Death Star seems to have a bit of an infestation... Tarkin's got the technicians looking into it.

Well, there's your problem!

It's just a little vignette I put together while playing with methods for building walls and doorways. I'm pretty pleased with how the Imperial technicians turned out, though I'm sure the AT-ST driver uniform and black cap combo has been done before.

Anyway, hope you enjoy.  :classic:

What a very clever MOC Pellaeon! Not only is it based around a funny pun, but it is well designed. I love the removed grate and the random wires behind. The wall and arch are nicely built too! I really like small, thoughtful vignettes like this one!

Nice work, and I hope to see more creative dioramas from you in the future!

Very cool MOC.  The walls and door way is really well done.  Very much like what you see in the movies.  And the play on the mouse droid is very clever and funny.

Very clever :laugh:. I like all the details such as the power cables behind the removed grate. Just curious, what have you built the wall plating out of?

Really like the rodent infestation joke too, but it was the arch that really grabbed my eye from the outset. Nice job!!!!

Great idea, and of course, great exocution! The grids for the vents are great and I love how you specifically made the grey arch half-dooorway!

A clever idea indeed! Great job!  :tongue:

Thanks for all the complements folks, I'm glad you enjoyed it. :classic: The one thing I haven't decided about is whether the mouse droids are a legitimate infestation, or if Tarkin's angry expression is because his technicians are morons. :laugh:

The wall pieces are "Brick, Modified 2 x 2 x 6 with Groove", which is typically appears in castle sets for mounting a portcullis.
