MocOlympics round 3 Cody G vs. Annie Corder
Warning! This MOC contains drug-related content. I don't think it quite deserves a PG warning (we'll see if the mods agree) because the MOC discourages drug use, but proceed at your own discretion.
About this creation
My category: I Feel The Need-The Need For Speed!
My opponent: Annie Corder
That contest: 2011 MocOlympics

Jim was a good kid.

He went to college.

He had lots of friends.

He may have partied a bit...

And sometimes with the wrong crowd...

But he would never do anything stupid.

He would never hang around dark alleys...

Or pay too much for a product.













Jim WAS a good kid. He had plans for himself. Ambitious plans.

He never thought he would trade them away for some pills.












What did you expect, that I build a car or something? Clearly you haven't seen every other contest entry that I've built where the rules were vague. This was a challenging build for me, I don't specialize in city MOCs, but I think I really nailed this one. I think the hardest part was coming up with enough minifigs that looked like college students. My collection lacks a bit young adult-type torsos, unfortunately. Despite that, I think the party scene turned out very well. Hopefully the judges agree. Thanks to everyone who has supported me in this fantastic tournament, and thanks to the judges for making it all possible. Thanks for viewing, rate and comment, and stay off drugs, kids!

I can not believe that I haven't commented on this before! This is truly impressive, the "Bad part of town" feeling, the short but powerful back-story, great stuff!

Quoting Tom Simon Seems like you could add city MOCs to your regular themes. This is quite fine.
Thanks, Tom! I usually don't build city MOCs, but every once in a while they're a fun thing to do.

Lovely details, especially that locked-up bike. This reminds me of Limitless.

A sad, yet educational story of how drugs can ruin a person's life. Excellent build all around with the different locations, I'm sorry to hear you lost the contest however. ~Ryan

...Hi Cody. Sorry you didn't make it through either :(. I think we both went up against two very creative and talented builders. Let's get building :).

A unique take on the phrase, Cody. My vote went to Annie, however. Only by a slim margin. I felt like she also had a good concept, but just squeaked by ya on build quality. This is a very nice MOC, though, and a great way to finish out your time in the competition. Not a win...but still, nicely done!

Cody, I really appreciate the risk you took with subject matter in this build. However, in the end, my vote went to your opponent for the cohesiveness of her build. Thank you for sharing your take on the category. ~Dave

This is a tough one...I like how you built the whole thing together, took me a minute to figure that out. Poor wastoid Jimmy, too. You've got some great detailing throughout, but it's not quite enough to beat the size and scope of Annie's build. Sorry, Dude...Good luck with the other judges

Nice job. :) Good message too, I think you should have tiled the floor in the party building though.

Good way to be down on drugs. Need as many messages like that as possible! Nice touch with the graffiti, and the discarded paint can. Great work on those little details! Good luck! -Ultra

Quoting Cedekane . Cody the build is really good, you really caught my attention with the storytelling aspect. It's very to the point, and quite a point that is. I respect that.
Thanks, Ced!

Quoting Nick Nitro Brick may I aks how this is speed realated? but pretty cool anyway! good luck with your judges. (blarg blarg?)
Speed is a type of hard drug, which is extremely dangerous and addicting.

Quoting Master Shifu Leo J Classic chained-up bicycle with missing wheels; a common sight in college campuses! Great take on the category. Super cool build! Good luck!
Thanks! The wheel-less bicycle and graffiti were inspired by one of Hans' builds.

Great take on the category. Really well built. It has some wonderful details, like the spray can and the bin in the alley to name just a couple. The face you used when he is lying on the bench is perfect. Best of luck!

I had this same idea for my entry in the MIT, (I have the same category as you) But I figured it's not quite what the judges will be looking for. But good luck with your judges. :)

Wow, very detailed! The backstory is great, at almost made me laugh when I saw Jim's face when hie lays on the bench! I also like the cool backyard of the house, with those shady guys, the broken window and the graffiti! In this are some very excellent ideas, fantastic work!
