The Beacon of Gondor
About this creation
This is my first MOC on MOCpages, and also my entry for the Return of the King in Ian Spacek's Lord of the Rings Trilogy contest. This captures the moment when Pippin has just lighted the Beacon of Gondor, calling for the aid of Rohan against the armies of Mordor in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.

Here is a closer view of the upper half of the MOC.




The lower half.




A bird's-eye view (or eagle/Nazgul/whatever you prefer).




A view from the back.




Here it is without the minifig or the building




The bottom view, to show that it is indeed 8X8.




A close-up of the hobbit minifig, Peregrin Took (a.k.a. Pippin)

Brilliant build. The cutaway view is clever and well done, and I like how it shows everything. However, the rocks are incredible. I would have never thought of that handhold idea, and it adds amazing texture. I hope to see you use it again, for it is truly magnificent. Great work!

"The beacons! The beacons have been lit! Gondor calls for aid!" -Aragorn. Great job with Pippin, especially the hair.

Wow realy neat! I had not thought of the brick formation you used for the rocks. I dont know what Pippin looks like so I think he is great. nice wall to!

Quoting Mark Murphy Your Beacon is great! but the face and hair don't fit Pippin.
Yeah, they don't exactly match, but it's almost impossible to find a minifig piece that's exactly the same as a movie character. If they came out with Lord of the Rings sets, though, it would be quite simple. For now, I just imagine that each wave of hair is a strand of curls. ;)

Quoting chris stone Dude, this is really neat! I especially like Pippin. Although in the books it wasnt Pippin that lit the beacons. But anyways its still a great MOC.
Thanks for the comment; that's interesting to know. Of course, I'm sure there are several other things that aren't exactly the same in the movies as they are in the books. I've seen the movies a few times, and now I'm making my way through several of Tolkien's books, but I haven't made it to Return of the King yet. It sounds like there will be plenty of new material waiting!

Quoting Aidan Moon (out of town until July 14) Fantastic Job. Pippin is great! The way you did the building over the beacon is very cool.
Thanks! I basically tried to take the design from the movie, and reproduce it as closely as possible.
