Let me be the first on congratulating you for building these awesome vignettes! Truly an accurate representation of ANH. I bought Luke's Landspeeder two weeks ago and I watched the first three twice since then.

The Princess Leia vignette is my favorite, although Darth Vader boarding the cruiser is quite amazing too.

Excellent work.

I see some rebels slacking off on their job...  :grin:
Great work representing these iconic scenes. The detail work in the vignette with Leia and R2 does a great job of depicting the Tantive IV interior. Also, nice job on the minifig placement for the Tantive IV boarding vignette. It'd be great to see more vignettes from you based on the movies  :thumbup:

Ehh, I've thought that these works of yours weren't always the best. If you look at the original shots, you can see some of the inaccuracies.

Some of the bigger dioramas actually started as small vignettes like these. Though I wasn't able to follow through with a bigger Tantive IV dio at that time which should have incorporated the first three. Maybe next time...

Wow what a nice collection of vignettes 'ACPin'! Great works once again. :thumbup: Among the four, I particularly love the Princess Leia vig, the 'dark secretive' lighting really captures the scene from the movie.

Brilliant.  I love how authentic they look.  They are so accurate, it could be a set in themselves.   I love seeing your work.

Sorry, but really they are not too accurate. Actually look at some of the sots and you will see.

I think they are accurate for lego. It is impossible to get it perfect and these are as close to it was perfect. I also would not say that some of his past works were 'bad', I thought they were good but thats only my opinion.

Had to dim the lights for that vig but just enough to illuminate and cast the shadow of the grilled plates on the floor.

That was a general idea for these to have them simple enough to be an actual set.

Everybody has to start somewhere and I'm the first to admit that with my older MOCs that they were bad because they're not as good as the current works.

Your initial responses were at most amusing and I kinda played along. But now you're irritating as you're trying to interject on others' responses as well.  :hmpf_bad:

What exactly is your agenda/problem? Also wont' you show us some of your more accurate works!  :angry:
