That control room looks great, I do have this feeling that astromech droids don't like the stairs  :laugh:

Amazing building and lovely flames. Maybe you could add another droid or somehow make the droid more key to the scene as thats what the comp is about - if you could manage that somehow you would be one of the best entries so far.

Nice building pjpviv. I love the glowing lava and is very reminiscent of Mustafar.

Your Nemodian guard and two Mustafarian workers look great and are similar the characters especially the Nemodian.

:thumbup: :thumbup:  Good luck in the comp.

Not all Astromech's have boosters. R2 has had a lot of modifications throughout the years and if my memory serves me correctly he was never produced with boosters (they where supposedly taken out, hence why he doesn't fly in the OT so the Lucas camp says) but I could be wrong.

May the Brick be with you!

Wow, nice MOC! I love your Mustafarians! The lava is fantastic. This is a great MOC all over!

I've done a lot of Mafia games over the years. Somehow, I haven't improved at all.

Thanks everyone for the feedback!

I'm not sure if all astromechs have thrusters but this one does  :wink:

Also I thought that I would post a few more pics down here to highlight some features. You can always click on the pictures to look at the flickr set.

My favorite parts are the stairs and the lava, and the tool used by the workers.  Great job using that trash can.
