  • The selected movie theme must includes a hyperlink of the original selected movie poster or synopsis.
  • By definition of a "movie"; a form of entertainment that enacts a story by sound and a sequence of images giving the illusion of continuous movement; Basically, I am not looking into any soap dramas or TV series or whatever! It must be a movie and I am not going to restrict it by only indicating international blockbusters. No pornography or extreme sadistic/terrorist or whatever unaccepted scenes are allowed. If you are unsure, ASK ME!

  • A reasonable overhang is allowed to accommodate tree limbs or minifigure accessories, but may not exceed more than 2 studs outside the base.  
  • No Series 5 minifigures are required. You don't need to own the figure to create a home for it, and it will not improve your chances if you do.

You may use older accessories, but not new ones from Series 5 like the violin case, graduation gown, axe, pie, etc, for example.

I don't know if I have understood the rules correctly, but here is my entry, 'love under the big top'.

It is the circus scene from 'Big Fish'.  Edward Bloom sees a beautiful girl across the circus ring, the girl he knows will one day be his wife... “They say when you meet the love of your life time stops, and that’s true… What they don’t tell you is that once time starts again, it moves extra fast to catch up.”

The Lord of the Rings : Balin's Tomb
Minifigs: Dwarf (5) and Elf

Deep down in the Mines of Moria, the curious hobbits accidentally tilts a skeleton down a well which echoes loudly as it falls, waking up the orcs and a cave troll.
Boarded up in Balin's Tomb the Fellowship of the Ring await the inevitable onslaught. As the door gives in, Gimli jumps up on the his forefather's tomb and shouts:
"Let them come! There is one dwarf yet in Moria who still draws breath!"

Posted Image

Also in the scene is Legolas, Boromir, Aragorn, Gandalf and probably Sam (the hobbits are hard to tell apart  :laugh:).
Here are some quick shots from the movie scene and a link to a YouTube clip.

Fear changes everything... they heard something pushing on the loading dock door... now they just wish they didn't open it.
At least David did his best with the axe he found and managed to cut one of the tentacles...

The smoke is real and made with dry ice (yes, the setup was difficult)
The vignette with the fig can be seen on My Flickr.

Minifigs: Series 5 Circus Clown, Series 1 Clown, Series 2 Ringmaster
Theme: Disney

My entry for this category is a recreation of the climax of the Disney animated classic Dumbo. Here we can see Dumbo about to jump off the burning building facade and surprise everyone by showing them that he can fly! Meanwhile, the ringmaster directs the audience's attention at Dumbo, while the firefighter clowns prepare to catch the young elephant with the fake trampoline with a tub full of soap water underneath it. You can watch the scene here: http://youtu.be/naDx8DSqH0o?t=6m9s

Posted Image Posted Image

Here's a closer look at Dumbo with his clown make up. Note the "magic feather" that he holds in his trunk. If you're wondering where Timothy the mouse is, he is hiding in Dumbo's hat. :wink:

Posted Image

The Series 5 Circus Clown is supposed to stand next to the other clowns, holding the trampoline. More pictures here. Hope you like it, and good luck to my fellow competitors. :classic:

Minifigs: Series 5 Cavewoman; Series 3 Ape; Series 1 Caveman
Theme: Planet of the Apes (1968)

Col. Taylor has crashed on an "alien" planet.  He and his fellow astronauts think the grunting humans they meet are the "rulers" of the planet.  They are surprised then, when a hunting party of talking apes attacks the humans.  In the scene depicted, Taylor, played by Charlton Heston, emerges from the corn field followed by the girl he will later name Nova as the apes try to capture or kill all of the humans.  The cavewoman is Nova and she would be behind Taylor in the corn field.

Here goes with my first ever Eurobricks post!  This was a really challenging category, but fun - thanks to the organisers!

Spartacus - Fight to the Death

The scene is from the 1960 film, 'Spartacus'.

Spartacus (armed with sword and shield) is forced to fight to the death with his former sparring partner, Drabo (armed with trident and net) for the amusement of Senator Marcus Licinius Crassus.  Crassus discusses political schemes with his friend Glabrus, while the slave girl Varinia, who has fallen in love with Spartacus, looks on anxiously...
If you want to see how the fight ends, you can watch it on YouTube.

Series 5 minifig:  Gladiator (obviously!)
Series 1-4 minifig:  Spartan

I don't own an official Lego net, so the one Drabo is carrying was hand knitted from black cotton thread by my wife.  She's a star!

Good luck everyone!
