M.O. Round 2: SuperSpyX vs Gabe Umland . THE RULE OF WOMEN:
My entry consists of four dioramas, each showing a part of life under the rule of women. . My opponent's entry
"Heartlake City. Dystopia:" The take on this category would be something along the lines of "The Stepford Wives" (Yes, the (bleepy) remake with Mathew Broderick) only instead of the women being the subserviant subjects, this time the shoe is on the other foot. Give us your version of a dystopian society where the women are in control and the men are objects to be owned. (If you have "Friends" minifigs use them. If you don't, NO deductions will be made to your moc)
How did it happen? How did we not see it working? It came suddenly, overwhelming, moving like a tide, sweeping the globe, unstoppable. Before we knew what was happening, it was nearly complete, too late to do anything. How did we not see? All those women get-togethers, tupperware parties, talks with friends and all that? Sure, they did do those things, but what they where REALLY doing was planning, working and moving toward their goal. And we, like dumb animals, didn't suspect, didn't know, didn't think anything. You might say that we deserved our fate. Now, the downtrodden have risen up, and forced us down. We cannot resist. It is complete.
DIORAMA 1: THE FACTORY
The factory is where men are converted into “servants”, only capable of obeying commands. The process is shown below.
View from right.
View from left.
STATION 1: A female worker, with the help of a cattle prod, herds captive men onto the conveyor belt.
STATION 2: When a man comes under, the giant hammer knocks him on the head, stunning him for the rest of the process. At the same time, a robotic arm removes the handcuffs and deposits them in a chute to the left for reuse.
STATION 3: After being stunned, the men move under another robotic arm, which removes their hairpiece and drops it down the chute to the left.
STATION 4: Once the hairpiece is removed, the men move on to the next station, where yet another robotic arm applies the antenna that allows the men to be controlled. The antennas come into the room on a conveyor belt to the left of the arm.
After the process is finished, the newly completed “servant” walks out, past a quality check agent.

Uh-oh, what's this? Phipson, chasing a blonde girl and being pursued by a policema-er, sorry, woman? This can't be good.
Ah, that's the trouble. His antenna fell off and he returned to his primal instincts. Oh well, that policewoman will soon take him out with her stun-gun.
Meanwhile, a road repairman is “busy” repairing the road.

DIORAMA 4: THE ROYAL COURT
This dio shows the new ruling court of the women. Every four years, a new woman is chosen - based on brains and beauty - to rule. Also chosen is her personal assistant. Women have developed a new type of cosmetic that makes the skin pale, but it is expensive and only available to the ruling class. The queen and her assistant wear gold bracelets, and the queen wears a tiara and carries a scepter. Both wear fine dresses. The ruling class is served by a special staff of clones, specially altered to work for the elite. A butler (bringing bread and cheese on a tray) and two guards (armed with stun-guns) are shown.
