Very nice. Sneaky how you made Chewbacca seem taller with that camera angle.
Sneaky, yes but that's not the camera angle!
Chewbacca is actually two plates taller and the mouse droid was placed there to disguise the added height!

Nice job, ACPin. The one nitpick I would have is that for some reason it looks like the hallway is too...busy. Like there's too many minifigs or something. I can't put my finger on it.
If you look at the middle pic for the set-up, there are not that many minifigs. However, the placement of the minifigs was deliberate to show across which is why it seems too busy.

Another great MOC AC! I love all of the little details, mainly the design on the walls, very lovely! Like Brickdoctor though, I also feel that the hallway is a little too crowded, maybe take some of the officers out? Keep up the great work!
Initially thought of shooting two separate scenes but too time consuming for just the same structure. Not doing any reshoot either.

I think its that the hallway is too narrow, causing the busy look.
All the same fantastic work AC, all the little details are great.
The hallway is scaled correctly from the movie scene, read comments above about the busy look.

Great job as usual, ACPin! Good to see you working on OT pieces.
I think the crowdedness culprit is more of a lighting problem than a structural one. With all the movie accurate dark colors, the light needs to be brighter to compensate. But I'm probably wrong.
Lighting this was another problem as I couldn't get the right mix for a pic from the outside looking in and have the correct exposure. That's why I settled for separate pics for the outside and inside features. Added to the fact of black on black compounded the issue.

Excellent work once again AC! Lots of interesting details, particularly the reverse build of the ceiling and the trans-blue plates that allow the effective overheard lighting for the interior shot. Another neat detail is the vertical 'light' thingys on the wall. Impressive work as always!
I've done the reverse build for the ceiling in a previous MOC
and those trans-blue did help alleviate the internal lighting problem. Only wish I had trans-clear instead of trans-blue, though I must admit those panels have been reused from another MOC
