During Obi-Wan deactivates the tractor beam from the Death Star. Are our heroes (Han Solo, Luke, Chewy and Princess Leia) caught at the scrap press. That is not good -because they will be squashed after a certain time. Hopefully they can escape from this unpleasant situation. :oh3:

Yep, that was my first attempt to build the scrap press from the Death Star. I hope you will like it.

Have fun!

Dang it actually works?!  That is pretty slick.  You've definitely nailed the shape and the colors, and I really like that it works. :thumbup:

Wow Elander, that is really nice work, the whole piece is fantastic, and the way it's incorporated into a larger structure rather than just the crusher is great. Do the cogs work or are they just detailing?

This is a very impressive build with a lot of great detailing! Can I ask how long it took you to build it?

Oh man, Elander, this is so epic! I love how the walls close straight instead of slanted like 10188.  :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub:

'Elander' you are a genius, it works, so Luke can scream at 3-P0 to tell R2 to stop the compactor ! :grin:
Wonderful detailing, plus plenty of trash....though you know I find it hard to believe it took twenty years to build the Death Star....perhaps the Rebel's controlled the construction union's - a go-slow-policy must have been in place ! :laugh:
Excellent work again 'Elander' and Brick On ! :classic:

Sorry, a picture with all other MOC's is impossible. -Because the bricks from the other buildings are in this building integrated.  :grin:

Certainly most impressive Elander! Giving this build an actual working press scarp mechanism is really quite ingenious, very well done! :thumbup:

I just got my 10188 and I love it for the cute recreations of all the memorable Death Star scenes. Seeing this fantastic piece of art - built to minifig scale really impresses me and brings forth the same loving feelings  :wub:

Keep bricking!  :thumbup:

Excellent MOC. Very detailed and movie-accurate. And it works!
But you do realize that the subtitle reads "Scarp Press", not "Scrap Press"? :laugh:

I love this! The Scrap Press works, unlike some of that I have seen. The detail is superb!
