    MOCs: ROTJ Vignettes

    Hi everyone. I don't come around this forum very much anymore since the lack of imagination in the last few Star Wars movies and waves of sets has made me lose interest in the theme a bit. However, when it was announced that one of the categories at Bricks LA 2020 was going to be vignettes based on Return of the Jedi, the first SW movie I ever saw (and the true end of the Skywalker saga as far as I'm concerned), I knew I had to build a few of them. I challenged myself to take a unique approach to each one. So without further ado, here is the first one: It is a microscale recreation of the scene where Jabba in his Sail Barge is planning to feed Luke Skywalker and his friends to the mighty Sarlacc in the Dune Sea on Tatooine as a Bantha passes by. The challenge here was to get as much detail of such a large scene into a 16x16 space. I'm quite happy with how it turned out. Before we continue, I must tell you something about the next vignette: It's a trap! Well, that's the title of it anyway. It's everyone's favorite space admiral during the moment in Return of the Jedi that made him internet-famous. Meanwhile, the Battle of Endor rages behind him. I used forced perspective to get this whole epic scene within a 16x16 vig. I really had to use my head(s) for this one as everything on Ackbar from his eyes and mouth to his hands is made out of minifigure heads. It is this part usage that earned this MOC the first place in the RotJ Vignettes category. The third vignette I built represents the final scene of the movie and Includes real ghosts... sort of As the rebels celebrate their victory over the Empire on the forest moon of Endor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and Anakin appear to Luke as force ghosts. It uses the classic Pepper's Ghost effect to make the force ghosts appear. This is achieved by using Brickstuff lighting and a large trans-clear Lego panel that is at a 45 degree angle to the viewer to reflect the hidden ghost figures. You can see a video of this effect in action here. Here is a peak behind the tree that is hiding the ghost figures to show you how it works. It's a fairly simple trick which I hadn't seen anyone use in a MOC before. Well, that's it. I hope you enjoyed these builds and may the force be with you!
  2. "Many Bothans died to bring us this information" Hello there, I proudly present to you my MOC "Home One Briefing room" It has been on Flickr for a bit now, but hadn't gotten around yet posting it here. Hope you enjoy! Home One Briefing Room by TWP., on Flickr Quite satisfied how this one turned out. Was a fun little MOC to do, some of the angles really gave me a headache, but it worked out in the end. In real life the gaps are less then they make it seem in the picture actually! I'm not really happy how the table turned out, but I consider this a nice practice MOC anyways for when I'll build a bigger Home One room Some detailed shots: Home One Briefing Room by TWP., on Flickr Home One Briefing Room by TWP., on Flickr Without figs: Home One Briefing Room by TWP., on Flickr A bit more pics on my Flickr. Hope you enjoyed! Be sure to comment if you like it!

    [MOC] Home One Microfighter

    Hello everyone. New member. I've been a lurker for a long time but I thought I should start posting stuff. I've been on a Microfighter (MOCrofighter?) kick the last few months. I know I'm late to the party but I started getting them all but realized I missed the first couple, decided to bricklink the sets, and then decided to start designing my own. This is the first one actually built. I have a bunch more I've been designing or collecting designs for if anyone is interested. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1fTn5kCAfR4akWOVFYwI47Ygy1ILIRUL1 These are about 2/3 mine, the rest are designs I found online and either tried to reverse engineer or just downloaded the stud.io file. (Credit given in the Ship List.txt file, some may have come from folks here.) I'm buying parts for the rest now, only 94 to go! As I get them built, I'll post the ones I designed. And if you have an idea for a Star Wars ship that's not on that list, let me know and I'll add it. Cheers!

    A-Wing [MOC]

    This is my version of the iconic Rebel Alliance A-Wing as seen in Return of the Jedi. I have all the official Lego versions but have never been happy with their overall design of such an iconic ship (though the figure selection with each set has been outstanding). I went for a more "beat-up" sort of "used", "it's been a few fights" sort of color scheme, swapping out some of the white plates for a variety of colors to give her the idea that the Rebel Techs have had to scrounge for parts to keep her flying. For display purposes I had to use my display stand I built for my TIE Interceptor as my A-Wing is heavy and not balanced (she's rear heavy). I also wanted to finish this MOC up before The Last Jedi comes out as there are versions of the A-Wing in that movie as well which ultimately means I'll be building another A-Wing MOC at some point once more reference material is obtained. I'm not totally satisfied with the landing gear arrangement, so at some point I'm going to redesign how the skids are attached/deployed to the underside. Comments as always are welcome.

    TIE Interceptor [MOC]

    This is my version of the iconic TIE Interceptor from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. I'm amazed that LEGO hasn't decided to update this creation themselves since 2006 with their release of 6206, especially after releasing 9492 (TIE Fighter) in 2012 which showcased almost movie accurate solar collectors and then the development of new elements for the windshield and cockpit hatch from 75150 Darth Vader's TIE Advanced vs. A-Wing Starfigther from 2016. I first need to give a shout out to the initial influence of Rebel Builder's TIE Interceptor MOC for the solar panel collectors and then too Kevin Yoo for his cockpit ball design. My biggest grudge with the TIE Interceptor MOCs was the connection point between the pylons and solar panel collectors. They always appeared to big, bulky, and cumbersome for a fighter that is suppose to be sleek and fast. My solution was to do some "unofficial" LEGO connectiions to keep the attachment points sleek and narrow. I'm still not 100% happy with my MOC, the pylons need to be thinner and I need to solidify the attachment point for the forward windshield (it's not the strongest connection). Any and all comments are appreciated. Follow the link to my Flickr page to see more of the design process. TIE Interceptor by gcanik, on Flickr Flickr Album view: https://flic.kr/s/aHskTH9hFx

  7. Hi All I've been building small star wars mocs lately. I usually restrict myself to mainly figs. I've always disliked lego speeder bikes so have made couple of my own variations. They are quite different builds but both despite being built on the same frame. There seems to be a mini fad on these lately... And here is the minifig scale one.

    [MOC] Home One briefing

    Had exactly an hour to spare last night so set myself a quick 1 hr challenge to knock up a Home One diorama - mainly as I recently got a Tridax pod (60934) in a bricklink haul. I usually limit my dioramas to two modified 12x12 bricks (part 52040), but due to the layout of the scene, I let myself stray here. I included the little X-wing doing a fly-by just because I happen to have picked up issue 1 of the new Lego Star Wars magazine today - this was the cover mounted build. My official Shuttle Tydirium hasn't arrived yet - if I haven't taken it apart, I'll substitute the Leia and endor troopers then. Thoughts appreciated!
  9. Hi' Here's my last moc : a 74S speederbike we can see in ROTJ. The moc is made by 27 bricks, and there's enough place for one minifig (a scout trooper for example). The pictures :

    Review: 75005 Rancor Pit

    I had a couple of hours to kill yesterday (car service) and I ended up walking past a small independent toy store which just happened to be filling their shelves with all of the new 2013 sets. To be honest I normally buy the bulk of my Lego online when a decent discount is available, but I was in a good mood and it felt nice to support them (and to buy from a store that actually pays some tax to HM treasury - UK EB members will know what I mean!) Anyway, I digress. This was the only set that jumped out at me when I first saw the 2013 line-up and so it wasn't too much of a struggle to buy it. Was I impressed? Read on and find out! Details from the Lego website: Help Luke escape the clutches of the mighty rancor! Build a famous scene from Star Wars™: Episode VI Return of the Jedi™ with this stackable set! Jedi Master Luke Skywalker is trapped in the Rancor™ Pit beneath Jabba the Hutt’s Palace and must escape. Look for a way out before the gate lifts and the mighty rancor makes an entrance! Battle the rancor with the bone before he eats the Gamorrean guard. Then, find the hidden compartment with a secret key or drop the gate on the space beast before it’s too late! Combine with LEGO® Star Wars™ 9516 Jabba’s Palace for a stackable scene with a trapdoor into the Rancor Pit! Includes rancor, skeleton and 3 minifigures: Luke Skywalker, Malakili and Gamorrean Guard. • Includes rancor, skeleton and 3 minifigures: Luke Skywalker, Malakili and a Gamorrean guard • Features opening gate, secret room and hidden compartment • Rancor features movable arms, jaw, hands and fingers • Accessories include bone, 2 keys, pitchfork and a bucket • Find the hidden key in the secret compartment! • Open the gate or smash it down onto the rancor! • Collect the first-ever LEGO® Star Wars™ rancor creature! • Rancor Pit measures over 6" (16cm) high, 7" (19cm) wide and 7" (20cm) deep • Combine with LEGO Star Wars™ 9516 Jabba’s Palace for a stackable scene with trapdoor into the Rancor Pit! • Rancor stands over 3" (10cm) tall RRP - £59.99 (UK), weight: 1,003g, Parts: 380 First impressions: The box felt heavy for its size, although there was a fair amount of empty space in it. It has the new 2013 style, which I'm still not sure about; I still have fond memories of OT Yoda in Episode V, sat quietly on a rock speaking wise words to Luke (i.e. in a non-CGI format!!) but that shows my age. Box front: Box reverse: Contents: The contents includes 4 numbered bags, 1 un-numbered, another containing the Rancor & a single instruction booklet (A4, 76 pages). Not surprisingly for a SW set there's a lot of grey, but it also includes some nice brown & dark tan. The set includes a nice range of parts and I'm sure that they will be useful for anyone who wants to MOC. The gate is the only part I don't like, it's a shame it couldn't have been made from smaller components. 380 assorted parts: Minifigures: The set includes 3-4 minifigures (depending if you count the skeleton, which I think is cute ) plus the Rancor. Both Luke & the Keeper have double-sided heads, the latter also has a sad face! I'm still not sure about the Gamorrean Guard, perhaps he will grow on me in time. Minifigures: Reverse: And finally the Rancor: I'm pleased that Lego has made him from several parts, rather than a single mould, so you build him. I was surprised how flexible he is; the legs are fixed, but his arms & hands have a wide range of movement. The designer has managed to strike a very good balance between it being movie-accurate & still retaining a 'Lego-like' style, not easy, all credit to them. Looking angry from the front: Looking angry from the reverse: The build: I really enjoyed building this, it wasn't overly challenging for a 37 year old, but it lacked the repetitiveness of other SW sets. The design is excellent & it includes lots of nice little features; the colour scheme is also very well done. I've taken photos of at different points of the build below: Page 15: Observant viewers will notice that there's a part missing...I spent a good 5 minutes trawling through everything, then eventually found it at the end of the build, old age I guess Page 30: The 'non-Lego' gate, it misses the point of Lego somehow! Page 45: Cave taking shape nicely Page 60: Almost done End result: Final thoughts: This is a very nice set. The minigures are all excellent, apart from the Gamorrean Guard which others have mentioned before. The part count is on the low side for a set of this RRP, but the cost of developing the Rancor must have been significant. It's fun to build and looks really good when merged with Jabba's Palace. Perhaps it could have been a bit larger....I can see now why the Rancor was so grumpy in the film!! 8/10 - Worth getting if you have the Palace, it's definitely one of the situations where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. I hope that you enjoyed my review, C & C welcome. And finally: 'I've been a bit worried about my Rancor, he's been looking a bit off-colour. I've just given him something that's supposed to be high in Midi-chlorians....according to the vet he should be fine in a couple of days'
