Star Mail Skyhook 75345 40557 Alt Build


Star Mail is a fan built theme that imagines a world of competing space parcel delivery companies. It spawned out of a discussion I started in the R.R. Slugger “Summer of Slug 2023” discord channel.

This build is called “Skyhook” and contains a hook on the back that can be lowered to pick up and drop off Star Mail containers. It is a small build but has a fun sturdy look. Also, importantly, when the hook is raised the ship lays flat for play and aerodynamic swooshing.

The design was built only using parts I picked up cheap from Star Wars Minifig collectors who purchased the 75345 501st Clone Troopers™ Battle Pack and 40557 Defense of Hoth. I was inspired by a Classic Space “Crater Plate” MOC done by ickebins on Rebrickable using the parts from 75334 Obi-Wan Kenobi vs. Darth Vader.

Timmy has gotten stuck in the future and is making a living working for Star Mail picking up mail containers using the Star Mail Skyhook.
