It's no joke; it's a rope, Tuco. Now I want you to get up there and put your head in that noose.
About this creation
Just a simple little vignette I made for a movie vignette contest on my forums (SSLF). It's the last scene in The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly... the third in the famous series of westerns starring Clint Eastwood known as the Man With No Name trilogy.
"You see that's what Bill Carson told me... It's in the grave marked 'Unknown'... right beside Arch stanton."
In TGTBTU, Blondie (Clint Eastwood, the Good), Tuco (the Ugly), and Angel Eyes (Lee Van Cleef, the Bad) are all searching for a box of gold hidden in a graveyard.
I was going to give Clint (Blondie) a regular LEGO cowboy hat, but it looked all wrong. He always, ALWAYS... wears a flat-brimmed hat, not a curvy Country Singer looking one like LEGO made. So I just put this Adventurers' hat on him. Just ignore the curved-up part on the back. Pretend it's the wind.
I avoided using decals, but I did use a marker (for the UNKNOWN sign) and some cloth cut-outs (for the jacket, poncho, and bags of gold). And of course the rope (taken from a blanket lying around the house... since LEGO's black ropes just wouldn't look right). Heh. Enjoy!
This is one of my all-time favorite movies. The setting is gritty, the characters are badass, and you just can't beat the music.
The vig is about as true to this classic western as you can get using Lego bricks. Nice work.
