This is my entry into Giovanni's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Contest. It's a Dolphin.
About this creation


For those unfamiliar with the series, the dolphins are the smartest mammals on the planet and leave Earth right before it is destroyed to make way for an intergalactic highway. Their final words before leaving our planet....."So long, and thanks for all the fish."















Thanks for putting on the contest Gio, it really sparked my imagination and had me pull off what I feel is my best MOC to date. Hope you all enjoy!

Awesome! The only thing missing is a towel. Although never mentioned in the book, I'm sure the dolphins recognized the importance of having one.

Nice dolphin! The water is brilliant too! Good job capturing the feeling of "still motion", as it were. Well done!

The dolphin is really natural-looking and organic, and the HGTTG references work well here. Although you got one thing wrong... the mice were smarter, and also mammals.

Quoting Lando L. Jackson I'm afraid you're wrong about that. Dolphins are the SECOND smartest animals on Earth, mice being the smartest.

Nice work! Wow he is so smooth, he looks perfectly like a dolphin, especially adore his nose, excellent. Love the water base and the splash technique as it leaps up through it. Tremendous!

My pleasure, Heath! This is one beauty of an entry here; all the harder for the competition to follow. Now, hasn't anybody mentioned a Petunia and a spermwhale yet? Hmmm...

Wow, great work! One of the best MOCs I've seen so far in terms of efficiency. In other words, you get the point across extremely well with remarkably few elements, which, in my opinion, makes the whole thing seem much more elegant than larger creations. Just remember, DON'T PANIC.

Quoting Dave and John Xandegar Don't let Chris fool you, Heath...he's just happy for the opportunity to attribute his "stunned" to something other than just being awake. But seriously...this is awesome! Hope you're bringing it to BrickWorld...Johnny and I look forward to meeting you!
Thank you very much for the kind words Dave! I definitely will bring it out to BW, and look forward to meeting you both. Well, it will be a first for meeting everyone actually! LOL we're looking forward to mixing it up with the community's elite!!

I tried to comment back Dave, but the filter did not approve of the words "Thank" and "You". Hopefully someday we can get some leniency on this language filter. Until then....seriously, thank you all for the kinds comments!

Wow....thank you all for the very kind comments! I'm glad that you enjoy this MOC as much as I do. The dolphin is a whole assembly and can be removed from the base.....no missing tail. I wanted to do something epic for the contest, but wanted to stay within my brick inventory too so had to compromise a bit. Best compromise ever! And the answer is ALWAYS 42.

Having just experienced a dolphin encounter a few weeks ago, I declare that this is a very accurate depiction of how Bill (all dolphins are named Bill, btw) comes out of the water. You really capture the action here -- the surprise of him coming out of the water so gracefully is perfection. Great work!

uh... wow! i agree with your feelings on this being your best MOC to date, it's stunning! Like others have said organic builds are a lot harder to do well than inorganic ones, so kudos for that and the water effect is pretty amazing, too.
