This build went pretty quickly, but I had to have a bunch of minor changes, and it fell apart sometimes, along with trying to get an ok looking Brickbuilt Goblin... :D
Anyways, here are some more pics:
And as always, WIP pics:
So, if you didn't know, Round 1 of MELO is happening, and this is my entry to the contest, the Round 1 category is Poems/Songs, and I chose the Down To Goblin Town:
Clap! Snap! the black crack!
Grib, grab! Pinch, nab!
And down, down to Goblin town
You go, my lad!
Clash, crash! Crush, smash!
Hammer and tongs! Knocker and gongs!
Pound, pound, down underground!
Ho, ho! my lad!
Swish, smack! Whip crack!
Batter and beat! Yammer and bleat!
Work, work! Nor dare to shirk,
While Goblins quaff, and Goblins laugh,
Round and round far underground
Below, my lad!
Good luck to my fellow MELO contestants, this is gonna be a expected and fun journey! (Hooray for bad puns!) :D ;)
Cleverly done. The rockwork is excellent and those goblin figures are very creative. In the mass exodus from MOCpages to Flickr a few years back, I was one of the few who stayed, and I'm so glad I did. It's delightful to come back and see such high tier work from people like you. I also was the original founder of MELO (like half a decade ago), so it's awesome to see it's still going strong! All that said, have you considered also getting a Flickr photostream? Cheers. ~Ian
Nice goblins. A good use of parts and techniques. Reminds me of the days when highly detailed minifigs weren't available (did I just sound really old?), so custom figs were cobbled together just like that. Nostalgia!
Great way to approach this build, I like how organic it feels with all the angles and curves and multiple levels built in. And the use of the black bottom really helps the visual effect. The wood platforms are excellently done and so are the rocks. Bravo!
Very nice work mate! Those wooden walkways are down right awesome in their realism, and the goblins look great as well. You've certainly captured the magic of both the movies and the book. Well done and best of luck!
