Hey everyone. I've been very busy lately, so I haven't had much time at all for Eurobricks. :cry_sad: Now that I have some spare time, I'm going to share some more MOCs with you all. :classic:

This has been built for... ohh... two years now? I kept taking parts off to use elsewhere, but I finally decided to get it finished and out of the way! And here it is, Grievous' Lair, in the playset style of Cloud City and this year's Echo Base.

I tried to incorporate as many things as I could from the CW episode where this location debuted. Unfortunately, I couldn't make Gor, General Grievous' pet, as I didn't have the parts. Anyway, on we go...

Thanks for looking. C&C welcome! :classic:

Beautiful! I especially like the Starfighter. I have to make my own for Kit some day. Great work! :thumbup:

Wow, I really love this! It reminded me of CC when I saw it, funny to see you had the same idea :tongue:

All the little sections are very well made, especialy the door, the pit and the control room.

I also like the statue idea, but that might've been better in a seperate room with a door, between the entrance and the hallway.

Overall you did an amazing job!

Very nice work here Jammiedodger :thumbup: :thumbup:, I love the use of the old GG and the white lightsabre blades as a statue :wub:. All the little rooms are great also, this would make a great set, but you may need to cut out GG and his droid so people will buy the GG starfighter set to add it to this one :wink:.

This is one of my favourite episodes from CW, and you effectively captured many moments of it :thumbup:

Hope you won't give up the idea to make Grievous' pet, once you'll have the right parts :wink:

:oh:

That's one of my favorite SW:TCW episodes and all the scenes look just right.

With some minor adjustments, this would be a great set!

Excellent job Jammiedodger! :thumbup:

I :wub: it 'Jammiedodger', a fantastic idea....I wonder what other CW scenes could be done Cloud City style.....would make a great contest eh ? :grin:

At least Nardar wasn't dead.....yet....never trust a four arm guy to fight clean. :devil:

May the Eurobrick be with you 'Jammiedodger' ! :classic:

This is an awesome looking set! I love that you gave it a "real playset" look to it, incorporating all the sections/scenes from the episode. My only suggestion would be to build a custom JSF rather than using an official one. :thumbup:

Well, it's about time you posted this! :laugh: I looks like you improved it since I last saw it, and it looks much cleaner now with all the tiling and stuff. :thumbup: All the play features are nice and overall it looks indeed like a Cloud City style playset. Nice work.

It is a custom one. :wink: It's just based on the design of the official JSFs.

I shall attempt to recreate Grievous' Lair myself one day... some day...

This is awesome Jammie! :thumbup: This is a great idea and I think LEGO should consider more sets like this. And I'm like you, I tend to have my MOCs sit around before I post them! :laugh:

Simply wonderful!

There's nothing I like better than a well-made SW MOC, and this is better than well-made! :blush:

I love this huge masterpiece! :wub:

Thanks so much everyone. :sweet: My first blog too!!!

Yes, that is a custom JSF. I modified Ahsoka's as it was the one most like Fisto's. :wink:

Thanks again!

I only do OT with the occasional PT, but I think I'd make an exception if LEGO were to release a set just like this. I especially like the statue. Simply brilliant use for the outdated figure.

Great work Jammiedodger, as soon as I saw it I was reminded off the clone wars episode prior to reading your post. :thumbup:

This is a wonderul MOC, I would loe to see this as a set.

If you were to just have the main base of the lair it would make for a great kamino or cloud city MOC.
