M.O. Round 1 - "Dark Side of the Moon" (LB Senior)
Far far away, in a galaxy not so very far away.... Following the destruction of the Death Star, Darth Vader and his troopers are forced to retreat to another galaxy - one called Milky Way....
About this creation
My entry for Round 1 in the 2012 MocOlympics.

Category: Dark Side of the Moon

Upon learning of the category assigned, I was rather stumped at first as to what to build. But I quickly combined the term "Dark Side" from Star Wars with the more obvious meaning behind the title. I struggled with the layout of the build for a while, but eventually I finished it. Upon completing it however, I realized that my MOC, though unintentionally, is very identical to Ben King's "Houston, We have a problem..." 2012 Mocathon .












I apologize for my lack of knowledge with anything Star Wars. I had to look up some facts as I went along.


Thanks to the judges and may the best build win!

Quoting Flare . LOL its a nice build, but the figures don't make any sense :P
Building in the Star Wars theme was really out of my comfort zone. So, I'm not surprised it doesn't make sense. But then again, Star Wars on the moon?? It's not suppose to make sense! ;) -LB Senior

Quoting LukeSC Overlord . "Punny". If I didn't automatically hate puns, I would like that one Ian. Anyway, great work. The moonscape looks great, except that the craters are inverted. (?)
Quoting George Staples . . What happens on the dark side of the moon stays there because we don't have a moon colony yet. I do have to agree with luke, the craters are inverted..
Maybe they aren't inverted maybe they are in a crater and those are just some moon rocks.

Quoting ...Malydilnar ... Love it, especially the background. How do you get such a white background? do you use a light box?
I take my photos on a white card board with the exposure of my camera set high enough so that the white is clean and not grey. Any other impurities are then fixed in Picmonkey using the "exposure" tool. Occasionally I have to clone the white areas to erase unwanted spots on the board. Hope it helps! -LB Senior
