Just another day through the hallway of the Death Star
where various Imperial troopers go about their business of carrying out orders.

Very nice.  Sneaky how you made Chewbacca seem taller with that camera angle.

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.

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!  :thumbup:

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.  :thumbup:

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.

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! :thumbup:

Sneaky, yes but that's not the camera angle! :oh: Chewbacca is actually two plates taller and the mouse droid was placed there to disguise the added height! :laugh:

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.

Initially thought of shooting two separate scenes but too time consuming for just the same structure. Not doing any reshoot either. :grin:

The hallway is scaled correctly from the movie scene, read comments above about the busy look.

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.

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.

Nothing like going back to the OT scenes as there's quite a number of them that I've always wanted to do. It looked odd to see Chewie as the same height of the rest and changing the camera angle wasn't good enough. So what better way to give him some added boost!  :laugh: More to come...

Nicely done again ACPin. You know- I actually like the busyness- it looks fitting for a deadly superweapon/station. Can't wait for those future OT MOCs...

That's great ACPin! The mouse droid is good and the detail is amazing! I like the wall technique to get the classic style, nice roof design also. I wish I had that many Officers... :devil:

A great MOC, you should build an entire death star interior.

As mentioned in previous responses, the separate scenes were done as one so it looked more crowded than it was meant to be. Already working on the next one...  :grin:

The mouse droid is built like the official one except the black bricks were changed to gray so that it would show more prominently.

Great work. It almost looks as though you've just copied a frame from the movie itself, but it's in Lego.

It's always good to have reference pics to work with and in this case the screen caps from the movie.
