About this creation
Every now and then it all somehow comes together. This little vig is a great example of those fleeting moments, and I'm gonna have to just straight up say, contest or no, that I'm pretty damn proud of this one! Let's have a look and I'll point out the cool stuff for anyone interested in trying these techniques...







For starters, I thought the use of the dolly elements was a kind of fun use of parts, and I found that they fit over a 2 stud width with a good bit of clutch. I also found, for the lamp, that a rubber band can create a lot of grip when used to fill space between parts that don't fit normally. That's how I managed to secure the hook in the minifig head. Just wrap a rubber band around the straight end of the hook piece, and twist it down into the head element. It holds nicely.




I was also really happy with the rice paper window effect that I managed to achieve with use of the LEGO string element. That was nothing more than the gaps between the 1 x 1 tiles being filled with the string part, secured in back by plates. But, of course, what I'm diggin' the most...




...is the high side-kick from our hero here. No gluing, no cutting, just plain ol' LEGO stickers (white ones so they don't show against the minifig's gi). A tied rubber band finishes out the uniform to make the belt, and walah, action amok!




Ya know, I've studied martial arts for years, but still haven't quite mastered the technique of kicking some fool so hard that he splits in half...oh well, something to strive for, right?

The paper wall and the lantern do it for me. I did see a black belt substituting for the sensei one day accidentally kick a large window out. Annoying really, it cost our club a couple of grand to replace the window.

Those effects are simply beutiful, and I must say I laughed at how this sparked an argument with purists on TBB despite being %100 LEGO... P.S The C.O.P and U.N.E are having a MOC-off (again...) and we were wondering if you'd be willing to judge for us.

Hello again Mr. Kelso. I'm sure you're still recovering from the past little competition you so kindly judged for our rag-tag group of FOLs, but the thing is, I've been signed up in another competition and it needs a judge..... I think you can see where I'm going here. We are fully prepared to go begging elsewhere if you decline though.

Wow! I've never seen any of these techniques used before, anywhere. You used some really creative ideas in this, and my favorite is definitely the dolly usage. You are definitely the first one to use that idea (but I haven't seen everything.) Anyways, keep up the creativity and keep those bricks building!

i just had a thought: "WHY arn't you one of my favorite builders yet?" i have seen lot's of your mocs and they are really really good, but for some reason i havn't added you to my favorite builders yet. so consider this moc the one that tipped the scales. i love the interesting use of parts, such as the red thingys (i don't remember what they're called) and the kicking minifig, and the net/string for the wall. really cool looking moc.

Quoting Lee Jones I love this moc Mark, and you know my feelings for you are only superseded by my feelings for ewes, but this looks to be about 10.5 studs of overhang. Can you please do me a favour? Can you post another pic of this moc with a 2x4 plates length wise on either side of the moc (so the moc becomes a total of 16-studs wide), then take an overhead shot so I can measure please. The overhang is in contention, and it does look like it breaches the rule by about 1/2 a stud. Thanks man. Lee.
Actually, I think it breaches the rule by MORE than a 1/2 a stud. I've dismantled it already, but I can see in the pic what you're referring to. Looks like a big fat DQ for this one. Too bad, one of my best vigs ever. But I missed seeing that, and rules are rules.

Quoting Hans Dendauw Looks to me like it's only a one stud overhang on either side, but maybe I'm seeing it wrong. My question, the two wedges on the legs, in the groin area, they are connected with a sticker? However you did it, it looks magnificent! You should work in the small scale more often, your fans appreciate the frequency in which you post.~H
I corrected the overhang on the top. For the legs, yes...just a white and transparent sticker from an Exo set did the trick. And yeah, I should probably do smaller stuff, but the SHIPs and big dios are where my heart lies with the hobby. Anyway, thanks for the good words!
