It's been a while since I've built a Star-Wars MOC. And I must apologize in advance for the bad quality pictures, as the MOC was built for the first AFOL event in Romania and conditions were not fit for taking photographs.

Keep in mind that this MOC is supposed to be impressive to a public at an event, which is not the same as a MOC built at home. Besides this, I had to use the official vehicles from Lego (RGS, AT-TE, Magna fighter). Also, apparently there are numerous discrepancies, there are figures which shouldn't be there but are, again this is because of the official stuff from LEGO that we had to use in the display (Plo-koon, assaj, magna fighter) ...and the fact that LEGO no longer produces the color teal (turqoise) , which is the true color of the buildings.

Despite the above, I'm happy with this creation.







And here are two extra pics I uploaded:

Me and the layout

Thanks for viewing and again, sorry for the crap pics.

The last link has wrong URL. Me no see you. Razz

Nevertheless, that's a really nice diorama, must've been quite impressive in the event.
The buildings look really good, their shape and colour are veru Christophsis-like. The road/bridge is quite awesome-looking as well, the numerous round plates look very neat. The action and the minifig positioning are also good, I especially like the jet trooper and Anakin attacking the tri-droid.
It's also nice that you've used the "useless" rubber band holding parts as a barricade.

The only thing I'd nag about is the footing of the buildings; it looks quite empty. Even though it's an event diorama, I would have preferred a sturdier look.

Very nice! The flooring is great, what with the round tiles, and the buildings are also well built(if teal was a better color Wink ). That Tri Droid is something else! Shocked

Wow, you've most definately one-upped me and my Tri-Droid. That thing is massive, and perfectly to scale with the minifigs.

Nicely done there Olog,

I like all the detail you put into this like the jet-trooper and the buildings. Another thing I like is how you possitioned the gunship so it's banking.

Good show ol' chap! Smile

I think you got the feel right mixing TLG and custom buildings (and a rather cool virus droid). It could be a shop display, only better!

I very much like the flooring and the walls. Also, kudos for use of the rubber-band holders. I've been meaning to get those things into a MOC for some time.

Floor=awesome Cool A very nice integration of sets and custom models, and the Tri-droid is great.
