Lythe and listin, gentilmen! This project revolves around the popular ballads of Robin Hood, and presents a trysting (meeting) tree where Robin and his Merry Men can gather.
About this creation


This MOC features a large three story tree-fort that splits in half for increased playability (see the second picture), yet also locks into place for better stability. Each level has several features:

1. A storage and concealment area on the first level, with several Robin Hood-like features—peek holes, bags of loot, weapons, food and drink, and a treasure chest
2. A guard post fortified with sharpened logs on the second level
3. A top level that serves as a lookout point

The Merry Men can move about the tree by ladders and vines. The ladders can be lowered to allow access to the second level or raised to prevent intruders. In the locked raised position, the ladders, along with the vines, allow Merry Men to scale to the third level. Finally, the set includes three archery targets, four archery wands, a pack horse carrying gems and coins, and six minifigures.

The minifigures include (from left to right in the eighth picture): Robin Hood, George a Greene, Bettris, Much the Miller's Son, and Sir Guy of Gisbourne.

If you feel so inclined to support it, this MOC is also a project on Lego Ideas.

You can also see these pictures in better quality through Flickr.

This is the first of four planned projects revolving around Robin Hood. The other projects are:

Little John's Lair
Marian's Prisoner Rescue
Will Scarlet's Outpost

No problem! Thanks for giving me the group, and liking my project :)
Quoting Commander Cold Listen, I appreciate you wanting to join Robin Hood and The Merry Men, but the fact is that it's dead. I created it when I thought I was going to start building in the Forestmen theme myself. This never came to fruition, and I quickly moved on to space. As such, I am giving you full control over the group. I'll leave the group and from there you can do anything you want with it. Thank you for your time. (P.S. This creation is very good and I love the playability.)

Thanks! I refined it for quite some time, and had fun incorporating Robin Hood-like pieces that weren't necessarily available when the Forestmen sets were around.
Quoting The Missing Link This is cool. I can see you put some thought into the hideout. Nice!
