Daenerys Targaryen
About this creation
Brickworld 2017!! VLUG collab, Game of Thrones. Everybody's favorite Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Stormborn. With a baby dragon.




She's about 3.5 feet tall, Hobbit size, more or less.





At Brickworld, overlooking her future kingdom of Westeros. "Hey Chris, you're in the shot!" Seemed like he was always standing over there...






I also built Dorne.







And a micro Oldtown with the Maester's Tower.







My son and I built The Twins on site with Chris' bricks.







The whole collab! Check out my post on Bricknerd.






Lots of kids, 37 to be exact, thought she was Elsa (whoever that is?). Sorry, Elsa doesn't carry a whip...






Set up on Saturday morning with a frantic assembly of trees for Winterfell. Me, Chris Phipson, and my son, Alex. We had to move fast because, as everybody knows, Winter is Coming... So say we all! Oops, wrong series...





4th Wall
Thanks to the whole VLUG gang on another awesome collab! And to Chris, this year's HMFIC for getting us knuckleheads organized to pull this thing off-Awesome! All the help from my son is greatly appreciated, not just with his creative input, but all the hard work at Brickworld. From rebuilding Dorne, getting Mark Kelso's Pyke reassembled, throwing The Twins together, and to climbing on the table placing trees, he was a big help! And to my wife for putting up with all of this insanity (although next year she may actually be building! *gasp*). Congrats to the Eurobricks crew for winning the best collab award, again! (grrr) Their abandoned amusement park build was most impressive! I'd put a link, but I couldn't find one. Leave one in a comment, please.

Quoting Sir Emperor Flexaduck Very impressive! I don't watch GoT (too young LOL), but that's an awesome figure! I have seen the Game of Thrones Bad Lipreading, "Medieval Land Funtime World". so funny!

Quoting Ben Cossy Was awesome to see this in person, the Elsa sign was hilarious, a brilliant addition. Some of the crazy comments the public say, the idea to actually put that on a sign was genius :P
Thanks, Ben! The sign was all Phipson.

Quoting Daniel Ringuette Wow! What a terrific build! Easily recognizable (to us fans of GoT anyway...I guess not to fans of Frozen :) The shaping is excellent and the use of sloped pieces adds to the realism! The whole collaboration is mindblowing and an extraordinary feat of Lego engineering! Brilliant work!
Thanks for checking it out!

Quoting Bricks Noir The sheer magnitude of this figure is pretty mind-blowing. Also impressive is the accuracy in representing the facial features and hair, which makes her instantly recognizable. I like that it is possible to distinguish details like the tendons in her neck and her collarbone - things which could easily have been "glossed over." That being said, in a new spirit of honest criticism, inspired by Aaron Van Cleave's article on Keith Goldman's Manifesto blog (https://keithlug.com/2017/06/28/dr-badmoc-or-how-i-learned-to-stop-wondering-and-build-poorly/), I have to point a few things that bother me a little. First the "stripes" on the arms a little weird. I understand that they are an artifact of this style of blocky building, but it sure would have been nice to try to round those out some with some sloped parts. The other kind of weird thing is the lower section of her dress, which seems to have an unnatural rectangular cross-section. Rounding off the "corners" of her skirt in an effort to make it conform a little more to the shape of her body would probably have looked a little better. Still, though, I don't think I've seen a better figure at this scale outside of a Lego store or theme park. Awesome job.
Thanks for the thoughtful comment, my friend! Yes, all true. I attribute my successes and flaws would be due to my dental education. In our gross anatomy dissection we focused heavily the head and neck, but not so much on the lower extremities. I was quite proud of those clavicles, so thanks for noticing! But that lowest third of her dress, I totally agree about it being too square in cross section. I tried to bring out the sides with the steps you see, but it still didn't create the correct effect. That being said, the dress was structurally quite sound, and supported her full weight even without the feet. And that weight was significant. I feared an accidental hip check to the table could topple her over, but not with the way she ended up. So that was kind of a compromise. It might have been nice to try some other ways to do the arms. But after the face, the arms were probably the most difficult part. Maybe if I built them like the Tornado, with stacked stud-sideways sections, I could have made a more rounded look. Same with the br3asts. But her outfit wasn't just a dress, it was a bit more structured. Again, structure vs form. If I didn't have to ship these things halfway across the country, i might build differently. Ironically, old Deus had a similar critique of Olympus being too square and all. I also factor in that the build is for a show, and not necessarily for online display, like my BSG stuff. What's it going to look like from three feet away, from across the hall? Not an excuse, but something I consider. Anyway, long comment deserves a long answer, right? Thanks again!

Quoting Ryan Link Dang, dude! Beautiful work, she is gorgeous. Some great shaping techniques in there too, with what I can only imagine is a time-intensive but ultimately satisfying scale. I love the project too, great theme for a collaboration, and everything looks great.
Thanks, Ryan! Never did anything like this, so I thought I'd give it a try. People were pretty psyched to see GoT at the convention, even if their kids had no interest. Many times I'd see parents wander back to our display.

Quoting Doug Hughes Such an excellent build! It was a great idea for her to overlook the rest of the collab, and she was very well done!
Thanks, Doug! It was also easier than building a whole other continent.

Quoting Marc "Edge" R.unde Just amazing, great collab! I have to admit, all my knowledge about Game Of Thrones originates from Wikipedia. But I think you all did a very nice job! And yeah, visiting BW and meeting you guys in person is one point on my to-do-list for the future, too... ~Doc
You, Clayton, Nick, and Parrington need to get your arses over here! The town is great, the hotel is top-notch at a incredible rate, you don't need a car to get around. Father's Day 2018!!

Quoting Philippe Moisan Amazing. Using slopes at this scale is much more difficult than using bricks only, but the result is so much more realistic. Congrats.
Thanks! Yeah, I thought the curves needed to be softened a bit. I used slopes, cheese slopes, and some curved slopes on her backside.

Quoting Tom Simon Wow! That's quite the project. How many parts did you buy for this?
Lots of 2x2 and 2x4 blue bricks. And blue cheese slopes. After Olympus, I filled a 5 gallon pail with 2x2 bricks. I recon I'll have three after she's all sorted. It just occurred to me, did your kid (shark boy) ever end up with braces?

Quoting Mark Kelso Great to see a few more shots, Bart! She turned out beautifully. And thank you once again for tackling the reconstruction of Pyke. I always hate not being able to be there in person, but it's a lot of fun nevertheless, to see the work come together.
Thanks Mark! It was our pleasure re-assembling your most excellent creation. Although I must admit, fun tearing it apart!

Quoting Nick Barrett Beautiful builds, glad to see you pull out something special for BW. Will have to hop over the water for that one day.
Like I said to Clayton, it's the ultimate experience. Even if you don't display, get the all access/backstage pass. The hotel is really posh, so if there's a significant other to tag along, they'll be happy, too. Thanks, Nick!

Quoting M<0><0>DSWIM ! Wow, man, this is really impressive...and very unlike most of your mocs. Great work all around and easily recognizable (not sure who this Elsa character is. Maybe she's in the new season? LOL).
I wanted to try a sculpture/bust kinda thing, never did that before. Lots of trial and error. Figured life size would be a bit much, and she still ended up being the tallest thing on the table. Didn't want people looking up her nostrils. Thanks, Strummer! And I'm working on the Series Finale, too, if you're wondering what happens to you and Hitomi ; )

Quoting Werewolff . Impressive build and a phenomenal piece of artwork! The face and hair in particular are brilliantly detailed! Nicely done, and amazing work to all others involved!
Thanks, Dude! The face is where I started, and I figured if I could do that, I'd continue with the rest.
