In a Monster's Graveyard.
The School of Hard Knocks are having a MOCoff.
About this creation
The School of Hard Knocks gang have been a bit inactive as lately, so to spark our collective inspirations we have decided to have a MOCoff!

Task: build a statue for the top of a tomb in a monster's graveyard. The team at virtuaLUG will be judging these creations, and the winner will get an extra special part to play in a future project from the gang.


This is my interpretation... its loosely based off a vulture, but with no real attempt at mimicking something true. I just wanted a birdlike beast that would loom over you as you walked beneath it.















































Now, over to my fellow virtuaLUG members to judge. Thanks guys. Good luck and fun building to the rest of the SOHK gang.

Really cool, I like the little bit of pink, it pops against the grey. Nice gravestone!

Quoting Stuart Delahay Mate, it's a lovely sculpt and I really like it, but it lost all scariness when I realised from a certain angle it looked a bit...http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Sam_the_Eagle which is not to take anything away from it as I now find it quite friendly! I would have this gravestone! Well done mate, i'll post my vote in the group.
Haha! You're so right! I knew he looked familiar somehow but couldn't place it...

Very expressive! I like your colors'choice, it makes the monster even more "accurate". Very well done.

To me the statue almost looks more like the flying monkeys from the wizard of oz (somethig about the head seemed to say "Ape"). :)

Nice head design!

Menacing. Why do I keep expecting it to either fly off and attack or slide back to reveal an ugly horde of monsters (Heath, Hans, Bones, et all) to come thundering out to attack us all?

Wicked. Love the use of the mudguard elements to give it a slightly more sinister appearance.

The skull on the back was a nice touch and I love the work you did with the wings. Good luck! ~ Chris.

Quoting Mike Johnson Is there any possible way to become a full member of the Hard Knocks Gang or is my question simply something to laugh hysterically at?
You certainly appear to have the qualities of a HK member and I don't know what may happen in the future, but for the minute the gang is staying with just the five of us. We love attention however, so if you're not doing anything make us a moc ;) Let us see just what you're capable of rat boy.

Quoting Hans Dendauw NPD Win or lose, I have a feeling that we may end up finding a way to integrate everyone's builds!~H
Yes, I've been thinking the same thing.

Quoting El Barto ! It would look nice in that graveyard you built for the Superhero contest, too. Great entry, Leda!
... scratches head... huh?

Quoting Parrington Levens Cool. Great collection of tan? or is it grey? you got going there... And well sculptured!
Its dark grey, except for the dark tan brick bricks on the plinth... the images are a bit yellow sure, but I didn't think that bad... perhaps adjust the colour levels on your computer screen?

A good little Lego sculpture. I really like the way that it is perched and the parts usage to create the feathered legs & feet.

It certainly is a beast, and it definitely looms! It really conveys the large mass of something carved from stone, no easy task for sure. It would look nice in that graveyard you built for the Superhero contest, too. Great entry, Leda!

This is really nice. The bulkiness makes it seem carved from stone, and the vulture head is quite creepy. Well done.

Very nice, I immediately recognized it as bird-like.

I love that you used that skull on the back! I believe that should be the official symbol of the gang, since I've already used it in two of the HK bars (I'm even integrating it into that other HK project I'm developing). I like what you did here and I can tell you were really trying for something different. Win or lose, I have a feeling that we may end up finding a way to integrate everyone's builds!~H

Here chicky, chicky. Here chicky, chicky. Ah, what a cute widdle birdie looming over me! With a tombstone like this I could sleep soundly for an eternity. I already asked Hans but I'll ask you too my dear lady. Is there any possible way to become a full member of the Hard Knocks Gang or is my question simply something to laugh hysterically at?

Great job! Those wings are magnificent, and well, everything else is magnificent as usual also! Good luck with the moc-off!
