Hey all, first MOC in...oh....8 years or so. My entry for the contest, Mos Eisley Astromech Elementary. Not a school for astromech droids...a school ran by them.

Your basic overview shot.  Looks like the first day of school...

Tusken Raider Jr. clearly wants nothing to do with this "school" thing.  The stormtrooper's kid in the background looks a little nervous too.  Note the R2 unit (a pair of them) serving as crossing guards.

Daddy Vader saying bye to Little Vader.  Must be hot under that helmet...

Playground equipment!  Everyone's favorite part of elementary school was recess...including Han and Chewbacca.

Clearly this Gungan has been misinformed about the diet of droid teachers...

See the full gallery here.  Let me know what you think; I need to reacquaint myself with the older generation of AFOLs and meet some of you new guys.

(old Brickshelf account Xcalabur, in case any of you guys remember me from a decade or so ago)

Much thanks! I've kinda been lurking for a few weeks and figured this contest would be a good way to get back into building, and meet some of the current online community.

First off welcome :classic: and welcome back to Lego  :wink:

Sweet build. Nice and clean with the boarder. It feels like a first day at school on Tatooine, kids playing, Tuskin not happy, Jedi on his way to work, very clever. The little speeder look great as well. :thumbup:

Good luck in the comp and hope you get bitten by the bug and keep the builds coming  :laugh:

Thanks!  I noticed that lots of vignettes and scenes nowadays utilize some kind of border, so I'm trying to blend the old style of showing studs and the new style of clean lines and edges.  I think it's fairly successful.
