A Small squad of Clones has been sent to Mygeeto to search for an escape pod that crashed in the mountains. The Escape Pod is from a Venator that was destroyed by the CIS and all the Escape Pods were launch, however only one had people in it, and in that one escape pod was a Jedi. The Clones believe they have found the right escape pod, but could it just be an empty one? Or could they just be walking into an ambush?
An overview of the entire Diorama :D I'm quite proud of it!
A sideview... Ah crud, I didn't notice that yellow brick there D:< Oh well, I guess it can just be "Yellow Snow" :P
A back view, and some of the Assassin Droids that are about to attack!
The escape pod itself, I didn't want to go too fancy, but I'm really happy with it :D I just used the escape pod from one of the older Millenium Falcon sets and upgraded it a bit :D I'm really happy with how it turned out :D
A better look at the escape pod.
A back shot of it, inspiration for this part came from watching heaps of Clone Wars episodes :P
The trail that the escape pod left when it crashed, I'm really happy with this :D
Two of the three Assassin droids that are ready to attack!
The Assassin Droid sniper :D
From the snipers point of view :)
The squad for clones walking along the rock bridge :D
A better look at the larger hill/mountain, I'm not too sure what the computer thing is meant to be, but it looks cool :D
More detail on the mountain.
More of the ground, I added some clear bricks for an ice effect :)
Even more of the ground detail...
Now the smaller hill.
An even closer look at the hill, It turned out alright I guess :D
The ice under the bridge!
More snow and rock detail :)
The Diorama without any figs :D
And now without the escape pod :O
Well that's all for now, and before anyone says that 3 assassin droids is a pretty lame ambush, I agree :D Only joking, It is three on three so it's kinda fair and the clones are being taken by surprise! Anyway, I hope you enjoyed it :D Now for some teasers :D
My two next Bionicles (Be afraid Cody G, those are my entries to our MOC-OFF :D) And my next Star Wars athlon entry :D
Ok that's all for now :D
I'm off to work on my entry to Cody's contest and work on some more Star Wars athlon stuff too :D
Hope you liked it!
Don't forget to rate and comment!
Till next time ;)
Hey Ben, I know you mostly do Bionicle builds, but with your skill in landscapes and system builds I was wondering if you would like to be the 5th person representing Team ANZAC in the 2012 Mocathalon? We are one short, and a few of the guys in group have suggested you and I think they are bang on the mark with the suggestion. Please let me know via the convo in the Aussie,NZ builders group. I'll send the invite out to Team ANZAC upon confirmation of of your participation. Cheers, Thoy.
Great work (as always)!!!! I really like....uh.....well.....hmm.....probably the whole thing. Btw the yellow snow is just perfect. I think I know how it got there. I think that the assassins droids are getting kind of nervous. But that's just what I think. Btw meh name's Popcorn NOT gril. Gril looks to much like girl.XP I really like the crashed effect that you added. It gives a good mood to the MOC. Again, GREAT work!!!!!
Very nice Ben! I love the escape pod, and the way you did the crash trail (not exactly sure what to call it :P) was brilliant. And would it be alright with you if I made Cossy? I haven't got Surge yet, but just planning ahead ;)
Thanks guys! HAHA yes Decker, ONE BRICK STUDIO'S FTW!!! Cheers Chopper :D I'm glad you like these :D Oh I remember Aslangorge :D Thanks ;)

I just had to comment on this again since i love it so much! The escape pod really looks like the ones from the shows. AWESOME WROK BEN! :D
P.S. Please don't call me Kane 'Sugar'. Being called that really annoys me. Hope you understand, thanks
Thanks mate! I'm glad you liked it :D I didn't want to add any flames because I wanted it to look like it had been there for a bit (hence the ice over the top) Still, thanks for the advise mate ;) Great to hear from you ;)
Awesome man! Sorry I didn't look at this sooner, I don't know what happened I just never noticed it! Anyway great work :D I love the back of the escape pod, it's so detailed :D Man i wish my creations were as good as this :P I've probabley said that about a thousand times :P That trail is cool, it really gives that effect of crashing that other Dio's similar to this don't have :D one thing that i would have to liked to have seen is a few flames around the pod,k and the pod stuck into the ground at an angle, but other than that, this is great!!! :D
Opps, Sorry mate, I'll stop calling you that :D I thought that was how it was said :/ Thanks for commenting again ;)

Excellent work! When is the next Youtube video????
Thanks a bunch guys :D Cheers Daniel HAHA Pho, it's not A.D :P But thanks for commenting bro ;) Cheers Crazy, Yeah, I try to do 50/50 Bionicle and system, but I never do :/ Still, thanks for the nice comment :D I should have done that with the bridge, thanks ;) Cheers Zam ;) Oh Cody, that has to be the perfect responce :P Glad you like everything :P Cheers L.! It's cool Kane, thanks ;) And thanks Venom ;)
Good to see you pulled out something Star Wars in your relatively long streak of Bionicle (but what the heck, they're all good!). Nice landscaping, and I like the steepness of the mountain and the coloring, the only thing I would do differently is put some slope or thickness into the bottom of the bridge (naturally, it wouldn't come completely flat). Otherwise, great job!
HAHA I remember Commander Fero, thanks a million! I'm glad your comparing me to someone with that much skill :D I'm honoured ;) Thank you Daniel ;) And Cheers Andrew! I do agree with you about the escape pod, I might try that ;) And I agree with you about the assassin droids! Thanks ;)
Awesome,Awesome,Awesome. I love the escape pod thrusters! The landscape is great and the ice effect really succeeded. My only small criticism is that the pod is a little too small. you could try and build a minifig scale one with a bunch of cool inside details as well as outside ones. Great job, your starwars mocs are some of the best! The clones are cool too and the brickarms m16 looks a little odd but at the same time really awesome. I think three assassin droids can destroy three clones any day. Do you see the way they fight in Star Wars the Clone Wars?!?!?! I hate to say it, but those clones are toast. This is a really cool moc! -Andrew
P.S. The yellow snow is funny. :D
Thanks a bunch guys :D And yes Paperweight, he does >:D Thanks a bunch E.K.O ;) Fantasitcanimal? HAHA thanks Teaglestrike ;) Can't wait Kane Sugar :D And wait, I have to build stuff for the Bionicle War? But I'm a judge? I thought I'd just be judging, not entering? Cheers Nathan ;) I'd do that too Liam, TOO BRICKARMS! Thanks again everyone ;)
Not bad, the colors are really nice. Kind of reminds me of, well, a snowcapped mountain. The only thing I would have done differently in this is given a bipod to the droid sniper's rifle. Otherwise, great work!
nice one Ben :D The ground detail is perfect and nice backgroundstory.The pod is cool and the black area behind it makes it really awesome.Cant wait to see these Bionicles and the next entry will be awesome too.I hope my next version of Steamgear will be up today.Ill make photos if i have time
