This looks promising. I think I'll keep my eye on this one. I hope to see more soon.

After these MOC's are all done I want AC to start a thread showing off his parts collection.  Sometimes I wonder if he works at the factory.

Nowhere near Nathan's seemingly unlimited brick supply and just found out that he went to the Lego store that I frequently go to buy some bricks. Now what's up with that?

Looks like a good starting point for your community build!  :sweet:
I'm liking the look of it so far, but I do have one concern/question. Would using plates on angles be better for constructing the sand dunes? That way the may be smoother than having the angled bricks. Though I think you may get gaps where they meet the base plate and the top.

I've used the plates technique before but this time I wanted to make full use of the slopes. Plus it gave me a good reason to finally deconstruct this. :grin:

Very nice. I love the way you built the pod. I do think the separation between dunes and very flat baseplate is a bit too obvious, though.

The way you've constructed the sandy ridges is superb, and I like your use of plating to create the effect of ripples. :thumbup:

Interesting choice of greebling for the escape pod... though if I were to crash-land in the middle of nowhere, I suppose it would make sense to bring along a full complement of chain saws, pickaxes, and bits of Corellian freighters. :tongue:

Very nice. The use of the curved slopes is a nice trick to create a realistic desert. For as far as I can see, the escape pod looks pretty neat too, I would like to see a close-up of it.  :classic:

That's what happens when you run out of the right pieces (more slopes)!

The escape pod is an updated version of one I've built before but never posted until now.

Another great MOC AC! :thumbup: Even for such a barren desert setting you were still able to 'put life' into the build with the interesting use of those slope pieces for some much-needed surface variation on these sand dunes. And of course, the escape pod is fantastic and probably something that TLG should get inspiration from for next year's Droid Escape set (though at this stage their version would've probably been finalized).
