I've been wanting to build something from the Old Republic era for awhile, and the Group Challenge 2 in the group Star Wars LEGO Creations was all the motivation I needed. I built a scene from the Star Wars: The Old Republic trailer Return, where the Sith assualt a Republic space station. A smuggler helps the Republic against Sith Troopers and war droids. Due to the challenges of building with LEGO, I had to take creative liberty with several details. However, I think overall it fits the trailer pretty well.
The smuggler fires at a droideka-like Sith war droid. A Republic trooper assists, and a couple of Sith have already been killed.
A Republic trooper didn't fare as well as his comrade and was killed in an explosion.
A blast door.
The Republic soldiers, also some greebling on the walls.
A red alert light. I just had to use those new round 1x1 tiles!
More greebling. The Alien Conquest ADU guns are quite useful.
A close up of how I did the slant. It's not exactly like in the trailer, but it's the best I could think of.
The war droid. It's far taller than in the trailer, but I'm not a mech builder and wouldn't have been able to get the right shape if it was smaller. Still, it's more menacing now.
The Republic trooper. I really like how his blaster turned out.
Of the three TOR cinematic trailors, "Return" felt the most like the original films. I'm very pleased to see this rendition, with its effective tilework and well-crafted figures. I do wonder though, is it possible to put a pair of dark grey goggles on the top of the smuggler's head to represent the goggles there in the trailor?
I'm still a fan of the old, old 3 movies and not very familiar with the whole Sith thing, but I like what you've done here, especially the effect you achieved with the black grilles on the yellow plates.
Though I am not very familiar with the game, for I have never had a chance to look at it or research, this really is impressive. After watching the trailer you have deffinately captured the moment well.
Amazing build! I love your droideka like thing you build there. I will get this game for sure! The only thing I would change is the troopers. I would take off their helmets ;) Great job! I think I will make one for hope, probably.
