Finally! It's been like an entire month and I haven't built a MOC or really touched any Lego pieces until today. This is my entry for The Contest Group's second Two Week Challenge, Sig Fig Vig Contest.
The Vig is 17x20(Why did I do this to myself? 17 is such a difficult number to work with.) and is primarily composed Little Ugly Rock Pieces that I have added onto. They really work well when you want to make rocks but don't have a lot of bricks in a specific color. They also look a lot better as a jagged ground than a mountainside.
The back story for this scene is my Sig Fig is being hunted down because Emperor Palpatine is not a big fan of other force wielding individuals running around the galaxy. Little does he know his troops are in my domain ... Bricks! It's also noteworthy that MCLegoboy likes to smile while he destroys his enemies. He can't really help it much. He's having a blast! (Huh? HUH? HUH?!?! :D)
Just a nice little detail I thought I'd add.
Death from above!
Troopers Down! A little side note: I only have five 1999 style Stormtroopers and the two getting shot down are from 2006; they have flesh heads underneath their helmets. Death to the Fleshies!
Thanks for viewing, don't forget to rate and comment!

I was just looking at this again, and I thought "How did he get the one leg to stay attached?" Was it by means of using a rubber band or glue?
I am strictly Purist. While I am not one to leave all minifig pieces with their original counterparts straight from the bag, I usually leave things as if they would have come from a LEGO set. It is rare for me to make the flexible minifigs that many use here, but I felt it was needed here. Now, there is a Technic rubberband going from one shoulder, down through the torso out the bottom with a minifig hand in the bottom, and then it goes up to the other shoulder. The minifig hand is hooked in to the socket in the left leg and then the claw part of the hand is in the hole of the right leg. It can be seen in this picture but it is black on dark blue so it is a bit hard to see.
Sig Fig: 5/5 Completely original. Vignette: 8.5/10 Great SNOT work. Especially with the use of the BURPs. The upwards hill highlights your fig really well. Presentation 4/5: Clear and clean. Personal opinion: 4/5 Total: 21.5/25
Sig-Fig:5/5 it's very original, and really cool. Vig:8.5/10 I love the use of LURP's, to make the ground. Presentation: 5/5 Great pictures! Personal Opinion:5/5 Death to the fleshies! Overall: 23.5/25 Excellent score!
This is great! I have to give you a 5 for the sig-fig, it's entirely original, and innovative. The vig is a 7, where I do love the LURP's, it just looks a little bit... plain. It needs some foliage or at least some dirt, just a little more color. The presentation is a 5, excellent pictures and commentary. The person opinion is 4, death to the fleshies coaxed out a smile. The only reason it's a 4 is because I'm not a huge fan of star wars. Total is 21/25, great job!
Cool pose for your siggy, the angle at which you hold the blaster is really... It just attracts me. O_O Great work on the ground, I am disgusted at myself for not thinking of how to use those BURPS and LURPS in such a great way. :)

Neat! I like the action pose! He used to be a Sith? Or he just found Darth Maul's lightsaber?
Ah yes, the lightsaber. Well, I have two Sig Figs. One is a normal guy; he appears more frequently, but the original is my buddy icon, appears in some of my sci-fi builds, and a modified version appeared with my podracer and such. Parts of the design of my Sig Fig reflect myself and my interests. For instance, I have long blond hair, I wear glasses, one of my favorite colors is black, and I wear dark blue jeans about every day. My interests are primarily Science Fiction oriented, so I have space eyewear, Jedi robes, and then the blaster reflects my love of the original Lego Stormtrooper blaster. Now back to the lightsaber. I am a huge fan of Darth Maul, so I gave him a double-sided lighsaber. So to answer your question is short, no, the lightsaber was always part of my Sig Fig. Right now, Darth Maul in The Clone Wars uses his lightsaber that was cut back from Episode I, so it is not capable of being a double-sided lightsaber anymore. Although I guess my Siggy could have found Savage's lightsaber; I don't know if his will still be in tact after this season though because it could be destroyed when he fights Sidious. ;)
