“It’s a good bet the Empire knows we’re here”

Imperial Probe Droid by Sean W

I thought that this was a very fitting MOC for my first blog as it originates from my favourite Star Wars film, The Empire Strikes Back. A Viper Imperial Probe Droid is sent to the remote ice planet of Hoth to search for the rebels during the opening scenes of the film.  It quickly locates Echo base, and is able send a report back to its masters before it’s intercepted by Han & Chewbacca.

This is one of the nicer MOC versions of this droid that I’ve seen, and is instantly recognisable.  It’s been constructed by mocpages.com builder Sean W, who is just getting back into LEGO.  I especially like the head section which has lots of accurate details, including the sensor arrays and antenna, and also the design of the arms which are suitably menacing!
