Whoa... that is incredible! *oh2* The whole chest looks great, that chain looks so real and the jewelry is beautiful. And all those... microphones?? *huh* That is just brilliant part usage. Amazing.

Spectacular!  Seriously NPU with the handles and the microphones!  The chain is simple but looks great as well.  Wonderful build!  :sweet:

For the benefit of n00bs like me...what does "NPU" stand for?

NPU = Nice Part Use. An unexpected (often very clever) way to use a LEGO element in a model.  :classic:

Thanks!  In all my years of AFOL forums I have never encountered that acronym.

This is a pretty decent Lego/AFOL glossary if you want to peruse it

Nah, I'll just remain ignorant and ask if required. :pir-laugh:

But thank you for sharing the glossary.

Well i leave comments not really often here, but.... THAT THING IS SO ASTONISHING!!!!

Big scale gives so many opportunities for detailing. Huge chain is awesome!!! Microphones as rivets...

I really had fun to look all those details, thank you)

Wow, at first sight I thought it was a real photo, the chain and the handles of the treasure chest are incredible! *oh2*
The shapes are not those of normal lego MOCs ... there is genius in this realization! :thumbup:

Just FYI, I'm pretty certain something can't be "plundered away." Maybe 'frittered away?'... or 'squandered on'...?

:grin:

OKaaay... I mean, it's only been in common use for a decade+ so I don't know what to tell you.   ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Very impressed by this MOC. I looked hard, wondering if this was really LEGO or whether custom parts had been used. Well done - it looks awesome!

I've been browsing Lego forums for the last 13 years and have never met this acronym. But maybe I've just missed it. Now, I'm not saying you should not use it as well because some random dude is calling it vauge. Still, nice part usage is too general and subjective to say "wow NPU", instead of just writing it down. It should really mean someting more strict, IMHO... <- like this. So with this direciton any expression could be made into an acronym. But that's just me thinking out loud about the matter, don't take it as an attack.

Anyway, I'm very off topic, forgive me. So I just say that I agree with you all the same, some nice part usage was done there for sure ;)
