EDF Space City
A Jon Newsome microfig production.
About this creation
For this MOC I decided to go back to one of my earlier themes: The Earth Defense Force microfig creations. It took about a month and a half to complete. Though it may look small, look for some of the details such as the greebling. I did not use large baseplates but constructed a platform out of grey flat pieces, a first for me. Highly influenced by the Sim City games, I wanted to create numerous different towers which would compose a skyline and thus a small city. The city is primarily solar powered, slightly industrial and has a space port. There are "subway" lines that run above and under the city.

Moc added January 26th, 2008.






















The scale is supposed to be 10 occupants per 1x1 flat piece. I don't know how large this makes the city. All I know is this scale is too small for starfighters (hence there are none visible in the hanger). Obviously the city is somewhat militaristic with several weapon emplacements scattered about. If you are a Jon Newsome fan you may have noticed that I reused the large gun which can be first seen in my last moc Reich Tactical Launch Zone 2 (In case you missed it the first time around.) When I first built the gun for the Reich zone, I thought it would look better in a microfig environment.






















New this time around is my "elaborate" photography. Lacking white sheets, pillow cases, posters, cell phones, paper plates, watch batteries, human souls, and cushions, I had to settle with using trash bags, and it actually came out pretty well, though not pro level, but this has to do primarily with the camera I use. I used some bley and new grey (there IS a difference right?) sparsely throughout but I doubt you will notice. I needed as many greebly things as possible. Actually I had completed the entire thing about 2 weeks ago without ANY greebling, but it looked so dull I went back and ripped up everything, layed down a ton of any small pieces I could find, and rebuilt the city.
























So why did I build this? Actually there were times when I just wanted to kick it and laugh maniacally. But I didn't. Why didn't I? You be the judge.


Edit: To Shannon and Nannan: You two both released some great microfig creations during the course of my construction which gave me some great inspiration to continue this MOC.

Its very creative and I like it, but I cant help thinking that having such a large gun stationed in the middle of the city would make the city a tactical target, so this gun actually poses a THREAT to the city, rather than a protection...

I've seen this MOC several times and never reviewed it... It's one of the prettiest microscale base here ! I love everything on it, especially the color scheme (grey and trans-green).

WOW!!! =D that's AMAZING!!!!!! wow! I would ask for a set, but there is to many parts for one kit! You are a great lego builder (P.S. could you give me some ips on how to make such cool cockpit like in your 'other' creations folder? you make great space ships)

Yow! The needle on my greebleometer just broke off! Not quite sure what to make of all this, except it looks like it could pretty easily knock my pacifistic little Shannonia down and take its lunch money. Wish I'd caught this when it first hit the 'pages.

great work. Shannon would be proud. I spent the last hour or so trying to leave a funny (or close approximation there of) review. mocpages however, had other plans so you're stuck with this. Sorry for the lack of smack. keep up the good work. ~ Chris
