    Review: The Lost Tomb

    Could you please give me a link? Actually I haven't translated the hieroglyphs yet, but always thought that these must be the names of the gods whose heads are shown on the maps.

    Review: The Lost Tomb

    @Mr Maniac Great review. I bricklinked this set, too, and combined it with set 5919 to a larger structure. I agree with that. These two pillars correspond to maps no. 40 and 80 which show Anubis and Horus as explained by me here. There were four different maps (20, 40, 60 and 80) in the Adventurers desert sets which had a corresponding pillar each (identical hieroglyphs in the bottom right corner of the maps).

    Sets that makes your highly emotional?

    The starting point of all Lego castles - set 375 is my all-time favourite which I got as a Christmas present in 1980 or 1981.
  8. Welcome back. Nice to see you again! I'd go for these two!

    Episode 1: The secret in the desert Prologue Some time ago, Doc Lightning had made a surprising find in an almost forgotten archive of the British Museum in London: four ancient maps of Egypt in a wooden crate. Taking a closer look on the maps, he had made some interesting discoveries: Each of the maps shows the same symbols: the Nile river, some names of towns and places, on the left hand side from top to bottom a sphinx, pyramids and an obelisk and a red ruby. But each map also shows some different symbols. Map 20 shows the head of the god Knuhm (head of a ram), a small figurine of that god in the bottom center and some hieroglyphs on the right bottom corner. A red cross in the bottom left corner marks the beginning of a dotted line. Map 40 shows the head of the god Anubis (head of a jackal), a small figurine of that god in the center and as well some hieroglyphs on the right bottom corner. The red cross marks the crossing of the Nile river and the dotted line. Map 60 shows the head of the god Thoht (head of an ibis), a small figurine of that god on the left hand side and some hieroglyphs on the right bottom corner. The red cross marks a place on the left bank of the Nile river. Map 80 shows the head of the god Horus (head of a falcon with a sun), a small figurine of that god in the top center and some hieroglyphs on the right bottom corner. The red cross marks the end of the dotted line just in front of the sphinx. Doc Lightning had soon realized that the dotted line was the way to find the magic red ruby - the Re-Gou Ruby - with map 20 showing the starting point and map 80 showing the final destination. He also had discovered that the hieroglyphs on each map corresponded to hieroglyphs on certain pillars: To map 20 To map 40 To map 60 To map 80 After he had made these discoveries Doc Lightning immediately had contacted Johnny Thunder and some time later they found themselves ... ... in the Egyptian desert When Doc Lightning, Johnny Thunder and Patric O'Leary had reached the placed marked by the red cross on map 20 - the starting point - they found an empty tomb on a hill. But then Johnny discovered a small slot at the rear. With the help of some dynamite ... well, they opened the access to a hidden treasure chamber just below the tomb. Doc Lightning took the golden goblet from the chamber. He just felt that it might be useful on their quest through Egypt. To the MOC: I built this little vignette with this raised baseplate from set 6241. The exploding mechanism actually works with the help of that printed dynamite tile. It is the same mechanism that can be found in some of the old western sets (e.g. 6755). The pillar with the hieroglyps is a new print which we got with set 10273, the Manor von Barron. I hope you like it. Comments and critics are very welcome. More pictures on my flickr.
