  1. *Your entry has earned 20 XP* Some crazy old wizard in the sand
  2. Hi all - I’d like to present to you my interpretation of a Tatooine themed MOC building. It is the first of several planned builds I have for this 'theme'. I plan to label these as TATxx where xx increases with each build. It is based on background buildings seen in Episodes I and IV, whilst also drawing on the buildings in the SW BF2 game with my own spin/interpretation of it – i.e. what I think looks aesthetically pleasing and fits into the Tatooine 'world'. It contains a detachable roof which can be customised. For example, the dome piece (and mounting point) can be removed to create a flatter, large vent system instead. There is also a functioning door with two possible colours advised – one in DBG like those in Lego's own Mos Eisley sets, and a more movie accurate dark orange colour for extra customisation. This opening door function is neatly hidden away at the side of the building. The interior is mostly empty - mainly left up to your own interpretation, but I’ve included suggestions for light, gun and binoculars within the instructions. The removable roof allows easy access to provide extra scope and playability. One example that I like to think this is, is a home for a Mos Eisley Cantina patron with 'homemade aerials' trying to capture the local broadcasts or streaming the pod racing. The building really 'comes alive' when figures and details outside give it a richer experience. Any comments are welcome and please leave a message/query if you spot an error within the instructions. I shall try my best to quickly correct it. The instructions are available here: Original post hidden in the spoiler.
  3. The meeting in Mos Taike had been seemed that the Socorro Trade Guild may have some need for Oteefo's Engineering skills... But now there was the task of rounding up the crew, Z-5 and Frax were waiting at one of the many dilapidated harvestors scattered throughout the desert, this one had been claimed and repaired by K'vos when he arrived on Tatooine. Traveling in the cities with his droids could be problematic... Frax had done most of the repair work on the harvestors....he was a real wiz with machinery. Z-5 was a bit of a mystery, a garbage heap on Geonosis. He was clearly quite an advanced prototype's unclear why his like never saw production. After emptying the harvestor's hopper, the three settled in for the long ride back to the compound, they would surely not be there by night fall.... Bonus Images:
  4. After I spent some time relaxing here, on Tatooine, it's time to work. I've found a decent job last week and I collected some information about it: The target is a Rodian named Eaklo Khzecez. He was a racing pilot, he did mostly podracing, but also did speeder bikes races too. He was sponsored by the Hutts, it meant that he had to do what he was told. Towards the end of his career he had to lose more and more times and he was satisfied with this. On his last race, instead of losing he won it. As later it turned out, he betted himself. He grabbed the money and disappeared with it. Since then he's probably traveling around the planet on his speeder, but no one has able to find him already. Until now... Eaklo Khzecez - Haku? (What?) Eaklo Khzecez - Ting cooing koo soo ah. (I've got the credits.) Bohr Gotta - Mala tram pee chock makacheesa. (You should have paid him when you had the chance.) Eaklo Khzecez- Ah'chu apenkee? (Who are you?) Bohr Gotta - Mee jewz ku! (Goodbye!)

    MOC Eisley

    Was a little disappointed in the latest version so I decided to beef up 75052.

    [MOC] Sandcrawler

    Ah 75059. My wallet shrieked, tore off screaming and hasn't been seen since. So I gathered up all the brown, tan and greys I could find and put together a sandcrawler, of the Tatooine + Jawa variety. Here's a MOC in the possible Midi-scale range; however it is also large enough for figs and features 4 custom Jawas... and a number of captured droids stuffed in the hold. I wanted something a bit more like the previous sandcrawler - but smaller. The result is something that fits well among the other Tatooine playsets and vehicles. In other words, I want a sandcrawler at a scale that won't compete with The Death Star 10188 for shelf display superiority. I didn't have a substantial number of brown and light brown plates around to make the exterior so this sandcrawler actually has more in common with 10114's than 75059. And of course, much smaller. The windows aren't exactly screen-accurate in their placement, however they provide an excellent view from inside the cockpit. I was able to score some simple treads for the bottom and although, they are also not the most screen-accurate representation, I feel they capture the spirit and also allow the crawler to move fairly smoothly. Here's the crew. Custom Jawas include torsos and feet from old Ewoks and black head pieces from Stormies. The brown hoodies are from surplus Obi Wans collected over the years. The yellow eyes are single blobs of nail polish. I didn't feel they needed decal torso prints but hey... maybe someday. The back area was the most fun to detail. I looked at some official schematics as well as some incredible builds from around the 'net for inspiration. The two cylinder things at the rear are distinctive and needed to be included. A couple of simple, strategically placed round studs provide a stopping point for the angled front walls of the crawler. The result is a snug fit when the door is raised - however the pieces are fairly worn and it won't hold in place. :/ On the top I had to take some liberties with the overall shape of the front since I wasn't using bricks that would allow such dramatic slopes. Here's the interior view from the forward bay. Junk and droids lay scattered along the entire first floor. You can see a maintenance bay above that - this piece is part of a large hunk that is removed for access to the interior. Here it is removed: The detachable part by itself: Overhead view of the cockpit and the hold below: The cockpit is just high enough for a Jawa to stand and the lid opens and closes easily. Over on the other end is a small platform where an engineer Jawa can access the main reactor. Well, that's that. I think the scale is good for my display, so I'm not looking to enlarge it but I do feel the shape of the upper front (cockpit area) might find improvement somehow. Also I'm looking to do a bit more color swapping in favor of the color pattern from 10114. I'm certainly open to comments and criticism. Thanks for checking it out and best of luck sweeping the deserts for salvage!

  12. Aside from patrolling the Tatooine dunes, Merc was assigned as local security for the Mos Eisley spaceport in search of a suspicious Rodian. Merc: Looks like we're here. Last part of our patrol route, Mos Eisley. Trooper: Worst part of Tatooine too. Merc: You heard stories about this place? Trooper: Plenty. Not too long ago there was something about two guys in a bar who picked a fight with some scrawny farm boy. You think they'd have no problem right? But then the kids old man showed up and chopped off one of the guys' arm. Merc: Heh, guess its true what they say. You won't find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy than in Mos Eisley. Sergeant: Hey, you two! Quit standing around. Get back to searching for that Rodian. Trooper & Merc: Yes sir! Merc: Hey there's one over by that street vendor. Think it could be him? Trooper: Blasted, they all look the same to me. Merc: Come on, lets check it out. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hey guys, back with a small free-build. I initially had a larger set-up prepared but due to a lack of tan pieces I made it a vignette instead. Also the back beams are not my design. Please judge this build.

    Episode IV Tatooine Layout

    This layout took me a while to put together, so I hope you like it. It includes various official sets, and many more custom mocs.
  17. On my first day as part of commander Ulric's unit, we had received concerning orders. The empire had issued a hit list of identified Black Sun spies hiding out on Tatooine who were too dangerous to be left alive. Our target was an imperial officer whose been secretly transmitting imperial records to Prince Xizor. Normally taking out traitors is no trouble, but we couldn't risk tipping off Xizor. We were going to have to make the officer "disappear". Luckily I was always good with a blaster and Tatooine is a terribly unsafe place. So while commander Ulric "escorted" the spy on ground, I took to the roof tops. Even with all the stalls and civilians, the traitor was easy prey. And just as I got the perfect shot, Ulric gave the order. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hey guys, here is my entry for Ep. XIII challenge. It was originally going to be two towers but the pieces I ordered for the second building didn't arrive on time so I decided to downscale the build and included a stall instead. Overall I like how it turned out, smaller than I had intended but I think it now has a little more variation than my original design. So tell me what you guys think and thanks for viewing. Also, sorry about the poor photo quality, I'll try to edit a better photo before the final hour.
  18. We managed to find the wanted Rodian at Mos Eisley, thinking he was just another smuggler trying to hide out on Tatooine. But it turns out he wasn't your everyday space scum. No, this Rodian was caught stealing imperial codes, no doubt to sell them to Rebels. As soon as we called him over he ran and made us chase him down to the flea markets on the outskirts. He was fast and he even tried to use the crowds as cover, probably thinking that we wouldn't shoot, but catching him was more important. Get out of the way! Blasted! He's gonna get away. Aim for his legs. We only need him alive. He tried to hide through the crowd but as soon as blaster shots were fired, a wide path opened leading us straight to him. All it took was a few shots and just like that the Rodian fell to the ground, dropping his blaster and the Imperial codes. Don't move Rebel scum! Call in HQ, tell them to get the interrogation droid ready. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hey guys, back with the final part of my Tatooine intro arc. I tried to make the most of my tan pieces on this build, especially for the cliff side and I also finally got to use those ewok glider cloth pieces I'm so fond of. All in all, I'm pretty happy with this build. So tell me what you guys think and thanks for viewing. Please judge this build.
  19. See the rest of the story: Season 1 Season 2 MKJoshA, Kale, are you there? Yes, we're here. Hold on, your picture isn't coming through right. Ah, there we go. My color balance was off. I need you two to go to Tatooine and investigate the X-wing that fired on Luke to see if we can learn anything more about this saboteur. PLEASE NOTE! The following picture is the "First Picture" for my contest entry and it includes the seed part. The previous pictures were for story sake and should not be counted in the entry. "You there," asked Josh, "droids. What can you tell us about this X-wing?" "Oh my!" responded the protocal droid. "I'm afraid there has been obvious signs of tampering." "The technicians are still dismantlement the circuitry," he continued. "But it seems that certain parts were used that are only manufactured on Coruscant" he finished. "Thank you for the information," said Josh. "Now let's finish the investigation of the circuitry and see if we can flesh out any more details." OoC: Yes, I have gone to the darkside and I have converted to fleshies. I made this decision after chatting with Rogue Angel at Brickworld, Chicago. Every other kind of build of mine will continue to use yellows, but it just makes sense to use fleshies in my Star Wars builds now. I had no idea LucasLaughing was going to do the same thing! I'm really happy with the heads I found to replace my character's old yellow heads. My character is Will Turner's and Kale's is Superman/Hyperion's. Let me know what you think!
  20. With the rebellion on the rise, more and more stormtroopers were spread through out the galaxy to search and seize the galactic insurgents. And Merc4Hire's unit was no exception, much to his delight as his days of exploring beyond the Tatooine dunes had finally arrived. ----- Hello fellow Imperials and Rebels, I've recently joined this RPG and wanted to make a simple introduction build for my character. The picture is a bit blurry since I had to use a camera I was unfamiliar with (for reasons) but I hope its not too hard on the eyes. If this counts for points, please judge this build and thanks for viewing.

    [MOC] Modular Cantina

    The problem with being an Afol and living in a small flat, is I don't have enough space to display all my sets. So I decided to build a diorama made of 75052 Cantina and other bricks from my collection. Then, I added a lot of minifigures from the original Trilogy plus others like Jar-Jar and a robot from the Space theme. I was inspired by the Creator buildings int he way I wanted my cantina to be opened vertically. The fanboys will tell that the Cantina has only one floor... My crew : The "easter egg" :
  22. Continuing my series of 80's, Kenner toys. I also built the Body-Rigs and the Rebels, Vehicle Maintenance Energizer. I figured, since these are smaller models, I would post all of these in one topic. A Body-Rig was a small one-man vehicle designed and released by Kenner in 1985. They were even smaller than the Mini-Rigs. Two of the vehicles have managed to appear in Star Wars: Droids: the Imperial Sniper Vehicle and the Sand Skimmer Vehicle. First is the Imperial Sniper Vehicle . The Imperial Sniper Vehicle was a Repulsorlift craft piloted by one person. It featured a large open seat, two blaster cannons and a grappling claw. It eventually saw use during the Battle of Endor in 4 ABY. This model has 185 pieces. Next, is the Rebels, Security Scout Vehicle. The Security Scout Vehicle was a one-man repulsorlift craft used by the Rebel Alliance. It was piloted by a driver in an open seat. The vehicle had two blaster cannons and a rudder to steer. During the Galactic Civil War, the Security Scout Vehicle was used during the Battle of Hoth to eliminate any Imperial soldiers that were following Rebels to the Echo Base. They were later put to use during the Battle of Endor. The pilot, on this model, is held in place by a neck bracket with the control arms coming over head. Looks like it would be a blast to pilot, but, no cover from enemy fire. Seems like a risky vehicle to pilot?! This model has 86 pieces. Last for the Body-Rigs, is the Sand Skimmer Vehicle. A sandskimmer was a small one-man vehicle primarily used to travel in desert environments. Malakili, the keeper of Jabba's rancor, used one when he let the rancor out into Tatooine's Dune Sea for some exercise.[3] It also saw usage by Jabba's Skiff Guards. This model has 85 pieces. I'm having alot of fun making these. Re-living my childhood?! Re-creating them in Lego is alot of fun and challenging too! Hope you guys like them!! The last model I am going to post to this topic is the Rebels, Vehicle Maintenance Energizer. This toy was released in 1982. This is something that no Hoth or Yavin base can go without. And, no Lego set-up should! What would you do if a piece falls off, you'll need this for the Mini-Figs to fix it!! Again, hope you guys like these and I'll post my Side Gunner, ATL Fighter, and White Witch soon. Thanks for looking, Jamie

    [MOC] - Tatooine with UCS Slave I

    Hi, as you can see on my nick i´m fullfilling whishes from the past :) I was a big fan and stopped with Lego in the age of 14 like most others here i guess. Then in december of 2015 i bought the new UCS Tie fighter. I saw so much new parts and variations of older ones, couldn´t trust my eyes. 4 days after the Tie i bought the Slave I and build it extra slow over 3 days. It was my first get in touch with real SNOT building. Where to start? somewhere on a big baseplate that needed most of my old parts. Unfortunately i didn´t make that much pictures of building progress. You sure have seen this design before, for the Millenium Falcon but as we know Slave I has also been on Tatoine there is no problem right? :) some € and many hours later, testing different ways to make rectangle bricks round - and also reading a good manual about SNOT i´m finally done. It´s looks too nacked and too clean atm but i´m willing to add much more details to this moc, which was just designed as a "stand" for the UCS. today i added the moisture vaporator, i´m looking for some other minifigures too and want to redesign the small house which looks soooo boring. Opinions welcome
  24. "I don't like him. He's coarse and irritating, and he gets everywhere." The Twi'lek girl in the cantina had been right- the Rodian gunrunner was splattered over his hideout, an arm the only thing recognisable as belonging to him. He'd tried to run from my guns, the irony. His goons had put up a fight, but no one gets away from Demos Khan, Scourge of the Outer Rim. Or something like that, I forget what they call me now. The only sounds I can hear are the moans of the dying mingling with hiss of the door as it opens and closes on the lone arm draped across it's threshold. And the soft crunch of my boots on the sand. Job done. The dead Rodian's arm: Demos Khan himself: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ So, I hope this is alright as a bounty hunter build! C+C welcome! Definitely got a lot more inspiration for SONE now.
  25. I know it's like beating a dead horse already but after watching TFA, I felt compelled to post this. I made it like a playset because I have a 5 y.o. son who is into LEGO minifigures as well. The droid detector is also working (the flashing lasts for about 2 days without turning off completely) but I am looking for a way to use 3rd-party lights to add more LED lights. This is my attempt to recreate the Mos Eisley Cantina scene in episode IV and be faithful to how the characters should appear. I strived to put each characters in the location I believe is correct but of course there are many ways to interpret where they are because some of them moved around. So I just assumed the internet references I used are correct because after watching this scene over and over I am still confused where some of those aliens are located. Why work in progress? I feel that it is too small for 64x64 ... to be minifig scale. Should I move it to a bigger plate dimension? What I like with my current model is that each 32x32 plate are 'modular' so I can snap them on and off whenever I am moving them around for display.
