My model of Han Solo's blaster using the pieces from the Rogue Shadow lego set.
About this creation
For the set alternative category, I used the Rogue Shadow Lego set. I used it because it is easy to put back together, but has more pieces than a battlepack, like Kaleta suggested. With it, I made Han Solo's blaster from the Star Wars Original Trilogy
Here is the picture from the box of the original lego set.
The other side of the blaster, for proof that I did not make half.
The front, held up since it is a really weird angle. Please excuse my hand.
The back and handle of the blaster.
The top, showing the scope.

My sister, whose camera i used, joined me for this pic. We are evil scoundrels, aren't we? i really wanted to have her hold a toy lightsaber, but I could not find one.
Yes, I realize that the pieces are not perfectly laid out, but with this set, that would have taken a while. I got Dr.Lee to okay this. I did not use all of the pieces. These are about 3/4 of all the pieces.
Here is the comment in the more questions thread:
Quoting Commander Calle (a.k.a. Tyler Halliwell) .
For the set alternative, I used a big set and so is it okay that the pieces are not as much spread out as they are in color-coded piles? I can include the parts list from the instructions booklet as well, I just do not want to take the creation apart now that it is together. Please respond quickly.
That is fine, just link back to this so the judges know I gave the go ahead. However, do make sure they are at least spread out, and not just piled up.

Final Note: I really enjoyed this. I originally was going to make a sword but decided I needed to make something more complex for the end of this contest. Enjoy!
Golden entry. Though still you couldn't free yourself from the original set's theme, you built something completely different and you did it well. 5 points (the last of which you owe in part to your funny sis).
