Snow in Cloud City! The large clouds roll in with them bring a fresh blanket of snow. As temperatures drop, Lando invites his friends for a day of fun by a frozen pool of water. But despite the frolicking, the uninvited Darth Vader and Boba Fett are determined to make use of the opportunity...

Overview:

Here's the vignette. Yes, that's real ice!

"Frozen" In Carbonite:
Posted Image
Since the city is closed down, Vader doesn't have access to the carbonite machine. His solution? Drop Solo into the ice and freeze him that way!

Chewy and Leia:
Posted Image
Chewy returns to the ground after snowboarding.

Luke and R2:

Luke uses a special lightsaber-attachment to fish under the ice. R2 cooks the fish he catches for all to enjoy.

Lando's Hot Cocoa Shack:
Posted Image
Meanwhile, Lando's hot cocoa shop provides refreshment for humans and droids alike.

Too see a picture of what the "base" that goes in the freezer looks like, click here.

Happy New Year, and good luck to all!

Hilarious and certainly in the Christmas Spirit.
Great incorporation of non-LEGO elements (ice) :thumbup:
- not sure wether that should be rated clone brands or not :laugh:
Best of luck.

Very clever Idea, very original, I like it a lot. It's somewhat random, hence you're my secound, as I'm a SW purest freak. But I cannot leave your amazing creation un-noticed. Well done, You get one of my points  :thumbup:
