MOC: Smaug the Micro

Recommended Posts

Smaug the Magnificent Micro

He loves Gold!

I have to say this is the smallest Smaug I’ve ever seen or built (Heh heh). Anyways I wish so much that I could make a massive Smaug, however my gold hoards are rather low for that, so I settled with Micro. Although don’t you call my micro hoard puny—those coins are as big as 12 micro hobbits! This works quite well for another Middle Earth Micro like my Orthanc.

Smaug himself was quite a challenge to make at this scale, but I settled with some piles of red bricks to give the impression of him. In all actuality he’s only made from two red minifigure hands, two red plums, and a red snake. And yes, it was a painful process to pile up those coins and then place a dragon on it.

Enjoy!

What a puny pile of gold! Hehehe

It's fantastic. I finally got ahold of a Venom so I can try and copy your splendid Orthanc. :)

Cute. :grin: Loving the architecture, you can tell it's dwarf-esque even at this scale, and mini Smaug is just awesome.

The build seems kind of sci-fi to me, but that certainly doesn't bother me! The Smaug is inventive. Just because you can't build it well doesn't mean you can't build it well - excellent example of this concept.

Thanks everyone!

nice micro you got there! are you going to keep going with this series?

I do plan on making more ones; and I really want to make Barad-dûr but not without the new Palantír head piece from the new LotR line for Sauron's eye! I may also make like Helms deep or Minas Tirith and stuff.

That is so cute, not what Smaug would really want to hear, but ho hum to that. I love the use of parts.
