For the 2012 Mocathalon category number 2: A Day at the Circus:
Ladies and gentleman -- boys and girls, the traveling circus is in town! It's time for you to be the ringmaster and depict a day at the circus in LEGO! Will you create a small scene, or a big tent? It's up to you. Make it colorful and fun for big points! (Duplo animals may be used as well)
The Winter Brother's Circus travels along with dirigible convoys and entertains them.
This traveling circus utilizes steam pipes for extra effect. They just hook up their pipes to the host ship's boiler and they are in business.
The resident but not so stable,(mentally that is) Lever-man, Guster Phelps, controls all the power from his prominent center stage position.
Brontor the Magnificent and his magic box.
Harchibald the blade juggler.
The tight-chain unicyclist, Mastadon, and his trained chimpanzee, Lily.
An attempt at making a tailcoat which I rather like.
The original idea was to build an entire traveling circus dirigible that would contain these guys. Seeing as my last airship took three months to build and there was less than a week left of Mocathalon, I went with the more simple innards. I would like to revisit this idea in the future when I have more time. Don't let me forget.
