Gungan Bongo Submarine
Minifig scale Gungan Bongo Sub.
About this creation
I think this is actually about the same size at the 'official' set by Lego, perhaps even smaller in width, but I've done my best to make this scaled appropriately to true mini-fig scale. Most importantly, all three figures are together in the central cockpit.
This was a difficult build. Aside from being completely SNOT in design, I also had to work with an odd-numbered stud width.

   The tail still droops - it's probably too heavy, so I may have to work on that a bit more.



Enlarge image
   The shape of the main hull may actually be a bit longer then it should be. I was aiming for an equalateral triangle.

   I was glad to find a good use for those massive grey windshield parts. :)

   I'd like to say that I personally think that the netting in the side cargo bays is a nice touch. :)

   Oh, and these windshields.... they don't come out.
So Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan are stuck in there.

Forever.

With Jar-Jar.

   This stand is actually the least stable thing of whole creation - I've gotta create a new one, but I do like the octopus. :)

   I'd rather have the bottom in sand-blue, but there just aren't the right pieces for it.

You know, this is one of those really accurate creations that REALLY makes you wish that the LEGO company could come out with something this briliant. Qui-gon! Obi-wan! Why, of all people did you guys have to be sacrafised to be in there with Jar-Jar FOREVER? Why couldn't it be that viceroy from the trade federation? WHY? hmmm... in retrospect, they could just put on their rebreathers and cut their way out of there with their lightsabers. hmmm

This is good, but I feel very bad for Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon for being trapped in there with JarJar.

I really like the interesting shape of the sub, it looks nearly organic. Forever with Jar-Jar. A fate worse than death. At least it's not air tight so, oh wait, the Jedi have those re-breathers and Jar-Jar has gills or something... hmmm. Oooooohhh!!!!! I got it, the water will short the equipment and they can't move and then they are fish food. Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon are a small price to pay for the death of Jar-Jar. Plus, now 'Ani' never leaves Tatooine and Luke isn't born and we don't have all the whining. Now we can focus on someone like Ayla Secura for six movies!!! :P

Wow. that is so cool!!! I like the streamlined design, and the detail... Yes, the net is a good touch, the tail, although droopy, is cool, and it is funny that poor Qui Gon and Obi Wan are stuck with Jar Jar! That would be enough to drive anyone mad!

Nice! I think the tail should be a little longer and thinner, but otherwise, nice job!

Incredible. You have AMAZING talent. Lego should make this a set!

Much better than the official! You actually got it all down more accurately! But the tail could use some more work I guess, to look more flexy.

You've got some GREAT stuff here, I love the sub, however I think that you should make the 'tail' a little longer. This is how the official set should have looked like! Excellent use of all those sleek parts! Keep up the good job! ~ Victor

Wow. Why anyone would want to put this much work into a vehicle like the Gungan "bongo" sub is beyond me. But you did an excellent job. This is the best use of those annoying Alpha Team windshield pieces I've seen yet! I question the use of them on the main cockpit where the three pilots sit, but I guess you had to make it match. I feel sorry for the Jedi though. Being stuck with Jar Jar. Eventually, one of them will probably have to gain a few Dark Side points and just put the idiot Gungan out of his misery.

Incredible work, Pepa, as always. I don't know how you do it, but your Mocs always turn out great. The only thing you need to work on is the tail's weight, and make sure to give Qui-Gon a lightsaber incase Jar Jar acts up! ;)
