Hoth (IT'S A...)

Post by legorevolution on Mon May 24, 2010 11:34 pm

Near one of the side entrance points of Echo Base on Hoth, some Rebel scouts make their way through the trenches. Thinking they have caught the sith lord Darth Vader, they call in to open the side entrance. Fatal mistake for the rebels on Hoth.















Due to deep snow, battles fought on Hoth during the Clone Wars resulted in many casualties and MIA troopers..






"Sir look Darth Vader!"

"He's surrendering!"

"Call this in. Tell them to open the side entrance to the base, and say we've got a prisoner!"


A 1.4 FD P-Tower laser cannon, won't aid the rebels in this skirmish.


Contrary to popular belief, beneath the frozen surface of Hoth, there are natural hot springs that make perfect places of rest and spas. It is a popular destination for criminals wanted by the Space Police.




Ice crystals, though not as high in mineral count as rocks, are still a nutritious part of a rock monster's diet.


Top shot. The base is 30x30 and heavily inspired by Marshal Banana.

Cheers

Damn it, Tac you should have hacked an Admin!

Awesome job Revo, you never cease to amaze me! I love the idea, the other bits of LEGO themes included, and the Moc itself! Has a high % chance of me voting for it.

Unbelievable Amazing.
I love every thing and theirs a few funny things like Darth Vader setting a droid with Vader's helmet to trap the rebels, and Admiral Ackbar in the back is probably saying "Its a Trap!". Very good details and the probe is cute and I think this moc is most impressive. Razz

Trap!

Nice job, and good idea. I like the shape of the snowbanks.
But I think there's something missing....

It just doesn't seem as epic as usual...

I have to agree, combining different lego themes was very clever, nice job. Smile

This exceeds all levels of awesomeness. Whether it's the Vader disguised as a snowman, or the hidden snow compartments, or the Vader disguised as a snowman, or the snowed-in hidden compartments...

I agree, it just doesn't have the Revo wow factor. Don't get me wrong, it's awesome, it's just doesn't have the Revo standard IMO. So far this looks like it has a great shot at first though. Thumbs up

I like the touch of humor added, but I agree with them ^ it just doesn't seem like what you would normally do. Wink Smile

I see your point: what would be normal would be 100+ of the same white piece in the same general area, like a wheatfield or a grassy plain. Razz

Yeah, I wanted to place.

All hopes of that just flew out the window with all these latest entries.

Nice work, Revo. Though it isn't what I expected from you, it's still one of the forerunners in the competition.

Thanks for the comments guys. Though I am fairly surprised so many of you are disappointed by it? :scratch: Sorry if that's actually the case, or just a way to get back at me for being a bad admin. Wink . I took more of a humor approach, but I had a fun time building and rather liked it. In the end you gotta do what pleases you and not others sometimes. Wink When you can't have fun building anymore then it's time to take a break from the hobby.

Not at all, it just doesn't have that epicness your other MOC's have. As I said in my last post it's great, but just something is off. It still has my vote though. Wink Smile

I really like the overall look, but for some reason the snow just doesn't feel like snow to me, perhaps because it has too much edges and corners.

Laughing I love Hoth MOCs, but there are so many it takes one of three things to make it stand out. 1. Size- MOCs that are immense always wow people. 2. Humor- Making people laugh generally merits a higher rating. 3. Technique- Impressive techniques like innovative SNOT make even the most talented MOCers whip out their notepads. I think you mastered #2 and partly #3 with the SNOT technique used on the snow banks. Overall 9/10 Thumbs up

This just... plain rocks!

I really can't point out one thing I like about it though. Very well down, I see why you didn't post it on the day you said you would. This is just cool.

I love the comic relief...

Nice Job.
