Will Thomas vs JD Luse Round 2: Post-Apoc
Round two; now in a computer near you!
About this creation
Here we go, round 2. Will this decide the MOC-off? I vote yes. =)


Round 1: JD Luse

Round 2: ????

Round 3: ????


--------------------------------------------------



Discovery


It is the year 2210. A nuclear war has recently taken place, nearly wiping out the human race.


Two wayward travelers have stumbled upon a massive machine...










They know that this is one of the last war machines after WWIII, but what they don't know until now, is that the owners have returned.























The Black Killers are a post-apoc gang like none other.










Their technology is far beyond any other guild of gang left on earth; while most people wander the land trying to rebuild the world, this gang builds hardsuits and mechs.










The two travelers have one choice. Join or be killed. That's what The Black Killers do best.










--------------------------------------------------










Like I always say, nothing is better than a good back story. =)












Please note that this is the second mech I have ever made in my life. Is it OK?











This next picture is one of the better shots...






Inspiration for this came from Mech Warrior. Thanks to my dad for providing some pictures.










Oh, I forgot to mention that this is my very first Post-Apoc MOC ever. (And it's in a critical MOC-off...yikes!)










Our mech WITHOUT a base. Proof that he can stand and swivel on his own. =)











Our travelers...










Our big bad gang with their hovering hardsuit buddy...









I will quote Goldman again..."Get some sleep!!"














My worthy enemy is Will Thomas...


...and here's our awesome judges:


Darkspawn (Aaron Andrews)

Very impressive, JD, but I have to give this round to Will. I really enjoyed the SNOT base and the amount of detail you put into the mech. The things that let you down here was the lack of articulation in the mech and the minifig action is missing a certain "something." Very well done besides. I'd like to see more mecha from you ;)

What I meant was that someone spammed it down and then another person spammed it back up

Great Job with the build!! Unfortunately Will just knocked your pants off. Can't wait for round 3. =)

It's a clean build, which is ordinarily a compliment, but which will probably lose you this round. It reminds me of my building style in a way: I can't remember what specific MOC he was critiquing that brought it up, but the wise Brian K. once said my dioramas tended to look "sterile," meaning a lack of little details that bring a scene to life... I think that may be the issue here.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that my inspiration for a SNOT post-apoc MOC came from Austen S. Check his stuff out.

This is very well done, JD, but to me it doesn't quite capture the "post-apoc" feel that Will portrayed in his MOC; of course, my opinion does not matter here, just follow your muse! Besides that, I love it! Great street, and you say you can't build a mech? Quit your modesty, boy. This MOC-off could possibly be the most epic competition, besides the MocOlympics, that I have ever seen on MOCpages. This could get ugly near the end...let's see some blood! Yours brickly, Nick

Yeah, it seems a lot of us get our mech inspiration from mechwarrior (If my Snow Leopard wasn't a rip off of a Mad Cat I don't know what would be). This is a great entry JD! The mech is great and the back story is really good. I'm gonna have to give my vote to Will though. While you're creation is VERY cool, His has a more that "post apoc" feel that we're all used to. Not that this couldn't happen in a post apoc setting but... You know what I'm saying. Great job none the less. ~ Chris.

The story is really good (it could be a excellent start for a longer story !) - The Mech is not over-complicated, but it's classical (in a good way) and beautiful ! Overall this is very enjoyable. Good luck !

As much as I like mecha, Will has you beat here. ~Phong Chang

No thanks JD, and Garth: in Apocalypses, there would be people who survived in bomb-shelters, and also structures without maintinence would corode over time, even if there weren't any survivors to shoot it all to the ground. And JD: even if it was on purpose, it's just a bit bulky. But it's not like I could do better. :P P.S. did ya email the link to our judges?

Thanks for the input guys! In reply to Will, the legs are actually meant to be stiff like that. I can send you a picture of the real thing via e-mail if you want.

I like the clean lines. Some stuff will still look nice after the apocolypse. There won't be enough people left alive to ruin all the nice things for years. I know if I was left over at the end I'd be glad to find a super mech that can help me blow things up. For a cool Post-apoc movie people don't seem to have seen, keep an eye out on for The World, The Flesh and the Devil, a 1959 movie with Harry Belafonte. It runs on TMC once in a while. Both you and will have nice pieces and I wouldn't envy judges one bit. Good luck. garth

Pretty good. Way to little rubble. This one looks wayyy to um... not post apocy good job on the background though. BTW posted a new moc
 I like it 
  September 25, 2008
Ok. It needs more rubble, and the road looks a little too "perfect". The mech is good, but the legs need a bit of work [not very flexy]. I really liked the hardsuit though, and also the story...and the mechs guns aren't bad :p ~Will
