Dun-da Dun Dun-da Da-Dun!

Okay, so that may have not been one of the greatest written representation of an amazing soundtrack, but it's the best I could do.  Similarly, Zed has done his best to create a historical moment for our favorite archaeologist.  See what I did there?  The texturing to the ruins is executed so well, using common parts that most have in even basic collections.  My favorite little detail is that design right over the doorway, using 1x2 plates with "tracks."  Indy looks like he's about to lose his hat, but we all know that he will narrowly escape danger and retrieve it before it's lost.  Does this build give you some ideas for some ancient ruins?  What's your favorite Indiana Jones film?  How would you write out his theme song?  I'm genuinely curious. . .

     My name is Nathaniel Stoner, and I am an very active LEGO builder.  I mostly build in the themes of castle and science-fiction, but I also dabble in other genres and create occasional random MOC's (My Own Creations). 

     When I was younger, I would get and build small LEGO sets for my birthday, but I was never really into them.  When they fell apart, I would become frustrated attempting to put them back together and would throw them in a box in my closet.  I couldn't stand them!

     Then, miraculously, I became addicted to the LEGO brick later in my teen years.  Ever since, I have continued to build up (pun intended) my collection of bricks and to expand my knowledge of techniques and building skills.  LEGO is truly more than a toy, its an art form and a way to express yourself.

     For the most part, I collect LEGO Star Wars (mainly the minifigs), which is probably my favorite LEGO theme.  I have a fairly decent collection, including some of the original 1999 sets, such as the Snowspeeder, X-Wing, and Naboo starfighter.  I also collected LEGO the Lord of the Rings when those sets first came out.  The minifigs are great, and the story remains one of my favorites ever. 

     My hope is to inspire other young (and perhaps even older) LEGO builders to unleash their inner creativity!  You can find me on my Flikr here
