Battle for the Princess
30 IX 14

MocOlympics is an annual LEGO competition held on MOCpages. After a preliminary round, 64 builders face off in head-to-head build-offs in a single elimination tournament. Each round the builders in each pairing are given a theme, and CC member Justin M was given the theme "Good vs Evil" in his second round matchup. He came up with the Battle for the Princess and moves on to round 3. See all of Justin's creations on Flickr and go cheer him on in the tournament on MOCpages. Then be sure to comment on his MOC in our forum.

Battle of the Castle Sets: 7020 vs 7041
27 IX 14

Two sets enter the arena, only one can emerge victorious! 2006 set 7041, Army of Vikings with Heavy Artillery Wagon, versus 2008 set 7020, Troll Battle Wheel. Which castle set reigns supreme? Vote and share your thoughts on these two sets.

Village of White Lilies
25 IX 14

Adolfo is a Brazilian AFOL and a member of our forum. He recently built the Village of White Lilies for a contest held by LUG Brasil. This was his first MOC built as an AFOL that was based purely on his own creativity and not based on an existing structure. Check this out along with his other creations on Flickr and then in our forum.

CC Set Review: 9471 - Uruk-Hai Army
23 IX 14

Join the Classic Castle set review discussion. Please post your opinions on the set play ability, piece selection, design, etc. Which sets stand up to our catapult of critique and which ones crumble in shame!

This week’s set is 9471, Uruk-Hai Army.

This set connects to our previous CC Set Review, 9474, The Battle of Helm's Deep, and it serves both to extend the fortress wall and as an army builder. On the side of Rohan the set has Eomer on horseback and a standard foot soldier on a piece of wall. The side of Orthanc is represented by four Uruk-Hai (in three different variations) and a siege weapon.

Gilbert's Stronghold
19 IX 14

CC member Dubbagrim built Gilbert's Stronghold, a fortress for Gilbert the Bad. Check out all of the features, along with Dubbagrim's other MOCs, in his Flickr account, and then discuss it in our forum.

Waiting for the results
18 IX 14

A lone piper stands on the walls of Edinburgh Castle (in Legoland Windsor), looking to the horizon. Does he see a free Scotland? Or perhaps a renewal of joining of the two kingdoms under their first joint king, James VI/I? Share your favorite Scottish MOC in our forum.

Hobbit: The Battle of The The The The Five Armives sets
17 IX 14

The four LEGO sets for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies have started appearing in some stores. They weren't supposed to come out for a few weeks, so you may or may not find them at a store near you, but Flickr user Mweithoff bought them all and posted images. The sets are as follows:

79015 Witch-king battle - This small set includes a small structure, Elrond, Galadriel, and the Witch King.
79016 Attack on Lake-town - This set includes Bard the Bowman, his son Bain, Tauriel, two orcs, and a portion of Lake-town that might make a good expansion pack for the previous Lake-town set.
79017 The Battle of Five Armies - This set includes Thorin, Dain (his kinsman from the Iron Hills and potential heir), Legolas, Bard, Azog, two other orcs, and a great eagle (identified as Gwaihir). It also includes a ballista and a structure that is presumably part of Dale.
79018 The Lonely Mountain - This set includes Bilbo, Fili, Kili, Balin, Dwalin, and a large molded Smaug, in addition to a portion of the throne room of Erebor.

See the pictures and share your first impressions in our forum.

Beyond the Clouds
10 IX 14

CC forum member Unitronus (Stormbringer on Flickr) has made a great number of MOCs based on the How to Train Your Dragon movies, including six (!) iterations of Toothless. His most recent MOC puts Hiccup and Toothless Beyond the Clouds. You can even build your own, as he has created instructions for Toothless. Check this out along with all of his other MOCs on Flickr and then discuss it in our forum.

Bound: the Contest
10 IX 14

Monitogo Studios is producing Bound, a full length castle-themed brickfilm, and YOU can get involved. Greg Tull, the director, and his team have asked us to help create the background for the scene above. What are these people riding past? Abandoned ruins? A dark forest? Distant mountains? Build an all-LEGO scene and take a photo that can be digitally inserted into this scene, and you can be part of the movie. Find all of the contest details in this forum thread.

CC Set Review: 9474 - The Battle of Helm's Deep
5 IX 14

Join the Classic Castle set review discussion. Please post your opinions on the set playability, piece selection, design, etc. Which sets stand up to our catapult of critique and which ones crumble in shame!

This week’s set is 9474, The Battle of Helm's Deep.

This large set depicts what may be the most iconic location in the Lord of the Rings - at least I have seen far more MOCs based on Helm's Deep than on any other location. It includes the Hornburg and a section of the Deeping Wall. The set includes eight figures, four from each side so you can stage an evenly matched battle. On the side of Rohan the set includes repeats of the Aragorn and Gimli figures and two exclusive figures - Theoden and Haldir. On the side of Saruman the set includes four Uruk-Hai, one of which is an exclusive - the 'beserker'.
