After seeing the Legion of Doom and Sir Nardoj flexing their poetic muscle, I thought I'd take a stab at poetry! I would have liked to overlay the text over the images (like a storybook!) but had not composed the photos with that in mind. Well, next time anyway!
About this creation
Far out at sea, (bout' three hundred miles)
They live in a house on a tree on an isle
"Who's they?" you ask in poor-grammered manner
"Who lives in this fantasmagorical hangar?"
Meet Maxwell Mulligan, Pilot Grade-A
"Adventure awaits! Lets start the day!"
So let's powder our nose
And scrub head to toes
And then introduce without further delay...
Pugsy the Putter-Pod, ready for action!
The versatile, reversable, happy contraption!
It's not coal, wood or solar that powers his parts
But the daydreams and wishes in all childrens hearts
unicorns, rainbows, and strawberry tarts
lollypop kisses and teddy bear farts!
A putter-pod faster than anyone reckons
From zero to ZOW-WEE! in 2.2 seckonds!
The ideal pilot's partner with gadgets galore
He's ready for whatever dangers in store!
So no further delay, it's time that we hurried!
To explore far-off lands where secrets are buried!
To stop the Bad Baron and his bad gremlin ilk!
To rescue some damsels! (Or perhaps just buy milk.)
This is amazing... I love everything about it, especially the rhyming... ;)
I love the way you made the actual hangar for the pod... Could you make a tutorial on how you arched the room like that... It looks amazing...
despite the fact that the figure is a fleshie, this is still one of the most amazing mocs i've ever seen! i especially love the technique you used when building the different gadgets on the 'pugsy' thaeng
Peter, you've been Recycled! I've chosen your creation to copy for my entry in the MocOlympics, Round 4. You can see my entry here: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/156576
I would have given you advance notice, but I didn't want to tip off my opponent.
I'm almost unnaturally obsessed with space. never even bother looking at anything not space related, but what can I say? you got me. awesome work here. Also, the back story poem is swell. Were you channeling Dr.Suess and Einstien at the same time?
This is a wonderful original. When I saw it I immediately passed it on to the Brothers-Brick blog (congratulations, they highlighted it). From concept to creation this is a delight to look at. I'm still smiling about egg-beater wings (engines?). Pure win.
Simply amazing. When I first saw the gadgets pop out of Pugsy the Putter-Pod, I thought you just threw on a yo-yo, a pencil, and so on. Then, looking closer, I realized they were actual Legos. Just one of many fun surprises in here. Great original poetry. Thanks for sharing.
I love this. I'll mention some things that really stand out as the best among all the awesomeness. The gadgets that popped out of the Putter-Pod are priceless, the details like the toilet and bathtub really add to the whimsy, the poemish story is perfect and to top it all off the built quality is excellent. Did I mention I love this?
Great MOC (for some reason a good Lego treehouse will always win me over -- and this is very very good), and nice silly poem. Whatever your inspiration for it was, I was put in mind of Edward Lear's "The Jumblies.": http://www.nonsenselit.org/Lear/ns/jumblies.html
