Hey guys, Natowan11 here. In case you're new, I used to make a miniseries called "The astronaut jedi", a story about how a Mars Mission astronaut, named Jeremy Brees, got sucked in to the Star Wars universe by an explosion that ripped a hole in the space-time continuum, and how he tried to get back home. Unfortunately, I lost interest in Legos half way into the series, & took a long break from them. Then the Lego movie came out, & brought some interest back. I probably won't be able to finish the series (even if I wanted to, I don't have a lot of the necessary pieces), but I was looking at my old posts, & noticed that my "The astronaut jedi's fighter details" post needed some clarification. You see, the fighter in question is called the Trilon, Inc. Astro Special Mk 2 (see post for details), but I never showed the Mk 1. That's because I had forgotten how to make it (it was already old then), but a few days ago, it came back to me. So I rebuilt it the best that I could. Now for the details. The Mk 1 was a bare-bones kind of starfigher, just laser cannons, engines, a cockpit, & shields. But its laser cannons were the envy of starfighter designers everywhere. They could turn a full 360 degrees, from straight forward, all the way around so that they pointed BEHIND the ship, & then back again. Unfortunately, they were rather on the bulky side. Additionally, the ship had no hyperdrive engines, no proton torpedoes, no cargo rack, & no tow cable like the Mk 2 later did. (I did say "bare-bones", didn't I?) All those things came later. Also, the Mk 2 has been slightly updated, but that's for a later post. Pic 1 shows a front view of the ship, Pic 2 shows a rear view of the ship, Pic 3 shows the underside with emphasis on the bulky laser cannon assembly, Pic 4 shows the laser cannons turned backwards, & Pic 5 shows the laser cannons compared to a minifigure & the Mk 2's more compact laser cannons. Yeah, they're big. This is part 1 of my update/clarification of my old astronaut jedi's starfighter post. Part 2 will include slight updates to the Mk 2 (now 2.1) that were made since the old post, as well as why the Mk 2 is superior even without the multi-directional laser cannons of the Mk 1. Stick around for that one, as it may be my last post.
