The Defense of Echo Base
A diorama showing the Imperial troops and Darth Vader storming the Rebel base on Hoth (from The Empire Strikes Back) and Han, Leia and C3PO's attempts at escape!
About this creation

Vader and his troops enter the base (note the dead rebel on the floor behind them)


A Probe droid takes on the rebels (Yes I know there wasn't a probe droid in the base attack, but the is my own creation ;) )


The rebels set up a defense. The smiley guy makes me laugh, grinning like an idiot and pointing his gun in the wrong direction!


Another view.


The top level.


Leia nearly becomes an ice princess!


Threepio tries to catch up to Han and Leia :)


Without the figs. (apart from K3PO - I forgot him...)

Quoting El Barto ! Great dio, and in such a small space, so much going on. I was wondering if the light is Lego or an LED or what you used?
Thanks, the lights are just standard Power Functions Lego lights.

The best lego stuff are the scenarios: This is EXACTLY like in the movie, even with real lamps! How did you get the pieces, pick-a-brick or from your own collection? And btw I know where u got the lamps.

Quoting Blake Ewton Big fan! Well done! Love the attention to detail with the cables. And the lights add SO much to the model. What kind of lights did you use if I might ask? Great work!

Quoting Jake Dillon How did you get those snowtroopers? Also what if you make a echo base hanger.
I bought two copies of 7666 - Hoth Rebel base. You can get them cheaper now in the New Echo Base set. I dont really have the space or patience to do an Echo Base Hanger :)

Whoa, this is fantastic! I love how this is so movie accurate! The tubes, everything is just flawless. Where did you get the lights? Are they life lites or something else? I'm acutally building and Echo Base right now, its gonna be huge!(Congrats, your the first one to find out!) And I was hoping I could use your idea for the hallways, doorways etc. Just leave me a comment some time! Thanks

Your metachlorian count is higher than any of the other Lego Jedis I've seen. I believe you are the Chosen One to bring balance to the scales that weigh good SW MOC's and bad ones. Thanks for making such an excellent Echo Base!

I agree with Shannon Ocean, LEGO Group needs to step it up and start producing more quality products like this. As a set, this would FLY off the shelves! Seriously, great work here. I too will be adding this to my list of 'favs'. And seriously, thank you for building 'GOOD' Star Wars. ...its about time we got some of that around here! ~dave
