Okay, so no go on another one, how's about trading it out? I mean, can you delete my old one, because I really like the new one better.

Chibi Eta-2 Actis Jedi Starfighter. I'm so glad the rules didn't require the full astromech to fit in the wing, because that would have been next to impossible. :lol:

I had a great time building this. Thanks for another great contest.
Brickshelf Folder for those interested.

Lots of great entries so far, but I thought I'd toss my hat in the ring anyway. Here's my entry, Luke's Landspeeder.

Image

Not much more too it than that, but you can see a couple other views (along with another WIP) in my Flickr set.

EDIT: After seeing an X-wing, Y-wing, and several A-wings, I had hoped to add a B-wing to the lot, but it doesn't seem to lend itself as well to the chibi treatment. Maybe someone else will be more creative than I am!

Right, here's my entry. EU, but since LEGO produced an official set of it a few years back, we're all good. This was very fun to make, keeping such an unusual design distinguishable while squashing it as much as possible, and leaving room for a fig.

More pics, albiet poorer quality.

My submission breaks at least one rule blatantly and a few more depending on interpretation, but I so rarely MOC and mod that I wanted to share this anyways. (In other words, I'm not counting on this being a legitimate submission for the contest.) So, without further ado, I give you...

Well this has been a fun and inspiring topic for me to follow with particular
inspiration being drawn from ted @ndes A-Wing , Legomancers Y-Wing
and of course both the Moodswim and MacLane AT AT will influence
future builds.
Unfortunately my lego collection is packed away in its many boxes awaiting
a drawer solution to be afforded so I can set it out again. But after seeing the daylies
here on FBTB I had to build something.
My best chance was to hope that a singular colour scheme would enable me to create
something without having to unpack the walk-ins entire contents.
So we have my Third take on a Twin pod .
As my first Flickr heckle suggests you could really consider this to scale but its super deformed
none the less because of it. I think I'll shorten the nose tomorrow and see how it goes but my
entry remains as is.
So we have....

Hope to see some more entries over the next couple of days.

Couldn't resist this contest, so I present the N1 Starfighter. It was quite a challenge to make one so small and still make it look a bit accurate, enjoyed every single moment of it though. Didn't have a whole lot of pieces so I kind of scavenged parts from every single yellow vehicle of my SW collection.

Without further ado, the N1 Starfighter
Image
Made the engines slightly bigger, cause I also associate Chibi with strange proportions (both large and small) and it looked so much better like this.

Image
As you can see it's a tight fit, The control console has to be taken out if you want to remove the pilot, R2 fits snuggly in the back and the sides can be slightly rotated to remove him.

Wish every contestant best of luck in the contest.

This is my Chibi version of the Rogue Shadow!

I modeled this ship largely from the real Lego set which I also own. The special thing about this is that the wings really fold up and down; just like in the Lego set. You can see a video here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/buzzdroid/5399544647/

Here is where the pilot sits. You can see more pictures of the model here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/buzzdroid/sets/72157625935380366/

Thanks for looking, and good luck to all the other contestants!
If at first you don't succeed, so much for skydiving.
