Lego Star Wars Tank Droid from Episode III Revenge of the Sith
About this creation
Hi everyone, this is my MOC of the NR-N99 Persuader-Class Droid Enforcer, also known as the Snail Droid, or Corporate Alliance Tank Droid. This is one of my all time favourite vehicles from Star Wars, and i've always wanted to build one in Lego. After going through a few different changes, and facing many little niggley challenges along the way, I think it's safe to say that it was more challenging than I first though. But, it's done, and i'm super stoked with how it turned out :)
I hope you all like it!

Some interesting information about it:
Nicknamed the snail droid, the NR-N99 Persuader-class droid enforcer was originally planned to appear in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones during the First Battle of Geonosis and animatics of the film were made of the tanks running over Clone troopers. The NR-N99 would later return for Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, but at one point a different design was considered during the production of the film before the older design was chosen for its final appearance. For the sequences that featured the NR-N99 in Episode III, OOM pilot battle droids were put inside the tanks, suggesting that it was not an entirely automated vehicle.
