Hello, here is my latest indy creation: the ark of the covenant ceremony! It is a classic vig, on an 8 x 8 baseplate. I put some spirits in it, too, and I used bananas for details on the ark. I just love clever uses on bananas!  :-D Enojy:

I feel a song coming...

"Ring ring ring ring ring ring ring
Banana phone
Ring ring ring ring ring ring ring
Banana phone

I've got this feeling
so appealing
for us to get together and sing - SING!"

There are lots of things you can do with bananas!! :-D

Nice vig sir Nadroj!

Bananas ON!!!

Very nice vig!  I like your use of the red bush as an exploding head.

Great way to do the exploding head. That's also a very nice ark.

Clever use of that under boush and ghosts !!

The exploding head is hilarious, great technique! Here's a little trivia fact for you; during the initial viewing of Raiders for the MPAA, it was set to be rated R for the single exploding head shown in clear view. Spielberg did not favor this and decided to obscure the image behind a column of fire to achieve a rating of PG (there was no PG-13 at the time it was released).  Maybe you should so the same, Sir Nadroj! :-P We don't want any graphically explicit ABS plastic bricks, now do we? ;-)

Lovely little vignette overall, with the perfect amount of detail. I like that ark to.  *y*

Thanks! Interesting trivia, BTW! I was surprised that it was only PG and is was so violent/bloody, which also surprises me that lego got the license!


Anyone have any suggestions for another Indy vig? *sweet*

Thats really funny that you suggest that! I was thinking of doing Willy with a monkey head in front of her. Or a snake, or beatles....uhhhh. Actually, chilled monkey brains do not sound so bad, but I love game (rabbit, pheasant, deer, duck, etc.)  ;-)

The use of a red bush as an exploding head is ingenious!  :-D

Another song (maybe I heard it wrong :-P , but):
It's Bananas, Sweet I am I am
(Hollaback Girl, Gwen Stefani)

Great moc, I always disliked this scene, because it was so bloody, gore and destructive as the political system the bad guys support. But in Lego it is nicely done. The Angel of Death is nice. :-)

Thanks, I'll have it in my head for the rest of the day... I hate you, man.  :-D  ... Well the day is almost over anyway...  :-P

To SirNadoj: really cool vig indeed and nice ark. I always like when this bush is used to symbolize spattering blood.  :-D
Looks like Indy inspires you a lot these days Nadoj (I know it's "SIR", but I couldn't resist  :-P )

This is great!  Love the use of the bush, and the way the ghosts rise into the air is sweet.

I reckon with a bit of backlighting to illuminate those spirits, it would be even better!
