Like most people here, I have always been a fan of Star Wars films - and recently I saw a trailer for the new animated Star Wars Film: The clone wars. The new film is weeks away from being released in Europe and USA - and from what I have seen of the CGA animation - it sure looks cool.
So last week, I decided to build one of my favourite Star Wars droid: The Hailfire. The IG-227 Hailfire, was a droid tank constructed for the InterGalactic Banking Clan prior to and during the Clone Wars.
If you got a NXT retail kit, two universal joins and the two green wheels from the Green devastator, you can build your own wheel droid. You can find the instructions on LEGO NXTLog. The model also has an optional dual missile launchers (controlled by NXT) and an RFID sensor to identify other droids.
And talking of NXTLog, LEGO have just introduced a new account system. So while you are there check out the new stuff.
