The Last Samurai
About this creation
This is a creation built with a friend who goes by Donut. We built this from only bricks at the LEGO store plus two Bricklink orders. You don't need a huge collection to build decently sized creations, just some planning and repetitive use of parts!

Like clouds afloat in the ocean above,
The samurai takes flight by the mercy of love.
By wings of the wind he is lifted into the air,
Transcending the world of woe and despair.

Of times of yesteryear,
One can only shed a tear,
Deep into the tragic past,
His memories will forever last.

Immersed in the celestial light of dawn,
The samurai embraces the peace heís found.
Below him, the times of ignorance bygone;
Above, the infinite void tumbles past beyond.

This does not look like the movie at all, but that's the only thing that bugs me other than the way the other pictures are organized. But ignoring that, the MOC is a pretty cool landscape/fight scene.

You included my favourite landscaping concepts in this MOC: massive amounts of vegetation, mountains and an ol'rope-bridge! Only for that, I'd give it a well-deserved 4/5, but the 'acrobatics' effect rounds it all off very nicely indeed.

Haha, I have no idea what those people who say this is all money are talking about. Money doesn't get you imagination or patience. I don't even think you spent that much. You did a very good job, I like the green ninjas and the bridges are also great. Money doesn't get you imagination

Bulk bricks ftw indeed, once you have what you need, it only takes a few hours to put things together. The longest process was definitely laying the grass.

This really captures rhe essence of chinese martial arts movies. If there was a common factor unifying them all it's the flying sword fights. Also if it can attract my partners positive interest then It's pretty sure to be good.

You'd think they would learn..... never send lots of ninja's after a single samurai. Guaranteed fail. Now a single ninja?.....hmmm

Nannan, your opening statements are exactly correct, and I think that's important for young builders to understand. Back when I was a kid I ordered 10 of the 50 pack black 2x4s and I'll never regret that decision. Buy a piece in bulk and see what you can come up with, and I think this MOC shows that very well.

Some nice natural effect, Nannan. Love the flower work and bridge on this one. Say, are those guys for hire? My wife's having trouble with her flying monkeys, and I thought maybe the flying ninja's could set 'em straight.

Alright, I haven't seen a moc that has more grass pieces then this! But simply an amazing build! I like the messed up bridges and the ninja battle scenes are great with the use of Willie's little crown piece. Great work overall! Oh, and could you check out my Venator? It's under my Republic Hardware folder.

Thanks again guys, it just wouldn't be Asian enough without the flying ninjas. The ninjas are from Donut's collection, and you can say that some people are smart enough to buy two ninjas for $5 back in the day, I wasn't one of those smart people.

Quoting Shannon Young Add about another $200 for the minifigs. Green ninjas are very rare and expensive. Kind of ruins your point about not needing a big collection, since big collection = big money investment.
Was that just a ShanYoung triple slap in Z formation?!?! Dang... ;)

For a second the protruding rocks remind me of a scene in Kung Fu Panda - when the Furious Five tried to stop Tai Lung along the hanging bridge. the patches of flowers and weeds in the grass accentuates the dull but perhaps menacing sight of the rocks! 100/100.

Epic! I like the dead trees and the patches of flowers. These pics seem less clear than many of your other MOCs. I canít see the details as well. The blood. I see it, but canít really see what part it is, or how it is attached. Your pics of Phobos and Deimos show the details more clearly. With MOCs like yours, the details are often the best part. Attack!

This is some impressive stuff. All of those plants, some brown planks, a couple rocks, and of course the ninjas make a decently sized moc. I still wonder why Lego made green assassins...but I wish they would redo the ninja line.

It's amazing... I have no words to describe this creation: I love the flowers and the grass, the rocks look like the asian mountains and the diorama is quite well! I only think that the Samurai has a little of a peasant look and samurais use, from 10th to 19th centuries, complete armours and they rarely use that type of hats in battle
