Vader's Hunt for the Stolen Plans
A vignette. AKA "Artoo, where the heck are you?"
About this creation
From Star Wars Episode IV. This is my first vignette, built for an FBTB.net contest. This depicts the movie's opening sequence of Darth Vader's hunt for the stolen Death Star plans, as Princess Leia attempts to keep them safe.

   Front view. As Darth Vader makes his grand appearance, it's time to hide the secret plans!

   Behind the scenes view. I placed Leia a plate higher than the big minifig R2 to give her a better crouching over look.



Enlarge image
   Side view. Completely enclosing Vader's entrance corridor would have made the whole vig too boxy and claustrophobic given the allowed vig dimensions, so I went for the open-air look instead. Plus, it gives a nice contrast to the more obscure area where Leia hides.

   Top view to show off some of this vig's exterior detailing. No MOC (even a vig) is complete without greebling!

   Closeup of Vader's entry into the rebel ship. Unfortunately, there wasn't room for the fallen combatants.

   Meanwhile, Leia uploads the Death Star plans and her plea for help into the R2 unit. C3-P0 is clueless as usual.

   Interior shot from the rear. The red glow comes from shining regular light through the trans-red bricks on the sides.

   Side view of Vader's entrance. "Oooh, those @@#$% Bothans! They're gonna pay for this!!"

   Side view of the lower deck, showing off details like the interior overhanging pipes, large tanks, and trans-red bricks for red glow atmosphere.

   Exterior photo without the figs. The trans bricks are on the bottom on one side and on top for the other in order to match the lighting seen in the movie.

   Included is a detachable flat panel to give the entryway a black background.

   The FBTB contest rules impose an 8x8 footprint rule, with minor overhangs allowed over a 10x10 area.

For a first vignette, this is amazing. I am quite amazed at how you have the transparent 1x2 bricks to make red light. Excellent technique.I give this creation a 5/5.

I could not believe this is the first vinette that you build. I love SW, and your reconstruction is excellent.

Excellent! Great attention to detail Dennis. You've captured the feel of both scenes quite well in such a small footprint. The lighting is a nice touch. More, more I say...
