This is my vig for Shannon "rocks" Young's vig/orama contest.
About this creation
All is quite.
The woodlands are peaceful, and the flowers sway gently in the morning breeze.
The only signs of minifig inhabitance is a lone stump and worn engraving on an old stone. The forest is calm, but underneath...
A group of minifigs gather...
to cleanse the world...
of the filth that is called megabloks!
So this my MOC for Shannon Young's vig/orama contest. i had no idea what to make, then (cause i read all the rules) i saw that Shannon Young did not like megabloks. And so i thought to myself: "I don't like building with megabloks either, maybe lego people don't like megabloks too." And so that is where the inspiration for this MOC came from.
The "megablok haters" from the side.
If you look carefully you can see that those blocks in the fire really are megabloks.
My minifigs who hate megabloks. notice that one has a torch to light the fire, and the other has an axe just cause it makes the MOC look cooler. They are wearing the same uniforms.
The lower chamber without the minifigs.
As you can see I use an 8x8 base but because of the size of my fire I had to extend the floor by 1 stud so that the minifigs would fit. I used rotating plates so that the minifigs could face the proper directions.
The next few pictures are all close ups of the fire and the stone floor without the minifigs.
sacrifice!! sacrifice!! sacrifice!! wow that is good. i hate megabloks because they are cheaply made bricks that either do not stick together at all or stick together so much you need two tanks to pull them apart. but LEGO ROCKS!!

It's that fact you actually HAVE megabloks that bugs me...
(Ah, that's all my relatives get me for my birthday. I've tried to tell them the difference, but...)
yeah, i used to get megabloks when i was little. i had not yet realized the difference. but i am glad to say that my megabloks collection is the minority population in the land of my lego desk. i have found a new use for them though, i'm going to use them as casualties of war, or "examples" of the power of lego (in both cases i will melt them and then add the melted bodies and buildings to my lego mocs, it will be great)
I like the concept a lot and myself view megabloks as filthy impurities. However, I fear Shannon is so much of a purist that even though you demonize them here, the fact that you used them nonetheless could mean trouble. But his computer has fallen ill! Hurry and re-shoot before he catches you!
