Despite some requests for particular photos to be used and some submissons I was sent, this week's captioning image comes from Darth Homer's gallery on flickr.



I can't get enough of that Republic Star Destroyer, and the expressions on these guys faces opens up a lot of caption possibilities. Model builder Erik Varszegi can be seen second from left. What are they all talking about? What are they thinking? I bet it's funny! Smile

Entries must be in by Friday evening. Winning prize this time is a mini ARC Starfighter.

Guy on the far left: (Thinking) "I wonder how many dark red parts I could steal off this thing..."

Eric: (Thinking) "That guy isn't even listening to me; he's just staring at the bridges."

Guy on the far right: (Thinking) "If he doesn't shut up, I swear I'll hit those turbolaser batteries with this newspaper!"

Eric: "No, you can't have it!"

6)Eric: So. Anyone here have a car bigger than a hatchback?
Awkward silence....
Eric:Looks like I'm stuck with it for another year, anyone who wants it, feel free to call.
Really awkward silence...

7)Eric:We can take the Spruce Moose, Hop in Smithers.
Smithers:But sir I couldn't possibly-
Eric holds up gun to smithers
Eric:I said hop in.

Cool Eric:I'll give it to you for 3 clones.
Onlooker:2
Eric: Sold.

entry #1: Guy in Green: "...and so, to make a long story short, I bought this instead of a car and designed my garage to look like the opening battleof Episode III. Sure riding the bus is a pain, but its totally worth it! Tomorrow I'm gonna take her out for a wash! blah, blah, blah,.....

Guy in Hat: "son, there is no dang way I'm letting you marry my daughter."

entry #2: Guy in Green: "...thousand pieces, including many that are expensive or hard to find. For example, up here on the nose are Boba Fetts' minifig legs... yes? you have a question?"

Guy in Hat: "boy, have you ever kissed a girl?"

1. Guy on far left: Hey Eric, Did we design special figs for this ship?

Eric: No, why?

Guy on far left: Because one of em's flicking me off.

2. CLONE'S TRAVELS

Book 1. Day four of the expedition and our Venator ship has gone farther than any other clone ship has. Today we have come in contact with a race of supergiants that seem to be, dare I say it, MULTI-JOINTED! Shocked I don't know if they are friendly.... but we have identified them as Geekus Megalus so we are bieng very cautious.

Clone 1: What do you mean?
Clone Commander: They have been standing around for hours and drooling on the ship!
Clone 1: So?
Clone Commander: WE"RE SUPPOSED TO BE GETTING A OIL CHANGE!
Clone 1: Thats typical human behavior.
Clone Commander: Huh?
Clone 1: Human Repairmen take up to 12 hours for a 2 minute job.
Clone Commander: Now I get it.

Guy in green shirt (with NASCAR driver voice)
I tell you what we had a great ship all day long till we bumped into the invisible hand and got some damage from that but we re-enterd and Cody got the new nose on and we couldn't make up those parsects we lost but the Palpatine 08 Venator was just awesome.

Conversation 1:
Man in cap: Now that is a sweet Lego model.

Eric: What are you talking about? This is replica version.

Guy on right: Yeah right. Prove it!

*Eric proceeds to push a button on a small control and gun turrets start rotating* Cool

Guy admiring model: This is so coo... hey it's moving! Oh sweet. Uh, hey why's it aimed at me? Shocked Uh guys, uh... AHHHHH!

*Turrets fire* (Yeah, I know i'm evil Wink )


Conversation 2:
Eric: Just so you know, I also built a Super Star Destroyer in scale with The official Star Destroyer, but I won't let anyone see it. IT'S ALL MINE!!! *maniacal laugh* Twisted Evil

Guys on right: Aww no fair! Sad


Conversation 3:
Eric: And this is the reason why all the other Ep. III sets are so awful.
*points to Republic Destroyer*

Guy with cap: You mean it's your fault!?! Evil or Very Mad

Guy on right: LET'S GET HIM!!! Evil or Very Mad


Conversation 4:
Eric: Actually, the support inside is constructed out of MegaBlox.

Guy with cap: Wha...wha...what did you say... Shocked

Guy on right: TRAITOR!!! LET'S GET HIM!!! Evil or Very Mad

Guy on left: This evil must be destroyed!
*Proceeds to get oil and a lighter*
Guy on left: Burn unholy creation! BURN!!! Twisted Evil

1) Yes, I had my own army of enslaved wookies build this model...they're now working on a full scale version.

2) Why my mom told me my gift had "some assembly required" I had no idea my hair would turn grey before I was finished. (From the 3rd guy in the picture).

3) I wonder if they're just trying to compensate for something with a Star Destroyer this big...

4) I wonder if this can transform into Mega-Maid.

5) This is really cool and all...but this is a Star Trek convection.

6) As the head of engineering, I must say I am most impressed with the ship design. However, the docking facility seen below the ship appears to be most impractical.

7) I built this model six years ago for my senior design project. Now Lucas uses it and I don't even get credit!

Entry 1:

Guy in the green: Yeah, this model has 35,000 plus parts and took four weeks to build and even a few overnighters ...

Guy on the left: Hey, did you know you have a 1x1 tile missing?

Entry 2:

Guy on the left: Now how many Megabloks did you say you used in this Model?

Guy in the green: Jaw drops ... gasps.

Entry 3:

Two guys on the right: Hello, I'm Bob and this is my assistant, Bob and over there Tyson. I'm sorry to tell you but LEGO never sent in the $20 booth fee and we are going to have to ask you to leave.

Guy in the green: But ....

Guy on the right with the hat (Bob): As you see I have a bottle of gas in my hands. If you don't leave now we are going to light this puppy on fire.

Guy on the left (Tyson): Look, Bob, if we pour the gas here it will burn the hottest.

Another Day in the Green Room
Green: Okay, guys. Lucas wants us to do this scene with a "real" model. Apparently, he got a lot of flack about using virtual CAD models instead of real plastic. ( Wink to Darkazmo)

CapMan: Do I get to make the engine sounds? I ain't pushin' it if I can't make engine sounds!.

Green: Yes, Jeff. You get to make engine sounds. Let's go over the scene again. First, only handle parts that cannot be seen by the camera. We are going to start over there and move slowly through the camera's. As we come into the battle ... (drone) ... (drone) ...

FrontMan: (thinks) How do I open the hangar? Does it pop off or slide forward? Maybe it opens like a toy chest?

Green: ... Then as the Invisible Hand comes into view this ship is attacked. ... (drone) ...

PaperMan: (thinks) I cannot believe this. Lucas is going to fill this room with flies as BuzzDroids and I have to swat them with my "Tractor Beam". This may be the worst Star Wars yet.

Green: ... I've got some cotton balls here for the explosions. Be sure to stick the part colored red on the ship so it looks right.

FrontMan: How am I supposed to fly twenty ARC-170's and the Jedi StarFighters?

Green: We'll use sticky-tack. We'll put the JSF's on your right finger tips, one flight wing on your left hand, and the others on your shoulders and head. Now for the turbo lasers, I have some toothpicks ... (drone) ...

FrontMan: (thinks) Great! I get the one job that never lets me forget my acne problem.

Green: ... And no eating until after the tenth shoot. I know it tastes like campfire marshmallows, but George is paying us very well to wait. Okay, Let's Go!

CapMan: Alright! Warp Factor 9, Mr. Sulu! vwah, vwah, Vwaaah, VWAAAA!!

Green: No, NO, NOOO!!!

fX: Crash, Tinkle.

#1: Whenever Eric wants to lose a tooth he just gets one of his replicas to blow it out.
<notice the laser going into erics mouth>

#2: Eric: <to man on left> Hey don't touch that! <draws lightsaber replica>
Man on left: Eric, I am your father
Eric: NOOOOOOOO!
<Beats him with the lightsaber>
Eric: <to the men on the right> Where was I?
<Men to the right slowly back up a few steps and then start into a mad sprint>
Eric: <chasing them> There is no escape from the dark side! Mwuhahahaha

(From the left, numbered #1 to #4)

#1 (Thinking) Oh man. I and #3 and #4 planned to steal this model as soon as #3 turns off light, but this model is bigger than I thought and #3 is not doing anything. He seems to be stunned.

#2 "So I got those pieces and..."

#3 (stunned by sheer size of creation)

#4 (Thinking) Hmm how do I wake up #3 so he can turn off lights? I really want that model!!

Guy with hat: (thinking) "I don't care how much it weighs, my legs are getting tired... Wonder if those bridges will support me..."[evilgrin]
Guy with paper: yeesh, when is he gonna finish talking... I gotta finish reading my latest FBTB newsletter.
Łast guy(frank) Eww pretty shiny plastic! I can see my face reflected in it, and Boy! I sure look good from any angle!

I thought the Frank thing was pretty funny, but not much else...
