This is my entry for the empire strikes back contest. Did you guys actually think i would do anything other than Hoth? Hoth is AWESOME!
About this creation
The mighty AT-AT!
The Rebel trenches.
The shield generator.
The trenches again from another angle.
Another AT-AT. This one is being hog tied by a snow speeder.
AT-ST. I know. It sucks XD
This is Lego's Snow Speeder design. I tried to build a good looking mini but it didn't work out.
I know this technically didn't happen in this scene but the top of echo base was looking barren. Han And Chewie spying on the probe droid.
The rebel dish turrets. I tried to get the handles straight but elastics wouldn't fit and couldn't think of anything else, so i left them alone.
The inside of Echo Base.
The left side. You can see a couple of rebels and some other mini things. More on those later.
A mini Millennium Falcon!
Overhead of the whole battle.
Alright, now we'll take a look at some of my minis without the diorama. first is the AT-AT's. These are my absolute favorite part of this entire moc. In fact, i love them SOOOOO much that i am going to share them with the world! That's right folks, I did instructions for them. They are available at the bottom of this page! (Please give credit if you use it) You might notice though, Some pieces are different. This is because LDD doesn't have every pieces in every color and it doesn't support some connections. Sorry.
Here is the crappy AT-ST.
The Millennium Falcon.
Back of the Millennium Falcon
A mini TaunTaun!
And a mini Rebel Transport train. Kind of like the one that comes with the X-wing set.
Great diorama! I had a thought about your turret dish and how it needs handles. I thought about using the mini figure binoculars, I use those on my mini machine guns to give them more of a look. Its just a thought, but it is an amazing piece!
I almost died laughing when I saw the Tauntaun! It was an excellent effort, but I'm pretty sure that it didn't come out the way you wanted it to. :) Everything else was fantastic, even the AT-ST! I'm more impressed with the diorama than with the minis themselves. Keep on brickin'!
I love all the vehicles, they were all done really accurately. I do think the Millennium Falcon could have been little larger, but it's great how it is. The Taun-Taun was certainly a new idea for micro-scale Hoth Battles, I've never seen one before. I think one of my favorite parts though was how the Snow Speeder was tying up the AT-AT, it had a great effect!
That's an AWESOME moc- hoth battle is so classic- but since everyone is going to make it- I am not I will do another ESB-scene for the contest (you mean the one in movie mocs I suppose?)-
anyway i doubt that this will be hard to beat at least what comes to miniscaling your awesome designs and ideas are sooo great-
only thing could be better is At-At:s feet -they need toes kind of -well thats almost impossible to do i know... also some tower turrets with those awesome dishturrets could be great....
but everything else in this is just perfect (i actually like that At-St) falcon, hangar, tauntaun- awesome mini moc i give full 5 despite those tiny things i mentioned- this is perfection!
Don't be so hard on yourself. Trying to build micro-mini is by far the most difficult scale to build in. Capturing iconic looks with the minimum number of pieces is a LOT more of a challenge than building large. The snow speeder, Falcon, AT-AT, & AT-ST all look great!!!
AT-AT being hog tied by a T-47 huh... You know some senators pay extra for stuff like that. Great dio Jason! Everything came together perfectly on this one. The Hoth battle is one of my favorite scenes in the entire saga! Thanks for sharing! ~ Chris.
hey that is great. the best mini hoth i have seen.others have small imperfections that dont help it. but yours is much better. the snowspeeder looks great and it is at the correct height. and the atst looks good but i would angle the foot conection back about to 45 degrees. but great moc
Awesome mini scene! All details and mini models are just great, especially the Millenium Falcon inside the base. The AT-ST isn't cr&p&y at all, I love the flexible legs. The only thing that bothers me a bit, is that the AT-AT's rear legs turn outwards, which isn't seen in the movie (I think), only in the motorized Lego version. However, I really have to come up with something cool to have a chance in the contest :)
really awesome,super war scene of the future ,,,great
I like it

I'm not going to be like the ones who go , "oh, there arent that many turrets", or " oh, if it was hog tied, then it should be on fire". your creations are just amazing! the attention to detail is sweet, and your mini's are better than Moodswims! whenever you make a Moc, I just get sooooo excited, because yours are the best! I'm working on some new clone funnies, and your gonna be in em'. I was also wondering, if you could check out my creations, sorry for asking, there not as good as yours, but their O.K. Bravo Jason, Bravo!
Wow! You got this built fast! Awesome mini scene! I love all the details you put into the base including the mini Falcon. I love those AT-ATs. My only suggestion would be to make the feet slightly bigger. If you look at the movie design of the AT-ATs, the feet are almost the same size as the head. Besides that, this is sweet! Good luck in the contest (like you need it)!
