The Wizard of Oz

    My round 3 entry for the MOCOlympics. The category is "There's no place like home". The original context for the quote is in The Wizard of Oz, which I chose to portray here.
    Check out the MOCpage for more pictures and greater details.
    Some stats about this.
    -Built in 5 days
    -Contains 7 different plate angles
    -Contains 28 minifigs.

    Anyhow, please leave some C&C to let me know what you think.
    Soli Deo Gloria.

      Very true. I was feebly trying to set the creation up as being an actual set, and listing all those useless details that LEGO does. I may just remove that phrase...

      Wait, what? You sold it? Why?

      Anyway, I like all the different layers and levels. I also enjoy that it's much more cheery and colorful than your average moc.

      Oh, wait. Did you not actually sell it, but just listing it for fun? I'm so confused. ;-)

      OK, I get it now. Reading the comments more carefully helps. ;-)

      So, how much planning do you do for something like this? Do have all your angles and layers planned out in advance, or do you just kind of slap them on as you build up from the bottom? Just wondering.

      I just listed a price for fun.

      This one didn't take too much planning. I was able to follow the movie for a little bit of it, so that helped. I have the general layout in my mind, and I try to stick to it when possible. For this one, I laid out the entire yellow brick road, and then added the water, and foliage around that. Since this is sort of a a huge mosaic as a floor, that was done first, and then the buildings, trees, and figs made their way into the scene. I build all my creations along those lines, but this one was rather unique because of the SNOTed base layer.

      Splendid! I don`t believe ever seeing any Wizard of Oz Mocs during my 4 years in the online Lego community. Nice to see something different!
