Ranging from three to twenty feet tall, crab droids could use its legs for attack infantry in its way. As well as their powerful pincer legs, LM-432 crab droids were armed with twin blasters some crabs were unable to get rid of opponents who managed to get on top of them; a weakness some clone troopers exploited.
I give the credit of this model to "Rocco Foresta" because i based my model on his.
i got a reply from lego just now, here is what they had to say;
Thanks for getting in touch with us.
I think that your cool creation would make a brilliant LEGOŽ set, but for legal reasons we can't use it!
We have a team of experts in Denmark whose job it is to dream up new LEGO sets, themes and toys. They tell me it actually takes years to plan everything. They need to test all the new ideas, talk to the factory about how to make them, work out what sort of box is needed and then deliver the new sets to all the shops in 130 countries! This means that there's a good chance they're already working on something similar to your idea.

thanks 4 all the posative comments, hav u got any idea how i could get in contact with lego and send some pictures?? it would be no good sending them 2 george lucas, as its lego who design the sets. Any help would be gladly appreciated. thanks guys
Very good Crab droid good scale and all- i happen to heve those pieces as dark red (which you ran out of) Would be kinda perfect- maybe you should make only fourlegged version of Crabdroid as seen in the Clone Wars series- Jesse below talk strangely about that- there are crabdroids in cw and i think they use them more later since they have animated one to "a Bombad Jedi"- episode- but i wonder why it has only four legs in there and in upcoming Republic heroes game...
I think that you should really write a letter to George Lucas and ask him if he could include this in the new Clone Wars series. I kind of agree that this should be a LEGO set. It truly feels like a part of the Star Wars Expanded Universe.
