Willow - Battle Of Tir Asleen


Last Updated . Click "Updates" above to see the latest.

I am delighted to share with you my submission to LEGO Ideas. You are invited to join a world of *Nelwyn*, *Dakini*, sorcerers, a two-headed monster and more. The model shows a detailed interpretation of the battle scene at castle Tir Asleen (close of the motion picture from 1988) with about 2,900 bricks used.

It includes the following minifigures and animals:
- Willow with Elora Danan as baby
- Madmartigan and Sorsha
- Fin Raziel as goat and raven
- General Kael with 3 Nockmar warriors
- A troll and a skeleton
- An Eberisk (A two-headed monster – oh my dear!)
- A rat, some spiders and a horse

The model has four sections:
- castle wall with main gate
- left tower with armoury and prison
- right tower with weapons room and ambush
- tree with a pretty axe

Sample of functions:
- separate the sections for greater playground and more playability
- main gate and portcullis that open/close
- hidden (and less hidden) entrances
- flames to set the castle on fire, just like you want to
- barrel defence… spider surprise… crossbow ambush…

I've grown up under the reign of LEGO Knights and Pirates and excited about fantasy and historical movies of the 80s and 90s, I have rediscovered my love to bricks, plates and tiles as adult. That's why I decided to create a model, with which today's kid's can grow up like I did. Equally, yesterday’s kids (like me) can tap into the memory of their childhood for nostalgic and magical moments. With this ambition in mind, it was important that both, today's and yesterday's children can find excitement for the set. It should unite playability and the passion for collecting and displaying.
