MOCathalon - Team LOVEMUFFIN - category: Top Ten
About this creation
For those not familiar with the categories or rules regarding Phipson's MOCathalon, this category is called Top Ten. The idea is to come up with a MOC using a maximum of ten pieces...not as easy as it might sound! So, for what it's worth, here's my contribution...






While I came up with several variations, this seemed to be the one that functioned the best and incorporated the most elements of a common microscope. I've pointed out some of the features I was able to include with the ten piece limitations. Also based upon work done by other builders, the proportions and size should function nicely for the miniland scale.




Just a quick break down of the parts utilized, as required for the category.





This is my first entry, so let me just take a moment say thanks to all of the judges for the IMMENSE amount of work they're doing, and best of luck to all participants. And for crying out loud, people, this meant to be a good time...so have fun with it!

I wish I would of entered the contest since I would be great at this category since my lego collection is divided into three parts, sorted (I'm afraid to this part in fear it will end up unsorted when I'm done), unsorted (this is a nightmare to go looking through) and small parts I have a few tackle boxes for small things like droid arms, pipes, mini fig tool weapons and such, and all those small parts wich is what I use most. Oh great entry by the way I the how you used the tire and bionoculers.

Using our bricks to make the fantastic is easy compared to making the ordinary or real. I love your novel use of parts in executing a simple and elegant design. It is utterly unique.

Great parts usage in a stellar example of how a 10 piece is done. Now you can loan that to Phipson so he can find a certain, um, part.

Thanks to you, all of us can start the research for the cure for cancer in our own homes with just a few bucks worth of pieces. This is the invention of the century. Now answer this: was I, or was I not, being sarcastic all the time?! :)

Well first, minus one point just because you built it. Then minus another point because of the multiple colours and lack of chrome elements. Take off another point because you don't actually have a light. There are no feet and no power cord either. Now if I do all the math it leaves you with about five (5) points. Nice job man. Lee.

Kelso this is AWESOME. I'm about to get my bachelors in Biology, so I've been using these babies for years. But more than that, I was trying to think of something I could build out of Legos for my professors to remember me by, something simple. Lo and Behold.. this is perfect. Thanks for sharing

Well, Yuri kept asking me what did I want in this category and why did I keep giving such low scores. This one is pretty darn good. For me to offer a high score it has to be something that couldn't be built better with more parts AND be innovative. I think this fits both those, so 5 points. (man, I built my own 10 piece creation and was going to post it tomorrow to get the kids motivated, but you beat me too it!)

I'm disappointed you didn't post a WIP journal for this. You could have posted at least nine of them, more if you made any revisions. :) But in all seriousness, this is pretty amazing for ten pieces. Nice part usage.

Quoting Yuri Fassio I don't know how other judges may conider the leg assembly. However, they are considered to be one piece in all manuals, so to me this is a full 4. Great rendition of an unusual object within this tight limit!
Hmmm...good point on that leg assembly issue. Didn't think that might be considered three parts. We'll see what the others think.
