Whew! This thing wasn't very fun to build, but I saw it through to the bitter end. It didn't turn out as nice as I would've liked, but I just wanted to get it done with.  :laugh:

Thanks for the comment! However although it kinda doesn't look like him, that is his official face!  :laugh:

Totally worth it. My favorite part is the protocol droid in the background. Nice eye!

I like it. The first thing that stuck out to me was the inside out poncho, very clever idea.  :thumbup:

Fantastic work Walt! Like what the others have said the use of the poncho on Qui-Gon is really clever and a nice 'cherry on top' of this very well-done build. :thumbup:

Very nice work Walt  :thumbup:

It's interesting to see how you did this; in hindsight I should have used more dark grey in mine as yours looks much nicer!  I especially like the 'skeleton' droid on the left wall and the shop counter - I found it really difficult to re-create this.  All you need now is to add a few Technic LEDs  :wink:

Cheers, Robin

I know, it just looks nothing like him, I used the older one in my sig because of that.

Oh! Yeah, it kinda doesn't now that you mention it. I wish he had a double sided head too, because that would've worked well with his headgear.

Thanks! I really liked your version though. It had the interesting hanging metal bits of junk and scrap. I originally wanted to stick that into mine, but it would've made it too awkward to photograph.  :wacko:

Hello!

A nicely assembled store! All the technical pieces are well-built and put in place. There's the right feeling for Watto's junkyard shop. :classic:

Cheers,

Great work!
Love the way you built the ground. Simple, but effective. And the counter...  :thumbup:

The amount of mechanical and junky details you've captured here is incredible. This is one of those MOCs that truly captures the feel of a location. My favorite part would have to be the protocol droid - not because it's there, but, rather, because the way you've posed it gives it the perfect impression of hanging limp and being powered off. :wub:

This is awesome!  You did a great job of capturing the scene, Walt.  This is one environment that I always wished Lego would release as a set.
Never tell me the odds!
