This is just a little sample of an upcoming moc where I get crazy with mushrooms. It's not my best photo quality but it'll do for now. I hope you all enjoy my mushroom's. C&c welcome :classic:

Hello CB,

this is a nice looking MOC. Why are the mushroom so big? Is there something unnatural in the earth or is it magic?
Is this mage collecting some ingredients for an elixir, giving more power to the forces of Avalonia?

One last remark, why is the frame of this scene in purple?

70's? I don't think Historica has got there yet! I'm happy that you like it.

The mushrooms are big because it's fantasy. The mage is collecting so his master can go on a spiritual journey. The frame is purple because I didn't have enough pink. Joking aside, I just wanted to get some use out the lame Friends parts.

Great use of the radar dish as mushrooms.  If we have magic then why not giant mushrooms.  I haven't picked up any friends sets but the butterfly alone makes me want to get one.

the scene is just begging for a frog though dont you think? ;)

Very Nice, I really like the use of Spheres as immature Mushrooms.

I've also used these parts for mushrooms, Construction Helmet & Army Helmet

Also, I saw this set yesterday

It has some interesting possibilities, including some Huge Mushrooms.

Wow those mushrooms are really big, I love when Mocs vary a lot and we get surprises as this one.

Is it going to be a part of a story you are developing?

I like this a lot, the huge mushrooms are quite nice and humorous. Can't wait to see where this is going.

Very clever use of the dishes. It's got a great Alice and Wonderland feel to it. Now you just need a big brick-built caterpillar sitting on the big mushroom asking "Whooooooo are youuuuuu?"

Yes, in general, they do. Duplos are 2x the size of LEGO, so a 2x4 Duplo is a 4x8 LEGO. Not all of them fit together, for instance Duplo bricks will fit on LEGO plates, but not vice versa.

Great MOC btw. I can see that I'm going to have to go buy some large brown radar dishes now...

Oh, Captain Beer Beard asked if Duplos work with system Lego bricks.  Yes they do, but It's best to stick with 2x2 and 2x4 brick connections, especially when the duplos are on the bottom.

Ahh mushrooms, Happy days :laugh:  these look really great and stand out well. It's always good to see people coming up with new plant additions. You know I'm expecting a good fun scene with these from you now! I'm sure somewhere in Avalonia there is a guy growing and selling these...for medicinal purposes of course :laugh:  Avalonia will be riding into battle totally wasted now :laugh:
