This is a build inspired by someone else's MOC. Thanks for the great build, LegoLogical. The video of his build is a LOT nicer - I'm just riffing with my spare parts here. Although the Canto Bight story line from The Last Jedi surprisingly doesn't involve gambling - I'm sure TLG is going to give us a scene from this planet eventually. Likely the falthier escape instead of this casino. Once I saw this MOC I thought it was the perfect size for this location and I'm a big fan of having every film-centred location in Star Wars represented somewhere on the shelf. Although the story line's merit may be contestable - who doesn't love gambling aliens?? I should point out that this MOC was designed before TLJ Blu Ray's deleted scenes gave us a look at the facade of the casino, which has more wide, pronounced white pillars along the face of the structure and some groovy 1960's masonry. I think the build pairs pretty well with the Resistance Transport 75176, which by itself is kind of a blah display. Wanted to include as much of the casino floor as possible, tried to include the piano / bar / slot machine area, and kind of gave up trying to integrate both the casino and the bar. You see what I have here. At the moment, I'm only displaying the main square casino area on my shelf and I may junk the bar and move the colored glass directly behind my pathetic stand-in for the Master Codebreaker. (He's on a roll, you know.) If I come into a lot more spare parts that favor white, I may try and complete the build. Also, if we get do an official falthier escape set from Lego or perhaps some Canto Bight police speeders, I'll likely revisit the build. And please take a peek at what LegoLogical did - my build really doesn't do his justice. Thanks for looking.
Hello again! Here is my last Western MOC: -------------------GAMBLING HALL --------------------------- Look at the whole building: A few pictures of the sides : When it comes to style building, this time I dont put emphasis on some advanced construction techniques but on a combination of colors. The central part of building is the only a little more technically demanding but with little help of the tiles and turntable plates, it was easy to solve . Several pictures in larger scale plan, details of the facade : Top view: This Western MOC is also done in the spirit of classic Lego sets - opened back side for visitires of exibitions Interior: That"s all folks, I hope you enjoy
Freetraders work hard for their gold, so they have lots of it. But what do freetraders spend their gold on, you ask? Why the holy trinity of booze, women and gambling, of course! Charlatan Bay is a developing freetrader settlement, so while there's booze, other forms of entertainment are still in short supply. Many freetraders, independant contractors, information merchants and other good citizens of the settlement flock to this little gaming house, at all hours of the day, to indulge in one of life's favourite vices. Which explains why business is always brisk at the Lucky Lamprey.
