That is one of the most impressive MOCs I've seen to date. Just looking at it reminds me of the Conveyor Belt theme. I love all the wiring that went into it. Well done ACpin, well done.

Cool, but I think Anikan and Padme are getting "bugged".
Love star wars lego creations! Working on my biggest moc ever! Live to love, live to moc! Love ! points! Happy to play as the weird looking chef in Sandys Escape from Island Paradisa.

Very well done, ACPin. Use of hailfire droid wheels is perfect.

Only thing is I seem to remember Anakin's lightsaber is still blue during this scene. :look:

I'm pretty sure your right- he only gets the green lightsaber after a Jedi passes it to him in Arena.

Yeah, but his lightsaber gets chopped in half while he's pinned to the piece of metal lying down, so since he's standing up with a lightsaber, that lightsaber should be blue.

This time designed the machinery to be functionally believable.

The hailfire droid wheels were also in the old MOC and they've been retained for this MOC. Though found it a bit tougher to get them positioned correctly due to their weight and bulkiness.

Yes, it was blue but didn't want to redo the pics as it was too much work!  :wink:

Kinda thought about doing that particular scene where Anakin's arm was trapped but wasn't satisfied with the result.

PS. Remember that there are far more detailed pics from varying angles in the links provided like this and this.

Maybe by 2004 MOC standards but this works for today's standards!  :laugh:

See previous comments about the lightsaber. Never really gave it much thought as the Anakin minifig already had the lightsaber in hand when placed in the scene.

Wow, it's finally great to see the 2011 version of your Geonosis Droid Factory, and what a marvelous upgrade this is from your 2004 one. Excellent use of those humongous wheel piece. Great job as always AC! :thumbup:

Design wise picked specific scenes from the movie and built around them.

Those really fit in quite nicely into the scene and that's why I decided to keep them from the old MOC.

Not an upgrade but a full makeover since the design started from scratch and doesn't really resemble the old MOC. Only parts were used from the old MOC and those wheel pieces were the best from it. Still debating on which MOC path to choose next...

Somebody from the past reminded me of an old action figure diorama that I did way back for the same theme. If you look closely, the molten metal on the conveyor belt are actually Lego tiles (photoshopped glow effect).

Sorry but the resolution is not of good quality...

Hey AC Pin! Great to see a familiar face since I'm really new here. I really like this one and prefer it to your earlier droid factory diorama, mainly because this depicts Anakin and Padme on the conveyor belt - the scene that immediately comes to mind when one thinks "Geonosian droid factory". The thing about a lot of your work that makes it so good is that they're not so much dioramas or vignettes as environments and atmospheres, but each with tremendous attention to detail. I like the droid fabrication "moulds", and each of the stamp gantries complete with spring mechanism. However, with a creation like this one, a lot seems to be happening at once, and it's hard to draw the focus to just Anakin and Padme - but this is a good problem to have.

Welcome to EB and you've essentially described what I wanted to convey in this scene. Of course in the movie, the action between the two alternates so kinda merged the scenes for both.

Don't know if you've seen the other works, but you're more than welcome to view them when you got time.
