Since i read the Hobbit it was on my to-build list to try my hands on the iconic dragon Smaug. At least the Middle Earth Lego Olympics start, what gave me the last push.
I chose the Dark-Riddle: 3. It cannot be seen, cannot be felt, cannot be heard, cannot be smelt. It lies behind stars and under hills, and empty holes it fills. It comes first and follows after, ends life, kills laughter.
Not only it's night, when Smaug comes from the Lomley Mountain to Lake Town, but in addition the dragon bring pain and destruction about the poor village.
Burning homes, wounded and dead inhabitants.
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.
Spontaneously i thought about changing the category in "wind", but that was only a problem of my outdoor photo shooting and not theme of the build itself. ;)
I hope everyone is fair enough not to spoiler anything from the new movie, because there are always a few people who didn't saw it yet.
Congrats for coming first in the MELO Round 1, this is such an awesome creation, one that you can tell you put in a lot of effort, you definitely deserved your ranking, can't wait to see your other creations for the next rounds :)
Spectacular build. Love the inclusion of gold pieces in the belly, it's the details like that which really make me respect the time you put into this. Brilliant stuff, hope your creations remain just as terrific in the new year.
Hey Legopard!It does not have to be a movie - often is a book and your imagination to the content more - a film often destroys own thoughts. I do not know what you had built, after you had seen the movie, but this one is FIRST CLASS. Ihope you understand what I want to say. An Excellent five from me
....I'm...Speechless...Such an awesome build! Love Smaug, especially the way you got the gold in there...The buildings are great,and man are they accurate! Keep building Awesomely...I intend to build stuff this awesome...one day!
