Despite being slow and antiquated by galactic standards,
each facility boasted hundreds of conveyor belts and robot assembly arms,
capable of creating thousands of droids per day from scratch.

Another excellent creation AC! Very reminiscent of the AoTC movie scene. As always, the details are very accurate and it's nice to see you used the correct color for the BDs and you've found an effective use for those huge curved pieces. :thumbup:

Great job, ACPin. Love the use of the skate park curved pieces. And I envy your collection of Geonosis B1s.

All the hectic activity and machinery is captured very well here, and the colors also represent the mood nicely. It's also neat to see the different designs of each machine. Amazing detail here.

Wish I had more of those Geonosian BDs and would have made it to at least a 48x48 footprint. Those curved walls were meant to be on both sides but would have obscured the view for taking pics so the other wall was dropped.

Only color that should have been different were the yellow grabbers but didn't have those pieces in another color.

That's what I tried to figure out and settled for the grabber with the BD head.

Same here- the 3P0 humour in Ep.2 was that punny, tounge in cheek sort that has yet to being close to mastered by TCW.

Incredible job yet again ACPin! Any chance we'll see a larger scale version?

I agree, that was one of the better 3P0 scenes of the PT.

All the scenes on Geonosis were better than most of the PT. And to add to it, it's a very disticnt location. Perhaps ACPin would be willing to do with Geonosis what he did with Naboo Posted Image Posted Image

That's awesome ACPin, I like how you did the robot arms, and without watching the movie to do an exact comparison, this indirectly immediately reminds me potc that scene.

Stupendous work!

Excellent MOC! I'm not sure about yellow, though. As far as I know, all the yellow parts can be replaced with dark gray or dark bluish gray.

Yes, now I remember when I got those on clearance sales. This could have been done in a larger baseplate if I had more of the sand-red BDs.

Don't know if anybody else noticed that the conveyor belt that the droids are on actually slides through.  :sweet:

That's the general idea about this scene though some lower background details are obscured from the main pic but can also be seen fromthe other pics provided in the link.

That remains to be seen and maybe if somebody's willing to donate more geonosians and sand-red BDs.  :grin:

Tried to incorporate most of the details within the actual movie scene, only thing missing was the placement of the droid heads where the grabbers took them.

Never too late to start something new and these factories have a whole lot going on that you can make an MOC for.  :wink:

The arms are fragile and not meant to be played with, though you could slide the conveyor belt from one end to the other.  :laugh:
