70676 Lloyd's Titan Mech Alt-Build Challenge
by Isaac S 2 years ago

70676 Lloyd's Titan Mech Alt-Build Challenge

This challenge is based on showing how much creativity can be expressed, even when you only have a single set to work with!
Eight InnovaLUG members each used a single copy of set 70676 Lloyd's Titan Mech to create an original model.
We didn't share any pictures with each other until all the builds were completed, and the variety of scenes built shows just how limitless the LEGO system is, even when working with a very limited parts selection.

Noctura's Keep: Behind the Build
by Isaac S 3 years ago

Elves: Noctura's Keep

Our third build based off of the Elves theme, this time we took inspiration primarily from #41194 Noctura's Tower and the Earth Fox Rescue.
Once again this model was made possible due to receiving a good number of Elves sets from the LCE Team.

The color scheme of the tower gave a different challenge than our Goblin Village and Elves Forest Fortress models due to our limited parts in Dark Blue and Dark Turquoise (Teal).
