MocOlympics Round 2 Shannon Ocean vs Roger Brickjet
Yellow Bracket. Category: "Sherwood Forest - What happens in the forest, stays in the forest... What did Robin and his band of merry men get up to in between adventures?"
About this creation
My illustrious opponent, Roger Brickjet.

MocOlympics home page.

Ahh, you know you're in the MocOlympics when you get a bizarre category am I right people?! Well, what exactly DID Robin and the rest of the drunkards get up to in Sherwood forest on their days off? I guess the same thing the rest off us do-BLOODY CHORES!


Marion to Robin: "You needn't think you're getting back up here until it's ALL done!"
Robin: "Bleedin' sod...!"

Mowing the lawn was a great way to sidestep the problem of only having one Forestman; rather than having to show the whole group doing something I could allude to it by showing one guy doing something representative. (My first idea was to show them "enjoying" a day at a "lovely" English beach: rain, cold weather and sharp rocks!)

I had to fill the rear of the moc in with brown bricks to close the gaps.

First draft with the ladder reaching the ground.

PS: I wonder if it ever occured to Prince John to burn down Sherwood forest. I guess not.

I'd have had a tough time calling this one Shanno, you and Roger both gave me good belly laughs. That is why I am a cowardly competitor and not a judge. Good job mate, sorry to see you out.

Ohhhh tough call. I really thought yours was hilarious, but that may be because I'm a married man and know the pains Robin goes through to keep the wife happy. LMAO Good job mate!

Dude, this was a GREAT entry! ShannO, you know I love you mate but, my vote has to go with Roger on this one. It was a really tough call but I think he just edged you out a bit here. Feel free to kick me in the junk next time you make it to BW. ~ Chris.

Dave found a hard word to that. But true, the trunk is not inspired enough for me. More like a 2x4 brick somehow. Its there, thats it. More emphasis! hot heart brave soul ;-) Never mind, I do not want to insult /ashame /diss you. Just some advice meant positively.

Shan, for me this is a tough decision. Both entries in this category are original and hilarious, both builders seem to be a little bit out of their comfort zone. Using minifig legs to build a branch is as unusual as it is clever. But it's not the branches, it's the trunk that disturbes me. It's a huge part of your vig and it looks like it doesn't belong there (from its design). I'm sorry, my vote goes to your opponent.

Sproule! The tree limbs are my absolute favorite part here. I love the way you defy common usage and find innovative ways to create visual interest. Good luck brudda!

For whatever reason the minifig face on the main pic cracks me up. I also enjoyed the wedging of tiles into the side of the tree for steps: simple but effective.

Very well done, The tree composition is good and the concept is hilarious. I know this must have been challenging with limited pieces to use, but you did a great job.

Excellent way to work around not having enough forestmen OR enough brown. Very funny, and a solid build overall. The platform worked out great. Good luck to you and your opponent (grumble, grumble, grumble, this should have been my category, grumble, grumble, snort).

the tree is kinda flimsy/thin looking but other then that it's awesome! since I'm the middle child my mom won't let me mow the lawn. I know it's hard work but I NEED THE MONEY! (to blow on more LEGO)

Very good! I really like the big tree esp considering you don't have much brown etc. I've recently done a BL order to make sure I've got something in the event of me getting a category like this. I bet you would have preferred my category ;)

Solid build Shannon. Easy to tell that you were out of your comfort zone here, but a solid build and an excellent idea. Best of luck!
  September 26, 2011
Haha! Man, that's great! Really lovely work! And the lighting effect is a really nice touch! Now I have a problem...should I continue with my entry or should I rethink it... My idea is not similar (though is does have a "platform" too) but the tree trunk certainly is...it was the only way I could think of doing it for us brown-impaired :) And I realized that I don't have a single Forestman nor silly hat! But I'm hoping the peasants hood will work too :) EDIT: Oh, and good luck with the judges!
