My opponent in this nautical match of building prowess is George Kemper. Best of luck George!
Aquastlenauts is the floundering brain child of Giovanni Seynhaeve that melds Castle and Aquanauts in the most brilliant way possible. I've been wanting to build in his theme since the second he first posted it.
My MOC depicts a clash of both good and bad forces who are all after the coveted Blue Diamond Pearl. King Lant of the Royal Knights Kingdom actually has rightful ownership of the area but that won't stop the Orcs of the Trident or the Dragon Shark Clan. Who will claim the Blue Diamond Pearl?
The dwarf, Bernstock Heetherkristin, and his dog hoped to remain neutral in this fight but the sudden appearance of two Dragon Shark Clan warriors may force them to fight!
King Lant and his trusty racing slug steed aren't about to give up the Blue Diamond Pearl to anyone!
Poor Royal Knight footsoldiers, those shark chariots are way too much for them!
Wow. lol. I will never complain about a lack of creativity in lego castle builders again :-)
Seriously, this is awesome. Great color palatte, great use of different elements...and yet sticks within the castle theme. Feels very Little Mermaid, but in a good way. Cool!
This is definitely one of the best entries so far! Excellent take on the wacky theme given to you! George had a great entry as well, and it was great to see you guys go head-to-head! Congrats on the first round victory!
I love the way you twisted the staples of the Castle theme around -- the racing slug and the Dwarf beard/diving goggles combination are both clever details. The overall MOC is well coordinated despite the huge number of different colors. Awesome work.
Definetely the best of the MocOlympics as of now. I would have liked to get this theme, but you've topped my expectations for what could be done. I love how you packed so much action and color into a small space. This is a perfect entry.
I hadn't even seen Aquastlenauts until now, but i'm delighted to have found it! This is a superb build packed with colour, cool details and ideas and some nice parts use. I love the undersea volcano effect with the white net, the dog with snorkel and who won't love the shark chariots? Well done.
Quoting George Kemper
when do I have to post mine, whats the end date?

I'm looking forward to seeing what you'll build in this crazy theme.
Lots of nice parts usage and lots of cool stuff going on. Love the sea snail steed. This'll take some beating, but good luck to the both of you. I wanted one of the mash-up catergories, but I guess that's the will of the cosmos
