I am very fond of the dark tan, dark bley, light bley, color scheme in this MOC, it all really seems to "flow.

The MOC was really only meant to be photographed from one side, and it wasn't this one.

Inigo crossing swords with Wesley.

Wesley fighting Inigo.

I wanted the walls to have a really "decayed" feeling to them, so leaves and dark tan seemed to fit perfectly.

Here's part of the tower that Inigo pushes Wesley into right before Wesley reveals that he's not left-handed either.

A duel shot.

"As you wish!" My version of Wesley in Cubedude form.

"My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die." Or if you want, my version of a Cubedude Inigo.

Wesley.

Cubedudes! I decided the best way for me to represent the people from the scene was to build them as Cubedudes since they would have otherwise required custom parts. I actually built the figures as I was working on my Superheroes MOC, so all I had to do to finish this was build the scene around them. And I don't care if this is "Phipson’s girlie side," it's one of my favorite movies.  I based my designs for the Cubedudes on BlockoLUG's designs, with my own changes.

For this MOC I was tasked with this challenge:
8. The Princess Bride
Here we have a nod to Chris Phipson’s girlie side. Build a scene from the movie “The Princess Bride”, any scene.

That's so cool, loving the use of all the dark tans and dark greens. This kind of makes me want to go watch the movie. :laugh:

Because building is half the battle.

Great scene! Man, it's been a long time since I saw a Cubedude, but they still look great!

INCONCEIVABLE!?!

Great looking Cubedudes. The background is nicely done as well. You captured Wesley and Inigo quite well.  :thumbup:

Instantly recognisable, both of them! Very clever and well done :)

Yeah, those mustaches were a real pain, all of them were a bit on the odd shaped side.

Yes, it does seem like Cubedudes have fallen off the map, sadly.
