    My latest LEGO project

    I've been working on this the past couple of months...

    And it still need some details, but I figured I could release som teaser-shots:





    I think I'll be able to finish the project this month,
    if the LEGO-gods (and my wallet) lets me

    And yes, it's build in minifig scale
    (or close to, anyway)

    Totally psyched about this post! I love Lego He-man stuff!

    Looks great so far! I can see the Sorceress' throne....I think....

    When building without a guide, a lot of ideas has to be tested, and it takes time...

    And thanks for the positive feedback on the pictures

    I'm currently waiting for some plates and I need to do some more details, so at the moment the there are only teasers on the menu:






    I prefer not to post the WIP-pictures yet,
    but when I'm all done and I've posted the pictures of the finished Grayskull, I'll get to the WIPs

    The castle is now ready for the public...












    And some of the castle accessory I (mostly) finished in time:









    Keep in mind, this is a mix of the different castle-styles
    and that I only used real LEGO bricks - no custom made bricks

    Man, I don't even want to THINK about how much time that must have taken. Awesome man!

    Now all you need are some little Lego He-Man and Skeletor to battle!

    I guess approx 4 months (including the 'trialbuilding' with the bricks I had in hand at the time)
    www.bricklink.com is your friend if you want to build something, or just want spare parts ;c)

    They are in the works, but minifigs aren't that cheap and it takes a week from order to have it in hand... (+ I have to costumize a bit)

    Thanks :c)
    I'm not an architect, but I do have some knowledge about LEGO-bricks and how to use them ;c)

    But I did mix different versions of Castle Grayskull, Filmation cartoon, 200x cartoon, vintage playset, 200x playset and this:


    A peace from a MOTU board-game with the most awesome art :cD

    No way - if I wanted it green I would have used cheaper bricks
    And if I painted it, I can't put it in a MOC competition (The MOC-rules states, it's not allowed to use modified bricks in a MOC competition - MOC=My Own Ceration)



    I promised more pictures, but I don't think you expected this:
