The Last March of the Ents

This is an awesome Lego build of The Last March of the Ents from LOTR. It was built by the builders group "the OneLug".

This is the tower Orthanc it stands 228 bricks high! that is over 7ft (2m+) tall. IT really looks allot like the tower in the movies.

Around the base the battle of the Ents and the orc's is taking place. Look closely and you will find Merry and Pippin.

Al-Wahat, The Oasis

This is a beautiful Persian/Arabic castle build by Lowlug member and Brickshelf user Aliencat.

The use of the different colors and all the different angles is just perfect.

This would fit very nicely in every Prins Of Persia scene.

There is a small oasis on the side of the castle, hence the name.

The Crumbling Tower

This is the perfect place for a hideout.

The crumbling tower by Flickr user Matthew Hurt is a cool ruined piece of real estate.

Matthew put his Lego collection to great use in this MOC. He used the round buildings technique to great the shape. And the crumbling top of the building is just perfect.

The bottom of the tower serves as a hideout for who ever is in need of such a place. There is even a fire to heat things up.

The Empire begins here....

The epic battle between Mace Windu and, at this point still chancellor, Palpatine brought to us in Lego.

Built by Okayaraman from Flickr.

This is a very accurate build of Palpatine's office suite. The red colors, the stairs, the desk and the conic ornaments, it is all very much like the set used in the movie's.

Check out much more on Okayaraman's Flickr page!

Black Bertha

Discovering the wild west was made possible by some great trains, like Black Bertha.

Whenever trains and the western theme collide it can mean only one thing, train robbery. Or in this case they are trying to free a captured indian.

Brickshelf user MCDB built Black Bertha. It is a simple yet very western design. The wagons are very cool. And MCDB put his SNOT skills to good work.

Harry Potter Horcrux Cave

This is an awesome buid by Lego.Skrytsson.

It was posted Flickr.

This is the famous scene from the 6th Harry Potter book/film where Harry and Dumbledore attempt to find a Horcrux in a cave.

Lego.Skrytsson made great use of transparent red elements. And the Mad Scientist hair gives a real sense of movement.

The mines of Magnoth

Orcs attacking a mine sounds really familiar. These dwarves are not defending the mines of Moria but the mines of Magnoth the Dragonslayer.

A truly great build by  Brickshelf user Gearcs.

It features several dwarves and orcs fighting for control of the mines. There are four big pillars in the center of build and a large staircase circling form the lower to the higher levels.

The roof seems to be SNOT built which is done very well.
