Lego Guillotine
I know this can be an edgy subject and a lot of people either overdo or make light of death. I originally built this for the great ouch contest, but I accidentally changed a setting on my computer that wouldn't let me sign in. So I am posing it now. There is no added blood, no heart-rentching stories, but the facts alone are enough. I hope I've done this right. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!
About this creation


"Gulp..."



The top of the tower. It was flimsy at first (because I used wedging at the base), but I then added some simple stabilizers.



The pulley of death.



The blade fits perfectly between the two wedged plates.



In order for the head to actually come off, you have to put the head on the end of the neck.





The evil revolutionary.



The victim.

I hope I didn't over-do this. I have seen many think this is funny and make big, cheesy letters written in blood on main photo. I've tried to keep it as serious as possible without over-emotionallizing it.

<<<< Quoting Blake Baer :---:
Death is NEVER entertainment. If you think it is, then die, come back to life and tell me if it was fun. >>>>

Thanks!

P.S. It really does chop the head off. I would put a video on, but I don't have a Youtube account.

Quoting Paul Romano A very nicely put together MOC, with an even more important message. I recently read "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens, and the way he protrayed all the violence was very sad. You've captured that feeling very realistically. Bravo!
Thank you! I'm glad I've portrayed that.

Quoting A New Generation of Star wars Really cool! Maybe use a grey piece instead of a brown for the knife-thing? Other than that, really good!
Actually, the blade was bley. I tried to use chrome but didn't have enough pieces.

Very nice, yet a little over-detailed, almost greebled. IT would be better in a post-apocalyptic vignette.

Ha ha ha! Awesome (yet kind of disturbing) Max! I talked to the people in the great ouch contest and they are going to do another one sometime so that you can add this!

PERFECT. I have to say you hit just the spot between over seriousness and cheesiness

As a former judge of the Great Ouch Contest, I have to say, it's a pity you couldn't have posted this a few weeks sooner! Really nice build.

I'm glad your login problem was a mere computer setting and nothing more. Very nice job on this, Max, and sadly, I can attest to the "swish - slice" description that your cousin gave this morbidly factual creation. I have to say though... It was more like "swish - clunk." But enough of this grossness, I say! Very well done, again, and may your own creativity not haunt you in your dreams.

Quoting Blake Baer Hey Max! Really neat scene you have here. A lot of your creations are really good. Thank you for quoting me! I am still somewhat new to the community to any publicity is a welcome addition. Thanks!
No problem! I loved your saying! It's defiantly "quote worthy."
