So I’ve been working in my spare time (especially difficult during the HSC), and have finally finished what is my most ambitious MOC to date: The Battle for the Marbled Temple!
The concept is fairly loosely based on the Skybound wave, and has the characters from that wave as portrayed in the sets. Essentially it consists of the following: I like floating islands. I like Ninjago. I especially liked the ‘Djinjago’ saga. I also like skulls. Thus, a pair of floating islands, with the Ninja attempting to retrieve the revered skull of the Elder Nikolai, while under attack by the Sky Pirates (anyone else getting severe Edge Chronicles vibes here?)!
In addition, the Temple is designed to lift off, sitting on tiles and recurrent studs as an anchor. This is just to help in transport.
An overview of the islands:

More pictures of details are contained within the summary tag. The stands are simply there to hold it up, I don’t have enough clear pieces to do it properly unfortunately.
Comments and criticism much appreciated!
