Hi, :classic:
do you know this LEGO set? :classic:

Posted Image

I think that is one of LEGOs best small sets. Unfortunately I don't have it, so I thougt "if I don't have it -than I want to brick it". First it was only Darth Vader and the table. I thougt "yes that is nice, but maybe it will be better if I build a wall around the table." And after the wall came the computer. As I was finished with the last robot I thougt "so, now is enough and that is the output of my brickingfever:

The complete Darth Vader Transformation. :vader:
Have Fun!

Edit: Nevermind, everything resized. Looks great! I really like the computer panels and the Shock troopers are some of my favorite figs ever made by lego! :vader:

Ow!! My broadband hurts!  Please resize your pictures.

Otherwise, nice!  :thumbup:  I like the octagonal structure, and the use of cabling and other greebles.  Not sure what the Series 1 robot is doing there, though... :blush:

If you did something similar in black, it would make a nice carbon freeze chamber.

Truly a great MOC Elander :thumbup:
I especially like the robot :wub:
This is more than picture heavy - could you please resize the pics for us?

Nice job, Elander. I love how you incorporated the mechanism from the Theta shuttle. Keep 'em coming!

I like it. Excellent detail with the controls/ monitors using printed and stickered pieces, great usage of hoses and tiles for the ground, and a nice touch creating new custom medical droids to go along; not to mention the great playability coming along with it, you could recreate the whole movie scene. Nice job!

It was a blessing in disguise that you weren't able to get the original set, since you wouldn't have done this excellent Vader Transformation MOC. :wink: You pretty much corrected everything flawed in the official set, making it a large build with highly-detailed mechanistic surroundings. Great job Elander! :thumbup:

That's quite accurate!  You executed the round walls very well too. I also like how you've expanded on the rather dark room from the movie. :thumbup:

Ok wow, I'm on my phone so I only see one picture at a time and when I saw the first pc I said ok, he's going to create something similar.

You did not you created the entire room and blew away the LEGO version.  Spectacular!
