Like last year we (The Dutch Moonbase team) were asked by Hein-Jan Kemperman from The Little Arms Shop to help in building new MOC's for the Star Wars Event in june 2011 in Legoland Germany.
This year was a particular challange because we had to build all new MOC's as last years MOC'S were taken down.

Sky4walker (Mike van Leeuwen) started on a large scale build of Tatooine where several scenes from the 6 movies were depicted. After 4 months of hardcore building he ended up with a 7 x 1.8 meter layout.
I started on a build that started as a joke. On Legoworld 2010 in Zwolle (NL) I was challenged by Mike and Hein-Jan to build a 10 meter long trench from the film A New Hope. Well, I accepted ...

It took me 3 month of building to complete a 6 x 1.2 meter trench including X-wing's, Tie fighters and Y-wings. All build to a 2/3 minifig scale. Tricky but it worked.
It wasn't 10 meters long but I was out of parts, baseplates and space in my hobby-room.

Other MOC"s were the enormous and highly detailed Droid Factory by a German builder, a hangar with ships from Mike's son Mitchel and a scene by Hein-Jan with the Millenium Falcon.

The event stared sad as Hein-Jan's father pasted away the first day the guys were in Gunzburg. Hein-Jan returned to Holland and Mike started alone with setting up the tent with the help of some young ladies from the park.
The event was a great succes. Just have a look at the pictures and our WEBSITE as pictures talk louder than words.

Simply an outstanding collaborative display! The sheer size of the builds and the highly-detailed nature of each are extremely impressive. My hats off to all of you who had a hand on these creations (and thanks for sharing this legopapa). :thumbup:

OMG! The Tatooine is huge! Looking at Luke's home, u can see the thickness (i.e. number) of bricks used to create the diferent levels!

The walls of the Death Star is just as amazing!

OMG! Absolutely amazing! There's a lot of great stuff on EB, but sometimes you see MOCs, like these, that just blow you away.

Note to self: buy a lot more tan bricks. A helluva lot more...

Oh my god! Not only are those wonderful layouts absolutely enormous, but must have cost a fortune in bricks. Not to mention the time (I'd imagine that doing that desert got pretty tedious)- but what a result!

Love the Death Star scene.

Wow! I really like the amount of detail in the Death Star trench, and the Tatooine landscape is amazing!  The builders really did a great job of working in different scales!   :sweet:
