I'm convinced that ACPin is a robot from the future with super MOC building skills programmed in to hjis supercompter brain by all the greatest AFOLs.

Seriously, you're MOC's look like TLG made them to advertise the set and movie.  I take that back, these are better than the displays that LEGO usually does.


Superb as always, I love it!

ACPin all I can say is that this is really good, especially the little details around the windows and the rocks just below the railings. Now all you need to do is make an equally smooth and accurate bongo - the set looks really out of place with the building and the water.

Just keep on bricking, I say! This build illustrates the reason why I also do other themes cause you never know when you need some buildings. The Bongo is the system set unmodified.

So you did notice those details. That thought crossed my mind after going through the final pics.

Most of the roof tops in Theed were sand green (HP) and those new pieces from the PoP sets were just right. Yes, the Bongo is the unmod set.

Superb, although such a beautiful environment probably deserves better than the clunky 1999 Gungan sub.....

Great use of Harry Potter roof parts on the buildings, and I love the craggy shoreline using BURPs - it just looks stunning overall.

Great job !

I love the whole scene the houses look great and the railing fits the Naboo look perfectly. The waves don't look quite right they are too scarce/too large. Also I never liked the 1999 bongo design, it would have looked better if you used a custom bongo design (which are by no means easy to make.) Overall a stunning design of a iconic scene. :thumbup:

Yeah, that's what I felt about the sub after going through the final pics.

Had the BURPs (LURPs) sunk by two studs and splashed by the waves to cover them up.

Doh! It seems my guess was only off by one or two scenes! :tongue: Oh well. Great work again, ACPin! Loving the detail on those buildings and the overall smoothness of it! It's one of those dioramas where I feel a great urge to bust out some minifigs and recreate my favorite scenes from the movies and Battlefront II in it. :grin: However, I do have to agree with the others that the Bongo (which wasn't a very good set to begin with) looks quite ugly in this beautiful scenery. It was honorable of you to leave it unmodified, but it just doesn't work visually. :sceptic:

Now make another MOC! Another! ANOTHER! Posted Image

:tongue:
