A humorous Hoth diorama built for the CABG Empire Strikes Back contest over at the CABG.
About this creation
Near one of the side entrance points of Echo Base on Hoth, some Rebel scouts make their way through the trenches. Thinking they have caught the sith lord Darth Vader, they call in to open the side entrance. Fatal mistake.
The dio was built for the May 2010 Empire Strikes Back contest at the CABG. The challenge was to build a scene on Hoth with at least one rebel and imperial troop.
"Wait for it..."
Due to deep snow, battles fought on Hoth during the Clone Wars resulted in many casualties and MIA troopers..
"Sir look Darth Vader!"
"Call this in. Tell them to open the side entrance to the base, and say we've got a prisoner!"
Contrary to popular belief, beneath the frozen surface of Hoth, there are natural hot springs that make perfect places of rest and spas. It is a popular destination for criminals wanted by the Space Police.
Ice crystals, though not as high in mineral count as rocks, are still a nutritious part of a rock monster's diet.
Top shot. The baseplate measures 30x30 studs.

Another excellent vig from you Revo, but nothing less than what I expected. The frozen clone, hidden Space Police criminals, and rock monster really add another dimension to this. One factor that I think most other people will overlook is the ground. Simple, but nice. Good luck in the contest.
