Hi there

I started a vignette series, called "What if ... ?" Here is number 1.

What if Darth Vader became a gardener?

More on Flickr

The idea came from a picture I found on internet. Hope you like it

That's great, put a smile on my face.

I really like the idea of a DS tree. Maybe Vader could have used his lightsaber for cutting it.

Can't wait for the next numbers.

Wow, that is just hilarious! :laugh:

But shouldn't you give credit to the creator of the sphere and original grey Death Star sphere on this thread (before everyone starts thinking that you came up with the sphere design)?

Hi ILikePi
Thanks for your comment
On the one side I built these kind of spheres on my own before I discovered BrickShelf or Flickr, on the other side I already gave credits for this special Death Star design, as you can see below the pictures on Flickr. Furthermore I added an equator.

I love it. It's smart and funny, and it also reminds me of a pic from a review by Svelte I saw while looking through the boards.

I guess after Anakin got all chopped up, despite his loss, he still loved gardening. :tongue:

These are funny.  Thanks der seb and Mraz 'Skintas for bringing your creations to us.  I have an idea about turning the DS playset into some apartment scene ... now I just need to find the $$$ to buy the set.

Agreed.
Who cares if someone else designed a sphere that looks the same?
There's a limit to how many different spheres can be designed with LEGO :laugh:
Great job... now where's the next one? :wink:

That sphere in trans-orange would replace the hologram in the Mon Calamari set perfectly.... :wub:

Nice work.  I actually own that shirt from Threadless.  I've had a lot of people comment on it when I wear it.   :classic:

Nice job on recreating the scene in using LEGO elements.

Amazing MOC there! I'd love to build one for my counter (If you don't mind me using your design) but..... what is that purple flowerpot piece?

Thanks for sharing this! I look forward to more in the series!
