He came to me and asked for a challenge. His room was clean and I guess he just couldn’t handle it! “Tell me what you want me to make,” he said. I immediately went to the map of Disneyland I keep on the wall by my bed (Doesn’t everybody have one by their bed!?). We looked at it together and I thought it would be cool to see the Matterhorn. I could almost see the wheels start turning in his head.
He disappeared into his room for a few hours. The next day he appeared with his creation! Check out these details:
But wait, there’s more! The entire model opens up to show the inside. The Lego version is fairly empty, save for the dripping water and basketball hoop. The real Matterhorn ride actually has a small basketball court in its upper area. It was a clever use of the empty space at the top of the ride and the mountain climbers use it on their breaks.
The Matterhorn just wouldn’t seem right with out the Yeti creeping around inside! But Geek Spawn is having trouble finding his abominable snowman minifig. But he’ll join the fun once he is found!
So, once again, Geek Spawn has made an amazing creation, loaded with nerdish details!
