Trapped In The Trash Compactor (complete)
After working on this for a month and a half (did anyone miss me?), I present the completed version of my Moodland-scale trapped in the tash compactor! Of course this is a famous scene from A New Hope that I finished the first half for A.C. Pin's Community Build over on the Eurobricks Forum. I literally had to tear apart every brown SW Lego vehicle i had (poor Sandcrawler) and order an additional $40 worth of brown bricks and tiles to build this, BUT I'm pretty happy with the results. Needless to say, I won't be building anything this scale with a background anytime soon. As always, please RATE and COMMENT:)
About this creation









Like the Hasbro set this is based on, the 2 halves split to be reattached in a different position.


This is the half i started with (anybody remember?). I changed the tiles from dark gray to brown and raised the walls a few bricks.








Here are the halves attched differently. This orientation is more accurate to the scene in the movie but a little less dramatic IMO.

Awsome, sweet build. Maybe you could make it incorparated into the Death Star. Or you could just make an Imperial Star Destroyer garbage propulsion systems. Just an idea. Great build as always. ;)

Quoting El Barto ! How about the wampa scene? That would be a good one!
I actually did the Wampa scene with my old-school figs back in the day http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/131330 but that would be a cool scene to revisit!

Quoting Hans Dendauw NPD As always you capture an iconic scene in fine Moodswim fashion. Perfect chaos with the flotsam and the posing of those sweet characters is perfect. Chewie almost looks like he's laughing at Luke and Han...~H
HAHA! Maybe he IS!

Quoting Heath 'kik36' Flor Excellent job! I can't help but notice that Leia is wearing a bra though. Is this another "Lucas addition" for the upcoming 3D versions. Man, wouldn't that be lame to miss that in 3D! :P Your miniland figs are fantastic, and the details of the compactor are extraordinary!
Thanks! Believe it or not, the biggest challenge (besides designing the "trash"), was how exactly to replicate Leia's chest in Lego. Everything I tried was too big or too small. Not sure what the final look would be considered:)

Quoting Chris Phipson Isn't it amazing how hard it can be to make "random junk" appear random... when it's not? Great work here! (and yes...sniff... we did miss you.) Sorry for the delay by the way, MocOlympics gettin' in the way. Can't wait for the next one! ~ Chris.
Thanks, Chris! Glad to know someone missed me:)

This is fabulous. I simply love the miniland figures. The only problem I see is Leia's boobs.

Quoting The Pied Pauper $$ All the hard work, long hours, and dedication shows through brilliantly! So many great details. It looks just like the Hasbro set. You continue to outdo yourself. Are you going to keep it together, or replace all the brown you borrowed?
Thanks! I constantly try to improve with each build. Unfortunately, I have ZERO shelf space, so this will be torn apart shortly. As for putting all the parts back, that remains to be seen:)

Quoting Jhayk' Sulliy Wicked! I really like the sides. They look like a rusty old dumpster, and really capture the essence of the scene!
Thanks! I made a conscious effort to mix brown and reddish brown to get that worn look.

Chewbacca is gorgeous! This is fantastic Moody, lots of scrappy bits, making it really seem they are hanging out in death star trash. I like the second orientation best, much more compact than the first, makes it feel more claustrophobic like it does in the film. Love all that brown.
