Balrog - Version 1 . My interpretation of Tolkien's Balrog; version-one. . This is version-one of my interpretation of Tolkien’s Balrog. And as you can see, I have opted to go with the winged version as opposed to the non-winged version – I think it looks meaner. This was certainly an effort in patients as I put together elements and tore them apart again. The torso alone was a weekend’s worth of spare time. I finally, after 4-months, sat back down and worked on this until it was finished while watching Noein with my kids. They chipped in their thoughts and helped me choose parts for this beast (it truly was a beast to build). I have to admit I even took hammer and chisel to a couple of “Brick, Modified 2 x 2 with Pin Hole, Rotation Joint Ball Half (Horizontal Top), Rotation Joint Socket” to allow for the placement of these pieces in the thighs. This was allow me to use them as the hips. I have to admit it was not an easy decision and I prayed to the Lego God for forgiveness. All other parts are stock Lego. Things I am going to change for version-two 1)Change the torso to make it a bit shorter and wider to match the scale of the other elements. 2)Change the wings to a frame and fabric design to allow for much larger wings 3)May add some of the LED bricks to act as fire 4)Change the shoulder pieces to ones similar to the hips 5)Possibly make the legs longer, especially the foot to give it more of a bestial look 6)Add the Moria bridge scene (far future at this point) Hope you enjoy this creation, and I would like to thank Justin for the inspiration for the whip. Don’t forget to check out Bricklink for all the lovely parts you could possibly desire. As a personal experience, shipping from England and Australia is very reasonable – about the same for small orders as from the States. www.leejones.ca
