A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all on MOCpages!
About this creation
With increasingly thorough satellite coverage of the North Pole, Santa has had no option but to move his entire operation further afield - to the asteroid belt.
Since even red-nosed reindeer have trouble navigating sleighs through the vacuum of space a new gift delivery vehicle was required. Happily, a popular sci-fi franchise provided inspiration for Santa's elves...
The TIE-RDLF (Rapid Delivery Light Freighter) is fast, maneuvrable and able to carry an ample supply of gifts. But even so, the rising world population means that Santa can no longer complete his work single-handed.
Instead, on Christmas Eve Santa's mothership, the Super Star Toy Deployer, arrives in high Earth orbit and legions of Santa Clones take to the skies in their TIE-RDLFs, or 'Rudolfs'. What a good thing they know where you live, eh?
The Rudolfs even fold neatly for storage for the rest of the year.
Thanks for reading, this is obviously a (fairly substantial) adaptation of this set. I hope that Christmas brought you as much Lego as you'd hoped for, and wish you every blessing in 2016!
Very nice story , Stuart! Of course a big like to this X-masly fitted starcraft from a famous movie... LOL I've planed a similar MOC, but not with an x-fighter, but I missed this special cap... ;) So maybe next year! Have a good and healthy 2016!
I like it
