Theed Diversion

24 posts in this topic

A group of Naboo soldiers with a Gian speeder await Captain Panaka's command to engage the Trade Federation Droid regiment creating a diversion to steer them away from guarding the hangar entrance.

Commentary:

The last pic was photoshopped to add the lens flare, if not allowed I'll substitute the original without the lens flare. Two 16x32 tan baseplates were used as base footprint and there's no overhang whatsoever as the various pics show. Took a couple of days to design, the Gian speeder alone took two days to build until I was satisfied with it and less than two weeks to complete. As with the other two entries, I've kept the design and build true to the scenes, no gimmicks necessary.

Here's a reference pic that I found for this scene.

Unless KimT finds something that requires a change to comply with the rules, this is the final version.

Comments and suggestions are welcomed but I won't be making anymore changes as I've got to get going on the Large scene.

Enjoy viewing more pics here or by clicking on any pic above before posting your comments. I'd also appreciate if you mention what details you liked about it or not.

It doent matter where you go in Theed, the buildings and scenery are all beatiful. Something which you captured in this moc.

As always, great architecture on the Naboo structure AC! :thumbup: I also love your version of the Gian speeder, much much better than the official set.

Good luck on the contest!

That's a really nice scene - the speeder is great.

The only suggestion would be to introduce some colour in the buildings other than tan, perhaps sand green or light brown, just to give the buildings a more realistic look compared to the original scene.

This will help it look aged also. The foliage attached to the walls looks nice.

Very good creation AC.

It is a very good choosen scene from Ep. I.

I like the clean look it has and also with the added interior.

As I've been on the TPM theme lately, might as well continue it with this.

Tried to get that speeder designed more like the one in the movie and good thing I got the bricks in the right colors.

Actually considered mixing up the tan but I didn't have enough dark tan bricks to cover.

Just rolling along with the Naboo MOCs and couldn't let the filler space stay empty.

Nice entry AcPin :thumbup:

Its good that you didnt try to add heaps of detail but its really subtle in this MOC. The use of the quarter pipe piece is really cool but how did you get it upside down? :wacko:

Great entry, ACPin :thumbup:

I really like that speeder, and of course those Theed buildings.

A shame you don't have enough of the right mini-figs.

But that is a wonderful creation! It looks almost exactly as if it would be in the Lego Star Wars game!

Nice MOC as always. Is that Panaka to the left? If it is, he's not white- err... yellow.

Join in the fun by doing your own!

In the actual set, the front building with the arch was just a plain octagonal shape structure and not much detail except for the windows. That's for you to figure out! :wink:

Didn't want to order from BL just for the minifigs so I just made up some.

More pics of the speeder are available in the full gallery.

Wonder no more and just start building. :grin:

AC, if you win first and get the white boba, I command you to make a MOC for it!

Too early to be thinking that as I'm sure most will probably wait until the end to post their entries. I'd rather not wait that long as the next entry for small category is in progress.

Hey ACPin,

extremely cool MOC!

However, I can't help but think that the would maybe be better in dark bluish gray or something?

Anyway, :thumbup:
