this is mostly run-of-the-mill but these are probably better wings than in any constraction set to date, or at least those made with CCBS (definitely better than dragon bolt's trainwreck)
Announce the Truth: Probably one of the best tracks. It had a good punch to it and really set the mood.
Pursuit: It was fine, but something about it felt a little…. off. It certainly wasn’t as good as Cornered, but is anything?
Objection: Mostly just a remix of Objection 2001, but that really worked considering they mainly used it as Phoenix’s theme.
Cross Examination: Before I played the game I was unsure on this track but it really worked, and they had the good grace to use a different track if the slightly-upbeat nature of this one just wouldn’t work.
overall: it really did a good job setting the mood, and my complaints are few. I was not disappointed.
Introducing the Elven Castle, a set idea based on the beloved Castles of Lego Castle past, with an elven twist. Much inspired by the works of Tolkien, I wanted it to look less like it was made of wood and more like it was grown from it. The build is very modular and a little repetitive, but this also means if you were to buy multiples you could easily make an even larger castle. Additionally, unlike my previous Fossil Museum project, for the Elven Castle, I tried to be mindful of what pieces are currently in production in what color; as a result, very few of the pieces come in colors they haven't come in in the past two years. This will, hopefully, aid in passing review, should it make it that far.
Areas I want to improve are the throne room segment, which was the last area to be built and suffers from me trying to keep the piece count from rising much more, and the piece count, which, as it stands now, is 1314 pieces, which would make for a set $110-$130 in price. While that's not much more expensive than the usual castle sets, I want to bring it down to about 1000 pieces, if possible, to keep it at a more affordable price. I would appreciate any comments and criticism on ways to improve this model before I take it to Ideas; I want it to be as perfect as possible, and I don't have a lot of experience working with System.
If you want a better look at it from more angles, you can download the .lxf here. Of note is that, like many castles, in the back is a prison, should you wish to imprison a nasty human for crimes against the forest.
Honestly, you can make this sound like some kind of crusade for justice all you want (I'm going to hope that some of how you worded it is just meant as hyperbole to make a point, though?), but it just comes across to me as being anti-fun and anti-imagination.
There's a time and a place for joke entries to place high in a contest (actually no there really isn't but w/e), but the first site-wide BZP contest is certainly not one of those times.
The first entry offended my eyes.
Well, this was probably in the bottom 3 comics I've read in my life. Didn't make much sense, and some things were hard to read because of the coloring and font style.
