In Classic Space No One Can Hear You Scream
Space Cadet Stevie has forgotten to close the airlock door!
About this creation


Space Cadet Stevie has forgotten to close the airlock door. Stevie is sucked out into the cold vacuum of space without a spacesuit on. Being a mini-fig from the 1980s, Stevie keeps on smiling, as this was the only expression that mini-figs could have in those days. This was why "In Classic Space no one can hear you scream", you had no choice but to keep on smiling!



This photo has a different focus so that you can see Stevie more clearly.



An overview of the whole thing. The airlock is an 8x8 frame, as is the base. This is a replacement for the original photo, as the base which I'd lazily plonked the important bit on was bigger and not helpful for the competition. The view from the top still looks the same.

This is my entry in The Timinater's FlexibleFig Contest 2

Ha ha! I think I will stick with Star Wars, Alien looks way to scary for me. The main picture makes this thing look so big (like a 1x1 foot space battle vignette) and yet in reality the whole thing is really small. Great work on a fun prospective piece!

While it's not my place to question the judge's scores, I personally think this is the most inventive entry in the current Flexible Fig contest. I love how outside the box it is, both in technique and literalness! ;) Brilliant stuff sir!

Quoting Clever Crowe Such a simple, smooth carryout of an epic Innovation. Think you rose to the challenge and MORE on this one, David. (as a side note: cheers on the sweet selection of subject matter - I remember reading the Title and smiling before I ever even saw the MOC.) Cheers, m8 =)
Thanks for your comments! I'm glad you enjoyed this MOC and its title too :)

Quoting Freeling ++ Still not sure how I got a higher score than you.. But anyways... AWESOME BUILD!!! I don't care what Timinater says, This is perfect. I saw this on most popular, and then I went to the Group that's hosting the contest, and I nearly flipped when I saw this in there. Glad to have you aboard. :D
Thank you for your very kind comments! To be honest I just built this because I thought that the idea of the build would be fun, like everything I've put on MOCpages. I wouldn't have been inspired to think of it without the competition, so I'm very grateful to the Timinater for sorting it all out. As for the marking, well the judges have their criteria and that's how competitions work and it was a simple build. The main thing for me is that I had fun and other folk enjoyed it too :)

Great perspective. He will be OK, classic space minifigs routinely ride around in vacuum with no visors. He's probably having a great time.

Quoting Tim C Love the idea, David. The airlock looks great and I like the stretched look that you've achieved with your fig. I must admit, when I saw your title, I was expecting some kind of Alien reference, but I suppose that there was an awful lot of aliens getting sucked out into space in the movies, so I can get the parallel. I'm not sure if this is actually forced perspective, because the limbs are as long as they appear to be, but I love the sense of distance that you put together here. Of course, I am endlessly entertained by your sense of humor, and the calling of attention that you do to the smiling fig in peril is...yeah, I'll say it: classic. (Get it?)Great work and creativity, and good luck in the contest.
Thank you for your comments! I was exactly after that stretched look, as though Stevie was a cartoon character. I put the feet on in the big boots because I was stuck for how to end the legs. I think that these give that FP look. I couldn't think how to do the hands bigger though. Out of my comfort zone and learning lots, which was fun! Oh, and the idea made me smile, which motivates a lot of my builds!

Quoting Starscream Soundwave Very interesting, and original, though I think you probably need a parental guidance warning, with that minifig nudity ;)
Stevie is wearing yellow clothes! That's not a Classic Space tattoo on Stevie's chest, it's a shirt. Honest! Stevie had to be yellow, partly to stand out from the background and partly because I've only got those Technic axle extenders in yellow.

Quoting The Timinater! (Moving to AUS 17th Dec.) I was sure I had commented on this! such a hilarious MOC, I love it! 2/2 for pics, 1.5/3 for build - rather simple, and 3.5/5 for pose - I just love the fact no rubber bands, etc, were used! 7/10 total!
Thank you for your comments and many thanks for taking the time to organise & judge this contest at what must be an incredibly busy time for you. You're right, is a simple build, it only took 30 minutes to make, after an evening of thinking. Strangely it's becoming my most popular MOC. I mainly built it because the idea of the long arms & legs made me smile. Thanks again, for a fun competition!

At first I thought the Vogon airlock! But no, classic space, wich is equally funny and campy. Is this for a contest? The stretched limbs really add to the s#cking feel of the universe, almost like a still in a movie. Inspiring technique!

Quoting BobaFett 2 I love this! Of course, if Stevie were a human, Stevie would suffer from explosive decompression, which means that he'd explode.
Don't worry, Chapter 8 of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy reckons you have about 30 seconds before your body fluids start to boil away. I think that Stevie might survive :) http://www.moviequotedb.com/movies/hitchhikers-guide-to-the-galaxy-the/quote_31357.html

Quoting C. Alexander Clay First I want to say cool build. I've held off judging this because I wanted to see what Timinater had to say about it first, but he seems otherwise occupied at the moment. So: The fig is blurry in the first two shots but I realize this is because of the area of focus and I think it makes for a nice effect. 2/2 points for photos. Although the airlock is 8x8 the base is quite a bit bigger. That will cost you some build points. 1.5 out 3 for the build. The figure is really cool, but not exactly flexible. 3 out of 5 for the fig. That's 6.5 out of 10 points total. If this was a forced perspective contest I'm sure it would score much higher, and as I said before I really do think this is a cool build.
Many thanks for your comments! It's great to get constructive criticism. More food for thought, just like this competition, which made me build something I wouldn't normally do. Following your comments, I've changed the last "behind the scenes" shot to the MOC sitting on an 8x8 base. I didn't think that the background was imortant, so I just lazily plonked the MOC on the first black plates that came to hand. Good learning for another time! Thank you for putting your time & thought into the judging process.
