MocOlympics round 2: Annie Corder vs. Riccardo Zangelmi
The category is Utopian Mircoscale - Build an ideal community or society in a scale smaller than minifigure.
About this creation
The link to the MocOlympics homepage .

The link to My opponent's entry.



Utopia is the perfect society, and to be perfect it has to be self sustainable. Providing its own water, power and food


The solar panels transfer the energy to the power generators, which then spreads the electricity through the city.


The water, which is suctioned from the ocean, is then filtered and stored in water pumps.


The food is grown in the bio-dome.






This is the delivery truck that hands out food to the citizens in equal amounts.









I really hope you enjoyed this! Best of luck to my opponent! :)

Wow! Simply stunning work! Utopian/dystopian style fiction is one of my favorite genres in literature, but I never thought the theme could be so well-represented in LEGO! A most excellent creation all around!

Quoting The Colonel . To the guy about the huge walls: No it doesn't need walls. This place uses a force shield around it! Ever seen Stargate: Atlantis? The city/ship has a protective shield incase of bad weather. @ Annie: This is beautiful Annie! I have also made a beautiful MOC myself. It's my latest one. Maleficus Von Muhdaka. Go check him out because it's my best work in bionicle yet!
Yes! It has a force sheild! Hahaha. :) Thank you. :)

Quoting Hrvoje Hedžet But I feel the lack of huge walls disturbing.It has to be protected from tsunamis, huricanes etc, right? Nice job, and congratulations on passing to the third round. :D
Hhmmmm..... Good point. I hadn't thought of that. Thanks! :)

Very nice. The concept of 'Utopia', such as government control, is very disturbing and very dystopian. You'll see how they relate. The content of the text, especially 'food is handed out in equal amounts', was very creepy and disturbing - having recently read 1984, I became quite intimidated! But don't think I'm not impressed. The build is very nice!

Quoting Cody G I'm done with my entry, but I must admit that I'm reluctant to post until you do, just to be sure I built well enough. If you're finished, I propose that we both post on the same day. I'm very curious to see what you came up with! :)
Mine probably won't be done untill Friday. But if you don't mind waiting to post your's till then, that's fine with me. :) Can't wait to see your entry!

WOW! This is just great. It is by far (as far as I can remember) the best mini scale lego creation I have ever seen on this site. What's really amazing about it is the fact that you were able to add small details that were interesting despite their limited size (e. g. the delivery truck). The solar panels are genus too. I wish that my sister built more... You brother is so lucky. Great work!

Quoting Riccardo Zangelmi Thanks Annie, it was very interesting to compete against you. Our category (Utopian Microscale) put me in difficulty. Because I have not ever built in microscale, and I do not like the microscale. However, this is a race, and you did a good job. Keep it up, do not stop doing Lego, you're good, and over time will improve even more. I will follow your path in Mocpages. Thanks Bye
Thank you so much Riccardo! :)

Quoting Ian Spacek Well it looks like you'll be moving on to Round3! While I'm a big fan of Riccardo's creations and am disappointed that he won't be continuing, I simply had to comment on the excellence of this micro! Very well done! You and he both took different approaches and did wonderful jobs. I really like the two main structures here, and the solar panels are awesome as well. Great work! And good luck in the future contests (it seems the Corder's are making a good name for themselves on the pages).
Thanks so much Ian! :D

Quoting Mark Kelso Wow - nicely done! As the others have mentioned, some excellent parts usage throughout. But what really strikes me is the symmetrical circular composition. The circle is an archetypal symbol of divinity, infinity, and perfection. The perfect choice for a utopian psychology. Not that it matters at this point (as you only need two), but you have my vote as well. Great work.
Thank you so much! I look forward to round three! :)

Wow Annie this incredible! Great great work! You have more than a fighting chance with this. @Dues: Why is it 99% of comments you make have a negative implication towards someone or something about the build? You are not God and everyone has a right to their own taste regardless of your own. Your english is great, your personal interaction skills are somewhat lacking. Time to wonder what it would be like if everyone directed your comments at you. Sorry about that Annie, you and I and many others know Ru is an excellent builder, everyone does the best they can with the resources given to them! Your build is awesome! ~Thoy
