A little more work on the ears

John-Lennon (hmm, I thought he was dead) made another entry for the Eurobricks contest, this one is a dressing room for the Lord of the Rings movie. The elf fig should be sitting in the chair getting the final touchup on his makeup. One quibble - if that's supposed to be John Rhys-Davies waiting for Orlando Bloom to finish, he's actually quite tall. I remember in the commentary tracks they noted that he was about the right height relative to the actors playing the hobbits so that when they were shooting a scene involving, say, Gimli and Frodo, they didn't have to do any special camera tricks or editing to get the heights.

Eurobricks Collectible Series 3 Contest

Eurobricks is hosting another of their Collectible Series contests. The idea for category A is that you create a vig to display one of the figs from Series 3, but don't actually include the fig in the vig. For instance see Turambar1's vig built to house a fisherman.
