Hey Tom, I found out the other week that you were taking a break from the much loved pages. I'm not surprised, MOCathlon has a way of burning out even the most elite builders as yourself. Also found out that I no longer made it to your fav list - which explains how you missed my latest ;) But I get it, sometimes a darkage in Lego means a lightage in Life. Anyway, wishing you the best and hope you'll come back someday. ~Thoy
When I saw this on my EXPLORE Page I thought wow! The Coloseum in Rome! BUT it wasn't and I wasn't disappointed! A strange story in a stranger land! Great details... what caused me to have to stop and write a comment was YOUR USE OF 2 GRAY LEGO BRICK SEPARATORS as if they too were LEGO Bricks! Talk about imagination and creativity - W O W! And the way you did the curved fence and flowing liquid! 5 Lego Heads 4 u!

But the text seemed truncated. Like you had a more developed narrative in mind, but gave up on it. Attack!
You have a keen sense. Actually, a small part of this MOC has to do with the subject. Most of the build is unrelated, and was developed later, for personal reasons. It is included here for my convenience. I left that part of the narrative as purely visual. (I'm finally taking you up on your advice. I'm planning an ambitious attack now.)
Visually intriguing. The toothy maw of the bone crusher and the banana gods...powerful stuff. I really liked Phipsons cape sticking straight up too! But the text seemed truncated. Like you had a more developed narrative in mind, but gave up on it. Terrifying. Attack!
A-ma-zing! Boy oh boy, this is huge. First of all, I need such a bone crusher for my entertainment here at home (better than telly). Second, great colour choice. Third, the part where Bones stands reminds me of old Trek episodes (cool). Fourth, no need to praise you for the architecture, it's obviously fantastic. And Fifth, I LOVE Chris' 70s band collar.
Just Whoa! The detailing on the Temple is nothing short of gorgeous, the blood pool - creepy as Diablo! The grinder, reminds me of an extruder from work - except we dont feed ours with underfed skeletal remains... Kiddies dont get on the good cops bad side :P ~Thoy
This is one of those rare models I'd like to see IRL. It just has too much to really appreciate in pics. The satanic looking mouse statues are the best and the grinder looking like it's "pooping".
Ah the wonder of LEGO! Will it never cease to amaze?
stunning!! the temple is incredible; the stained glasss windows are great and I like the use of the brick removers, even though I would have preferred a more subtle integration of them (why don't they include those in sets anymore? knives and teeth tend to take quite a toll on my little plastic bricks...). anyways the bone crusher is awesome! it reminds me of a mechanical kraken. great work!
The architecture and that Bone crusher's design had me falling off my chair in wonder! I especially like what you did with the top of the building: brick separators included in a LEGO creation!? Ingenious!
