"When we arrived on Kashyyyk, things were just as bad as we'd feared. The droids had us outgunned, outmanevered and outmanned by a 5 to 1 margin. What none of us had counted on was the Wookiees. We'd all heard the stories of course, but we'd never fought next to them, never seen them rip apart a droid with their bare hands. They were magnificent. Even so, it was still a suicide mission. At least it was until Master Yoda arrived. Then it became a battle. A winnable battle."

About this creation
The Battle of Kashyyyk was one of the many battles that took place during the Outer Rim Sieges and among the final conflicts of the Clone Wars. It was fought on the planet Kashyyyk, the homeworld of the Wookiees and a vital Republic member world, which was being overrun by the Confederacy of Independent Systems which desired secret hyperspace routes in Wookiee archives that could turn the war in its favor. There's a bit of Wookiepedia for ya!
I'm sure of you know that, everybody who is anybody that likes Star Wars, has to do a Kashyyyk at some stage in their Lego building life. I'm no exception! Unfortunately for me, I have next to no tan pieces and even less blue pieces making the beachhead a bit odd, But I used whatever I could. The AT-AP is a wonderful inclusion and adds the "Kashyykness" to it because we all know that they participated in the battle. Also the AT-AP is better than TLG shotty set and bigger, however the Third leg could be a bit better I admit. Lots of mayhem going on-you work it out!
-Well there you have it, My biggest Moc to date!
-Expect the speeder and AT-AP posted as there own Mocs
-On August 17th it is MY BIRTHDAY!!!! I plan to get a 360, but if I don't, what Lego Sets would YOU recommend?
-The BARC Speeder design is somewhat based on Robo Man's so credit to him!
-Leave a comment telling me what you think!
That is great work- i like the fact that this isn't too big but full of awesomeness- At-Ap is little better than the official and action is great- i like the rocketeffect and the terrain and idea of sbd:s walking from the water to the shore is spectacular- good job!
