About this creation
2013 MOCOlympics Round 4:
Blake Baer (me) vs. David .

Category: Demolition Man, Star Wars Episode 6: Return of the Jedi, The Matrix

Hey all,

Another entry for the MO, this one requires me to choose one of the above movies, and build a scene from it. I chose to build a scene from the air battle of Endor, specifically, I chose to build the view from the cockpit in the Millennium Falcon during the battle. For those who need to brush up on the scene, here is an excellent video of just the space battle.



This MOC presented a lot of challenges inherit in the engineering of the cockpit and composition for the picture. I got to use some fun techniques that have been on my workbench for a while, especially in getting the curvature both accurate and appealing. In addition, building the X-Wings, Tie Fighters, and Star Destroyers from scratch was difficult, but very fun. Sometimes we castle builders really need to branch out of our boring landscapes and get some more action in Sci-Fi. I had a lot of fun with this build, and I hope you all like it.

Good luck David! Thanks judges.
SOLI DEO GLORIA!
-Blake

That's an impressive job! The scaling allows you to give the creation depth without having to put an X-wing 8 feet away. I didn't recognize the SSD until seeing the panned out view. Nice way to fit that in on the corner.

Total awesomeness! Fantastic entry Blake! The different scalings of the ships is just too cool! The inside of the Falcon really tops this off as an awesome entry! The way you achieved the forced perspective is great. Awesome job getting the full "pause button" effect. Excellent work!

Nice work Blake! Well executed indeed. Were you, by any chance, influcenced by that build from the view of an F-15 fighter cockpit? I forget who built it, but this is dry similiar to that.....

So Star Wars is always my ultimate sci-fi love, and this is possibly my favorite LEGO representation of the series. Everything is so accurate, and there is some nice brick-built features in there. I thought at first that some of the scene was borrowed from actual footage, until I took a closer look and doubled how impressed I was. So great, Blake. And from a faithful sci-fi builder, it's nice to see your unique talent applied to something more from my neck of the woods.

Blake, once again, you have astounded me. By far, one of the best forced perspective, and most interesting designs. Reminds me of Sean and Steph Mayo's Iron Builder entry "Fast and Furious", except with your own unique style. Well done, and congrats on advancing! I wish you the very best of luck.

Wow. Great choice for a scene, and realised with jaw-dropping skill. I think you must be the king of curvature (one of the advantages of being a castle builder?) See you in Round 5!
