Well folks, I've just finished (ish) my lastest installment of tatooine. I did plan on making it christmasy and putting it into the raffle, but brickshelf was down. And seeing it doesn't fit any of the catagorys of the current SW contest, I present it as a MOC, which was why I did indeed build it. A triditional circular home. This will take place in my Tatooine setup

Here it goes!

It looks great on the outside but what about the inside? Is it hollow, or is it filled with furniture?
Anyway, I really like how it is round and I think you should put a cloth or something over the door to cover it up during sandstorms :wink: .
Overall it looks great and it should look good with your tatooine setup.

Like Legoman and calebexo01, I am also a christian and proud of it.

It's hollow. I tried to make it as movie accurate as possible. In the movie, the actual house is underground, only the top peice (what I've done) shows. And due to the nature of what I'm doing with my setup, I couldn't make anything 'Underground'

Hence I was left with what is here. As for the cloth, it sounds an intresting idea, but I think I'll leave it, as I'm strictly trying to keep my stuff movie accurate.

One question, is the entrance supposed to be white?

It's really great. I've very jealous becuase I'm going to have a Sandcrawler, the new Landspeeder, and a group of Tuskens. All I need if  the Lars Homestead and some Own and Beru figs. :cry_sad: Sadly I can't try to copy it because I don't have the parts. :sad: It's an excellent MOC. :thumbup:

Nice work on the dome Legoman. It would be cool to see the underground if you ever build it! Also great diorama :thumbup:

Good job! I love it. The only thing I would change is that I would take the white out and put in tan.

Looks really nice, good curvature and the doorway is nice too.
Are you gonna build the main "crater" or at least the crest of it?
Just call me Rob.
