Starwars jedi-sith vignette
About this creation
My entry for Round 2 in the 2010 MocOlympics!
I guess everyone wants to win so I'm not going to do the whole tirade of my motives and all.
Anyway, here it goes.

Category : Star Wars Vig

My opponent : oucho t cactus
(and his entry)



I wasn’t really fond with my category, 8x8 is incredible small for a builder with an ego as big as mine. I didn’t really have a good idea so I checked out some other vignettes until I stumbled upon This one (click).
Then I remembered the description of my category
“parts of the MOC can go beyond the base border as long as they don't touch ground”
where’s the limit ? with a good lego ® Technic construction you can steadely expand an 8x8 to let’s say 48x48 studs (even more I think but I don’t have enough technic parts to proove that)
Anyway, I decided to stick to an elegant expanded base of 12x12 studs, I used inverted slope bricks. this way I didn’t exaggerate.







a picture of the whole thing (I managed to get the black sheet back :p )




















you can’t set up a Jedi - Sith confrontation on an 8x8, there has te be a bit space between the characters for their mental forces having an invisible fight.





There is the good couragous Jedi on one side and the mysterious shady Sith on the other,
atleast that’s what it was supposed to be.






there are three figures on the scene, the ‘Good’ side has been split in two parts,
there is the experienced wise Jedi Oslek Kram who triggers with fear for the sith (which is infact a path to the dark side) and there is his padawan Adel Tak, young, reckless and in possesion of a lightsaber, what a combo.
Together they compensate their shortages and form a dynamic duo.








However, the ‘Bad’ side is represented by a tall grinning dark warrior, wielding two red lightsabers in strong arms.
















The old Toa heads are a perfect decoration for mystic temples, I'm planning an Atlantis diorama featuring a great underwater temple in this style (bionicle faces, shovel walls,...)



















This microscale spacecruiser is a bit superflues but as it is the starwars theme there must be some kind of science fiction space craft included I think.














Jedi padawan Adel with her lightsaber, as you can see this saber is shorter than the usual ones, I used the bar included in the spaceman minifigure, too bad they didn't gave him a green laser, would have been perfect for Master Yoda

btw, the light filtered through the wall, nice effect won't you agree ?

















The sith and his strong arms, they're actually Belville arms, I've used this technique the first time when I designed my Centaurs for the Legonia project, they can take several positions, very handy for, like example holding a bow (between dragon and blue tetris brick)

















Shoveled wall Commentary
(ok, now I see :p )
-------

So what do you think about my newly develloped "Shoveled Wall" technique ? (the paterned wall)
come on, admit it, it's simply brilliant
I had all of my shovels brought together in this technique.

btw, when I was describing the bad side my first idea was to say “the biggest Mexican I have ever seen. Big as shit. Just walks right in like he owns the place “ (quote from movie Desperado)

Hey Sebeus, ik ben weer eens begonnen aan een groot project. Ik dacht, laat ik eens even bij jou gaan kijken.. ik ben lang niet meer actief geweest hart problemen gehad enzo.. maar iniedergeval.. je hebt me weer inspiratie gegeven om weer iets te doen met Jedi's. Ik hoop iets van je te zullen horen. Groetjes Bo.

Quoting Stuart Delahay Really nice techniques here Seb, love those Belville arms! It's allowed for great posing. Am I the only person who picked up on the Jedi names, or was it so obvious to everybody else they didn't want to mention Kelso and Leda? Congrats on advancing!
yep, I guess you're the only one who noticed the names XD

I don't like SW nor vignettes but this is well amde. You're brilliant. - The 4th wall-commentary originally was a term in comic art. Like in the tv example, ther're 3 directions in a picture and "talking through the 4th wall" means if a character speaks directly to the reader. Later, it's used for all kind of "behind-the-scene"-comments.

Some solid PU there, and a clever way of skirting the 8 studs limitations (my kind of builder! I hate rules!) You've got my vote as well. Nicely done.

Very cool vignette you have here! Love the arm technique you used! Good thing you described how it was done though, I was wondering how you did it.

Congratulations, welcome to Round Three. And if I'm up against you, prepare to feel the pain! :P That temple thing is very clever. The thought has never crossed my mind to use Bionicle heads with System. Great job!

Great job on that Sith and his arms! I never thought of that technique...do they stay on well? Anyways, a good bunch of detail for a small build.

My vote is for you. Of course if your justification for that "suspicious" extension had been ANY feebler, I'd have voted for your opponent...

Nice build; interesting technique for the Sith arms. By the way, the WALL (often refered to as the 'fourth')refers to the imaginary boundary between the magic you see and the mundane mechanics that make it possible. When you watch television, you see three walls, the fourth is behind the camera, what you don't see. I am sure your question was rhetorical, but you DID ask...LOL~H

Nice entry. The shovel technique was a great touch, it added an unique texture. The giant arm guy was cool, but scary at the same time.

Your base expansion seems like a blatant "wangle" to me, but what do I know? XD

Waw, great work, Seb! Good thing I didn't get SW, the thaught alone scares me to death! Hope you get to round 3, good luck with the judges!

I have no idea how you built the wall or what pieces did you use, all I can say that it turned out very beautiful, great work pal.

Two things. One: amazing detail and technique on the wall. Two: the best inventions come from necessity, and this is no exception. In this case, you used an inverted pyramid (I'm sure there's a more geometrically correct term for it...?) to expand the base and you ended up with a very cool-looking pedestal for the MOC. If I may quote Borat: "Great success!"

Wow. That shovel did it. Nice idea for the base expansion too. Good luck, i vote for you.

Well I think you'll win this round but from what I see you deserve it, its really quite a great build and the door is ace but I'm not out yet so let the best man win!

Oucho brought the fight, he did a nice job, but you....get my vote. Your base expansion idea was brilliant and I do love those crazy arms. Good luck with the other judges!

Quoting Mister Bones Non judge comment. Like EKO said, great use of those arms. Makes me want to go buy a Belville set! I will be back to judge you after your opponent posts...mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha
aargh, don't give me that laugh, I'm too nervous :p
