M.O - Round 1: Thriller !
About this creation
MOC Olympics round One.
Category: Thriller.










I normally like to think outside the square for these categories and contests, but Michael Jackson's Thriller is so legendary I didn't want to stray from it too far.


So, I did Michael and (some of) the dancing zombies.





















I made each zombie a different character. Trying to get them to look like they are decomposing is tough.






This dude is my favourite because he kept turning when I was taking the pics... like he was dancing to his own beat.







No zombies here.

WHAT?! Is it really that time of year already? I've been so wrapped up in life outside the Lego community that I completely forgot about the MocOlympics! I guess I'm spectating this year. Go for gold Leda! As if anyone else stands a chance! ;)

Thanks one and all on your great comments! Sorry I can't reply to every one, but I read and re-read them all and feel chuffed that you like it so much. I wish the best of luck to all competitors in the MOs this year and those that don't make it I wish luck in the MIT. Thanks Chris and judges for all the hard work you have done so far and in advance for all the insane amount of work you have yet to come!

HA! This is classic. I love when you build at this scale because of the amount of detail you can give your characters. Michael's jerry curls are perfect!

Great stuff Leda, looks like you are going to be hard to beat this year! :) Btw, i love the empty background shot you had on Flickr - the subtle, understated mix of close colours and different textures works really well. Best of luck!

Leda, I am incredibly impressed by this build. I love the dynamic poses of the figures; you've captured movement very well. The part usage, particularly on the legs is brilliant and inspired - and it matched the scale perfectly. The background is quite well done - I really enjoy the way you create texture and depth from a mix of colors and elements - it's refreshing to see a non-smooth look done well. Also, I'm so glad you're building in a non-minifig scale. Devon asks if you're going to win it again, and with entries like this, I see no reason why not. ~Dave

Excellent. Even though I hate that song and that video ever so much, I have to admit that this is a great model well presented. Instantly recognizable!

Love it mate. Perfectly pitched. The mixture of colours and textures on the backgrounds on the wall add loads to the overall image and the figs are brilliantly built and posed. Go easy on the rest of us in R2 OK?

fantastic, even the walls are decomposing! I remember I was around 11 or 12 years old when this clip hit the TV screen and it literally sucked me to it. Red leather jackets sold out in no time too. Anyway, that album is high in my book. You did a terrific job here Leda, didn't expect any less. See you in the last few rounds ;) ?

You're gonna steal the M.O.'s again with builds like these, Leda. Quite amazing, the backround itself is a good build, but the icing on the cake? Well, we all know what that is.

I'd love to see the shots of YOU dancing while building this beauty. That would be truly inspirational! If I don't know any better looks like you're setting the pace to the winners circle all over again. I'm sure I'll see you in R2, but hopefully not as an opponent, at least not yet. I'd like to last a little if that's even possible! Laters kitty-kat.

Excellent composition and execution as usual! The poses are fabulous, the caricature-esque proportions of the figures really imaginative and effective. Once again you're going to be an extremely hard act to beat this year! Good luck with the rest of the contest!

Quoting Medieval Guy The background adds so much to this.
Thanks, it looks kind of like a stage backdrop for a musical I think. I like it too and was concerned people wouldn't notice it, so I was forced to do what I don't particularly like doing - take a photo of it without the foreground action... but its proving popular on flickr too, I've had a couple of people favourite just that empty image.

Its an Easter egg... though I admit, its not very well hidden because I liked the strangeness of it so much that I made sure he was clearly seen in a photo. Keep an eye out for him in future mocs... ;)

Quoting Tim C I always enjoy the MOCs you come out with. Your ability to create such expressive figures out of LEGO is second to none. I love, first of all, the scenery you set up for this. The pose of the figures looks like a perfect freeze frame of the video. Michael Jackson is unmistakable. I am especially impressed by your manipulation of bricks and tiles to create his signature red jacket. So well done. Good luck in the M.O.
Thank you Tim. I have tried to mimic the moment of the dance where they do that funny little zombieish walk with their hands up. I can't explain the move properly but its very cute. I don't know if I've achieved any type of recognition of that particular move or not, it was very difficult. I think if they had both feet on the ground it would be more similar, but I tried that and the images just didn't look dynamic enough, so I posed them all on one foot. I'm rambling... thanks for your comment!

Quoting Hans Dendauw NPD My wife, to this day, can still do the entire dance routine, to the utter embarrassment of our kids! LOL I shared this with her and she loved it! Great work and good luck with the rest of the competition!~H
