Meanwhile, in the boss' office...

"Mr. Reed, I think we both know why you're in here. When I hired you as the mailroom manager, I expected you to organize and deliver mail in a timely manner. Instead, you show up late, if at all, and when you're here you work with the lethargy of a marijuana-addicted sloth! I need efficiency in this company, and all you've given me is a headache."

"You're FIRED!"

Well, I couldn't just build the first thing that came to mind, could I?

I tried to make this office space seem very 70's. Inspiration from the movie "Anchorman".

"Do you really love the lamp or are you just saying that because you saw it?"

Ostentatiously-colored furnishings and shag carpets.

The boss gets the best view.

And finally, the minifigs.


Well, that's all, folks! It looks like there's some pretty good competition this year, but I hope that I'll at least break last year's record of getting eliminated in round 2. Wish me luck!

Gotta' love it. I'm pretty sure I saw 'Anchorman' but I just doubt it. But I do remember watching Office Space-- oops that just RANDOMLY came into my mind xD.

As I said in the other You're Fired vigs, what sets yours apart is the empathy created for the character. Plus the details of the room, love the 70's look to it. Congrats!

Quoting Dave Kaleta Cody, You matched just the right amount of extra details in the size you built. The presentation was very well done as well. I was distracted by the yellow door; didn't really seem to fit. Also, consider a few less pictures so that the viewer focuses on your concept. Thank you for sharing your take on the categories. ~Dave
Thanks for the advice, Dave! I'll be sure to keep it in mind for the next round.

There are 2 things that caught my eye in this build, that pull string switch for the lamp and that wire for the desk lamp. That is some clever parts usage my friend!

  September 15, 2011
No, I really love the lamp. And the orange carpet (my parents had some like that, without the studs) and the desk lamp. And the expressions on the figs. I really thought you were in my fave builders, but that is now remedied. Good luck!

HAHAHA! Excellent take on the theme. That desk looks rather small to hide a secretary underneath, no? Hey? What? oh...Good luck with your judges!

Quoting Deus Otiosus Mmm... I kind of expected fire type pokemon. Good MOC, but personal dissapontment. A little.
I thought about it, but the small appeal of Pokemon probably wouldn't get me past the first round. It would be like making a Toa of Fire or something of that nature.

Quoting Owl (Moving) Wait, is there something wrong with being as slow as a Marajuana-addicted sloth?
Only when your boss is anxiously awaiting his BL order.

Quoting Magmabane the Toa of Magma I love how the first commenter didn't really say anything about the MOC just simple "First!", anyways nice deatil on the office although the Chair is too blocky, but ya know, its just lego cant work with it much there.
I was going for the very square, basic look of an old 70's chair for the yellow one, with the black one being a bit more elaborate to look like a boss' chair. Thanks for the advice!

Quoting Stormbringer . Very good entry. But I'm a little cautious since this is my first MocOlympics. So my moc won't come out until the near end (I'm not taking any chances). Best of luck.
Good strategy, and good luck! :)
