Gongfujian the capitol of the Democratic People's Republic of the Gongo.
About this creation
This creation has been around for awhile but I did not upload it before for fear that Mr. Shannon Young would render me a 5 minute beatdown for such a blatant rip-off of his idea. Well I have since grown a pair and manned up. So here I present to you Gongfujian, the capitol of the Democratic Peoples Republic of the Gongo. Inspiration for this was obviously derived from Shannon Young. The name Gongfujian is courtesy of Andrew Becraft (Dunechaser) of The Brothers-Brick Blog. The best lego blog on the blog-o-tubes.
Becuase I made this quite some time ago I and have little time for typing today I will dispense with any snarky commentary and just give yall some pictures.
Anyway I hope you enjoy, be prepared for further installments.
While really minute, those double black towers really make an impression on me. I think I like them the most for the transparent pieces you used.
You have a good variety of buildings outlined, just like a city should. The "city green" area is another little detail I like.
The only thing I can really recommend from here is to expand it :)
Very cool - definitely has it's own identity, despite the skunky aroma of its influences. Not sure why, but I've suddenly developed a hankerin' for banannas. Anyway, I hope we can look forward to seeing some expansion, snarky comments and all.
Minus one smiley face for thinking you'd get off with only a five minute beatdown... And for thinking you could hide this from me. Shannonian Intelligence has been aware of the existence of Gongfujian for some time now. The question is, do we welcome you as a sister-city, or bomb you back to the Duplo age as a dangerous rival? (Seriously though, I really like that black building. Keep growing!)
