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!
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.
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
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!
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!
