Hi all!

As some of you might have read in another tread ( ;-) morten) RAS & I are displaying a SW-Moc in the toy shop that we buy from.
We choose the Endor bunker scene because of the release of 7657 AT-ST. This is whats been done so far:

Posted Image
Were limited to the base for the LEGO-displaycase we use -
(it used to be a Duplo-set 4960 Giant Zoo http://www.bricklink...ic.asp?S=4960-1 X-D)

Posted Image
This is where all the small furry hairballs is going to launch the ambush from.
R2-D2 & C-3PO already in place for the decoy manoeuvre :-D!

Posted Image
In front of the bunker its going to be a bit crowded: heroes, stormies/scouts & one more AT-ST.

Any comments are appreciated *sweet* , for example on how many Stormtroopers, rebels etc etc there should be in place.

MOC ON!

It looks pretty good so far. :-) I think that it would look good to add so more green and brown through out the whole creation, and some more plants and stuff.

It looks like a great start! The bunker has a very nice design, but I believe it would look better with a little more light gray. Although it looks so good now, you might not want to continue to mess around with it. The tree would look nicer with some roots and speeder bike would be a very easy and good addition too.

AND, if you want to go all out, an Ewok treehouse would look very cool! It does not have to be big, this small perch is very nice.

Its ment to be the scene where the bad guys surprice the megablocks of the good guys.
Dont recall any ewok treehouses in that scene  :-P

Thanks for the replys so far.
But this is just a start, there will be added some green stuff  ;-)

Hi!

The second half of team RAS/copmike signs in again ;-).

Thanks for the feedback so far *y*.
Sir Dillon - Like RAS said there will be green stuff and a lot more details coming, but thanks for still pointing that out *y*.
oo7 - Youre totally right X-D - no more messing around with the bunker! I also think some different grey -
maybe new dark grey could be used. Next time perhaps ;-). Speederbikes are coming - thanks!
Kahgarak - Thanks!
ImperialJohn - Sizewise the bunkers height is in minifigscala compared to the movies. The problem is the giant AT-ST thats a BIT to big 8-.

This is just the basic layout. The first version had the bunker in the middle of the MOC - which left no room for a hill for Ewoks & droids.
There will be one or two more large trees, a lot of green on the ground with some brown 1x1 tiles to break the colour & speederbikes.
And a little hidden pirate-MOC (did I hear a YES from Phes ;-)?) beneth the Ewoks.

To be continued ...........

It looks sweet 8- . Is that Grand Moff Tarkin fighting for the rebels X-D ? I think it will look even better when there is more green.

Thanks guys for the feedback :'-)!

Brickster - the skeleton is just a little thing for the kids to discover because it will be in a toy shop.
Nothing to do with the rest or ......... could there have been Space Pirats here ages ago ;-)?

Well try to have a new one every 2-3 months in the shop depending how this one gets appreciated.

Ill take some pics from the shop - probably going there wednesday. And I just might get me some new SW-sets X-D!

Nice work there guys *y* . All i could say is that the forest floor could have looked better green and tan mixed together rather than all that gray. But it would have taken alot of plates then.

Oh boy, how did I miss that great MOC from our beloved SW freaks  :-D

Fantastic job you guys like always !! This will definitly go to the SW Index !!

Your hill is superb !! I love the use of those wedges  8-  
And that Bunker is just  *wub*  Do the door actually open ?
Another question regarding your endor Rebels: what torso did you use ? Did you use the torso from that old Speeder bike set (7128) and add grey arms ? Anyhow, they look sweet  *y*

Show us more please !!!

No, thats the problem Han & Leia is trying to fix ;-).
Youre right about the torso - its the Endor Luke torso from 7128:
Endor Luke with grey arms, Kashyyyk Trooper legs & fleshy hands/head.
Well take some pictures from thr store this coming week.

but otherwise, great MOC!

Guys i think youve really nailed that bunker *wub* , it really is great and the adding of the green plus the rebels/troopers has made this a fantastic moc. :-)
