I've attempted to create a simple scene of Luke inside the Wampa cave. I didn't include the Wampa for two reasons.
The first being I don't own one, and the second being that I couldn't really fit him in if I did have him.
The emphasis here is on Luke, not the wampa.

Sweet! I can't spot any studs, which is always a win for a stud hater like me.  :laugh: The second shot is cool too, the darkness of the cave opposite the sun coming trough.  :thumbup:

May I ask how you have Hoth Luke but no Wampa?
BTW, It's much better than mine.

It's a great cave.  I won't throw around perfect like everyone has been doing, because it is very loosely based on the shots from the film, but it's a very nice cave given the small dimensions.  I like the lighting as well.

Talking about being smart...  :wink: :laugh:

About the second pic, if you are ever get your hands on a wampa, maybe you could make it's shadow coming out of the cave?

Wow.  You really did a great job with the angels and the snow stuff here. :thumbup: I really like how the while MOC is at an angle.

Thanks!
I apologize for making a scene already made for the build.
It wasn't untill I was finished that I noticed one had already been made.  :blush:

EDIT: Oh, and I only have the Hoth Luke because I got him off ebay.

I found it would be too awkward looking if I attempted something like that.
Not enough room beneath the hilt in the base of the creation. I would've had to restructure the entire build.  :sceptic:

I wouldn't say it was loosely based on shots from the film. I tried pretty hard to get the right angles going, using shots like this as a reference. I did some take liberties, yes, but I attempted to make a faithful and accurate rendition in vignette form.

This is a pretty cool MOC.  The simplicity with the pure white bricks works great.  The lighting always is a big plus that I've never tried to work with.  Maybe someday.  Nice job!
