What if 7153: Jango Fett's Slave I was designed similarly as its predecessor, 7144: Slave I?
About this creation
So recently (Last Thanksgiving-ish time, my pastor gave me all of his son's old LEGO collection. I never got around to opening the boxes until January, and to my surprise, a bunch of old, in tact, LEGO Star Wars sets from 1999-2001 were in there. I parted them out since I had a copy already built of all of them, but still, super cool. One of the sets was 7144: Slave I and I got the idea earlier this summer to build 7153: Jango Fett's Slave I as if it was from the same time period, and that meant more time accurate pieces and colors were to be used. I'm only now posting it because I'm stupid and I had a summer Drawing Intensive course I needed to get out of the way so I can take my fall classes.

This is somewhat of a cheat though, I have to admit, and that is because I really just looked at the instructions, and put the pieces in the places they needed to go in different colors. I did make some slight changes, but they are very minor or all interior and do not affect the rest of the exterior. Here is the result.



As you can see, Dark Blue and Sand Green are not present, and the only colors that may not have existed in 2000 are the colors used on Jango Fett, which is something I was never concerned about with the concept, but it does make you wonder if the original color of purple would have been used for his arms and legs instead of violet, and light gray for his helmet and jetpack instead of that pearl silver. Just things to wonder about.

Here are some comparisons to 7144. As you can see, just about everything is exactly the same in build.









Landed.



The opening windscreen.



And now the cargo hold.



In 7144, you can put in Han Solo in Carbonite, and if you are really good (Like myself. (Not to brag, but you guys are dust compared to me. (I'm sorry. (I'm not sorry.)))) you can also get Boba's blaster to fit in the cargo hold as well. Since Han in Carbonite is not in Attack of the Clones, I went with a rack to hold Jango's pistols. The rack has to be placed in very specifically for the door to close. It also needed to be kept from falling back inside of the ship because 7144 is constructed with a gigantic gap in it, and the gunrack would fall in that gap and then you couldn't get it out to give Jango his weapons, and that just is not effective bounty hunting.



It's not overly fantastic, but it looks pretty nice to me.

Thanks for checking this out, don't forget to rate and comment.

I have some ideas to build some newer sets in the style of older Star Wars sets, one in particular is to build the 75013: Umbaran MHC (Mobile Heavy Cannon) as if it was from 1999; done all in old grays and time period accurate pieces. The only exceptions may be minifigures, but I still have to actually build it.

Quoting Cole Edmonson This is a really fun idea; I'm so used to seeing old models rebuilt with new parts/techniques ("neoclassic"), but using older methods to simulate newer stuff is an interesting idea. Are you planning on doing any other models like this?
I've always found something pleasing about how things are not so streamlined. I like all those edges. At the moment, an Umbaran MHC from The Clone Wars is in the works.

Quoting Mister Lego ~ Awesome job, true to the time period. Would've been cool if they had both of these come in a "pack".
I'm surprised that there wasn't a re-release of Jango's Slave I in 2013. But there has never been an instance where both versions of the Slave I were ever out at the same time. That would have been a cool pairing though.

Quoting Clear Brick If this is what Lego sets looked back then.. let me just say I'm glad to have been born when I was.
You are a disgrace then. I'm glad that you like the MOC, but you are dead to me. (=_= )

Quoting Stephan Niehoff Absolutely clearly time accordingly. When I look at this Moc, I feel back to the time in the I built exactly in this way. Just great
Thanks. I've always found the older sets to feel more like LEGO sets. I enjoy the blocky nature of them since they were constructed of blocks.
Quoting Zach Lucia Dang I loved that set, I need to try this. Great job! ~Zach
I have yet to do so, but I'm hoping to do it soon. I've made a podracer recently and had it not been for some few key components being from more recent years, it fits in well with the other 1999 and 2001 podracers. Thanks.
Quoting The Evstar One thing about the Slave 1 that always amused me is that if you take off the side wings, I think it kinda looks like an iron!
It's how Boba keeps his cape from wrinkling. :)
