An ogre breaks wind (mill)

LEGO builder Peter Revan tells us don’t piss of the ogre. Upon mulling that over I filed that under good sage advice. Upsetting an ogre can result in your teeth suddenly being where your feet should be and vice versa. Hopefully, this particular ogre is made sweeter and more sedated by compliments because I genuinely like his shaping and clever build techniques. I’m also rather fond of the horse, cart, windmill, and scared little minifigure occupants that help establish the scale of this massive creature. If you feel like you’ve seen the ogre, horse, and cart around the neighborhood before, that is because you have.

Don't piss off the ogre! V2

Why rehash a previously featured LEGO creation, you may ask? Is this the result of lazy writing? Well, perhaps. But I genuinely believe the addition of the windmill and diorama offers an excellent setting that better illustrates the world this ogre lives in. Plus once you’ve squeezed out a title that fiendishly clever, there’s really no putting a cork in it once you’ve let loose that bout of genius flatulence humor into the world. Can you find it in your hearts to forgive me?

Best not to ask what the secret ingredient is...

Bard Jaskier is cooking up a storm in this Warhammer inspired LEGO build. The longer you explore this build, you’re certainly rewarded with the subtle detail scattered around the scene from the rock detail framing the build to the bones littering the floor. Take a look at the cauldron, an inverted tire captures the perfect size and shape with the snake pieces perfectly looking the part for wisps of smoke from the – well, best not to think about what’s cooking…

That is one pissed off ogre!

As a kid I always had a very vivid imagination. So vivid that I was able to scare myself to the point where I was too afraid to go to sleep. This LEGO ogre by Peter Revan would surely be enough to cost me a good night’s sleep. I can also totally identify with the wagon driver as he looks quite stressed out and a bit scared. Which of course isn’t that strange since he most likely is the one who pissed off the ogre. Things that make this creation stand out are the amount of angles used to create the wagon. Thanks to all the slanted walls it doesn’t look like a box on wheels. Speaking of the wheels, even those are placed at an angle making the wagon look like it is really heavy loaded. Perhapst this little wagon chauffeur loaded his wagon full with valuables which he stole from the ogre. I could totally see why that would piss you off! The ogre looks like it is completely poseable and the face is worth a closer look. The amount of detail used to create the facial expression is just superb.
