  1. Minimalism! It's employed by TLG often in cheaper, lower piece point sets and especially when dealing with Star Wars locales. I present today a draft of a Lothal market as I think it is the among the least likely of locations that TLG would offer at retail... and include some sweet Star Wars fruit as well. Here's a wishlist of other Lothal locations, some I may attempt later: Old Jho's Pit Stop Lothal Captial (street, alley scene?) Stormtrooper training facility Tarkintown Ezra's Tower Communications Tower In this MOC I'm using standard yellow for the ground of Lothal and I feel I must defend this choice by pointing out that Tattooine is pretty firmly established on our shelves as tan. Additionally, we're looking at a new planet in Episode 7 (Jekku) that looks identical to Tattooine - tan. Therefore I think Lothal should be built in the most distinctive color possible; leading yellow to be the only readily available color lying about (maybe light brown would be better?) I need to mine for more yellow so at the moment the playset is just 3 small scenes on plates and a Lothal hill, seemingly everywhere on that planet. This project was originally just about making Lego Star Wars fruit. A common fruit found in the Star Wars universe is Jogan fruit, seen in both Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. It's palm sized with wavy purple and white lines so I figured that 1x1 white and dark purple round studs might do the trick. In barrels or boxes they look a bit more convincing. It will give your imperial troops something to bully innocent vendors over at least... plus you could send some droids to pick some up for Jogan Fruitcake. ;) The meiloorun fruit was a bit harder to determine size and color. It needed to be a bit larger than the jogan. At first I had yellow+yellow+orange but reviewing Fighter Flight again I noticed the bottom end is dark pink. But! - I only had round light pink round studs lying about. So with a small green tip at the top, I settled on lightgree+yellow+orange... for now. If anyone else has a better solution to this fruit, please post it! . It almost seems like the Imperials - the galactic ruling class - have no problem acquiring vast quantities of meiloorun fruit on Lothal... a planet thought unlikely to have any at all! Just another example of the inequality in the Star Wars universe. ;) Both of these vendor stalls have adjustable awnings overheard. In the show there is a collapsing brace for the awnings that I could not reconcile with technic pieces.. yet. So for now just a pole and anchor keep the vendor spots shaded. The planet Lothal... is a pretty dull place overall. Some exciting action takes place here but besides maybe some Loth Cats there isn't too much in the terrain that makes it stand out as a Star Wars locale (giant mushrooms on Felucia, for example). Hills and grass seemed to be the only defining elements of the terrain. As such, a tan blob of a hill is placed next to the market for atmosphere. Additionally, a small patch of grass and... what's this? A box of T-7 Ion Disruptors? Zeb isn't gonna like that. With a couple of walkers you could re-create Droids in Distress... surely we'll be seeing a Vizago someday. Finally, I added a custom MOC of a figure we very likely aren't going to see: Taskmaster Grint. In my opinion, the Imperial Officer that comes in the Inquisitor's TIE set is supposed to look a bit like Arseko... sunken eyes and gaunt complexion. So he will need a Grint to pose together with! I will swap out the proper uniform color later. The "unshaven" head I raided from a Lone Ranger set... either the stagecoach or the train, can't remember. But the look on his face is pretty close to the one in Spark of Rebellion when he harasses the jogan vendor. "Loth scum!" I hope others try making Lothal environments. I am experiencing a shortage of spare pieces for projects like this so I had to go 'full minimal.' However TLG has surprised with nice little scenes like this one from time to time and this one would only have a $20-25 price point. For wherever season 2 takes us, the first season of this show will always be set on Lothal so it's nice to get some representation on the shelf.

    WIP - Old Town Center

    UPDATE FEBRUARY 3rd Second version of my Dairy Shop! I made it more sturdy, and converted it into a modular. The roof was changed and a cellar at water level was added. The dairy and cheese shop is run by Cam and Bert (... get it? Cam and Bert? Camembert?), who also live above their shop... seeing as nobody else wanted to live above that, erm, "aromatic" place. The shop has a large cellar where cheese is made. A waterwheel powers the butter-churn. Outside the shop a lot of wares are displayed; a variety of cheese, milk, cream, eggs etc. The home upstairs has a living/kitchen, toilet, and a bedroom with ensuite in the attic.

I wanted the building to be a little brother to my green grocer, using dark colors instead of the lighter shades I used in my green grocer. I used mostly dark blue, shades of brown and gray. The ground floor consist of the shop, with an office in the addition at the back. There’s a gate to the side for the delivery of supplies. On the right side is the entrance to the home above. The stoop to the front door is littered with potted plants and flowers. Below the shop is a basement where the fish is prepared, gutted, smoked and stored. The wharf assures a constant stream of fresh fish, sold by local fishermen to the fishmonger. Above the shop is a little home, with 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bath and a livingroom with open kitchen.

The design of the Mill is based on a Dutch 'Standerdmolen' (meaning literally "Mill on a stand") The top part of the mill can turn to face the wind, and of course the sails can turn too. Speaking of sails… seems like the miller's son has gotten himself in some trouble O_o Baker's Mill by Ben van Middendorp, on Flickr Baker's Mill by Ben van Middendorp, on Flickr Baker's Mill by Ben van Middendorp, on Flickr There's a little dock at the river where wheat and flour can be transported. Baker's Mill by Ben van Middendorp, on Flickr There's also a little chicken coop and some beehives for fresh ingredients for the baker's baked goodies ^_^ Baker's Mill by Ben van Middendorp, on Flickr Baker's Mill by Ben van Middendorp, on Flickr ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ UPDATE! 29 june Just finished another little part of my old town center ^_^ This is the tobacco shop of Chester Field, the little neighbor to Miss Clementine's Green Grocer. Tobacco Shop by Ben van Middendorp, on Flickr It sells tobacco products, newspapers and magazines and some office supplies. And there's a gumballmachine outside. At the back, one of Chester Field's trusted suppliers; Ziggy Rett, is about to unload a boatload of new merchandise straight into the cellar of the shop. Tobacco Shop by Ben van Middendorp, on Flickr Tobacco Shop by Ben van Middendorp, on Flickr Tobacco Shop by Ben van Middendorp, on Flickr --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Another part of my Old Town Center is done! It's a Green Grocer, situated next to the water (river) and bridge. Its architecture is based on old Dutch, German and Flemish buildings, with a big dose of my favorite artist; Anton Pieck. The building has a cellar (stock room), a shop on the ground floor, and an apartment. There's also a little extension at the back. There's a pump outside, between the front door of the apartment and the bridge. The shop displays a variety of food stuffs outside. The ugly black mess around the base hides some even uglier scaffolding. None of this will be visible as I build more around this part of the Town Center. Miss Clementine greets her customers buying her fresh produce. Outside she has apples, pineapples, strawberries, bananas, cherries, pumpkins, chilies, juice and more on display. There's garlic hanging next to the door, doubling as a vampire repellant ^_^ Mr. Jonah Gold brings a fresh batch of bright red apples, straight from his farm! Artie Choke, the stock clerk, comes out to help him unload. Around back is the old little wharf, where produce can be brought by boat, straight into the cellar. Hope you all enjoyed! Thanks! ^_^
