About this creation
The newly modified Tantive IV flies through space on route to Tatooine.
Captain Rick Kilon is at his desk, waiting for Luke to arrive.
Luke: You called me, captain.
Kilon: Yes I did, I need you to go on a mission on Tatooine. It seems that Jabba’s palace is up and running again – we don’t know who by though. We need you to kill them, whoever they are!
Luke: Wow, hold your bantha a sec, that seems a little mean doesn’t it. They haven’t done anything to you.
Kilon: We can’t take any risks with this one, he smells like trouble. Anyway, the mission requires great stelth and ninja-ism. For that reason we need to do something about your hair-
Luke: My hair, sure thing! I’ll go dye it black, that’s stealthy.
Kilon: That’s not quite what I meant, I, ah forget it…
Half an hour and 15 minutes for drying later…
Kilon: What I meant was –
Luke: You want me to slick it back? OK!
*ruffle ruffle ruffle*
Luke: You like?
Kilon: Is that wash out dye?
Luke: Yeh, why?
Kilon: Now go to the ships barber and get that thing cut!
Luke: But you can’t get rid of my Justin Bieber!
Kilon: Just go!
Luke: I hate you.
Kilon: Put that behind you. Now, on your journey you will encounter lots of traps set up to stop you from getting to the palace so we’ve got for you the best in trap identifying technology: I give you…
Kilon: The Ackbar!
Kilon: Activate hologram route planner.
Kilon: OK, the red pillar shows where we are about to land. The brown building is the palace. You’d think we could just walk through the front door? Wrong. The blue dots show where gaurds, scouts and anti air rockets are located. We are not going over ground.
Kilon. Out in the sands is a secret door – it leads to the old underground passages of Jabba’s palace. They became un-used when all of the palace’s workings were built on top of it.
Luke : Why doesn’t everyone just break in underneath then?
Kilon: All of the passages are heavily booby-trapped. The grey line shows the route of the person who made it the furthest through the passages. Ackbar will guide you and identify the traps. Good luck!
Luke gets out onto the sands. He is communicating with Ackbar via a headset, who can also see what Luke sees via a micro head cam.
Luke: The palace is miles away!
Luke: So hot, so hot.
Luke: Wow, whose that in the distance?
Ackbar: I can’t see anyone.
Luke: Ahhhhhhhhh! A mummy! Fight me mummy!
Ackbar: Luke, you’re hallucinating! There’s no mummy! You’re fighting thin air.
Luke continues walking.
Luke: Wow, Ackbar, this looks like a plane crash! Oh some smelly old people - my favourite!
Romoin: Look, brother! A traveller!
Luke: Urrrrgh, space vampires!
Romoin: You are quite wrong, we are Juradions. I am Romoin and this is my bearded brother Derx. Our plane got shot down here and now we're stranded.
Luke: Hey, what's that tatty old ball of material there?
Romoin: That is the shrunken head of some bloke who called himself "Space Gypsy".
Luke: I've been quite rude, I nearlly forgot, I am Luke Skywalker and I am very pleased to meet you.
Romoin: Do you happen to have a flare in your pocket, we need to launch one and get someone to rescue us.
Luke: I do, I'll just get one out...
Luke: I'll just light it with my lightsaber...
Derx: WOW! You have a lightsaber! Me too!
Derx: It's just the force isn't too strong with me. My weapon's all floppy!
Luke: I'll get you started.
*Jedi powers, jedi powers*
Derx: Cool, now it's all stiff!
Luke: Yeh, but mine's still bigger than yours!
Romoin: Now boys, don't start!
Romoin: Thank you greatly! Give me a hug my new friend!
Ackbar: I wouldn't Luke, I bet his jacket is completely lined with explosives!
Luke: Don't be silly Ackbar, this guy's a friend!
Luke: See, Ackbar...
Luke: AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! Aw few, I was only dreaming. I was – AH POO! I’M MEANT TO BE ON A MISSION!
Luke: BYE GUYS!
Luke: Hey look, a switch!
Ackbar: OK, this is where the traps begin: pull it and you’ll drop down to a passage.
Luke: Where am I?
Ackbar: These are the old palace prison cells.
(OK, from now on the text is ABOVE each picture :P)
Luke: Hey, a door. I’ll go through once I’ve got the old prison guard out of the way…
Ackbar: Don’t even think about it!
Ackbar: See that metal leg – it’s a switch. It’ll set off a bomb or something.
Luke: Wow, you’re good at this.
Ackbar: And don’t step on any loose tiles. They are pressure sensitive – they are linked to some old droids that are programmed to shoot you down.
Luke: Ah, I see.
Luke: Now how’d I open this door…
Wall*E: Oi you walley, look over here, at Wall*E!
Wall*E: I can open the door for you, I AM the door guard.
Luke: Thanks. Hey, do I know you from somewhere? Were you from a Pixar film? Oh, I got it – Toy Story.
Wall*E: Toy Story? Gar! I’ll just open the door…
Luke: Thanks, it’s much appreciate-
Wall*E: Stick ‘em up, fool!
Wall*E: This is my friend ‘James-with-the-gun-in-the-window’ Now he’s gonna shoot you if you don’t hand over all your credits!
Luke: Run away!
Wall*E: Ah, James. You missed him! We nearly had ourselves another friend. *sigh* So, what do you want to do tonight – charades again…
Ackbar: *fuzzle* Luke! *fuzzle* The signals getting really bad *fuzzle* and I don’t know where you are.
Luke: Oh! The bounty room!
Luke: I guess this Hutt likes to keep his bounty close to him…
Rotta: Ah, Skywalker you’ve decided to join me! I am Rotta the Hutt if you didn’t already know! Come closer, so I can talk to you properly.
Ackbar: *fuzzle* I wouldn’t If I were you *fuzzle*
Luke: Rotta the Hutt, I have come to kill you!
Luke drops his cape and reveals his lightsaber. Boba and the Gammorean step into action…
Rotta: Men, weapons down. This Jedi is pathetic!
Ackbar: *fuzzle* I think you’re on a trapdoor *fuzzle* IT’S A TRAP!!!
Luke: What’s that Ackbar? It’s a RAP? A rapper? Why so it is…
Diggy: Yo yo yo! This is Digby Edward Ethan Dogma, or Dig Ed. E. Dog to ma crew, in da house!
Diggy: Now, I have a special rap for our very own Luke-y boy here! Give it up – WOOOO!
1, 2, 3, 4!
(sing to the tune of ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ :D)
Now, this is the story all about how
Luke’s life got flipped-turned upside down
If you’ve got two hours
Then go watch the flick
But if you hear my song then you’ll know it all quick
On da planet Tatooine born and raised
On the vapour farm was where he spent most of his days
Chillin' out relaxin' all that is legit’
And shootin some sand rats outside of da pit
There’s a couple of jawas
Who were up to no good
Started stealin’ droids in the neighbourhood
He met this one old guy and his name was Ben
He said 'You're father was a Jedi and here’s his weapon'
They paid for a ride from a guy who was slick
The ship was real tatty but boy it went quick
If anything he can say is that this guys a player
And he thought 'Let’s go at this' - 'We gotta save Leia'
They flew to the Death Star it’s a storm trooper nation
And then they said 'it’s not a moon it’s a space station'
They picked up the princess
And blew up that star
They flew back to Yavin and shouted ‘Hazzar!’
Ackbar: Luke step off that door!
(from now on, the text goes with the picture BELOW it, sorry :D)
Luke: Ow! How did I end up in this pit 2 times!
Luke: At least that rotten meat broke my fall.
Luke: Here goes – bring it on Rancor!
Rotta: Release him, release the Ran…
Rotta: That joke never gets old! Now, release the real (now armoured) Rancor!
Church Bells chime - *DONG…DONG…DONG…DONG…DONG*
The music from ‘Titanic’ plays.
Luke: What? You thought I was dead? No, I just slipped on this spilt Cherry-aid. Err, can someone come and clean this up?
Rotta: Cleaner to pit 7 please!
Luke: About time, I’m not fighting the Rancor until this is cleaed up.
*scrub scrub scrub*
Cleaner: Here, have 5 credits to send at the palace bar, courtesy of Rotta the Hutt.
Luke: OK, bring it on Rancor…
Thanks for viewing! I hope you liked it judges and sorry about the text positions, it’s just some of my pictures wouldn’t upload and I had to keep changing where the text was :D
This took me a very long time to build and I am very tired now. I had to build:
- A mini Tantive IV
- Captain’s desk
- The prison cells
- The droid repair room
- Lots of figures
- And the main event, Jabba’s palace. It does have a play feature: by pulling a lever behind Rotta the trapdoor drops, but you couldn’t see that very well :(
See you later and if you liked it, drop me a comment ;)
LOL story.I didn't get the Space Gypse joke until now.It wasn't until I knew about Flare that I understood the 'Flare' joke:P.Don't you just love Walle?I do;he's one of the most likely to end up in random crowds in my MOCs.You haven't made any funny stories lately.You should do that some time.
LOL after LOL, especially for Luke's hair...XD Plus the use of the clown's hair for the nuke explosion was very creative...
The funny thing is that SOOOOO many Ahsokas end up getting orange legs and being transformed into slaves or dancers cmon isn't there another use for her? The next thing someone's gonna do is use Aayla... -.- But anyways nice MOC :D
- Hardly any money for new stuff: Hmmm, I'd use your money wisely whe buying Lego. The best thig to do is buy Creator sets if you need more pieces (they have the best price per piece. Also look on Brickset.com at sets because that tells you the price per piece). Otherwise, get a job :D
- Storgage: I use these massive crates (I have 4 of them) which I can stack on top of eachother in the corneer of my room. They are really helpful as I only take up the space of one of them on the floor.
- Organisation: I have't organised my collection yet. I just keep my smaller system bricks in one crate, larger system bricks in another crate, and the other 2 hold Bioicle and Technic. I'm planning on organising my stuff soon though. Firstly, I'm going to organise it into type of piece, and then if I'm not bored out of my mind, organize those piles into colours.
- Planing out a MOC: It depends on what you want to build. When building a story MOC like this one, I usally think up the story when walking home from school and then I build the main structure from it. From there, I build the smalller scenes and extra bits around it. Finally, before taking pictures, I make the figures to go with it. If I'm building a spaceship, I build the cockpit and body first then work outwards. If I'm building a land vehcile, I make the chassis first and build up. If I'm making a buildinng, well, that just kind of comes to me :D
Hope that helps!
P.S. Thank you!
Very Cool!!! (Hi George, i'm 14 just like you, i have 4 other siblings. Because of this, i hardly have any storage space, money for new Lego stuff and time for MOC's I was windering if you could give me any tips on storage, organization, and planning out how to build A MOC. P.S. I added you as one of my fav. builders.)
