Behind the Scenes Information...
This set started out as a entry for the Monthly MOC Competition for January(ALWAYS have a good start to a year). I decided to build a Stone Warrior Camp, much to my disappointment that LEGO has not released one yet. I immediately decided that it must have plenty of references to the TV show, but must never retain the boring purple tent shown in the TV series. I started by doing some sketches. The only thing that remains unchanged throughout my sketches was the gate, so I started on it first. The gate was a traditional design of using a face as the design with the mouth as the gate, a design that LEGO has used many times, like the Skull Fortress in Castle and the Lion CHI Temple about to be released. Obviously , the motif would be a samurai, like other Ninjago sets. This proved to be a challenge for a person like me who didn't own any Ninjago sets at all. Anyway, I pulled it off and the gate is complete. I decided to add a mini prison cell at the back as a challenge to break the record of 'smallest prison cell ever'. :P I also added a small gun at the side of the 'shoulder pad'.
