The link to the 2012 MocOlympics
And to my opponent’s homepage : Cédric Picher
"It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine : some (crazy) people say that in the year 2012, the world will end as we know it. Create a disastrous scene showing what might happen when the world ends !!!"
At first, I thought of doing something original, but I realized that a) my ideas were maybe a little too much "out of the box", and b) what’s better for this category than a good ol’ blockbuster, like "2012" or "The Day After Tomorrow" ?
So without further explanation, coming soon in your theater and introducing Siggy, Moc Olympics Production and Tom are proud to present you :
A long time ago, in the thick jungles of what would become Guatemala, stood the secret pyramid of Meskal.
The Mayans kept a secret there…
Guarded by a priest, the mayan calendar turned slowly, counting the days…
… Until one peculiar day !
Centuries passed, civilizations rose and fell…
Somewhere in the Mediterranean Sea…
"Signore e signori, this is captain Cretino speaking. On the port side, you can catch sight of the french shores. We’ll get as close as we can so you’d enjoy the view. Thanks for cruising with Casto Cruises."
"Darling, the ice-cream seller is here !"
Woman in the water : "Darling, did you hear me ?"
Angry husband on the stairs : "Yes honey, I’m coming…"
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 21st, 2012
An ordinary day, except for the unusually high temperature on a winter day…
Play-boy : "Hi, beauty !"
Everyone is enjoying a pleasant afternoon.
Siggy and his girlfriend are celebrating their anniversary with champagne. (That's the real date, actually !)
Man in leather jacket : "Those postcards ! Let’s see : sister Suzie, brother John, Martin Luther, Phil and Don, brother Michael, auntie Gin…"
Teacher : "Have a nice Holiday and merry Christmas, kids !"
Pupils : "Yeaaaah !!!!"
Pinball-addict punk : "I’m gonna break my record today !"
Phipson : "Me too !"
Musician : "Somewhere beyond the sea…"
Surf shopkeeper : " ’Need anything else ?"
Freshly fully equipped diver : "Hho, Hhanks a Hlot !"
… And some sleep overnight.
Upsetting wife : "Darling, my ice-cream !"
Angry husband : "Yes honey, I’m just looking for an ATM !"
"OK, let’s empty the bank account…"
Meanwhile, inside the bank…
Robber : "Gimme the cash, man !"
Banker : "M-m-maybe you should take a run, I already pushed the alarm button…"
"Not without the money !"
"And now, let’s get away…"
** Siren wailing **
** Brakes screaking **
Angry husband who still has not been able to get cash : "What’s that noise, over here?"
Cops : "Freeze !"
Robber : "OK, now would be a good time to find me a hostage"
Angry husband who suddenly lost interest in buying ice-cream : "Gulp !"
Play-boy : "LOOK !!!"
"Mmh ? Hey, what the…"
Woman : "B-but… That’s a TSUNAMI !!"
Musician : "Nearer, My God, to Thee…"
** General panic **
** Insert Benny Hill theme **
Husband : "Run !"
Robber : "Run !!"
Policemen : "Ruuun !!!"
Photographer : "It's the scoop of a lifetime !"
Surfer girl : "Yippeee !!!!"
"Everybody's gone surfin'..."
* * * * *
2 HOURS LATER
Fireman : "Push !"
Robber : " ‘Must have been one of those days…"
Police officer : "You have the right to remain silent, but you’ll be charged for drowning our patrol car…"
Husband (still angry) : "… And you know what ? I didn’t even get you your ice-cream !"
Wife : "Don’t worry darling, next holiday, we go to the mountain…"
"Meow… Saved by music !"
Bartender : "How you doing down there ?"
Phipson : "Fine, the water is just OK !"
"To our three years !"
Man on the roof : "There’s no way I write them all again !"
Teacher : "Oh no ! My school !"
Pupil : "Oh yes ! My school !"
Surfer girl : "Why is everyone so nervous ?"
** Yawn **
"What just happened ?"
"Seems it’s the end of the world as we know it... and I feel fine !"
Bonus DVD : The whole build, détails, unused pics.
Who said cats are afraid of water ? Well, maybe not of Lego water…
Commentary : this is my first City MOC since my dark ages and it’s been challenging ! I also really enjoyed including microscale and perspective tricks, I hope it works…
And I REEEEALLY think my next build will be less… gigantic (Whether I go further in the MO or not, BTW).
Thanks for viewing and good luck to everyone, long live MocPages !
