Well this is my third entry to the Middle Earth Lego Olympics. My category was Warg riders and although the general idea was from the Two Towers I decided to go with a scene from the Hobbit. Based off the scene in the movie and the chapter in the book Out of the frying pan and into the fire. The wargs are the main part of this build and I am quite proud of the design. They are flexible and have lots of playability. There is a lot of detail that you might miss at first glance so take your time and have a good look. Thanks for viewing!
About this creation

Bracket: Barad Dur

Category: Warg Riders

A Birds Eye view hehe... Get it? Uhhh anyway this is my Great Eagle and I quite like him especially the new wing design I discovered.







On to the main attraction of the build, the Wargs. I spent a lot of time on these guys and I am quite proud of how they turned out. I spent quite a while getting them to minifigure scale and looking accurate. Building a Minifigure scale, ridable warg is no easy thing let me tell you. They are very flexible with many positions and lots of playability.







Hey, there are cute wargs! I mean look he has a bow and his toungue is hanging out... Uhhh never mind sorry Ian I think the Wargs look too much like their masters.

Well thats it everyone thanks for viewing. I had a lot of fun building this and I really hope you enjoyed it. Just want to say good luck to my oponnent Martin. It looks like some tough competition; Im on the edge of my seat. Again thanks Everyone!

Please rate and comment.

Quoting David . Ryan, don't sweat it. Did you think maybe he didn't see your technique? Justin is a great guy and I'm sure he would have given credit if he took the design from you. *EDIT* I have compared the eagle and the dragon, and your designs are similar, but they are definitely NOT the same. Look again, please.
Hey thanks David! :)

Quoting Ryan "Ronin" Dragonslayer Maybe I'm mistaken but I rarely am, toot toot. lol The eagle design as a whole is splendid, though. Justin, you captured the scene from the movie perfectly with the leaning trees, too.
Thanks for your comment Ryan. To be honest I never saw your creation before. I went back and looked at it now and there is some key differences between mine and yours. Sorry but I won't be giveing you credit for the design. Thanks again!

I'd like credit for the wing design, please. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/350293 I'm glad you liked my technique but when you use someone's design you should give them credit. Great moc, though.

I'll begin by saying that this is a top-notch build Justin, so hold your head high! You've included a palette of fantastic details, particularly with that eagle! But unfortunately the category is "Warg Riders" and on that score I think your opponent's Warg and Rider were slightly better. As such, my vote goes to Martin. Good luck with your other judges though!

Sorry you didn't make it man. :( Your Wargs were great and the build added to them a lot. I think you should've won, but the judges have their own criteria. Again, sorry you didn't make it.

You were creative with your topic, as was your opponent, this was good, but I would say the wargs were the worst part of the build. I really like the rest of it, but because the focus is on the wargs your opponent has my vote.

Wow Justin! This has got to be my favorite of your MELO entries! (saving the best for last?) This is superb! Not only do you have rockwork, foliage, and awesome trees, you also have the wargs and the eagle! Really really well done man!

Justin that is AWESOME! One could not do this scene better! So many details, the trees and these somehow cute wargs ;) but my favourite part is the eagle...man, he's just perfect. Think this will be a pretty exciting 3rd round. Let's see how it'll turn out! Again, best of luck to you :D
