Smaug the Magnificent . In honor of my induction into the fellowship of the brick, I decided to make a LoTR themed creation: a tribute to one of the most iconic dragons of all time. It's Smaug the Magnificent! . Bricks used: 3558 Acknowledgments: Dave Benson's Imoor the Dragon inspired me to make a full-size posable dragon. AP's Lord of the Dragon Riders gave me good ideas for the scale and color that I wanted for my dragon and I used some of their techniques in the snout and head. Photo acknowledgments: I used the following sources for backgrounds for the photoshopped pics. Lonely Mountain Laketown Other Laketown Treasure Pile Look out Bilbo! After stealing the cup, the burglar flees Smaug's lair as the wyrm searches for the thief. Laketown is toast! And now for some un-photoshopped pics. Although the dragon is quite posable, it is time consuming to pose him in LDD. As a result I just did three poses for the pictures, (standing with wings folded, flying, and roaring) but the potential is there for many more. The technique that I am most excited about is the one used in the neck and the tail to achieve their flexibility. They are both composed of several overlapping segments, each with its own universal joint and flexible flaps around the exterior in a conical shape. All of these movable parts makes it a real pain to pose in LDD, but would be easy to use in real life. All in all, the only things that I would change if I could figure out a better way to do it is the leg design (particularly the forelegs) but I'm very new to bionical. So, if any of you bionical fans have some good suggestions, I'd be glad to hear them. Also, if I were to build this out of real bricks I would forego the bricks in the wings and just use some red translucent fabric for the webbing.
