek's remained a less educated race and were thus easier to subjugate. After the Clone Wars, some technology found it's way into the hands of enough Twi'lek's that they could at least begin to run their governments with some technological aid. But old habits die hard and most data was still recorded in a tangible way. Josh's father copied the scrolls and parchments when something needed to be send across planet quickly. There, someone else would receive the message and write it down by hand again. It wasn't much of a life, but they were free. And Josh knew that if anywhere would feel like home at this point, it would be where ever his parents were.
  2. Regardless if he or she is ore is not a Star Wars fan, probably everyone has heard of the AT walkers by now. Starting with the AT-AT and the AT-ST, these constructions of terror would create a legacy of vehicles that would come to appear in nearly every corner of the Star Wars story. Eventually, with the debut of Revenge of the Sith, the Republic AT-RT walker was introduced into the Star Wars story. A small, yet maneuverable walker, the AT-RT proved to be a valuable Republic asset throughout the entirety of the Clone Wars. LEGO has made 4 renditions of the walker (5 if you count 30006-1, even though I don't), and some have paid great attention to detail, while others moreso to accuracy in size and shape. Personally, I think that the small version of the walker included in 8098 is the best to date. I set out to improve on that design. This version is based on the standard AT-RT, which first debuted in Revenge of the Sith and subsequently appeared in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars film, in addition to multiple episodes of the animated show. It features everything the walker from the TV series does...an open control seat, a place for the clone trooper's blaster, an adjustable frontal blaster, and adjustable legs. Furthermore, the best part is the model has an improved design and is built to match minifigure scale. This version is based on the 501st Legion AT-RT which first appeared in Season 4 Episode 7 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It features everything the standard walker design does as well, but it reflects the paint swap for the 501st Legion Clone Troopers. I am really impressed with how these designs turned out, and I hope you are too. MOCpages (Standard) MOCpages (501st Variant) Comments welcome. God bless.
