Thought I'd like to tell anyone who's interested a little about my hobby, and discuss it with those who do things similar. Some interesting tidbits of what characters we still need made, as well as who needs a resculpt, are brought up in the discussion, scene by scene.
This thread is about E2 dioramas based on events that took place on Coruscant.
I've actually got quite a lot planned. Unfortunately, space does not permit me to build ANY of these until I buy a large enough house. There I intend to have a "black room" that has all things metallic, synthetic, and would include dioramas from Coruscant to the Death Star and scenes on Imperial Star Destroyers, as well as hopefully, one day, a Star Destroyer ship/playset (way offscale, but functional) that I'll build like my Blockade Runner (whcih may or may not also end up in this room). I figure it is a good room to wire up my A/V system in and use as a home theater, since stereo components are also usually black, and it will blend in with black couches and everything. Well, that's the dream.
Now the scenes from Attack of the Clones that are specific to Coruscant that will go in there:
1) Landing Platform Assasination.
2 Naboo Royal Guards
Padme Pilot figure
I'd like a Corde figure (dressed as the Senator of course) and a green / white R2 unit that would serve as Captain Typho's astromech. Hopefully Hasbro will make this droid soon, as it also serves as Wedge Antilles' droid's colors, too I believe.
I doubt that Hasbro will make the Senator's starship for the 3 3/4" figures, nor do I want that in my scene (though I'd buy the toy and re-write my plans for this scene if they did, as it was an awesome ship).
I think I'll use a hanging window box and add in a background shot of a Naboo fighter on the landing platform and maybe some smouldering wreckage.
I plan on keeping the scene tight because it's mainly to exhibit my Padme Pilot figure which I appreciate a lot, and get Captain Typho a scene where he's not underscored by the Jedi stars or aliens or something. A Corde figure is not such a longshot, though I don't know if we'll get her as soon as 2004, or if she'll be a figure we struggle with like it's been a struggle to get Jan Dadonna. I certainly would see there being some complaints if Corde was made before many of Padme's still-missing outfit changes, however, Corde does obviously fit into a scene where most of the other figures already exist, and she'd do well to compliment them.
Anyone else interested in recreating this particular scene before I discuss a Palpatine's Office diorama?
