MocOlympics Round 1 “Yellow Submarine”
Somewhere in the Atlantic, the U.S.N. Yellow Fin fusion-powered attack sub is locked in mortal combat with legendary Sea Wraith. After multiple salvos and decisive maneuvers both combatants have literally placed themselves in a point-blank standoff at the bottom of a deep chasm. The only witnesses to this epic match are the monstrous tube-worms, sea anemones, and a humongous crustacean waiting perhaps, to dine on the vanquished, which ever that may be!

I've decided to due away with my usual commentary for the moment and let the pics speak for themselves. Best of luck to all the contestants and may we meet again in Round 2!

Quoting Tim C Absolutely outstanding! I don't know how I missed this when it was first posted. The subs look fantastic, especially the yellow one. Reminds me a bit of something that Captain Nemo would be running around in, rather than Ringo Starr;) I like how you used so many of the Hero Factory pieces to pull it off. The underwater scenery looks great as well, right down to the giant shrimp. (That is a shrimp, right)? Either way, great work.
Yeah, it's the mother of all prawns! Thanks buddy for the nod.

Quoting Elk Guard Wow, great way to play to your strengths with those subs!
Thanks for the feedback, to me a sub is just an underwater spaceship so it worked for this one.

Quoting Freeling ++ Best of luck in the competition! If I lose I won't mind too terribly bad, because I've been wanting to build some MOCs and also continue on my comic series.
I've checked out some of your stuff and you defiinitely have talent to be proud of! I hope to have my MOC up in a day or two and we'll see what the judges think of or work.

Quoting StoveTop Creator Congrats! Have fun in round 2! :)
Thank you my friend. To be honest though, I don't think I stand much of a chance of making it to R3. The category I pulled for R2 is way outside my usual building zone and if my oppponent is even as half as good as I think he is then I'm up the creek!

Quoting Chris Roach pretty good score of 48, good luck in round two!
A score of 48 huh? I figured I'd be lucky to scrape by with a score that would of brought me in at 64th place. Now the real battle begins!

You're too kind. There's just so many quality builds this year though I'll be lucky to scrape in at the bottom of the brick-pile! Well here we go again down the rabbit hole.

Thanks, and if you like that I also have some micro-scale fighters using the same techniques you would probably enjoy as well.

Quoting Master Shifu Leo J Great subs, but I must say I'm liking the Sea Wraith much more! Cool scenery to complete the presentation! Most excellent!
You're not the first to say that but my selection of yellow is kind of wierd in the parts I have. If I tried to build a system based yellow sub it would come out pretty boring and not worthy of a R2. As far as the Sea Wraith goes, that was literally a last minute filler I threw together to fill in the scenery. Guess it worked out better than I planned huh? Most importantly though, thanks for the comments. It's good to know that I can still slap together a MOC that's worth half a rats arse at least!

Quoting Giovanni & Lennaert Seynhaeve Now those are a bunch of subs you don't get to see too often! Indeed, what Barto said: put these on a galaxy background and you get a starwars alternate world. Oh, and I love what you did with the plantlife on the base; very nice! Good luck with your judges!
Kind words my friends, kind words. Thank you. I still need a whole lot of training with photoshop first. The last couple of times I tried to do it were disasterous to put it mildly!

Quoting Leda Kat =^..^= Cool subs! The yellow one especially, I like the shapes and parts you've used. Neat underwater scene. Best of luck in the contest!
Ah, my sweet kitty your kind words are a purr of sheer bliss to me. Too mushy? Okay, enough of that blarney! Thank you though, really. On to the next round, hopefully.

Quoting El Barto ! Dude! Cool subs! Of course they would make killer spaceships, but with the contest and all. Good luck with the judges!
Well if I figure out how to use Photoshop then maybe one day I will. Although to be honest, I'd probably have more luck just getting a large poster with the galaxy on it and putting my builds in front of it! Thanks as always friend.

Quoting JS Can Nice work. I think I actually prefer the grey sub a little more.
In some ways I do too. I admit it at least looks like a sub. The Yellow Fin looks like the builder was getting a little too literal with the Beatles concept. He must been dropping some Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, maybe.

Quoting Harry 863 Great detail on the subs
Thanks, I must admit my "yellow sub" is based on some of more recent fighter designs so I wasn't sure if would be believable as a sub I guess it came out all right.

Quoting Tom Simon Nice. That's a lot of building for the first round. You are not taking anything for granted.
Yeah, well there's too many talented builders that are way better than me to go lightly. The last time I was in this psycho-circus I got thoroughly trounced in R2. This time I hope to do better. Thank you for the suppport.

Quoting Parrington Levens Hope to see you in rnd 2 mate, the grey micro has a wicked shape, and some fun scenery. Yeh, I'm with you on the over description cut back as well mate, I dare say no-one really wants to do a lot of reading when looking at a Moc. Way to go mate :)
Thanks Parrington. I'll still write storylines where it's appropriate but for contests it just tkes too much time, at least for me. I hope the scenery is good enough. That's always been a struggling point for me in my builds. Guess we'll see soon enough.

Thanks for the nod my friend. After looking at some of the competition so far this is going to be a tough fight. I don't know how far I'll get but I'll give my best.
