I noticed your comment on my Apocalypse contest entree and you seemed to be really looking forward to the "other" build. If you drop me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), I'll send you some WIP pics of the "other" apoc build I'm working on.
A very good little vig! Great humor in it. At least we know mermaids also celebrate Christmas. ;) The "fish-suspension" is a very clever idea. Good luck in the contest and Merry Christmas! ~ Ghostman :)
Quoting Alex Fojtik
The technique for getting the fish to "float" is genious (I don't use that word often around here). Did you come up with that? The build is well done and humorous all around. Good luck.
I'm sure somebody else has used those bionicle spines for something similar before (new ideas in Lego are pretty rare), but not that i've seen. I was after a way to get a fish or two into the background and this came from playing around trying to find connections. I claim the credit for fish-suspension! Thanks for the kind words Alex.
