    Peaches Castle from Super Mario Bros Nintendo MOC

    Thank you! Yes I will :) They are not. They float. Incredibly hard to achieve but I had to do it so when at shows it would display well. Thank you. Not at all, I think you should, Lego is art, we all have different takes on things.

  4. So meet Henry, King Henry the ninth. Such a good boy that I wanted to make a lego build out of him. Easier said than done! As an English Cream Golden Retriever he has a distinctive look when he has his mouth open, like hes smiling and it was important to capture that look perfectly and I think I nailed it. Next up was the eyes, I struggled here and ultimately settled on using white hub pieces to define the eye space and then went with the black 2x2 round tile with a brown brick structure behind and a little white. These dogs have really dark eyes and the 'eye' tiles really made him look way more cartony than he already is. My fave piece- The Collar, I have been looking for a way to use them in a build and the newer ones that are a narrower width worked perfectly but also allowed a pop of colour that the build needed. I couldn't decide if I was to build him out as a full body or just a bust, I am happy with how he is for now. Thanks for looking, its my first effort at sculpting an animal and was a really enjoyable process, I am welcome to any thoughts for improvements or tips in general on sculpting animals.

    6ft Rapunzel Tower from the Movie Tangled (MOC

    So Kind thank you. Thanks so much for the response. I certainly see your view on the vines, all the source material I found, the vines cut off right there, maybe Pascal chews them? 😂 However Ill meet you in the middle and may actually add one little vine that creeps up one of the wood pieces 😂. Thank you for taking the time to look and the time to respond! cheers :)

    Thanks, as I said in the post, I think the hair makes this really come alive and when on display it ads a little motion. Thanks for commenting. Ha thanks, High five recieved.

    Thanks, I despise tree building! I always say Ill never build another tree THanks, Well I completed a year ago and let it sit and didnt photograph it. But it probably was about 6 months or so on or off building :)

    Very sturdy, the technique on the tower is a post in itself. Solid all the way through the middle of the tower then it comes apart and joins via a technic slide in connection. The entire tower alone is 6 sections that support and disperse the weight. Hasn't fallen yet :)
  11. Here are some images of the 6ft Rapunzel tower I have built from scratch from the movie Tangled. As movie accurate as I could get it I tried to make it minifigure scale. The build started with the purple turret, one of the iconic parts of the structure. A year ago, purple lego was not that common in different parts so I have built it out of plates, snot bricks and cheese slopes. It is joined in together by bars and droid arms. The final addition was the hair, I don't think the build could really be complete without the hair and I struggled with a good technique that looked realistic and was to scale, so I built with 1x yellow flowers strung with string.

    (MOC) The Elvan Seaport of Elvadion

    Thank you Cheers It was a case of just making it work, each building started with the doorway so it would be scaled to them Thanks, it was such a simple and lucky technique. A happy accident I guess
  13. Thank you, it would have been nice if I had built it with minifigs in the horse :) Cheers, thats what I started the build with and scaled around it, imagine my horror when my wife places a plastic bag in front of me containing brown pieces of lego saying my daughters friend had been playing with it...
  14. Nice find. I love Lego Easter eggs...maybe this is an Easter egg showing that the only place to buy the Lego Disney Castle will be in this set, seeing as it is retiring at the end of the year...
  15. Thank you Thanks. Yes that is much tan and a lot of rather pricey minifigs- and I thought SW was expensive :) Done purposefully for effect, glad you noticed it:) Thank you! Thanks. I went for a war horse style, I didn’t want it standing straight
