The Castle of the Sleeping Dragon - updated!

Postby Gumby » Thu Feb 03, 2005 10:24 pm

This thing's amazing:

This castle's built by Robin Sather (the Red Dragon's probably by a master model builder from TLG). I came across this while looking at his company's website, Brickville.ca. It's a sneak peek at their exhibit which was mentioned in another thread, here.

Unfortunately I don't have additional pictures at this time, but I will visit their exhibit and take a ton of pictures. Then I'll bump this thread back up!

I was feeling pretty good about my current castle project. Then I see this... :cry: :cry: :cry:

Not me...it simply inspires me to build more! :D

That's a pretty impressive castle...the way the base conforms to the round table is cool, though the HP roofs distract a bit.

That's really cool, I like the way the castle is built on right on to the landscape.
my only complant is that I think it would be better if the top was gray.
A great MOC over all! :D

Awesome! I actually think he puts the HP roof pieces to a very good use.

I really like the landscaping and the pillared porch on this side of the building on the hill. Very good blend of colors!

This castle is absolutely fantastic!! I don't think I've seen anything better in the past few years! The sheer style of this MOC should put most of you (and me of course) to shame! This is the kind of MOC that doesn't deserve any constructive criticism. This MOC demands our respect and admiration!

This is LEGO at its best!!

Later.

What can I say other than that this is an awesome castle? I love how it lacks perfect symmetry, and how it moulds itself to the terrain. It's also not square, another big plus.

I don't know... I think they look pretty good.

Yeah even though I only have this "overview" pic at the moment, there's lots to like about this castle. If I had to pick my favourite characteristic, it would be the way the castle follows the contours of the hill, creeping upwards ever so slightly. We've seen non-rectangular, asymmetric, and/or multiple levels before, but nothing built on a gradual incline. The overall height is really impressive too.

I am in awe...

Yeah, well, not many of us have had that much space and peices, which makes a gradual slope like that a bit harder. That's fantastic though. Realisitic....

it actually makes me want to play with it, but i must resist :D
But yes, that is the best castle ive seen. I wonder if you can purchase bulk grey peices in a tub? Does anyone know where i could purchase the bricks?

And those HP roofs are well-used.

Wow, is this guy the "Master of Angled Walls" or what?! There are angled and even slanted walls all over the place.

Great work!

Nice Castle!
As Mr. D said I thinkt he angled walls were the best part besides the dragon.
