Crater of Doom
My latest project (which further evidences my inability to imagine good MOC titles), The Crater of Doom. Despite the presence of LOTR minifigs, this is meant to be a build outside that universe. Had a hard time getting decent photos of this MOC because I found out this morning that I could not lift it by myself so I couldn't get it to my makeshift photo studio. Once I can get it moved I'll post some better pics, especially of the interior of the structure and some of the caves running through the mountains. Anyways, I'm definitely glad to get it done. Hope y'all enjoy, and of course any comments or criticisms are welcome! Update: The lava lake was looking a little empty, so I added this skeletal dragon type beast being summoned out of the fiery depths.

I am serious, how do you afford this amount of pieces? I want to so bad make things like this, but as i am working a part time job, and am still in school, its not realistic at the moment. Tips? Tricks? as for the build itself, my favorite part is either the fact that there are hardly any stids showing on the clifface, which is amazing, or the wooden stairs with the rope handrails. amazing altogether.

I'm running out of things to say about all your MOCs...but wow. A masterpiece, one with lava and quite a frightening monster! You have a talent for making bricks look sinister! Well done!

Glad that MOC on the explore page today led me to know you, this is one of the best I've seen recently. My respects!

Why should you do this? I don't like how creepy it is.

Simply love the scaffolding. Everything else is amazing also, and he great border finishes it all off.

That's a lot of orange studs...The mountain rock looks superb, the model itself though is simply incredible.

Just incredible! I love the rockwork in this build, and on that scale it is not easy to acheive

Terrific job! The rockwork is excellent for such a large area, but the lava, the dragon, and the rickety scaffolding really makes this one shine!

Thanks, no, down where I live we don't have that kind of thing, I wish they did though, it sounds awesome, anyway I'll leave you be now, Great Work look forward to seeing more from you :) -Ranger-

Wow. Your mastery of creating natural rock forms in lego is clear. However, I would have mixed up the parts for the LOTR figures. That is, if you were not planning on using them in the future. Anyways, when the only thing wrong with it is the figures, its evident that the moc is fabulously designed, just as yours is.

That is awesome! It could easily be something from Mordor though. You have a lot of Trans-Orange studs...

In the words of Hiccup: This is amaaazing! Nice work here!! The rickety walkways and orc built crossbows... All the little details add so much. :D

Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head Wow, great stuff. I think the lava really sets it off, but you're right, the dragon bones improve it. A rickety rope-and-wood bridge leading to a rock island with a forbidden artifact would have been cool too. Good rock technique as well.
Thanks Kermunklin! That would have been an awesome feature to incorporate. Next time!

Quoting Lego Jim .... Criticize? LOL. What's to criticize? This is a really sweet build. So much detail,it's awesome. Just curious. How many orange dots did you order? Again, amazing just amazing.
Thanks! But there are a few things I wish I'd done differently (like build some lights into the lava). I do like that famous artist's mantra, however, that a work of art is never completed, only abandoned! Also, there are just shy of 10,000 of the orange 1x1 round plates in the build. Need some?!? haha!

Quoting Ranger Elegost Good Luck at the show man, hope it goes well :) Oh and by the way I was wondering what LUG means?
Thanks Ranger! LUG stands for Lego User Group. It's just an "official" Lego club (solely for AFOLs, I believe). Surely you have one in your area?

Thanks everyone, I'm glad you like it! It's going to a show my LUG is participating in this weekend, and then it's getting tore down! I have to admit however that I'll be happy to never see another neon-orange 1x1 round plate again! I swear I've been finding these darn things everywhere - buried in the carpet, under the couch, even the dog's food bowl!
Quoting Ranger Elegost Thats real top-notch work right there. The detailing of the rockwork, the wooden platforms and the dark fortress combine together to create one great build. Although I've got to say that the Orange(Lava) is a bit too much, I know you've added the Beast to divert some of the attention, but if it was my creation, I would put some more rock Islands etc. But anyway, Brilliant Build, truly amazing -Ranger-
Thanks a lot Ranger! After looking through your wonderful builds, that means a lot! My first thought was to add some rocks within the lava, but though it may be hard to believe, I don't think I have a single dark bley slope left!

I've never seen so many 1x1 trans clear orange studs in one sitting before! Superb job on those rocks! Love the dragon! I also really like the wooden structures built into the rock!

You were right to add the dragon it creates a dynamic feel to the scene. Great rock work too.
