For school I had to do a project on a novel of my choice and OF COURSE I somehow had to incorperate Lego. My novel was Brisingr which is the third book in the Eragon series. I made a newspaper based on the events in Brisingr and used Lego for the newspaper's photographs. Now most of these are just fragil sets made ONLY for the purpose of takeing the picture. The only real MOC is Saphira. That pic above is her face and there are more pics of her on a different MOC. First, let's see the images I used in the newspaper...
About this creation
This is the Varden killing all of the Empire's troops. Looks like the Varden has the upper hand but...
These men feel no pain! They get up and catch the Varden by surprise. Men who feel no pain are extremely hard to kill.
This is a scene at the begining of the book where Eragon, Saphira, and Roran go to rescue Katrina but are confronted by the Ra'zac.
Here is Eragon and Murtagh dueling.
Here is a scene from Roran's first mission for the Varden. By the way in the background there are two BRUPs. One is a real BURP and the other is a a BURP made out of individual bricks. I had a lot of fun replicateing the brown BRUP but I still am not completely happy with the background for this pic.
This is Eragon and Orrik talking in Farthen Dur. Anyone who has read the book should take note of the flameless lantern in the background.
Here is Orrik being crowned king of the dwarves and reciving his gifts of treasure. He looks pretty happy to be getting all this stuff. I would too. By the way I don't have any REAL Lego castle brand dwarves so that's why he dosn't have a longer beard.
Here is Eragon's mentor dragon rider on his gold Dragon. The only gold peices I have are from the Lego version of the Ark of the Covenant so this picture was extremely hard to take.
Here is a picture from Roran's second Mission for the Varden. Can you spot Caran?
This is the cover of the book Domina adr Wyrda(dominance of Fate). I included a short review of it in the newspaper. I was looking for a map peice to use as a cover when I came across the hyroglifics(that IS spelled wrong) version of R2-D2 and C3-P0 being worshiped by an achient Egyptian. Now many people think that The Eragon series is similar to Star Wars(which is only half true)so that is why this image it the cover of the book. This isn't really anything special because this picture was done at the very last minute.
Also in the newspaper was a review of the Eragon movie. Here is an Urgal protesting the Eragon movie.
Here is the Dwarf Kvistor. I wrote an obituary artical about him.
Here is Eragon riding on Saphira.
I had a lot of fun doing this but it took a lot of work. If you want to see more of Saphira I have more pictures of her on a different MOC. For some reason MOCPages wouldn't let me put more pictures on here? Does anyone know why? I am new so is there something I am missing.
