My opponent,Thomas of Tortuga.
-Strength Event
Whether it's rolling boulders, carrying large packs up the side of a small cliff, or a combination of them with your own additions, build an event-like scene depicting your character achieving physical feats of strength. What we don't want is a scene with you fighting off orcs and wargs. Spectators and fans along the sidelines watching are definitely allowed as well as judges to ascertain the fairness of the competition. Remember, your character is competing against other minifigures. Are you strong enough to move on to the next round?




Hey guys, Marcus here! So glad I made it to round 2, and I think I got this whole strength thing in the bag.Oh, and also, I've ditched the ninja idea, disguises are no fun....



Looks like some of the Gnomes are here to cheer me on!



Judge No. 1: Wow, what is with this getup they're making us wear?

Judge No. 2: Pretty bad, huh....They should make prisoners wear stuff like this, man!



Referee: All right, first up for the strength contest is the one called Thomas...Go ahead kid.



Thomas: All right, I got this!



Thomas: Hurry up, and bring me my weights!



Thomas: Thank you.



Thomas: OH YEAH! How about that? That's 10 whole....WAAAAAAHHH!!!!



Thomas: Ow....



Judge: Well that does it for him...Next up is Spike!



Spike: GRRR....RARG OOG AGA!!!





Spike: ROARGGG!!!!!!!



Ref: Wow, that was impressive! All right, last is Marcus, Who was known in round 1 as the "Fruit Ninja". Get 'er done kid.



All right, Time to win...oh, was that the sound of your mouth dropping because of my huge muscle mass?...Yeah, that's what I thought...



OK, Bring me the heaviest thing you got!



...WOW!!! (Didn't expect it to be that big...)



George: Oh NO! That stupid newb is going to blow it!

Halhi: Oh come on... He's not such a newb...look at that rockwork.
And Look, he's lifting it with ease....wow....

George: Huh!?!



Oh Yeah! No Problem Guys!



Judges: Well this is an easy decision...Marcus Wins the Strength Event!!!!



Oh yeah, Victory Dance, Victory Dance!

Quoting Grant Davis You both are mean for making me choose, even as I am writing this I have no idea who i'm gonna vote for. I prefer your rocks to his, way to many studs showing. In Vegetation vs. the snow your opponent wins, I think a little more roundness on the snow clumps would have been great. On the arena, I have never been a fan of what people do with that technique it looks too blocky to be stone bath stuff, I prefer having round shapes in the stonework as well, so you win on that, for the judges stands or in his case the audience, I like how you have the separate 'clans' that each have a set side, but I also prefer the way his look full of people to yours. I liked your theme song (I listened to it 3 times) and 100% random car explosion, that made me laugh... ugh I still don't know who's build I prefer... Photography is about even. Both are humorous. Both have explosions. uuuugh ok so I make my decision on the fact that I think your build could have been a little more condensed. Not much just a little. His was very detailed in all the space that he had. If you made yours smaller all the detail would have been shown without any little bits of un-detailed grey plates showing. I am talking like 5 studs here) Not something huge, but as you can tell I am scratching to find differences. You did a super great job, I am impressed with both builds very much, but he gets my vote.
I think he deserves it more, well, just because his arena was cooler( I mean the way he did the ground...)

Quoting Matt W. Better luck next year? Right now I think me and my opponent are tied...
I meant it as, "sorry you didn't get my vote, better luck next year", not "sorry you lost, better luck next year". My bad on the confusion. :)

Uh . . . wow. So many amazing techniques. :O That rockwork is superb! The platform is excellent. And the judge's booth roof is definitely an eye-catcher. ;D The story was also pretty funny. Nice work.

Snow tends to be nonexistent in southern coastal areas- take California and Florida, for instance.

Quoting Alex Sonny This is great! The scene is spectacular, the mini rock cliff is very neat and the snow adds to the whole look a lot. The story is good too, but I tend to focus in the moc more, and it's really amazing.

Quoting Halhi 141 I'm almost tempted not to comment now that you've told me to... Anyway, great build, the rocks and everything else look fantastic (I personally prefer yours). Though there isn't snow in Carthal...
I thought there was snow everywhere?

Quoting Graham Gidman A very good entry, but I feel like your opponent's was more composed, and therefore he gets my vote. Better luck next year!

Quoting David FNJ Both of you did a great job with the landscaping! I felt that you pushed it up a notch with the rocky landscape, the snow, and interesting judges stand, as well as the cool weights. You have my vote! Good luck with the other judges.
Thanks for voting for me!

Well, It was gonna be you, and then I decided it looked nothing like you, so it wasn't gonna be you...so then I couldn't think of a good name sooo....Thus, Thomas.
