@LorLego, great entry! I love the colors and the bounty hunter, they seem very bold as a bounty hunter would want. They want to be seen and always ready for a fight. The prisoner hold is rather ingenious!

The "Abandon all Hope II" (the AAH I had a severe problem with gravity and the living room floor).

P1050488 von jansued2 auf Flickr

This is Scri Vizla (Callsign "Flashpoint"), proud granddaughter of Shea Vizla - with a long family tradition in bounty hunting. She modified her combat suit with extra long range jetpacks to elimante the need of one of those ugly speeders and some extra FIRE power. Her compagnion is Cian Farmir (Callsign Nightcat), Weapon and interrogation specialist.

Flashpoint and Nightcat are specialized in VIP-Bounty missions - with are normaly highly protected objects.

P1050456 von jansued2 auf Flickr

The AAH II is a modified republican dropship. It was modified to comply with Flashpoints typical attack manouver callad E-Amboss: Attack with a massive EMP, using a Giant ION Cannon and Pulse Rockets to immobilize the enemy and the attack with mass driver weapons. Normally this will shut down the attacking vessel also, but the AAH II could be steered manually to attack in with dogfight tactics.
So the AAH II is heavily, heavily armored with only light shields and a medium agility. Weapon systems include:
- Seperatist ION Cannon
- Mass Driver Cannon
- Main Turbolaser Cannon
- 4 Long-Range Blaster Canons
- 3 Double Blaster Turrets
- 8 Sonic Mines Thrower
- 2 Small Laser for clearing Landing Zones

Other features:
Manouver engines can be extracted to enhance agility
Escape Pod for 2 Passengers
Extractable Docking Tube

P1050516 von jansued2 auf Flickr

The VIP Bounty was thrown into a stasis pod and transported in the cargo bay. It could be lifted to the main deck if Nightcat wanted to give her guest a "special treatment". In case of any trouble, the satis pod can be ejected into space...

More pics here:

The whole thing is build modular and can be "stripped". Unfortenately, no time was left to finalize the private rooms in the stern main deck. This is definitely my biggest MOC so far....

Good luck contestants!

The Sarlacc


"Although The Saralacc might seem old and battered on the outside, she's got more fight in her than the shiniest ship in the spaceport"- Ned Nebulae

The Sarlacc began her life as a Corellian Yt-1300 bulk cruiser, until she fell into the hands of Ned Nebulae in a high-stakes game of Sabac. Nebulae fell in love instantly, and immediately set to work revamping and re-modeling The Sarlacc into what it is today. Nebulae added 3 high military grade turbolasers, in addition to a new hyperdrive, shield system and engine complex.

The most important and notably addition to The Sarlacc was Nebulae's installation of 3 high power tractor beams. The Sarlacc's signature move is to catch a fleeing ship in her tractor beams and move the vessel in front of the ships forward facing weapons. This is what gives her the name Sarlacc, after the infamous Tatooine Sarlacc which stays stationary and drags its prey to it. Over the years, The Sarlacc has gained more and more battle scars, giving her hull a distinctive pattern of patches and pockmarks. Nebulae jokes that for every bounty he claims The Sarlacc gets a fresh coat of Durasteel, which is shurprisingly accurate.

Ned Nebulae


The infamous bounty hunter and pilot of The Sarlacc, Ned Nebulae, grew up on the mean streets of Corellia. He began his career as a bounty hunter after winning his ship The Sarlacc in a high stakes game of Sabac. Shortly after aquiring his beloved ship, Nebulae suffered an accident while chasing a bounty that sliced half of his body off. Rumor has it that he rebuild himself, with the help of his crew mates EV-(2)R5 and Hank Sprocket, using the parts from an IG-100 series droid. Ever since his rebuilding, Nebulae has claimed a shocking 21 bounties, earning him an invite to the Bounty Hunter Guild, which he promptly turned down.

Kaya Nakashima and "Cannonball Run"

Postby mdilthey » Sun Oct 30, 2011 5:59 pm

Kaya Rakashima and Cannonball Run

Cannonball Run by MDilthey, on Flickr

The Cannonball Run is equipped for months in deep space, custom-built after the fall of the second Death Star to hunt, though not necessarily kill, the weakened Imperial Remnant before they could regroup. It has since been retrofitted with weaponry and features a docking bay, crew quarters, portable cells for up to four prisoners, and a fully weaponized speeder.

Kaya Rakashima by MDilthey, on Flickr

Kaya Rakashima is an ex-patriate of the Republic. She gained notariety by tracking Imperial Remnant through deep space, often beyond the outer rim. Her ability as a tracker is so renowned, over half of her contracts are Information Theft exclusively.

Rolf by MDilthey, on Flickr

Rolf, her ex-copilot, has exceptional negotiation skills. There's no telling whether his nose or her instincts makes for the better tracker.

This ship has a full docking bay with a speeder, folding doors, rotating engines, and pivoting cannons. Check out the full set to see the details! ... 891082833/

Good Hunting!

Adrian Sage is a man of many sorrows. He once was a simple man, working for a cargo transportation service, flying and maintaining, a small fleet of C-23 Osprey’s. Adrian had a beautiful wife, a newborn son, and a pet parakeet that talked way too much. His love for them was greater than anything in the universe. One day, war came upon his small corner of the galaxy and ravaged his planet. At the time Adrian was on a small shipping run to a nearby moon, which spared his life. When he returned home he found his town destroyed, his wife and son dead. All he can remember is seeing those black ships lifting off and into the darkness forever. From that cold winters day Adrian outfitted his ship as a fighter, took his sons blanky, and his parakeet as a faithful companion to vow revenge. As a bounty hunter, Adrian scours the galaxy searching, for every last one of those men; he takes any lead, any job, and any bounty that will lead him to his ultimate goal.

Thok Kii and the Wounded Hawk

No one knows if Thok Kii escaped a vicious firefight in the Wounded Hawk, or just found her that way, but he kept it that way...
Image it suits his personality: Meaner...Crazier...Unpredictable:

And anyone he's ever captured has had plenty of time to ponder those similarities in here:

Good luck and good hunting, everyone!

Doctor Vil Helskrem:

He hasn't practiced medicine in years, but he'll write any being with a price on his head a prescription for capture! He also wears two belts, because as someone once said, "You never know."

And you don't want to get caught with your pants down.

The Hopeless Endeavor 49:

The Hopeless Endeavor isn't legally Dr. Helskrem's ship. He stole it. Why? Well, after a string of malpractice lawsuits (the insides of his patients were just to darn interesting to look at), he went bankrupt, both financially and morally. It's well armed, has plenty of room to kick back, and it's fast enough for you.

The Guest Suite:

Dr. Helskrem and his assistant/co-pilot/lover/needle enthusiast, Arina, make sure each guest is comfortable for the duration of the flight to collect on the bounty. During that flight, Dr. Helskrem permits Arina to conduct tests and experiments on their guests. That is as long as, you know, she doesn't kill them.

Presenting Bounty Hunter And'ra Aldebaran, and her ship, "The Rogue Apprentice".

And'ra Aldebaran and her sidekick/partner/twin sister Ard'na Aldebaran work mostly the outer rim territories. Both testing at the near genius level in terms of military strategy, ship design and galactic navigation, they chose bounty hunting after dropping out of the Imperial Academy finding the training "Boring" and "Beneath them."

Their ship, The Rogue Apprentice, was designed, and built entirely by the Aldebaran's. It has 12 forwards turbo lasers, 6 rear facing turbo lasers, and 4 proton torpedo launchers. It has a prisoner compartment in the belly, that can double as cargo storage when bounties are scarce. Right now they are returning a Mon Calamarri banker who ripped off the Hutt Cartel.

Avid Steele

Vet Steele is known, for his egotism and flamboyance. His ship, Avid Steele (named after himself) is the most deluxe vessel available. Modified for his own purposes, it's certainly a formidable craft. Vet Steele is now also for his extravagance, which explains why he only pursues the bounties with the largest reward.

Please see the other photos on Flickr.

I can't believe I finally entered an FBTB contest. There's been so many times I've missed out on these awesome events, that I'd just kill myself if I wouldn't participate in this one. Sadly my heart wasn't in this one like my other creations, even if the prizes were amazing! However I'm entering it anyway, because I really want to be a part of this neat event.

Hi, this is my first post and first last minute try at a MOC contest. Let me introduce my bounty hunter:

The mysterious unnamed Blacktron mercenary and his Space Bike U-R4L

Blacktron Space Bike U-R4L by br.ckfaced, on Flickr

Blacktron Space Bike U-R4L by br.ckfaced, on Flickr

Blacktron Space Bike U-R4L by br.ckfaced, on Flickr

This unnamed Blacktron mercenary (and his sidekick Blobert) collect bounties all over the universe in their Blacktron Space Bike U-R4L. Despite the lack of cockpit, it can travel in a vacuum, as long as the rider has a pressurized space suit on. The mercenary was told Blobert was of an alien race that can breathe in outer space, but he seems to have some kind of problem. So does their bounty, which is haphazardly dragged behind the bike from a chain. The mercenary never really cared about his targets health. Besides he already had a few holes in him due to excessive use of firearms.
