Minifigure: The Space Miners' Cavern
From giant crystals to
strange alien creatures, The Space Miners' Cavern is full of surprises! A
heavy-duty trapdoor protects the valuable energy crystals below and doubles up
as a way to keep the local inhabitants from making unexpected visits to the surface
(at least theoretically).
I added lots of fun
details to this scene including: giant crystals, crystal veins in the cavern
floor, stalagmites and stalactites, colorful alien creatures, lime green
tentacles grabbing a crate of crystals, a heavy-duty trapdoor, a detailed
mining robot, and of course five space minifigures. I built the cavern base
using the "Studs Not On Top" building technique, and used side
connecting bricks to attach the rest of the cave to the flat surface.
Note to LEGO: I built
the cavern using bricks in a couple different shades of dark gray, but if it's selected,
I can use all "dark bluish gray" colored bricks if needed.
