Monk is one of my favorite shows. Saabfan approached me about collaborating on it and in the long run, I just could not resist. This one was a LOT of fun.
Pick of the WeekChinese New Year Dragon
This is one of those projects I have considered doing for a long time. One reason being that I walk by a ad for joining a Dragon/Lion league every day.
Mibitat has showcased a beautiful Dragon head (love the palms for the ears/horns) and a great, authentic looking body.
This design does appear to be a bit out of proportion with what I am familiar with. I assume the awesome dragon head dictated the scale of everything else though, and I think Mibitat made the right decision in that case.
I am not directly familiar with the show but I know the type. The use of Classic Lego references is what really sells me on this project. That is knowing your audience.

by beau1913so is the one in 9th ranking on Ideas. It had two years to reach 6250 and has minifigure elements. It will be interesting to see how this one compares in the long run.
Now I know that most multistory buildings are pretty much identical on every story, such as Parisian Drugstores, but these do not make for compelling modulars in my experience.
