My contribution to V-Lug's 2014 Collaborative at Brickworld.
About this creation
Just a quick post for my Hades build. This was part of VirtuaLUG's 2014 collaborative build at Brickworld this year. As always our team came together and pounded out a massive display for all to enjoy. I am certainly privileged to be part of such a fine group of builders.
1) Hades (A collab within a collab): Lee Jones with help from Dave Kaleta, Tyler Halliwell, Denis Price, Dano Jones, Danette Jones, Kevin Walter, and many more for onsite construction of same - you guys rock!
2) 192 X 192 studs (25sqft) - consisted of eight 48 x 96 sections.
3) 200-hours build time
4) Driven 3,000km to BW
5) A month's worth of black slope production by Lego ;-)
6) Curved archway by offsetting the front and rear sections of the wall. Tiled to make it look like brickwork.
7) Magnetic lifted platform (reverse polarity magnets)
8) Under-lit lava-river, which consisted of 4x 48x48 trans-clear baseplates - price = ouch.
9) Rotating vertical vortex.
10)Custom toga figures created by Brickforge.

Not just Master Builder but class act altogether. Congrats for SEVERAL massive displays that are truly exceptional and awe inspiring. It was a pleasure meeting you and starting a great relationship on the most kick-arse foot ever. Congratulations Doc!
Quoting --R.K. Blast--
Brilliant job! Question; Why are there those multi-coloured dispenser-things scattered throughout all of the collab builds?
Each year the Master Builder of the year before spams everybody's build with something. First it was a scorpion, then Simon Liu stepped up the game with the spaceship frog, this year it was a gumball machine. Stressing out already for what I am going to spam builds with next year...
The volume of work you put together for this year's BW is just insane, Lee! Incredible work to begin with, and then the scale just puts it over the top. (Loved seeing shots of the POA as well!) Congratulations, I might add, Master Builder. You may argue the point, but I can think of no one more deserving. As a member of the community and VLUG, my heartfelt thanks for all of your inspiration and contributions. And one last thing...I've not forgotten about our agreement. I'll touch base via email soon to discuss some options. Take care, amigo, and well done!!!
