Just like last time, I had no clou what to build for our category. But I knew that I wanted to build something with ‘The Raven’ in it, because I liked the poem right after reading. Then I had to decide how to make the scene. I don’t know why, but I came up with a minilandscale project. So with this idea in my head, I started building. I managed to come up with several clever solutions for some hard problems, like having to little or the wrong bricks for the minilandheads ect. Little by little it came together, and this is the result!

Can you find all of the amazing details? It looks kind a plain, but it really isn't!

I wanted to make it the scene somewhat bigger, but I didn't had enough bricks for that. Also I have been volunteering at LEGOWORLD so I ran out of time for building at the end. Still I’m very pleased of how (all of the attributes in) the chamber turned out. Only the quality of the photo’s isn’t like usual, hope the judges can look through that. However, I hope you all will enjoy the result, I did my best for this category.

Not so many photo's (looks only good from one point of view):

You got to look good to see all the details (like the little snow by the window!) or just the Raven en the bust of Pallas (miniland style)

I tried to capture a old Englisch/American style. But since I'm no Englisch neither American civilian, I sucked...

The fireplace also gave light, but you can't really see that on the photo...


Please comment if you have anything to say, good or bad. I want to hear all of your thoughts about this build (or any other build) so I can improve my building or photo making skills. Also check my flickr


When there is nothing left to say, these are my last words: May the best builder win.
Which, in this case was my opponent George G. good luck in the rest of the commpetition George G!

A lot to love here and a great unique scale, but unfortunately I had to give my vote to George. Excellent game!

Mr. Jan, I really love the challenges you took with the scale, particularly the picture frame. In the end, your opponent earned my vote. Thanks for sharing your take on the category. ~Dave

A nice idea and also some nice details, but the whole MOC lacks a bit of atmosphere. Essential parts, that are mentioned in the poem - like the curtains or the book - would have helped a lot. Sorry, but my vote goes to your opponent.

supercalagragalisticexpialadocious! Very good I think the bust/shadowbox is a nice touch! very nice man in the tuxedo and the raven is excellent the fire place and plant vase.(pronounced like vas, So you know it's more fancy sounding...)

Solid build, but imo you could have made a lot more of it. Some more depth to the stage would have helped tremendously, as it is the whole thing looks a touch compressed into one plane. Perhaps more emotion in the figure would have helped too - the poem is about a man's descent into madness, and yr figure looks supremely calm instead! Maybe showing the man being pursued around the room by the raven - drawing more connection between them - would have served your purposes better and introduced more of a gothic feel. Anyway, just my thoughts. However, despite my criticisms, there is a lot to appreciate in your build - the chair is great and the portrait on the wall is a lovely touch. Nice work and best of luck!

Gutsy call going with the miniland scale! Quality build, but my vote goes to your opponent on this one. Good luck with the other judges!

Nicely done, but a little plain next to George's entry... I guess I'm biased though as he's a fellow Brit. Good luck anyway!

I think the build are very hard to compare because they are so different. But I agree the build of George G looks more 'busy'.
