Cloud City From Star Wars As A Giant LEGO Build

Cloud City From Star Wars as a Giant LEGO Build

New LEGO Star Wars sets are coming out every year, yet there are still iconic buildings, ships or minifigures missing from the otherwise huge catalogue. Elgiemd's fan-build on LEGO Ideas adds one very important set to the list: Bespin's Cloud City from The Empire Strikes Back.

He imagined it as part of the "Ultimate Collector's Series", which is a subtheme of very large LEGO sets. This means thousands of bricks, a micro scale environment compatible with other large Star Wars sets (just think about the massive Super Star Destroyer) and the best part: tiny versions of Boba Fett's Slave 1, the Millennium Falcon and a few Cloud Cars.

The build is up on Lego Ideas, awaiting supporters. Once it reaches 10,000 votes, LEGO might consider releasing it as an official set.

    It's not that big, geez.

    Mini fig scale, that would be BIG.

    I have some issues with this MOC. the shape doesn't really resemble Cloud City, and the use of 4x1 trans blue tiles almost makes it look like a flying saucer. Plus, the vehicles are wildly over-scaled compared to the main build, and their landing pads are underneath the superstructure, instead of being nestled within the actual 'city' on the dorsal side.

    Plus, this build also suffers from the same problem of many previous SW Lego sets: gravity. A floating structure like this is fine for science fiction, but a physical toy is too unstable to stand on its point, so it needs scaffold (which ruins the look), it was the same problem with the official Pod-Racer sets that used unsightly struts to hold the engines and pod together.

    I admire the craft and details, but Cloud City is a very tough build.
