About this creation
My entry for Round 5 of the 2014-15 Middle Earth Lego® Olympics.


My opponent, Joseph Olson and his creation.

Category: Gollum



For this category, I went with the scene where Gollum leads the two hobbits, Frodo and Samwise, into the Dead Marshes. In this area, Gollum actually helps the Hobbits, and shows his "Smeagol" personality at times...

Enjoy the photos!



















Underneath all the swamps there are bodies of deceased soldiers and goblins, and unfortunately, they are really hard to see, so a picture would be a waste. Additionally, I made the swamp a mosiac of Gollum's head, based off of this mosaic made by Alex Rode. Of course, his turned out way better, but you can somewhat see something here... It is hard to see because of the color choices (so that is what that sand green is doing in the creation in case any of you are wondering :)













Thanks for looking! God Bless!

Brilliant! Such a bleak environment. You've captured the spirit of this scene quite well. Love all the vegetation and nice work on the ugly black sludge. Top notch work.

I tied to build this scene during last year's MELO. But i gave up after an initial try. This build is exactly the effect i was looking for. Wonderful swamp work. You have my vote.

The mosaic of Gollum is hard to see, but the rest of the build was done very well. Love the color choices, and all those dark tan and olive green plants make it look very "dead". The tree is also very cool. Best of luck in the final round!

I have a hard time seeing the Gollum mosaic, and the minifig Gollum blends into the background and is difficult to see in many of the pics. Nevertheless, this is a fantastic swamp with lots of great details. A creepy part of the movie and creepier part of the book. Well realized. Great job.

While this was a hard choice, your mosaic of Gollum (which I couldn't make out until the really bright picture) is a fantastic idea, and won me over. You have my bow.
