"NO! That's not true. That's impossible!"
"Search your feelings, you know it to be true." "Join me, and together, we can rule the galaxy as father and son! Luke, it is the only way." "Nooooo!"
"Hey you know kid, if you run away again, we aren't going to Disney-world. So I better see you on the Executer at 0700 hours."
"I'd rather go to Legoland anyways!"
"He must have gotten this from Padme. 'Cause I certainly didn't want to go to Legoland in my youth. I wanted to go to Waterworld. I mean, I didn't take a single bath in nine years."
Here we are, final round. For this round the category was 'Anything Star Wars'. And I looked at that and said to myself, "Anything? Anything? But if there are no limitations, you want me to choose one scene out of 25,000 years of Star Wars history?!?!" So I decided, I've got to build something iconic. But since we are leaving for vacation tomorrow, I had no where near enough time to go big. So I went small, on the 30th anniversary of the most influential scene in the entire saga. (you do know it's been 30 years since Empire, right?) I tried to get in as many details as possible, like the lightsaber with hand still attached drifting down the shaft. The Tibanna collector might be a little inaccurate, because I didn't have time for full-scale online research, so I just opened The Art of The Empire Strikes Back and built the scene from concept art.
^Here's a rehoot of the 'I am your father' shot, but using all LEGO parts. No customs or altered parts used.
^Here's a reshoot of the 'That's Impossible!' photo, but with the new scared face print. I'm not sure which one is better. This face definitely shows more expression, but since Luke is wearing civilian clothes in this scene, he's not as easily recognizable.
By the way, about how I cut off the end of the wind vane, I was originally going to sit this at a 45-degree angle inside a LEGO shadowbox. But I didn't because I used up almost all my gray on something else. Something big....

Aweesome! I've actually been planning on building this scene in mini-fig scale, but...! Anyway, too bad you don't have the actual Luke Bespin outfit (I do ha ha) I like the look of the platform.
Thanks! I'd actually like to see your take on it. I believe the Bespin outfit comes in some City sets as well, but this was a one-hour throw together while I was packing for a trip.... I think it turned out pretty well, but the platform on the wind vane lacks proper greebling.
