In which our hero attempts to coin the word "hypermonkey".
About this creation
As suggested here, I've gone and made a space bank.
I've also gone and decided I'm not going to become a spacer anytime soon. I just can't fill a wall. Space-y walls can't just be blank, flat, solid-color monoliths; they need something to make them sci-fi-ier, and I can't really figure out what that something should be without copying someone else's design. Greebles just aren't my specialty, and their absence here is a bit of a flaw, in my opinion.
That said, I did get to make some weird characters, so that was fun. I never thought I'd use the Mr. Krabs head again.
Clerical error this, insufficient that. Whatever the problem was this time, they'd better hurry; the Mir was double-parked.
Statue of Deacon the Immune: first man to peel an orange in space.
Secret vault under the statue of Old Man Genghis, who lost his hand in the Spice Wars or to a honey badger, depending on who you ask.
It would be the perfect crime. His camouflage was a success, his position couldn't be better. All he had to do now was wait.
Even as special counsel, Nathan the Hypermonkey still had time for an afternoon banana.
It was a thankless job, yes, but CoffeeBot knew eventually he'd rise through the ranks. Besides, it beat UrinalBot.
The rock monsters' home insurance didn't cover landslides. The president bit his tongue to keep from giggling.
No one impersonates veterans in this bank and gets away with it.
Its good to see, regardless of race, that a good clean suit is still the predominate choice in male fashion. The build is great; I spent a long time appreciating all the details (dig the safety deposit boxes and upper catwalk the most). However, where lighting is usually your strength, I can't think of a single bank I've been to that was so dimly lit. Just not sure if it works in this particular dio.
Great stuff! Some funny writing and the overall build is fantastic. I think I saw Mr. Bones in there trying to get a loan...I wouldn't trust that guy.~H
I like it

Great work Alex. Lots of good detail here and I think you managed to avoid the 'Large Grey Monolithic Wall' quite well. It's got just enough of a sci-fi feel without being totally over the top and coming off looking like a hangar for a bunch of starfighters. I also like the individual captions/backstories on the figs. Excellent add.
Crime 1: Brilliant. Just wait 'til it closes!
Crime 2: That sucker. He didn't even blend into the crowd.
Rock Monster Scene: Lol. Don't they live underground? Just live in a meteori-- ohhhhh. Right, they fall onto the Moon or something.
Picture with Pringles: I seriously need to have them again.
Love the integration of all the different minifigs, which the context of this MOC allows -- great idea! All the details really bring it to life, especially when framed with the content of your narration (great job w/ that too btw). Nice photography to top it all. Well done all around!!! Thanks for sharing.
