Hello Eurobricks community!

I want to announce my new long-term project:

Jabba's Palace


I'm planning to build first of all Jabba's throne room and some rooms around it and of course, the Rancor pit.
I also want to try to incorporate LEDs to create a proper atmosphere and if anyone knows a good seller in the interplay with LEGO bricks please tell me:)
Some parts are already here and others ordered, unfortunaly Tan bricks are expensive but I am confident;)
I already started with the first structures and have attached some pictures of the first arch and the already known Rancor.
Here the first Pictures (don't worry there will be more;)):
Just click on the links (I'm not allowed to use that image extension on this board.)

Updates in the last post!

Hello!

I'm glad and thankful to see you commented:) I also want to apologize for the long building pause I had because of the long wait for my BL orders to come, but, finally I got them and started building immediatly.
The Rancor can open it's mouth and hold almost a hole minifigure in it;) I might be taking a photo shooting of it soon...
Til' now there are not much changes, I started building the palace in intermateable sections so the work is easier and all in all it's more comfortable to transport and build.
Also I have started building Jabba's throne in SNOT technics and the walls of the main audiance chamber has grown;)
Well I will come up with new updates soon but so far here some pictures:

Throne and bow

Archway to Han Solo in carbonite

Entrance to throne room

I'm also sorry for the bad picture quality, I hope to improve that soon^^

C&C welcome,

That looking good mate. I built a Jabba's palace for the ROJ community build, reminds me a lot of mine. I ran out of time and parts but would have loved to put more into it. I'll be watching this build in antisapation.

Thanks again;) I built the Rancor some month ago and it took 500 to 600 pieces I think.

Also thank you;) I think I will buy the new Palace in Summer or at least the figures, maybe I'll get some of the Action figures so I can make some realistic looking customs like Ephant Mon or Ree Yees. Of course there should be the band, Bib Fortuna, Malakili, Oola, Gammorean Guards, Droids and so on...

I hope I awnsered your questions and sorry again for missspellings.

Cheers, Vector

Hello! I'm sorry to double post but I have new updates!

So finally the Bricklink orders arrived so I could build a little more...
The walls are now higher and I have started with the floor and the quests sections on the other side of the throne room.
I'm happy with the project til now but unfortunatly I'm running out of money so I will need to build with the parts I got yet (don't be afraid, I still have enough^^)and I'm glad that I can now start building the rooms beside the throne room and when that is done go on to the Rancor pit.
Here are some pictures:

The throne room with floor
guest section

The holes in the guest section are for the LED's I will buy later on;)

Great Palace! The Rancor looks great, as does the throne room. I really like how you did the corner to the right of Jabba. :thumbup: I look forward to more updates!

The new progress looks good.

Here is my build of the palace. Looking at it again yours is looking to much better than mine. Like I said earlier I would have loved to build mine more like yours but due to parts and time this is what I ended up with.
