Here is my entry in the Set Alternate category for the MOCathalon Team Triangulate This! round 2
About this creation
Cruising the depths of the Devil's Triangle, the guardian keeps watch over King Neptune's realm.
This was built using the Gateway of the Squid set 8061. And yes it will appear in future Devil's Triangle builds.
Even the stand was build using pieces from the set. Nothing artificial here folks.
Besides Yuri's categories, the set alternate is actually a LOT more tougher than I would have thought possible.
Here is the parts shot. As you can see this was an unopened set before I started. If the judges need an actual tear down shot, please let me know and I will post it immediately! I would prefer not to if it can be helped as I've become attached to the little guy. ;)
Well there you go guys. Hope you all like it. And Yuri, using the minifig heads and helmets for eyes IS my original idea. Feel better?
Thanks all, I'm glad you like it. It was one of those rare builds where everything just fit into place However it took quite a few days of idea tinkering before it came to that point. It also captured the attention of my step sons who can't stop talking about it and can't wait to "play" with it (AKA tear it to pieces!) LOL
