[MOC] Orient Expedition - Himalayan temple

Recommended Posts

Hello adventurers!

I am happy to present you my second Orient expedition MOC - The Himalayan temple!

49683219362_22befac3a6_z.jpg

But first I have a two questions regarding stud.io:

- I noticed that some older torsos are missing in stud.io, as well as CMF. Is there some depository, where I can find them? (I know that I can create my own torsos with decals, but it is waste of time if someone already created them)

- Second is for strings in stud.io. I could not move string with coupling points, that is why I used a regular one for the bridge. It is a bug on my side, or it is not movable at all? 

 

Okay, now for the MOC. After red eagle I decided to take a look on the 7417 - Temple of Mount everest. It was one of the sets I always wanted but never had a chance to buy. 

I built the temple by a real life himalayan temple Tungnath Chopta Chandrashila. It is the heighest shiva temple of the world, and one of few high enough to be surrounded by snow as the original 7417 design shows. When I was a kid, I did not undestand why there is a bridge without river, so in my version I added a cold mountain stream. That reminded me one of the Josh Gates Destination Truth episodes, where they found a Yeti footprints near the river like this one (S02E01 for those who are interested), so I instantly added it to the scene. 

One thing, which I want to point out, is a plane. This plane was so perfectly build in the original version. I built mine only with small changes, the proportions and size are simmilar to original.

 

I also submited this MOC to ideas, it should be there soon, with this story description:

Johnny Thunder with his friend sherpa Sangye are looking for a legendary Sword of fire. The old map leads them into himalayas, through snowy paths and dangerous bridges, to a shrine on top of the mountain. Did they found a yeti footprints near the cold river?

Lord Sam Sinister is trying to be there first with his plane. Stealing ancient relics is not a good idea, because the shrine is properly guarded by a local monk. After the Johnny explains his intentions, monk shows him inside of  the shrine, where they find a secret cave under the temple.

Here it is - the legendary Sword of fire!

This looks really good! I like the modular design of tge temple and the properly rickety-looking bridge.

Thanks to all.

I submitted it yesterday, so it should be on ideas in the middle of the week I think. I will write here when it will be online.

Just an idea but you could add an Yeti minifig there too. Since Yeti appeared in Orient Expedition.

I wanted to add CMF Yeti, unfortunately, this minifigure is not in stud.io  :sceptic:

This is so cool!  Love the Adventurers theme and seeing this Himalayan Temple with all of your fantastic details makes me want to break out some of the old sets.  Excellent photography/photo editing as well.

Nicely done and thank you for sharing!

I really like this - very nice job capturing that Orient Expedition feeling, and the landscaping and bridge are quite good: I'm digging the way the river looks like almost just a crack in the snow/ice.  And of course kudos on including the interior as well! :thumbup:

Today I received an email from Ideas. Sadly, my submission has been returned because it "requests the re-release of a discontinued LEGO product or theme". I do not know what can I possibly change in this MOC, but at least now I know how to build a next one.

Nice to see an Adventurers MOC - great job @Peter1999 - I particularly like the bridge. Just been reading about Nepal and Tibet too so your build encapsulates the spirit of adventure perfectly!
