The Enterprisers team take on the theme of Vignette in the 2010 MOCathalon.
About this creation
Do you fully understand the realities destined if Velociraptors were ever let loose from some hidden island amusement park? If you don't, I must inform you of my worry for your safety! We should all be quite aware of Velociraptors and their potential danger for humanity. Taking certain precautions is one such way, to show Velociraptors that we 'mean business' and respect this wondrous animal for it's very treacherous behavior.


Alright, Kid-o-s, back-story time!
Martin Fickleton was just another worker on the island who helped wherever an extra hand was needed. And when a pack of Velociraptors escaped from their transporting cage, he was one of the first men picked for the group that was sent out to capture the animals and return them to their safe paddocks. As the group moved deeper into the island's rain forest, they were pounced on, by the pack of deadly and hungry Velociraptors. Poor Martin was separated from the other hunters in the confusion that the hunting group created as they attempted to hold off the pack with their issued SPAS-12 shotguns. While trying to find his comrades, Martin found himself trapped between a rock wall and a charging Velociraptor. In desperation, Martin grasped at the foliage, that seemed to grow from the cliff's face, and started to climb in the direction of safety. But unknown to him, Velociraptors can climb, too.
For sake of awesomeness, I'll go ‘Goldman’ on you and say that you control the action in this Vignette… because you do.


I had to make sure, continually, that I wasn't breaking ANY rules while constucting this. Because of the way I built it, no foliage, whatsoever, could dangle over the edges of the cliff piece, nor could the palm/fern leaves at the top of the cliff, dangle to widely. I also made sure my Velociraptor's tail didn't flow to far off of the base. It's less than a stud away from the base (Within Acceptable Parameters) but I had to change it numerous times.


Yep, I'm running off on a Velociraptor kick. Can you tell?


I'm actually a fan of the entire Jurassic Park story (Book and Motion Picture) so it was just a matter of time, before I built something inspired by the theme.


Poor guy, scared to death and ready to hurl! He obviously lost his SPAS-12 back when he was separated...


I NEEDED to use my Machete, SOMETIME! Finally I got a chance... even though the judges will probably drop a point for me going non-purist. If you care that much, keep your point!


I would have liked to include two figs, but the rules stated; "No more than two characters." So I figured my brick built Velociraptor would be considered one 'Character'.


Back to the subject of SPAS-12s, I was disapointed that in the film Robert Muldoon doesn't get the rocket launcher he used in the book. He got a SPAS-12, instead. Meh. That wasn't as bad as the fact that he DIED in the motion picture, and survived in the book. That was somewhat anger prevoking...

Anyway, here are some more pictures of the Velociraptor, because like in the film and book, he's practically the star of the show.




"I'm about to be eaten alive by an animal who's name I can't even pronounce! Now that's frightening!"

I just got done (re)watching the JP trilogy and this vig is a great tribute to the story. I really like the vertical aspect of it! Oh, and is it just me, or does the raptor here look a bit like the Xenomorph from "Alien"? I think Martin is in for a rough time...

Where to start? Great job on the vig, but that raptor has to be the best part of the whole show! Perfect job on him, the tail was brilliant! Keep it up!

Awesome! I love the raptor! Was it really a SPAS in the movie? Or did you just see the pump-action shotgun and pull that name from MW2? Just wondering... The build is great.

Quoting Justin Saber-Scorpion Stebbins and Jordan 'Lil Monsta' Williams
Lolz... And I thought I rambled on! You two are going off about 'Beast Wars'! (I wonder if Netflix has any of those series on DVD... I haven't watched that show in years.)
Quoting Blade Bat Cool. I'm reading Jurasic Park right now.

The raptor is a neat design, but not very organic looking. But I still like it because it reminds me of the Transmetal Dinobot from Beast Wars. God I loved that show as a kid... Oh, and nice creation!

Clever design, way to maximize the size by going vertical. Four (4) points. Lee.

Nice job going vertical on the vignette with that cliff face. Sure, the velociraptor could be refined, but regardless of its looks it's still nothing I'd want chasing me.

i loved the book and the movies :D great job on the raptor! it's really good, and i like the climbing the cliff idea, it's way cooler than if he was just being chased down along a flat surface. also the book was way more intense casue there were actually WAY more raptors than they thought and they got to hunt the t-rex with a rocket launcher (i think it was a rocket launcher, maybe it wasn't) the book was better than the movie (they usually are :D )

Quoting Horatius . ... I'm a fan of the book and movie, and liked Muldoon as well. But even worse than killing him off in the movie, they turned Gennaro into Regis and made him wimpy and greedy. And then dead. But still, it was a good movie...
Hey, your rambling was appreciated and 100% agreed with! Throughout the film I continued saying "That's not how it's supposed to go!" ... but I concur, it WAS still a good motion picture. Thanks for the comment.

Ah! How points may fall victims to concept! Man, if you had called this "Attack of the Mechacyraptor" it would have been a five from me (and I suspect from Dave too). Great vig, 4 well deserved points for you.

Yup, you followed all the rules perfectly. I even love your teaser picture! The only thing holding it back was the actual velociraptor design (I wouldn't have known what it was if you didn't tell me). Still, well worth 4 points.

I like the build, and the idea of a raptor chasing a hunter up a cliff. I'm a fan of the book and movie, and liked Muldoon as well. But even worse than killing him off in the movie, they turned Gennaro into Regis and made him wimpy and greedy. And then dead. But still, it was a good movie. Back to the build (pardon my rambling) I like the foliage and the tense feeling I get when I see the chase. Good job.

Very good rock formations and foliage. I like the raptor; clever use of bricks. Kudos to you.
