This is a cool book. Has ead it. The front cover is really cool, and it pulls you in. Take a look, also the reason I started this topic, is to ask if someone might endevor to build the giant black tower.

Wow, talk about overkill on the size of the fortress. In the words of Shrek, maybe he [whoever built the black fortress] was trying to compesate for something. :twisted:

I have not read the book, but... :shock: I would have to buy like a million of every black piece to make that black tower :shock: , so in other words: I don't think I can build that.

It looks like an over inflated Minas Morgul overlooking Minas Tirith. Yes, there definitely seems to be some LOTR influences in these creations.

Some-how, some-way the white city reminds me of Minas tirith.

In a way, but Minas Tirith has walls. This does not.

Wow! That is indeed one big black tower. I can not even image it being built (in minifig scale) to that size. But that doesn’t mean I am not willing to let someone else try it.

The image does look impressive though. I can see how the book would be tempting to read.

That's like the concept design for Vladek's Dark Fortress. So in theory, you should be able to build one of those by stacking a dozen VDF's together.
