About this creation











Today I present my latest build Strider's Corner. I had a TON of fun building this! The hardest part was probably getting all the brown pieces, but I would do it again. Anyway, let's go on with the build!

To begin, I will ask you to find a photo of the scene in the film to compare and contrast the two, which will also allow you to see what I'm trying to poorly explain (xP).

All right, the first picture (or second, depending how you see it) is of the window, right? Interestingly, the window in the film was kinda in a LEGO-brick-set layout, making it look fairly similar. The window sill was fun to build, but it took awhile to figure out how to get it to look like right.

Following our first shot, we have the table and floor, two interesting pieces. The table is fairly simple, though I think it looks okay. When I built the floor it was based off of what we see when Frodo disappears. In the movie it was a stone slab look, held together by a binding mixture (I'm thinking cement, but I'm not sure). It was a common look, but a cool one. The light grey are the slabs, and the dark grey is the binding. I think it turned out nicely.

Now we're at the booth. Sorry for the not-so-nice-picture of it, my picture couldn't focus enough for a better shot. Anyway, if you can see it, there is some slight texturing to the "wood" like the one in the film. Now, I know it's hard to tell, but after some searching I learned that the booth is in fact wood, not stone. I've only seen two other Strider Corner MOCs, the one incredibly detailed though it lacked the window and was made to look like stone (I would recommend searching for it. It's awesome!), the other not as detailed though it had more film-y aspects, such as the window. If you would like, I may make an alternate version using light grey, but only if you'd like.

And finally, we have a picture of the Aragorn minifigure I used. Now, I know he had a dark green cloak, but due to cape-compliancy, I couldn't use it. I think the black works though, right? Because I don't have a photo of it, I'll just mention it here. The ceiling was based off a drawing I saw which depicted a dark tan base with beams running across it, supposedly intersecting at some point.

The final photo is purely for nostalgia and a tip-of-the-hat to the original scene. ;) Plus, I like making those transparent pieces glow, and it turned out kinda nice (I may retake a better one and edit this post).

Thanks for reading this long post everyone, I hope you enjoyed seeing it! Feel free to like, comment, critic or complement below, I would love to hear your thoughts on it. I hope you have a nice day, and hopefully I'll be able to chat with you guys and gals!

"He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that shadowed his face; but the gleam in his eyes could be seen as he watched the Hobbits."

Good thing I didn't sharpie it then... xP I used erasable marker. Well, better to find out now than later... If I may be so bold as to inquire, why is it looked down upon?
