  1. Me too! Spent the last couple of years picking up LOTR minifigs for a large scale moc and it's cost me a fortune! With a bit of luck the D2C will a) be true and b) be Minas Tirith so we can get Orcs, Rohan soldiers, Gondorian soldiers, the Dead, the Witch king, Eowyn, Denethor and Faramir in one go! I can dream, right?

    LOTR Treebeard, WIP

    Thanks - I'm not a quick builder, but I'd better get to it! Hadn't thought of that, I'll give it a try, cheers If it does stick out too far I think I have an alternative using a modified plate with ring (ID 4081). Just need to pick up a few of them in brown.
  3. Just playing around with a few ideas for a Treebeard moc. Thinking if I can get him done I might put it on Lego Ideas as a "UCS" version. He's not really based on the movies, more my interpretation of him from the books. Except for his moustache, he's surprisingly sturdy, clips and bars hold everything in place pretty well. At the moment I'm not sure about his eyes - they're pearl gold but I think they need to be brighter... or maybe I've overdone his eyebrows. Here's a slightly earlier version... Part of me prefers them slightly simpler. Thoughts and suggestions welcome!

    [MOC] Boromir's final stand

    Great photography brings lots of atmosphere! The foliage and landscaping is very nicely done. I like Lurtz' bow too. Great job.
  5. These are fantastic! I especially like your Winter Village minis - they're so accurate and recognisable. I've never bought unofficial instructions, but if you ever made any for these I would be very tempted!

    [MOC] Airwolf Supercopter

    This is amazing! I've seen lots of airwolf mocs over the years (even built a few myself in my younger days ), but I don't think I've ever seen one as accurate as this. That side-on view is especially impressive - I had to zoom in before I realised it was a picture of the moc and not a reference pic of the real thing. Impressive work!

    LEGO Videogame Tie-Ins - Rumors & Discussion

    I think you're probably right (although who knows what Lego will do next). Shame though - this is a great idea and I'd buy SFII vignette sets in a heartbeat.

    The Red Fort

    Rwy'n ei hoffi! I can imagine this sitting across the valley from the yellow castle, with the two glaring at each other and sending over the occasional arrow! You've captured the vibe of the old classic theme beautifully - the colour and style fit really well - and then the angles and details you've added bring it right into the modern era. Just need a blue castle now to complete the set

    Forestmen's River Fortress Remake

    I like how bright and cheerful it looks. And those candlestick pieces work really well as bullrushes. Nice job

    [MOC] The Fortress of Falkenholt

    Gorgeous! I'm a sucker for cutaways, playability and fantastic detailed scenery. This has all three. I especially like the way you built the layers of rock and dirt in the caves, and the angles on that castle are so clean! Brilliant work

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I considered getting a second copy and using lightsaber hilts, but in the end I just ordered extra reindeer and a couple of the longer pearl gold plastic hoses from the grand piano: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=75c26&idColor=115#T=C&C=115 Thinking I should be able to replace the shorter hoses that come in the set with the longer ones, and then it'll be a doddle to attach the extra reindeer (the rest of the parts needed are common enough that I already had all but the red corner plates in my collection).

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I thought the same at first, but now I'm wondering what it would look like with nine reindeer... The sleigh runners feel a little plain to me, but that should be easily fixed with the gold trim from the old version. Getting excited for the WV set reveal now!

    [MOC] Barber

    I love it! You've captured so much character with just a few carefully chosen and cleverly placed bricks. I imagine he could tell some interesting stories about customers he's had in his chair! Top notch!

    Medieval street

    I'll just echo what everyone else has said - this is amazing! I love big detailed builds and you don't disappoint! Beautiful!
