Ok, there are many pictures, (20 or so) but I did pretty much every scene in the hangar duel (Dooku, Yoda, etc.) Here you see Obi and Anakin in the Hangar staring at Dooku-

Another angle of Yoda lifting the pillar. I'm sorry if there were too many pics, but I really believe they were necessary to show the scene in all its glory. So here's the final pic-

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it, and enjoyed the...err...Legos. :D I couldn't think of any other way to do that...

nice diorama sidious!
although the sabers are wrong (obi-wan doesn't use his own saber and ani doesn't all of the sudden have his own blue lightsaber, which should have at least been obi's saber according to your beginning)
I know, I'm a smart @$$:D

Haha, I noticed that too. But by the time I had taken the pictures, it was too late and I wasn't going to redo everything just for an almost unnoticable saber handle. I'm glad you like it though.

Also, I did use Obi's own saber because it was metal, and plastic wouldn't stick to the magnet. And his handle is pretty skinny and wouldn't fit in HD Anakins horribly opened hand. I can barely get Mace's fatsaber in that hand, let alone Obi's pencilsaber. The reason the blue saber that came with HD Anakin works is because of that nifty button on the side. Ha! I do have a reason! :D

09-18-2002, 03:05 PM
HD Anakin's left hand isn't huge at all on mine, it can hold a lot of sabers easily
but do you have bespin luke? he has a metal blue saber which actually looks like some generic blue saber (since the detail isn't that good on it)

Darth Sidious
09-18-2002, 03:23 PM
I have Bespin luke. I don't know how but over time Anakin's hand got stretched out very badly...It sucks!

Thats was a very cool diorama of the Hanger Duel you customized, Darth Sidious.:cool: How did you make it?:confused: I'm curious.:D

Darth Sidious

I am glad you like it. :) It was pretty simple to make, actually. I just cut up some brown paper bags and taped them to the sides of boxes, and I spraypainted a piece of poster paper gray. I used simple cardboard tubes for the columns, and I drew doors and control panels and cracks on the walls. Little details like that always help. I used the ASP-7's rods and the cleaning droid from the Tatooine accessory set because they just seemed to fit the scene. The Swoop is in the back, it sort of looks like Dooku's speeder. A clear Lego thingy kept the column up in the scene where it was falling. Then I cut more paper bags into squares and made a roof. Always experiment with lighting and add little details like the saber handles on the ground, they really help. Then add figures, and you have yourself a great diorama. :)

Darth Sidious: I really liked the way you used the Force Lightning effects.

If I got this right: You used one of Palpatine Flashback's for Dooku's initial discharge - then you wrapped R3-T7's around Anakin, right?

Even cooler, was (I think) the Geonosian Warrior's (or JarJar's) eletropole's lightning wrapped around Obi-Wan's lightsaber blade for his blockage of Dooku's Dark Side powers, right?

Very creative! My compliments.:)

Yes, those are the force effects that were used. Although they are occasionally annoying, gimmicks and force effects can be great sometimes. :) I'm glad you liked it, by the way.

Nice diorama. Needs spray paint all over so it doesnt look like paper bags and rolls. :) <--- smartass

That's a really good diorama. Makes me want to start doing some of my own...

Darth Sidious

That's a good idea, Darth Evil. The more dioramas the merrier! :D As for you Hurrikane, what color do you suggest I paint them? Brown?!? Oh, wait, you're banned, nevermind. :evil: Anyway, thanks to all of you for your support, I really appreciate it. :)
