This Lego Elf Retreat is the creation of Inthert. It was built as an entry into the MOC Wars 2020, in the Armless category. Which meant the scene had to feature weapons that were not being used as weapons. With that in mind you might notice that almost everything in this Elf Retreat is built out of weapons. Check out the guns used for the tree trunk, the axes and rifles used as lumber, and even the quiver full of arrows being used as a stair step. The most inventive use though is in that chair at the lookout spot. The crossbows used for chair legs is inspired. The end result is one of the best looking minifigure scale chairs around. Ultimately, there are seven different types of weapons hidden around. It’s hard to tell if all of these walkways are built to stay out of the purple water because it somehow looks relaxing and poisonous. The lego doors being used for these walkways is also a great detail. Giving a recycling vibe to these elves. It seems very fitting.
“Oh potatoes and molasses, If you want some, oh just ask us…”
In 2014, the animated cartoon Over the Garden Wall was released right after Halloween. The show oozes with mystery and adventure, as Wirt and Greg are trying to find their way out of the woods. While they are lost they happen to find an extremely helpful bluebird named Beatrice. The whole show is animated in a 19th and early 20th century art style. It is a perfect Halloween/Thanksgiving story, and comes in at just about 2 hours. This Over the Garden Wall Lego MOC is the creation of Revan New. They used some clever vignetting and filters to simulate the look of the original show in their photos.
Some of the details present are great. Check out the teapot on Gregs head, and his side satchel. A great place to hide a Rock, some candy, and a certain Frog friend.
Wirt, the older brother is wearing his weird outfit. A large cloak and pointy hat. Then there is Beatrice. She sure wants to help the kids find Adelaide’s house. Hopefully they can find their way home…
