It looks like an ordinary sea cliff, but inside is an elaborate hideout...
About this creation
The photos are sequenced so as to take you into the hideout as you would enter. First, the drawbridges, camouflaged within the rock face, lower to allow you entrance to the barbican tower, which is the first island off the sea cliff. After a climb down a few ladders you reach the bottom floor of the barbican tower and cross a second drawbridge into the main hideout. You can put away your weapons in the armory on your left. Above the armory is the leader's quarters. Next to the armory is the tide pool, necessary for catching any sea life that gets caught in there at low tide. Above the tide pool is the living quarters for the other members. On the other half of the hideout is the kitchen/dining room on the bottom floor. On the second floor balcony is the practice room for keeping in shape with a variety of weapons. Not pictured is the bathroom (even legos need privacy). It is located up a ladder and through a door into a room below the tree stump.
The details were very rewarding for me; the bookshelves, bat cave, and working chimney to name a few.
This is one creation with a lot of story/ secrets behind it, I like that. I also think the texture you may or may not have put in on purpose in the cliff hidout make it seem more realistic, and grabbing! Overal great great job. Phenomenal job inside the cliff as well. O and the tree is very nice...
The best compliment I can give is that I really want to PLAY with this. It looks so fun and you've really captured the joy you must have felt in making this. The secret doors/drawbridges are just clever. Great work!
When I saw the front page pic, I thought it was going to be something about a tree house in a hard to reach location with some nice scenery. Which would have been great on it's own, but then... Talk about pleasantly surprised! You took an idea, rolled it around, molded it and repackaged it into this amazing piece! Just SO cool on so many levels! ~ Chris.
