This LEGO Star Wars Trench-Run Is One In A Million

While I'm impressed by the attention to detail in this re-creation of Star Wars' iconic last ditch torpedo-shot (as displayed at the Brickworld LEGO convention and photographed by Peter Mowry), I'm almost more impressed with how effectively it captures the mess of grey junk that covers the exterior of the Death Star.

    I’m almost more impressed with how effectively it captures the mess of grey junk that covers the exterior of the Death Star.

    Then you should watch it again, because while the Death Star's surface isn't exactly uniform or smooth, it's not so inconsistently 'busy' as that model. Also note how the 'floor' of the trench here is also completely flattened vs the film version. The owner had a bunch of mini-scale ships, a truckload of grey bricks and went overboard with the greeblies.

    mmm I can criticise it because I have actually built one for Brickvention last year...I think the greebling is a bit overdone and the trench floor was not flat...also, though may start a flame war, the exhaust port was only was not vertical as shown there...

    Here's mine...

    (and mine had the Falcon swooping in!)

      A non-flat trench floor would make for hard miniature battles. Plus I always thought from the movies and the games that the exhaust port was at a 45 degree angle?

        Mine was about 30 degrees based on the computer simulation that was shown to the pilots on Yavin during the briefing.

      Nice to see a fellow Aussie AFOL and I love your MOC. I wish I could participate in more fan events, but most of us in Sydney just lurk EB.

      Huh, I read the word 'DATE' on your trench wall? Why?
