  1. This moc took me 8 hours to build and has 382 parts. I built this thinking "Wow, this is a scary dragon!" I don't know how well that image came out in my model but if I saw this dragon flying towards me I would run! I would love to know what I can do better next time and what you liked about it. Building instructions are available for extremely cheap for this size and scale! The parts list is in the ebay ad. Buy Instructions HERE: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/LEGO-MOC-Lego-SMAUG-custom-PDF-Instructions-Lord-of-the-Rings-Hobbit-movies-/222666110319?hash=item33d7ef356f:g:e3MAAOSwjTlZiH6P
  2. 'Come now, don't be shy, step into the light!' By looking at this line, I think it is clear that I have Smaug the stupendous in this amazing set. He appeared in the movie The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in 2013. I bought it in Hong Kong while I was traveling with my wife for honeymoon. Lets get started. Overview Name: The Lonely Mountain. Theme: The Hobbit Year: 2014 Pieces: 866 pieces Minifigures: 5 and a dragon Price: £99.99 / $129.99 / 129.99€ Introduction Durin's day is ending and they still can't find the keyhole of the secret door. But Bilbo isn't giving up hope after the sun went down. Knocking and gnawing at the grey stone wall while the dwarves leave the mountain, he finally found the key hole when the moon light shines onto the door. The 'last light' meant the moon light! He yells at the company and Thorin picked up the key left to him by his father Thrain, opens up the secret door and found this treasure in it, 79018. The Box As usual the box art is amazing. The dark green background is very nicely matched with this sand green LEGO set. At the front of the box you can see the battle between the dwarves and Smaug is going on and quite a lot of gold is used in this set. At the back, the dwarves are busy preparing while Smaug sneaks around to find them. Lots of play features in this set and the minifgures are very nice showing at the side of the box. The Instruction This book is thick, with hard binding at the side. There is love and hate to this kind of booklet. The love is there is only one book to keep and the hate of course is that it is hard to stay in place when you are building unless you really fold it at the page turner which is quite damaging to the bindings. In the list, you can only find six dwarves in the whole series unlike the thirteen ones at the previous sets. Maybe the other dwarves were less seen in the movie. The Minifigures In this set, you get five exclusive minifigures and one exclusive Dragon, The Smaug. Before this set was launched, we all thought that LEGO would be lazy enough to use the old castle dragon as Smaug but it turns out that this new mold of dragon is very awesome! In this picture, the head sculpture of Smaug captured all the details very accurately. 'My teeth are sword' and the burning eyes are nicely carved out. These four dwarves and Bilbo gets new armors and new weapons. Dwalin is holding a pearl gold axe with trans green axe, Kili with a 'Morgul Blade', Fili gets back his old double sword and Balin has his dark red club. I suppose the Lonely Mountain really housed loads of treasure for them. All of them has alternate face except Dwalin as he is bald. All the dwarves are angry, Bilbo is truly scared of meeting Smaug. Under the beard. Both of them have nicely printed torso under their bulky beard. The belts are amazingly designed and you can see wrinkles and battle damaged faces of Balin and Dwalin. The arms are also using very nice metalic color to assimilate the armor they are wearing. The comparison between casual wear dwarves and working attired dwarves. Same as Bilbo with three different outfit. The designs are totally different and all of them are from different sets. By looking at them you can appreciate the financial condition of them before and after claiming Erebor. Again, Santa is here and he is very different from Balin. The Dragon, Smaug! 'Take your cover!' Now you can see the full picture of this ferocious beast. The wings are made of silicone (I think) to make the flaps fold. It has two legs with the claws at the wings as his hands just like the movie. I think this is the largest dragon LEGO has ever produced. He stood up to 24 cm tall, 47.5 cm long and 42.5 cm wide. You can see when the wings are closed, he still can stand properly and the claws can be bent to make him more stable on the floor. The body part printing is so detailed that you can see what Girion did back in the years with his black arrow. The wings are attached to his body with a three holed ball joint. This makes him very widely pose-able. You can turn the wings 180 degree each side. He cannot be ride as there are no seat given at the back of the spiky body. However please be careful as the center black spike on a jumper is quite loose and you might lost it. The tail is also exclusive to him and its quite long if you look at it sideway. Lets have some dental check up for this yellow teeth fella. There are a few degree of mouth opening for him and if you look at the picture you can imagine Benedict Cumberbatch's voice talking. All of them represents different expressions I think. First degree- talking, Second degree- yelling, and when the fire attached, you know what he means. haha. Look into the throat, you can see a stud hole for fire attachment which is much nicer compare to old dragons. For comparison, you can see Smaug is much more larger in size compare to the dragon from the castle set 70403. Old dragon has two hands, with a pair of stiff and smaller wings. Tail design is different too and I think Smaug is much more superior than this old dragon of LEGO. Lets look at the mouth. Fire from chin is so much old school but it had its place back then. This is an old picture taken before real Smaug was introduced. Quite decent at that time for a dragon. The Build The gold 'mountain'. This is a three layered build which you can store treasures inside. At the bottom layer, you get a pearl black long sword and a trans green goblet which is very nice, and second layer with three different colored gems. The lid with gold cup makes the third layer. I liked all these gold pieces stacking around each other. There are plenty of nice small builds in this set as in the picture. Thorin's chair was decorated with stickers and a trans clear printed round tile representing the Arkenstone. As comparison, Theoden looks much poorer with a small throne. haha. The second build is the chain pulley pulling a bucket. It was attached loosely to the railway so that it can slide along it. Lots of technic pieces in this build and I like the chain. The brown knob is to turn the wheel and raise or release the bucket of gold. This build is a furnace filled with dome shaped gold and a long pole to be attached into the pin hole. Its a quite large furnace designed to launch piles of molten gold to attack the dragon. As you can see, the furnace can be turned 360 degree to aim. Firstly you load the bucket with gold. Then you raise the bucket. Pour it into the furnace. Then launch the gold! To my pocket please. haha After a few hours of building, this is the full build of The Lonely Mountain. The use of sand green pieces are very nice matched with some grey and brown. This dwarvish mine is very nicely designed and its large enough for Smaug to play around and smacking the pillars. Quite some annoying stickers to be applied but with Smaug and Arkenstone I don't complain much. One more play feature at the front of the build. Stay tuned, the back is also interesting! The black round knob is to push the ladder under the throne. The secret door with a key hole, and a pile of gems with the Arkenstone on top of it. If you notice, on top of the Arkenstone there is a BURP piece to make the bulk of the stone at the front. "Stand by the grey stone when the thrush knocks, and the setting sun with the last light of Durin's Day will shine upon the key-hole" I am FIRE. ConclusionThe Smaug made up the whole value to this set. I bought this because of the dragon and others are a bonus to the set. Smaug is very pose able but need great skill to take good shot of him. Most of the angle makes him look ugly. The build is adequate to the size of the dragon and of course you can buy a few more sets to enlarge it. The minifigures are all exclusive to the set and makes this set much more worthy to get.Review SummaryPlayability: 9/10 - The mechanisms are great to be play with like the actions in the movie while they are fighting the dragon!Design / Building Experience: 9/10 - The GOLD pieces and the sand green pillars are so nicely used in the set instead of all grey like in the movie.Minifigures: 9/10 - Great minifigures! All the printings and the details exceeds all expectations.Price / Value for money: 9/10 - I think the value of the money spent for this set goes to the Serpent from the North. Overall: 9/10 - I bought it in 2014, and after three years, I still bring out Smaug and play with him. Run Bilbo! 'Don't be shy...' Hope you enjoy the review. Please leave your comments towards this set. Thank you.
  3. I'm Smaug's brother, i‘m a firedragon too, are you scared?
  4. Warning: This thread might cause discomfort with your current dragon situation. Viewer discretion is advised. The Dragonification of Smaug the Wyvern Ever since the discussion whether Smaug was a wyvern or a dragon came up, I felt the need to give arms to the ultimate LEGO creature. According to some, dragons without arms are merely wyverns and therefore sad creatures. Would I dare to lay hands (pun intended) on such a marvellous creature? Would I dare drilling holes in it? Modified Smaug side by MWardancer, auf Flickr Modified Smaug total by MWardancer, auf Flickr Modified Smaug - The Last Thing You Ever Shall See by MWardancer, auf Flickr Modified Smaug showing his new claws by MWardancer, auf Flickr Modified Smaug from above by MWardancer, auf Flickr Customization notes: Buying two dark red arms is cheap and easy, so I decided to use techniques which would mess up the arms and not Smaug's body if things go wrong. When customizing a minifigure, you have to throw away parts sometimes because you destroyed them with paint, glue or drills. You cannot do that with an expensive dragon torso. Unlike the green fantasy dragon or similar molds, Smaug's front is much slimmer and curved. There is no flat straight surface where you could simply attach dragon arms. They would have big gaps and wrong angles. So I needed to carve and sand the arms to fit a threedimensional plain. This was easier than I thought. Also at this point there is no risk damaging the body yet. Then I drilled the holes to attach the arms. This fortunately worked well. Attaching the arms afterwards took over an hour because the pins I attached would not stick. The arms cannot move. It is impossible to achieve that because of the uneven shape of the torso.

    Smaug the Terrible

    Smaug the Terrible by Chris Yee, on Flickr Smaug the Terrible, Chiefest of Calamities and the one of the main antagonists in "The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug". With the many references available, I had chosen to focus heavily on the facial features to capture the menacing personality of the fire drake. The creation had taken about 6 months of planning, purchasing and research followed by 200+ hours of production building with over 10,000 parts (excluding the gold pile), ready for the Christchurch Brick Show 2016, held over the 16-17 July weekend. This was my first foray into organic building using bricks as I've been working with Bionicle and Technic based systems for many years, so this end result I am quite pleased with. Initially Smaug was to stand about 70cm in height, 60cm in length and about 40cm wide. Due to a structural deficiency in the neck construction (the night before the show setup, I might add), the majority of the neck was cast aside to have the head and first few neck segments laying atop of my entire collection of gold elements, which took up 2x 2 litre containers. Many thanks to Legonardo for helping replenish my gold stores, WIP feedback, and for the great photo of the creation. Smaug is currently on its way to Wellington where it will be displayed in other various exhibits and events in the months to come. Enjoy Chris
  6. Hello everybody In the last week I finally finished my latest creation so far - it shows Thorin and his company fighting in the mines of Erebor against Smaug. Due to the fact that I always wanted to make a MOC with Smaug I decided to make a creation of this scene. Into the Fire by Balbo ., auf Flickr The technique for the ground is inspired by Speedyhead ( www.imperiumdersteine.de/index.php?/topic/43772-die-thraw... ) from the LUG imperiumdersteine.de :) I wish you all a happy new year and all the best for 2016 Thanks for watching!
  7. Hi everyone, First big try with a licenced theme - I wanted to recreate a famous scene from The Hobbit, the awakening of Smaug : It was created to be displayed in 2 Lego events in France, I wanted to show a much more frightening dragon than the official one (and slightly bigger ^^) Hardest part of the build was to deal with the weight and orientation of the neck and head. Bad day for Bilbo : Details for the dragon's head (maybe some improvements will be done for the eyes) : The shape of the head is maybe not very movie-accurate but it was recognized by the audience, that was enough for me A last pic, with a look at the dragon's mouth : Hope you'll like it

    WIP: MOC Smaug

    Hello, I am currently working on my own version of Smaug. Currently this looks like this: I am interested to get your feedback! Have a nice weekend! Yours ArchitectureFan
  9. Follow the adventure of a hero (Steve) who sets out to free the land of the fierce Ender Dragon. My goal with this film was to take on Minecraft with a medieval theme. For the medieval aspect I was inspired by Skyrim and Lord of the Rings. I'm not the best expert there is on Minecraft but I tried to incorporate as many main elements there are from the game that makes it so unique into the story. I completed the film in 10 days. I had to cut out some scenes from the original story due to animation scheduling conflicts. Also if your following the DC/Marvel crossover series be sure to stay for the post credit scene. Things are going to get heated up starting in the next chapter.

  10. In this re-envisioning of the classic story, Bilbo decides that he's had enough of adventure and stays in Lake-Town while the dwarves continue on to the Lonely Mountain. Once Smaug arrives with a score to settle with the Lake-men, he realizes that maybe he shouldn't have stayed behind after all... The Wrath of Smaug by lancethecat, on Flickr
  11. "He gazed for what seemed an age, before drawn almost against his will, he stole from the shadow of the doorway, across the floor to the nearest edge of the mounds of treasure. Above him the sleeping dragon lay, a dire menace even in his sleep. He grasped a great two-handled cup, as heavy as he could carry, and cast one fearful eye upwards. Smaug stirred a wing, opened a claw, the rumble of his snoring changed its note... Thieves! Fire! Murder! Such a thing had not happened since first he came to the Mountain! His rage passes description - the sort of rage that is only seen when rich folk that have more than they can enjoy suddenly lose something that they have long had but have never before used or wanted. His fire belched forth, the hall smoked, he shook the mountain-roots." ~ J.R.R Tolkien, The Hobbit Here's my entry for the MEC category C. The Lord of the Rings brought me out of my dark ages so I had to get at least one build up for this contest...Now lets see if I can get something built for the other two categories before the deadline . A few more pictures below, and still a few more on flickr.

    [MOC] Fire ant Water

    Hello My recent build is once again from Middleearth and shows Smaug's attack at Lake Town. The whole build basically finished before i got the chance to watch the second Hobbit movie the first time, so the houses of Lake Town and Smaug are result of the description in the book and my own imagination. Next to fitting proportions and the general organic look it was important for me to realize the iconic gold belly of Smaug. More pictures on MOCpages. I hope you like it! Jonas

    [MOC] On the Doorstep

    Hello Everyone. I would like to share my most recent MOC of one of my favourite scenes in The Desolation of Smaug. On the Doorstep. by SandMirror38, on Flickr Not a big build, and probably not very accurate to the film as I based it a little more from my imagination then the film... I had originally planned to keep this secret -like a fair few builds I've made recently- for Brickvention but I found that MELO was open again for 2014 and decided to enter it there! So yes there is 3 or 4 ,ore builds coming in 3 weeks or so and they are huge in comparison to sizes I normally build at ..... On the Doorstep. by SandMirror38, on Flickr And finally a little photography shot of Bilbo. "It's the Moon!" by SandMirror38, on Flickr And that is a lot darker then what it appeared on my Laptop. So C&C is welcome! Drop by my MOCPages page http://mocpages.com/moc.php/378198 Have a nice day, Kind Regards, Sand38

    MOC: Smaug the Micro

    Smaug the Magnificent Micro He loves Gold! I have to say this is the smallest Smaug I’ve ever seen or built (Heh heh). Anyways I wish so much that I could make a massive Smaug, however my gold hoards are rather low for that, so I settled with Micro. Although don’t you call my micro hoard puny—those coins are as big as 12 micro hobbits! This works quite well for another Middle Earth Micro like my Orthanc. Smaug himself was quite a challenge to make at this scale, but I settled with some piles of red bricks to give the impression of him. In all actuality he’s only made from two red minifigure hands, two red plums, and a red snake. And yes, it was a painful process to pile up those coins and then place a dragon on it. Enjoy! ~Nemo
