Tales on Tatooine: Jawas head to a local homestead in order to sell some droids
About this creation
Here's the overall diorama :)
The Diorama from behind, a Protocol Droid goes about his daily business
All the Cargo under cover
Decided to go with Dark Tan for this rather then Tan. I'm sure the colours of the sand on Tatooine vary depending on location.
Side on view of the Homestead
More sort of Star Wars-y greeble panel details.
All the bases in my Tales On Tatooine Series will have this cool SNOT boarder with rocks and plates like so :)
I won't lie, I'd love to see Tatooine or other OT/Prequel planets in the New Star Wars Trilogy.
Moisture Vapour thing by the house
Been re-watching Star Wars Rebels and the Clone Wars... Man they are amazing shows!
The Clone Wars was my childhood man, so many awesome memories there!
Absolutely loved Ahsoka and Rex's stories, so incredible seeing them both in Rebels.
But I totally love Hondo, always made me laugh as a kid, also great to see him in Rebels
The Two Jawas. Do we have a Canon visual of their actual faces?
The owner of the Homestead heads out ready to buy some droids
Also I've been reading some more Star Wars comics. Mostly the new canon stuff, I'm totally down to reading some of the Legends stuff. Any suggestions on good legends comics?

Gonna be sad when Rebels comes to an end soon, but I'm looking forward to the awesome stuff that will come from it.

Added an additional little thing on the side.

Fourth Wall Commentary:
This is the first MOC in a series of Tatooine Vig/Dioramas. They are basically slice of life style vigs of things you'd likely see on Tatooine. Some reference Star Wars Rebels, others like this diorama are from my imagination, but could easily slot into the Star Wars Universe. Very happy with the textures on this diorama, think I really captured the Tatooine style and architecture in this.
Anyway this is the first of four in this series. Stay tuned for the next 3 :)
Really well done! The overall vibe is great, and I like the use of the sail as a canvas roof! Like Tray said, they have been described as ratlike! I really like the minifig, as well, as it does random clothes a tatooinian would find well! xP I would suggest the name Eva Bacar.
The diorama is a really cool look at ordinary life on Taatoine. It would be really cool if after the Tales on Tatooine series you branched out onto other Star Wars planets. For the homestead owner, I think a good name might be Tala Linari. And as for reading materials, the Dark Horse Droids series is a gem that I feel is far to often overlooked.
Hey, I dunno if we ever see the faces of the Jawas, but they are described as being similar to rats. This is a nice little scene, with excellent parts usage! I like how you stacked up all the crates! Very nice!
Absolutely amazing! I love it! And I wholeheartedly agree about Rebels and Clone Wars. And Ahsoka and Rex. They were two of my favorite characters for sure. I also loved the Domino squad and especially the story with Fives and Echo. Man, those were some frustrating episodes lol. And Rebels is so good! Haven't seen the 3rd or 4th season, but I'm going to see the third season soon, so I'm hyped!
