8061 Alternate: Giant Clam Trap!
About this creation

With the invasion of those pesky surface dwellers it was high-time the Atlantians fought back. Behold this diabolical, jewel-encrusted, giant clam trap! Soon those divers will be imprisoned, marinated and EATEN!

I thought there was heaps of potential for alts from this set-lots of interesting parts and the addition of rubber bands, something kinetic seemed in order, thus this idea was born. As far as alts go, the spring-loaded clam is rather ugly and a little tricky to build, not the best for little kiddie hands. Oh well, maybe it could count as a "Spring Fling" entry, who knows...?



Ah, an unsuspecting diver approaches...


"Oh wow! A huge ruby! I'm rich!!"


Just a gentle tug in this baby here and...WHAM!!


Squid dude licks his lips.

speaking of which, IS THIS NOT THE COOLEST FIG EVA?!?!1!?11


Thanks for watching guys!

Finally, the underdogs can get revenge on those pesky humans! (Lego always makes the humans invading- Mars Mission, Atlantis, etc.)

It's almost as scary as some other clam trap I know. Nice build.

Awesome trap, I WANT THAT FIG! Seriously, that just owns the shark one, bearded squid man. In my opinion the colours are a bit messy, but for an alternate this is cool, especially because it actually functions. :P

You know, when I read "giant clam trap" I was thinking something TOTALLY different, but this is cool too... I guess. HAHAHA Duder! You have GOT to enter this in the spring fling contest! It's AWESOME! Please toss it in the group! ~ Chris.

Ooooh, this creation gives me the chills, and my hands are getting sweaty typing this. You might say I'm feeling 'clammy'.

It is! This is a good idea, if I had those shell pieces in green, I'ld definitly try a horrorshop version! Hint, hint..."Feed me!"
