This is part of my Star Wars Lego Army, as it looked in the beginning. I suppose they acted more like a band of pirates, rather than an army - judging by their appettite for treasure ... but they were organized and commanded like an Army.
About this creation
My Lego Army is called the "The Shadow Force" because they are secretive, and usually keep a low profile. But they do get around alot ... traveling the galaxy, conducting secret operations and hunting for treasures !
The main leader of my Lego Army is an ancient Sith Lord, simply known as The Dark One , and his Sith apprentice Darth Oblivion . Together, they have also started a small Sith Training Program - currently with 12 Sith Warrior students. The Forces of Evil, Greed, and Corruption is what started this "rouge" Sith Army ... and is what keeps it going. The promise of quick wealth attracts many brave and adventurous beings to join The Shadow Force ... and the promise of a quick death keeps everyone loyal. (muahahahaha!) As for the droids ... well, they just do what they're told, and follow their programming (lol).
After the treasure chests are put away, the Shadow Force starts each day with an early morning inspection ... checking their weapons and gear, making sure all battle droids are functional, and warming up the speeders.
Soon after inspection, the speeder bikes zoom away ... scouting ahead for any danger ... as the Shadow Force begins their long march.
This particular march is led by Darth Oblivion - followed by 12 Sith warrior students, and a small attack force. When the Sith students training is complete, they will graduate and receive their black Sith Hoods !
Upon their return, they assemble back into formation ... and receive additional orders and instructions for the day.
Here is a closer view of the Scout Trooper's upgraded (modified) speeder bikes !
Oh man does this bring back memories. When I was a young kid, LEGO (no surprise) was my favorite toy. Me and my brother would fight over the little LEGO diamonds and coins, and 100$ bills. I used to fill treasure chests just like in this MOC, I even built a treasure space ship. Of course it was multi-colored and agonizingly awful, but I had fun!
