Battle of Boz Pity-Pt1 w/ Correct Modification Anakin Delta7

Post by Sandtrooper Platoon on Mon Jan 28, 2008 1:35 pm

The Battle of Boz Pity was a battle that occurred only months after the Battle of Genosis. Firstly, in the orbit above the planet Boz Pity, and then later, the planet itself become a war zone.

While Acclimator Class Star Destroyers, (AKA Republic Assault Ships) were on there way to protect Boz Pity after a request from their senator, they encountered a small number of Trade Federation Core Ships deploying C-9979 Landing Craft to the planets surface. Separatist intelligence had got it wrong and they thought Boz Pity would be relatively undefended, thus sending a small strike force not equipped to handle the superior and numerous Republic forces they met.

The Republic Assault Ships quickly scrambled generic Clone Starfighters, V-19 Torrents and leading them into battle where two Jedi, sent to command the Repubilc forces; General Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker in their Delta 7 Jedi Starfighters.

A number of the Trade Federation Landing Ships were destroyed. The Assault Ships outnumbered the Core Ships and eventually won the battle above the planet. However, a large number Landing Craft managed to deploy hundreds of MTTs, Hailfire Droids and Tank Droids. After the Republic won the battle in the skies, the battle continued on the planet below (pics to come).

This is a modified version and what I feel it should look like. Rather than the abomination they have now.

Please note, the droid is an R2 unit, but not R2-D2. As the droids used in Delta 7's are integrated Astromech Droids.

Only had to use a couple of pieces to cover the gaping hole where R2-D2 sat.

I took out all the Lego in the undercarriage, making it more stable. Also placed two circular 2X2 pieces in the cockpit to raise Anakin's height in the cockpit.

Here is a comparison.

The figure used in the improved version is an Episode III Anakin taken from the Eta-2 set. I am not a fan of the "cartoony" look of the new figure. Apart from Flesh/Yellow differences, I feel they look great next to each other.

I like the way this is starting out. I'll put some stuff like this up soon too.

The starfighters look similar, but the differences are still there. Good work!

Thanks CC007. Reading about a "Battle Story" is half the fun of viewing a diorama. I like to build up my creations. Laughing No pun intended.

I think that this should have been the evolution of Anakin's SF. TLC model. The whole idea of having R2-D2 in front of the cockpit obscuring Anakin's vision is both ridiculous and lame. Roll Eyes

I'm not a fan of the whole 'cartoonified' series. I mean, basing it off of a cartoon is fine, but don't cartoonify the figures, lego. Roll Eyes

As I said in another thread only Obi's Delta-7 had the droid integrated. Roll Eyes All other Delta-7s had the droid in front of the cockpit because this is the only part of the ship thick enough to house a complete droid. In Episode III Plo Koon is flying a standard Delta-7 with the droid in front, Anakin never flew a ship with a hardwired droid. Finally, Arc-170's weren't deployed until well over a year after Geonosis, they were first deployed along with the Phase-II armor.

I like the new Anakin. I mean look at the flesh toned figures. Everyone hated them at first, they threatened to boycott lego or whatever, and look: Most people actually like the new fleshie figures.

Hey astoriabluelegos, thanks for the info about the ARC-170. But I take Star Wars fairly seriously too, according to the Star Wars "Complete Cross Sections" book, StarWars.com, Wookiepedia and "Star Wars Chronicles - The prequels", the standard customized Jedi Delta 7's always had droid navigators.

Here are some quotes from "Complete Cross Sections"
"The truncated customized Jedi version features a socket for a truncated droid navigator"
"R4 was the prototype for other integrated droid navigators in Jedi Delta 7 ships"
"Jedi Starfighter - Crew: 1 pilot and 1 modified, integrated astromech droid"

Here is more info: http://www.starwars.com/databank/starship/delta7/index.html
And more: http://www.starwars.com/databank/starship/delta7/?id=eu
Take a look at the pics at the bottom: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Delta-7_Aethersprite-class_light_interceptor

All of the standard customized Delta-7's had the truncated droid. It appears that only Anakin modified the Delta-7 to carry R2-D2 in the Azure Angel and Azure Angel II. If Lego wanted to bring out the Azure Angel, then cool have the droid in the front. But not on a standard Delta-7. And the yellow colouring of Anakin's fighter leads me to deduce that his fighter would be a standard customised Delta-7.

Here is something from the "Star Wars Chronicles - The prequels"
Quote: The Jedi kept a number of customized Delta-7 Jedi Starfighters in the Jedi Temple.

Therefore, a yellow standard customized version of the Delta-7 would have a truncated droid. As do, Plo-koon, Seasee Tin and the Kit Fisto Jedi Starfighter.

And finally, in Episode III (the movie can't be wrong) when you watch Plo-koon flying his Delta7 in the Order 66 chapter, (if you pause when Sidious appears in the ARC-170) their is a blue and silver droid just off to the side. Which would most possibly be a R2 series model.

May the force be with you.

Okay, you are right and I am wrong, partially. First off Anakin's Yellow starfighter is costom which he flew with R2-D2, therefore he probably costum built the hold for R2. Standard versions DO have the droid off to the side, and not only that I was wrong TWICE! The other thing I was wrong about is I stated that "The ships are not thick enough for a droid here" I was wrong there too. Obi's droid obviosly was hardwired and early models were too. But in Plo Koon's bio on Wookiepedia it says that during his order 66 crash his droid was EJECTED! And if you click the link apparently it was a complete droid. if you look at the ship the engine "pods" do extend far enough forward to house a complete droid, because of this the droid would have to drop through the bottom of the ship, like a Naboo Starfighter. So some had them hardwired others had em' complete. Personally I like the R2 units complete. Wink Thanks for pointing out my errors! Smile Blue Arc

Hey ABL,

About Plo-koon's droid ejecting. Yes, the Wookiepedia isn't always right. Anyone can change the info as they please.

TLC has got it totally wrong. If R2 was to eject, he would eject up. R2-D2 would have to get in from the top because the main reactor bulb (among other things) is housed beneath the ship. That is why Anakin raised the height of the canopy.

However, all the books I own (Lucas Books) and StarWars.com appear to say that the droids are truncated. And grab your copy of Episode III when you get the chance. You can clearly see an R2 droid off to the side on Plo-koon's Delta7.

IMHO, I feel that at first, Anakin would have flown without R2-D2. Found that the droids he flew with weren't what he expected and then modified a Delta-7, painted it Azure and named it the Azure angel and brought R2-D2 along for the ride.

This is one of the reasons I dislike EU. The movies and all the books say one thing and then you get a cartoon or comic book that tells you something else. For mine, the Yellow Delta-7 has an R2 unit off to the side.

We could always ask George if we had his email address, but I'm sure he would probably right back and tell us both to "Get a life." Laughing

Yes Plo Koon's Droid is off to the side in the wing and may be complete, as for the reactor bulb you are correct it could potentially get in the way, but not on Koon's or standard Delta's since his droid is in the wing. It would only affect the Center-seated droids, in which case the reactor would probably be moved forward. On Anakins other ships (Azure 1&2) the droid is in the middle, so why would this ship be any different. :| When the Clone Wars animations comes out I'll bet it'll prove me right on this one. And I admit MOST standard Delta-7s had a trunkated droid in he wing, but there is, as always, a possability of varients with other setups. Wink Smile Blue Arc

I believe it would be easier for R2-D2 to get onboard like he does in an X-wing or Y-wing. According to the schematics of the Delta7, there is a awful lot of machinery beneath where R2-D2 would sit in the Azure Angel.
And besides, I don't hold much respect for the cartoon. No disrespect to the cartoon itself. It gave us the V-19 Torrent (which is about one of the only EU machines I accept as being part of the SW universe, that and the TX series). I'm afraid if it isn't in the movies, it takes a lot for me to accept.

So much is added on that makes a mockery of what was written before. It is a subject that bugs me much with the SW universe. It is simply a money making exercise having the cartoons and video games. If it isn't in the movies or in an official Lucasfilm book that is about the movies, I take these new characters and machines with a grain of salt.

I have come a long way from disliking EU to accepting some of it's tenants. However, I believe they should cease bringing out new data that supersedes the old data. It should be up to the imagination of the fans to create new and exciting vehicles, jedi and commanders.

I would like to see at least one episode of the cartoon with Delta-7s and Delta-7Bs flying together. As far as I can tell, the B model was meant to supercede the orignial but combat losses mean that some of the originals (like Plo Koon's) are still in service at the time of Order 66. (In universe, not in the real world.)
