IJ: Brawl in Nepal

It's funny but when I coined that term to describe such a potential Indy sets, I expected people to say it was a horribly corny title and now it seems to have been embraced, having seen it used several times since. Who'd have thought?
I don't usually comment on MOCs but this is an excellent example of how TLG could and should produce this set. You've pretty much duplicated exactly what I felt was needed for a small ($10-$15) set. The only difference I'd make would be using 1x2 jumper plates below the flames instead of 1x1 cones. Nevertheless, very fine work!

Don´t have much to add to what the others have already said.
It really looks like something that could have been an official set.

You have done a great MOC here
Hopefully they will actually make more Indy sets soon

I think the bar and fireplace are a little more solidly built than we might see in an official set, unless it were a larger, more expensive one than I think the "box art" image suggests. I think this would more likely be a $15 or even $20 set than a $10 or $11 one. But it would still be doable, I think.
I just wonder now what TLC will do about this scene if/when they bring back the theme. They undoubtedly would want to do something different from what's been seen in a fan MOC, but they'd also want to take advantage of as many good ideas for play functionality as possible. And you also have the perfect name for it! That so sounds like an official set title. It'd be my first choice (my second would probably be "Misbehavin' in the Raven" )...

I think you have captured it very well!
I like the bar, and the playability of the fireplace.
Very nice job with this!
