Clone Wars Felucia

Post by legorevolution on Wed Oct 08, 2008 5:37 am

Towards the final stages of the Clone Wars the CIS and allies took to the fungal planet of Felucia. Dense, spore-like, and spongy fungal plants enveloped the entire planet making navigation, fighting, and even surviving a difficult task for Republic Forces. A special legion of Clones fought for the planet wearing custom armor allowing them to blend in and survive the hazardous environment. Larger vehicles such as AT-APs and AT-TEs were difficult to maneuver on the dense planet, and the smaller AT-RT proved to have insignificant armor. A prototype walker known as the AT-ST was produced specifically to deal with this environment. It was such a great design that in the later years of The Empire it was modified and mass produced.

The troopers and the AT-ST make their way through a small opening within the immense over-growth of plants.


As seen here, the front leg is bend a little. For the size of this walker I tried to achieve a few things 1. detail and greebles (which you'll see later) 2. color in relation to the environment 3. extreme flexibility/pose ability.


Ground facing upwards shot. Here I tried to simulate a shot seen on Felucia in Episode III.


A shot from the side to show dimensions. The walker has plant fungal growth on it for camoflauge because enemies and other biological life-forms tend to attack it.


Opposite side-shot. I really enjoyed making this orange petaled flower in this moc. Its size was amazing and I finally found a use for those darn orange pieces from that Exo-Force set.


Back-shot: I also really liked the back of the walker and these two studless pieces from Anakin's Delta really helped give it some texture.


Top side shot.


Complete top shot.


Back leg shot. I thought the troopers looked cool from this angle plus you can see how I made the legs flexible. Credit goes to TheJinjaNinja here as I first saw this technique in his walker. Kudos!


The next few shots of the troopers looked pretty cool, plus I kind of wanted to give you an idea of the environment without the towering walker.






Top shot.


In these pictures I removed the troopers to show you the true extent of detail in the environment.


Here I got the idea of this spore-like plant and smaller surrounding ones from The Force Unleashed. TFU levels of Felucia were too dark and non-vibrant for my liking as I enjoy the Felucia we see in Episode III, but the spores in those levels can do some serious damage if stepped on.


The designs I came up with for some of the plants were very simple yet effective. It was a pain putting all those pieces into the slopes up the side of the green 'wash' seen running down the middle.


Top shot of the plant/fungal life. The purple plant I made looks like it's from Jamanji or a starfish Razz


Just an example of the flexibility of the legs, they can extend much further than seen, and also in the 'hip' region it can be jutted up or down to change the plain of elevation.


The feet of the walker had to be made to accommodate the environment. A spongy and wet surface that changes plains easily had to have flexible feet. They outer toes of the 3 platforms on each foot can extend downwards and upwards to stabilize the walker. In this front shot they are shown as folded completely up.


Side shot.


Opposite side shot. The plant growth has engulfed the Republic Symbol on the side of the walker.


Knee/leg/hinge area. Credits go to TheJinjaNinja once again.


Front shot of the cockpit- you can catch a glimpse of the pilot inside.


Weaponry- Twin blaster cannons are located underneath the bottom of the cockpit. These can rotate upwards and downwards I think around 130 degrees...


Laser guided reciprocating blasters mounted on the side.


Grenade/rocket launcher mounted on the other side.


Side shot with greebles. I was please with the greebles on this walker and thought they played in well with the design. The two yellow plates of armor that the Republic Symbol is on top of are tilted inwards and I thought it made the walker look really cool. Most of the angles around the head I made to look cool and was very pleased with.


Top side shot. Those exo-force splatter yellow pieces were a good investment in! It made this walker look more like a clone's helmet 'fin.'


Front shot.


Back shot with the greebles. I am proud of the texture and angles back here! I thought the flow was really profound.


You're probably thinking how do you get the clone in there... well the back hatch folds down and up! The size of the cockpit and angles made it very difficult to design this. The walker itself is very flimsy because of this to be honest but I spent a lot of time just into this section. Probably 2 or so hours to be honest. The original entry point was going to be a top hatch but I didn't want to make this walker too similar to an Imperial AT-ST.


The pilot fits in quite snugly!


Build Time: 7 hours 52 minutes 3 seconds
Mess Made In Room: Giant
Biggest pain in the @$$... The 'wash' area!
Was this supposed to be Legorevo's entry to the Small Walkers Contest? You betcha.
Did I finish it and post it kind of to throw it in your faces? Maybe Wink

Excellent work once again! On the side with the fungal growth of the walker, is that an icepick? Works very well as a greeble. Nice plants on the base- colourful and as organic as Lego can get. The holes in the sides of the baseplate - is it modular? Willl you be making an extension of it?

Post by Starkiller on Wed Oct 08, 2008 5:56 am

this moc is insanely colorful and detailed an i love it. It is probably the best moc you have ever made... maybe. It reminds me of this one time my dad took me camping and there was this huge bug on a colorful leaf, and right as i was about to smoosh it my dad told me not to because it is a living thing and has the right to live. Laughing.
p.s. i love not being able say Laughing without it becoming an emoticons Yellow

This is awesome!!! It really looks like Felucia! The landscape is perfect, from it's bright, tall plants to the positioning of the clones.

The walker is OK, I think it is too organic for the Republic though....

Not colourful enough with huge towering flowers. Legorev's knocks the socks off both.

This is very nice, excellent landscaping and brillinat work on the walker. However, the walker loooks clunky around the knees when walking, maybe revers the joints...

I agree with J4ke

Post by Starkiller on Wed Oct 08, 2008 6:29 pm

i couldn't think of what made it look awkward compare to the real at-st, but it is that the joints are going the opposite direction. Either way it is a sick walker.

Yes I admit to rushing the legs a little. I was trying to come up with an appropriate design that would match the side of the feet and not be too skinny. Good suggestion.

Thanks for all the comments guys! I was hoping you'd enjoy a Felucia moc! Warning: It's a pretty big pain in the butt to be honest because there's so much detail on the planet, but if you're up for a good challenge... I'd like to see someone try it!

Axel- Yep I liked the icepick myself. The whole cockpit of the walker looks pretty cool in real life and unfortunately wasn't able to capture it that well with my camera :/ The technic baseplates are the only ones I have right now so I've been using them for pretty much all my mocs. They're sturdy and can be used to attach other modules. I don't think I'll be expanding on this Felucia for now, but I'll definitely touch upon a bigger moc when I get more pieces. (Likely to be with an AT-TE and Aayla Secura Order 66 Wink )

I forgot who said this but I believe it was Thunder-Blade: The walker wasn't organic at all, but if you were referring to it having too many fungal plant growths on it I think I would disagree. If a walker was to be stations on Felucia for several months all humidity, spores, and erosion would cause the walker to teem with fungal life. I specifically stated that the Clones chose not to 'clean' the walker of these organic growths specifically because it offered great camo.

Thanks for all the comments so far guys!
