A seemingly-abandoned insane asylum located in the most dangerous section Olympia , Brighton Asylum is home to the twisted and fiendishly creative individual known as “Doctor Disease”. With a contingent of monsters, Doctor Disease launches destructive forays into Olympia, spreading fear amongst the city’s citizens. The electrified fences and the graves of deceased adventures do an excellent job of keeping The Authorities from poking around Brighton’s premises and shutting down the Doctor’s devious schemes. Tonight, however, Brighton Asylum is not under assault by the incompetent Authorities, but instead, Mr. Parker Pyne and his loyal team. But Doctor Disease isn’t the only terror lurking in Brighton Asylum that Parker Pyne must face: a terrifying figure in black lurks in the ceiling above, controlling a weapon of sinister power. Who is this fellow? What connection does he have to Doctor Disease, and why is he in Brighton Asylum? These are questions that Mr. Parker Pyne hopes to answer before the night is through…
Willie Sparks recklessly attacks a zombified-monster, blowing it’s head to green bits with an accurate steam-shotgun blast.
The interior of Brighton Asylum.
Fiendish creatures rush through the Asylum’s control room to engage the unwelcome intruders.
Weathered and crumbling, the halls of Brighton are filled with the ghosts of the past…and the terror of its new occupants. Unintelligible scribbles line the walls, while the corpses of the criminally insane litter the broken floor. Nearby, holding pen lies open, while an incubator for artificial organs nurtures the future hearts of Doctor Disease’s latest horrific inventions.
An uncooperative beast is locked into an electrified torture rack, while the lifeless eyes of an ex-inmate stare into nothingness…
Doctor Disease’s operating room is a place of horror and pain: a monster’s heart is removed by the insane Doctor, while pools of blood, body parts, and medical equipment lay scattered about. Bot-Bot, Doctor Disease’s half-robot assistant, shrills in panic as something of incredible power breaks down the wall to the operating room.
Writing left by a despairing soul (the Jugger , perhaps?) wishing ill-will on Doctor Disease.
Above all the chaos, a sinisterly-robed figure controls Mr. Tesla’s electro-machine, which sends out a signal to anything with an electro-receiver implanted in it...like violence-obsessed monsters, perhaps?
Mack’s steam-powered Drill Hound is well-suited to smashing through hard obstacles and/or stubborn creatures.
The fiendishly cobbled-together creatures of Brighton Asylum. They are former inmates, Asylum employees, and hapless citizens of Olympia, stripped of their humanity and forced to walk the night to sow destruction in Olympia. They are well-armed with sharp objects and armored helmets of various makes.
Each Brighton Asylum creature is not fully organic: Doctor Disease has incorporated machinery into his monsters, giving them enhanced power. An electro-receiver in each allows Doctor Disease to coordinate their movements…a clever fail-safe not of his design…
The Doctor himself, with Bot-Bot. Doctor Disease is forced to wear a breathing device due to an unknown injury he received in the Great War. Do not be fooled by his sympathetic, scarred eyes and cowering demeanor: Doctor Disease’s mind is full of nasty thoughts and ideas too vile to mention.
The faces of justice, ready and willing to fight!
The face of Oblivion is terrifying to behold…
I’ve always wanted to try my hand at a LEGO insane asylum, so when the opportunity presented itself in my little Olympia storyline, I said, “Why not?” A couple of Bricklink orders and a few months later, I completed the project; the main difficulty was finding the time to work on it, as my quest for a pay increase has turned me into a workaholic (money ain’t everything…but it certainly helps my LEGO addiction ;) Overall, I’m very pleased with the finished model, although I must admit my landscaping and architecture skills aren’t progressing fast enough for my liking. But hey: you can't always get what you want! :)
Wow, what a great story line you have set up here! I just read through the first 5 tonight by seeing this first and I can't wait for the next one that'll feature this awesome build! Im definitely adding you to favorites to keep up with your series! :)
