If there are any parents out there, please warn your children about the addictive nature of bricklink. That said, lets get this party started.
I would like to introduce the eggplant brewing company sitting ontop of the magestic eggplant island.
From the upper levels you can see the highly un-utilized dance floor. This is preserved for late night occasion.
The island is more of a three quarters island. A pennisula per se
Bar Keep, I'd like another Mekong. Yes of course you can keep the change.
Wait a minute. Is that Joe Fullerschimdt with glow sticks on the party level?
The elite eggplant guard says this is an exclusive party.
Keg Stand!!! 27-28-29-30!!
I'm only using original photos except a few of them I removed the background and replaced with white or black
Originally built a guard house, but it gets in the way of the money views.
The brewing company is 72 bricks high on a base of 80x80 and about 10,000 pieces by my best estimate. My Lego collection swelled about 7,000 pieces in the process of building this to about ~21,000 total pieces mostly castle theme.
(edit 6/17) Ok, so I just finished demolition and counted all of the pieces and it turns out to only be 8,255. I have a lot more respect for Bob Carney now for counting his 25,000 piece castle. Amazing.

Very possibly the best castle I have ever seen. 21,000 bricks is more than my entire collection.

Wow! Thats very nice your the only person who can were out the curved wall and still make it look good (that was a complement). Yes I just love your building style light gray castle with curved walls on top of dark gray rocks and deep blue water.
Excellent creation. I love the trees, the height, and the realistic separation in the branches. I can't seem to add enough trees to my moc's. Trouble is those 3x4 and 5x6 tree leaves are getting pretty spendy when bought in large quantities.
One question, how do you get those circular towers to stand on a baseplate? Do you put 1x1 circular studs at the bottom? Please tell me :D. I really want to buy a bunch of bricks on bricklink and a baseplate and build a castle for my figs. :D
You had to warn my parents about Bricklink, didn't you? Now how am I going to spend all my money?! Anyway, overall this is one of the best Castle MOCs I have ever seen, I mean, that waterfall is just spurting win! And the rounded tower, whilst that's quite an old technique, it looks amazing! The trees are awesome as well, incredibly realistic. The landscaping doubles that...I mean, some of the most stunning I have ever seen. I would give you ten out of five if I could, but seeing as I can't, this will have to do.
Just amazing! I do have one question though. Who let in Fullerschmidt? (Nice plug, thanks) The water, brilliant. The archway, brilliant. The rock work, Kelsarific! The entire build is just a work of art. Your stuff is always worth the wait! ~ Chris.
If you've seen my stuff, you know I'm LOVIN' the arched rock and the water elements!!!! Just beautiful. Everything about this is well done, though. Color arrangements, layout, commentary, clean consistent look...and hey, it's about beer! Quite possibly my favorite castle creation this year...oh, $*&!...I'm rhyming. That's it, I'm oughta here...*&%!
Absolutely gorgeous! I love it with all its details: the amazing trees, the waterfall, rock structures of the island, the tower building techniques, and overall look... Perfect! Since I believe it´s not really supposed to be seen from behind, my only minor criticism - windows and more details on the backside - just vanish... Great job! Do you know if Brickling orders work internationally?
Happy Building & viele Grüße aus Deutschland, Steffen
