Here are some photos I took of the Star Wars Weekend at LEGOLand, California last weekend (June 13 & 14).  We had a great time and there were several people there from local LEGO User Groups on hand to show off their MOCs.  Some amazing stuff as you can see below.  I spent a little time talking to some of the folks and everyone was really nice.  Here you go:

Hangar Bay from the Clone Wars (love all the little details)

Overall, it was a great event and the kids had a blast.  Even the wife was mildly entertained.

Thanks for sharing the pictures, Dunamis... It looks like a great and successful event!

On a different note, does anyone know if there will be something special happening at Legoland California this July 4th weekend?

Yes the last photo is the Duplo promotional brick that they give out to all the attendees.

Not sure you might check the LEGOLand website.  I think they have fireworks and give out promo bricks.

Wow, those are some real awesome creations, I would kill for a gunship/torrent hanger like that!  Although I have to say I was most stunned by that Hoth Base, I wish mine was that cool  :wub:  Especially the light up interior and the bunker, that really makes me thing about re-designing my echo base, which I will most likely do anyway once the Hoth set comes out in the USA!  :wink:

Thanks for this pictures, those were some great shots!

Wow. Plain and simple Wow.  I'm totally asthonished :cry_happy:
Thanks for sharing those pictures!

Some great scenes with lots of details.
I like the Great Pit of Carkoon, although it's a little bit out of scale it's fantastic. Too bad you havent got pictures from it's interior/belly which is barely visible in the included pictures.

dunamis, thanks for sharing these great photos!  :thumbup:

It seemed you have a terrific weekend, viewing these amazing Star Wars dioramas. It's very impressive, and the illustration of each scene is very detailed. I must admit that the Hanger Bay and the Hoth battle scene is the ones that swept my feet. The amount of RGS and V-19 is exactly what a real hanger should look like. While the Hoth scene, I didn't expect that the interior is so vast filled with many nice details and aircrafts storing.

Those look great! Really love all the small details in all the displays.  I guess the chrome silver stormtrooper is trying to create a diversion!  :laugh:

I really liked Jabba the Hutt, it seemed like slave leia was out of scale though.

Didn't see this threat when it first came out but there's some awesome creations in there.  That Venator hangar ... drool.  Love to have one at my place but the best photo for me will be the snowboarding chrome stormtrooper.  A very nice touch and sense of humour.
