Utapau remained neutral, but allegiance was forced upon

the current Master of Port Administration, Tion Medon,

when General Grievous and the Separatist Council took the world as their own,

at the command of Darth Sidious.

The landing platform and additional interior frames to support the previous skeletal frames are essentially done.

Just gotta clear out the background so I can build the whole scene.

This is looking more like an archaelogical dig for the bones of very large vertebrate creatures

to create housing and structures in the sinkhole cities of Utapau.

Next up is the platform to support it and additional interior frames would be needed to prop it up as it is too heavy on its own.

I gotta start somewhere!

Each segment contains at least 60 pieces and will flex as I've used plates from end to end.

I can recall very few Utapau MOCs. Cannot wait to see what you come out with on this one.  :thumbup:

No idea what it is, but I'll keep thinking!  All your MOCs are always amazing, so I can't wait to see this one.

A few guesses:

Dactillion

Or as obscure as the Nos Monster from the deleted scene in ROTS.

Whatever it is, I'm sure it's bound to be awesome so I'll be eagerly awaiting the final product. :sweet:

It's gotta be an Utapau MOC. Can't wait to see it though, it looks great so far!

I'd guess this is part of the landing platform on Utapau, there's a 'skeleton' framework above one of them  :wink: (page 194 of 'Sculpting a Galaxy)

If so, I'll be very interested to see how it turns out; it looks quite an awkward shape to replicate in Lego!

It does help if I read the caption  :cry_sad:

Grievous? That's my guess at the moment, 'cause that's all I can think of.

Goodness. *oh2*  My son is going to go crazy when he sees this completed. The Utapau landing platform is his favorite part of EPIII.

This is starting to look really promising ACPIn (and substantial!) :wub:

I'm really pleased that you've decided to do this, I'm sure that you'll do it justice  

Are you going to tile the floor/platform?

Definitely it will get done by next week so be sure to drop by then.

Not as substantial as I would have liked it to be, but the end of the month is the deadline so the main scene will be done.

Tiling of the platform has been done, so the painstaking part of putting the skeletal frame on the supports has begun.

You had something even bigger in mind initially? I'm pretty impressed by the size of the platform and framework as it is! Glad to see the project is getting along so well, can't wait to see more progress pictures! :sweet:

I wasn't going to comment until you finished it, but I can't help myself.
I really loved the giant bone structures in ROTS, they really gave another 'alien' feel to the film, seeing it built now is fantastic. Besides you'll probably end up doing the entire sinkhole, including the core ship :rofl:.

Originally planned to have the rockwork around it so that it looks like it was jutting out of the sinkhole. But with the deadline looming and not much time to build since I'm in training mode for the NY Marathon, the landing platform will have to do for now.

Who knows, maybe I'll revisit it in the future and complete those too!

Just a couple more days and my stockpile is really getting low on tan/dark tan!

You got me really looking forward to seeing this project completed AC! From what i've seen so far i'm confident that it'll be an awe inspiring build even without the rockwork around it. But like you said, you can always revisit the project in the future and add those parts afterwards. :wink:
