The Desolation of Smaug: The Barrel Escape
A MOC I built based off the Barrel Scene in the The Desolation of Smaug (TDOS) Movie. Includes Bilbo, Thorin, Dwalin, Fili, Kili, Ori and Legolas, Tauriel, Mirkwood elves, and a bunch of Gundabad Orcs.
About this creation

Even though I was disappointed with how much the second movie strayed from the books (no taunting the spiders and drawing them away with his songs and a huge made up fight with Smaug that went nowhere) I decided to build this scene since the bridge and trying to create water would be interesting. I think the Elf Army set is actually supposed to try to be part of this if you look at it (the set could actually be part of the bridge fortification). This was actually hard to build since there are no great images online (which is what I usually use when I build a MOC). All I could find was a grainy four-minute video clip of the scene to use for reference.

Fili is pulling the lever to open the gate while Tauriel fights through the orcs that have attacked them.

Bilbo is really liking the book version of this part of the story better…when there was no fight with orcs and elves! Sorry, I was a defender of making three movies after seeing the first one. Now I am disappointed in the adaptation of the book. I think it could have been a great two movie set AND THEY COULD HAVE JUST STAYED WITH THE SOURCE MATERIAL!! Really, no big fight with the spiders where Bilbo actually gains his courage and sings those cool songs to drive the spiders crazy and saves the dwarves.

Dwalin fighting with a Gunderbad Orc!

Thorin can’t get out of here soon enough!

Quoting --R.K. Blast-- Nice job! I agree, the pictures should be bigger but the build itself is nicely done. --Blast--
What settings are you supposed to use? I switched them all to web pages after compressing them and thought that would work. The Bilbo and Dwalin pics are big but the rest are still small.

Really awesome work, from what I can see, but might I suggest using bigger pictures next time so I can see better? [Ess]

Awesome build Joe! I like how you did the water so you could actually submerge the barrels , really adds to the scene. Great looking battle!
