This year’s May the 4th celebration may all well be over, but this massive Star Wars diorama from Joshua Morris (aka I Scream Clone over at Flickr) will definitely stick in our heads. Working in collaboration with two more members from SydLUG or the Sydney LEGO Users Group in Australia, namely Matthew Lawrence (shnake1973) and legolocodavid, this diorama is an impeccably detailed version of the Mos Eisley Spaceport using 24 base plates. It is one playful rendition of the most dangerous place in Star Wars galaxy. As Morris says it, “You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.” I sincerely doubt if I will skirt around this one.
Staying true to the desert environment of the planet Tattooine, the Mos Eisley Spaceport diorama is jam packed with all the details that shows the wonderfully chaotic world of the meanest scums, villains, and bounty hunters across the galaxy. The buildings and structures are all spot on, as it perfectly captures the architecture unique to the desert planet. Furthermore, Boba Fett couldn’t be happier with the free parking space. What is mind blowing is the fact that this 6 X 4 ft. diorama is just a third of the entire project that Morris and the rest of his SydLUG partners are working on. Here’s a closer look at some of the diorama’s sections, including the details inside the Cantina. A round of applause for the Cantina Band minifigs.
We hope to see Morris and the team from SydLUG complete this ambitious project. You may drop him a note through his Flickr account if you wish to inspire him further. We’ll surely keep tabs with this, so be sure to stay tuned here at the Brick Show!
