About this creation
Welcome at my contribution to round 2 of
MOCpages
MocOlympics MOCpages MocOlympics 2011
.

My opponent in this round is LegoLord

For our round this was the judges saying what to build:

******************************
Stonepunk: What if cavemen somehow got their hands on futuristic technology? And understood how to use it, but only their way? Robots created from stone and wood, spaceships powered by dinosaurs in wheels … Let your imagination go wild. MM(This one’s brilliant!)
******************************

May I herewith applause you judges for the theme (and for steering the entire contest. Honor and burden are twins...), it was brilliant! I took every word for granted and fully allowed my inspiration to go wild. I focus on the "What if" in junction with "futuristic". I found that my keyword to the project would be "UNKNOWN". Unknown energy, style, structure, bulding technics, unknown story and features. Keep that in mind when exploring it.

Here comes the conceptional part:

We Germans live in the kingdom of garbage separation. We want things we can understand and rely on. Thats why my first question was what kind of energy source our stonepunk caveman might have used for their whatsoever futuristic activities. The judges guiding ideas did not contribute to that aspect sufficiently. They did not use up the oil, we do that right now. After a while I knew it would be some supersmart green voodoo they invented. I thought of an zero emission - perfect job done technology.
What those cavepunks came up with was pure green VOODOO: they found a way stimulating plants to emit a form of their woven life energy. That energy transforms others plants parts in liquid time. Its not easy to follow, I know. Well, I myself dont understand it ;-) I don´t understand how microwaveovens could work.. Never mind.

Liquid time can be used for hardly anything one would like to approach.


Finally here comes my MOC into the story
Stonepunk physical society developed such a structure named "gothererock", It is, ah, a rock. Its StonePunk, you remember? For our understanding, as it is also a transportation device, we might see it as a ship too. Basicly that up to one eyes. The time liquifying process is taking place inside this huge and highly sophisticated structure. When the process is running, it will detach all beings (humans flies, just all beeings) within the structure from time using the phenomenon of being out-timed to transport the structure and its crew to virtually any point without moving it physically. It just is at the chosen destination, when the timecontinuum is enabled again by stopping gothererocks operation.
All in all a clever concept.I would like it myself...
At the moment gothererock is empty. When on use, its crowded with lots of groovin stonepunks. But as its the out of time, we won´t see them.

Time to shut up, let the rock talk.

Quoting Mark Kelso I found myself really enjoying both entries from you and your opponent - this turned out to be a fun category for me as a judge. This one gets my vote as well, if nothing more than for the sheer LUNACY of the creation and concept. Usually such a ragged looking MOC would be a bad thing, right? But here, it just works! Nice job, and congrats. See ya in round 3!
Hey Mark. Thanks for your vote too. I am pretty happy to have got all the three of you on my MOC. Building this concept and rock was extremely fun and highly challenging my mental and physical capabilities. The entire build itself was 5 days. So many solutions to be found on the way to make it work. In reality it is surprisingly big and works so well. I´m happy with how it came out. Even if it was thought a bit too big for the timeframe. I rather had used 20 but 5 days to make it close to what I originally wanted to present. After having it posted to the group, investigating and enjoying the other entries, the fear arose my entry could be too far out and just drop. Also the fact, that I twice had no minifigs involved seemed quite boisterous then. I learned, that within the unwritten rules of the scene, it comes more to presenting sceneries and noveltelling than pure brickjuggling. Lets see how to act in round 3... Next thing will be debricking gothererock. Sad somehow, would like to keep it alive... So keen on the next round. WOW. This is the first tournament I take part in and its sooooo thrilling and fun, No words for that. Btw. I am a fan of your design. Nice jobs indeed.

Quoting Dave Kaleta Mr. Bauder, I really tried to figure out what was going on, but I couldn't. Oh well. The build speaks for itself. You have my vote. ~Dave
Dear Sir, Thanks for your vote! The build speaks for itself. Cool! To be honest, the whole confusing text story came, because I wanted to build what I came up with after 4 days of trying and warping various concepts. I considered among other plans, a mid class caveman household and its appliances (funny thing, that concept was quite similar to the one Stuart used in "MOC Olympics Round 2: Stuart Delahay Vs Caleb Z" Just traveled in the far past but future. I reread the theme several times and got focused on the suggestive part (Stonepunk: What if cavemen somehow got their hands on futuristic technology? And understood how to use it, but only their way? Robots created from stone and wood, spaceships powered by dinosaurs in wheels …) and the imperative: Let your imagination go wild. And particularly the term "hands on futuristic technology" I wanted to have them found something completely unknown and on the third day ended up at building a huge rock with no right angles. With a structure you could hardly investigate on without debricking. It should come out a miracle, you know. So it headed for the rock. Mainly because I wanted to build that. I bended the theme quite a bit. I had to find a way, that makes my build conform to the rules without a doubt and also explain the absence of figs. Thats the story...

Quoting Master Shifu Leo J If this is indeed a washing machine, is this how stone-washed jeans came to be? XD ... Oh, and BTW, insane concept and build!
Thanks!. I explained the washing machine thing in my reply to Hans, if you´re interested.

Quoting Hans Dendauw NPD Did you make a small trip to Amsterdam before building this?! LOL You definitely succeeded in 'out there' thinking! I have no idea what is going on here but I can't help liking it. I've also never heard the phrase 'if _____, then I'm a washing machine, but I like that too! LMAO Congrats on the win and good luck in the next round.~H
Well, it was at least traveling to foreign countries ;-) The washing machine joke did not come over, so here explained again. What I wanted to say is: Whoever can find a right angle on that MOC is entitled to win a washing machine as his price. One of the core building principles on that MOC was avoiding any right angles.

Quoting El Barto ! Okay, I read your description twice, and I think I get it, more or less. It's an interesting take on the category, and an entirely different basis of technology, totally alien. And the structure is confusing, but impressive. You've got my vote!
Thanks for your appreciation and vote El. I´m glad.

Anybody noticed yet the big plate with the chain thing going around? Its angle to the rock can be adjusted. That greatly changes the look of gothererock in reality. And sure has got unrevealed mysteries about its operation.

Quoting Medieval Guy How does this stay together?
Its got two (or 2 and a half, or four ;-)) solid mainframes and can be carried around easily. I you don´t mind the weight. I plan to make a new creation only showing the physics when debricking it. Might be tomorrow? I´ll see.

Quoting Blake Baer I think in the long run, because his build sticks to the category a bit more he might edge you on this one. However, I am sure the judges will realize the time and effort into this impressive build!
There is that fear you might be right. But hey, we were told to let our imagination go wild. That was the imperative in here. The above "what if" part was suggestion. A close look on the theme: I was advised to go far out!

great build.....whatever it is! Your techniques were obviously very unorthodox and skillfull - hope that gives you an advantage with the judges! Good Luck!

Quoting Connor Simpson Great idea, the overall look of this is really quite cool. Good luck!
I completely share your view. Its the overall view that spices on this one. Find an right angle and win a washing machine ;-) The details I had liked to add was cut as time was an issue in that build. It took 4 days to find a concept I liked. The rest is up to your imagination. It is huge after all....

Quoting Giovanni & Lennaert Seynhaeve Man! I haven't got the foggiest of what you built, but it looks awesome! Good luck with your judges!
Thanks, thats exactly what it should look alike:UNKNOWN. What the heck is tis thing? How does it work?. Thrilling how my judges will take on that concept...
