About this creation
A nice overview of the whole MOC :)
Two Sandtroopers on duty... Or maybe they are just Stormtroopers with Hygiene problems
Two Jawa's having a chat. Probably about that one time they kidnapped this one droid... then Larry his friend will be all like... "Stop lying Barry that never happened, get a real job! ... I mean Utinni..."
A Moisture Vapour thingy and Arnold the A-wing pilot whose totally not an A-wing Pilot just getting a drink when he should be on duty
A small landing platform... small yes probably used for small ships/TIE Fighters or just cargo I don't know :P
Two market stalls, Clearly the sellers can't be trusted... you know what they say "I have a bad feeling about this!"
The BB unit is totally a prototype for the future... totally... cannon ... or not ... shhhhhh!
A nice banner thing to protect them from the sun... although it probably doesn't... silly aliens
Another look at the whole town
Another shot, which we've kinda seen before... yeah I go a bit crazy with photo taking :P
A nice sort of POV shot, just pretend you're Luke Skywalker taking a stroll through town!
What's this! An Interior behind the buildings?
Not on this one... but the other one?
... AN INTERIOR! Who'd have thought!
Lots of storage inside this house
The houses owner... I saw him as the Star Wars Yondu... Hondu? Jondu? Fondu? Bondu? ... OHHH!! James Bondu ... perfect!
Inside the other building is a Cantina with Slimy Steve... ehhh steve isn't Star Wars-y enough... Ok commenters! Leave your suggestions below!
The seating in the Cantina with all sorts of ads and bounties and things. Yes Cat's get stuck in Tatooine Trees... totally cannon... shhh!!
The door and the Cantinas logo
upstairs are two rooms to stay the night
Here's a sort of overview shot of the background
The roof. Banana Air Conditioners were clearly the company behind the random Star Wars-y tech on the roof
Another shot of the marketplace
A Rodian selling food. Man... what an epic guy! cut off an aliens head and selling it as food ... What a guy
Same Cantina logo on the outside there
Different lighting... same shot
Look at Larry the Jawa staring into your soul... "UTINNI MOTHERFU-"
Fourth Wall Commentary:
If you've been a fan since the beginning you'd know I used to have a lot of Star Wars diorama's for the various planets across the galaxy. I ended up taking most of them apart since I posted them. I loved having them built and constantly adding more and more so I'm fully intending on building a bunch more, pretty much do what I did... what was it 5 years ago... dang.
But yeah it's cool in my eyes to see how my ability as a system builder has grown since those early dioramas. Sure I only have one build so far, but others are on their way so stay tuned! Let me know if you're keen for specific planets kinda thing :)
I intend to build a few more diorama's for Tatooine, something like a bunch of sand leading up to canyons and Tusken Raider homes etc. I sort of intend to build 2-3 dios per planet this time, kinda like a 'best of' or 'here's everything you could expect on this planet' sort of thing :)
Anyway with this diorama specifically, I intended on it being more of a sort of small settlement somewhere on the planet, not related to or close to Mos Eisley, just you know a small city somewhere, think small country down in the middle of nowhere you'd likely have your car breakdown on.
I had some people say this looked more like Jedha then Tatooine, and yeah I can totally see that, but I built it intending it to be Tatooine, so in my books it is, but hey you do you if you want it to be Jedha go ahead :P
Really nice work! I love how the sand creeps over the edges on the areas without buildings. I also love the moisture vaporator, the cantina logo, the market stalls and the figs. Awesome work all round. I also noticed Steve's gun! =)
This is great. I like all the little details. I'd believe this would be a place on Tatooine. And you know who Slimy Steve should be? One disgruntled Sebastian Shaw for his ghost being removed in 2004. Unfortunately, his revenge did not play out too well, he lost his battle with court and now he's run off to the Outer Rim to start anew. And he grew a mustache and changed his name to Steve to escape justice.
