Great looking Castle and awesome use of the technic bricks.

So thats where all those dark gray tiles went to, when they started to disappear from BrickLink. :lol:

Yes, that's an incredible number of tiles! What a textured look! I'm extremely impressed. Maybe I'll try something like it on a smaller scale.

Hey guys!

Oh well, time to faint now.

I think it is in old grey since the tiles look like old grey to me and I don't even think there are that many light bley slopes in existance yet! :lol:

Very impressive, best castle I have seen! I would love to know who the builder is and see if he/she has anything else we haven't noticed him/her build.

That was me with the High-Res pics, cause I knew people would want some up close pics.

It was made by Steve DeCraemer, and is called POV3. It won best in show.

That is just crazy (but crazy in a good way). :shock:

I cannot even begin to imagine how many pins and tiles are in that monstrosity, not to mention the labour required!

The cliffs are also very novel.

Thanks for the info, Kevin, and thanks for the pics. Hmm...I wonder what POV3 stands for...if anything...Point Of View? :?

A quick search reveals Steve DeCraemer does post on LUGNET:

No luck with finding MOC announcement of POV3, though.

It has 3 points of view.

One is a really nice town city layout, the other is the castle thing, and the third is this crazy Jesus-Robot being made by other robots in this crazy techno-world.

The first pic of the castle that I saw was this.
It's blurry, but that made it even more exciting. In that pic, it doesn't look like Lego at all, which makes it more impressive when in the not blurry pictures it still doesn't look like Lego.

What? That's the craziest thing I've ever read on this forum. Can we see that view?

The new mortar technique is pretty cool......it gives the castle a very realistic look. And it looks awesome!

I honestly don't like the cliff it sits on that much.
It looks more like melted plastic or a stone lava flow than it does a cliff!
But it's still very impressive that the builder was able to built it!

I can honestly say that I won't be using that new mortar technique (at least not in big mocs) because it...
A. Looks way too complicated
B. Involves way too many tiles

Though, it looks soo darn coool! I wish I had the money to to buy the necessary pieces to build a large castle using that technique.

I resized some of the pics so you can take in the scope of this big castle.....
