In the weekend of 4/5 september 2010 Legoland Germany was host to a hugh Star Wars Event. Star Wars fans from all over Europe gathered for a weekend of Star Wars madness. 250 uniformed Star Wars fans from 501th regiments all over Europe were present to give the weekend just that magic touch.

Hein-Jan Kemperman from The Little Arms Shop displayed some large scale moc's on request of Legoland Germany.
Early 2010 we (the Dutch Moonbase Crew) were asked by Hein-Jan to add a large part to an allready excisting moc (Clone Wars Assault). And so we did ...

The result is shown below. De standard vehicles (sets) were supplied by the legoshop in the park. The layout is 70 baseplates (10X7). The lightgray buildings are from our hand.
You can read all about the event en see more pictures HERE.

Posted Image How big is that thing?
Absolutely gobsmacking on how much detail and effort went into this. I cannot imagine how long it would take to make this but with that beautiful building and all the little details spread throughout I am sure it was darn expensive.

I would love to see this thing in real life just to see everything up-close because I just can't start to describe it now, I am Speechless.  :classic:

That thing is ginormous! One thing that's odd though, while the battle droids are advancing, a lot of clog troopers are just standing in ranks right close by. Give the prodders to shoot already! :tongue:

Borrowed from Burman: Posted Image WTFOMG!?! That's one hell of a massive SW diorama... At first I thought it was a midi/mini-scale display, until I realized it was MF-scale! I even see my ARC Gunship there. :tongue: Truly excellent job to all those who did that SW diorama. My hats off to all of you guys. :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

So this is bigger than Brickplumber's Hoth, bigger than KimT's Yavin, and bigger than ACPin's Naboo, right?

Holy cow! That's one impressive scene right there! *oh2*
Can't really comment on it, except for the multiple Anis, Obis and Ahsokas and the lack of a real gunfight or troopers in the base itself.

Apart from that this is a masterpiece. :sweet:

What's supposed to be happening in this scene?

CIS and Clones just parading side by side? Are they just ignoring each other?

Like the buildings though!
It's all part of the plan....

One awesome MOC display  :wub:

I agree with what was mentioned before; kinda weird that there is a parade on one side and a battle on the other. But the buildings and scene are so impressive! Very nice touch with the force field.  :cry_happy:

Wow this is truly incredible!!! The skill that has gone into building this is incredible! I love the design of the stairs on the largest building  :wub:
Could I ask, how long did it take you to build this, and around how much did it cost?

Will it be displayed anywhere again?

Thanks for reading,
Batman1±

@Batman1:

I can only say how long the lightgray buildings took to build. The part in the middle (the assault and victory parade) was already build and was only modified in Legoland for a better fit.

Going on the picture displayed in the opening post:

The large building at the back with landingplatform (right of the large building) and powerplant (left of the large building) took about 4 months also because Sky4walker didn't like the construction of the walls of the building so he changed that.
The buildings/towers on the left with the blue windows and all of the buildings in the front took about 2 months to build. I have to admit that I was home a lot more than Sky4walker so I had more time during the day to build.

Note: all the buildings were made modular for easy transport.

The costs?? No idea ...

It will be displayed (if all goes well) only ones more at Legoworld in Zwolle, The Netherlands (oktober 2010).

@R5-N2:

The dome was purpose-made for this moc ...
