“Where did Morgana get a dragon from?”
BBC’s wonderful show Merlin has run for five thrilling seasons and now the adventure continues in LEGO form! The series Merlin is a reimagining of the classic King Arthur tales, with the sorcerer Merlin as a young man living in Camelot where magic is banned. He must conceal his powerful abilities while protecting the kingdom. Filled with magic, action, and monsters, Merlin would be a perfect addition to LEGO.
This set is loosely based on the episode “With All My Heart.” As Merlin, Arthur, and Mordred journey to the Cauldron of Arianrhod to save Gwen from an evil enchantment, disaster strikes. The villainous Morgana has sent the white dragon, Aithusa, to destroy them. Can Merlin use his Dragonlord abilities to control Aithusa, or will the white dragon defeat him?
The main feature of the set is the rocky path leading to the Cauldron of Arianrhod as well as the Cauldron itself (the Cauldron is actually an enchanted lake). I diligently created all the scenery to be show accurate. Play features include a rod to throw a minifigure (as though with magic), and a spinning rock chamber to change Merlin into the Dolma.
Accessories include a backpack, Mordred’s sword, the sword Excalibur, and Gwen’s wedding ring.
Six minifigures are included: the young warlock, Merlin; the once and future king, Arthur Pendragon; the lovely queen, Guinevere; the loyal knight, Mordred; the cruel witch, Morgana; and Merlin’s embarrassing alter ego, the Dolma.
And now for the star of the set, the white dragon, Aithusa. Aithusa is probably one of my favorite things I’ve ever built! I challenged myself to use a variety of unfamiliar pieces (at least to myself) to create her sleek design.
This set would allow Merlin fans to reenact many key moments of the show in LEGO form, as well as create their own stories in a land of myth. It would also appeal to non-fans, as well, as it includes many fantasy oriented minifigures, as well as a dragon (and doesn’t everyone love dragons?). If you want LEGO Merlin to become a reality, please support and leave a comment if you have the time. Thank you so much for reading!
