Let me tell you, getting that lever piece to stay in his hand was %@!&*? hard. But I can tell it was definately worth it (I guess it really wasn't that hard, it just took awhile to get it right).
Another fun thing about this was designing that fireplace. Those 1x1 bricks and cheese slopes are pretty much only staying together like that 'cause of gravity. I had to set the whole vig on it's side, set up the fireplace in the way I wanted it, and slowly set it back upright. And it works! :)
Oh and in case your wondering your free to use that pipe technique but you've been fair warned that it can take awhile to stick perfectly in the minifig hand.
Okay, (Oh no, now I have to come up with a good Sherlock Holmes quote.... uh.... eeh... uh... Oh, 'Light bulb'.) Ahem, "Eliminate all other factors, and the one which remains must be the truth." Haha, that's a good one. (By the way that's a real Sherlock quote.)
