About this creation
Welp. A very delayed entry, but gotten in just on time.

I really have no excuse for the lateness of this upload. :P I was simply procrastinating on building this to the very last minute. So yeah. This is my entry to round one of the 2014-14 MELO.

The Category:
Select ONE of the songs below and interpret it (or part of it) into ONE build. The build can have different components, but it should clearly be one congruent entry. Your interpretation can be from the Lord of the Rings/Hobbit or it can be something more artistic/abstract. All we ask is that you avoid building from other official LEGO themes. Your own ideas are fine, but we donít want to see any Harry Potter, Star Wars, etc. themed creations in a Middle Earth contest. Music has the power to inspire, so as you listen, pay close attention to the mental images that come to mind.

The song I chose:
Misty Mountains Cold.

I chose a very generic route, for the line: "To find our long forgotten gold."

So, thus you have Smaug's Lair!

So mainstream, I know. Sorry. XD

Anwyay, enjoy this creation!


A full shot.

Smaug's Eye, personally my favorite bit of this build.

Smaug's Claw, prepared to rip poor Bilbo to shreds.

Gold! Note the artistic license I took here, adding silver in for decoration. That, or I didn't have as much gold as I had hoped. I'll let you pick.

This little bridge thingy.

And another full shot. It looks like Bilbo has caught sight of Smaug. Good luck Bilbo!

Old Smaugy is waaaatching you...

I'd like to thank A M, who graciously allowed me to borrow a few parts from him, and also A.J.S, who had a lot of constructive criticism and input throughout the building process of this build.

Quoting Ketros M.o.S. Oh man is there something you can't build?! This looks great! :-)
Haha, thanks Ketros. There are lots of things I can't build, including Deaskuth right now. :P It isn't going well.

Quoting A M Wow! Great work! This came out awesome. One of your best, in my opinion. I love the layout and each individual element is quite well-built. The arches at the top really give a sense of scale to the build and complete it well, and the eye and claw are great touches. Good luck!
Thank you very much! I'm glad you like it!
