Right, Round 2. Lets get ready to rumble.
About this creation
Firstly, lets get the annoying bit out the way.
Anthony Duune's entry can be found here.
Joe P.'s entry is around here somewhere.
And the MOColympics is right here.
Now, for the rather mediocre bit. My luck being as it is I not only ended up in a Triple Threat match, but I also got a category which, quite frankly, I resented. Originally, I was going to incorporate some manner of Flying Death Machine, but knowing my luck something like that would crop up in a later category. Anyhoo, down to business.
These first few shots are just ninety degree rotations from the Main pic, so you can appreciate the entirety of my build. Appreciate it!
Side Note: I was originally planning on putting the SNOT floor all over the little fort, but ran out of pieces. Damn my limited collection, you have foiled me once again!
A quick snap of a young boy clambering up a ladder. Why? Who knows.
A touching scene between a clone trooper and his genetically identical son. Side Note; it took me three days to get that swing technique. Whether that is good or bad is up to you to decide.
As Sig-Fig Lea and an evil genius have a nice discussion on various levels of world domination, Phipson and one of the more attractive mothers who use the park have a minor, ahem, falling out.
The aforementioned Evil Genius' daughter is obviously not happy with being second to use the slide.
A shot at the Round-about (I think that's what its called), which is my second favourite part of this MOC, if only because it looks neat.
A pic of the obligatory foliage necessary to deem this place a park. Yes, I know the category is Playground, but here in the Cotswolds they mean pretty much the same thing.
My favourite piece of this build, the slide. The reason it's my favourite is because it makes use of an illegal connection and pieces being held on by friction, my first attempts at both.
And finally the climbing frame. Ah, so many happy days spent on these things. Shame I've forgotten them due to studying.
And that's my entry. I hope I've kicked it up a bit from my Round 1 Entry. Well, we'll see soon.
Thank you for the bid of good luck. You did a nice job on your entry- I was worried that you would win- you had some nice features. I especially liked your slide design. Thank you. Keep building! -Anthony
Nice job, Lea. I love the concept of the wooden playground set. While you didn't get to finish tiling it out, It still has a more polished look than your competitor's works in this round. Those things combined - I'm giving you my vote. Good luck with the other judges, and well done!
Lea you did a great job and gave the competition a good entry to compete against. Personally I feel that Joe's is a more robust playground. However you are a very skilled builder and I look forward to seeing more from you in the future. Good luck with the judges!
Hahaha @Chris, that's exactly what I thought. It's a rather good build though. I love the roundabout thingy. But maybe with a wooden building this solid, I miss the hole some big kids burnt in it in order to make a lair out of its insides ;)
I like it

Nice one! Very neat playground all around. There's stereotypical Chris Phipson, doing what he stereotypically does. ;)
Ok, I gotta ask... how much range of motion does that swing have? I ask because I have this vision in my head of the dad pulling the kid up, up, up on the swing and letting him go... (Swing) "WEE!" SPLAT, right into the wall. HAHAHA nice work, good luck! ~ Chris.
