I won't absolutely 100% guarantee this is the last Walls post you'll ever see out of me -- hell, I promised I'd quit building Shannonia a couple times and we know how that went -- but I'm thinking we'll keep this limited to a trilogy. I need to concentrate on working some of these nice wall designs into real dioramas instead of these carpet-sample bundles.
As chronicled in Murder on Skunk Street, MOCpages' other resident Shannon challenged me to build a graffiti wall and then laid down the gauntlet by building one himself. Was I up to the task? Forge on, faithful viewer, and find out for yourself...
Welcome to the Jungle I know, I know, it's not much of a wall -- I was trying a few different things this time, not all of them successful. Trust me, there are better ones to follow. Such as...
MAH SUPER COOL WARHTOG AND CUSTOM MASTR CHEIF!!! OMG!!! If you can decode the hidden message in this wall, please don't translate it in a review. I would prefer that people waste valuable minutes of their lives deciphering it for themselves. Thank you for your cooperation.
Indiana Jones and the Wall of Skulls That's right, a proper yellow Indy -- the way nature intended.
Episode III - Revenge of the Shan I never did come up with any brick-built graffiti I was happy with, but I thought this printed tile mosaic was a pretty cool effect -- like one of those city walls overloaded with posters and leaflets and stuff. So I'll call this one the answer to my Down Under doppelganger. (No, that is not his sig-fig walking through.)
"I fart in your general direction!" If you don't get the reference, you must go cut down the mightiest tree in the forest -- with a herring -- before being allowed to pass on to the next wall.
70's Night This one also arose out of my attempts at graffiti, trying to maneuver small plates into a workable painted-looking design.
Five plates height (without studs, so four plates and a tile) equals two studs width. Use this knowledge wisely, kids. SNOT on! Or build yet another terrible warthog, what do I care.
Shady Deal part 3 What's in the briefcase? Ah, much like the one in Pulp Fiction, it shall remain a mystery.
"Oh yeah, we happy."
"I'm not playing anymore unless you let me wear the red suit."
"Would you quit whining for once? God!"
"It's not fair! You always get the red suit!"
"Mom said to let me have it sometimes."
"No way. You'll just pee your pants in it again."
"I WILL NOT!"
Flower Power Yeah, I'm in front of a yellow floral wall this time, so what? You got a problem with that? At least I don't carry a man-purse like that fancyboy Indy.
hey i really like all of your wall designs i really like the brick one and the lasst one of part 2 with the book the 70s one is also really cool but i had a question would you mind if i used the brick technique, that is if i ever get enough of the brick colored tiles, but great job!
very funny xD when i saw the red vs. purple wall i laughed so hard. and lol with the "fart" wall lol holy grail O.O haha any way about the morse wall HAHAHA :P so true.
anyways you have inspired me to make walls ")
(ill even give you full credit for the idea, but i you dont want me using your wall idea then let me know :)) ~Josh
and the best part is the halo MOCers can't read it!!! also, peach minifigs are simply a more accurate representation of a character that does not exist purely in one's imagination, such as an actor or CGI figure.
Interesting way of showing how egocentric you are, and yet a phenomenal artist.... the right combination I could possibly assume?... but assumptions are out of this planet for the moment. Any way you are a very talented lego-ego artist
All in all, a great set of walls, from the Pink Floydish one through the 'Welcome to the Jungle' one, the Warthog mockery, the Indy skull wall, the multi-postered wall and etc etc down to the 'Flower Power' one... Just great, a 5/5 indeed.
I agree with the secret message and have an intense loathing for that theme... Love the brick wall, I might make a bricklink purchase and incorporate that design into a building. Great walls!
I like it

This is a great creation love the indy thing and especialy the yellow indy
please please check out my page it is Tristan Amaya.
im the new guy so dont get mad at my creations peace out thanks.
OMG!!!!!!WARTHOG AMAZING!!!!!!WAYYYYYY BETTER THAN SCORPS AND BRIAN K'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED INTRUCTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!AND YOUR CHIEF AH AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(NOT!)cool walls PLEASE tell me the hidden code in the AMAZING HOG AND CHIEF(NOT!!)thing.I don't know morse code.
Morse code in a wall! Awesome. I got down to the third line- then actually saw the AWESOME CUSTOM WARTHOG AND MASTR CHEIF and burst out laughing. Nice work with the 70's wall, too, but I think the plastered over wall with all the random tiles is best-the mushrooms are my favorite. I have to get one of those tiles!
What? No floating rock wall? That's okay - gotcha covered. Anyway, congrats! Unlike many trilogies, your third installment didn't degrade into a mindless regurgitation of formulated cliches...it was bold! It was challenging! (too challenging for this lazy SOB when it comes to morse) It was...hey are you even listening...geese, sometimes it feels like I'm just talking to a wall.
I have to admit there a couple of these I am not fond of, but then there are others that are sheer brilliance. Of course your write-ups always tip it over the top, and are at least as good as your creations. Lee.
hehe your best walls yet. VERY funny and VERY clever. You beat me to that lousy warthog idea so I gues we're even about the grafitti thing :D Visually your graf wall is more exciting tha mine I think. And btw, you can tell a lot about a fellow's character by the way he eats jelly beans (RR)
