I made this Lego vignette as a gift for friends who recently had their first child.
An anomaly in the image of the ultra scan a few months ago, made the child's eyes appear as if he was wearing a Spiderman mask. As the parents had not found a name at the time, he was nicknamed "Spidey".
The theme of the vignette is based on this, and the fact that they live in Boston.
The two landmarks I included are the George Washington statue which can be found in the Boston Public Gardens, and the Federal Reserve building which can be seen in the background.
I tried to create a "forced perspective" with the latter by putting it into and behind the clouds, as well as putting some other parts in front of it.
The gift comes with card which also shows the thoughts and voices of the characters in the scene. In the main scene we have baby Spidey riding on Judge (the family Mastiff), chasing his first villain (and making a mess of the town). The parents are looking proudly on.
I made this model in MLCad first and sourced the bricks through Bricklink.
Please comment! :)

About this creation
Spidey Vignette. It looks so simple but I was amazed how difficult it was to sourece the parts for this in the right colors. Parts came from several Bricklink stores in Belgium, Germany and France.
Spidey "free" version for when/if, the nickname becomes obsolete.

Very nice creation, and very good story and description. I hope the new parents are happy with the gift. The construction is very good, although I think the forced perspective needs a little more space to work. The construction of the baby is geniuos, with minifig hands as arms!
Thanks so much for the comment and for blogging it!! I had not heard of that site before and I am very proud to be on it as there are some fantastic creations on there! Please leave me a rating at MOCpages too. :)
