Hello,

Here's the second part of my Death Star inspired by the Kenner Micro Collection model: the Compactor.
The first part, the Death Star Escape is here:

As first time here's a link to see some pics of the original toys:

I quite concur :thumbup:. This is so much better than the original toy BaronSat.

Great job, Baronsat!  I especially like the snot lighting on the back of the elevator shaft.

Wow, this makes me wish I was a kid again, because this just kicks 'the behind' as a playset.
Beautiful rendition BaronSat!

(off topic: Well, 'a.s.s.' = megablocks, interesting censorship of words, so I went for 'the behind'. I thought this was a 18over forum, but I guess political correctness is taking over the world, or someone is just having fun :laugh:, really doesn't matter anyway!)

That looks great, I love the bits of yellow, they just look right. I appreciate the minifig sized walls and whatnot, it makes it look very believable.

Nice work BaronSat

Great job!  This goes very nicely with your previous Death Star MOC.  If only TLG would give us playsets this good!

That is incredible!  Good job.  The detailing is brilliant.  I seem to remember playing with the original ( or something like it) all those years ago.

I love it! Incredible. As a fan of the Micro Collection and a fan of Lego this is right up my Alley. Any chance you might do the Hoth Micro Collection someday?

The original toy is 30 years old but still going strong in my opinion.

Thanks. I get the idea from Mr ACPin. Don't know if he create the process or get the idea from some other builder (???) but it works fine here. So thanks Mr ACPin  :wink:

If you're reading this and buy Lego boxes regularly, that means you're still a kid... like all of us  :laugh:

Thanks. Yes not all of us have tons of brick to build a complete Death Star so this Kenner's concept is very efficient in this case.

Thanks. I'm sure builders at TLC would love too but they have to build models at affordable prices. Poor guys...  :laugh:

Thanks. I'm not surprised it's the first one you see as the Kenner Micro Collection is really vintage and not very popular back in the days. Now things are a bit different because the scale is the same than the one of the SW Miniatures game!

Another jawdropping remake from you. :stunned:

Nice work as usual BaronSat - I wonder though, do you display these models in official places or at events?

No these models are just on display in my home, but you must know that in the city where I live there are no shops (toyshop, game shop, comic shop) interested in displaying my models.
Generally when I show some pics of my models to people from these shops, they just say : "Oh, yes, not bad". A reaction that is so different from the ones I got here or on others forums, that it's very funny.  :laugh:
As for events, I have so far involved only small local exhibitions some times ago.

Do you live in Paris to get so un-excited reactions ?

I really love the snot building here, it renders perfectly that death star feeling I had by watching ep IV as a kid. Everything is shiny  :wub_drool:

This is a great MOC of one of my Favorite toys as a child, the only thing your missing is that terrible foam they used for the trash  :classic:

GREAT WORK!!!

Thanks.

One more Micro Collection fan, we should unite and ask Hasbro to resurrect that Kenner line in modern vintage boxes...

Yes, I voluntarily forgot to put the orange foam, too ugly and I wanted to show the compactor interior.
