“Er, boss, we got a serious problem here. No, not rock monsters, how’s our public liability cover?”

Notes/ 4th Wall
No massive story from me today (I’ll save that for later rounds if I advance). I was quite surprised there were not more mole or earthworm builds to speak of on the pages. Plenty of mole-machines and giant death-worms though – what does that say about us?
I tried constructing the worms from flesh heads and they looked wrong, so tan it is. The mole is in bley so there was some contrast for his spectacles and so it wasn’t so dark in his hole. Yes, they are cartoony. I don’t do realism so well.
Thanks again to the judges for putting up their free-time to run this and also for putting their hands in their pockets for the prizes. It is greatly appreciated, and you show far more patience than I could muster.
Hello fellow Brit :) This was definately one of my favourite entries, the whole idea was superb and i'm digging the characters esp the mole and worms. Really looking forward to seeing what you can do in R2. I really want to know what the categories are NOW grrrr
Stuboy, you continue to up yourself. Even from the thumbnail I liked what I saw, so of course I was more than surprised when I opened the full page and saw the entire compilation. I'm not even going to lie, your creations have gotten to the point of making me feel giddy and excited to view them. That mole is phenominal.
At first I wasn't sure where this was going; a new take on the Birds and the Bees? Anyway, all sorts of great details in this, especially you on the mushroom-Classic! I hope others will look at this and understand the difference between being TOLD it's a MOC about Earth, (Spring or whatever) and being SHOWN what the category is. It's a somewhat subtle but very important distinction that really separates out the top builds from the rest. Congrats, and good luck in the next round!
What is it with you British guys and your perfect fairy tale storytelling skills? I always love this partly used, partly magical looking design in British movies and TV series and now I find the same level of fantastic design here on MOCpages. Bravo!

I know it's a small detail, but I really like the way you've done that door frame.
Thanks Luke, glad somebody noticed that as it was a fave bit of mine!
So much love for that mole, i'm inclined not to break him down yet! First bit of the build and it came together very quickly.
Thanks to everybody for their kind words and encouragement, i'm (slowly) trying to get round to everyone's builds to return the favour.
I know it's a small detail, but I really like the way you've done that door frame. If it wasn't against the rules, you should sooo make the mole a recurring feature throughout all your entries, no matter how tenuous his justification for being there might be, or not... good luck with the judges!
Your creativity just never ceases to amaze me; I can't wait to see you throw down this year. The one thing that comes to mind with this, in the immortal words of Austin Powers, 'Nice to mole you--meet you! Nice to meet your mole! Don't say mole. I said mole.'
'Look, just get it out of your system.'
'Mole! Bloody mole! We're not supposed to talk about the bloody mole, but there's a bloody mole winking me right in the face! I'm gonna take it, chop it up, and make some guaca-moley!' There, I feel better. Good luck, mate! ~H
cool concept i love the mole and the worms but he walker needs work i think you should make a platform that the guy stands on so he is not just hanging there but great work! mind looking at this http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/286584
I dig it! Love the tea cup and mole. This is one of those mocs that the more you look the more detail you see :). Great use of the magnifying glasses. Good luck sig - Gnome Stu. hopefully see you in round 2
