To SNIR Or Not To SNIR
MocOlympics Round 4. Master Shifu Leo J vs Kevin Fedde. This is my entry for the 2009 MocOlympics Round 4 in the category "Instrukshuns" against Kevin Fedde. Enjoy!
About this creation

Category: "Instrukshuns"
Opponent: Kevin Fedde


INTRODUCTION:

So, let's see. I take a brick. Put another brick on top of it. Then another to build a stack... Yeah?!?! You know how to do that already? Dangit...

I must say I'm stumped with this category. It begs the question, "What would Brian Boitano do?"
[ If you cannot access the link above, click here for an audio snippet. ]

What would Brian Boitano do
When battling Kevin Fedde?
He'd SNOT and SNIR a brick or two
That's what Brian Boitano'd do


Hopefully I picked a technique most people have not tried or heard of (and if you have, meeeh). Somebody please fire up the popcorn machine...

To SNIR Or Not To SNIR


==========================================

... or was it "To sneeze or not to sneeze"? 'Cause, you know, SNOT might shoot out off the noggin... AHAHA... HAHA...AHA... HA... OK, lame joke... just bracing for an epic whupping, folks...

Studs Not In A Row. No, no, no... we're not talking about our five studly, manly-man judges here (unless, of course, I get extra points for saying so). SNIR is an actual advanced building technique:





"The SNIR 27 technique has been developed by Reinhard "Ben" Beneke. It allows to build a wall at an angle of about 27° to the baseplate grid of studs. This angle is performed using jumper plate AZMEP technique. The 1x1 elements which the wall are made of (here bricks) may also be slightly turned to create of less regular shape." - from The Unofficial LEGO Advanced Building Techniques Guide compiled by Didier Enjary



Da Build:



And because this may very well be my last stand, I built a microscale guard tower using the SNIR technique to hold off what will be known in the annals of MOC Olympics as the K-Fedde Onslaught, where Master Shifu gets "shifu-cated", i.e., slapped silly ... Come to think of it, I should have gone for full-scale defense instead of microscale defense... Now I'm really gonna get crushed... F@#%&@#%!!!




This gateless guard tower design is deemed ingenious... at least, initially... It is part of the defense "strategery". Master Shifu microfig has to fly a hang glider to get in it.




Don't be fooled. Them flowers look pretty, but they act as the primary defensive barrier. They are poisonous, cyanide-laced, and sprinkled with highly explosive O.R. Gas-M powder, MUWAHAHAHA! Hey, gotta try to slow down the onslaught, right?




Master Shifu has never actually taken hang gliding lessons. It can't be that hard, right? Well, OK, maybe the landing can pose problems especially on top of a tower...




Like it wasn't gonna happen. Master Shifu did not have enough lift (darn pot of rice and slab of bacon for breakfast). Hang glider hits tower and falls straight to them pretty flowers.




Kaboom!!! OMG! They killed Master Shifu!... Wait, he killed himself accidentally... Never mind... I suppose the actual K-Fedde Onslaught will never occur...



Da Instrukshuns:



Laying the foundation




Applying the SNIR technique




Stacking them 1x1 bricks




Tower complete!

Around the tower:











In conclusion,

What would Brian Boitano do
To win Round 4 today?
Probe Phipson! F! T! Double-"U"!
That's what Brian Boitano'd do!





... Master Shifu takes a bow , grabs a tub of butter-laden popcorn, and exits left with the quickness ...



THE END



I would like to thank everyone who have cared to look at my MOCs. Hopefully, they have entertained and have given y'all a smirk. XD

Not a problem. Just make sure to credit its inventor Reinhard Beneke. ;)

Hilarious in the way you offed yourself, and instructive in technique. Everybody's a winner in this round. (Okay, that sounds cheesy, but I wish it to be true)

Well, that's a new one on me! Since my fellow judges already gave you the axe for the MOC-O's, perhaps Eggplant could use an assistant. Between the both of ya, ya'll done learned me good!

As far as usefulness - yours wins in my book - you taught me something. As far as the presentation goes, then I have to give my vote to your competitor. Lee.

Great work here. This is an awesome technique to show the masses. Nice tower design and good amount of humor and antics going on as well. These last few rounds are going to be tough on the judges. Brian Boitano would give you a vote or two! ...Yeah, that's what Brian Boitono'd do.
