(Not) LEGO Dragon Lands, Wave 2

Recommended Posts


Howdy guys!

This is the topic for my "second wave" of (Not) LEGO Dragon Lands. (Not) LEGO Dragon Lands is a MOC series that's meant to be like a new theme of LEGO fantasy; as such, the creations below are designed to be as stable, functional, and reasonably-sized as real LEGO sets. The creations I make in my "themes" (I've done several like this in the past) are designed to go together well, and be highly playable as a cohesive theme.

Like I said, this is the topic for the imaginary second wave of Dragon Lands (wave one can be seen in-depth here; wave 3 is here, and wave 4 here). The premise of this arc is that the orc-like Ustokal of the Essoni Desert and the humans of the Kingdom of Ardun, once at war with each other, are faced to join forces to defend their world from a new threat (very Legends of Chima, huh?). A group of Necromancers has conglomerated; they've risen an army of Zombies, and tied lots of powerful dragons to their service, so the good guys are up against quite the challenge!

Making this wave took me much less time than the first wave, and much of that was due to the fact that I already had a fairly established dragon design, theme aesthetic, and arsenal of characters to toy around with. A lot of the fun came in expanding a world that I'd already developed in a lot of depth with wave one, and improving things where I could (more versatile and stable dragons, more interesting minifig combos, more vibrant and unique-looking sets). I'm pretty happy with how this wave has come out, and I hope you enjoy it too!

I really like the idea of using the stud shooter like that with the disk piece.

I'm a fan of your builds and look foward to more.

I fear that this topic will get less attention because it's a fantasy theme that doesn't involve Lord of the Rings, but such is life in this "community".

His first wave got a decent amount of attention!

Again, very good work, Nuju. The first wave was beautiful, and I can't wait to see how wave 2 develops.

Lots of cool details and fun play features. Love the amount of story the set conveys in just so small number of bricks. Can't wait to see more!

I love this series of MOCs! =)

These seem well more creative than any castle-related sets TLG has ever done.

I don't understand how LEGO thinks that even younger children prefer really basic, normal medieval sets to your series! :P

More fun additions! I love that Dragon's Lair set, and the hoard of gold that's reasonably substantial (Isla de Muerta from POTC and The Lonely Mountain don't quite seem to have enough gold, or at least not concentrated enough in one spot). My only bit of critique about Radgha Rising is that both zombies have identical half-clad legs... if one had bare legs and the other had a single boot, that might make for a better 'look' (or one with 2 boots, the other with only one). Then again, Lego tends to favor right legs & arms only for a lot of their pirates & cyborgs with "different" limbs (the translucent left arms of Jek-14 and the Chima ice tribes being some notable exceptions), so having a pair of skeleton zombies each sporting a right boot kinda is in keeping with Lego patterns. :tongue:

I wish this were a real theme... lot of fun stuff going on in it! And I like how, as with Chima, former enemies seem to be working together against a common foe.

Very cool MOCs, but I love how you have presented them as actual sets. If the actual Castle themes were like this one, I would probably buy them all!

64025 - The first thing that I mentally wanted to do was push the dragon through the arch and I don't think it's big enough. The arch either need to be smaller so that it's definitely not dragon sized and therefore minifigs can pass through it to escape from the dragon, or it's go to be big enough for the dragon to fit through easily.

64027 - The first thing that I want to do with a gate is to attack it and I just don't see that with this set. It needs a dragon or a siege engine to attack the gate. I appreciate that there's a storyline but sets work best when they're obvious and it's not quite obvious at this stage.

Minor points on some very well designed sets.
