About this creation
This model was based on set 21132 from the Minecraft theme, which was expanded and modified to be quite a bit larger with surrounding land features and a second room.



To reach the temple, Johnny Thunder had to follow a certain map: the only problem was a 17th century pirate had the other half of said map on his ship. To find the temple, he had to find pirate, who had already answered the question and become immortal. Upon finding him, the pirate gave the map (and some advice) to Johnny, who then had it stolen by Lord Sam Sinister. After following Sam to the hidden island and the temple therein, Johnny and company have to think fast to stop Sam from getting to the ancient guardian first!



The rear of the temple. The sliding mechanism on the right side of the back reveals the "treasure" in the first room. Also, the lair of the tiger-man creature in the center rock formation is not very big, but it works for my purposes!



Three switches are inside the first room. The two outer ones will unlock the the mechanism to reveal a treasure chest, while the middle one is a dummy lever.



With the two outer levers flipped down, the chest is revealed. However, inside this chest is a Pandora's box of sorts: opening it will let out a bright light for 30 seconds or so, as it sucks those unfortunate enough to see the light into the infinitely larger space in the chest and then slams shut on itself. (kinda like the Ark of the Covenant from "Raiders of the Lost Ark")

In universe, this box will be taken by Sam Sinister as he thinks it contains the treasure he seeks. Meanwhile the good guys notice the door to a second room and crawl through it as soon as the bad guys leave with the false treasure.





The tiger-man creature from the 2003 "Orient Expedition" line will go alongside this jungle temple, even though their are no tigers in South America. I still need to order that figure along with at least 75 trees, and maybe a couple machetes or plant monsters as well. Oh, and a spider for the web on the front of the model.

This secret second room holds the treasure guardian statue, and a back exit from the temple via a damaged wall. Just be careful not to wake the mighty tiger-man on your way out!

In-universe description:

The real treasure is inside the second room: after seeing the notched arrows placed by the pirate many years ago on the first room's walls, Johnny finds the small secret door and enters this room to find the guardian and five jewels. (four on walls, one on the staff in guardian's hand) The statue awakens, and asks for a member of the party to come forward to receive the question. Heeding the pirate's advice, he sends Miss Pippin Reed to do the honors, as she alone can answer what no man can answer. (she is no man, after all) After relaying the answer via whisper, her mind is wiped of the question and answer, and is given the choice of immeasurable wealth, eternal life or infinite knowledge. She chooses not to choose, saying the gifts are too large for one person (or group of people) to share. Thus, the adventurers walk back out to the empty clearing and plant dynamite and blow the temple sky-high, thus destroying any chance of anyone, good or evil ever getting the question right again.

BUILDER'S NOTES:

This model was based on set 21132 from the Minecraft theme, which was expanded and modified to be quite a bit larger with surrounding land features and a second room.
