    After my other big Lego Cuusoo Project "Lego The Smurfs", also a Belgian theme, I decided to honor Hergé and "his" Tintin character, with a new lego cuusoo project: "Lego The Adventures of Tintin".

    It was the 2011 3D motion capture computer-animated epic adventure movie "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn" that finally pushed me and inspired me to create a whole new Lego theme: Lego Tintin. The lego Tintin sets will make the best scenes of the 2011 Tintin movie, the Tintin sequel and possible the third Tintin movie playable for kids and collectors.

    The movie, directed by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson, is based on three of Hergé's albums: The Crab with the Golden Claws (1941), The Secret of the Unicorn (1943), and Red Rackham's Treasure (1944). My project will focus on the main action scenes in this first Tintin movie. There will be a sequel and probably even a third movie, so Lego has enough possibility's to make this a fantastic theme. I just decided to give them a helping hand...

    To push my project, I decided to contact Moulinsart S.A., who owns the exploitation rights related to the work of Hergé. I will present my project to them as well. It only shows that I want to do everything to make this a success.

    That said, let me introduce you to my 5 movie scenes:

    1. Lego Marlinspike Hall:

    I started with lego Marlinspike Hall, a huge lego set that contains 2898 pieces including the fantasy base plate, which shouldn't be in the upcoming lego set, but does make a nice picture. It will also include the green vintage cabriolet in which Tintin, Captain haddock and Snowy later arrive at the scene, as well as the following minifigures: a lego Tintin, a lego Captain Haddock, a lego Butler Nestor and a lego Snowy, the fox-terrier.

    The frontside of this set is a rebuild of Marlinspike Hall as shown in the movie, the backside is reserved for a basement construction, so kids can find their own lego Tintin treasure.

    2. The Seaplane Attack on the Lifeboat:

    In this scene Tintin and Captain Haddock, who just escaped from the SS Karaboudjan, are under attack while floating in their capsized lifeboat. This set contains 423 pieces and includes the lego lifeboat on a sea baseplate, the yellow lego seaplane and the following minifigures: Tintin, Captain Haddock, two accomplices of Sakharine and the fox terrier Snowy.

    3. Omar Ben Salaad's Palace in Bagghar:

    After escaping the seaplane attack, Tintin and Captain Haddock, as well as Snowy, arrive at the Port of Bagghar. They are invited to Omar Ben Salaad's Palace, where Bianca Castafiore, also known as the Milanese Nightingale, will attend the evening with an opera song. The vibrations from her voice will break the glass cabinet which holds the Unicorn.

    This will be another huge lego set, containing up to 2952 lego bricks and will include many features in the unique Moroccan building style that I redesigned for this set. I had to create lost of elements from the movie to make it a replayable scene: the flooring, the bridges, the stairs, the fountain, the glass cabinets with artworks, the statues, the chandlesticks,... and the pavilion with the glass cabinet holding the Unicorn.

    It also comes with a series of minifigures:

    Tintin and Snowy;
    Captain Haddock;
    Thomson and Thompson;
    a lego Omar Ben Salaad and a lego Bianca Castafiore;
    a lego Ivan Ivanovich Sakharine, his bird and three lego Accomplices of Sakharine;
    Six lego Citizens of Bagghar.

    5. The Crane Fight at the Docks:

    In this scene Ivan Ivanovich Sakharine nearly escapes from his lego oldtimer into his crane and fights against Captain Haddock who eventually, with some help, succeeds in defeating Sakharine.

    The set contains two large scale lego dock cranes, Sakharines lego vintage car and the following minifigures: Captain Haddock, Sakharine and Thomson and Thompson.

    For this scene I used up to 624 lego bricks.

    So this is my Lego The Adventures of Tintin Project, I hope you are all impressed by my work.

    By accident my partner put the original ldd files available for free, this is of course a mistake, given the fact I spend a lot of time on making these. We apologize for that.
