The inspiration for this MOC was a very funny Hungarian movie, Kemenykalap es krumpliorr. This MOC is a hommage for Alfonzo, the actor who plays the ice-cream vendor, who in the movie tries to disguise himself in various outfits, but he always wears the same pair shoes so the kids always figure out that it is him in the disguise. In one scene, he puts on a firefighter's dress. The other minifigs are Leopoldi, the clown, and the Capitain, who is the keeper of the park.
It is one of several small MOCs I built over a long day, in preparation for a train layout we improvised for an exhibition.
Are you referring to your Cybercity project? I always like when a single builder builds something large and detailed, I mean a whole city. So although I would probably not build in your style, I would encourage you to keep focus on a single idea and give it your best, be it castle, industrial city, retro city, countryside, moonbase, whatever. It will be a rewarding experinece. Of course the best builders can be masters in several styles, but that is not only question of talent, it takes more resources. Different types of brick, larger inventory, budget, less time for each project, etc. So my motto is this: the hardest part is finding your genre or theme, after that you just have to stick to it. When it becomes boring, you can always pick up another theme. Also, it is OK to steal / borrow from other builders but you build up your talent, you will not need it. Let your own genious guide your hands.
