Imperial Shuttle / Arrival of the Emperor
My latest creation: Imperial Shuttle kit with custom designed Death Star hanger
About this creation
Built in 2011 for Science Discovery Day at Berkeley Preparatory School Tampa. 30,000+ pieces! 388 Star Wars minifigs!

Original scene from "Return of the Jedi"


















Someone asked me if that is a TV screen.. That is all LEGO.. except for the starfield: hand painted posterboard!














Clone Troopers.. I know.. but unfortunately, Storm Troopers are REALLY expensive! LEGO... PLEEEASE put out one more Storm Trooper Battle Pack kit!!!




Photoshop Fun! On the picture below, I digitally added the right bay wall.. The original model included only a small, PARTIAL wall, for better viewing.

The troops are on side-studded bricks. 95% of the floor is 'sideways' bricks. I've learned that this is called SNOT building (studs not on top)

Finally somebody did this! Are the clones standing on studded plates on are they just free-standing? that would be a nightmare to fix if somebody knocked them over

Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational battle station! Oh, and to answer the "question" from down below, SNOT simply means "studs not on top" so yes, you did use SNOT in this build. Man this thing is just... Ya know, "impressive" isn't nearly a strong enough word, even when Vader says it. ~ Chris.

Holy evil sith lord, Batman ! This is astonishing ! How on earth do you get the funding for something like this? it must have cost a fortune ! Not many people get the chance (or money) to build something this big, and you've done a great job on it ! Must be a little awkward transporting it though... All the details are great, and the sheer size just adds to the impressiveness - one of the best things I've seen on here in ages; if not of all time :) - Dan

As Jack Lockhart said I don't understand the clones or Darth maul, but I'm guessing you put that there to fill a gap? Overall, besides petty, unnoticable things I'd definetely buy that for $2000 cash, you know if I had $2000 cash! Love the hanger and the "red carpet!" You are definitely one of my favorite builders now! Cool! Please join my group(s) it would be an honor!

I`m a lego castle man myself, and just looking outside the castle theme for a moment obviously other immense themes of grandeur exist, I thought my line up lego knights looked good.....space lego, star wars must be the big one....well done, just like the movie.....the TV is a good idea, gives a stunning further blue screen type expanse to it all.....very good.....

Quoting Demolition Dummy That's amazing! How much time did you spend on it? Is the floor SNOT bricks or just some baseplates tiled over?
I've never heard of SNOT bricks! I used an array of 'sideways' black 1x12's, 1x8's, 1x6's, 1x2's and 3's etc etc for the floor. Also used 1x2's with side stud/clips for the minifig's feet, to prevent them from falling down like dominoes!

Thank you! That's not a TV actually.. though i DID toy with the idea of using one for the 'space' background. I went for had-painted posterboard instead!

Quoting DA BEAST like eko, i also dont agree with using clones. And why is darth maul there? If you got a lot of storm troopers instead of clones, the scene itself with the ship and the line up would be an even more impressive moc than it is already! 3.5-4/5
