Episode 632

Read the comic here.

Sorry for the delay. Monday's strip will be up this afternoon.

Yes, that's another new (huge!) set and a brand new shuttle craft. For those of you who would like a better view of them, I've put up a page with a few larger views here.

VERY nice shuttle! I'm assuming the side pods are for "passengers" and not as a floatation device in the unlikely event of a water landing?

@servo:

Yeah, the pods are prisoner transports. We may even see them in action at some point...

I'm debating whether to christen her the "Baggins" or the "Wee Willy"

I really love the mix of Slave-1 and hobbit architecture with the shuttle. How long did the set take to construct, if I may ask?

The shuttle reminds me of a LEGO submarine I had as a kid, found it on Bricklink, set 6441 Deep Reef Refuge, http://www.bricklink.com/SL/6441-1.jpg

@Fedorda:

The set took a couple of hours - it's not particularly complex, it just eats a lot of grey beams and panels.

@Escaper:

Yeah, I had that design in mind when building. It's hard not to, when you use those round window panels. It's a *bit* more complex in construction than the sub, though. ;)
