Alternates for Lego set #9490
About this creation
Ahh, the challenge of building alternates using nohing but the parts in one set. I love it! If possible, I like to keep the alts "in theme", just like the alternate pictures on the back of old sets.

Alternate 1: Imperial porta-loo. "Lousy, cheap Emperor, too tight to build us Stormies a proper garrison, all we get is these stinkin' porta-johns!"





Alternate 2: Mos Eisley Secondhand shop:



Alternate 3: Robotic Rodeo


Alternate 4: Probe droid prototype. It's a little known fact that the Imperial probe droid, famed for discovering the Rebel's secret base on Hoth, was first tested on Tatooine some years earlier. This early design was large and clumsy unlike the later black version but the concept worked well. Of note was the lid which would shut to protect the delicate sensors from the harsh Tatooine sand.






Baby this is a really neat set, highly recommended! I strongly suggest you pick up at least one!

The only time I've ever seen a MOC with 2 likes as the most popular this week! Still, it's deserving, and I especially like the rodeo. Great work!

So, I come in to this page thinking there's not a whole lot one can do with a set that consists mostly of a few huge round pieces. You totally blew that idea away. These are great! I never would have thought of any of those. Nice work :)

Great alternates! I have this set and was going to leave it original, but now, maybe not! Very creative and nicely done!

Very cool and creative! I've got the original version of this set, something tells me they're running out of ideas for SW sets as they keep reproducing them.

I too am quite fond of making alternative but I never thought to post pictures of them. Your alternatives seem much more creative than mine though.

The toilet looked more like the capsule of Apollo 12, but still, some great ideas!

Brilliant! I love the Probe Droid Prototype! I think I've got to get that set to make some cool MOCs. Great Job anyway!

Really nice alternates! The rodeo is my favorite just because it's so crazy :) Love the frozen action. I'll see if I can join you later with a build of my own, my son gave me this set for my birthday...mostly because he really wants the droids, win-win-situation ;)
