Round Four Categories AND Matchups

 Group admin 
Welcome to round four of the 2011 MocOlympics! Good luck to all of you!

If you don’t know the rules by now, you’re a sad… sad person. But in the interest of fair play…


Round four starts NOW and will end at 11:59 pm, MOCpages time (Sunday) October 30th. No entries will be accepted after this time.

Your entry MUST:
Be titled "MocOlympics (may be shortened to MO) round 4 "You" vs "Your opponent." You may title it anything you wish after that but that must be the opening of the title.

Near the TOP of the entry you must state what category you are playing in and you must have a WORKING link to both the MocOlympics group AND your opponent's page. If you post your entry first then their homepage is fine, if they post first then link to their entry please. (You do not have to change it to their entry after they post but it would be nice to them if you did. Again, not needed and you will NOT be docked in any way if you don't. Your choice)

You must add your entry to the group pool (no, you don't need to leave any links, adding it to the group is good enough). Once you add it to the group, that's it, it's OURS and NO changes may be made. We STRONGLY suggest that you get feedback from others before adding it to the group. If any changes need to be made please do so BEFORE you add it to the group pool. The judges will NOT look at it until it's added to the group.

Once you and your opponent have posted and added to the group, the judges will vote on the mocs. There will be SIX judges for each matchup (no more brackets!). You must receive 4 out of 6 votes to advance to the next round. In case of a tie, a 7th judge will be brought in to break the tie.

Your judges are:
Chris Phipson, Matt David, Mr. Xenomurphy, Stacy Sterling, Dave Kaleta, El Barto

Alright, if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Here are the categories in the "influences" round...



Stormbringer vs Thoy Bradley in:

Devoured by a Rhinoceros - Build a scene or story inspired by one of British author, Roald Dahl’s children’s stories.


Rinse Jan vs George G. in:

Quoth the Raven - Build a scene or story based on the work of the American writer Edgar Allen Poe.


Dave Sterling vs Jason Corlett in:

Journey to the Center of the Earth - Build a scene or story inspired by the French author Jules Verne; science fiction pioneer.


Glory Forever vs António Silva in:

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice - Build a scene or story from the filmography of the American director/producer/artist Tim Burton.


Gabriel Thomson vs Grant W. in:

The Doorstep to the Temple of Wisdom- Choose a real ancient civilization (Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Chinese, Harappa, Iranian, Greek, Roman, Mayan, Aztec, Incian and so on) and build a temple in their style or art and architecture.


The Legohaulic vs Leda Kat =^..^= in:

Is Today Thorsday Already? - Create your own version of an aspect of Norse Mythology.


Wes Pitter vs The Fisherman in:

The Gates - Take your Lego out into the world and create a piece of environmental art in the spirit of the Bulgarian artist Christo. Your creation must exist (at least temporarily) and be photographed in the natural world.


Annie Corder vs Giovanni Seynhaeve in:

And Now for Something Completely Different - Build a scene or story based on the work of the British comedy troupe Monty Python.



Don't forget, luck is what you have left over after you give 100 percent; so go forth and build.

Tim Burton's Willy Wonka. That's got to be one of my favorite comedic movies of all time! "Ha! Ha! Ha! Yer really weird!" These look like intense categories, provided I move on in the MIT.

That's an awesome category, Wes. You should have a lot of fun with that one. Something that is totally outside the box of what any of us normally build. Have fun!

I think you actually got the best category Mr. Sterling! Good luck against jason corlett, I've no idea who to vote for, the guy who beat me or the Canadian. I look forward to seeing both of the entries.

I'm not so sure. Jason is a stellar Sci-Fi/Steampunk builder. I'm not feeling good about this round. Plus I've got to build this by Sunday night since I leave for a business trip early on Monday for the entire week.

That's most unfortunate, better get building!

Mwahaha, YES! This was the category that really caught my eye back when it was posted Tuesday. Things are about to get quite dark...

Just a question though: Am I allowed to make a couple of small mocs recreating a certain book from Roald Dahl that has some short stories in it?

Of course, knock yourself out! We stayed away from a lot of restrictions on purpose this year to give the builders more room for creative freedom. Good luck!

Ooooo...now I'm really excited to see your entry. I like Dahl's short stories better than his longer works in some ways. He packs such vivid imagery in those little stories. :)

Back from the Dead.

Unfortunatley I could not post my entry (or what was left of it) due to a major blackout from the unexpected blizzard that pummeled the east coast. My house had no power for three days. Blaah...

But hey, those entries look amazing and creative so far (particular Thoy's).

So my congratulations to Thoy for his victorious (if not easy) success (plus I would not have won against his colossal builds).

Even though I'm defeated I'll still stick around and see where this where this all ends (while adding a few notes).
