Radagast the Brown
After seeing the Hobbit, I was most pleased with the addition of Radagast the Brown to the story. Here, I have built his rabbit sled which, in my opinion, is the most efficient mode of transportation that I have ever seen. A lot more fun than driving....
About this creation

The rabbits. This design was developed specifically for this MOC.


The sled. The movie design is very irregular, and while mine is not an exact copy, I tried to capture its disorderly nature.


In the film there are more like ten rabbits, but I could only fit six in the build. Forgive me!


Birds-eye-view of the forest scene. The angled dark green baseplates took a lot of work and ratios to perfect.


Here stand Gandalf and Radagast. Gandalf is displayed in a new cloak technique have been developing. Go short capes!

Ironically, as I was typing this write-up, my computer shuffled Howard Shore's 'Radagast the Brown' into play (a song which I am most fond of).

Soli Deo Gloria!

[EDIT 1/11/14/]: To see an unauthorized use of my rabbit design, check out Brotherhood Workshop's latest film made for The Lego Company. I'm not sure whether to be appalled at their lack of credit to my genius, or proud of the recognition. Regardless, enjoy the film!

Quoting Tureaglin Naugellon Brotherhood Workshop even put it on CUUSOO:http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/54386 Here is a quote from the page: "Radagast's Rabbit sled was designed by Julianna and Brian Ulrich of Brotherhood Workshop for Lego's exclusive "Middle-earth Motor's" video, and the model turned out so well, we want everyone to have a chance to build and play with it."
Well that's... sad. But I noticed that the back legs of the rabbits are different from Max's.

Love the rabbits and tree! I just saw the new Radagast stop motion. Kinda sad to see the rabbits there and yet have no mention of you. Maybe, as Grant Davis said, he'll make a deal with you... or something. Anyway, great build!

I think you should ask them if they got the rabbit design from you. It is pretty clear to me that he did, and I recognized it immediately after I saw them. I am sure that he will make some deal with you about the project, I personally think its a good idea.

Awesome! I really like the rabbit design and the vig you built around the sled is really good too. You actually inspired me to build my own Radagast's Sled MOC! I would like to use a modified version of your Rabbit design if you don't mind. I will give you credit though!

Great!I was overcome with joy as I heard of the addition, or extended role, of Radagast The Brown in The Hobbit.I saw the movie recently and I loved that too!I jumped for joy because the wizard was played Sylvester Mccoy (the seventh Doctor), as well.Those are Restanbul Rabbits indeed!A wonderful MOC to represent the quirky hermit!

Congratulations on being Across MOCpages again Max (two in a row)! And AMEN about bunny sled transportation! For one, you're right, driving isn't very fun. And for two, the world will probably run out of gasoline eventually. When that happens we should all advert to bunny sleds! There is still hope. ;)

Quoting Michael Kringe Awesome! One of the first movie-based hobbit MOCs I've seen. Nice idea to use Bofur's hat for Radagast!
I thought of using Bofer's headgear when the set first came out. Matthew Murphy posted the idea first in his MELO entry though.

It would cut down on pollution that's for sure.

"These are Rhosgobel rabbits... I'd like to see them try." Fantastic recreation of one of my favorite parts of the film. You beat me to the punch with this one; I'll admit I've been planning a Radagast MOC since viewing the movie. But man, this is great. You really captured the head-over-heels, helter-skelter feel from the sled scenes. Excellent rabbit and sled design! I'm impressed.

Amazing build! Although I wasn't a fan of this in the movie, you captured it perfectly and EVERYTHING in this build is well designed. The rabbits are perfect (as is the sled) and the sloped baseplate is ingenious and will probably be copied over and over so congratulations on such an innovation! The foliage is quite nice and the rubber band tree is probably the best technique I've seen for large trees; it really adds the illusion of stripping bark on an old snag. I love the owl, too. Great job!

hmmmmm.... where have I see this before? On your desk? But seriously, this is a great build. The time you spent on the angels really payed off, it looks as if you took a screen shot right out of the movie! Well, maybe not, but still I love the figs and the greens. Now I think the rabbits are from a whole different dimension!! I don't know how you came up with using all the random pieces to make a rabbit! If I did that it would look like a awkward conglomeration of gray lego bricks, NOT a rabbit. Anyway , back to the point, I think it is an awesome build.

Excellent work Max (as usual). The sled looks very accurate, from what I remember of it. And your bunny technique is a winner, particularly those four dark blay front-bunny-leg clips on the back two bunnies. ;) The foliage all looks stupendous as well! That tree design is superb. Excellent job on the Radagast mini-fig; the Bofur hat is perfect. The torso/cape design for Gandalf works beautifully too. Brilliant stuff, what! Oh, and did I mention that the unique shape of that base-plate adds a whole new level of awesomeness to this? Well done!

Wow! That is one cool build. I love your sled, it looks just like the one in the movie. The rabbits and the foliage are excellently done, but my favorite part was definitely your Radagast figure.

Sled design looks awesome, great rabbits and Radagast fig too! All in all, an excellent little scene!
