  1. Helms Deep MOC w/ Elven Archers/Swordsman

    Looks like you've had an awesome time building this! (minus the whole financing it part.) It is very impressive and I'm sure looks 10x better in person as a display piece. Good luck on completing it!
  2. Sam: Trust a Brandybuck and a Took. Merry: What? That was just a detour, a shortcut. Sam: Shortcut to what? Pippin: Mushrooms!
  3. [MOC] Look to the East

    That is some nice imagery! It is amazing what you can achieve just by playing around with a lighting source.
  4. Lord of the Rings MOCs chronological index

    I'm not sure if this MOC that I did would fall under the "Helm's Deep" header or not. It's Gandalf's Charge at the end of the battle. Here's the link, if you'd like to add it to your list. >>>http://www.flickr.com/photos/karlsonkreations/9229055828/
  5. [MOC] Look to the East

    I'd like to thank everybody for their replies and constructive criticism. In fact, I took all your ideas and updated this MOC. I'm still fairly new to building my own creations, so your ideas in each response help a lot. Here's some updated shots. I think I captured the scene much better this time around. Let me know what you think! (You can click each photo for a larger view.)
  6. The Hobbit MOCs chronological index

    If you'd like yet another (small) Riddles in the Dark MOC, you can add mine. That seems to the most popular Hobbit MOC as of yet! I plan to build a different one soon, though. http://www.flickr.co...ons/9203003496/
  7. One of my favorite scenes from The Two Towers is when Gandalf, Eomer, and the Rohirrim arrive at the battle of Helm's Deep to turn the tide. I've really been wanting to do a small-scale MOC of this scene, so I gave it a go today! Here's the scene for a quick reference: ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ And here's my MOC! ...And now for some UPDATED SHOTS (based off constructive criticism)
  8. [MOC] Raiders at the Crossroads

    I really like this! Those archers were so well camouflaged that I didn't even see them until the 2nd photo. All the vegetation really makes this feel alive. Great work.
  9. What's your latest acquisition?

    The Tower of Orthanc arrived a few days ago (my birthday present this year, thankfully - that would have been a hefty wallet buster.) I spent a good five hours building it yesterday and finally found a spot for it today; it's easily my favorite display piece now and the flagship of the LotR line. Took a few shots of it just now. I'll probably rebuild the Orc Forge set to have a small Isengard diorama.
  10. I'd really like to see a Joker minifigure that depicts him from Batman: The Animated Series. It's never going to happen, but that's my favorite Joker for sure.
  11. [MOC/WIP] Hobbiton and Bag End

    Great work so far; keep it up! Is the party tree and grounds (where Bilbo has his 111th birthday) on your agenda anytime soon?
  12. Vanguard Keep

    This is one of the best MOC's I've seen yet. Very impressive work. I do have one question about some of these large-scale MOC's. How do you get most of your bricks; from other sets? Ordering them all separately? I'm still very new to building original works with Lego and often wonder how people acquire all their bricks. Thank you.
  13. [MOC] Native American Ambush

    I hope Dr. Kilroy doesn't get scalped.
  14. Travelers Rest (First MOC)

    That African Grey Parrot perching above is going to steal the traveler's drumstick.
  15. The Council of Elrond (expanded set)

    To be fair, Gandalf is a roaming wizard that does as he pleases. His cape should have a crumpled appearance for strong authenticity.
