Star Wars: The Old Republic :: :: BT-7 Thunderclap

So, the game I've been working on has finally been unveiled in its entirety to the masses. I had the opportunity a few years ago (wow, it's been years?) to concept the trooper ship for Star Wars: The Old Republic. It was quite a challenge to make something new that felt familiar, was large enough to house a player, and had a radically different silhouette from all the other awesome player ships in the game. Here it is in all its glory, the Rendili Hyperworks BT-7 Thunderclap:

The icing on the cake was finding out that people were already doing custom lego builds of it. Beautiful stuff. I'm blown away.

I should also note that the Thunderclap's interior was designed by the wildly talented Ryan Dening.
