James' entry for the MOC-Off vs, Mark Kelso
About this creation
Here is my entry for the MOC-Off.

One day I was wandering around the pages and I had this idea of chanlenging the one and only Mark Kelso (suicidal and only possible if you were an idiot, at least that is what I have heard).

My opponent: Mark Kelso: he is in for a big surprise, and I am not talking about the MOC-Off...

The judges:
- Chris Phipson: Sadly his soul is pure, and he didn't accept my 3 million dollar bribe...
- Troberts: Good friend, and good moccer, plus he is addicted into zombie stuff. Don't use that theme in a conversation. He will talk about it for hours :P
- Jack Fonchezzz: The Fonch man or Jackie if you like (although he doesn't), one more judge, and yet another friend...
- Nannan Z.:Last minute pick, and also a great moccer...
- Lee Jones: Another great builder I don't know. I know only that he is a doctor (and according to Kelso, a really sick one...)
- Dave Sterling: Winner of the MOColympics, what more can I say?
- Dave Shaddix: Yet another great creator...


TAK-01, or The "Rear-ender" Kicker, is a strong, sturdy, long ship that has served twenty years of service in the military, although fast and strong, it gives a pleasurefull ride.








The engines are highly posable, allowing it to fly any way you want: upwards, downwards, frontwards, backwards, hovering, you name it. Note: the actual ship is just a LEGO model, attempts of making it fly will get you hurt, or in the worst cenario, it will give you a stubbed toe and a floor filled with LEGO...


Let's check out some of it's functions. It comes with side opening doors (which troops can use to jump like a board)...


You can pull down a ladder and open a trap-door on top to acess the ship's roof.


Open the lid to acess the engine..


This is the medical bed. It is only meant for first aid issues, since the mortality rate on missions using this ship is minus one. :P




Here are the cabinets and small storage places (one of each to each side of the ship). In here we put SMGs and technician work material (I just put the drill to tease good ol' Mark).


You can actually insert weapons in the rear (Kelso, shut it). You can also the medical bed pushes itself to the back.


View of the piloting area. I believe that the pilot is suposed to go there, at least, so I have been told...


A simple cut away view, so as to show that this thing can pack up ten minifigures inside, one of them a pilot. You can put in twenty: just make sure you are an expert at crushing and cramming things in one spot. :)


And for the first five days, in a premium edition, you can have your own Kelso doll. Do whatever you want to it. Note: please don't state what gruesome acts would occur.

Creator's comment:
- Well, after loads of photos, editing, throwing away pictures and making new ones all over again, here it is, TAK, in other words, The "Rear-end" Kicker. This thing took me four full weeks of work. I actually tore it apart and remade it a couple of times, and like they say, third time's the charm. I made this thing with the objective of looking good, but at the same time give it some playability. You can easily take off plates, engines, lids and whatever you can think off, without destroying the main structure. I seriously don't recall how long it is, but I am pretty sure it is longer than 30 studs, and shorter than 80, so no problems there. I thank Mark for accepting the challenge, and making this a really fun experience, I thank those that stod beside me, when many other thought I would just fall to the ground, one of which is Dylan B, since, even without knowing him believed in the possibility of me beating Smelso.
Anyway, thanks for watching and MOC on...

A nice ship, a bit boxy, but well deserving of a 5/5. Although, it's not the smartest thing to challenge the man to a MOCoff who has an entire studio of endless Legos. Nice work non-the-less though.

lol I hoped to the last Kelso would have be disqualified for using non-LEGO parts (custom parts). That would have resized his head a bit :D He outbuilt you anyway, but as far as personal taste goes, I like this a bit more. It has that sleek, cartoonish (or toyish) appearance I love.

Excellent build, photography, and presentation. I actually like the blocky shape and the engine design is very clean. This certainly looks like a very playable moc. Mark's level of detail, however, took it over the top and Mark earned my vote as well, which is too bad as I was actually rooting for you. Nice build and no shame in this build. Lee.

First...what I like. I love the engine pods and the functionality you have going on there. The color scheme is decent, very utilitarian, and fits with the suggested age of the craft. I also like all of the weapons storage and the ladder up to the roof. Now for the improvements that could be made. It's blocky...and I'm not a big fan of that. I understand it is a transport, but it could really benefit from some SNOT work to better shape the craft. Additional greebling on the surface instead of all of the tiles could also help make it look more interesting. The verdict? You did a great job here and I think you should take this MOC and continue refining it. You have something good going here that could be great. Keep working on it and modding it! In the end though...I have to give my vote to Kelso. Great job.

Well James, I gotta hand it to ya here. You really pulled out (not something I'm all that familiar with) all the stops on this one. Color me impressed young one. In the end, my vote has to go with Mark. While there's nothing lacking with your ship, he got ya beat on detail. And the details my friend, is where they say the devil lies. An excellent job with this though. Good luck with the other judges and hold your head high. ~ Chris.

This is a good MOC with good photography and presentation. It's much better than what I built when I was your age in 2005 (http://mocpages.com/moc.php/9521). Overall I like the smoothness of the hull and the play features. My main critique is the boxy shape, but I've made that mistake in the past. Mark corrects this by adding details to create more surfaces, making the box-shaped hull look less obvious. Thus, I give my vote to Mark. However, itís more important that this challenge brought out your best creation; to me that makes you a winner in your own right.

Now that is just ridiculous! JAMES! I didn't know you were capable of this beautiful work. I was expecting an easy, "Mark, have your vote." BUT NO! You have given the man a run for his money. It's funny, cause he is much more experienced and older, Now... hold on. I am going to wait a sec and look a bit more before I come up with a decision

You're in luck, I hear Phipson is an expert at crushing and cramming things into tight spaces! Hahaha! But I digress... You've done a fine job of staring down the barrel and managing not to wet yourself. This is a pretty cool ship that almost looks tough enough to withstand Kelso's onslaught. The interior work was especially well done and the fact that you spent so much time on it shows you took this challenge VERY seriously. In the end, IMHO, Kelso will take this, but you have shown that you have the ability to rise to the occasion and put your best foot forward. From what I've seen, this is your best work to date. Like Rocky, you may not win this, but you went the distance and are still standing! Eye of the Tiger, man, Eye of the Tiger!~H

Way to go, James! Some nice work. Love all of the playability elements, particularly with the interior. I'll leave judgement to those we've given the power to, but thanks for making the MOC-off a challenge and whole mess'a fun! Good luck, Amigo.
