Can you read the writing on the wall? Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.
About this creation
Yep, more walls. I like building them, and judging by the amount of hits the first incarnation got, you like looking at them. Works out pretty well, doesn't it? However, a word of warning if you are thinking of building your own walls: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME! I've found it to be extremely habit-forming.
I learned from my Mr. Black wall the last time and put some light-colored characters in this dark-colored setting.
Ooooh, the haunted wall section. One nice thing about populating these random wall segments is I can bust out all sorts of crazy minifigs and stuff that I would otherwise never use. Now that I think about it, the ghost should have been in the one before and the cat and rat should have been in this one. Oh well.
Caution, industrial zone. Flammable materials and hazardous whatnot. Always wear a helmet.
"I'm telling you for the last time, woman, I will NOT ask for directions because we are NOT LOST!"
"That's him, second from the right."
"Are you absolutely sure? Take your time..."
"Oh, no doubt about it. I'd recognize that evil face anywhere!"
Don't listen to Blue Oyster Cult -- Fear the Reaper!
I really love this wall; I was sure I had plenty of standard 1x2 slopes, but I was afraid I wouldn't have enough of the reverse slopes to pull it off.
And DO listen to BOC, by the way. Intellectual metal, baby.
Shady Deal part 2
Because who doesn't love sequels? And shady deals, for that matter. I originally designed this so the technic bricks would be flush with the rest of the wall, but I thought the back side, with the technic bricks recessed, ended up looking more interesting.
After a hard day of wall building, there's nothing I like better than to relax with a ludicrously oversized book.
I think I should have gone with a flat surface in a single color behind the ovoid slits, but after I'd gone to all the trouble of putting the grill tiles on I didn't feel like dismantling it to fix it. I do love me some grill tiles, but I go overboard with them sometimes. Admitting you have a problem is the first step.
Funny story about getting lost. 11 years ago I got lost and wouldn't admit it. Over a decade later, I still haven't asked and I'm married with a kid! One of these days I should really just ask and find my way out of here... But that would break guy code and we can't have that. ~ Chris.
Shannon Young? Overboard with grille tiles!? Never!

They are all brilliant... although I especially like the Shady Deal, and the one with the medieval minifigures in a sci-fi setting. It's good that walls finally get the attention they deserve (and I don't give them).
Ah, it's all there: imaginative building, witty commentry, walls, BOC. Lovely jubly! My fave is the "We ar not lost!" I have a challenge for your Walls part 3(Return of the Wall)...a LEGO graffiti wall...;)
Aaaaallrighty, then...I think I'll cast my vote for the Industrial Zone wall. Tough choice to make with the plethora (love usin' that word) of clever designs! So, uh...this isn't some some cathartic symbol of pent up social anxieties is it...I mean, you just seem so shy and withdrawn in all of your posts and reviews. (Yes! I'm being sarcastic, for those of you who've not enjoyed Shannon's witty, sardonic commentaries.)
