very cool swordsman!
I grew up in the philippines and the few lego sets I would get in the mail from the states at Christmas or birthdays formed a limited but powerful collection from which to satisfy my creativity. That is why I love seeing you push a set to wonderful new heights.
Thanks everyone :). The head is my favourite bit too and the minis are just a bit of fun with the remaining parts. Lego builder - I did try that, but thought the eyes looked more interesting and mystical with the levers in. Thanks for feedback I always respect your opinion on my stuff.
Very cool! The pheonix look kind of weird with the lever for eyes...maybe you should take the stick part of the lever off and leave the rest of it on...I can't really tell how it'll look like that, but I think it's worth a try. I'm building an MOC right now, but I'm not going to tell anyone here on MOCpages what it is...I'll probably post it sometime in July or maybe the month after that. But I'll have to buy more pieces from Bricklink. :(
