MIT 2011 Round 2: Heath "kik36" Flor Vs. Ian Spacek
My second round entry into the MIT 2011 competition.
About this creation
Category: "Show Me the Money!"

Mandatory Link to the group

Mandatory Link to my competitor Ian's entry.




Everything seemed to be going well in the relatively new Central Credit Union of Chicago.



At least it seemed like that from the outside. Inside four words echoed through the posh bank.......



"SHOW ME THE MONEY!"



"C'mon honey, we ain't got all day! Give me all your cash!"



Chaos flooded the bank. The gang of robbers seemingly came out of nowhere.....but the heist was planned for weeks.



Harold didn't mind....it wasn't his money, and the insurance would cover it.



Pam was waiting in the luxurious waiting area to open a new account.....she's thinking of going to Chase after this.



"Alpha 1, who broke teller 'blue eyes' bank?!"



"The dumb broad dropped the bag boss....no time to gather coins."



"Roger that.....you're a GO for crowd control".

"I'm on it!"









This is what it was really about....the gold bars. The crew knew the bank manager would be handling the goods at this time....it was all for show to bring in new customers. It seemed to work. The crew was ready to make a withdrawal.



The camera was a nuisance, but Mexico wouldn't care what they looked like behind a margarita glass.



The bank hired Chip Philson to guard the bank.....he's totally oblivious to the commotion downstairs. It seems the stained glass tulip keeps his mind off the job. Little did he know that after being fired from the bank he would be hired into the position that would lead to BLOCKOCOP!



"Ass, cash, or grass lady....I ain't got time for your attitude!"















EXTRAS:



I designed the couch from scratch and am kinda proud of it....but it didn't get much air time. LAME!



I designed my own safe, only to find out about 75% through the build that this printed disk woulda been awesome. Damn the luck.







Last shot of Chip.....blundering doofus!

Afterthoughts:

Ian is an excellent builder, and I was already expecting some stiff competition. His entry threw me for a loop though, because I was really hoping he'd go the Jerry McGuire route (the movie the quote is from). I always had a robbery in mind, and he was on the same angle. At first I thought about doing a sci-fi bank robbery with aliens.....unfortunately I'm horrible with making mini-figs so I went with a regular bank robbery.

One thing I keep hearing in these competitions is that my friends are judging and I'm going to get a pass. That's shit. It doesn't happen. Otherwise I'd be in the MOC Olympics still. I wanted Ian to feel like I stepped up strong, and not like I got a freebie. I hope he feels like it's a worthy entry against him, as I'm totally impressed with his. Win or lose I think we both came out swinging.

I used 10 lights to try and light my MOC up....and it still turned out dark in areas.....WTF?! After seeing Ian's carpet, I stepped up my game with a new floor pattern. I almost ran out of the appropriate tiles, but had 2 left over of the gold color. PHEW!!!

I finished the build listening to NAS, Hieroglyphics, The Alcoholics, Warren G, Ghetto Boyz, and Schooly D while drinking a 40. Oh yeah....I can drink now. Game on.

Very nice floor mosaic. I instantly liked your vault door and I'm glad you found out too late about the printed one.

Quoting Flare . Heh, hope I don't have to go against you in the future :P

Congratulations, and good luck in Round3. I'm obviously slightly disappointed, but you had a good build here and won reasonably fairly. (My own lack of strategy in posting first, and giving you time to change some things, is my only regret). But well done sir and perhaps I'll see you again next year, Ian

Quality stuff that is worthy of your ticket to the next round, but my vote went to your opponent. It was no easy decision as you both brought MocOlympics quality entries to our humble contest. Congrats none the less and welcome to Round 3!~H

Sorry guys, I ain't got time for a long write up, as both entries were awesome! Both had great action and little details. But, my vote has to got to one of you. And its you!

You may not have been at the top of your game for MO Round 1, but with more time, you've really rebounded to come up with this fun build. I love all the interior details, and the story is entertaining as well. Nice work and good luck!

This is a really strong entry. I never did believe there was any favouritism - if you win you do it on merit.

NICE! I mean, I probably wouldn't hand over cash to a guy holding a clone blaster, but that is one classy bank! Well done, and good luck!

All I can think to say is UGH! (That's a complement by the way.) After reading your write-up, I've come to the conclusion that it's always bad idea to post first. I think you are probably going to win (size is usually what kills me, I have very limited pieces). Great work all around here Heath! Looks like your off to a good start, got Shifu's vote! Thanks for being a great opponent!

This is really great Heath! Lots of nice details like the stained glass window and the sofa and floor. Your best entry yet! Good luck with the rest of your judges.

The competition just got tougher and everybody appreciates when builders create memorable MOCs. Both your entries are exceptional and neck-and-neck. The popularity of Ian's build confirms the MOC's superior quality. The trouble though of posting early is that the opponent gets a better chance to size up his competition. IMO, that is what just happened here. There is pressure for Heath to top Ian's and I believe he delivered just enough to sway the advantage. The size of the MOC did not matter, but I thought the action ultimately decided the vote. This was a tough call. You got my vote.

Looks great Heath, and I have to agree with you about the 'mates as judges' thing - seems like some kids just need to grow up. Both you and Ian did really well in this round and it will still be a tough decision for the big wigs ;) Good luck mate! ~Thoy

I can never remember - is it roses on the piano, or tulips on the organ? Lee.

It is a lovely build. I am quite fond of the stained glass myself. Lee.

Whoa! You really out-did yourself this time! Great use of your theme by the way. I really love the overall quality and size of this build. Great job and good luck!
