In a place not to far from here and now... the end of the world approaches.
About this creation
Bloodrust Mansion: It's mid afternoon, but a cloud of darkness still covers the sun. This is cursed by the vampire lord, the Count of Groundsoaking Blood. Through the deafening silence, the faint sound of an object being dragged can be heard.
The Mansion door creaks open suddenly, and out steps a figure wrapped in a red scarf, dragging a coffin. This is Django, vampire hunter, intent on ridding the world of the undead. Inside the coffin is the spirit of the Count.
The coffin is placed in the center of the Piledriver, a massive device used for focusing the rays of the sun to destroy the remains of a vampire. Master Otenko, a sentient sunflower who acts as a mentor to Django, prepares the Piledriver to vanquish the Count of Groundsoaking Blood.
The Piledriver begins...
And out springs the spirit of the Count! Taiyoh!
4th Wall Commentary begins here --> Boktai is one of the greatest games I've ever played. Made by Hideo Kojima ( of Metal Gear fame), Boktai was a mix of stealth, horror an some RPG elements.
Definitely the most interesting point of Boktai was the Solar Sensor. This was a black square on the bottom of the GBA cartidge that took actual sun rays (yes, you had to play this outdoors, sorry basement dwellers) and used them to power your weapon, the Gun Del Sol. The higher the sunlight, the quicker your gun recharges.
Even though this game had an novel concept, excellent game play and a badass art/musical score, very few people bought it. Those few who did met it with high praise. I guess the rest of the world was playing Halo or something.
This creation took me too damn long to build and upload, I even tore down the original model and rebuilt it to what you see today. The remains have been sitting on my dresser all month. Maybe I'll clean them up ... nah.
The minifigs. From right to left: A coffin, which actually can open and shut due to some crafty hinge work; Django with his weapon (that's the Brickforge Mega Gun as the frame) and finally Master Otenko.
A screencap of Bloodrust Mansion from the game. Pretty spooky, huh.
I love this creation. The piledrivers are gorgeous. Anyway, the solar gun looks a bit awkward. I recently made a new version of the Gun Del Sol. Maybe it would be of help to your creations?
For some reason, when I saw the main picture, I thought you actually built those huge letters on the front. But then I realized they were just added as a prop to shield the brilliance of that mansion. Great job =)
So where does mastur ch33f come in? oh right... never mind. HAHAHA! GREAT work here. I would have like to have seen some more close up shots of the rest of the house, but hey, that's just me trying to pilfur ideas. Really nice work here. Keep em coming! ~ Chris.
Wow! This is just so many different levels of awesome! Everything from the architecture of the mansion to the technical design of the pile-driver device to the detail of the whole thing looks great! (And I've never even heard of that game until now.)
