While I'm looking forward to the Monster Fighters and Lord of the Rings sets, I build this graveyard that has a little of both themes: Occult graverobbers that could be a tie in with Monster Fighters and the MOC is inspired by 'The Mines of Moria' set.

I tried to keep it simple and fun, just like a real LEGO set and I'm pretty happy with the result. Hope you guys like it.

Cool little MOC that feels like a set  :thumbup: Maybe you could add some sort of play feature with the coffin?
Nice use of the brick bricks   :classic:

Nice scene. I like ornamentation on the middle part. The swords a nice touch, too.

There is a play feature with the coffin (or not, one may disagree with that): you can open and close it and pick the remains of a dead person from it. It's in my Flickr gallery.

That does look like a little set, except it is missing some flick-fire missiles!

Neat little MOC. I think it definitely adds a little "human" appeal to the Monster Fighter theme without being too monster-esque.

I think a neat play feature would be to have the skeleton catapult out of the coffin. Then I would say it could be sitting alongside other sets on the shelf.

Keep up the great work!

I feel very ashamed I forgot those!!!

Next time when I'm planning and building a custom set, I will try to make a 'real' play feature.

This is a great little MOC, and reminds me of a real set.

I love how you made the cross.  :thumbup: :classic:

I love this. I think you have captured the feel of a TLG set very well. The brother with th torch is my favourite too. I particularly like the cross on the central piece. Excellent!

I'm glad you guys like it. I'm still waiting that the Monster Fighters theme is hitting The Netherlands, so I could make MOCs that are directly linked to the theme. I have already an idea for the Swamp Creature...
