An interesting model by Boba-1980, but one that is rather fun and creative. The builder recreated the Battle of Crait, something we have probably seen plenty of times by now (and it hasn't even been a year yet!), but Boba-1980 make it in microfighter form. A condensed command shuttle, a smaller version of the base's turrets, and even a tiny First Order battering ram. What does that all create when combined? A fun model that I'm sure many kids could enjoy playing with.
Boba-1980 really impressed me with this awesome piece! Here we are witnesses to a brutal battle in Jedha City between our underdog heroes and some well-designed microfighters! The iconic Jedha city appearance is getting easier to instantly recognize, instead of it simply being labelled "a Star Wars city..." However, it does look like the inhabitants might be thinking about moving. . . Visit Boba on his Flikr page and show this build some love!
These are awesome!
I'm totally excited by Rogue One (as if you didn't know that) I even shot a trailer reaction video yesterday. I'm also a huge fan of Microfighters, so to see these SWRO chibi style fighters on a diorama gives me great joy. There's rebel troops attacking, imperials counterattacking, two AT-AT's, one U-Wing, one TIE Striker, a bunker and I presume a shield generator (it's always a shield generator) all on a 48x48 base. Nice work Boba-1980!
I've always been a fan of the Microfighter series (well, the latest wave was a bit lukewarm) and their chunky, chibi style. This EF76 Nebulon-B Escort Frigate (AKA Medical Frigate) by builder markus19840420 captures the feel of the series perfectly, and then some. This makes me want to build my own rebel fleet!
The first episode to be shot in BrickNerd Studios, the new home of BrickNerd. Featuring the first wave of Mixels and all six Star Wars Microfighters.
