Opee Sea Killer and Bongo Submarine

Newer Older

In honor of Episode I being re-released in theaters today, I decided to finally take some good pictures of my Opee Sea Killer and Gungan Tribubble Bongo submarine.

The fish was originally completed in January 2007, the submarine a few months earlier. I had started on the fish first, almost 6 months prior, but I had gotten as far as the legs in back and then shelved it until winter. After I finished the submarine, I went back to work on the fish. Very little has changed since then - the tail on the submarine got an upgrade sometime in 2009, but that was it.

The fish and sub are both, roughly, minifig scale (in the approximate 1-foot to 1-stud ratio). After I had finished the sub, I then knew how big to make the fish to match.

I have placed this (fish only) on LEGO Cuusoo. Vote for this if you want LEGO to create a set like this!

    if you focus on each little detail some of seems kind of off, but when step back and look at the moc, especially the use of the rare colors, it's truly quite amazing. now perhaps a scale colo-claw-fish and sand-aqua-monster?
