On Dantooine, the Grand Army of the Republic faces off against the Separatists

It’s sometimes tempting to dismiss LEGO models that make use of hundreds of the same part as doing nothing more than showing off the builder’s budget or a visit to the Pick-a-Brick wall.

Regardless of the source for the levers and Technic pins, the waving alien plant life in this Star Wars diorama by Kevin Murney (legorevolution) combines with some great details for a wonderful overall effect.

Note the edges on the wreckage of the clone troopers’ downed Republic Gunship, as well as the swath through the grass created by the dark Jedi’s thrown lightsaber.
