An entry for "The Mob Rules" contest by Shannon Young. Round 5, Group "The Magnificent Seven", Category, "There can be only one."
About this creation
Well, here we are, at the intersection of Destiny and The Mob Rules! With the four corners each representing a certain part of the Lego community, they all collide for a chance to win the Mob Rules contest! But no matter how hard each competitor struggles and fights, there can only be one.
The MOC does not represent the 7 Current Mob Rulers, but more like the contest, other contests, and the community as a whole. Make sure you read the "special note" though.
The Krazy Kool KFOL Klubhouse (TKKKK)
First we have The Krazy Kool KFOL (Kid Fan of Lego) Klubhouse (TKKKK), made up of 14 different colors!
Still building in rainbow mode, most KFOLs stick together and usually don't fight amongst themselves. Having the least probability at winning, they still grit their teeth and fight to the end...!...most of the time...!
Here we see the entrance side of the TKKKK.
And the other side.
A Clonie outside holds up a McDonald's Happy Meal cup to a woman walking by and says, "Spare change for army building mam? Spare change?"
The woman shrieks and runs away saying, "Build some MOCs first, you creep!"
Inside the first floor we see a small kitchen with the KFOL chef serving up dishes.
The Kiddies are equipped with mustard, ketchup, a sink, a stove, and some cabinets!
One KFOL chows down on a fresh pizza.
On the second floor, a constant battle goes on.
The KFOLs are constantly opening fire on AFOLs! Although their weapons do virtually nothing, they keep on with their barrage!
With stockpiled weapons and other "useful" items, One gangster-wanna-be-suburban-white-kid-who-thinks-he's-all-that takes cover.
Clonecommander238049856 talks to the gunner getting ready to switch positions.
The gunner/military fanboy.
Atop the lookout post, a lone KFOL looks out for anymore attacks.
TFOL Empty Warehouse
Second, we have the TFOL Empty Warehouse, made up of simple designs and one color!
I choose a warehouse because it's a great place for some 1 on 1 style (Or 2 on 1 style) fighting!
Belonging to no particular person, TFOLs fight amongst themselves a lot more than KFOLs, but occasionally do work together.
On the first floor, Ethan M. and I hide behind a flipped over table and open fire at an oncoming TFOL. From a previous attacker, machine gun bullets ripped through the wall behind us leaving many holes.
Cool perspective. Ethan holds a sniper rifle and I wield a iron bar and a pistol.
Another cool perspective.
On the second floor we see LegoLord . and a random TFOL are teaming up on a clonie TFOL.
Lastly, we have the roof. I would have done at least something, but I ran out of time. :(
AFOL Building/Office Building/Skyscraper
Thirdly, we have the AFOL, Building/Office Building/Skyscraper! Home of awesome techniques and vast quantities of brick!
Although everyman is for himself, AFOLs get along fine with each other most of the time.
Jason Corlett, a former TFOl turned AFOL proudly walks into the building for the first time.
The first floor is the main lobby/receptionist's office.
The second floor has Wes Pitter shooting down on the TKKKK while MOC Uploader 3000 posts his latest masterpiece.
(I choose to represent Wes Pitter like this because his avatar is what I believe to be his child with Exo-force-like hair and black overalls. Blue overalls were used because I unfortunately do not have black. :( Forgive me if I am utterly wrong. )
On the third floor we have the AFOL High Counsel discussing prevalent issues such as, the gray color change, fleshie colored minifigure discrimination, pink Kingdoms torsos, and the quality of Collectible Minifigures. (Lee Jones and Chris Phipson seen above)
On the fourth floor we have the secret jacuzzi where a AFOL relaxes after a long day's build.
The roof with an antenna on top.
Dropout's Empty Parking Lot
we have lame dropouts, who chickened out in the first round!
I choose to represent dropouts with an, old, empty parking lot. Meaning there's nothing on the inside except for some empty promises!
The parking sign on the side of the sidewalk.
The entrance gate.
It does infact, move up and down with two hinges.
The parking lot is barren except for the weeds and the skeleton.
But no matter how hard you fight, no matter how hard you try,
No matter where you come from, or who you are,
It is manifest destiny: There can only be ONE!!!
The views of different ages of the Lego Builders are merely stereotypical and are not scientifically proven. Phrases such as: "Although everyman is for himself, AFOLs get along fine with each other most of the time." or "Second, we have the TFOL Empty Warehouse, made up of simple designs and one color!" and many others like them are not 100% true %99.9 of the time. You know the truth and so do I. Remember, just being stereotypical.
If your sig figgy or a representation of yourself used in this MOC, it has no real translation to your actually actions or appearances and are only for the purposes to achieve minifig action in the MOC. Such as the appearance of Wes Pitter, LegoLord, Ethan M., Jason Corlett, Lee Jones, and Shannon Young are not approved by such builders. If you were offended and/or hurt, that's your problem. :P
Try not to take it too seriously.
If you're happy and you no it clap your hands. :)
Wait a minute...how did I get this far in the contest? I didn't expect to get this far at all! I'd like to thank everyone who's appreciated my creations enough for me to get this far. It means a lot. But! It's not over yet!
Anyway, If you're following the Solomon's Temple Journal updates you'll notice that there is 1 left! I've been especially busy this past week and I've been involved with another, different, contest so those two are sucking up my time as well as what's been going on lately. A lot of unexpected things are going on. But! The Journal should come out fairly soon, so look around for it.
If you're a WNA fan, I'm sad to say that I'm not sure what's going on right now. It's not that I hate the series, I'm just doing other stuff and I'm not that passionate anymore. I'm involved in other things and it's hit the backburner so to speak. I'm not going to promise that one will be coming out a certain week and I'm not quite sure when another will come out, but don't loose hope!
I definitely want to finish it...just...sometime when I get excited about it again. Which will hopefully be soon. ;)
If you would like to, please comment, rate, add me as your favorite builder, or check out my other creations. Constructive criticism is always welcome!
I am a kfol and build nothing like that and, usually would build like an afol. but as i understand its just metaphoricly speaking. good job with the creation! Oh and I love the parking lot of quitters!
Simple, nearly monochromatic desings that work. That actually perfectly describes my work, as well as my view on many things (simple but it works), but I digress. I really like your take on the category, I also feel you've captured the MOCpages stereotypes quite well (Flickr stereotypes are s bit diferent). I'm not sure however on the dropout section, but I'm not sure what could replace it.
Definatly another very creative entry, Mr. McCoy. Ive toyed with the idea of recreating MOCpages into an actual world, and this is a really good way to pull it off. Great design work here.
(P.S. Still Luc here, I just had to get a new account to hide from relatives... cheers.)
You know, when you think about it, this is quite a difficult idea to convey. Still, your four-corned intersection design captures the essence of each cohort pretty well I feel, and the write-up was entertaining enough to see through to the end. Good job!
Well Casey you have captured my vote I must say. The overall creativity of this is hilarious! All 3 of the buildings were absolutely outrageous. I would have liked seeing more TFOLs with names but naturally it is hard to find the correct sig for the TFOL. I LOVE the AFOL building. I giggled on every level. Awesome job here and best of luck!
Ha! I'd never considering using my son as my sig-fig, but why not? I don't have an official one yet, but it may be time. As for your MOC, I usually do not enjoy direct symbolism, but today, it worked for me. You did a humorous job dilineating between the different stereotypes - it had me laughing! Your building techniques were solid, and went perfectly with your write-up. Nice job.
