Just received notification that this project Creator Sets: Star Wars Arena Beasts
has been reviewed by the Lego reps and now published in Lego CUUSOO!

Please support if you want these beasts to become real sets.

Posted: June 7, 2012
The Petranaki arena, also known as the Arena of Justice
and commonly referred to as the Geonosian execution arena,
was brought about by both a need for entertainment in the rigid Geonosian society,
and an efficient way of disposing of otherwise resource-draining prisoners.
The most popular attractions used deadly beasts in combat,
resulting in the extinction of some of the more crowd pleasing creatures on Geonosis.

WOW! I wondered how you could afford all of those Genosian warriors but then in the last shot I can see how you got so many, nice technique.

The scene, like all of you builds is epic. So much to look at and so many details, well done Apcin. :thumbup:

That is a simply fantastic MOC. :cry_happy:

The monsters are superbly built, but my favorite part is the texture of the walls. You gave them such a natural look that can be hard to do with LEGO bricks. Excellent work AC. :thumbup:

Impressive work! I like how you made the Geonosians' heads with bricks; they work really well.

All it lacks is an inner corridor with a shadowy figure with a purple lightsabre getting to the tribune. :wink:

Bravo once again AC, another grand spectacle of a build this is, and one of my favorite SW settings too.

I know you have a penchant for "maximizing" your builds, so is there any chance we will we see this particular scene in this arena? (again another personal favorite) :classic:

The little MOC Geonosians are really effective. Are there new Geonosians mixed with the old ones?

This is superb ACPin!   It's one of your best yet; the scale of it is amazing and you must have spent hours on it.  I especially like the custom built Geonosians, they really add to it (and look like wombles...!)

Truly epic work from a Lego Master.  Five star rating  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:

I tried to make them look as organic as possible. There are actually four basic wall units, the other two are almost identical to but mirror images of two from the four basic ones.

The corridor is actually there and Mace is just waiting inside but not shown in any of the pics.

Maraming salamat Kiel!

Haven't planned on another scene yet to make use of the background as I intend to bring this to some shows. One issue I have is the space to accomodate more action in the arena.

Yes, there's a mix of the old and new Geonosians together with the brick-built ones.

The design of the arena essentially was made to be consistent with the earlier smaller MOC and the balcony put together.

It was one of the issues that I had to face when I posted the final teaser pic. How am I going to fill up all the space with just a dozen or so Geonosians?

That's Tagalog which is a local dialect in the Philippines.

Well obviously you should knock down a wall to make room for your MOCs. I've been known to move a book off a shelf myself.
