Finally finished my MOC of the Emperors arrival at Death Star II. The model is around 10 kilo and contains 1 Emperor, 1 darth Vader, 8 Royal Guards, 30 Snow trooers, 30 Scout troopers, 35 stormtroopers, 49 emperial officers, 9 AT-AT drivers, 9 sand troopers, 12 Tie-pilots and 5 Shuttle pilots, a total of 189 minifigs. It is a small copy of a MOC I found on Brickshelf: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=146455

I have only a few pictures of the MOC yet, but I will update my Brickshelf-folder soon.

Wow! 8-° It looks very impressive!!! A minor nit pick: I would try to get rid of the fleshtone heads and replace with 'normal' heads.

Great work *sweet*  when i first saw the BS version some time ago i was very tempted to make one, but the costs were just too much for me so if you dont mind me asking just how much did this set you back in bricks alone?

Also will you fight the temptation to make it bigger?

KhoRne good idea with changing the fleshtone minifigs, I tried to keep them original, but your right, it would look bether with yellow minifigs. The only problem is Grand Morf Tarkin (Whom I donīt really think was in the original scene) I havenīt got a Yellow head for him.
Vader316 I am not tempted of building it even bigger, because I have enough problems getting my wife to accept this big MOC in this size. Afterall it is 96x96 studs and 32 bricks high. The bricks havenīt really costs me that much, around 100 euros in LEGOLand Billund PAB, most of thebricks I allready had (have been collecting old light grey bricks since the new grey came). The minifigs have been pretty expensive, bought most of the on Bricklink, to the market price.

Ebay is your friend, in the USA you can find auctions for stormies at 3-2$ each. That's not a bad price.

This MOC is definitly impressive, I just like all the attention to small details. I think this is the kind of MOC we should all have in our house when friends came. Shown this way, our weird hobby becomes something really attractive and more people might join our community  X-D

Woah, that looks amazing morten_somme. Must have taken a lot of work. It's all so symettrical and just great. You've managed to get it all just right. Arguably, more figs would look good, but you've done enough anyways. The best thing is it's a hangar that could be any part of the Death Star, you could even make a New Hope scene.

Really IMPRESSIVE MOC here Morten  8-°

Now I understand why Kim snatched ALL the 2x2 black tiles in the PAB during this years' event in the UK !!  :-P

I really like the setting of that HUGE MOC and your collection of Imperial MFs is really impressive !! That reminds me I need to inflate mine  ;-)

Will you keep this baby on display or will you dismantle it for another project ?

Please upload you BS Gallery soon  :-P  I cannot wait to see more pics hehe !!

*yoda*

Finally got my brickshelf gallery oploaded:

http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=197402

And Yoda, yes I will dismantle it, propably very soon, need my grey bricks to other projekts, and need the space in my appartment. Maybe I will put my old MF together, and make another scene of this MOC.
The problem with a MOC this big, is that you canīt move it around in your home, so you have to leave where you build it. I canīt hide it away under a bed or anything.

excellent!  But make a custom shuttle to go with it.  I never liked the official version  :-X

And I thought I had a decent amount of stormtroopers  ;-)

Very clean, very polished, very...Imperial  *vader*

Wow, an awesome creation. :-) It's too bad that you'll have to dismantle it so soon, but I can understand way; that thing is huge!
I hope that someday I'll have enough pieces and skill (and room, lol) to make a MOC of this scale.

Very good work. *y*

This diorama is very impressive and inspiring. I have seen many of this scene but I think yours has been executed the best. I love the amount of detail you have added rather then taking the easy road and just throwing in several tens of Stormtroopers, a Shuttle and the Emperor. The catwalk looks right at home and I love the shot where it appears as though you are looking down onto the scene from it.

I feel inspired enough to try something like this now, but if I ever go through with it, then it must be on a smaller scale ;-)

Kudos on this fantastic MOC.

woooow! Really a great MOC.
But I especially like the minifigs.
It's great to see such a fine army on display.
Do you intend to expand your army still ?
How long have you been collecting these minifigs to get so much of them?

My guess is that Morten started around 1999 when a friend of his introduced him to SW LEGO :-P  ;-)

This would probably go best in the "Buy, Sell, Trades, and Finds" forum.  If you can't buy online (Bricklink would be your best option, followed by ebay), then I'm afraid you won't be able to unless you know someone who is looking to give them to you for free...

Well you don't need to have a Tarkin figure, he wasn't in the scene (Tarkin died on board the first Death Star in Episode IV, while the Emperor's arrival is a scene from Episode VI).
Anyway, I was more than impressed with your MOC. It is stunning. It really looks like it, and the inside of the Death Star is just great.  *y*  *y*  *y*  *y*
