My newest MOC, Bellatrix Lestrange's vault at the wizard bank Gringotts. Harry, Ron, Hermione, and the goblin Griphook must break in and steal the cup of Helga Hufflepuff (one of Voldemort's horcruxes), but encounter some difficulty when everything in the vault starts to multiply and burn them.
Constructive criticism and questions are welcome!   :thumbup:

That's just how I had the scene in my mind. It's perfect!  :laugh:  :thumbup:
I really like all those things that shine, the cup on the sword, how the vault is built,...  And then everything duplicates, the door breaks off and they fly away on the dragon.  :cry_happy:

Are you going to make more HP MOC's?

This is almost exactly how I pictured the scene from the book so good work, "me likey many shiny Legos", and the cave walls also look good :sweet: . I just hope that there will be enough space in there after every thing multiplys itself, for Indiana Jones and company followed by some Nazis :look: .

I love it! That part was one of my favourites in the book, and this is a brilliant and funny interpretation of it!

I agree with both of these statements, it's very similar to how a lot of us imagined it! (but without the Ark of the Covenant and the golden idol)  :tongue:

Very nice work, really!  :thumbup:

But looking at some little idol in the right of the pics should we admit that Voldemort stole it from Belocq or was Belocq a disciple of Voldemort? LOL  :tongue:

There was a dragon in this part, but not for a while. First they had to get through all the hot multiplying objects, which seem to have been demostrated very well in this MOC!  :sing:

Yes, It really looks like Belatrix is a fan of Indiana Jones.  Who knew?  

This is a great representation of that scene.  The walls are interesting without distracting from the hoard.

I like it with all of it's shiny stuff (there could've been more, though, but if that's all you've got, then it's okay), but I'm not so sure about the walls. To me, they don't look very cavey... I'm not sure if the protrusions on the wall give the right impression.

One thing you could've possibly added is the round vault door, similar to the one on the book cover.

But I do like it, it's great to see more Harry Potter stuff here!

Thats a great HP Moc, just like the book. And all the treasure is so awesome.


Only minor, ickle, tiny complaint, is the use of the technic bricks at the front, but its does not stop this from being one of my favourite HP mocs EVER.

Great work.

And I don't mind the Gollum-ness, I've been watching Return of the King (Extended Edition  :thumbup:) quite frequently.

Thanks! And yes, there was a dragon, but it's described in the book as being silvery and pale and there's not really a Lego dragon that matches up with it. I thought it'd be better to leave it out instead of putting something in the MOC that wouldn't inaccurate.

I always knew that there had to be something Bellatrix liked just as much as Voldemort and torture... turns out it's Indy!
And thanks for the comments on the walls, I wanted them to look cavelike without overshadowing all the shiny stuff.

Thanks! And I agree on the door thing, I just didn't have enough pieces (especially brown... the Flying Dutchman is eating them up currently!) to do it correctly, so I decided not to include it. And I'll make sure to look at some more mountainous MOCs before I start on my next one (a castle-themed snowy mountain) so I can see what I can do differently. Thanks again!  :sweet:

Thanks! I hate the technic holes in the front, I tried covering them up but it always looked droopy.  :sceptic:
The only reason I used them though was for the size of the plates themselves, and that they interlocked with one another on the inside.
And one of your favorite Harry Potter creations ever? Thank you!  :blush:

Sorry to bump a really old topic but as it is HP Month I thought I might be forgiven!

This is brilliant, I can't believe I missed it when you first posted.  :cry_sad:

After recently watching the new movie I decided to re-read the book, so this scene is fresh in my mind and I think it is just perfect, exactly how I would have built it if only I had the pieces!

This must have been just before all the multiplying treasure started to burn or else you would need some screaming faces. Haha.  

Really well done!!!
