Attack of the Obsidian Sand Serpent
Built for Nannan Z's great cause...
About this creation
Creations for Charity 2010


I wanted to center the build around one of the Series 3 figs and figured Squidsy would be the funnest.


The head has actually been sitting around for about 8 months now, somehow avoiding having a body made for it or being dismantled.


The entire idea for the back started with the wrenches and I went from there. I really like how they came out.




These two shots show the illusion of eyes, however, I imagine this as a blind beast.




This is what the purchaser will have shipped to them.












Fourth Dimension Commentary: It was impossible to pass up the opportunity to give to the less fortunate and what better way then the gift of LEGO. I built the serpent in a few hours, spending nearly twice as much time on the base; I scrapped three attempts before coming up with what you see. Hopefully this will sell and bring in some last minute money for this great charity!~H

First this is cool to build for Creation for charity - And... it's a stunning work ! However it seems to me that the most dangerous weapon of the dragon his is ... tail, if you see what I mean ;-)

Have every intention of checking out all your stuff but this critter caught my eye first. Watch out squiddie! He's behind you! Aw, man, now i'll never know what happened to Squiddie. Wait! The Keith has told us all that we control the action! Whew. That was a close one. Squiddie almost got away. You might be one of the first folk i've ever seen find a decent use for those wrenches. Kudos.

Big thank you goes out to Patrick Leung of Alberta,Canada for his purchase of this creation. Thanks to him, Nannan has $61 more to spend on the kiddies! :^) ~H

I wonder who bought it.... Most people would like to receive at least a BIT of credit for donating such a substantial amount. Oh well. Here's to them!

Awesome! I asked Nannan to drop the price some more in hopes that it would. Makes me smile to think of those future AFOLs receiving their gifts!~H

Hans, you may as well just skip the program and donate these things straight to me. Trust me - it's a worthy cause ;-)

Very nice build and what a great cause. I miss Fredis. I used to go there all the time before I moved to the east coast. Now it's just Walmart and Lego.com. In fact, I think that I went to Fredis more often than anywhere else and that was when I lived in Meridian, ID for 9yrs. I think I'd only been to Walmart 5 or 6 times back then. Man time flies.

That sand serpent isn't attacking, these two are meeting for a blind date, get it, blind date (snicker)! Never mind, I'm simply off my rocker again. Anyway your MOC is beautiful in a most simply elegant fashion. Now for scene No.2 have these two sharing a plate of spaghetti a la Lady and the Tramp fashion for that warm and mushy feeling!

Very cool. It reminds me of Ephraim's Garden. I really like the wrenches on the back. They give it a real unique and spiny look.

Quoting Grant W. This is amazing! Can you check out my newest creation if you have time? Where is that being sold?
Follow the Creations for Charity link at the top of the page. It was just submitted last evening, so I'm not sure when it will actually be available for purchase. Thanks for looking!~H

Nice Hans! From the first shot it was obvious the serpent was the black snake, but when I came to visit it I wondered if it could be that ugly excuse for a head... Great Build keep it up :) ~Thoy

Yes, but I think they are only available at Fred Meyer right now, which I believe are only out here in the west coast. I got a complete set last week and picked up a few extras yesterday.~H

Quoting Stuart Delahay Firstly, good cause so well done for that. I love the build mate, the serpent is great. Are those wrenches just clutching a stud for grip? Wouldn't have occured to me to attach them in that manner, very clever. I love the contrast of tan and black, not sure why but it makes me think of a bonsai in a laquered box.
Yep, like I said, it started with the wrenches and once I realized they attached to a stud I was off and running. It's a surprisingly sturdy grip, although still a bit delicate. As for the 'box', that is exactly what I was going for. Thanks, mate, and cheers!~H

Quoting Leda Kat =^..^= This is gorgeous! I love the serpent, very clever use of parts and he has got a great expression especially with his tongue! Somehow it reminds me of that scene in Beetlejuice.
Nice, I love that movie, possibly Micheal Keaton's best role.~H

Quoting Dominick Sinclair Wow. That is an excellent build, and an excellent cause! I love Squidsy! Why will the bag be shipped to purchaser though?
Because it is holding a brand new, never been touched Squidtron. I think it adds to the joy of the purchase.~H
