Take a good look at that and tell me it doesn't make Lego's TX-130 look like a behemoth...

Yup, just as I thought. It's spot on, in my opinion.

You should get it before you make an opinion about it. Wink

In the set, the clone can't even look over the gun, it's so huge...

I think the scale is perfect....

I mean two clones can fit in the tank just like in the pic...

I think the "wings" (things that stick out) need to be more stretched out... then it would look better...

It's a little wide if you can see that. The most notable trait though is its height. The TX in the Star Wars universe was MUCH smaller than TLC version. When I get my tank I'll probably have to find away around to mod that...

I still want to see a reference pic.

Besides, why is having something bigger a problem aside from the price?

I just like to make things look as detailed and canon as possible. Smile I don't like it when sets are random and non-canon... I'm a super purist!

Hey, that's what I do too!

Except for the droid BP's... since I don't have much to pit the 95th against except the 2 droid carriers and the HSD!!

I really need the Hailfire droid...

Really? I think he can. And this guy is only a head over the viewport.

No not even close. My biggest badest complaint still is the height of the tank. It's waaaay to high. Have you ever played SWBF or SWBFII?

I think the height is fine... it's just the length of the "prongs" that make it look tall...

Sure have, but remember that Legos are accurately awesome models and dwarfs. Razz

Yup! It's all about the ratio of height to length!

Yep, too high and too wide.

Sialboat's TX-130 is pretty much perfect.

Link? I'm curious to see your idea of perfect and compare it with the Lego model. Wink

Yeah, I thought the prongs were a little short, but other then that it looked fine to me, it looks better in real life then in pics, it's weird... Wink Blue Arc

I nominate this man for MOCer of the month! Very good mods, the old pieces from Obi's EP.II Starfighter on the wings add to it a lot!

Thanks CFaie, but that's actually part of the official set, all my mods are interior only. Razz Blue Arc

Those fools at TLG! When will then find out that too many stickered pieces are bad? A few stickers is good because you can put it on other pieces but too many is horrible! Fordo Yo!

Curse Exo-Force. It makes up probably 40% of my current collection of scrap and they're soo many stickers. Plus as a perfectionist I have to get them just right otherwise they look bad. I must say some of the designs on the stickers have been helpful in mocs though.
