Looking through my old pictures, I found a few I had taken of a creation I made fresh out of my Dark Ages. The construction isn't great, but I do enjoy the minifigures. So, I give you the lair of Dr. Phibes!
(For anyone who hasn't seen the Phibes movies, starring Vincent Price, I highly recommend them. Campy horror as only Price can do it)

As you walk into the lair, you are greeted by a strange old man. His eyes are sharp, but his face looks very waxy . . . almost false. He doesn't appear to be able to speak normally; instead, he relies upon a peculiar device which hooks into his neck.

Dr. Phibes:

He begins to play his organ, accompanied by his clockwork band.

But what is he hiding beneath that mask-like face of his?

A final shot of Phibes, his organ, the staircase, and his clockwork band (note the winding key):

(The lair is based off of this lair of his in the movies:)
