Again, your post would be much better if you expanded on why you think it's nice.  And added punctuation and capitalization.

This is my fifth time visiting this topic and it still gives me the goosebumps :wink: Really, the MOC is beautifully built-I especially like the statue (it really is the icing on the cake :thumbup: )- and the presentation is flawless. The only thing that bothers me is a tidbit in the second to last photo. I have a wild temptation to reach into the computer screen and click the bricks together (unless that was intentional, in which case this post would be rather embarrassing for me :tongue: ). Anyways, I really enjoyed the little story. I wonder if we'll see more of Tom...  :look:

P.S. Sorry Penguin, but everyone knows chickens are cooler than penguins :grin: . Taste better too. Not that i tried penguin before :look: ...

Beautiful and atmospheric. The Gotham City storyline stands on its own quite nicely, but the mood you have created also reminds me of "The Fog Horn" by Ray Bradbury, as well as a famous old story/radio drama called "Three Skeleton Key."

Great story and MOC! This fits into the Batman universe nicely. The lighthouse is an excellent reimagination of the set 5770 Lighthouse Island, although in a much darker mood. The headpiece of the statue is a modified version of the Statue of Liberty minifig's hair, right? Hopefully you will continue this story, as it kept me really excited!

It's that greyish statue of the Mermaid that really does it for me. :)


Excellent work overall.
