This big-vig depicts the most classic sword fight of all time. I know it is a bit out of proportion, but boy was it fun to make. The rope consists of an old Lego power cord. The best part are the stairs in my mind. Inigo's sword is a Brickarms rapier modified. Enjoy!
About this creation
The castle fortress ruins set the perfect scene for the fight.
"I hate to kill you!"
"Why are you smiling?"
"Because I know something you do not know."
The outside of the MOC.
A bat is hiding in a crevice.
The steps are my favorite part. Here they are without the siding.
I used those awesome new 2X2 jumper tiles.
A dead solder's remains reside unknown under the mound of rubble.
"My name is Inigo Montoya..."

P.S. A great rendition of the battle of wits scene can be found here .

I love this this is great . People always laugh at me when I say this is the best sword fight in any movie . Prince valiant no robinhood no king author no princess bride they look at me like I'm from mars. Great job
Someday I plan on getting around to doing this scene in a hopefully massive scale, maybe for next year's brickworld. One of my all time favorite movies. Great to meet you at brickworld, and hope to see you there for the whole time next year!

Wow Max! What a nice job. The curvature on the steps is really a great innovation. This is a great representation of this classic duel. Where did you get the hair and face for Inigo?
The face was the Sheik's from the ostrich Prince of Persia set. The hair not custom. It is a lego brand hair. Great to see you on MOC pages!
Your absolute best Max. Pure genius. The landscape rocks (pun intended,) but the figs are what really stand out to me. Montoya looks EXACTLY like in the film, and the effort you put into replicating the detailed hilt of the "foil that his father made" is beautiful. The angled wall on the outside of the bignette that is jagged and ribbed really replicates the movie set perfectly. Very well done, and the bonus pictures were a real plus. (nice pictures too by the way.)
