Cowboy Bebop: The Swordfish II

OK, 3, 2, 1, let's jam!
Hey everyone, thanks for taking the time to check out my project! I'm a huge fan of Cowboy Bebop, and I've always wanted to see a set based on the show. Seeing as Lego doesn't really make sets based on anime, I figured I'd do it myself! In fact, this isn't even my first try at a Cowboy Bebop set. I made one a number of years ago, but it never ended up reaching the 10k mark. However, I've learned a lot since then in terms of both creating and marketing projects on this site, so I'd appreciate your support on this second go!

About the Set
The main attraction of this set is obviously the Swordfish II, the ship that the show's main character Spike Spiegel pilots in most episodes. The model clocks in at 451 pieces and also includes:
  • 4 minifigures (and Ein)
  • a handful of accessories
  • a small vignette of of the Bebop's main seating area
  • a display stand that includes a plaque
In addition, both the vignette and the ship can be removed from the base to be displayed anyway you'd like!

The figures included are the main crew of the Bebop:
  • Spike Spiegel
  • Jet Black
  • Faye Valentine
  • Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV
  • Ein
I tried my best to stay as faithful as possible to the original characters with these minifigures, but unfortunately I was limited by the Lego Ideas rule about only using the existing part library. In a perfect world I would've made them all custom hair pieces and designed a new corgi element, but sometimes you've just gotta make do!

I was also tempted to include some characters outside of the main cast (like Julia, Vicious, or another villain for them to fight), but opted not to for now. If you guys want any more figs, let me know in the comments!
To wrap things up, I'm really trying to commit to updating my projects from here on out, so if you have any ideas for improvements or additions, let me know in the comments! Thanks so much for taking the time to check out my project, and I hope you'll consider supporting!
