1952 War of the Worlds Fighting Machine
Here it is! The first part of the long expected WOTW dio!
About this creation
All we're gonna do right here is go back, way back into the fifties. 1952 as a matter a fact... Its a quiet day at the park, everything is happening exactly as it has been happening for countless years...


"Howdy, Jed!"
"Goodday, Jude!"



There's nothing like some good chicken with some tasty sauce, these days...



The statue of "the knight fighting a banana" ever still as always...



The workers keeping the park tidy and clean...





A nice day for a walk in the park, feeding the ducks, enjoying the peace...



Officer Phipson keeping an eye on the parked cars...
"Gee, I do like that yellow convertible...If only I could take it a spin..."







A cosy and happy atmosphere on the sidewalks, near a park, sometime in the fifties...



Untill...a strange floating machine appears, hovering towards the park, almost without a sound. The flying thing has a big arm on top and at the end of it a red eye, turning slowly from left to right and back again as if it's searching for something...







Gio: "What the...look at that thing! It's huge, and it flies very slow and without a sound. What do think it is, guys?"
Officer Phipson: "Heck, how should I know? Maybe it's Russian?"



Meanwhile, a panic has struck on the sidewalk!
Worker:" Why is everybody running? Oh, I get it...Phipson's got gass again?"



"Holy Guacamole!"



Clone:"Sith happens! I'm in the wrong movie and I hate every minute of it!"



There's a joke with a cook and a hot dog in this one, I just know it!"



The statue takes a run for it too. "I've got a bad feeling about this."



Looks like number eleven crapped his pants...



Only five brave souls remain standing in front of the alien vessel. Sorry, did I say brave? I meant stupid. It's such a fine line between brave and stupid...



Gio: "Whoa, just look at the thing...isn't it beautifull?"
Phipson: "I don't care what it is, it can't park here! Shoo! Shoo! Get out of here! Go hang around somewhere else!"



And then the heatray spoke...



And again...






TO BE CONTINUED...




Well, that's all for part I, folks! Thanks for looking and leave a comment while you're here!

I cannot use words to explain how amazing the design and build for the tripod is. Oh, wait, I think I just did! Can you please send me instructions so I can build that Martian fighting machine? Or, possibly post a new creation with instructions? If you want to send it to me, my email is as follows: jpzeidler@comcast.net. Thanks, and I love it!

the crreation is great but the real machine is much more scarier, in addition its not actually a flying machine but rather a kenetic tripod (by kenetic u mean three 'legs' of pure energy)

That ship is just perfect! Fantastic dio and story set up. Liked how the statue made a run for it too, a cliché star wars quote in hand! Love that heat beam.

Gio, I love this vig! My favorite by far is the actual ship! Especially the laser pic you took, it's spot on! Looking forward to seeing what you do with the next episode!

Great start Gio! Can't wait to see the rest of it! Oh, and you're right. It IS a very thin line... one that I step over ALL the time. ~ Chris.

They say that good things come to those who wait, but in this case, pure awesomeness comes to those who wait! The ship is, wait for it, out of this world! The eye, the laser beam, the shape, are all well conceived. Can't wait to see the next installment.~H

Like some others here, I'm struck by the awesome-ish-ly-ness of our alien invader. I admit I'm a bit concerned that there won't be any town left to pillage if the heat ray hits Phipson and all of that gas!

Hey, Giovanni, you sure did a nice job with your creation. Not only was your creation nice but your comments almost remind me a bit of the Glomshire Knights, if not a lot of old Mel Brooks and Zucker Brothers/Abrams/Proft comedies. Also, you have an epic win with the classic Star Wars quote and I also like the Clone Trooper and his comment, too. By the way, I also have seen the 1952 version of the film as well as the 2004 one and I own a copy of the book somewhere in storage, I think, anyway.

Outrageous! A tricky machine to build, at best...and you've done a super job! When I saw the title, I had my doubts...but Giovanni is now officially invading the Earth! Totally awesome MOC-

Great job on the ship itself and the laser beam. Also I believe every town should have a statue of a knight fighting a banana.

George Pal would be proud. Get those humans! Yay, Martians! Did you just sneeze? Have a tissue. Invading is hard work, maybe you need a lie down. see ya. garth

The UFO is simply beastly, but the whole rest of the dio is quite funny. I loved the "cook and hotdog" joke. Can't wait for the next part!

Very, very cool! The alien ship is just great. Loved the Clone Trooper in that old robot armor running away! HAHAHAHA. Did the statue actually get up and run off? HA! Great work.

Wowsers! What a nice job on the Martian vessel -- but all the other little bits and details (particularly fig placement and positioning) are awesome. I love the laser beam as well. This thing is going to be a blast . . . literally.
