Ethan's Creation--Flying Jeep

I think this creation is really advanced because it uses a railing for minifigures as a bumper. I decided to  make it a flying car because I was having a hard time finding the right wheels to use. So I decided just to make no wheel guards and make it a solar-powered flying Jeep!

PJ's creation--The Hobbit: Trollshaw Forest

 So I wanted to start this off with my entry to the LEGO Hobbit building contest. The challenge was to interpret the Trollshaw Forest scene, when Bilbo and the Dwarves get into quite the sticky situation with a trio of trolls, and build it. I didn't have any trolls from the Lord of the Rings or Castle sets, so I tried my hand at making my own. I tried to make it look like how I imagined it from reading the book, and it's a really classic, widely known scene from Tolkien's beloved book.

Will Bilbo get caught by the trolls as he tries to free the dwarves? Thankfully, Gandalf tricks the monsters into arguing all night and they turn into solid stone, letting the dwarves escape!

The troll's arms are connected to a car axle, giving it posability. 

I enjoy creating MOCs that tell a story, such as this one, which is a favorite of mine.

Feel Free to discuss this in the comments!

Welcome To Brick Creations Weekly!

This is just a little blog me and my little brother made, being the LEGO-loving boys we are, used to display our favorite MOCs (my own creations) and keep them and their building tips and information accumulated in this simple showcase. We will upload pictures of our creations, and talk about what techniques and bricks we used to make each MOC. Some will be from me, some from Ethan, and we hope you will enjoy our creations and maybe give us some tips. Always feel free to discuss our-or your own- MOCs in the comments section, and happy building!
