Spinjitsu Training Temple . The training area from the Ninjago movie where Kai starts his spinjitsu training, In Real Brick! "Is that one sugar, or two?" . Anyone remember the video of Kai starting his spinjitsu training from the Ninjago movie? (If not, you can see it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VTGZvDHY0U). Needless to say, I have watched this little clip more than once over the past weeks, as this MOC is heavily inspired by it :P
So I present, the Spinjitsu Training Temple.
The following two pictures have the spinning center thing removed to get a clearer picture.
And with the spinning center back in place:
The inside of the temple, viewed from the back:
This MOC has lots of play features. All the training equipment spins and moves (except for the pillars in front of the gate), and there are 3 sliding doors (double in the front and one on each side). I have uploaded a video showing all the moving bits here:
The MOC is also modular in the way that each of the 4 baseplate-sections can easily be detached from the rest.
More pictures can be seen in my flickr stream.
I made this for the D2C contest in the Action Themes forum on Eurobricks. I've spent quite a lot of time and bricks on it, but it's been a lot of fun. It's my largest MOC to date, and I don't really even have any space for it in my appartment. Unfortunetaly, I'll probably have to destroy it soon, both because af space restrictions, and because it has depleted my source of a lot of different colors (such as white bricks, tan plates and reddish brown tiles...). But I'm really happy with how it turned out, so I'll try to let it live as long as I can!
