    [MOC] "The Lord of the Rings" Skylines

    Thanks for all the kind words and thoughtful comments!

    [MOC] "The Lord of the Rings" Skylines

    Thanks for the thoughtful comment! I agree with your assessment of how "Fellowship" flows together the best. I suppose as the journey becomes more epic with each book, the set pieces become larger and more distinct.

    [MOC] "The Lord of the Rings" Skylines

    Thank you very much! It was a fun challenge!
  5. For the last month I have been designing skylines for the three "The Lord of the Rings" movies/books! "The Fellowship of the Ring" features the Shire, Bree, Weathertop, Ford of Bruinen, Rivendell, Moria (behind Rivendell), the Doors of Durin, and the Gates of Argonath. Moria is hidden behind Rivendell :) "The Two Towers" features Edoras (with the Golden Hall), Fangorn Forest (with micro Ents), Isengard (with Orthanc), the Dead Marshes, and Helm's Deep. Helm's Deep has a play feature built it that allows you to launch part of the fortified wall into the air to reenact the explosion. Here is a view looking down over the Dead Marshes: "The Return of the King" features Minas Tirith, The Black Gate, Barad-dur, the Tower of Cirith Ungol (with hidden Shelob on the back), and Mount Doom. Mount Doom's tiny play feature allows you to drop the ring into the top and it will come out the backside. And here is a view of all three of them lined up together. Anyone interested in seeing additional views can check out my Instagram page (@BenBuildsLego). Instructions are also available for all three on Rebrickable and via the link in my Instagram bio. Let me know what you think of them!

    [MOC] Disney World Skyline

    A lot of people expressed to me on my Instagram that they liked the castle, so I isolated it into its own mini-build! It's just 4" by 4." Instructions for anyone interested can be found here.

    [MOC] Disney World Skyline

    Thank you! That was the icon I was worried the most about since it's the most iconic.

    [MOC] Disney World Skyline

    I designed a skyline of Disney World that features the four icons of the parks: - Animal Kingdom: The Tree of Life - Epcot: Spaceship Earth (with the "Leave a Legacy" plaques) - The Magic Kingdom: Cinderella's Castle (with Walt Disney and Mickey statue) - Hollywood Studios: The Tower of Terror (with Sunset Blvd.) Instructions for anyone interested can be found here. Let me know what you think, and you can follow me on Instagram @BenBuildsLego!

    [MOC] "The Empire Strikes Back" Skyline

    That's a very fair critique of Hoth, and I thought much of the same things while building it. I tried adding a teeny snowspeeder at one point but it just ended up looking hilariously out of scale.
  11. I received a lot of positive feedback on my "A New Hope" skyline, so here is the next installment: "The Empire Strikes Back." I'm currently working on creating a skyline with the same dimensions for each Star Wars film - you can see "Rogue One," and "Solo" on my Instagram and Flickr pages. I also made some slight modifications to the design to make the pieces more affordable. Anyone interested can find the instructions here.

    [MOC] "A New Hope" Skyline

    Thanks everyone for the kind words! I'm currently picking away at "The Empire Strikes Back!"

    [MOC] "A New Hope" Skyline

    Thanks! And yes, I'm in the (long) process of designing a skyline for each movie! Each skyline will have the same length dimensions and will be comprised of the top 3 most iconic locations from each film. You can start to see the concept taking shape here with "Solo," "Rogue One," and "A New Hope" all lined up!

    [MOC] "A New Hope" Skyline

    I designed a skyline in the manner of the Architecture skyline series for "A New Hope." The design features Tatooine, the Death Star hangar / Death Star, and Yavin IV. Let me know what you think! I made instructions for this build after some clean-up and minor alterations (instructions can be accessed here). You can also follow the fun on Instagram @BenBuildsLego!
  15. From left to right: Oldtown, King's Landing, Highgarden, Casterly Rock, Riverrun, the Eyrie, and Winterfell. I wanted to do a Lego Architecture Skyline of the seats of powers of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. Unfortunately, not all of them have been seen in the show. So Oldtown subbed in for Sunspear and King's Landing subbed in for Storm's End. After reviewing the entire build, I streamlined the parts usage to be more affordable and created instructions, which can be accessed here for anyone who might be interested.
