Dr. Doom continues his evil schemes and the Avengers have had enough. Tony Stark has asked to meet with Doom in regards to his recent attack on Manhattan. Will this meeting be on peaceful terms? Or will this meeting between Doom and the Avengers bring about even more conflict? One thing is for certain, you can never trust Victor Von Doom!
About this creation
Here is the whole MOC. Lots of fun building this one
So glad I keep my sticker sheets. Using the Latveria symbol, was perfect for those flags
I wanted to go for a very dark and evil/gothic castle vibe with this build, those Braziers totally help with that I think
The Big Stained Glass Window and two paintings... Doom really needs an interior designer, two of the same paintings? Not very Feng Shui!
Can't wait to see the MCU Dr. Doom btw, We need a good cinematic Doom man...
Sentry, Iron Man and Captain Marvel stand before Doom... Man I mean with a last name like Doom you kinda have to be a Super Villain right?
Ahhh rails with spikes on them... dude imagine slipping and BAM! you're dead... practical no, but they look pretty cool no?
Side details, I wanted to go over the top and just have lots of large things like big flags, a large window etc. I wanted things to be in your face, large and egotistical... you know very Doom-y
Doom means business...
Man having to light these everyday, what a great way to light a room! Clapping lights? Pffttt I got flame torches to light my room!
Doom's throne... funnily enough this design was used in Volsung Hall, but the detail was a tad hard to see with Eli's side on top. So I reused it here :)
"Ah Avengers, you've come here to meet your Doom... and me Victor"
Some of Doom's Magic scrolls and things... Man Doom just leaves a heart on the side of his table... that's pretty impressive and intimidating... nothing says don't mess with me like, oh hey man I got a heart sitting next to my paperwork.
Lots of wine and chicken... Dude does Doom eat with his mask on? Or does he take it off to eat? Surely he'd get sauce and stuff all over his mask from eating?
Can't wait to get official FF figures by the way!
Sweet Stained Glass Window... Man if I ever re-did this I'd love to do a mosaic with trans plates that is just an imagine of Doom, so egotistical :P
Latverian flags, man two big flags and a big green carpet right next to torches and fire? Totally a fire hazard! Where is the Fire inspector? He'd be appalled!
All the detail at the top of the room
This bit was fun to build... and no I won't show photos of the back, I totally misused a bunch of good parts for structure haha
A better look at the Avengers figures
Fourth Wall Commentary:
As many of you know I love Castle building, it's so easy to pack in detail with that theme, which is why it's one of my favourite things to do when building. So Castle and Marvel in the one vig? Why not! I've had the Doom figure lying around since I bought the set it came in, so what's that... 2013? Man 5 years now. Anyway yes super glad I finally got to use this figure in a MOC. For me collecting figs is fun, it's nice to have them sure, but it's only worth it when I can put them in a MOC. So I used this MOC as a way to display some other figs that I have yet to come up with concepts for MOC's to put them in. The Sentry figure is from bigkidbrix, if you are wondering ;)
But yeah, love building throne rooms like this, makes me want to do more, it was great fun to combine two of my favourite themes in the one vig like this. Would love to do it again!
Thanks all, haha excellent point MC :P I saw it as a show of strength, a kinda don't mess with us Doom, I'm sure he thinks he could handle them though lol ... Oh man a Dinner Mask, So hope he has a happy, Jealous and Angry Mask too haha :P
Wow! Love everything about this one, but especially the braziers and the flag designs. You've done a great job capturing the Doom-aesthetic that he always seems to have. Great job! And yes, I'm just as excited for a good cinematic Doom. Going to be great, me thinks.
The Sentry?! What's he doing there? And Captain Marvel? Look, I know Doom is powerful, but he's not all powerful... well, most of the time. But I think Tony might be going a bit too far. Doom's not going to want to have peace talks if you come into his home thinking you need to bring your toughest people just to talk, or would he find that endearing as you measure him to be such an adversary that you would require such power to confront him if things escalated. Crazy people are hard to predict. This throne room is lovely. I like the colors, the details, the egotism of it all, it is very befitting. And you mentioned eating, his mouth is usually covered with some grating of some kind. It depends on who is drawing him. I imagine he probably drinks things all the time with the mask on, but food would be more difficult. Maybe he has a dining mask? And there has to be one for night that opens things up so his apnea doesn't act up. XD
