About this creation
Team LOVEMUFFIN's entry for the 2010 MocAthalon in the "Atlantis" category.



An advanced civilization. Peace, happiness and joy were all that it's people knew.







But legend tells of how this entire continent sank below the sea in a single day and night.







How could this have happened is the question that scholars have debated since Plato first told the tale.







Now this tale can finally be told. Shown in the final moments before it's destruction...







The final fate of the lost city of Atlantis.






Fourth Wall Commentary: Ever since I saw that Atlantis was one of the categories, I knew that I wanted to go the "other" way and make my entry Atlantis BEFORE it sank. I was about half way done with my microsclae build of the city when I saw Kevin's amazing entry. Well... scratch my plans. Time to rethink. Let's take it from microscale to minifig scale and place it mere moments before the destruction of this fabled land. Alright, time to get on to the next category.

Till next time true believers!

I love the Atlantis temple most of all, it has some very unique designs. The female minifigures use the Admiral's Duaghter torso, and the male minifigures use Luke Skywalker's torso, which is a good choice.

Very nice design! Hmm well I see two possibilities: either dive under the wave as it comes over or climb to the top of the Temple. Either way I think you really nailed it on the temple design! Great job!

The water effects are excellent, as is the small temple. It all has a very idyllic, happy world feel, except for the wave. I just wish you had done more buildings or perhaps some futile, final act of altruism. Still, very nice.

I have to echo Kelso's comments; the wave is cool as but I love the temple: it's bold and austere, just like an ancient temple should look. If it's too detailed it looks gothic or baroque, not ancient enough, imo. Brilliant stuff mate!

Geez...I go away for a few weeks and look what happens to this place! This is a great build Mr. Phipson! I love the design of the wave (reminds me of the 8-bit Trip video) and the temple looks smashing. As for the idea...well...I would expect nothing less from the likes of you. Great job on taking the category a whole different direction.

Nive try Phipps. Too bad we all knoe that it was Atlantis that sunk, not the sea to flood it. That tsunami is out of place. 1 point. And of course you already guessed I was kidding, because you are expecting to get at least 4 poits for this, with that wave and all... and in fact it's exactly what you'll get. 4 points. Great MOC. Even if it could have used some more detailing, its peculiar minimalist style does not suffer much from the lack of it.

Excellent job mr. Phipson, you gave us a look how new Lego Atlantis theme began. I very like use of transpandent and blue bricks for this amazing wave - it looks very realistic. Palace looks pretty good and mini-figures have right clothes. Last thing is that you made one of the best Atlantis MOCs without any LEGO Atlantis set. Perfect made entry for Atlantis category, good luck mr. Phipson.

Dang clever idea on this one man - right out of left field. Love the wave and the building; however, I do have to agree with some of the comments about the water being a bit flat in front of the wave (mind you, it does give the effect of the 'calm before the storm'); the beach could have used a little more like a crab or some beach grass. And the building could have used some more details to take it up that notch. But dude, you are really coming into your own here, and your building skills are growing by leaps and bounds. They might even catch up to your story telling one day. Certainly worth four (4) points with those extra somethings just (and I mean just) keeping you out of the five range. Lee.

Nice scene. Hope some of those belles survived. Cute little temple. see ya. garth
  March 2, 2010
I think YOU, being the well-respected builder you are could have done better. The ocean in fron of the wave is tooo flat, the ocean is never flat. The beach looks short and deprived of attention, and the temple is a tad too monochromoatic, It gets hard to tell the details apart. (Sorry for the rant, but I do believe it isn't your best. Great idea, though)

OH YEAH. This is how this category is done for those who do not know. I figured that you'd be able to pull that wave off pretty good, but this is fantastic. Too many cool details to discuss right now, so I'll leave it with a "GREAT work."

Nice, on-the-fly changes lead to a terrific MOC. The wave is great and the shocking white of the building sure makes it pop. Nice job, now back to work!~H

This is NOT how it happened at all. One day Leviathius, the largest woman in Atlantis, did a triple summersault off the high dive and . . . oh, right. It was a wave, wasn't it? Love that temple -- the roof is perfect (although I'm shocked you have any white at all at this point) and the wave looks great. Of course, seeing the dudes about to get the saltwater slap is what really draws me to this MOC.

It's a clean build with nice details and a good story. You even built the temple in white, so that gets my attention. I would need to see a few more details on the temple to earn the final point. 4 points for thinking outside the box.

The overall powerful feel and look of the wave was very well done, and the way it transitions from blue to transparent pieces is really cool too! The clean, new looking building was of course a good touch too, it would have been rather boring without it. Marvelous job! 5 oudda 5!

Cons : the beach is a bit basic. Pros : everything else ! The wave shot is awesome and so is the temple and the figs. Excellent idea and great MOC !
