When that rumor of Elflands as a theme in 2009 started going around and people were posting elf MOCs on Brickshelf out the wazoo, I wanted to do one of my own, but one that could look like it would actually be made into an Elflands set, hence the working ballista and lack of back wall.
About this creation
This lodge is basically meant to be some sort of rest stop in the forest where elves can stop and take a break from doing, well, whatever elves do. The top floor features more of the good stuff that went into making this elaborate treehouse.
This is my sole elven minifig. I wish those green gungan torsos were easier to come across...
As you can see, elves are simplistic creatures who hold interior decorating at a low priority.
This is about the extent of the Wood Lodge's furniture... One gold dish.
The ballista actually fires. I wanted to get some sort of functional device into this creation to make it look like it could actually be found on a store shelf in a lego box.
