Ephram's Garden
Oh nooes! It's a plague worm! Built for Nannan's Black Fantasy Contest and the ApocaLEGO Contest on Flickr.
About this creation
Seeking refuge from the biomechanical horrors overrunning the urban centers, Dr. Ephram Dart and his two children fled into the trackless wilds of the great Eastern Plateau. Trying to rebuild their shattered lives, they established a small homestead and tried to begin again. Far from the blazing eyes of the vile machine creatures, amongst the pale flowers native to the plateau, hope seemed renewed.

The respite was short lived however, as foul poisons, carried on the winds from the fallen cities of the west, soon laid waste to the plateau. Plant and animal alike succumbed to a terrible rotting sickness that consumed everything in its path including Ephram’s eldest child. Now, with nothing left but his daughter, Zoe, and a withered garden as their final source of sustenance, Ephram struggles to defend this, their last refuge. Hope fails them one final time as the black hand again reaches forth, cloaked in the guise of a titanic Plague Worm.

Pictured here are the final seconds in the life of the esteemed Dr. Ephram Dart. The expression on his face seems to indicate a stunned resignation to his fate rather than the look of sheer terror one might expect. Zoe, on the other hand, doesn’t appear to be taking things as well…


EDIT- Many people have asked how to make the internal structure of the worm. It's actually very simple, just some technic axles, some #3 technic angled axle connectors, and a 4x4 cone with axle hole near the head to hold all the tentacles etc.























































































Barrel for catching rain water, electric fence powered by a salvaged solar panel, and a cute little scarecrow...which didn't seem to scare the worm.

























At least Ephram's son has a grave. I don't think Ephram and his daughter will be so fortunate.















"You know I'm not sure you should keep eating the vegetables from this garden. Your skin tone seems a little...off."

That is sick! Of course, now I'll stay out of our garden, but whatever. A grand creation, and the worm is super excellent!

I agree with Hans and Phipson, the whole thing is awesome, but the scythe is one of the little things that I really like - Hector

Funny that Phipson was the ONE person to point out the detail I wanted to point out: the scythe. Now, if only he were that perceptive as a cop...~H

Woah! That is awesome! I like the thing-in-the-bucket-with-the-axe - blade-on-the-musket. Is it a gardening tool? Whatever, this is really cool, and ti would take me all day to point out all the great stuff. Wonderful!

Simply brilliant. The worm construction is great and I love all the tentacles and what not coming from the mouth. The landscape looks great too, it really does look like a dying landscape on the verge of apocalypse. Excellent work. Peace - Patrick

Dude, you should make lego movies. You're Awesome, with capital A, at making Lego dioramas and figures, and at writing too. I really like this garden and the Black Fantasy "biomechanical" worm horror. Although nothing beats your "Lucy." That stuff is pure gold, I loved it. I would definitely vote for this or Lucy.

A job well done. The actual creature is of an original design, not at all like Nannan's arachnoid creatures. Also, the diorama adds interest and provides an entertaining bcakstory. You definately deserve the win. One question, I have noticed that many builders have a large amount of photos on their page. When I upload creations, there is an option to upload a maximum of only seven images. Is there a price for these extra pictures, a membership to MOC pages? Please respond if you can. Keep building Brian!

Makes me think of 'Tremors'. I never thought I would see a LEGO 'Graboid'. And I never thought it would be as cool as this. Masterful work.

My, that's a rather depressing story. Also a depressingly good MOC (by which I mean this is another contest in which I probably don't stand a chance). But still awesome. I was going to point out how proud I was of you for using classic yellow-skinned figs, but I see you've already cracked a joke about that. Bah!

The first thought that came to my mind when I saw this?: since when does Lego make giant rubber cauldrons? :P The sense of wonder hasn't left me, even though I now realize that they're rubber wheels turned inside-out. Amazing creation. Keep 'em coming.

Nice and dark...yooouuuu sicko! Great use of parts, and I like the shape you've gone with on the base - breaking away from a simple square or rectangle. My personal favorite of the entries thus far - Very cool!

Certainly has a Mr. Z. flavour to it, and a nicely written back-story to boot. Nice job and best of luck. Lee.

This is great stuff! While everyone else is praising the big stuff (as they should, it's phenomenal) I'm gonna point out a small detail that might slip past a few people and needs to be seen. The scythe. made with a rifle, ax blade, and minifig hand, brilliant! Good luck with the contest. ~ Chris.

Creepiest entry yet! I like how you can see part of it coming out of the ground. The tires make it seem really scaly and serpant like. My favorite fantasy monster yet!
