MocOlympics Round #5, Kevin Fedde vs. Aliencat

About this creation
Category: Eat me, Drink me
Illustrious Opponent: Aliencat
And if you understand the challenging topic, here is what I changed the scale of, the Luna Spire
Anyone who was part of the Lego scene when the moonbase craze was going on should know what this is. The Luna Tower was probably the most famous moonbase module ever made.

A few starting notes.
1. Sorry for the tan parts on the bottom of 2 of the struts, I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel here with regards to pieces.
2. Sorry for the crappy editing on a few of the pictures.
And now, with no further ado, I give you:

THE LUNA SPIRE! in micro!

"At over 42 studs tall, the Luna Spire towers above the micro-moonscape."


"A revolving restaurant 29 studs above the ground offers fine dining and a fantastic view."


"Inside, a large multi-level lobby offers comfortable seating and plenty of room for social functions."


"At the north side of the building, a landing pad for small spacecraft offers an alterative entrance. Working lights guide the spacecraft to the pad. Two airlocks lead into the base."


"In the orientation shown here, two corridors have been attached to the east side of the building. The other corners are closed off with windows."


"Working elevators connect the restaurant to the base, where up to six corridors connect the building with the rest of the Moonbase."
Yes, the elevators in the Micro-version DO actually work!


It seems a giant space monkey has made the top of the Spire his home...


And I'll leave you with a comparison shot with the original, 190 stud original.

And now, since I'm going to be eliminated, I can make something for myself!

This is a most excellent build. Instantly recognisable, too. There are a lot of smashing details here, but what surprised me the most was noticing that you'd been emulating the classic space base plates with craters in it. Awesome!

Sorry, but you are still in the game and still building for us. You have my vote and the win. Lee.

I do hope you win this round, your creation is most definitely better then the warthog! And I love all the small details, like the landing pad, that make it that much cooler. I also love the curves of the tower, as opposed to just straight lines and angles.

I don't get how this fits into the category.

Holy smokes, Fedde...AMAZING. Aliencat did a fantastic job, as well. Nevertheless, I'm also going to give you my vote. I really feel like you did an outstanding job altering the scale while retaining SO much of the original creation. The fact that you've got a bit of functionality in there with the moving elevator is icing on the cake. Great stuff!

My my my Kevin, this is just AMAZING. Like I just told Aliencat, at this stage of the competition, there are no winners or losers, only opinions. And in this case my friend, mine goes with you. While Cat's entry was "Just TOO fraggin cool!" with that RC addition, your entry won me over by having the larger size difference ie: your shrinkage was more than his growth... can't believe I just typed that... ANYWAY, good luck with the other judges! ~ Chris.

A tough one, to be sure, but you've captured the look and feel of the original in microscale. To go to the trouble to make the elevators work (well, it'd be trouble for me anyway) shows a level of dedication that proves you deserved a spot in this round! Good work -- makes me want to have another go at a fig-scale moonbase module soon.

Awesome stuff man! I remember the Luna Spire, and you've really captured the shape perfectly! Great job :) I hope mine will be up to par with this (it's almost done)

Beautiful rendition of a truly awesome original. The working parts really add to the quality. Great job and good luck with the judges.

Quoting Dave Shaddix I don't get how this fits into the category.
Here's Chris's exact words on how to do the category: "Aliencat vs Kevin Fedde in - Eat me, Drink me: This one is similar to last round’s “recycle” category. Your mission is to take a moc that we all know and switch up the scale for your reproduction. “What the he…?” you may be asking yourself. It’s simple. You can choose to make a microscale creation into minifig scale or vice versa. If you were to choose mirco to minifig with say, “Shannonia” then your job would be to make a section of Shannonia to minifig scale. If you were to chose minifig to micro you could take for example, one of Eggy’s Castles and redo it microscale. (If you don’t get the title, look up “Through the looking glass”)"

Maybe, if you still have energy left... I was out of commission for a week after I got out. I'll invite you to the Spinning Top contest, so you can unwind a little :)
