....Will you let them in?  :lol:

So I was playing around tonight and this was what I came up with.

Yes, an Ogre or two will have to push it into place, but it will help get those knights to open their gates.  :lol:

Wow, that is one nice battering ram! I pondered about building one for some time now, too.

Edit: It looks larger than it is, doesn't it? You could place a minifig next to it to get a better feeling for the size.

I did not think so, tried to make sure no Megablox got into my personal stash. But if it is, I will be changing it as soon as I get back home.  :oops:

Whoa, that's excellent work. The presence of a siege ram indicates there will be something for it to ram against. This is happy news.  :D

I really want to know what that piece on the front of the ram is, and which brand it's from. I want some, clone brand or not.

The ram is nice, too. I agree with Apollyon, it looks a lot bigger than it actually is, which could be an advantage, I guess. :lol:

Ok, the part does not have Lego on it anywhere I can see.  :(

As to what brand it might be, that is for someone else to say for sure.

Interesting, I have never owned that set. Makes me wonder what batch of Lego I did get it in.

For now, I am leaving it on. I do not have a clear replacement for the moment. Once I come up with one I will deal with it then.  :lol:
