If Amset-Ra were to collect all six treasures, a powerful giant would rise up under his command!
About this creation
Re-uploaded without the original comments on the pics. Enjoy! I still highly recommend Pharaoh's Quest sets to anyone and everyone. The theme's is simply amazing, with two great color schemes, fantastic figs, and a wide variety of interesting parts.
When Amset-Ra collects all six treasures, he can become invincible! However, he can alternatively awaken a powerful being, which, while temporarily rendering the six treasures powerless, has immense power and would be much faster for taking over the world! When defeated, the six treasures scatter throughout the desert and it's pilot goes into a deep sleep, to awaken 1000 years later. With one hand, it wields a blade of the desert, with tremendous slashing power! It's other hand is used for grabbing and crushing enemies. The being is covered with hieroglyphs, and was created in the beginning of time by Anubis-Worshiping priests. The Wrath of the Desert can use a fraction of the power of each of the six treasures, and is a deadly force.
Design Notes: I spent an HUGE amount of time on this-about 4 hours. Usually, I spend less than 30 minutes building something. I just had to do it, and I did. The easiest part was the legs, which usually are the hardest part for me. In contrast, the arms, which are usually the easiest to build (for me), were the hardest part. I started with some bad leg ideas, but then I built a center and around it made everything else. The head gave me some trouble, and at first I wanted to use ideas from the sphinx, but I decided upon my own design. It's not my favorite part though. I made about 95% of this from parts from: Scorpion Pyramid (PQ), Ostrich Race (PoP), Cursed Cobra Statue (PQ), Flying Mummy Attack (PQ). I used a few parts from my parts bins, although I believe that some of them were in the parts and I was just too lazy to find them. And I hate my camera. Today, of all days, it's killing my work...
Wait...you consider 4 hours a huge amount of time on something? Oh, man, do we need to talk! ;-) Anywho, absolutely LOVE the idea on this one. Nice job in the design, too. Solid color work, a clean build...yep...definitely worth the work you put into it. Nicely done!
