Well, I keep looking at it. It's going to take a lot of work to get it castable, plus I don't have an outlet for all of the scale fabrics it's going to need. Will it come with a net for BB-8? Will it come with a Rey figure in 1:35? Honestly, I'm thinking this might not be popular enough sales-wise for such a kit, with all those add-ons hiking up the price. I just don't know... I'm always skittish about pulling the trigger. But this will look awesome standing next to the 1:35 AT-AT when it comes out as a diorama...

Opinions?

Do it! I'm still down for two...

I'm not worried about a rey figure.

Whoah. This is going to be sweet!

I really hope that DML decides to expand the 1/35 portion of their kit lineup.
Need to build 30 models per year until I'm 90 to clean out the stash. Time to get cracking!

So in the mean time I carry on with the main body.

Quick question for you Guys, for the back should I make it organic or mechanical? See last pics.
Bearing in mind the Luggabeast is both animal/robot.

Straight out of the box, just a bit of re-pausing.

Brilliant, thanks for that Jimi, I would have had to buy a micro machine to find out otherwise.

Bit more progress, modified the legs so that they are flush with the ground and closed the back of the beast...

Been away for awhile, so I've missed quite a bit that's been going on. I like where this build is going and am anxious to see the continued progress. Not sure I want to kit it though, but thank Chain Driven for the opportunity. I want to focus on 1/72 and 1/144 subjects, and have enough to work with at the moment anyway.
