I built this Lord of the Rings MOC last week and brought it to an event with Swebrick, the Swedish LUG, this weekend. First I had planned to do a build with all of the fellowship, but I didn't come up with anything good at the moment so I settled for this idea. I think it is a really iconic scene for the first movie.

Sorry for the non-clean background. The trees got a bit demolished in the transport home and I'm not sure if I'm going to rebuild them so I took the photos from the event.

Hope you like it! :classic:

Completely worthy of John Howe!  :thumbup: :thumbup:
The iconic scene in the movie was 100% inspired by his picture. (He was heavily involved with Peter Jackson, as you may know)

I really like this MOC, especially the trees and how you captured the layout pretty much perfectly.  My only criticism would be the dark green 1x2 plates you have scattered throughout.  They don't look so much like patches of grass/moss as just randomly placed Lego bricks.  Maybe if you placed a few more in each area, and had some different color green or something it would blend better?  Or maybe if you did the ground green with some brown spots instead (inverse the two colors)?  As is right now they just seem to stick out a lot.

Looks excellent and the scene can be recognized straight away. :wink: The gigantic tree and all the little plants here and there look great.

Lol!  You got Frodo so scared with his eyes are going white, Sam and Pippin both terrified and screaming.. and Merry sitting there with a little smrik on his face.  Classic (I realize you did this because his face doesn't have a really scared look)!  Also, I noticed the minifigures look a little different and then I noticed it's because they have normal legs on them and appear taller, even sitting down!  Of course you had to do this since the short hobbit legs don't bend  :tongue:

Great to see this gnice build again Etzel. Had the opportunity to see it live at a Swebrick event this weekend and I love the coluorscheme. The trees and the path also feels just right to me.

Perfect scene! I love how everyone is so scared except for the one hobbit on the right, who seems so smug :tongue:

I saw the dark green 1x2 plates as fallen leaves from the tree..........Could be wrong though.
