Okay, a few quick thoughts:
Definitely agree with Chewie about Han staying in the room. Frankly, everyone's reaction is way too restrained for what was obviously an assassination attack. They should really have reacted more seriously, have taken greater precautions, have asked more questions....I also find it hard to believe that there aren't dozens of empty rooms in Dralco's massive mansion/palace. I understand why you made your choices, for the sake of expediency, but it stretches plausibility just a bit.
Now, here's what I never want to see in another one of your scenes: A big empty space like that hallway in the palace.
Granted, I have no idea how many Lego sets you own or what kind they are. Granted, Legos are very expensive, so I'm not trying to advocate that you rush out and blow your money on buying new things.
However, they're LEGOS, man! I want to see some furniture! I want you to "dress your sets" more completely. I want to see plants or chairs or statues or art or something....There are countless Lego sets in existence from all across the universe - from "Star Wars" to "Anytown USA", from "Harry Potter" to Pirates to whatever....and if you don't have stuff, just build your own from spare parts. The hallway looked very sparse, even for a hallway.
With my own photnovels, I have often struggled to find enough "stuff" (props and set dressing) to use. SW hardly makes any large accessories or furniture. I have a few cruddy doll house pieces (expensive), a few Playmobil pieces (expensive, too) and the usual stuff like the outlander furniture, jedi council chairs, etc.
But legos are small and they're building blocks! So throw some more stuff in that big empty room.
The Star Destroyer, by contrast, looks really great and you've clearly done a terrific job in creating that environment. So try to flesh out the other areas, too.
Anyway, keep up the great work, I eagerly await the next installment!
