Thanks to our News Scout SirSven7 who found this, I decided to share this beutiful MOC with you. This is a scene from the movie Time Bandits and was built by Flickr user V&A Steamworks.

I must admit I have not seen the movie, but here's a poster I found online:

Note that the giant's head is built with Duplo! And even without it, it's a fine medium-sized ship we have here!

Michael Palin, John Cleese, and Sean Connery? I must've heard about this movie and just forgotten to check it out :-p

At any rate, that there's Duplo blocks in a very well executed MOC surprises and amazes me. I've always wanted to use Duplo blocks in a MOC. I really want that new 14X2X2 Duplo arch in white, tan, black, or grey... In Brick terms, that's 28X6X4, a real win in my book since the arch opening would be 12 studs :-p Another piece I like is that tan angled arch thing they have in the Duplo Cars line... I just need to order some :-p

Anyway, that MOC is killer.
All time favorite: the original Imperial Flagship
Modern favorite: Race for the Stolen Treasure (X5 and counting)

This is an awesome MOC! I really love the size of the ship, and the yellow platform works so well.

Aw man, I loved that movie!  I saw it with my friends when I was in the Navy, and this moc definitely captures the ship perfectly!  That scene where they end up on top of the Giant's head was hilarious!

Genderfluid and proud of it.
