PJ's Creation--Dragon Attack

This is a small LEGO display that I made about a Wyvern (legless dragon) that's attacking a guard outpost somewhere outside of the castle. It has a small house, and the dragon has already set much of the foliage on fire.

I just used three knights from the many LEGO Kingdoms sets that we have as the guards scrambling to defend the outpost from the evil wyvern

The house has a chimney inserted into the side thanks to a 2x3 inveted slope.

The top of the guardhouse opens by a hinge brick in the back. The cottage has aa fireplace inside, and brown tiles keep the roof from catching on some studs.

It took tons of experimenting to build the dragon, especially the wings. You can pose the head and open and close the wings. I think it's probably a milestone for me as a LEGO fan and builder.

PJ's Creation--Sea Monster Fight

 I was really wanting to make a kind of sea monster or kraken for maybe a viking or pirate theme, and this was the outcome. The dude trying to slay it is probably a really brave adventurer, and the sea monster is really pale and blind from lurking in the deepest depths of the ocean.
The boat is just a slight modification of Gollum's little raft from the Riddles for the Ring LEGO set

The water is made from two blue plates that overlap on each other.

The half-surfaced monster is made with a sequence of clip/bar hinges that allow for vertical poseability. Headlight bricks are what hold the spikes protruding out from the side, giving the monster a sleek but deadly look of speed in the water.

Ethan's Creation: Flying Car V.2.

This is the second flying car that I made, and it's alot smaller than my other flying Jeep and only fits one minifigure. The doors are smaller but they still open.

PJ's Creation--Restoring The Lost Kingdom

This is definitely a MOC that tells a story, as I like to do in many LEGO creations. The main reasons for me wanting to make a scene about these people coming back to restore their ruined town is because of a lack of bricks and because I thought it would make an interesting, story-telling display. Ethan didn't have a creation ready for this week so I published this

The people of this town have returned to reclaim their city, and this is the aqueduct they built...

The town was left in ruins after an army of goblins invaded and took the town and all of the hidden treasure for their own, but the people have driven them out and have come back to rebuild their lost Kingdom. 

The town may be starting new, but that doesn't mean that making supplies is a necessity to be delayed. The forges are at work almost immediately.
Above all things, the main gatehouse survived for the most part, and it was a n icon of the town before it was attacked.

These two guards were sent to dig up the treasure that the people had hidden during the battle to keep safe from the goblins. But apparently, not everyone is willing to carry their own weight...


Feel free to discuss in the comments, thanks

Paris's Creation--Steampunk Flying Pirate Ship

 This Is a little flying pirate ship I made. I originally wanted to make a regular boat, but I didn't have any sails and finding the ladders that are in the back inspired me to make this Stardust-like flying pirate ship with a hard-boiled crew and captain.
The solar sails in the back are what help to power the vessel.

Cargo ships beware! This crew will stop at nothing to find and steal supplies and money.

I used a wagon wheel for the steering wheel, and the prow of the ship was made by a parts of Shelob's abdomen in the LEGO Lord of the Rings Shelob Attacks set.
