Forest Encounter . On an unnamed planet (happens a lot, doesn't it?), Rebel forces encounter Imperials, and the rest is history. . Happy Mother's Day! While my siblings proceeded to give her things, I was in my LEGO work area, building a tree to go along with the speeder you see here. Still holding it in my hand, I went up to my mom and hugged her, and she declared that the tree was her Mother's Day gift. I'm cool with it; it actually bears some nostalgic significance for her anyhow :)
This diorama is mainly for showing off the speeder, but it was a good learning experience, as I've never really tackled nature in LEGO, and I think the results were better than expected.
"Oh my, R2… why are we always dragged into these messes?!"
A Rebel trooper lies in wait, while a stormie gets shot by a trooper over by the speeder.
Stormies… well, storming the Rebels. I do hope that Rebel is hiding well enough…
A mechanic for the speeder bravely supports the hiding Rebel with his light blaster pistol.
Overhead of the battle. Who shall win??… Rebels, duh…
Ah, LEGO nature, untouched by the soiled hands of war… yet. Wherever a tree is, an ecosystem can thrive. Among the tree is a small, red plant or the flouge flower, some slive plants (pitcher plant-like in appearance) and two big poison gas flowers, which are invasive to this planet and spreading fast. Some ferns are at the base of the mighty tree.
I thank my parents for getting me the MTT, without it this wouldn't be possible. The roots, slope pieces and a lot of the large brown bricks are a direct result of owning it.

Again, Happy Mother's Day, and see you later!
