Tri-droid . Techno Union Tri-droid . Tri-droids were enormous tripedal war machines used by the Techno Union and Confederacy of Independant Systems during the Clone Wars. The Tri-droid was a massively up-scaled version of it's predecessor, the infantry Octuptarra combat tri-droid. This version, used during the battle of Christophsis, was armed with 3 heavy laser cannons as opposed to the heavy artillery version as seen at the battle of Mygeeto. The Tri-droids were formidable in battle, eliminating infantry and tanks alike. Their rotating assemblies meant tthey could change facing almost instantly and made them alsmots impossible to approach. The Star Wars universe holds a wealth of wonderfully designed vehicles and droids. The prequels and the continuing Clone Wars series are a showcase for so many new and interesting concepts and have provided me with loads of inspiration! Like my AV-7, I'm not sure if LEGO will ever produce a version of this due to it's unorthodox shape and support issues - it'd probably make a very expensive set and not be hugely playable - but don't quote me on that. So out of love for all things droid-y, I thought I'd take a stab building this monster, the Techno Union Tri-droid! I found the best way to realise the Tri-droids sphereical shape was to simply build a LEGO sphere. I'd experimented almost sphereical winscreen and cockpit LEGO elements, but these just didn't look right. As LEGO don't produce transparent axles, I used a 3mm length of transparent perpex rod to support the Tri-droid. A little cheaty? Maybe - but it looks good! The Tri-droid towers over it's enemies... Anakin attacks from above, exploiting the Tri-droid's main weakness! It's still somewhat a work in progress as between takling the photos and posting I've though of several different solutions to various parts of the model, so I'll probably be working on a newer version really soon. Hope you enjoy looking at it! Comments and criticism welcome as always.
