The alien invaders have taken Lady Liberty as a trophy for conquering the US. :cry_sad: Other monuments across the globe have been ransacked but may become available on gBay (g- galaxy).

To instill fear amongst the humans minifigs, those dastardly aliens have left a lifesize replica of one of their most fearsome warriors, Arnold. :sick:

Is this the end for Earth as we know it ? who will rise up and save the day ? Where's Will Smith when you need him ? :hmpf:

The (extremely rich) sleepyhead has bought himself a brand new super huge 3D TV, and is spending all his time on the couch in his pyjamas in front of it.

The ski jump is modeled after "Holmenkollbakken", the ski jump in Holmenkollen in Oslo. For reference pic, see here: http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fil:Holmenkollbakken_14_march_2010.JPG

The S6 figure is the sleepyhead.

Finishing Touches

Theme: City

Minifig - Series 4: Artist

Minifig - Series 6: Lady Liberty

Architecture: Liberty Island / Statue of Liberty

The artist stood back to admire his work. He'd been commissioned to create this scale model of the Statue of Liberty for the museum's new exhibition and it was nearly complete. He'd finally finished applying the base colors and now all that was needed were a few finishing touches.

Battle plans

Minifigure 1: Series 4 Viking

Minifigure 2: Series 6 Celtic Warrior

Theme: Historic

So, here's my entry for cat. B.

A team of warriors is planning an attack on the castle of the landlord, as he is not very kind to his people.

The build shows the discussion of battle strategies between the chiefs of the surrounding villages on a scaled model of the castle.

The Celtic Warrior has to stand on the stud.

(The castle, with all it's buildings, is based on the pc game Stronghold. Which I used to play back in the days)

Toxic Cleanup

Minifig 1-Series 6 sleepyhead

Minifig 2-Series 4 hazmat

Theme- Town

The sleepyhead is so fast asleep that he is unaware of the toxic gas leaking through a broken pipe in his room. He sleeps through the hazmat troops coming to rescue him and clear up the mess.

The sleepyhead is meant to go on the bed in the house. I don't actually have him so you have to use your imagination.

Past Series: Gangster

This Series: Flamenco dancer

Architecture style: Art Deco

100_1919-800.jpg

This Flamenco dancer (inside the box) had a bit of "misunderstanding" with the family. Therefore a few "movers" were sent out to pick up some "instruments" from the nightclub where she works.

100_1924-800.jpg

100_1923-800.jpg

Without the minifigs

100_1925-800.jpg

The building is loosely based on the historic nightclub The Paramount built in the 1930's in Shanghai. The car is art deco style too.

The Irish round rowers were built during the 9th to 12th century and served as bell towers and/or places of refuge. These times were troublesome for the Irish people as Viking frequently came to plunder their homes. Even the more shy and secret inhabitants of the Emerald Isle, as the Leprechauns, made sure to take cover in the towers when the ravaging horde of Norsemen came ashore.

The model is built for the Leprechaun (series 6) and the Viking (series 4) and the architecture feature is the typical Irish round tower.

The tower is inspired by Derfel Cardarn's style. Although much more fragile since I didn't have all the necessary pieces. :tongue:

My third wish

Minifig series 6: Genie

Minifig series 2: Pharaoh

Architectural feature: Al-Khazneh or The Treasury at Petra, Jordan

Theme: Adventurers

Somehwhere in the desert, a Pharaoh once found a lamp in a secret chamber. He rubbed it and a Genie appeared. As the custom bids of Genies set free, the Pharaoh was granted three wishes.

6947853462_de9c19bd94_z.jpg

The hidden palace where the lamp was found

His first wish was a ton of gold, which appeared in an instant. The second wish was, naturally, Cleopatra in Leia's slave outfit. What will his third wish be?

7093922437_803903d180_z.jpg

The stud for the Genie on his lamp is illuminated by a PF lamp.

More pics (one with Genie) can be seen on my Flickr

Disclaimer: I had built about half of this when I found this LEGO Al-Khazneh by ArzLan. I had not seen it before and did not look at the pics, so all similarities are coincidental. His is better :thumbup:

Outpost Raid

Minifig Series 6: Intergalactic Girl

Minifig Series 3: Space Villain, Space Alien

Minifig Series 1: Spaceman, Robot

Theme: Space

Architecture: Space Outpost

The Intergalactic Girl always wanted to explore the universe and go on space adventures, but she got stuck guarding a remote outpost on a bare planet. I guess she should have been careful what she wished for because one day the notorious Space Villain and his merciless crew of space pirates came to raid the outpost! Can she fend off the scum together with her Spaceman friends?

7101085097_a30ec0e962_z.jpg

Outpost Raid - back by Oky - Space Ranger, on Flickr

The outpost is an example of quality space architecture. It is designed to be very sturdy and efficient. The hangar bay doors are nearly impenetrable and can only be opened with the correct access codes. That's why the space pirates are infiltrating the facility through an emergency hatch on the roof.

Inside the storage room of the outpost, a fierce battle between heroes and villains ensues while a defenseless maintenance robot watches in terror!

Raph's Shack

Series 6 Minifig: Mechanic

Series 3 Minifig: Racer

Theme: Town

Raph (the Mechanic) is currently working with Series 3 Racer and Team Octan on their new car, Blue 5, on his secret garage. The big shot Racer is enjoying his fancy macchiato (a la Jean Girard) while a Team Octan crew and Raph (the Mechanic) are doing all the dirty work.

7102483085_7e6f7e3ac5_z.jpg

An old school radio atop the spare wheels is playing songs from the Mechanic's favorite movie, Grease. The mechanic should be situated somewhere there on the left side of the garage.

Team Octan crew unscrewing the wheel. Some cans and tins are seen on the shelf (as well as an award for being an Outstanding mechanic) and some tools are hanging by the wall. A fire extinguisher is situated on a stool and beside it is the lever for the lift.

Not much of an architectural genius like the masterpieces posted by other members but it's still an architecture, right? More pictures can be seen at http://www.flickr.com/photos/tommilorenzo/.

"Through the Wormhole"

advid01b.jpg

"Hello, I'm Advid Forst, your host for 'Through the Wormhole' - the show where we travel through time and space to ask the question, "Who would live in a house like this?"

Today we've taken a trip to ancient Earth, the original homeworld of the long extinct human race. But will our panellists be able to identify which kind of human inhabits the structure behind me?"

advid02.jpg

"The building itself is of a rough stone construction, with a conical roof made from tree branches packed with mud to provide some insulation.

As usual, we've collected a number of items from inside the house that may or may not provide a clue to who lives here. Clearly they are no stranger to warfare, judging by the wooden spear. The helmet is probably a trophy from a recent battle. There is a wooden box containing a skull carefully preserved in cedar oil; the remains of a revered ancestor, if I'm not mistaken. And finally, a bowl of the blue pigment known as woad."

advid03.jpg

"Now I'm going to reveal to our audience, but not our panellists, the identity of our mystery human.

As he seems to be a fairly aggressive type, we've put him in a stasis pod for the duration of the program. This also helps prevent any embarassing and legally awkward changing-history-by-exposing-primitives-to-alien-technology incidents like that one in ancient Egypt during our last series.

Anyway, have you guessed who it is yet? That's right! A Celtic Warrior! Cyril, are our host's life signs still nominal? Excellent! Now after the commercial break, we'll be heading back to the studio to see how our contestants are doing."

advid04.jpg

One final overview of the vignette to show the radial roof construction, and now the sensible bit!

Series 6 minifig: Celtic Warrior

Series 3 minifig: Space Alien

Theme: Space/Historical gameshow mash-up

Architectural feature: Celtic Roundhouse

For anyone not familiar with it, this MOC is inspired by the popular UK celebrity panel show 'Through the Keyhole,' and its long-time presenter David Frost.

The Celtic Roundhouse was common in Britain from Iron Age until the Middle Ages, and is based on reconstructions I visited at the Museum of Welsh Life a few summers ago. Hope you enjoyed the show!
