I built this vignette entry to the CABG Lost Unit Contest back in November of 2008. It shows three levels inside the Death Star and depicts two Storm Troopers finding a very lost unit...
About this creation
One of my older mocs again. Don't flame me for the poor photographing/editing! The vig depicts three different levels within the first Death Star. The top level shows two Shadow Troopers strolling down a walkway presumably near a superlaser focusing station. The middle level shows a Stormtrooper standing guard within a hallway, watching a mousedroid pass by. The lowest level is a cargo storage unit, with two stormtroopers inspecting old, unknown, or unnecessary cargo.
A side shot of the vig. From the bottom baseplate to bellow the railing, it stands about 18 bricks high.
Back shot of the moc. This plate was really the only overhand I had on the vig. I tried to make it look like this little 8x8 vignette square was cut directly from within the Death Star, but the doorway I made in the middle level needed a door... and that was my best solution.
The two Shadow Troopers stroll down the walkway, engaging in typical on-duty conversation.
"... you saw that terrific explosion when we last fired the superlaser at that star system that started with an 'A' right?"
TK-5463 watches another mouse droid scurry down the hallway as he stands guard. He thinks to himself, "one of these days I'm going to blast one of those damn things..."
(Down in the cargo storage unit, two troopers inspect a large crate.)
TK-4420 "That's a strange symbol... what do you think's inside this one?"
TK-3210 "I'm not sure. The Empire likes to store a lot of creepy stuff down here. Let's scan it anyways."
TK-3210 "The scan says that it's some sort of crate from the Old Republic Army."
TK-4420 "Well that's helpful..."
TK-3210 "The Grand Moff wanted us to clean this place up a little. This one seems pretty useless; let's take a look inside?"
TK-3210 "What in the Sarlacc..?!"
"CT-6776 reporting for duty! Where're the clankas!?"
TK-4420 "Has this happened before?!"
TK-3210 "Well we stumbled on a larger crate of these guys last year..."
CT-6776 "Alright men, who's the commanding officer here and what's the current situation?!"
TK-4420 "Ok you're going to have to lower that blaster."
CT-6776 "Nonsense. We're in war! Get behind some cover men, there could be clankas anywhere!"
TK-3210 "Uh yep that's correct sir. We've found another old misplaced Republic troop transport unit down here in Cargo Storage."
Overview of the vig. I forgot to mention I added pipes, support beams, wires, etc between each floor.

super funny! I love the comment with the mouse droid. What's the use for 'em anyways?
I always thought they were fairly useless, annoying, and just objects to take up space/movement in the movies, but they're actually highly effective security/spy robots. Learned that after a little Wookieepedia research ;)
This is quite funny. The detail is amazing on the bottom part of the vig. I made a CABG group on here if you want to join it, I know how much of a pain it is to get all these group requests so I will not feel offended if you decline.
This is hilarious! I love it :) It's like the imperial occupation ladder: at the top are elite troopers going for a stroll, below them is your standard issue stormie, and at the bottom are the guys sorting through boxes. Great work, keep it up!
