Hello,

today I built my first Lego Star Wars MOC. You can see princess Leia who gives R2-D2 a recorded holographic message for Obi-Wan inside the Tantive IV at the very beginning of Episode IV.

Very nicely done! As much as I love the huge MOCs, the detail that goes into a small one never fails to amaze me

Welcome to EB, Konze! Good job on your first SW MOC. I really like the wall details.

Nicely set in scene! The starship wall construction also looks good! :classic:

Cheers,

The base is beautiful in its simplicity, and the wall details are perfect.  :thumbup: Welcome to EB!

Ooh I do konze. This is lovely, the wall detailing is great, and the over all design is fantastic.

Great build (And first post). This really is a very iconic scene from Star Wars. The wall details look great.

Wow!  For every Star Wars fan, this instantly reminds them of that classic scene that started an amazing trilogy.  You just recreated that in Lego form and it is wonderful.  Good job.

Very nice indeed!  Wasn't the little holodisk round though (making the new 1x1 round tiles good candidates?) - or course I may be remembering it wrong, in which case ignore me.

Help me Obi-Wan, you're my only hope!

Thank you for your comments, but I have to tell you there is a little mistake. Leia and R2-D2 weren't in a white corridor, they were in a grey/dark/black corridor (which looks very technical). This means that I will make a new one. I hope you appreciate this.

Sorry I can't post a link to a photo, because this is my 2nd entry.

Best regards,

Really simple, cute and effective. A great MOC, and it also shows that MOC's don't ahve to be big to look really good.

Hehe, I'm glad you mentioned this yourself, because I really like this MOC, but I felt I needed to bring this to your attention - and now I don't have to  :tongue:  

Great job and very nice hallway detail - can't wait to see your take on the corridor. Perhaps you can find inspiration here  :wink:

I like it, and I always think it's a good idea to keep think simple in the beginning.

I think this (non Lego) model is a pretty approximation of the scene without getting lost in details. Basically, the whole scene can be reduced to one "room" (part of the corridor and a closed that marks the end of the corridor) with Leia and R2, two corridors (vertical/horizontal) and one passage in a second wall in front of the "room".

I thought she was giving him the Death Star plans, and the recording was done via his external camera (not pre-recorded).  you can see at the end where she hears the stormtroopers coming and cuts it off early.
