A diorama showing a typical street scene in Theed during the Naboo uprising
About this creation
This is my first proper diorama on MOCpages and I hope it is well received. It shows a made-up scene on a typical street scene in the capital of Naboo, Theed, during the Second Battle of Theed during the liberation of Naboo from the Trade Federation (ie end of Episode 1). This scene is not meant to be film-accurate at all, it is just a representation of the battle.
Here we have an overview
A Gungan Soldier prepares to throw his atlatl at the nearest droid while Jar Jar looks worried. There are some custom Naboo pilots in the background
This house looks perfectly normal from the outside...
But inside it has been taken over by Nute Gunray and his Trade Federation allies (OK this is diverging from the storyline quite a bit, I know but it was fun to build). There is a control base and overview of the battle in hologram-style on the left, and a map of the surrounding planets on the right wall (It didn't come out very well, there are lots of 1x1 round plates on there) Nute Gunray is talking to Darth Sidious via hologram
Next door we have a house belonging to a Rodian immigrant. Upstairs his personal droid gets supper laid out...
... while downstairs the occupant is intrigued by what is going on outside his house
This is the interior of a house belonging to a Mon Cala. It is directly opposite the Trade Federation house, and has a balcony.
A custom Padme and a custom Sio Bibble talk to each other about how the battle is going on as they prepare to go under an archway
A custom commando looks round the corner of a house, only to find a droid commander pointing a gun at him!
The exterior of the Rodian's house, with a well-kept small garden at the front
A flag dangles from its pole ona another building, showing its support for the uprising
Another shot of Padme and Sio Bibble going under the archway
The Mon Calamari decides to get in on the action, sniping at the droids from his balcony with his custom Mon Cala rifle
Another shot of Padme, this time showing her elaborate dress
Another custom commando peeks out from the corner of a building
A shot showing the view diagonally across the street
This diorama made me make six custom minifigs (Padme, Sio Bibble, two pilots, and two commandos). I am hoping to make an extension to this, maybe adding part of the Theed Hangar and get the Naboo Starfighter set and the Sith Infiltrator set to add a better Padme, Qui-Gon, Darth Maul, Panaka, another Pilot, Anakin, and a droideka.

Great buildings and place! 5/5 Very great! This is very cool and this scene too! but...Sorry, but your pics are very bad... so just some tips: 1. use macro for closeups (the symbol looks like a flower) 2. NO flash light 3.lay some papers on the floor for a white ground 4. take the pics at normal daylight 5. when possible, not tremble while taking pics. your pics wont blurry! I hope i could help you! dont take it as criticism just a motivation and tip! Oh and sorry for grammar and other mistakes, i hope you understood me! :D Deff
