Hey all,

Nine builders (including several CC members) --Paul Vermeesch, Dan Church, Max PointnerIan Spacek, Casey McCoy, Philip Berntson, Matthew Oh, Ben Merrill and Lee Muzzy--unveiled a series of Princess Bride MOCs at BrickWorld and then also this weekend most of them were posted online.

Here's a video where the Beyond the Brick team interviews the builders.

The story starts with Casey's MOC, framing the whole thing with time for a bedtime story.
Image

The action begins, and Ben Merrill shows us the sea of the shrieking eels
Image

Dan Church shows the Dread Pirate Roberts in a duel with Inigo Montoya.
Image

Casey again, showing the confrontation with Fezzik the giant.
Image

Dan again, the battle of wits against Vizzini. Inconceivable!
Image

Max Pointner had Westley and Buttercup escape into the fire swamp.
Image

Casey has a woman in the crowd boo Buttercup.
Image

Ian Spacek then threw Wesley into the pit of despair.
Image

Paul Vermeesh has Miracle Max save the day.
Image

Lee Muzzy has fun storming the castle.
Image

Paul celebrates mawwiage.
Image

Matthew Oh gives us the duel. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.
Image

Phil and Casey collaborated on the final confrontation with Humperdink.
Image

A final look at Casey's Wesley and Buttercup.

Thanks guys. :) Glad you like our collaboration, we had a blast building them. :) Just a side note, Max Pointner's Fire Swamp was nominated for Best Vignette at BrickWorld, unfortunately it did not win, but we think it should have. :)

I posted my build here as well, although for my pictures either visit my MOCpage or Eurobricks.

Enjoy!

Thanks for posting this Bruce!

What really gets me is that, even though there's what - eight, nine collaborators? There's still a real conformity of style here - I would easily believe that it was the work of just one (extremely talented) builder. But that doesn't mean you all didn't do a great job!

And thanks, Bruce, for compiling all the different pages where the pictures would be found - now to go through and bookmark at least half of them! :roflol:
