Epic Hoth Battle Scene

Postby Staff » Sat Feb 26, 2011 1:53 am





Didn't make it to LEGO World? Neither did I, but I wish I was there to drink in this incredible Hoth display by supersteendk. Featuring moving speederbikes, snowspeeders, and walking AT-AT Walkers, it definitely rivals the efforts of Brickplumber and his Echo Base display.

It's certainly neat, but this is no comparison to Brickplumber's model. This one has a nicer snowfield, but the inside of the hanger is bland and the use of official models rather than customs for the AT-ATs is a major detriment. Look at the way those machines tower over everything in !

I'm sorry, but Steen didn't do this one.
Supersteendk is just Bo's friend who've uploaded that video to YouTube.

I've got a video and pics here:

Anyone know how they came up with the 1,500,000 brick estimate? I'm guessing it's about 6-8 baseplates wide, and 12-16 baseplates long. Even at 8x16 (128 baseplates), that 1.5 million bricks winds up being an average of over 11,000 pieces per baseplate of area. That would be like cramming more than 2 UCS Millennium Falcons onto every basplate! My guess for this model was more like in the 200,000 piece ballpark.

The part count is an estimate by the builder himself.
The whole diorama weighs about 750 kilograms -
Not sure how much a regular 2x4 brick weighs, but that could be what he used to estimate the amount of bricks.

Plus do consider that this thing has a train track build in - it's not just built on a baseplate, there's a skeleton build that holds a train track and on top of that you have the snowy build. So that could easily up the amount of bricks pretty fast.

He (the builder) usually knows what he's talking about, so if he says around 1.5 mill bricks, then I believe it.

I like it...particularly the motorized aspects. The snowpeeder cam was a lot of fun. I cringe at seeing all of that white brick exposed to direct sunlight though. ;)

These are both epic, there's just no arguing that.

Put brickplumber's hangar at the end of the other diorama and you would have the ultimate über Hoth display. The YouTube diorama is something you would find on display at TRU in Manhattan at Christmas - or something like that! It's just mesmerizing, there's so much going on, and the embedded train track is pure genius...I've never seen LEGO Train and SW melded like that. It's staggeringly cool. The use of system sets does not at all detract from the WOW factor, IMHO. BP's hangar is superior, but all the action out on the snow field makes the other dio literally come alive...I might like that better.

While I like this whole setup with the motorized speeders and the textured snowfield, the whole thing is killed once you see those sickly motorized AT-ATs attempting to lurch across the table. Seriously, what a horrendous set that is If he's going to use official sets, I would have invested in a couple 4483 AT-ATs rather than four of the atrocious motorized ones. It actually looks like a sick camel crawling at you. Other than the four legs it looks nothing like an AT-AT should. But still nice work on the diorama!

I'm forced to agree on the walking AT-ATs, as much as I'm a fan of anything Hoth, the motorized walkers never appealed to me for that reason. But that's not his fault...he's probably just holding out for the UCS walking AT-AT like me XD

No comparison to Brickplumber's works. However, very few compare to those amazing dios. I like all the vehicles moving around, it really brings everything to life.

I found this simply jaw-dropping with the snowfield and all of the moving parts. Although I wish he had used MOCs, or at least had modded his sets instead of using 100% official sets.

The beauty of a LEGO MOC is not the elements that go into it, but the way those elements are put together.

As I look at this, I think holy cow that is a great model. I then panic as I see a wall of windows and I am wonderin how long it will take for the white bricks to all turn yellow? He needs UV filter on those windows.
