Bespin Corridor Duel

This is my entry for the ESB Community build.

I've always loved this scene and I was determined to have a go at re-creating it!

I know that my Luke isn't the correct version and the wall colours aren't 100% correct, but I'm fairly limited for parts and 'Pick a brick' didn't have any dark red upslopes. I used four sets of the standard Technic LEDS to illuminate it. Maximum dimensions are 26 x 25 studs, now slightly modified from previous photos. Anyway, C & C welcome (but please be nice as it's my first attempt!)

From what I can see from the images it looks great Lobot, nice cramped conditions and Bespin lighting :thumbup:.

I really like the hallway Vader is standing in. :thumbup: And does Luke have gray hair? :wacko:

Thanks everyone for the nice comments, I'll try & sort out a Flickr account before the next Community Build!  :classic:

This must be the LEDs affecting the colours, I didn't notice it before you mentioned it  :blush:     Luke's hair is actually blonde; I borrowed it from the Luke in '7110 Landspeeder' - I know it's not perfect but it was the best I had!

Even with limited pieces, this is very nicely done! :thumbup: As other have stated, the lighting definately captures the look and mood of the film.  I'd like to see more pics, though.  It's actually easier to post pics on here from a Brickshelf account rather than Flickr FYI. :classic:

Thanks to everyone for the very positive comments, and a big thanks to M<0><0<DSWIM for the Brickshelf suggestion!  :thumbup:  :classic:

I've slightly modified the original design & added some better pictures.  I need to get some more 2x2 grey tiles for my episode VI build, which is going to be along similar lines :wink:

I also like scenes from Cloud City as it's a very unique place. Your corridor provides the right lightning and industrial facility details. Nicely done. :classic:

No need because it's very nice little scene you've created there. The second image picturing Vader in the corridor is my personal favourite  :thumbup: .
