Often it can be difficult to decide what I want to build.

The Collectible Minifigures theme has brought many interesting historical minifigures. Last year I have built a large Greek layout for the Spartan from series 2:

After I had finished the Greek layout I thought a lot about what I should build next. Should I build a Roman layout for the Roman minifigures? Or should build an Egyptian layout for the pharaoh? Or a 1700's layout with a lot of minifigures with white wigs? I would like to build it all.

That's how I got the idea to build this MOC:

So many colours and details in small place. And the map of the world is incredible!

This is wonderful.

I thought the individual scenes were really well done, and I was really surprised to see the map of the world on the back - a very well thought out detail that adds a lot.

I love the progression of the build...fab work!

Excellent idea, fantastic execution. This looks amazing!

Silly joke, the 5th Egyptian/1st Greek is the first mob victim who got his feet cast in concrete? ;)

very cool, a very atractive way to teach some history.

Any plans to make the rest, the beginning with caveman and a possible future?

Wow! I'm particularly impressed by the buildings from St. Peter's Basilica to the Palace of Westminster. I think my favourite is Rosenborg Castle.

How did you achieve the columns in St. Peter's Basilica?

Humanity begins with Ramesses the Great and ends with Paris Hilton. Heh. Very nice MOC.

Potential additions you could consider for an expanded version:

Prehistory: A volcano, a jungle tree

Baby T-Rex. A monkey. The Gorilla Suit Guy. A Caveman and Cavegirl.

Feudal Japan: A Japanese shrine or temple

A ninja. A Samurai. A Geisha. A sumo wrestler. A Sensei.

Upcoming figures you definitely want to add when they are released: Abe Lincoln & William Shakespeare!
