Hey all!

Following my small 9469 Frodo's Wooden Race Car MOC I built last May,
http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=70330

Here is a LotR/Castle MOC made entirely with the bricks from the 9470 Shelob Attacks set.

The head was built first, hence why it's a bit disproportionally big. The hind legs were done last, hence why they are short and frail (lacking parts).
The neck, jaw, limbs, wings, and tail are all articulated.
9470 is a terrific hinge parts pack.

What is this mini-dragon's favorite snack? Hobbits, of course!

Leftover parts. You can see I pretty much used all the hinges that I could.

Nice work! I think it looks a lot better in 'flight mode' than when on it's little legs. Was this how you built it? I guess it reminds me of a bat, or pteradactyl in that respect, born to fly.

Thanks!

>>>Nice work! I think it looks a lot better in 'flight mode' than when on it's little legs.

I think it looks best when crouching on all 4 of its limbs (as seen on the pics when it attacks Frodo), but I agree it kinda looks ridiculous when standing up on its hind legs.

>>>Was this how you built it?

Not sure what you mean by this question, but I started with the head, and went from there, using as many pieces from the 9470 as I could.

Cheers!

Hi!

I finally dismantled it.
Here are some photo instructions (which are just reverse-ordered photoshoot of my dismantling of it).
Now everybody who owns the 9470 can easily build it.
