Hello everyone and welcome to my latest creation. This is another build based on The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. This one is based on the bit where Link climbs up Death Mountain to obtain the second Fused Shadow whilst the Gorons are trying to prevent any humans from reaching the top. I'm pretty pleased with it so please leave a comment about what you though. Thanks!
About this creation
A better look at the net and the ladder. This was the main reason why I made this MOC because for some reason the broken ladder halfway up a net in the game always stuck in my mind and I tried to think how I could replicate that in Lego.
If you look carefully you can see the rust on the metal frame. I'm really happy with how that turned out. It's my first proper attempt at rust.
The tree. I'm really pleased with this. I didn't originally intend to build it but when I put it on it made the MOC for me and so I kept it on. I'm really pleased with some of my part usage here. It looks like Hyrule's been invaded by a galaxy far, far away! I used both the bottom of Darth Vader's helmet and a Tusken Raider head. I also really like the roots sticking out. I tried to come up with a way to attach them but it looked too bulky.
Some plants on the other side. I like the use of the hairpiece.
A better view of the metal frame and net in the middle. This was actually the first part of the MOC that I built as It was my initial idea for something to build. This is also my first time where I used only light grey for rocks rather than dark grey. This was because I wanted the rocks to look different from the metal frame in the middle. I'm pleased with how it turned out and think that it works well with the dark tan. (which is good because the mountain is mostly beige in the game!) It was also fun because I have more of certain pieces in light grey than dark and could use them more often and vice versa.
The top of the mountain. I was originally planning to put a Goron up here but I couldn't come up with a good design. I started making one but it was way too big and made the MOC look ridiculous so I got rid of it.
Some pictures of Link himself. I really like this shot.
I'm still really pleased with my Link figure.
View from the top of the mountain. the net is attached by just sort of forcing it between plates. This probably isn't a purist technique but it works with enough weight on top of the plates!
The back. It looks messy but it is very sturdy!
Well that's it so thanks for taking a look. Please leave a comment if you liked it.
