MO:R4 Thoy Bradley vs Stormbringer "Candyland"
My entry for Round 4 of the MOColympics. Category: Roald Dahl literature.
About this creation
With the category Roald Dahl Literature, I thought I would choose a scene with lots of options for vibrancy, and also lots of options for landscaping - as this accounts for around 80% of my Lego arsenal.

My choice (if it in not recognisable) is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This is the scene where Willy Wonka first takes them into the deep underground Chocolate Room! Now I must warn there are a few discrepencies between my MOC and the details in the book - but for the most part the book did not have many of the details described - so I let my imagination run havoc :-D

Some details which I have tried to re-create are:
Peppermint Grass, Chocolate Pipes, Chocolate Waterfall (gotta be a waterfall somewhere on my MOC!), Buttercups, Oompa Loompas, Willow Tree and general all round valley like lush scenery.

Details which I could direct your attention too:
The bridge... This is to my knowledge the first Arching Curving bridge on Mocpages. It utilises the ever popular curved wall effect and combines if with a layered step technique. I have tried to include a few photos to best show off the curve.


Here is a link to my very worthy if not over-classed opponent Stormbringer
My mandatory link to the MOCOlympics Homepage

















































































4th wall commentary: Well its been another week, and unlike rounds 2 and 3 I have not been the first to upload my entry to the pool. With the unfortunate knowledge that my competitor, Stormbringer, may not be able to post an entry due to doing some hardout favours for his RL Job, I thought it would be only appropriate that I bring forth a build which would atleast pose a moderate challenge to him - I have no doubt in my mind that he was the favourite going into R4 against me. I hope to have bought forth a build which impresses you and the judges as much as possible.
For those wondering, this build is set on 12 baseplates (same size as Return of the Ancients). I have spent around 35 hours creating it and doing the photography.
THis was a lot of fun and I hope you enjoyed the viewing as much as I enjoyed the creating. Godbless! ~Thoy

Wow, this amazes me each time I see it! I decided to do a Micro-scale version of it for a contest: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/303128 While it's not completely accurate, it represents this fairly well I think. Again, great work!

Quoting Tom Simon Hey Thoy. I previously rated and commented in depth here a while ago and see that those are absent. Has my comment been deleted, or is this another system bug?
Hey Tom, I don't delete comments unless someone spams me so I'd say it was a bug. It annoys me when that happens, I had to try 8 times before my comment showed up on Kelso's 'Frame Job' Moc...

Quoting Thoy Bradley Thanks Quad, that blog is really well written, simple but still informative. I do think Pirates Remorse was not the best example from my work for the tile technique, I would have gone for Magisters Pinnacle myself, though it doesn't show the gradation as clearly - which could be the reason for your choice. Anyway, thanks and its always nice to get blogged :)
Thanks! :) You had many great different MOCs with many water techniques it was hard to choose from them. I actually have not seen Magisters Pinnacle yet, I'll go check it out right now. :)

Well done on advancing Thoy, it's a build worthy of the win even if Stormy hadn't had such bad luck. I love the bridge, the clever details in the back room, the unusual construction for the boat. Where did all those gold plates come from? The real skill here is having a wonderfully colourful build without the variety being overwhelming. Great job.

Quoting Dave Kaleta Thoy, Great build. It really has a combination of Dahl's work and your vision. ~Dave

Quoting Chris Phipson Well, we knew going in that Mr. Bringer was most likely not going to be able to post this round. And even with that knowledge you didn't "phone it in" by ANY stretch! Congrats on a GREAT build and welcome to round 5! ~ Chris.
Thanks Chris, I wanted to make a build that would do Stormbringer's own building skill justice. I'm glad I achieved something of what I was aiming for.

Quoting Giovanni & Lennaert Seynhaeve The build is yummy yummy Thoy! Stunning, amazing, a feast for the eye...even my wife loves this (and that's a huge compliment!). Good luck with your judges!

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy As Stormbringer already announced, he was not able to post his entry in time, but seeing with what you came up, I know it wouldn't have been easy for him to beat you. Very colourful but not too flamboyant. I very much love details like the ripples around the waterfall with the dark brown tiles.
Thanks Thor, I hope you don't mind me calling you that after your revelation, its a lot more simple than Mr Xenomurphy :-) ~Thoy

Quoting Stormbringer . Hey Thoy, great build and congratulations for your win! I was unable to upload anything due to a huge blackout on the east coast from an early snow storm. It's like it was destiny... Anyway your moc is perhaps my favorite entry of this round. Ooh, such bright colors! I hope you do some serious butt-kicking for now on.
Thanks mate, hey if I win it all you will be my only opponent why can legitimately say I didn't knock you out LOL. As always I will carry the weight of my previous opponents each new round, that way they are justified and can say they were beaten by the winner. Its my aim anyway :) Still much work to be done, many a brick to attach and pull apart! Thanks again! ~Thoy

Quoting Andre Benjamin Gorgeous build; the detail is overwhelmingly cool! Did you base the minifigs off of characters from the book? Good Luck! :-)
I tried to as much as possible. The kids: Mike is first on the path, Violet with the wacked hair, Charlie with his Gramps and Verusa in the boat.

Quoting Leda Kat =^..^= That choco river/waterfall is positively edible! Making me hungry. Love the giant candy canes. The whole moc is delicious, bright, fun and inviting. Excellent work Thoy. I know Stormbringer will be able to find the time to make something, so to you I wish good luck!! Hope a kiwi makes it through to round 5.
Yes I'm sure he will find a way to work those magic fingers of his... An influential reason for me to step it up how I did. Cheers mate!

Quoting Sebeus I Wow, what a trippy moc :P you have proven multi colored can look good , I once watched a part of the movie, I found it was boring but like many cases the book is probably better than the movie, Great job, now let's see what Stormbringer will bring ;)
Meh I don't like musicals and I really don't like reading haha, trippy is a great improvement on what the films were like ;) Thanks

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Well, this just goes to show you can never have too much gold! This is truly spectacular and incredibly well built! I had listed you as third in the competition, but this just boosted you to first! Good luck, at winning the whole thing that is, not just this round!
I don't think I'm first, but I think I can get there. There is still much hard work to be done even if I get through this round. Thanks :)

Quoting Kayne _ Wow! My only question is.....how do you work and have a family life when you are building these mammoths every week!?
