"What about the R.O.U.Ss?"
About this creation
2012 MocAthalon
Team: Something SNOTy
Category 8. The Princess Bride





To set the scene...
Westley and Buttercup have fled into the Fire Swamp to escape the nasty Prince Humperdinck. Buttercup falls victim to the Lightening Sand and Westley grabs a vine and jumps in to save her... meanwhile, unbeknownst to them (but knownst to us) the third horror of the fireswamp, an R.O.U.S (rodent of unusual size) wanders past.



























Yes, you sticklers of purity will notice I have fudged the timing of the scene by about 10sec for the dramatic, artistic purpose of having both Westley's hand coming out of the lightening sand and the R.O.U.S in the shot at the same moment.







Ratty is approx 20cm long in real measurements -8 inches to all you other folks- from snout to butt (tail not-inclusive) and 13cm high. And he used up all my brown cheese slopes, (so please don't tell me the ground needs some brown cheese slopes), in an attempt to mimic the R.O.U.S's coarse fuzzy hair.

I'm not sure anymore what I love more, the movie or your MOC. Your R.O.U.S. is scary and cute at the same time (especially cute in the last large picture). Adding Westley's hand was the right decision.

Quoting Heath 'kik36' Flor Just kidding dear.....of course! Though next time a judge wants to sit back and think upon it, I wouldn't be too quick to comment againts it. Acting on their impulses could cost you a point or two. ;) Score= 5
So... is that 6 points?

Quoting Hans Dendauw NPD Hats off to the creator of this category; without it, we would be deprived of this beautiful MOC! And don't worry, I'll have a talk with Bones about this when I see him this week...=P ~H

Quoting Blake Baer Oh, that's classy. I was going to award a solid 4, until I saw the transition between the tan and dark tan in the cutaway. Details like that will get you a perfect. Score: 5
Thanks Blake, that means a lot. I know you don't give out 5s lightly. I took your critique from my previous entry and your general statement in the judging thread to mind and really tried hard to make it work as a whole scene.

Compared to what you usually do with bricks. Im not that amased with this one .. Seems to me like you just finished it off quickly. Sorry to say. :) .... I know you aree way better ... Hell, youre one of my favorite builders, and i only have around 10 .. Still good. But not as good as you usually swing em LEGO !
  March 9, 2012
Leda....this is the first entry that I am totally on the fence about. Though, I'd like to admit I know the movie like the back of my hand, it has been a few years since I've seen it. Since I can not find the full scene you have depicted here online, I have decided I must watch the movie again in order to fairly judge your entry. I apologize for the inconvenience of receiving an immediate score, but I feel in order to judge this correctly I must watch the movie again this weekend. I appreciate your patience whilst I do the proper research (AKA movie watching....oh yeah!). I will have your score ready for you by the end of the weekend.

Great work on the Rodent of Unusual Size and the scene in general! Though thoroughly satisfactory, I feel a burst of flame would really help intensify the scene, I mean, it /is/ the Fire Swamp. Great job, nevertheless!
