The Koensayr's BTL Y-Wing Fighters often got their cockpit opening mechanism jammed in sub-zero operating temperatures. On Hoth It was not good, not good at all.

    Thanks isenn!

    cheeser359: Thank you for your feedback. The DVD extras are the industry's gift to us. Before it was just bits and pieces – and Cinefex. I'm a fan of the making-of's and I'm having a blast figuring out how to do simple "old school" effects with toys.

    You make a good suggestion to SavaTheAggie, this shot is actually done the way you describe. The Snowspeeder in the background never saw any water.

    These are great a friend of mine sent these along. Have you contemplated sending a pitch to Lego. These images would look fantastic as Box art or Point of Purchase posters. There are a ton of success stories mad of less.

    Superb effect and thanks for showing how you did it, that`s just awesome! I have to say my two fave characters: R2D2 and Darth Maul, are under-represented a bit here to my shock and disappointment lol
