MXSC-R1-Old: Grandpa's House
About this creation
Hey everyone! Here is my (16x16 with a 1x1 black border) entry for Mr. Xenomurphy's Superhero Contest.
Category: Old
What if a superhero becomes old? Will he still fight crimes as usual or just save kittens from trees? Build a vig (min 8 x 8, max 16 x 16) and show us that old superheroes are still useful. Or not

First of all I'd like to say a special word of thanks to my good friend Max Pointner for letting me use his lights and backdrop. I couldn't use much of my own equipment due to a 50hour power-outage directly followed by my summer vacation. I was initially hoping to wait and post at the last minute, but now I'm just fortunate to be posting at all, so thanks a million Max!

Now on to the build!

It's been a good many years since Spiderman was last scene in action. At present Peter Parker and his wife Marry-Jane are retired and living quite comfortably in a cozy little cottage. The most action they witness nowadays occurs when the grand-kids come and visit...



The cottage.



Good old Peter Parker a.k.a Spiderman!



The sandbox: Having been reconciled with Parker (at the end of the third Spiderman film), Sandman occasionally stops by to entertain the grandchildren.



He is...

...entertained. Yeah.



Grandma MJ sets a pie to cool.



Grandpa has some of the coolest toys/trophies. Junior seems to be enjoying the Green-Goblin's contribution to the collection.



The Green-Goblin's glider: Not super accurate perhaps, but regardless, I was quite pleased with the design.



A rather artistic bird's-eye shot.




And just another shot of the cottage minus the figs. I was really happy with how the build turned out.
Notice the screen door and the mail box designs! Thank you, I'm quite proud of them.
Also special thanks to one of my younger sisters for letting me borrow a couple of her pieces (including the black screen door piece).

Thanks for viewing!

&

Soli Deo Gloria!

Quoting Sebeus I Very nice, I like the mailbox, it looks like spider man's torso is fading out, of maybe it's just the camera angle, either way, it's appropriate ;)
Heh, yeah it is fading a little. Thanks for the comment!

Quoting Jorden Davis Wow! This is awesome! I am thinking about entering the contest, but with this kind of competition... Once again, THIS IS AMAZING!
Never let stuff like that get you down, you should totally enter! It's stiff competition for everyone. Many of the AFOL haven't even posted their entries yet *gulp*. You've really got nothing to loose by entering, and there's potential gain as well. I'd say GO FOR IT! Thanks very much for the comment!

Quoting Parrington Levens Clap, clap, clap, the weather boards are just very well done Ian, it's good to see someone bothered to do them that way, not surprised it was you :)
Haha, thanks Mr. Levens! I was pretty determined to use that siding technique. I almost ran out of room though, it was close. Thanks again!

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy This entry works on so many levels - excellent work, Ian. You packed a lot of beautiful details and funny, original ideas into a clean MOC of good proportions. The humor is perfect. (Now go and add the required parts to the title, before the judges realize that they are missing - I'll distract them until then, lol). Good luck.
Oh dear! I misread the rules...*gulp* ...embarrassing. I'll get on fixing that right away! Thanks for the comment!
