Using Jedi mind tricks, Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi distracts the stormtroopers guarding the tractor beam controls. Ben moves around the tractor beam disengaging the controls, watching the stormtroopers as they turn their backs to him. With the help of the Force, Ben deftly slips past the troopers and into the main hallway.

Commentary:
Two 8x16 dark gray bricks were used as base footprint and there's no overhang whatsoever from top to bottom. One week to complete and lots of pics taken which took a lot longer to go through for the final set. As with the other two entries, I've kept the design and build true to the scenes, no gimmicks necessary.

Here's a reference pic that I found for this scene.  

Like the Medium entry, this is the final version. Comments and suggestions are welcomed but I won't be making anymore changes as I've got to complete the Large scene.

Enjoy viewing more pics here or by clicking on any pic above before posting your comments. I'd also appreciate if you mention what details you liked about it or not.

That's a great entry, good job once again ACPin! Posted Image Though the scene is not as popular as the others, the clever build of the double-floor generator makes up for it. Good luck in the competition!

That's a very good rendition of the scene.

How stable is the column? It looks like it has plenty of weight to support.

I like the reactor box as it hasnt been over-greebled and reflects the design of the original trilogy.

Good choice of a blue background too.

Great entry, very faithful to the movie scene !

how is the bottom of the generator made ? Is that silver thing one piece?

Good job! I seriously love how you put so much detail in a MOC, large or small. It really looks nice with greebles and tiles mixed.

The no height limitation made it all doable.

Very stable indeed as there are technic pins in the middle to add support. This scene evokes a retro-style for simplicity and didn't require much greebles.

That's a secret for you to figure out! :wink: Yes, it is one piece which I've used in other MOCs.

Don't worry, I do not care at all about my medium entry. I think my small entry is good enough, but seeing as you are entering a large, I'll have to look hard at it!

I'll be honest, ACPin- this is one of the few models of your I don't like. It's too blocky, doesn't have enough control, and has too many wires. I'm sorry.

Why enter at all if you don't care about your entry?

You're entitled to your own opinion. If you're referring to the control generator as too blocky, then consider the fact that this is a very small footprint to work with. There are only two wires, so I don't know why you say there are too many of them. Maybe you ought to show me someday what you come up with your own version of this scene.  :devil:

I think her thought the bars were wires.

Anyways, I've always thought that your Tantive IV scenes weren't that great, so I made them myself! :sweet: I think that they are at least superior in accuracy.
