Project X - The bottom of the barrel
About this creation
...Or the bottom of the MOC, anyway!

For George Kemper's "Project X" collaborative, I was given the subway section of the build. Yep...put me right down at the bottom. Personally, I think George was fully aware of the irony and did it on purpose, but he hasn't admitted to anything yet!

So I WAS going to go through this whole elaborate post where sigKelso and SigPhipson would have a little adventure while giving you illustrious MOCpages viewers the dime tour. This is how I had it starting out, with the two of them heading down into the subway...


























It was about this point where I realized my story line was getting more and more lengthy and complicated; I mean, eleven images in, and I hadn't even gotten to the introduction yet. I knew not only would it not get finished in time (being that I leave for a vacation in two days), but that it was tantamount to torture to put you guys through all of the nonsense I was planning.

So now, I've mercifully gone, from this point forward in this post, with a few abbreviated highlights from the original concept. Some of the other things I was planning to incorporate were...



The two of us running into Superman changing in the phone booth. (The kids reading this are asking "what's a phone booth?")...




Jar-jar Binks defacing public property...




Sean Kenney driven over the edge...




And a brief encounter with Lee Jones...




Yeah, there was some other stuff I was messing with, too. I had Phipson's pants getting caught in the escalator and being ripped off. Sean Kenney projectile vomiting on Chris. Chris stepping back to take a picture and getting run over by a careening subway train. You know, all the usual stuff. Unfortunately, time just wouldn't allow for it. But hey...it's the thought that counts, right?



So after all that absurdity, I'll leave you with what this post was REALLY supposed to be about in the first place; my addition to George's "Project X" collaborative...




For those lucky enough to be able to attend Brickworld in a couple of weeks, look for it there. And for the rest of you, plenty of images will be appearing here on MOCpages during and after the con.

Thanks for visiting! Until next time, my fellow addicts.

8/25/12 - Wow, I'd almost forgotten about this one, until today when it ended up as MOTD. Thought I should mention - now that Georges "secret project" has come and gone - that this small scene was for a Matrix collaboration. And this little section was for the shoot out between Neo and Agent Smith.

Nice build...I bet your severed head was worth at least $0.02 towards a bottle of Nighttrain to a subway vagabond.

Very nice Mr. Kelso! I'm having a problem on my MOC's. The rating won't show 1 "I like it" until 2 people like it. Do you know what's going on?

Haha Fantastic! This is a little edgier than Lego's own comics but still has that Lego Magazine comic book feel to it which not many people can incorporate. Glad you posted! :D

Judging by the comment, I'm guessing C.J.'s parents are cousins? ANYWAY, this is top notch, grade A certified awesomeness! The funny part is, we drove Sean to drink in the first MONTH! But at least you finally figured out where he's been hiding. Have fun on your vacation and I'll see you in TWO WEEKS! (why does that sound like a threat? hahaha) ~ Chris.

Great job Mark! I wish I could say that I planned having your build at the bottom but I didn't. I'm really looking forward to seeing the whole project come together in a couple of weeks! I still have to finish my part of it! I've got 5 stories done and 2 more to go. See you soon!-George

Funny stuff, Buddy!! It came out really nice...true as heck to the original. Weesaa gonna have a fine exhibit! (and don't tease Chris about the doughnuts...we're not sure he's completely recovered from the "Look at the size of those sprinkles!!" incident yet.) A couple weeks and a couple days to go!

LMAO excellent build! Great details on that subway. Can't say I've ever actually been in one, but from the images I've seen they seem pretty filthy. I think you've captured that essence very well by having Phipson escort you down there.

I could write a whole page with "lol", but to respect my own dignity of AFOL, I would just say that once again, your ability to create hilarious story AND brillant build/pics/edit is amazing. However, if you could know what is related to the letter "X" in french, you would laugh out loud too ;-) Fantastic work !

You know, you should limit yourself to just one talent, building or writing. It's just not fair that you can build such fabulous surroundings only to follow it up with gut-busting writing; and that was the 'abridged' version! The subway looks fantastic with all it's little details; the phone booth, fire extinguisher, piping, it's all awesome. I really wish I could see first hand this little project that Mr. Kemper has you all slaving away on, so far everything looks great.~H
