After a week of hard work, I finally present my Small Entry- Meeting Yoda. This famous scene from The Empire Strikes Back was Luke's first encounter with the great Jedi Master Yoda. Yoda says some funny and meaningful remarks, and has a comic battle with R2-D2 over a flashlight. In honor of Episode V's anniversary, I gave the scene a go.

Scene Recreation:

Here's a (poorly) Photoshopped recreation of the exact scene as best as I could. The only major difference is that here, Luke is standing. I found it impossible to get him to kneel in a way that looked good and was accurate, so I just stood him up.

Overview:
Posted Image
Here's the entire vignette. It's hard to tell, but the four corner pockets are filled with "bog" water. This didn't turn out exactly how I wanted it, but I'll probably change it later.

Base:
Posted Image
Here's the base of the vignette without Luke's camp and the minifigs. The green jumper is for R2. That curved log took me a ridiculously long time, but ended up looking pretty good in my opinion.

Luke's Camp:
Posted Image
Here's the several parts to Luke's camp. R2's charger is more prominent here than in the movie, but you can see in a few frames that he's plugged into the "lamp". Also note details like Luke's blue food ration tray and the gear box Yoda rummages through.

Top:

There's only a tiny bit of overhang of the trees and the container. Here are moist cotton balls used as fog; this is the other bog method I tried.

Thanks for looking, and good luck to all my fellow competitors!

That's a great entry 'Inky', your week-long hard work seems to have paid off, job well done! Posted Image The vig is instantly recognizable as Dagobah. I also like how the rocks at the corner are tilted at angles - uncommon building technique yet very effective. Good luck in the contest!

Nice entry Inky! I love the details in Lukes camp, as well as the 'plugged in' R2!

Really nice entry Inky!
I like Luke's camp set up you made the look good and using seaweed makes it really look like Dagobah. I think maybe instead of using cotton wool maybe adding some brown and green circle studs so it looks like dirty water.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll look into the bog some more next week.
