MELO R1: An Elf’s Journey Through Time
This is my entry for Middle-Earth Lego Olympics, Round 1! It’s my first contest entry ever! This is a build about Legolas’ journey thought time and many places!
About this creation
Contest: Middle-Earth Lego Olympics (MELO)
Opponent: Everyone!
Category: Gollum’s Riddles – (The Time Riddle)

This things all things it devours,
birds beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steal;
grinds hard stones to meal;
slays king, ruins town,
and beats high mountain down.

Answer: Time

Hello! This is my first contest! I hope I get pretty far in MELO, but I know I won’t win.
Before I talk about my entry, I want to give a huge thanks to…. Graham Gidman! When I had given up after all my ideas hadn’t worked, he gave me more. Pep talks, brainstorming and constant engorgement from him are the reasons I’m in this! Again, thanks Graham!

Also, I’ve been having trouble with my pictures! My taller picture get cropped or changed into a square shape! You will probably see it in this MOC, because I don’t have time to figure it out before the deadline. : ( Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Now to my entry.

This three vignettes that I combined into one build, because the rules said that it had to be one build! So, with much brainstorming, I came up with this idea. I tried to keep them connected by giving each Legolas a bow.




The one build taken apart into three vignettes




Legolas walking in Mirkwood




Legolas walking on The Paths Of The Dead




Legolas at the Grey Havens



Mirkwood, with no minifigs




The Paths of the Dead, with no minifigs




The Grey Havens, with no minifigs




The three Legolas minifigs




For the old Legolas. I used Thranduil becaues, his head looks like Legolas just aged, considering he’s his dad!




I think the water turned out great here! Well... Sorta, I wish I had more of the light blue studs.




That green stuff is mist, I don’t know how much you guys think it looks like mist but I think it looks okay.




Mushrooms just add so much! : P


Anyway… That’s it! That’s my entry!
Thanks for viewing my MOC! Any constructive criticism or suggestions are welcome!

-Graeme

Quoting Nathan Pownell No, we don't NEED you… I wish we could have you but… Agghh. Life's complicated. Well, I forget what I said there, but I'll say this. We would have liked you to be on our team, but when you said you'd be banned from the computer we decided we should get another builder before the deadline's over and it's too late… So then it got kinda confusing cuz Calvin left and we got you, then he came back and… Oh man… Mayhem. NO!! Of course we don't hate you!! Why would we???
Well... I kinda had left you guys at the last minute and well... got myself banned from the computer for a month... I'd hate you. :P Just kidding! I'm SOOOOO Bummed... Could I still fit into the team even with Kevin in there??? Cuz, I might be able to talk my parents into letting me get back on in LATE March... I hope I can!!!
