    [MOC] Castle and Griffin Stairwell

    Please to share with you a castle MOC I made that is draws some inspiration from Hogwarts. The build started with a technic mechanism to make the griffin topped stairwell appear and rise (see animated gif). The height of the castle was a result of trying to hide the mechanism which ended up being far larger than I had first thought it would be. The raised gallery on the side was added to balance asymmetry of the Headmaster's towers on the right. This is my largest build to date, but I think I'll stick to more manageable sized builds that can fit on my desk in the future. Finally, I've included my IG profile that has more videos/photos https://www.instagram.com/gilderoy_blockhart/ Front view by Alex Lam, on Flickr Side View by Alex Lam, on Flickr Arcade by Alex Lam, on Flickr Technic stairwell mechanism by Alex Lam, on Flickr Griffin stairwell animated gif by Alex Lam, on Flickr Dumbledore's fold out office by Alex Lam, on Flickr

    [MOC] - HP Dueling Club / Chamber of Secrets

    Dueling Club MOC from Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets - finished ! This started out as a simple mosaic build to see if I could recreate the wonderful table design used in the film. Then it became and XXL rebuild of the original set 4733 from 2002. You'll see some of the pieces reused like the banner, lion's heads as well as Harry and Draco's old school torso and hair. More pictures on my IG if you're interested. instagram.com/gilderoy_blockhart/ dueling_club 1 by Alex Lam, on Flickr dueling_club 3 by Alex Lam, on Flickr dueling_club 4 by Alex Lam, on Flickr dueling_club 7 by Alex Lam, on Flickr dueling_club 8 by Alex Lam, on Flickr

  6. "as high as a church and full of nothing but towering shelves covered in small, dusty, glass orbs. They glimmered dully... their flames burning blue." - The Order of the Phoenix Hall of Prophecy MOC, a chamber on level 9 of the British Ministry of Magic. With some creative license, I built a ministry-inspired enclosure around the shelves of orbs so I could frame and hide the forced perspective illusion. Also some pictures of the "orbs" that I made while I was impatient for my PAB order of Mysterio's helmet piece to arrive. Hope you like it.

    [MOC/MOD] - Harry Potter: Movie in a Box

    Thanks ! I always thought of it as a quasi-Newt Scamander type magical suitcase. Truth is I just didn't know how to finish the top off as it's anti-studs facing up and I didn't want just a blank brown surface... so why not a handle ! thank you ! i'm not very good with microscale builds, my first time ! So tempted to make a BORG version or a Star Wars version. Some kind of Imperial device...hahah ! The mosaic for school emblems were fun to make. Took a lot of revising. I can't take full credit for the Horntail. I did look up other people's microscale dragon and most used the wings from CMF dragon boy / dragon girl figure. So I used that as a start point.

    [MOC/MOD] - Harry Potter: Movie in a Box

    Pleased to share with you my Harry Potter themed "Question Block"! It's a summary of a the third HP movie, The Goblet of Fire in a block.It features the important scenes including the three tasks from the Triwizard Challenge, the Yule Ball as well as the climax between Harry and Voldemort in Little Hangleton. I'm not a Super Mario fan, but was very interested in the mechanism behind Lego's question block set. Too cheap to buy the set and not wanting a bunch of yellow parts... so I built the mechanism with my own collection and then gave it a new look and theme. It's sort of like how people often remodel the Death Star model along different themes. It'd be neat to see the original N64 cube set have variations along other themes too... Star Trek version - Borg Cube, anyone ?!?! Can't post video but if you want to see it in action or more images, here's my IG if you're interested: instagram.com/gilderoy_blockhart/ cube_9 by Alex Lam, on Flickr cube_10 by Alex Lam, on Flickr cube_8 by Alex Lam, on Flickr cube_4g by Alex Lam, on Flickr

    Thanks so much ! That part was so fun to make, even though it's SO fragile and had to be rebuilt so many times !! Makes an otherwise gray tube a lot less boring to look at !

    [MOC] Microscale Le Mont Saint Michel - Normandy France

    This is a really fabulous build ! I have the utmost respect for microscale builders. It's so much harder to make a big impact when you're limited to a smaller canvas. Bravo !!

    [MOC] - HP Battle of Seven Potters

    Thanks ! It was quite a pain to set up the lights, yet without them the moc lacks the danger of the original scene. I probably made life hard for myself trying to photograph different scenes and having to have to rewire each one for each shot. One good thing though is that the new road plates that a lot of people don't like have the 2x4 tiles that cover studs with holes in them. Makes hiding wiring deep inside the model easier to do ! About the deatheater, I kind of cheated. I glue-gunned the head perpendicular to the neck to make it look like they were looking forwards while flying. I figured it'd be blurry so not as noticeable...Shhh... don't tell anyone ! :)
