That's no moon... it's a VW Camper Van!...er, Space Station...

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of Hippie Minifigures suddenly cried out in terror...

I thought this sounded like a bit of fun so spent the afternoon building an entry (with hubby trying to help from the sidelines)

I don't usually build outside of the plans so this was something new for me and it was fun. Thanks for the contest to get me out of my comfort zone.

I'm really excited for this contest! I've finally completed a project (albeit a mini one).

I present my entry Van Solo, frozen in car-bonite. Turns out Jabba had his eyes on the shop at home exclusive too...

Here is my version of the Twin-Pod Cloud Van. It's based on set 7119 (one of my favorite sets) and uses only the pieces that come with that set.

Very impressive. Lucky for you that set had 4 of the VW windshield pieces. ;) Anything left for the pop top or did this use them all up?

There were some pieces left, but I would have had to overload the design to fit them all in.

That's really cool that you built that with just the parts in one relatively small set. Good work.

This is a campier attempt to Star Warsify the mini VW van model,

Where are those transmissions you intercepted? What have you done with those vans? by SPARKART!, on Flickr.

When I was playing with this, rolling it along the table and floor, I couldn't help but think it was more Zardoz-y than Star Wars-y. Never seen Zardoz? It features a huge flying head. And Sean Connery...or is that Christopher Lee? In LEGO, they look the same.

You need to delete this post and edit your prior one. Otherwise you'll be disqualified for technically having 2 entries.

I don't think we've got it set up where you can actually delete posts unless it's the last reply in the thread, so I took care of it. But yeah. For anyone else that wants to submit better photos after they already posted their model: please just edit your original post. Carry on.
